The Detroit Escalator Company
Soundtrack [313] + 4
Heavy 180g black vinyl + digital
Expanded Edition w/ 4 bonus tracks, japanese obi, a 72 photography collage of the many people who inspired this music and liner notes by composer Neil Ollivierra aka The Detroit Escalator Company.
Sirio Ultra Black debossed sleeve 400gsm
Half Speed Mastering, 45 rpm

Sublime and perfectly produced cutting-edge ambient techno masterpiece made in 1996 by unsung Detroit hero Neil Ollivierra, an album as underrated as it is essential.
25 years after its original release on UK label Ferox Records, Soundtrack [313] still provides a deeply futuristic aesthetic experience, warm and emotional electronics, along with glistening melody lines that create a peaceful, relaxed environment. This album possesses a formidable aptitude to always instill its listeners with a life-affirming feeling of serenity.
A true timeless and unique classic that exists within its own genre and which still pushes the envelope of electronic music that transcends the club experience.

This expanded release includes 4 bonus tracks (6 tracks on CD / digital), a liner note by the artist, and valuable photographic footage from his personal archives.

This reissue has been mastered from original files by Sidney Claire Meyer at Emil Berliner (former Deutsche Grammophon studios in Berlin), using the half speed mastering process, and pressed on heavy vinyl at 45rpm.
25th anniversary audiophile edition.

For fans of Detroit Techno, Global Communications, Black Dog, Manuel Goettsching, Tangerine Dream, Susumu Yokota, und Klaus Schulze. 

Extremely highly recommended.

(damn, that's a really bad quality upload)

Force is on the Soundtrack [313] album and on this Peacefrog compilation that has all the tracks from both DEC's short-lived eponymous label releases, The Braille EP and Shifting Gears, couple of album tracks and Orange, which is exclusive to it.

The other DEC album, Black Buildings, is also available from Peacefrog.

Black Buildings/EP has two exclusive tracks, Plumb and Nebulae, not available anywhere else; Blue Science/Between Dubnotes: The EP, has exclusives, too. Stitch is an exclusive compilation track.

Haven’t listened to this guy in years. It’s been so nice to rediscover. Amazing, astral ambient-techno.

It's a shame he stopped releasing music. He used to run Transmat. After that he became an entertainment lawyer and head of legal at Netflix. Smart guy.

Thanks for that link - great read. Had no idea of his backstory. He seems like a true polymath.
