Phase – Binary Opposition Reprocessed
Phase aka Ashley Burchett made his name in the early noughties by releasing a string of underground classics on Steve Bicknell's legendary Cosmic imprint and 65d Mavericks' Surface (and sister label Inceptive). When Belgium's Token Records emerged in early 2007, he (next to fellow Londoner Inigo Kennedy) quickly became the core of the label, responsible for the majority of the output.
Burchett's detailed drum programming results in punchy, in-your-face, yet very subtle rhythms. Combined with a keen sense of atmospherics & sound processing, his tracks gained early support by the likes of Robert Hood, Derrick May & Jeff Mills; 3 names whose influence is also clearly present in Phase's music.
Beginning of 2012 Phase caused quite a storm in techno's landscape with the release of 'Binary Opposition'. Both versions, "Process 1 & 2", fierce pieces of relentless yet deep techno, got on heavy rotation by Blawan, Ben Klock, Surgeon, Marcel Dettmann, Dave Clarke, to name a few.
A few months later, we present 'Binary Opposition Reprocessed'. Assembling a remix package for this project wasn't a difficult task, as all remixers were noted fans of the original tracks and supporters of Phase as an artist. On duties are Luke Slater aka Planetary Assault Systems, Ben Klock, Sigha, Peter Van Hoesen and Token residents Inigo Kennedy and Ctrls.
Phase's 'Binary Opposition Reprocessed' will be released digitally and on 3 separate twelve inches during June.
