James Bell Excellent sound design, with sharp percussive sounds and airy synths. Some of the tracks are upbeat whilst others are majestic and ambient. Check out my YouTube video for my full review: www.youtube.com/watch Favorite track: Brancaster Coast.

phntmsmshr It’s like a lullaby for artificial intelligence, full of piercing glitches and tics overlaying ethereal strings and pads in a glorious soundscape of depth and separation. The pitch and frequencies of each instrumented element contrast and complement to eliminate any bleeding of one sound into another, making this a headphone purist’s utopia. It’s science with a soul. Favorite track: REM Sleep Research.

about

Lapsus Records proudly presents the third release in its “Perennial” series, dedicated to reissuing contemporary electronica classics from established artists.

The third release is from Christopher Scott Leary, who over the last two decades has produced a plethora of material under his pseudonym, Ochre. 2019 marks 15 years since the original release of “A Midsummer Nice Dream” in 2004; on British label Toytronic, which pushed Leary to the forefront of the experimental electronic music sphere. To celebrate the release’s fifteenth anniversary, Lapsus Records will reissue a special collector’s edition of this IDM classic in the form of a double tri-colour vinyl release, remastered by John McCaig (panicStudios). It will also include a full-colour print of the new artwork, redesigned by Portland (Oregon) illustrator Nathaniel Reeves, who has worked alongside Ochre for over ten years.

This special deluxe reissue entitled “A Midsummer Nice Dream (15th Anniversary Edition)”, features unreleased material from the same period and includes three bonus tracks on its vinyl version, six on its digital version, making it a truly unique release. It therefore offers a golden opportunity to rediscover an album that navigates through several genre domains such as ambient, IDM and experimental electronica in its purest form, stylistically reminiscent of the likes of Autechre, conveying a sound considerably ahead of its time. In its entirety “A Midsummer Nice Dream” is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable electronica glitch albums to be released in the 2000s, when the genre experienced its zenith, largely thanks to the advent of significant breakthroughs in digital production tools.
