PREVIEW: Richard Fearless(Death In Vegas) – Higher Electronic States


With the heady proliferation of dance acts emerging from the buoyant ambient / techno / house scene in the 90’s few you felt come near to matching the amorphous shape shifting stylising of Death in Vegas, always just ahead of the curve, they were one of few true pioneers in this multi-disciplined arena to navigate new horizons and blend old school templates to new sound frontiers. And so late last night there where we minding our business and in to our listening space shimmers ‘Higher Electronic States’ by Richard Fearless, a forthcoming 12 inch on Fearless’ own Drone imprint. Already greeted fondly by the likes of Avery, ghost culture and factory floor this 7 minute hypno grooved juggernaut provides for a head tripping experience and ushers forth dimpled in subtronic landscapes sculptured in mesmeric waveforms spared upon minimalist techno tides, before slowly evolving and gaining density with the coalescing appearance of drop kicking funky jitters and shimmer toned orbital swathes, only to rupture amid a blaze of sun spot euphoria at the 6.07 mark. Bliss.
