Product Description

Anterior Space may strike some listeners of a certain age as an echo of the gilded age of "armchair techno" exemplified by Warp Records's Artificial Intelligence comps. The convergence of the cerebral and the blissful in the four epic compositions HOLOVR (aka Jimmy Billingham) finesses from his analog and digital synths are similar to early-'90s pieces by Black Dog, B12, and others. Discussing the creation of Anterior Space, which is the first HOLOVR release to not feature beats, Billingham reveals, "Dropping drums gave me a bit more freedom in terms of tempo and rhythm, and it was actually really liberating. Having fewer elements in a track also meant it was possible to record live, which is my preferred way of working, as you can capture an actual snapshot of time and a natural, in-the-moment negotiation of the different elements of a track. I'd know a track was ready if I could sit there and listen to it looping round for long periods of time and really get lost in it, and then I'd try and capture a nice section of that in the space of 10 minutes or whatever."

You can hear this on Anterior Space's opening 11-minute track, "Into Light". Its subtle gradations of warped tones and implied rhythms teem with hyperactive elegance. The slow, mobile-like rotation of synth baubles over a foundation of yearning, icy drones on "Apparent Motion" creates the illusion of a shimmering stasis, but there's actually a great deal happening here. "There's lots of subtle variation in the tracks, with pattern length differences and parameter tweaks," Billingham says. "I'm really into the hypnotic effect that you can get from this; the feeling of constant change within something that is otherwise staying the same." Thankfully, all these elements on "Apparent Motion" coalesce into a celestial chill-out zone and serve as an aural icepack for your overworked mind. On "Temporary, Autonomous", the lightest of acidic squelches prod this track into a similar rarefied ether as the less propulsive cuts on Plastikman's Sheet One (1993). Eleven-minute closer "Involution" is a gradual procession of globular ambience that seems always to be changing and yet also emitting a steady-state glow. Billingham also records under the aliases Tidal, Venn Rain, Journey Of Mind and Holographic Mind. Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering; Artwork by Chloe Harris; 180 gram vinyl in reverse board jacket.
