Gradient - Ep - Van Bonn Records 01

by Van Bonn

supported by


Van Bonn has developed a well-deserved reputation as a forward-thinking dub music producer. He is tying up electronic listening music with dance music structures for the german label Telrae and Trapez since 2011, but his newest invention Van Bonn01 is another step forward. Van Bonn records now for the first time provides him with a platform, that is his own. It is a sound laboratory pushing his ideas as well as giving him the possibility to feature like minded people. The first edition on vinyl, comes in dark red with a nice artwork. Gradient (CPH Dub) shows a new side with Van Bonn, expressing a certain form of industrial & romantic privacy in a very radical way. His epic 12 minute track explores the time and space continuum in ways of symmetry. This is a perfect extension of what we know from various dub techno productions of the past. Rich filtered delays balanced with a monotony of a mighty & distant beat, makes it an hypnotic piece of music. Gradient in its original version is the more hardish and forceful..companion of the A-side, being more raw an direct. Van Bonn uses here a lot of FX sounds to build a bubble which perfectly embeds the stomping machine liked beat. The >Do not resist the Beat< owner Milton Bradley and artist on Prologue (and more) has delivered a remix of >Gradient< in his genuine style avoiding commercialism and creating his own atmospheric, claustrophobic, cinematic style of techno. Listen here to his remix for Van Bonn.
