Album Review

Techno fans may not have realized that Steve Pickton deserved a collected-works volume, but Past Movements states the case brilliantly. The set comprises two discs, one of rare tracks and one of unreleased tracks (though the scarcity of Pickton's greatest releases, many vinyl-only, makes the first disc basically a best-of collection). Grabbing productions from his three main aliases — Stasis, Phenomyna, and Paul W. Teebrooke — Past Movements displays the moody man of British techno in all his glory, from his 1993 B12 debut "Point of No Return" to the best tracks from his Phenomyna CD Unexplained on ART. Pickton's methods are easy to recognize after listening to just a few tracks, but his keen ear for making machines emote marked him early on as one of the masters of early British techno before IDM or ambient techno. Thanks be to Peacefrog for continuing to be a prime source for techno of the past and present.

Pickton debuted in the early '90s on the tiny Time Is Right label before releasing an EP for B12 Records as Stasis....
