DANIEL AVERY - SONG FOR ALPHA VINYL (180G 2LP GATEFOLD)
180G 2LP VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 6th April 2018
The long-awaited second album from the London-based electronica producer, whose 2013 debut Drone Logic was full of psychedelic rave sounding club stompers. Song For Alpha sees Avery diverting his music down the path of ambient techno but this is still noticeably Avery with all his classic psychedelic rave-inspired touches. This is a record to soundtrack those late night/early morning raves when you zone in on yourself and lose yourself to the mood of the music (you know the ones!)!
For Fans Of: KiNK, Roman Flugel, Pantha du Prince, The Field
"Five years after his critically acclaimed debut Drone Logic, London-based producer Daniel Avery releases his highly anticipated second album Song For Alpha through Phantasy. With newfound energy and time to develop, Avery’s sonic vocabulary has expanded. Here, the booming sound of the big room is brilliantly countered by the music of the small hours. Where celestial ambient lullabies 'First Light' and 'Days From Now' sit perfectly next to the mesmeric techno assault of 'Diminuendo' and 'Sensation'; where both 'Projector' and 'Clear' evoke early rave records, only ones engulfed by waves of beautiful cyclonic distortion. William Basinski, Warp’s Artificial Intelligence, Brian Eno plus his own excursions with Alessandro Cortini all serve as touchstones for a record that sees Avery take his signature psychedelic-electronic sound to new dimensions, a sound that plays to the head as much as the body."
