From Here We Go Sublime

From Here We Go…, the debut album by Swedish producer Axel Wilner, focuses on the epic qualities of Ride and MBV, combined with Wilner’s cosmic pop chops and his predilection for shuffly techno grooves.

2007 could see an indie-techno fusion turn electronic music upside down. Gui Boratto’s ‘Chromophobia’ integrates folky guitars and breathy vocals with soaring techno, while Pantha Du Prince’s ‘This Bliss’ made the connection between minimal and shoegazing indie. From Here We Go…, the debut album by Swedish producer Axel Wilner, also looks to ’80s indie. It focuses on the epic qualities of Ride and MBV, combined with Wilner’s cosmic pop chops and his predilection for shuffly techno grooves. ‘Over The Ice’ is a good example of The Field’s three-way experiment, with a blissed out avalanche of electronic sounds cascading over a shiny groove, while the beautifully sad ‘The Little Heart Beats So Fast’ is the centrepiece of in Wilner’s field of dreams.

From here we go sublime EP

Once you hear this taster EP, there’s no excuse to miss out on The Field’s album. ‘The Little Heart Beats So Fast’ is based on an acidic backing and heartbreaking melodies and ‘The Deal’ combines the shoegazers’ ocean of sound guitar melancholia with a swirling, spacey groove.

Remixes

Robert Babicz’s ‘Mr Decay’ remix is sprightly but dull, so flip to The Field’s immense ‘Hera’ rework for best results. It follows his usual cut-up/layered futurist formula, but this does what most of his recent album did not: achieves that all-too-rare trance-like beauty through depth, space and echo-chamber emotion.
