Spatial is rebooting his Infrasonics label with a series of three 12"s titled Emergence. The first 12" evolves his distinctive sound, further blurring techno and the hardcore continuum. Early DJ support has come from Lee Gamble, Ben UFO, Hodge and Beneath. A-side title "HeLa" refers to an 'immortal' type of cell used in biomedical research, containing a mutation allowing unlimited division and growth. Meanwhile, a URL on the centre label leads to a generative digital artwork inspired by mathematician John Conway's Game Of Life. This simulation of cellular reproduction illustrates the process of emergence, by which complex patterns arise from interactions between simple entities. Spatial's previous appearance on Infrasonics was 2011's Infra001-4, a CD compilation that underlined his first four EPs as an original, cohesive body of work. Since 2012 the label has been in hiatus, while Spatial has had releases on Ultramajic, Well Rounded, West Norwood Cassette Library, Broken20 and Niche 'n' Bump among others. His return to Infrasonics is the culmination of two strands of work. The original Infrasonics material hints at practices of intense restriction and simplification. Its subtle dynamics won't necessarily be appreciated in peak-time club play. Spatial's work for other labels on the other hand is relatively unfettered, tougher and more impulsive. This 12" is the best of both worlds: microscopic in detail yet rough and ready, conceptually driven with no nonsense.It's pressed on heavyweight 180g white vinyl and housed in a printed transparent sleeve. Emergence parts two and three are forthcoming later this year.
