I've been listening to this release a lot this week and it is insanely good. Trying to work out the details on the vinyl release. 






Blurb from Fact: http://www.factmag.com/2016/08/22/convextion-2845-album-released/



2845 is out now on Mojuba sub-label a.r.t.less.

Dallas techno producer Convextion has released his first album in 10 years.

2845 is the first long-player from veteran producer Gerard Hanson since 2006’s self-titled album for Down Low Music. It arrives on a.r.t.less, the sub-label of Don Williams’ Mojuba Records.

As RA reports, 2845 appeared on Discogs over the weekend, and features seven tracks, two of which were edited by Williams.

Despite gaining a strong reputation during the late ‘90s and early 2000s with a string of atmospheric 12″s for labels such as Matrix, VEXT and Tektite Recordings, Hanson has kept a low profile for much of the last decade. Earlier this year he reemerged with a 12″ on Acido.

Hanson’s music has been compared to the catalogue of Chain Reaction and Basic Channel, and his 1997 track ‘Ebulience’ featured on FACT’s list of the 25 best dub techno tracks of all time.

2845 is out now. Listen to a preview of the album below.

Was at the Clone Records shop today and they highly recommended this to me so I bought it (in Clone I trust)... Really great upon first listen, incredibly warm and lush :)

Blows my mind that what could be Album of the year has a thread with 4 comments and the stupid fucking Metallica album thread has 4 pages. 


Received my vinyl copy a couple of weeks ago.

fantastic release.


two day edit. Been listening while reading Neal Stephenson, which has been a natural pairing. But where this really brings me is into memories of playing unreal tournament in 1999 late at night. The lower tempo fits in between cyber death matches.

Most definitely. Convextion self titled LP is also a 10/10 in my book.

      I know they was mentioned by the man himself in the Structures and Rhythms thread, but I really think this release needs to get some pub.  One of the (many) great travesties I noticed when scanning through my Bandcamp collection is that only four other people have purchased this!
      All of the Archived Tracks releases are special, and this is no exception.  File next to: Black Secret Technology, ICBYD, or Ae's Anti ep.

      This is my first track in months, so I'm trying to ease myself back into making music with something fairly simple and straightforward. If there's anything you'd like me to bear in mind for next time, please let me know. I'd like to avoid getting stuck in habits, so I think I'm going to start pushing myself harder in the future, breaking out of this comfort zone a bit. I just wanted to make an easy track first! :)

      Luxus Varta – Everything Is Nothing (Hubble Telescope Series Vol. 1)
      feat. Paris The Black FU (Detroit Grand Pubahs)

      supported by Objekt

      Description: For the past 25 years, the space telescope "Hubble" has been orbiting 540 kilometers above Earth. Black holes, iridescent gas mist, distant planets: Hubble has changed our view of the cosmos by capturing some incredible photos of our galaxy. Without the Hubble telescope, we would not know such beautiful images of space, and have discovered many different perspectives of Earth too. Feeling inspired by the journey into space, SolarOneMusic has been working hard to create their own Hubble Telescope Series, which captures the feeling of space exploration through different experimental dance-floor tracks. As a homage to the Hubble Telescope and all the great scientists and engineers at the NASA and ESA and each part of the series comes with a cover print picture taken by the Hubble Telescope. The series consists of 3 releases featuring E.R.P., Heinrich Mueller, Rudolph Klorzeiger, The Exaltics, Robert Heise, Crotaphytus and Luxus Varta.

      Featured for the first part of the series, is the talented artist Emeric Di Paolo aka Luxus Varta. Emeric starts playing drums in different punk-rock bands before being interested in electronic music. 2005 he meets Paris The Black FU and the twisted universe of Detroit Grand Pubahs. Looking for a drummer, Paris offers him to collaborate on several tracks for the two upcoming albums. What follows is an artistic complicity which results in live performances, videos and studio recordings. Paris The Black Fu has a feature on this release too.

      "Floo" - feat. Paris The Black FU is a spacey, atmospheric sound bed with a incomparable, hypnotic voice from Paris The Black FU. "Kuft" the first track of this release sounds like a space trip to another galaxy with his pulsating bassline and drexciyan soundscapes. "Ieloh" has a super warm melody with contrasting futuristic cracking sounds. Breigs is a twinkling sound bombardment with a mysterious voice inside. The last track called "Voxpol" completes the release with an agile, jolting texture, an alien-like conversation. Don’t miss this journey into the deep space. Release date is November/December 2015. Supported by Objekt, Ben UFO, Maelstrom, The Exaltics, Paris The Black FU, Mr O…

      Artist biography:
      Emeric Di Paolo starts playing drums in different punk-rock bands before being interested in electronic music. This new way of expression becomes quickly the main one, leading him to set up his own studio and to play live from 2000. Five years later, he meets Paris The Black FU and the twisted universe of Detroit Grand Pubahs. Looking for a drummer, Paris offers him to collaborate on several tracks for the two upcoming albums. What follows is an artistic complicity which results in live performances, videos and studio recordings.

      Meanwhile, Emeric produces an ambient album called "Le silence n'existe pas" under the name Sine Qua Non, and diversifies his sonic explorations using electric guitars, prepared instruments, field recordings, etc…

      In 2009 he joins Techmarine Bottom Feeders, a side project of Paris The Black FU. One more opportunity for the two partners to combine their dark vision of techno and to go further in experimentation. After all these years of electronic adventures, it's now time to realize his own electro project, in order to finally bring his unreleased material to light. 2014 is the starting point for a more personal work, with an underground signature, distorted sounds and deep melodies : This is Luxus Varta.​
