The Return of a Masterpiece, 30th Anniversary Remastered Edition
Roach’s travels in the Australian outback, along with studies of the Aboriginal Dreamtime, are the lifeblood for this recording which even today sounds like a transmission from the near future & the very distant past.
Stephen Hill, Hearts of Space Radio: “Musically Dreamtime Return richly deserves its classic status, but Roach also deserves credit for leading electronic musicians out of their sheltered studios and into an active relationship with the landscape, the wider world, and deep cultural history. The whole genre is stronger and more relevant for his example.”
Three decades after its release, the true expansive depth of this iconic masterpiece has been meticulously unveiled, revealing an entirely new listening experience. This remastered edition, restores the original sonic nature and visionary intention, taking the listener deeper into the dreamtime.
Gianluigi Gasparetti, Deep Listenings, 2005: “Surrounding every masterpiece there is an arcane and indecipherable energy, a divine breath that blows. Works like Dreamtime Return change the course of history and accomplish a prodigious jump forward. It is a recording that contains astounding artistic intuitions, the starting point for all of the esoteric and tribal music produced today. Roach was the first techno-shaman. The record can be considered a soundtrack for an adventure at the edge of time.”
