VINE VOICEon 8 August 2002
This delightful CD is a must for any fan of System 7 and Derrick May's music. It contains a new System 7 song (E-Merge) and the un-released 'Icon' by Derrick May, solo.
The rest of the songs featured here are either originals or re-worked versions of classic System 7/Derrick May tracks.
Opener 'Altitude' is one of the first tracks ever done by Hillage/Giraudy/May. It's beautiful swirling atmospherics point to an even more fruitful future of collaborations. The 'Groovy Intent' mix of 'Mysterious Traveller' is a superb track. Starting off as a pounding techno track, it slowly evolves in a complex, yet very groove orientated track.
But for the real standout tracks on this album, you have to look at Derrick May's previously unreleased 'Icon'. It's a superb Detroit Techno soundscape, more centred on the soulful rather than the dance element. 'Prototype 1' (Electron Mix) is a stunning track. It's everything we've come to admire about System 7 and their music. I think it shows what their best at, beautiful atmospheric techno and ambient songs, rather than their drum'n'bass centred period circa the 'Golden Section' album. The song itself works itself into a collage of sounds, all held together with May's superb keyboard style and Hillage and Giraudy's groove.
This is a wonderful album, and it offers much more than the average remix collection from some other techno/electronic groups.
