After months of planning and hard work, Cold Fiction Music’s third V.A. compilation arrives. Futur[e]cho began as an idea after the unexpected positive response of the first entirely dub-oriented release on the label: the DeepWarmth/Textural Being Split EP. Originally the idea of collecting people to work on a deep, dubby techno compilation album seemed too big for the scope of the label, but over time not only was the idea refined, but now the eight-month-long project is at an end, and the results are surprisingly good. The compilation, presented for your listening pleasure, features 11 notable artists in the present-day dubby, technoid scene. Coppice Halifax, Anton Mayer, Soap, Dublicator, Spiral Dub, Textural Being, ISA, DeepWarmth, As If, Spaceci and Fingers in the Noise all contribute works of art to the compilation, giving the final product a deep, ambient quality that was never anticipated when the idea was still just an idea.
Genre: Dub Techno
Eight months after the split EP with DeepWarmth, Textural Being makes a return trip to Cold Fiction Music with an EP of all new tracks. The tone here is similar to the tracks from the split, but more careful attention to detail and composition was spent on the tracks in this EP, resulting in something denser and darker that listeners can really get lost in. A small, four track bonus EP is included with the release, containing tracks by AXS, Zzzzra, Anton Mayer and Blamstrain, re-envisioned by Textural Being. The original version of Zzzzra’s track stop by Entropy Records can be heard here: http://entropy-records.com/
This split EP marks our first full Dub Techno release on the label and we couldn’t be more happy than to have Textural Being and DeepWarmth release with us. Both artists are up and comers in the Dub Techno scene and we are proud to release their first split EP here on the label. The split EP was inspired by Dublicator, Grit, Coppice Halifax, Hieronymus and Thomas Fehlmann. Also if you liked Sage Taylor’s album on our label then you should also love this one.
