Given yet that this is far from being an average release within the genre, i'm still quite a bit disappointed by the fact that andy stott seems to retreat all too much to the limited (and limiting) standards of dub techno 2.0. Of course the sound in itself has kind of a quality and an ongoing attraction for producers/listeners from all over. But, hey, this man did a great album and some super high class ep's five years ago far from being a narrow minded 'keeping it real by the standards of 1992' affair - dabbling so generously in deep house, minimalistic piano fragments, dubstep whateverness. That was, yet rooted in - and aiming for the 'we have such an incredibly good taste' grown-up-techno-crowd, outstanding measured against the, in an almost academic sense, high standards of the time.
Where (and why) did this precise diversity and the elegant unfunctional of mr. stott's music exhale to. Why not transcend all the hardliner dub techno academicism and keep the - literal - space the genre structurally allows open for experimnet than for fulfilling far too worn out standards? Are Teenage Fanclub, even, avant-garde after all?
The Replace ep still sounds fresh. Love 062 doesn't. Maybe the dub techno issue is just generally overrated through a lack of compositional vision. Space is space if someone makes his or her margins valuable inside of it and defines it inside out. Otherwise it results just in the repitition/exploitation of an outworn idiom. Mere sound design just for the matter of it. Please, leave that to the Hardwax highbrowists. Andy Stott, there's more to come round with.
