Approaching 20 years since its original release (2007 via Smallfish), now remastered to pure analogue bliss from the original ampex tape masters. The sound on display here I could imagine as a soundtrack while submerging in a submersible diving deeper than the Marianas trench! The B side now features an epic live version captured @ AIR, Tokyo, Japan. Made in the heart of Detroit, with love!

Thoughts:

"like a Rhythm & Sound tape stretched out on a Jamaican beach until the edges begin to fray and curl unpredictably. Gorgeous stuff - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -Boomkat

"if a nuclear holocaust occurred, and the United States was nearly wiped out but somehow Detroit was spared, this would be the music that the survivors listened to daily!" -Answers In Dreams

“cv313's ultra-vaporous stepper “Subtraktive,” which captures in a single track the project's persona in its essential form!" -Textura

"cv313's incredible attention to detail and depth makes this 12" one of the most important post Basic Channel records to own!" -URB

"aquatic, enveloping, oceanic and vaporous, as if voyaging on a deep sea dive and never hitting the ocean floor!" -Stylus

CREDITS: w + p by cv313 in the heart of Detroit. Originally released as a limited edition 3" CD on Smallfish Records, London, UK (2007). Remastered in Echospace by Stephen Hitchell in 2017. Recut from BASF 1/4" analog tape masters.

LIMITED EDITION 2024 [REMASTERED UK PRESSING EDITION] 150 GRAM MIDNIGHT BLUE VIRGIN VINYL (SEALED IN IMPORTED JAPANESE POLY SLEEVE W/FLAP] ONLY 50 COPIES WILL BE ON HAND!

Remastered into analogue bliss from the original ampex tape masters conducted at the NSC mastering lab in Detroit by the legendary Ron Murphy (R.I.P.) Recorded from a live session near the heart of Detroit, using countless modular synths, analog devices and custom made effects producing a hypnotic state like no other; tugs right at the heartstrings!

Thoughts:

“Beyond The Clouds" is, for many, one of Hitchell and Modell’s key masterpieces!" -Igloo Magazine

"Special stuff from Stephen Hitchell and Rod Modell's cv313 alias, dropping two sturdy but spectral House grooves backed with an epic 22 minute live recording made in "the heart of Detroit". The A-side mixes of 'Seconds To Forever' are made for that non-exclusive club in the clouds, the one where every track is a gaseous anthem which only requires a slow smile of approval. Their original mix is all about strafing bassline movements whose gentle kinetic motions expel intoxicating clouds of dreamy sleep-techno tones for that deliciously anaesthetised suspension. The 'Remodel' organises the effervescence into curling dub chords while a layer of tilted congas from The Howard Street Rhythm Section trickles through the mist. If you need the bliss to last longer, flip over for the ultimate catharsis of a 22 minute+ 'Reprise' which was mastered for a forthcoming CD release by legendary NSC mastering engineer, Ron Murphy before he sadly passed away. Hitchell has since retouched the track with some help from Mark Richardson and his analogue desk at Prairie Cat Mastering, sloping the momentum for a near-infinite psychedelic exploration. Sublime!" -Boomkat

"It would be fair to say that Seconds To Forever is something of a CV313 classic. Echospace men Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell first unveiled it on a clear vinyl 12" back in 2010, before returning to it a year later, delivering a 76-minute live version that stretched across a limited edition CD. Here they revisit it once more, gathering together previously released versions and unheard interpretations, including fine solo reworks from Modell and Hitchell under their Deepchord and Intrusion aliases. While the duo's distinctive dub techno rhythms take centre stage, the album's more ambient excursions - particularly the Variant 'reduction' of "Beyond The Clouds" (the original B-side on the Seconds To Forever 12") - really standing out." -Juno

"Beautiful dusty dubby techno with light colorful melodies appearing above the fog." -Clone

10 Year anniversary edition, recut and remastered from the analogue tape masters from Bazza's Alchemy Mastering in London; focusing and enriching every finite detail. This EP features 2 new pieces of sonic meditation residing somewhere between space and time, somewhere in the cosmos. With the title track, "Beyond Starlit Sky", vaporous atmospheres emerge from the distance, while ghostly apparitions and analog modulations rise to the surface of a truly hypnotizing rhythm, submerging the mind deep into an analog world. With the "Live" version a mixture of themes from "Fading Lights" and "Beyond Starlit Sky" find an engaging syncopation, resting somewhere in the ether. Those who loved Echospace's "The Coldest Season" on Modern Love will have plenty to adore here, timeless in all senses of the word.

Clear Vinyl - the first new 12" single from Echospace in 2014, engineered and mixed down from 1/4" analog tape and mastered at Alchemy Sublime new material from the Echospace chamber, engineered and mixed down from 1/4" analog tape and mastered by Bazza at Alchemy. Only their 2nd new 12" of 2014, 'Beyond Starlit Sky' projects nine minutes of claggy atmosphere and subtly rolling waves of sub bass picking up to an insistent skank by the time the waves part. Flipside, they offer an extended 14 minute live version reshuffled and swept around with tantric patience. -Boomkat

Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell’s cv313 project is one of the long-standing fixtures of the Echospace imprint, representing something of a definitive guide to the dub techno sound once it ran on from the Basic Channel days. “Under Starlit Sky” has everything you could wish for from the pair, as distant and hazy pads undulate through cloying reverbs and the beats chug away with a regal patience, utterly blissful in its overall effect. The “live” take on the flip is a more simmering offering that pares the swathes of pads down and lets a murmuring rhythmic construction take the mantle, without moving far from the realms of moody, immersive dub techno of course. -Juno

Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell's cv313 project present new material, one of two 12"s released simultaneously on their Echospace Detroit label. Beyond Starlit Sky is a bright, shimmering affair, full of the depth for which the pair are known but more attuned to the starlit sky of the title than the immersive darkness one might expect. Pulsing percussion and dancing synth pads come together to make this a truly holistic experience. A live take refashions these elements, showing a different side to the same track and further exhibiting showing off the duo's talents, if they were ever in doubt. -Bleep

REPRESS LANDED!

It's been 15 years since this originally hit the shelves, which literally took the immersive atmospheric sound of Echospace and brought it right to the floor. With cv313's "Sailingstars" the spirit continues as they go on to preach the gospel of deep with a rippling exercise in space and bass. A sort of slow motion movement in tone and 38 hz sub frequency which nearly verges on the disturbing, a sonic threshold quite hard to achieve in a vinyl cut. The power of repetition and subtle atmosphere are clearly demonstrated here by bringing the listener to an almost hypnotic state within its melodic spatial grooves. The B side offers two immense reductions, equally effective providing a low end throb, analog spirit and organic textures captured in zero gravity, it's like truly sailing among the stars. Lovingly remastered and mixed down from the original analog 1/4" reel to reel tape, strictly limited to 300 copies for the world.

Analogue dream sequences and field recordings captured in the magical lands of "lake of the clouds" in the porcupine mountains state park, Michigan, in 2019. This recording was inspired by the vast emptiness of space observed in a stargazers fantasy land of epic widescreen deep-sky perspectives, a place where distant lights become a sonic kaleidoscope in your subconscious. This near hour long composition is laser focused on every intricate development; slowly rotating the lens of perception in and out of focus until becoming an oceanic submersion of the mind; producing near hallucinatory sensations. This is an experience where nature's mysterious depths unravel and morph into a synthetic sonic world of the undiscovered.

This edition features phase90's "Infinitati" lovingly remastered by Bazza (Abbey Road Studios/Radiohead) @ Alchemy Mastering, London. Features unreleased new material with a beautiful hand silk screened designed by the very talented Lindsay Todd of Firecracker' Records & House Of Traps.

The debut album from the Phase90 project, inspired by the possessive quality of supernatural textures, field recordings and found sounds conducted at the Calvary Cemetery. This project celebrates progress of the soul, a concept which stems from metempsychosis. The material on this album can be interpreted as sinistral--dark,, heavy due to the hardware and its currencies emitted by its source--the phase 90. An acidic dream of tramsliminality, this is the first Phase90 project to materialize in its essence, unitl now..

Reviews & Press:

"A reissue of Echospace’s Phase90 project with remastered audio, unreleased material, and packaging handled by Lindsay Todd. Inspired by field recordings from Calvary Cemetery this is haunting music, acidic dreams for those who enjoy a walk on the wrong side." -Fact Magazine (Release of the week)

Is Field recordings from the cemetery may become a leaven of reflection on the fragility of our lives?

Under the banner of Phase90 hiding Stephen Hitchell's latest project, known so far from the business under the names Echospace, cv313 and Variant. As always, this time an American artist combines his music two seemingly seemingly different approaches - technical and metaphysical.

The very name of the project refers us to the famous effect of Phase 90, which in the history of popular music was most often used by guitarists, but also by keyboardists. On the other hand, the basis for recording placed on "Infinitati" became ambient sounds recorded on ... in Calvary Cemetery. How fell combination of warm sound of that effect of funerary registrations?

The album begins in a truly sinister way - from industrial noise that writhing static streak ("Infinitati") leads us directly to the minimalist composition, stretched between dub bass and muffled pulsing techno beats ("Ango"). With time, however, there are tribal percussion ("Dolor"), which combine a deep synth waves of chords heard through a sewage system in the background. ("Terra").

The focal point of the album is a twenty-minute composition "Vinci". This is one of the greatest achievements in the aquatic spatial recordings he's known for. The muffled beats slowly emerge to the fore, leading to a mysterious noises and wheezing - all flashing hypnotic rhythms embedded in the ambient context. This soothing topic of time is the beginning of the next song - connecting industrial electronics inclusions of illustrative "Targum".

The final of the set consists of two recordings referring to the classic school of Jamaican dub. Free bit of the bridge meter brings with it massive bass thumping procession, and on the rhythmic backbone of overflowing waves of dream-like keys ("Passio"). Over time, rhythmic pulses fade, giving way to looped noise, which, like the sound of the receding train, take with them slowly fading passages of ambient emissions ("Quam").

The combination of hot dub effects of the provenance of ominous sounds straight from industrial and raise their rhythm in the style of techno minimalism work flawlessly. This creates a monochrome music sound crisscrossed uniquely, which creates an amazing atmosphere, balancing on the verge of relief and anxiety. If anyone had ever even get that elusive moment of reflection on the passing of connecting time with fascination, the world on the other side of our lives - it is on this album! -Nowamuzyka Magazine

"Steven Hitchell rekindles his Phase90 alias with an absorbing reshuffle of its debut album, 'Infinitati' including unreleased and remastered material. This is arguably some of the strongest material from any of his myriad pseudonyms, mostly thanks to an sort of frayed, agitated approach to his rhythms, preferring knotty, sparking shuffles and delicate dub bounce rather than his patented heavy trodders. The atmospheres too are dealt with a nimble hand, full of organically diffused melody and dusty chain reactions occurring around the sound-sphere with dreamy, elusive quality.

If you've ever needed a place to dip your toes in Deepchord/Echospace's oceans of sound, this is it." -Boomkat

"Insomniacs and nightcrawlers unite, Phase90 has released a big record! We would call it an album, but it’s actually a 2x12”, which is pretty different. It’s like an album for someone who wants to keep it casual and low-key, which works for dub techno stuff, arguably the most low-key genre out there. So yeah it’s this Phase90 guy that’s also Intrusion and Variant - just when you thought that dub techno had loads of producers involved, it turns out that there’s just one. Amazing.

Infinitati brings the murk. The misty, rainy haze of the city at night is omnipresent, bringing in cosmic sounds and imagery, buried radio static that could be obscured voices for all I know, and those sparse, bleak minor chord stabs. You can hear some flanger subtly soaring over the hissy atmospherics in the background, the perfect accompaniment to a space trip or two. Beat-wise, it begins with something even more downtempo than a slow 4x4, before building up to just that after 5 mins or so. This solitary kick is joined by some little fizzy white noise snares on the B side, becoming even more defined as you get further on into the album. 2x12, sorry. It almost sounds like a normal snare on the unreleased mix of ‘Vinci’, a track that has more mechanistic looping than most of them on here. There’re also some minitreats to be found, the last track on the B side being some crazy little ambient clunk piece that shifts between the ears. Loverly.

Oh and don’t forget, it’s all smothered in a lake of reverb and cavernous dub delay. What do you expect? It’s Echospace..." -Norman Records

"Phase90 is a solo project from Detroit artist Stephen Hitchell, better known for his solo work as Variant and for making up the numbers in dub techno groups Echospace and cv313. Debut album Infinitati is a spacious and haunted piece – dark, ghostly, yet not exactly sinister. This is a great introduction to the aquatic world of echospace as a whole and builds upon the foundations laid down on LP's such as The Coldest Season and the various incarnations of the ever evolving echospace production unit. Perfect winter listening for anyone into The Detroit Escalator Company, Basic Channel or the Modern Love label." -Bleep

"Echospace Detroit's double LP edition of Phase90's project, lovingly remastered by Bazza (Abbey Road Studios / Thom Yorke) @ Alchemy Mastering, London. Features unreleased new material and beautiful silk screened metallic sleeves and art direction from the very talented Lindsay Todd of Firecracker Recordings & House Of Traps. The entire album was bounced down to 1/4" analog tape prior to remastering to preserve the integrity of the masters. This project was deeply inspired by the possessive quality of supernatural textures, field recordings and found sounds conducted at the Calvary Cemetery. There's something quite haunting in the underlying tone of these recordings, an ominous feeling not for the fainthearted. "Infinitati" celebrates the progression of the soul, a concept which stems from metempsychosis. Echospace / Deepchord fans will not be disappointed; these are unfathomably deep textures and pools of sound in which to get immersed, bringing whole new depths to the dub-techno blueprint. Crackles of white noise interference meet with rich plumes of organic bass hum while dub fragments and artifacts litter the mix. This truly is the dog's bollocks for anyone with a penchant for dub or techno production. Unrivalled." -Piccadilly

There's something quite haunting in the underlying tone of these recordings, an ominous feeling not for the fainthearted. "Infinitati" celebrates the progression of the soul, a concept which stems from metempsychosis. Echospace / Deepchord fans will not be disappointed; these are unfathomably deep textures and pools of sound in which to get immersed, bringing whole new depths to the dub-techno blueprint. Crackles of white noise interference meet with rich plumes of organic bass hum while dub fragments and artifacts litter the mix. This truly is the dog's bollocks for anyone with a penchant for dub or techno production. Unrivalled." -Piccadilly

The entire album was bounced down to 1/4" analog tape to preserve the integrity of the masters. Professionally replicated CD packaged in eco friendly digipak case with custom metallic artwork, housed in a resealable poly sleeve.

We're proud to announce Intrusion (cv313/echospace) reworks of Phase90's, "Infinitati" an album Boomkat hailed as, "a place to dip your toes in Deepchord/Echospace's oceans of sound, this is it." A night time walk on the wrong side of the street, creepy and ominous in nature as a result of the possessive quality of supernatural textures, field recordings and found sounds conducted at the Calvary Cemetery. Utilizing the original 1/4" tape recordings and individual sounds, Intrusion builds on the foundation steps further, using the mixing board as the primary instrument as well as, tape splicing, 12 bit loop stations and other audio wizardry.

The material on this album can be interpreted as sinistral--dark,, heavy due to the hardware and its currencies emitted by its source--the phase 90. An acidic dream somewhere in the ether...

Tracklist:

1 Infinitati (Intrusion Remake) 2 Ango (Intrusion Metamorphose) 3 Dolor (Intrusion Restructure) 4 Terram (Intrusion Infernal Dub) 5 Vincis (Intrusion's Possession Dub) 6 Targum (Intrusion's Sedation) 7 Passus (Intrusion Deconstruction) 8 Quam (Intrusion Manipulation)

Thoughts:

"Steven Hitchell rekindles his Phase90 alias with an absorbing reshuffle of its debut album, 'Infinitati' including unreleased and remastered material.

This is arguably some of the strongest material from any of his myriad pseudonyms, mostly thanks to an sort of frayed, agitated approach to his rhythms, preferring knotty, sparking shuffles and delicate dub bounce rather than his patented heavy trodders.

The atmospheres too are dealt with a nimble hand, full of organically diffused melody and dusty chain reactions occurring around the sound-sphere with dreamy, elusive quality.

If you've ever needed a place to dip your toes in Deepchord/Echospace's oceans of sound, this is it!" -Boomkat

"Insomniacs and nightcrawlers unite, Phase90 has released a big record! We would call it an album, but it’s actually a 2x12”, which is pretty different. It’s like an album for someone who wants to keep it casual and low-key, which works for dub techno stuff, arguably the most low-key genre out there. So yeah it’s this Phase90 guy that’s also Intrusion and Variant - just when you thought that dub techno had loads of producers involved, it turns out that there’s just one. Amazing.

Infinitati brings the murk. The misty, rainy haze of the city at night is omnipresent, bringing in cosmic sounds and imagery, buried radio static that could be obscured voices for all I know, and those sparse, bleak minor chord stabs. You can hear some flanger subtly soaring over the hissy atmospherics in the background, the perfect accompaniment to a space trip or two. Beat-wise, it begins with something even more downtempo than a slow 4x4, before building up to just that after 5 mins or so. This solitary kick is joined by some little fizzy white noise snares on the B side, becoming even more defined as you get further on into the album. 2x12, sorry. It almost sounds like a normal snare on the unreleased mix of ‘Vinci’, a track that has more mechanistic looping than most of them on here. There’re also some minitreats to be found, the last track on the B side being some crazy little ambient clunk piece that shifts between the ears. Loverly.

Oh and don’t forget, it’s all smothered in a lake of reverb and cavernous dub delay. What do you expect? It’s Echospace..." -Norman Records

"A reissue of Echospace’s Phase90 project with remastered audio, unreleased material, and packaging handled by Lindsay Todd. Inspired by field recordings from Calvary Cemetery this is haunting music, acidic dreams for those who enjoy a walk on the wrong side." -Fact Magazine (Release of the week)

"Phase90 is a solo project from Detroit artist Stephen Hitchell, better known for his solo work as Variant and for making up the numbers in dub techno groups Echospace and cv313. Debut album Infinitati is a spacious and haunted piece – dark, ghostly, yet not exactly sinister. This is a great introduction to the aquatic world of echospace as a whole and builds upon the foundations laid down on LP's such as The Coldest Season and the various incarnations of the ever evolving echospace production unit. Perfect winter listening for anyone into The Detroit Escalator Company, Basic Channel or the Modern Love label." -Bleep

"Echospace Detroit's double LP edition of Phase90's project, lovingly remastered by Bazza (Abbey Road Studios / Thom Yorke) @ Alchemy Mastering, London.
