[Release] GRIT – As I Look To The Sky From The Surface Of The Water EP (Meanwhile Records 022)

With a title like that you know G.R.I.T. was on a mission to make this EP deep. I’m hoping we will see a digital release of this sometime soon. This is a double 12″ vinyl featuring 6 beautifully crafted dub techno tracks. 5 tracks taking up high above the clouds with 1 more minimal/dark track (Safer Retreat) that keeps a nice balance across the EP. This is an essential purchase and gets the Dub Techno Approved stamp.

Oh and if you are wondering where the beautiful image I used for this blog post is from well it’s from an anime with a similarly long title called “Children who chase lost voices from deep below” and it is, without-a-doubt, the most beautiful anime I have ever seen. I highly recommend you to watch it.

Tracklist

1. As I Look To The Sky From The Surface Of The Water
2. TTX-E2
3. Sodium Vapour
4. Safer Retreat
5. Clouded Horizon
6. Evoke

Producing and remixing electronic music since 1995 first using hardware tools such as Rolands MC 505 and a 303 with some EFX tools. Now the studio is hardware and software in symbiosis. Using some oldschool synths from the 70’s and 80’s for the love of the Lo-Fi feeling of those machines! The sounds are digitized thoughts and emotions. Personal favourite styles in music include Detroit and dubby electronics, Deep House, Dub, Roots Reggae, drones, Ambient and some experimental stuff. He also releases music as Sven Schienhammer.

Versalife – Observing The Outland

Versalife – Observing The Outland Taken from the EP, Night Time Activities Part 2 (Clone West Coast Series 2011) | DARK | FORCES | Boris Bunnik (Versalifr, Conforce, Vernon Felicity)… Boris Bunnik is a restless producer from Terschelling, Holland, who strives only to combine digital and analogue together into atmospheric, well designed pieces of music, be they of House, Techno or Dub descent. With such an honest mission, it’s no wonder the man known as Boris Bunnik has had continued success recently, with a number of singles, EPs and albums coming on respected imprints like, Clone, Delsin, Meanwhile and Rush Hour. As a live performer too he is garnering ever more support with gigs everywhere from New York to Tokyo helping to establish him as one of contemporary Techno’s finest craftsmen. Since initially being turned on to Acid and Rave thanks to a tape his father found in the wild nature, Conforce has been keen to go his own way. Despite being influenced back then by the likes of GERD, Dave Angel and Luke Slater (whose records he often spun); early Dutch Rave and Techno and, more recently, by peers and friends including producers and DJ’s from the northern Dutch Techno scene, his music simply represents a feeling inside of him, rather than any particular artist, scene or genre. “I don’t tend to think in styles. Good music explains itself.I just go with the flow and see where the musical elements lead me, so I’m very versatile: for me, music is just pure self expression
