ENDPHASE - ">I< " (tut030)
15 years after its initial ultra-limited CDR release, ENDPHASE’s first and only album finally goes analogue! >I< was composed and recorded between 1996 and 2001 by Marc Patrick Schaffer, later to become the founder of ANNA LOGUE RECORDS and one half of SOLITUDE FX, using an array of synthesizers such as the Kawai K1, Korg Poly-61 and Yamaha PSR-6300. Presented here in its extended 2001 version, it gathers no less than 20 glorious neo-romantic tracks, between dreamy instrumentals and catchy electro songs, featuring guest vocals by Carmel Smith and Orpheo Weidelt-Baur (SFX). Infused with the longing and despair of the late 90s, ENDPHASE remains a true milestone of the German minimal wave revival, an intimate and introspective testimony to the beginning of an era.
