It all kicked of with the Peace of Mind EP on Ai Records, an absolute belter of a 12 with all 4 tracks being of the highest quality. The two standout tunes for me are the gorgeous electronica of ‘Peace of Mind (Electrosoul)’ and the pure electro filth of ‘Tone’; posted below for your listening pleasure.
Now if that scared you a little and you like your electronics chilled then I suggest donning your finest trainspotting tweeds and going on a hunt for the highly limited ‘Lacan / Episode' release on Modern Love as the deep techno minimalism of Lacan will be sure not to disappoint.
Basically, all of this guy’s stuff is worth checking out and he’s one of the few artists I’m happy to shell out on without listening to the tracks beforehand so I suggest you raid your piggy banks and go out and get some.
The last track I’ll leave you with is another rare release by him, this time one which came out on a free CD to mark the hundredth release of De:Bug magazine; a fine publication although I guess most of our readers will find it easier to digest when they start doing an English version (here’s hoping!)
