Welkin EPMp3s & jpegs
Madrid's Analogical Force continues its run and are proud to present 'Welkin EP', second in the catalogue and first from Niagara Falls, NY-based Reid Dunn (well known as WISP) under his misterious DWAALLICHT alias. Many -like us- have been looking forward long time for this stuff, now the wait is over. Just when the 10th anniversary of the still acclaimed 'NRTHNDR' album on now-defunct Sublight label, and six years after 'We Miss You' and 'The Shimmering Hour' on the Rephlex camp, the Aphex Twin-approved producer is back exploring spectral acidish territories, intricate drum patterns with thick synths, nervous breaks and rhythms, nostalgic rising-falling melodies...waving this elements to his will. It seems that Reid has deemed the time right to do what he does best. A record so immune to contemporary styles and aesthetics are almost by definition timeless, and it's tempting to call 'Welkin EP' that. Dwaallicht doesn't hide his influences; AFX, Squarepusher and Mike Paradinas are obvious reference points, but add Tangerine Dream, Phuture 303 or Mr Fingers to the mix and you'll get a sense of the scope of Reid's personal vision. Braindancers: 'Welkin EP' will all remind you exactly why you loved this talented guy for so long and why hes one of the most uncompromising artists working in electronic music this days. Limited to 400 handnumbered copies. Absolutely essential!
