ALTONE | Forest Land (Greyscale)
Greyscale unveils its latest long player masterpiece! Mood Series regular Altone, has had four EP’s credited to himself on the label in the past year alone. Forest Land is his first full length and it’s a deep journey with ten tracks of some of the strongest and most high-quality dub techno in the business.
Hunt and Ethereal Night are not for the faint of heart. These are some of the headiest and immersive tracks we have heard yet at the label. Then there is Oak and Pinecone which hone in on and harken to a lost age of traditional dub from the mother land. Enjoy being transported with Flying Leaves and Downpour as they give off impressions of scenic landscapes from distant memories. Altone then adds a good dancefloor number for those house lovers in the addictive groover Cold Ground. Pebble is reminiscent of some of the best of Intrusion with its gentle waves of chords that surround you like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s night. Lastly, Morning Dew is a standout crescendo bringing the album to a triumphant closing is pure class. Forest Land is guaranteed to have something for everyone and to also impress the most hardened dub techno critics as well. Altone is proving he is a name to keep an eye on!
