Still one of the best Dub Techno albums ever made.
This begs for a reissue. It is awesome. Please. Someone have pity on those of us who want to own a physical copy of this gem.
This was one of the first and only records that I was ever introduced to by either Evan Marc (Bluetech) or Steve Hillage. I was very lucky to have discovered the album right when it was available.It would be expected, that a rarity like this gained a much higher rating than the music would merit. At the time I didn't even think about it much... However, this truly is one album, that actually is as good, (if not better) than the reviews would suggest.A minimalist, moody album - something that's not normally "my cup of tea" - I never disliked it even from the first listen. But as I've returned, this one seems to get better with each listen. It's even a bit haunting, when every listen is enjoyable (and different), but you don't think about it much and forget about it for some time... still it just comes back, and each time you welcome it with open arms.So, if you're expecting catchy melodies that hook you from the start, you'll likely be disappointed. But if you like the mood it creates at first - preferably on some calm occasions - you will surely embrace the whole album. It's filled with detail, that on the second listen you'll wonder why you didn't notice the first time around... and on the third one... Well, you get the point.I can't say that it's one of the greatest albums ever created... but now listening to it again, I really would like to. Personal preferences aside, it is definitely a set of some awesome music. This one will stay with me.5/5(PS. not selling)
Are all the tracks on this cd linked, ie no pauses between tracks ?
Sounds like the Amazon version is the same as the one on Bleep - the track lengths are longer but that's because the track separation is a mess, with the end of one track repeated at the beginning of the next, which spoils the listening experience massively. The version on Bluetech/Evan Marc's Bandcamp page is flawless. Shame I had to pay twice for the album to find that out.
Sad to hear. On CD, the play is seamless.
I thought so, but one seller I asked once said, that the tracks are separated! I ended up buying it on Amazon as download, and the tracks are really badly serparated with no fade or nothing. Very dissapointing.
Awesome album, the best Hillage's electronic project (wish I'd realeased in Vinyl LP)
Why has some smarty pants not done a 3x12" boot of this yet? :D
Are there any extra for personal non commercial use? Thanks
grand star
i had some cut to wax for personal use :)
great cd
you secret
great !
Absolutely amazing album by Evan Marc! Definately his best work to date, and that says a lot, since he's kind of dominated the slower sides of the psychedelic scene the last couple of years. "But this is techno", some would reply. Yes, I admit, it has the classical simple and monotone dub-techno beats, and some typical rhythmic techno-pads, but above that you have some of the trippiest ambient soundscapes you will ever come across.I remember coming home from a really bad techno party in Stockholm half a year ago. The vibe at the party wasn't good at all so I left at maybe 1am. So I was just starting to get quite far out when I got home to my appartment, and I was still in a "techno-mode". So I started meditating with this album on the stereo. It was, simply put, some magical 80 minutes. The music grabbed me, took me to some beautiful imaginary landscapes that I've never been to before. The soft, steady beats and all the intelligent, super complex pads and effects - it's just perfection!I am deeply thankful for what Evan Marc is doing, both as a producer and as a label manager. He's a true inspiration, and his pioneering labels Somnia and Native State are both must-follows for me nowadays. So hats off for one of the most important musical profiles in the psychedelic community at the moment! I'm very excited to see what this sound magician has to offer in the future...
I must admit, when Somnia first launched and began releasing its output in quantities of 777, I wondered if there was a direct correlation between/ode to the System 7 project (referred to by fans from the USA as, 777). My suspicions were later confirmed whilst visiting the official website of Somnia upon release of this gem when Evan declared System 7's influence on him and his work. Whilst I don't wish to repeat earlier comments made regarding the outstanding quality of the songwriting on this disc, this is a very fitting release indeed and one I'm glad that I own.
Mr. Evan Bartholomew... For connoisseurs of tech house, he is known as Evan Marc. For fiends of psybient and dubbed out downtempo, he is Bluetech - the West Coast producer of psychedelic influenced IDM sound (PsyDM) and an owner of a prolific record label, Native State Records. But a recent shift in economics of the music industry pushed Evan to create another independent label, Somnia, where along with a roster of modern classical musicians, he releases limited copies of minimal, electro-acoustic and ambient dreamscapes under his own name, Evan Bartholomew. In this fourth Somnia release, Dreamtime Submersible, Bartholomew compliments his ambient soundscapes with dub techno influences. This album is a continuous mix of evolving sweeps, that becomes a single unfolding composition within seven movements, each transforming and elaborating on the theme. And... ahem!... This time he is collaborating with a visionary extraordinaire, Steve Hillage, whose discography trails into the 70s - most notable for his ambient techno project with Miquette Giraudy, System 7. I can dedicate a whole exclusive article just to Hillage, and yes, you should feel ashamed if haven't heard the name. So all I can say is... wow... A continuous sweep of a story-telling emotion that is impossible to interrupt in mid-sentence. Not once a repeated pattern of signal processing attributes! Each note carrying an immeasurable delay that feeds into an eternal release of ADSR's tail. The duo paint volume envelopes with an artisan brush of an Irezumi master. There's another interesting phenomenon that I always experience when listening to Dreamtime Submersible which I must share. The album begins with a bass theme which evokes a 4/4 kick drum that my brain just can't place at the beginning of each measure. It comes in between the bars (as a hi-hat would). Try hard as I might, I can't get my brain to switch to the correct meter. I can only fix the perceived rhythm by pausing the track and restarting a few seconds later. Obviously, on different occasions that decision is made at various portions of the track. And then I'm all good. But because for the next ten minutes (at least during the first piece) there are no perceivable codas, or defining signs of a virtual bar, I end up listening to a unique melodic pattern every time. And approach on a different path towards the core of dreamtime. On each arrival, I am fully submerged in a warm trance of bliss and harmony. Enjoy...
Steve Hillage most notable band is GONG!;)
