"Turn ice Realities Into Fire Dreams"
With pleasure and pride, HANDS release this four-track vinyl EP by the much talked-about Berlin-based DJ and producer Michael Wollenhaupt aka Ancient Methods a rare pleasure for sure. Adding to the trademark metallic samples, sturdy beats and keen riffs a good share of experimental attitude, this further pushes the Ancient Methods sound and yields 25 absorbing, sometimes psychic minutes. The limited Edition of 200 copies includes a handnumbered art print on heavy carton and is exclusively available at HANDS.
Turn Ice Realities Into Fire Dreams starts with a bid for the dance floor - the heavy, repetitive industrial groove of Guided by the Force of Compassion, followed by the less casual Protection had to be Given, also decidedly physical in its use of a deep and daring bass line.
This is all I Could do then makes leeway into more solitary waters, a sublime combination of slow, stumbling beats, eerie vocal samples and a woeful melody creeping in. My Ice Baby is a new, even colder version of the provoking contribution to the Forms Of Hands 15 compilation, grinding off beats, a whirr and a buzz and a glorious vocal delivery.
Michael Wollenhaupt has released only about one EP a year since 2007 and built a devoted following from that, and Turn Ice Realities Into Fire Dreams again shows why perfectly crafted, timeless, defying trends and expectations, this is a fascinating and unique musical universe.
