Stronghold

'Stronghold' was a one-off concept from Ferreira and Leiner that yielded only one EP, realised in 1994. The perfect frisson of dub aesthetic, electro-techno and ambient. A stripped-back juggernaut of cavern deep weaving rhythms, modular melodic sonar blips and driving bass. Total power. 'Stronghold' is one of those records that seems to morph, winding from skeletal electro snares into an off-the-rails kick drum driven freight train, pure soundsystem pressure. Only for the headstrong. Peep Dave Angel's seminal X-MIX from 1995 for a taste, the track features prominently early on in the mix to devastating effect. Also featured on this special and limited reissue of this most sought after and lesser spotted techno classic is a never heard before, unreleased and alternative take of 'Stronghold', from 1994. Lifted from DAT. It's possible that this newly unearthed version may be dubbier, trippier, perhaps more potent, more driving.....? But we'll let you decide.
