Between Worlds (Sandwell Districts For Rich mix) - (6:42) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: UK producer Nick Dunton resurfaces with a glorious tribute to Richard Polson, his deceased partner in the 65D Mavericks. The title is apposite: swirling chords and ethereal pads create an atmospheric path, mapping out a world between the stars and the earth where Dunton's former collaborator may inhabiting. It was always going to be tricky for any other artist to rework music that is so deeply personal, but Sandwell District do a respectful version, their subtle, chrome-plated rhythms pulsing insistently as Dunton's musical composition gracefully ebbs and flows. As techno tributes go, it's on a par with Styrax Leaves' "In Loving Memory".

Echoes From The Deep (Submersion mix) - (10:27) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Like former 65D Maverick member Dunton's Between Worlds release, Journeys to the Deep Volume 1 starts off in reflective mode. "Oikumene (65,000 Leagues mix)" is a deeply layered arrangement with swathes of floating chords building, but, despite the addition of heavy claps, never makes it onto the dancefloor. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but, as the Submersion remix of "Echoes From The Deep" shows, the UK producer is happy to inhabit both spheres. Starting off with all the ponderous kosmische elegance of Tangerine Dream or early Kraftwerk, the space dust-caked synths progress to reveal a jazzy underbelly and the kind of understated beats last heard on Model 500's "Starlight". Sublime stuff.

Ever Vivid - "Facing The Heavens" - (7:40) 121 BPM
BUY
Nick Dunton - "Leaving The Planet" - (7:02) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: If the ethereal end of techno is your thing, then you'd be well advised to check this latest missive on Surface. The brilliantly named Ever Vivid - an alias for Nick Dunton - delivers "Facing The Heavens", an introspective affair, led by airy synths and subtle chord melodies. Despite the use of hissing, nagging percussion, the overall approach is suited to home listening rather than the dancefloor. Dunton's "Leaving the Planet", under his own name, is a somewhat different proposition: here the bass is more pulsing and the combination of soaring synths and dubby chords create a sonic vapour trail that'll prove irresistible for those who love it deep.

Review: Persian has been dropping Jungle bombs since the early 90s via his Existence Is Resistance imprint. Here he revisits his '95 monster, "Dangerous" in three different styles (the housey original is also included). First up is his own 're-fix', which retains those luscious Metalheadz-era Jungle pads with a bouncier, contemporary beat. DJ Texta works his magic on his dubstep mix, boasting some mighty big bass sounds and dubby effects. Finally Nick Dunton's mix is a deep and sprawling synth epic, and possibly the standout tune of the whole release.
