November 2017

The good folk at Echospace have combed through the vaults and unearthed a gem here. Prior to Stephen Hitchell’s releases under monikers including Soultek and Intrusion, he spent the second half of the ‘90s crafting off-the-cuff analog dreamscapes as Radius. Obsolete Machines never quite made it to the pressing plant back in 2001, and has spent the past 16 years gathering dust. Why we’ll never know, but what’s for certain is that Hitchell has crafted music of considerable beauty here. The richly realised Detroit techno that has been the backbone of Hitchell’s other projects here comes as if beamed in from the bottom of the sea, with just as much space given to murky ambiences and cavernous reverberating space. Comes with a bunch of contemporary reworkings by Hitchell and Echospace boss Rod Modell under their cv313 banner.

  1. 1 Ethersonic Radius 1:52
