Have you ever arrived at a destination and not known how you got there?
'Mescalinum United - We Have Arrived' achieves just that in 2017
This digital release by the mover a.k.a. Marc Acardipane is one of few masterpieces in electronic music and contains the blueprints for what was to become the heavier, Hardcore end of the Techno spectrum.
This timeless record sounded like the Future in 1990 and still manages to echo the feeling of the far-Future in 2017. The discordant and thick metallic waves pulse with darkened hues of troubled atmospheres to capture and illustrate the power of what Techno could offer the world. A full distortion first approach was uncompromising and its impact was huge.
Almost unbelievably it was written in 1990 and when viewed in context of this time it stands loud, proud and utterly unique in comparison to the sound of the post acid-house era. Frankfurt's enduring gift to the Techno scene is Marc Acardipane's label, Planet Core Productions (PCP) from which this 12" is taken and represents the very beginning of the journey. This journey begins again to new destinations in 2017 with Planet Phuture, Marc's new label.
It is important to understand the powerful global influence 'We Have Arrived' had and continues to have, inspiring producers, labels and spawning an entire sub-genre within Techno called Hardcore. This records impact extended as far as New York, Holland, Belgium, France and the UK all from the shockwave with Frankfurt at the epicentre. The original release was followed by licenses to Industrial Strength and R&S with remixes by Aphex Twin.
The Mover, the architect of the Hardcore Techno sound set out his extraordinary vision and production skills with 'We Have Arrived '. A re-mastered masterpiece, that should be in every Techno fan's collection.
