This almost reminds me of Autechre’s old EPs. EPs, which just like that are as long as an actual album and which create the most magnificent imagery worlds. Especially, since The Pathway To Tiraquon 6 is to be seen as no more than a teaser for the new Space Dimension Controller album that will be released in 2012. So much for ‘teaser’ – Jack Hamills work is nothing less than a feature-length Science Fiction film of 11 chapters, including pre-commercials and credits. Jack Hamill spins his SF-saga around an aliens’ invasion on earth and the desperate attempt by a few humans to escape into the depths of space. Luckily, this is much less ‘Transformer’ and instead much more ‘Captain Future’. Incredibly analog sounds between ambient, trance and a proper techno-beating. The wooden bassdrums are rumbling like on Aphex Twin’s Classics, spacy surfaces are buzzing around like they’re celebrating ambient’s wedding with Future Sound of London and Human Beings, acid-escapades and electro-funk are fidgeting like they’re with The Tuss and the Jedi Knights. With The Path To Tiraquon 6, Jack Hamill presents an album – errr, album-teaser – that easily re-animates the 1990s and puts them into a new, futuristic dress. Fantastic.
