Presence is experimental techno at it best and is also my personal favorite from the Basic Channel duo. Obviously it seems whatever they touched turned into gold but they certainly recorded a special moment & passage of music here.

sounds like it might have happened when they switched colours at the plant during manufacturing - I expect they pressed clear, then green then black. it's not unusual.

My copy also has green in the vinyl if held up to the light, intentional or manufacturing error?

My copy 100% genuine however is solid black but has a green tint to the vinyl?

The first track thing makes you fall into a crazy and relaxing parallel world,like some kind of calm and sweet dream. If you stop to listen to this thing,you can easily get trapped to nearly 20 minutes of pure dub and chord melody that cleans your mind out like few tracks i ever found in every genre of Electronic Music. The other side seems very darker compared to the other,its like spinning and waiting for more melody,than a deep and obscure share of dub pops out the speaker. It can be also tripping,but dont listen this close to any close minded parent or friend,if you dont want to be seem as a odd person. But the first side is for all audiences,especially good for Sex too!

Personally,i find this the best Basic Channel/Rhythm & Sound release.

It took me time to figure that B side is an inside out. I always thought this track doesn't go ahead, like it is locked!

Cyrus inversion, possibly the best piece of any music i own. This track is simple beautiful, it's like no other. It's long length keeps you tranced into another dimension and you most certainly get hypnotised by those DEEP DEEP chords, now... how the hell do they acheive that sound? basic channel, truly


Words cannot describe how gorgeous and stunning this song is my friends

Inversion is an immense piece of music, music you could picture being the soundtrack for a movie filmed in the deepest abyss of the ocean. I fall victim to the relentless simple chord progressions buried in the calm of rain just as the storm rolls in. The 909 drums and eerie sequences add to the hypnotizing effect and right as your allured to its power the song is over. 17+ minutes and your wondering where the time went? The best way to describe this is, metallic rain from the sky with the metallic scrapes being the melody, static tones the drizzle and thunder in the distance acting as bass. Perfect music for a Sunday evening in the rain off the shore, somehow its so calming. Beautiful
