Spacious Sunday morning afterhours techno awash with incredible atmospherics. Stunning!
Parallel 9 is one of Steve Rachmad's monikers, under which he crafts deep and slightly dubby techno. Tell us, exactly how long have you been waiting and longing for a new Parallel 9 EP?! Well, we'll tell you, Dominus - the previous Parallel 9 EP on Music Man - dates from 2005, so a follow-up was long overdue. But it's there, so start getting over your excitement and put the needle on the record and go with the flow. This is class A material, from the master himself. Three full tracks and three tools, on one fine double pack. From Music Man, with love. Sven Väth: Nice Ep! Dixon: Thanks. Will play Magnetic reversal. marcel dettmann: thanks! 2562: still loving dominus, magnetic reversal souds like a worthy follow up. thanks! Marcel Fengler: Great work Steve!! Thanx .. gregor tresher: classic & timeless sound, and especially Magnetic Reversal really stands out to me, thanks for the great music!! Joel Mull: Full Support on this Legendary project. Ive heard a couple of these tracks before. Great to finaly see them released!! :) Thank you Joel philip sherburne (wire, pitchfork): sweet. i don't have much room for dub techno in my life these days, but this manages to be "dub techno" without getting stuck in the usual cliches. "magnetic reversal" is the clear standout here, but "desert vibe" is also quite nice. Thilo Schneider (groove magazine): review in our next issue
