Ancient Light

Solar One
Fads and fashions come and go, but not much changes in Gerard Hanson’s world. The Texan producer has been making timeless deep techno and electro as Convextion and E.R.P., and as ‘Ancient Light’ demonstrates, he remains a master of the esoteric form. Dreamy synths, atmospheric melodies and that intangible, otherworldly feeling that many strive for but few realise are all audible on the title track and ‘Gleaning Creation’. There is a sharper edge to 'Eagle Nebula' and label-owner The Exaltics pushes ‘Ancient Light’ down an EBM-fuelled wormhole, but it’s only a brief diversion for one of electro’s great pioneers.
