Riconoscimenti 4F de Télérama
Salutato unanimemente come il nuovo profeta della techno inglese alla pubblicazione del suo primo album Drone Logic nel 2013, Daniel Avery è diventato uno dei nomi di riferimento nel circuito della dance music europea, presenziando regolarmente nei migliori club e festival del continente, in particolare al Fabric, famosa discoteca londinese di cui è diventato una delle colonne portanti. Dopo quattro anni spesi a godere della sua fama andando di tournée in tournée, l’inglese si è finalmente deciso a fermarsi un attimo per registrare un nuovo formato lungo, in uno studio in riva al Tamigi. “Con Drone Logic la mia vita è cambiata. Ho iniziato a fare concerti ovunque e in continuazione. Il che è fantastico perché adoro mixare, ma è diventato sempre più difficile trovare tempo per la produzione”. Quando si dice il rovescio della medaglia… A differenza delle produzioni dance della sua prima release, Song for Alpha, mixato dal suo mentore Erol Alkan (il boss di Phantasy Sound incontrato alle famose serate Trash), si apre su una traccia ambient, First Light, per poi intraprendere un trip ipnotico e onirico con Stereo L. I kick di Projection e Sensation ci trasportano nel buio di una discoteca della Detroit anni ’90, ma subito rimettiamo la testa sott’acqua con i deliri alla Brian Eno di Citizen//Nowhere, Days from Now, Embers, o ancora Quick Eternity, che chiude questo viaggio con grande raffinatezza, facendolo assomigliare quasi alla colonna sonora di un film. Un’ambizione che d’altronde il nostro rivendica: questo Song for Alpha sembra infatti il biglietto da visita ideale da consegnare a un regista. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Daniel Avery's Together in Static consists of material he composed for a pair of seated, socially distanced concerts at the Hackney Church in London. Continuing a prolific streak for the artist, it arrives the year following a collaboration with Alessandro Cortini (Illusion of Time) and the surprise-released solo effort Love + Light. Even more so than his other albums, this is decidedly a reflective set designed for home listening, with much of the material in ambient or downtempo mode. A thumping industrial techno track called "Yesterday Faded" appears early in the program, and its tough, craggy beats are surrounded by soft, atmospheric synths like a layer of mist partially obscuring a massive iceberg. "Nowhere Sound" is much closer to the Casino Versus Japan/Ulrich Schnauss school of downtempo IDM, with slightly tangy synths shining over slo-mo beats. "Fountain of Peace" seems like an exaggeration of trip-hop, with an absurdly blown-out, hissy drum loop and synths that seem to be reaching deep inside one's soul; the effect is both soothing and bludgeoning. Recalling early-'90s ambient techno at its most melancholy, "A Life That Is Your Own" also has a mystical vibe, but isn't sludgy. "Hazel and Gold" is much sunnier, sounding like an attempt to leave fear and tragedy in the past and look on the bright side. The only other uptempo track on the album, "Endless Hours," has more focused, energetic beats than "Yesterday Faded," and overall it seems more determined and motivated. The gorgeous closer "The Midnight Sun" is a straight-up flashback to the Artificial Intelligence era, and without getting bombastic, its optimism seems to outshine the lingering darkness of the rest of the record. Considering how quickly the album came together, it feels like a spontaneous rush to translate the emotions of being away from dance clubs for a year into music, with hope and anticipation winning in the end. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

Directly following an ambient collaboration with modular synth master Alessandro Cortini (Illusion of Time) and a club 12" with Roman Flügel as Noun (Meeting of the Minds), Daniel Avery finished a solo LP and spontaneously decided to release it with no advance hype. Love + Light touches on several sides of Avery's personality, delivering propulsive dance tracks as well as reflective experiments, and diverting into other modes that he hasn't explored as frequently. "Dusting for Smoke" and "Dream Distortion" are prime examples of the type of hissing, hazy techno he excels at, with heavy, pounding beats and tense, dreamy synth textures, all fine-tuned for major club impact. "Darlinnn" keeps up a steady beat but builds much more gradually, working up to a frothy peak and then simmering down. Surrounding all these tracks are experimental pieces like the distorted drone of "London Island" (echoing his work with Cortini) and the gentle, floating harp interlude "Katana." "Searing Light, Forward Motion" takes things in a much harsher direction, with clattering, distorted breakbeats reminiscent of Christoph de Babalon or DJ Scud, and furious acid synths sounding like an angry robot on the rampage. "Infinite Future" is much more serene, with shoegazey synths gliding over a slightly jittery post-dubstep beat, and other tracks like "Into the Arms of Stillness" and "A Story in E5" dip into swirling, tenderhearted downtempo IDM in the vein of Casino Versus Japan or Freescha. "Fuzzwar" is in a similar vein, yet somehow it's one of the least fuzzy-sounding tracks on the album. Wrapping it all up is "One More Morning," a light, shimmering electro piece perfect for greeting the sunrise. While Love + Light feels a lot rougher than Avery's first two solo albums, and initially takes a few more listens to fully appreciate, it's just as inspired and creative. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

Illusion of Time is the result of several years' worth of collaboration between techno producer/DJ Daniel Avery and analog synth master Alessandro Cortini (a member of Nine Inch Nails). The two developed ideas remotely, previewing the fruits of their labor with a limited single available at a festival in 2017, then convened in a hotel room while Avery was touring with NIN in 2018, completing the album in a matter of hours. The release is far removed from Avery's hazy, acid-bath techno, but minus the propulsive beats, his frayed, shoegaze-like textures are unmistakable, and mesh well with Cortini's isolated electronics. The album veers between haunting, slightly apocalyptic moodscapes and more reflective moments that are almost soothing, yet there's still an unshakeable sense of melancholy throughout. Illusion of Time's title track is certainly one of its more refreshing pieces, with a gorgeous, Cluster-like keyboard melody drenched in trippy delay, but instead of making it sound clear and cloudless, they cover it in a wash of hiss and distortion. "At First Sight" similarly buries a lonesome yet irrepressible melody in thick fog, like a battered heart that refuses to break down completely. A steady, gentle analog synth pulse frames the lapping waves of feedback during "Enter Exit," and while the track generally feels a bit chaotic but hopeful, "Inside the Ruins" has a similar push/pull effect yet sounds much more desolate and closer to the brink of destruction. Close to the end of the album is "Water," an astonishingly pretty piece of shimmering drone-gaze that originally appeared as the A-side of the duo's 2017 single. (The much darker B-side, "Sun," is sequenced as the full-length's foreboding intro.) Illusion of Time fittingly sounds rougher and more spontaneous than any of Avery's work or Cortini's preceding recordings, particularly his 2019 Mute release Volume Massimo, but its highlights seem to pull divine inspiration out of practically nothing. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

Elettronica - Uscito il 19 novembre 2012 | Fabric Worldwide

The Daniel Avery timeline has little space between "dance music epiphany" and "first commercial mix." The DJ/producer surfaced with a Little Boots remix in 2009 and crammed a decade's worth of activity into 2010-2012. In 2011, while he was operating as Stopmakingme, Avery gained an evangelist in Andrew Weatherall, who proclaimed that his own club sets were filled with the youngster's productions. In 2012, Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound label released several Avery productions, some of which appear on Fabriclive 66. One of the most up-to-date mixes in either Fabric series, all but five of its 23 tracks date from 2012. The dizzy Prins Thomas mix of Telephones' "Kanal" and Compuphonic's sweet closer "Sequoia," both of which were released at the end of 2010, are the oldest inclusions. Through and through, this a club set, condensed into 76 slamming and smacking minutes, and it glowingly reflects Avery's approach: blur the lines between techno, house, and electro, and keep it immediate and weird. Tracks from the jacking Nautiluss and the rattling Sneaker (whose handclaps are distorted into firecracker-like FX) surround Avery's slippery, burbling "Naïve Reception," an industrial descendent of Yaz's "Situation." Around the half-hour mark, the Magnets' "Game Theory" fades into near silence and gives way to a repeated announcement ("Noise flies high"), and then the mix kicks into high gear with "Water Jump," one of Avery's meatiest tracks. Avery then stitches a diverse high-energy succession of tracks from veterans -- including Raudive, Miss Kittin, and Kassem Mosse -- as well as relative newcomers. Weatherall himself appears with Timothy J. Fairplay as the Asphodells, whose wobbly "Dry Heat" is the penultimate track. © Andy Kellman /TiVo
