Artist: ATOBE, SHINICHI
Title: Butterfly Effect
Format: CD
Label: Demdike Stare
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Shinichi Atobe has managed to stay off the grid since he made an appearance on Basic Channels Chain Reaction imprint back in 2001. He delivered the second-to-last 12" on the label and then disappeared without a trace, leaving behind a solitary record thats been selling for crazy money and a trail of speculation that has led some people to wonder whether the project was in fact the work of someone on the Basic Channel payroll. That killer Chain Reaction 12" has also been a longtime favorite of Demdike Stare, who have been trying to follow the trail and make contact with Atobe for some time, whoever he turned out to be. A lead from the Basic Channel office turned up an address in Japan and -- unbelievably -- an album full of archival and new material. Demdike painstakingly assembled and compiled the material for this debut album. And what a weird and brilliant album it is -- deploying a slow-churn opener that sounds like a syrupy Actress track, before working through a brilliantly sharp and tactile nine-minute piano house roller that sounds like DJ Sprinkles at his most bittersweet, then diving headlong into a heady, Vainqueur-inspired drone-world. Its a confounding album, full of odd little signatures that give the whole thing a timeless feeling completely detached from the zeitgeist, like a sound bubble from another era. This is only the second album release on Demdike Stares DDS imprint, following the release of Nate Youngs Regression Vol. 3 (Other Days) (DDS 007LP) in 2013. Who knows what they might turn up next? The CD is housed in a hand-stamped and numbered outer sleeve. Mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy." - Demdike Stare.

Title: Ship-Scope
Format: 12"
Label: Demdike Stare
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Limited hand-stamped reissue. A massive personal favorite of Demdike Stares, Shinichi Atobes 2001 Ship-Scope 12" was the Chain Reaction labels penultimate release, and, with the benefit of hindsight, also one of its most sublime offerings. This necessary 2015 reissue arrives in the wake of Atobes much-loved archival salvage, Butterfly Effect (DDS 010CD), which caused quite a ripple upon its release in 2014. Notable for its unusually sweeter, dreamier ambient tone, especially when compared with the rest of Chain Reaction catalog, this is a must-have for followers of the romantic streak in Ross 154, Convextion, and classic Chain Reaction." - Demdike Stare.

Title: World
Format: LP
Label: Demdike Stare
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Demdike Stare prise another absolute gem from Japans Shinichi Atobe; presenting six tracks of original, previously unreleased material recorded some time in the last 20 years in Saitama, Japan, perfectly complementing the sublime ambient house zen of his Butterfly Effect album (DDS 010CD, 2014). The reclusive artist has seen a lot of justified, and somewhat overdue, praise surrounding the reissue of his sole early release, the Ship Scope 12" by Demdike Stare (DDS 014EP, 2015), originally issued by Berlins Chain Reaction label in 2001, whilst the dispatch of his distinguished and subtly diverse Butterfly Effect album arguably came as a surprise for many heads who had him pegged out solely as a dub house producer. His new World will expand those preconceptions again, coursing a beautifully louche and debonair vibe from the most minimal loops and motifs - the kind that one could play all day and would hardly ever tire of hearing them. The supple, floating DX7 bass contours and vaporous jazz chords of "Intro" start up like some Chicago or NYC deep house classic lost in its own reverie, and could go on for as long as it wants, before the rainy day piano house melancholy of "World 1" promptly inverts that supple aesthetic with a fizzing, hazy sort of depth perception and "World 2" switches again to a sort of trim dub momentum in stepping, swinging equilibrium, riding the groove like no other. Turn over and the lingering, slowed-down stroke of "World 3" sounds like it got waylaid from a session with Wolfgang Voigt, whilst "World 4" jettisons the bass altogether to whiz and skip away in the highest registers with an intoxicatingly heady, mesmerizing appeal which also makes the uniquely brittle but spacious breakbeat trip of "World 5" so narcotically seductive. This is highly idiosyncratic, exceptional material, with the highest recommendations to anyone with a taste for house and ambients refined, soulful and experimental echelons. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton. RIYL: DJ Sprinkles, Larry Heard, Kassem Mosse, SND." - Demdike Stare.
