Features exclusive new digital only content! The first studio album from Stephen Hitchell since he paired up with Rod Modell as Echospace on the critically-acclaimed "The Coldest Season" project in 2007. Echospace's debut album earned "Album of the year" in over 30 publications, including The Wire's top spot for Best Electronica album in 2007 and scoring a coveted 5/5 in Resident Advisor, this album continues in a very similar spirit. The Intrusion project explores more of a traditional roots vibe and its own unique take on the dub sound, yet still manages to fill space with a deep and drifting ambience as the Echospace project had in the past. This album features additional organ and vocal performances from Paul St. Hilaire (False Tuned, Rhythm & Sound, Burial Mix) formerly known as Tikiman on "Little Angel," a song both personal and inviting. Showcasing his beautiful voice in a somewhat new direction, mixing both his love of '60s-era R&B and soul in a lovers rock-style, this is a truly heart-warming piece. "Montego Bay" brings you right onboard the coast and the island sound, packed with low-end punch, shuffle riddims and a rockers vibe which lovers of King Tubby or Lee Perry should find appealing. "Angel Version" is a deep lo-fi dub session filled with congas, bongos and African percussion rhythms, a soulful, heart-touching melody coupled with the angelic vocals of Paul St. Hilaire and an atmosphere with aquatic depth you could almost swim in. "Tswana Dub" and "Intrusion Dub" are filled with the most energy on the album with their stripped-down riddims, Augustus Pablo-style melodicas and low-end guaranteed to rattle the dust off your floorboards. The beats let up and drop down into the ghostly harmonics of "Seduction," an epic beauty as deep as the sea, a sort of seduction of sound filled with the darkest moments inside the echo chamber. "Reflection" is certainly in debt to the Maurizio releases, with its lower-than-low bottom end and ominous synth melodies so immersive, you could get lost in their three dimensions. The song soars along and in minutes, reveals its magical analog frequencies with shards of metallic scrapes and blissful chords as they begin sailing around your headphones in full-spectrum panorama. "Distant Twilight" ventures off into ambient territory that could be the soundtrack to floating in deep space. "A Night To Remember" is a kind of spiritual journey, and one where sounds seem to emerge from nowhere and a tribal choir of some extinct African village lend a hand in playing their mesmerizing rhythms. As the rhythms develop far off in the distance, a hypnotizing chord arpeggiates around your body and a pad sings like an urban hymn. This is music which clearly focuses on every fine detail, filled with loads of roots, space, unbelievable low-end and a sonic warmth you've come to love from Echospace's true analog signature.
