As one of the original British interpreters of Detroit's machine music Steve Pickton is an undisputed UK techno legend - his unique take on the original Detroit sound and his productions on his own labels as well as B12, Peacefrog and Kirk Degiorgio’s ART and op-Art imprints are acknowledged as sublime examples from this seminal period of UK Electronica. He’s probably best known for his work as Stasis but he's also released records as Phenomyna and Paul W. Teebrooke. His work is characterised by a singular vision that delivers a poignant and emotional blend of soul and synths seasoned with jazz, funk and sci-fi flavours.
This second release on his co-owned Fencepiece label features three majestic examples of his work and comes as a vinyl only, individually numbered, strictly limited edition. The celestial Tau is released for the first time on vinyl, after its original appearance as a CD only track on the 1995 Stasis album Inspiration. Travellor and From Afar again also appear for the first time on wax - they were previously only available on Phenomyna's 1994 CD Unexplained on ART.
