*Excerpts from the album. Available from Experimedia.net.* It's fair to say that Deep Distance is incredibly honoured to be able to bring you this stunning new set from JD EMMANUEL. A legendary figure whose seminal works from 1981 / 1982, (especially the Riley / Glass / Reich inspired "Wizards") on his own private press imprint "North Star Productions", were given fresh relevance upon re-release in 2007 by Lieven Martens' (Dolphins Into the Future).
Picked up later by Important Records, "Wizards" never quite slipped out of focus, it's meditational, blissful pulse inspiring all manner of kosmische / minimal synth heads with it‘s uniquely personal warmth; and it's timely reissues couple with Aguirre's release of this LP's preceding set; "Trance Formations I" have firmly cemented Emmanuel's reputation aided by stunning yet infrequent live sets in recent years.
The set here, in the artist's own words "was composed during the 1990's on the road while travelling cross country for my job; using a Yamaha QY-10 synth module/sequencer or Korg X5DR synth module and a Novation MM10 keyboard into my Windows laptop using Cakewalk computer sequencing/recording software. Finishing them on my PC with Cakewalk with either/and 2 Ensoniq ESQ-M's synthesizer modules and a Korg X5DR synthesizer module."
Six beautifully personal, zoned pieces and an essential companion to Emmanuel's esteemed body of work. Released on The Great Pop Supplement's side label "Deep Distance" in an edition of 500, March 2013.
