VA - Infrastructure Facticity
Function and Inland's Infrastructure New York imprint had gone into 9-year hiatus in 2005. But it didn't need a lot of time to regain attention, because, as we all know, legends die hard in minds of people who have witnessed their inception. 12th number in label's catalog marked its return in 2014; few years and some dozen releases after, Infrastructure is more alive than it's ever been.
Facticity is a perfect example of when one should throw around such terms us "teamwork" and "coordinated effort". Here you have your Steve Bicknell, your Cassegrain, your Tin Man, a stellar contribution from Function & Inland themselves, as well as exciting featured newcomers to the label, namely Rrose, Cleric and Ian Dominick Fernow, disguised as grim tripper Vatican Shadow. Fundamentally different approaches to sound shaping, tempos ranging from 98 to 135 BPM (or from 0, if you put last ambient track into account), over two hours, 132 minutes and 22 seconds to be precise, of ingenious, true-to-art production by some of the finest players in the techno game. Be sure to give it a spin.
