Delsin announce D5 retrospective
Classic and unreleased material from the UK deep techno artist features on the forthcoming Sides Of Space compilation.
John Harvey may not have that many releases in his discography as either Dimension 5 or the shortened D5, but the UK producer has still contributed his fair weight in label classics to the Delsin cause over the years. First appearing on the Amsterdam label in late 2001 with the Control Complex 12″, Harvey’s brand of deep, Detroit-influenced techno has manifested itself in the one album, Alien Artform, and a smattering of singles over an eight-year period. “Flotation Tank” is probably the one D5 track everyone knows, first appearing on the 2005 compilation Planet Delsin and then later getting a well-received 12″ release.
Back in 2013, the 100DSR series featured a new D5 production from Harvey in the shape of “Stem Cell,” suggesting the producer was still active in the studio despite the lack of any new releases since the turn of the decade. D5 fans will be excited to hear that some fresh produce from Harvey features on the forthcoming Sides Of Space, a weighty triple LP celebration of the artist also featuring classic and lost material. Due in November and some twelve tracks deep, five of thse are brand new, never before heard cuts, with the remainder sourced from old CDRs by Delsin label boss Marsel van der Wielen.
The aforementioned D5 classic “Flotation Tank” naturally features, as do all three tracks from the classic Neutrino 12″, first released in 2006, with the sublime track Delsin have named this retrospective after available to hear below.
Delsin will release Sides of Space by D5 on November 16.
