Since his emergence on the scene in 2012, Secluded has quickly established himself an impressive figure, with a steady string of quality releases across labels such as Soma, Enemy, EarToGround & Sleaze Records.
Created as a pseudonym by seasoned Glaswegian producer Stephen Gorrie (aka Hans Bouffmyhre) to explore a deeper and more emotional style of techno, Secluded’s productions are distinguished by an attention to harmony and ambiance, whilst tethered to the driving, big room sound of his alter ego.
Distant Memories is the debut album from Secluded. The LP represents a culmination of Secluded’s work to date, during which the project’s sound has grown and developed. It’s a presentation of the Secluded sound as a whole, where grainy ambiance is punctured by resonant stabs and brutal drums, and where atmospheric tracks like ‘Deserted’ and ‘Ethereal’ are balanced deftly against archetypal Secluded peak timers such as ‘Feeling’ and ‘Distant’. Expect high tension, distorted rawness via a body of work which has been three years in the making.
Distant Memories will be released digitally on October 12th and marks the birth of a new, dedicated Secluded imprint. A remix EP will follow on vinyl in December featuring mixes from Jonas Kopp, Reeko and Hans Bouffmyhre.
