I am always hungry for new music. I think I continue to consume the sounds, so that I can recreate that moment. That moment of when one hears that sound, and is taken away out of this world into another. That moment, reminiscent of your childhood memories, when you would put on your headphones and melt away in the hypnotic beat beyond all thought and worries. It is the music you would turn to, for answers and escape. Remember? I do. And so I search, among the hundreds of albums, for the one that would bring back those memories, and take me to that place. What can I say? I think with Liumin I have found it. Big thanks to Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell of echospace [detroit]. First of all, I think it's a huge plus, when an album seamlessly transitions from one track to another. That solidifies my reasoning for listening from beginning to end. The tracks flow smoothly, in that velvety, dubbed out, and incredibly hypnotic beat. The duo is not apologetic for letting the tracks evolve over the ten minute marker. Although some may find this rolling rhythm a bit repetitive, I think that it's only after the first six or seven minutes that the mind latches on to the beat and new environments unfold. If there was a science behind this process, then Hitchell and Modell should base their thesis on their work, their magic, and their art. Incredibly simplistic, yet awesomely complex percussion is drenched in vaporous white noise, as it envelopes the chords that swirl around in the stereo field of infinite dimensions. Complimented with a touch of field recordings captured by Modell in Tokyo, Japan, the kick trends on, falling out of the foreground of the typical warehouse sound system, into the ether of organic pulse. For me, the absolute masterpieces on the album include "BCN Dub" and "Maglev".Read more ›

Liumin is one of the best minimalist dub albums to be released in recent memory. On playlists and in live mixes it will fit snugly against Soultek, Intrusion, Variant, Convexion, Maurizio, Gas, and The Sight Below. It's very different than any of these, and much more unique in many regards. But it's still right up this alley and down some surprising side-streets that will become more evident with repeated listens.

It's hard to compare this to The Coldest Season because they are very different albums. All I can say is get them both, throw in Deepchord's Vantage Isle Sessions, and upgrade your headphones. You'll have a very happy summer.

These guys keeping pushing the envelope. Just when you thought dub tech had become derivative, Hitchell and Modell push it in a different direction. This isn't The Coldest Season and it isn't Hitchell's Intrusion project.

Whereas on most of their other releases the "dub" bass is at the forefront, on some of these tracks, especially the first one, it is lurking in the background. The field recordings and other random static is more in the foreground; rather than seeking out the patterns emerging from the dub, the listener is seeking out the bass from amidst the random noises of life. They've basically flipped the scrip.

As you continue to flow into the album, they venture deeper into the bass, most notably on the 'BCN Dub' track. Some of the tracks have an almost danceable groove. The 'icy' feel of The Coldest Season still emerges but this one has added some sunshine.

They've basically taken what worked before and added depth to it. Each track blends seamlessly into the next as the listener goes deeper into the analog.

It's definitely a top ten for 2010. Don't expect, just listen.

The bonus CD of reworked field recordings is a special treat and makes this one well worth owning.

I like this type of thing, so I may not be the most objective here. From the Basic Channel template, but still noteworthy for it's attention to detail. Organic, shifting. Progressive.
