Album and Compilations

Slam bring out their Reverse Proceed - Out Now on Soma!

After tireless months in the studio, the Glaswegian duo are ready to unleash what is easily their best body of work to date. Not only does this album capture where the two are at musically at the moment but is an extension of their unending fascination with all things Electronic. Lending their 22 years of experience to this new project, Slam have delved into the past for inspiration whilst simultaneously heralding future technologies in the production process. Conceptually, Slam wanted to have the human experience in mind when recording and to base the architecture of the album around ‘the sequence’. This led them to a locally built hardware sequencer called the ‘Sequentix Cirklon’ that became the heart of the album. Allowing them to access older machines and also a modern modular synth setup simultaneously, Stuart & Orde merged live manipulation and recording techniques to full potential to bring a soul to the album. Reverse Proceed is more than an album; it is a well-defined experience built on the principle of the sequence. Having been meticulously woven together to create a seamless listening environment, Reverse Proceed aims to capture the audience and guide them through the sonic landscape of the album. This method allowed Slam to fully explore the concept of the album being more than just a collection of tracks but rather a thoroughly immersible piece. Modern Techno albums come and go but with a clear vision of what they wanted to bring to the table, the dynamic duo of Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle have once again raised the bar for the world of techno. Len Faki: "Great to listen to how Slam combine soulful ambiance tracks together with selected and powerful club anthems into one album!" Function: "Wow! Sounds incredible!!! Beautiful album." Flug: "It's an excellent album, man, I really like the vibe inside of all tracks." Jonas Kopp: "The album is fantastic for me, I found it really eclectic, which is perfect for an album." Fabrice Lig: "Great album. Powerful and beautiful!" Brendan Moeller: "Lots of great textures, atmospheres and grooves." Mixmag (Techno album of the month): “On Reverse Proceed, the duo’s years of experience emanate from every pore. Across 14 tracks, Stuart and Orde prove they are still at the top of their game with an album that’s beautiful, sublime, dark, powerful and relevant all at once.” Ibiza Voice: "A techno album that you’ll want to sit down and listen to in one sitting has always been a rare thing, but this is exactly that. For an act who are known for producing solid techno LPs, it’s no small praise to suggest that this might be their best one yet."
