Joachim Spieth to release his first LP on Affin.
Words by Rudy ZIGLIARA | 30th October 2017
Joachim Spieth’s first Long Play is difficult to avoid, to be released on his own imprint Affin. For the 10th anniversary of Affin, Joachim Spieth embark us on an emotional journey never before heard.
Irradiance kicks off with atmospheric notes, the first leg of the celestial trip. The melancholic background are moving slowly but surely. Amazing tops, nice bottom and the soft of background mingle with the fuzzy kicks. The enigmatic baseline of Dispersion and Luciferin gallops like a warhorse riding into a uphill battle.
Candela slow down and brings us back to the post-clubbing spirit. The unison melody and pads prepares a new trip high in the sky.
The next three, Absorptio, Annihilatio and Lambda oscillate between contemplative techno and truly industrial rhythmic sounds. The combination of spectral notes and layers of warm synth pad creates a sense of front to back. A constant motion through the layers of Irradiance shape the sonic landscape. At the going down of the sun, Irradiance warms us.
Joachim Spieth finishes beautifully with an unexpected track. Radiance and the birds singing remind us that after the winter comes spring.
Release Date : 2nd November 2017
