Dark Entries is pleased to present a 4-track EP from Austin, Texas analogue hardware enthusiast Bill Converse. Immersed in the early days of the 90s midwest rave scene, Bill began DJing at a young age in Lansing, Michigan. Luminaries such as Claude Young, Traxx, and Derrick May were key early influences. Techno, noise, ambient and tape processing are all part of his uncanny sound palette. His debut album Meditations/Industry was released on cassette in 2013 and edited for a vinyl release on Dark Entries in 2016 followed by two 12” singles Warehouse Invocation and 7 of 9 the same year. In 2017 Converse released his second album The Shape Of Things To Come followed by the double EP Salt Of Mars. Hulled is a 25-minute journey spread across 4 tracks of glacial abandon. All tracks were recorded directly to tape with no overdubs, made at Converse's home studio. Bill says these tracks represent “ocean waves in stormy conditions, dark grey blue water, or more generally speaking something ominous and beautiful.” The songs on this album reveal a sublime influence from Detroit techno, IDM, and Acid. Built around vintage synthesizer lines and gritty drum machine percussion, the tracks ebb and flow like the effect of sun shimmering on water, woozy, gauzy and ephemeral. All songs were mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each EP is housed in a die-cute jacket designed by ELOISE LEIGH with peachy pink patterns landing on an alien water planet and seeing mysterious playing forms under the turquoise water. and the. Each copy includes a postcard featuring photo of Bill with notes.

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Texas Recordings Underground made its mark this spring with the well-received Techno/Electro “Cyber Tex EP” that featured electro wizard Cygnus and E.R.P. aka Gerard Hanson. Not to rest on his laurels, TX Connect’s Gavin Guthrie is following that up with the 2nd release on the label by Austin’s man-of-the-moment Bill Converse themes. Bill has been known to local Austinites for years as one of Texas’ best DJs and recently released a mix for Resident Advisor highlighting those skills. But it’s now his productions that are really starting to show his talents. Iconic label Dark Entries has thought enough of his work to release the seminal double album “Meditations/Industry” as well as the follow-up 12inch “Warehouse Invocation”. His debut on T.R.U. contains 2 deep excursions with “7 of 9” and “Ahead”, both Tech House masterworks that mix elements of Chicago and Detroit with a Texas flair that keeps it definitively Bill Converse. Ahead in particular brings Ron Trent’s Altered States to mind as well as some of Boo Williams’ premier work with its synths swirling around the metallic 909 percussion

Immersed in the early days of the '90s midwest rave scene, BILL CONVERSE began DJing at a young age in Lansing, Michigan. Luminaries such as Claude Young, Traxx, and Twonz were key early influences. Since moving to Texas in 1998, he has experimented with analog techniques in varied studio bunkers. Early techno, noise, ambient, tape, and paranormal processing are all part of his uncanny sound palette. “Warehouse Invocation” is Converse’s debut 12” release, collecting material from a cassette release on Obsolete Future plus a new unreleased song. Three of the tracks, “Warehouse Invocation," “Senys Magick” and “Consulted Acid,” were recorded in Austin TX between 2012-2013 at home and direct to tape with no overdubs or multi-tracking. “Riverbank” was also recorded at home in early 2014 in one take with a mic placed outside of the window to record the the sounds of the river late at night. Bill is informed by his surroundings, influenced by scenes of desolation in nature, the sea, the desert, and places of industry, like power stations, old factories, and warehouses. The songs on this EP length reveal a sublime influence from Detroit techno, early Chicago house, and Acid.
