Token readies the third installment of the Ø [Phase] Versions series, that pays homage to Ashley Burchett’s illustrious discography, reissuing new mixes of classic material. On this third edition, Burchett turns in new, peak time interpretations of tracks Espresso, Obscura & The Crossover – alongside a stunning remix from fellow UK Techno auteur Steve Bicknell, who reworks Token classic Xylo 3.
Steve Bicknell has been at the forefront of the ever-growing electronic music since it’s infancy. His career spanning over 25 years, has seen Steve grow as a Dj and producer to one of the UK’s most established, accomplished and respected techno artists and credited by many as a true pioneer. After stepping away from producing and traveling as a Dj, in 2005, Steve resurfaced in 2013, producing three e.p’s for his Cosmic records imprint, exclusive tracks for Ostgut Ton, leading to the birth of 6dimensions and the collaborative project LSD with Function and Luke Slater., Now he returns to 6dimensions for his fifth release on the label, presenting a four track EP ”Story Character”, filled with crafted sound design, mind-shifting, dance-floor techno.
LSD is the techno supergroup of Luke Slater, Steve Bicknell, David Sumner. They launch their new self-titled LSD imprint with a six track double pack of pure techno. Focusing on psychedelic aspects of techno while drawing on the unique rhythmic sensibilities of each of the three members, between them this group have all had a major impact on the global techno scene over the last two decades. Their new collaborative double pack carries on where the debut left off with six tracks of melodic and mind melting techno with surreal atmospheres and propulsive drum programming that takes you into the next dimension.
We are not alone. Through the centuries we have created theories, heard stories, made films, and of course, music that is deeply inspired by the idea of the unknown, and the cosmos. We went far and deep into this cosmic void to gather 4 visionairs to help us present a new series on the label. “Visitations – Chapter 1”, touches down through sonic dimensions with Damon Wild, Ben Sims, Steve Bicknell and Tadeo. These artists are amongst the few key figures who established the foundations of Techno music and continue to do so decades later…. Their influences are also undeniable to the aesthetics and sound of “Chronicle” and so we are more then honored to present each one of them on our new series. Their contribution to this compilation is of extraordinary measure, connected both in vision and purpose they provide us with extraterrestrial sounds that challenges the listener both intellectually and emotionally with each track standing strongly on its own while functioning in a cohesive way bringing the vision of Chronicle Records into focus.
