Label: Delsin Records
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all our readers and visitors. I hope you’re having a good time and/or got some great gifts. I’ve got a minute, so I figured I’d post up another record before I take my weekend pause.Â Delsin RecordsÂ continues to delight me with their upcoming release of Q3A’s debut full-lengthÂ Space Chamber. If you’re not familiar withÂ Delsin, they specialize in the chillier side of electronica and ambient; yes, they have dub techno too. Anyway, Q3A didn’t just come out of the blue. Rather,Â this is just another alias of one Route 8 – a Hungarian producer.Â Space Chamber‘s perfect for this wintry weather with its frosty synthesizer waves, throbbing bass and curious sampling. From what I can tell with the preview,Â Space Chamber seems to be well-produced ambient techno, although I’m not sure if there’re some surprises that we can’t hear yet. Listen toÂ Space Chamber below via the SoundCloud player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
Q3A is a new alias of Route 8, a producer who has credits on labels like Lobster Theremin and Nous as well as Black Venison. Now the producer serves up a sumptuous four track EP, Space Chamber, on the Delsin label and it touches on many different styles with equally great results.
First on the a-side is an expansive bit of well driven deep house with rich synths and cavernous innards that really suck you in. Next up is another serenely crafted bit of atmospheric house with dusty drums and lose hits all backed with heavenly pads and retro bass. The first of the b-side tracks is a chunky acid kicker with angelic vocals drifting up top as a controlled 303 line rips up the foreground. Spaced out and deep, driving yet emotive, it is a moving bit of club music before the B2 trips you out on a silvery electro tip with its icy lines and slap-funk snares. Overall, this is an expansive and perfectly formed EP and comes with a sleeve by Boris Tellegen.
