The End Of Fiction EP
Delsin marks its milestone 150th release in a rainstorm of gorgeous arps with a full EP from Voiski. For Luc Kheradmand it’s a return to the label which carried his 2020 collaboration with Wata Igarashi and where he issued early single Breaths Written Outside Gloom. For Delsin it’s the perfect way to sum up different dimensions of the label’s identity – richly melodic, machine-powered and yet distinct from any illusion of a typical ‘Delsin sound’. The End Of Fiction EP marks a new chapter in Kheradmand’s approach and intention.
His prolific back catalogue reaches back across countless releases for labels like L.I.E.S., Dekmantel UFO, Bassiani and his own Super 95. Here his established overdriven snarl is tempered, but not at the expense of the energy and emotion readily associated with his music. There’s a trace of trance and early Detroit about the powerful lead lines on ‘Blazing Star’ and ‘Hazy Suns’, while ‘Unreality’ basks in blissful acid and ‘Ideodelika’ charts a course through progressive, psychedelic techno. The End Of Fiction still bristles with the peak time energy Voiski is often known for, but it’s the melodies which dominate the overall narrative as he sets out a renewed clarity in his sound.
