Christian Vance – Too Long on Venus [Haul Music]

it’s the chilling semi-echo of those churchbell synth stabs, xylophonin’ round the vintage groove that propels this 16-min monster forward. as the atmosphere builds to a flare-up, venus all up in smoke, glaciers blazin’ like a motherfucker, all hell crystallizes at a minute 30 seconds in—time to throw your fist up!

and this is a worthy cause—a flip on the very things that’ve made the current wave of tough techno exciting yet somewhat lifeless and contrived: its design fierce, its claws growing colder and colder as we head further into the unknown. but ‘venus,’ which retains those virtues, carries its soul on every layer of its sleeve.
