A double gatefold, mastered to subtle perfection by Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin, RSOT delves even further into his own unique mix of the subtly trancey, emotionally driven and understated forward motion of his previous productions. As always, his tracks have an undeniable song quality, the emotions within referencing the small and mundane, whilst the inspiration behind often references a so-called bigger picture. The whole album fades in and out of focus and attention, giving its different parts room to breathe and develop.
Extended ambient techno epic from the elusive Red Stars Over Tokyo, backed with an excellent remix by Cologne's Magazine collective, appearing on the increasingly impressive Testtoon label who recently served up that amazing Shoc Corridor reissue. The original 'Crossing A Frozen Red Sea' is home listening techno of a beautiful and all-too-rare calibre, relatively lo-fi but with a lush-minded intent and effect that has us entirely seduced with its allusions to the classic dystopia of 1984's 'Threads' documentary.
The Positronium EP is the second release by Oubys on our Testtoon label. After releasing his Terra Incognita album last year, we felt that the Positronium II track on that album deserved a 12″ version of its own. The original Positronium II is an intense, almost psychedelic piece of electronic music, compatible even to dancefloors for DJ’s with open-minded ears and a taste for experiment. There was always a first part of the track that we did not include on the album, but which we always intended to release.
