Talk about Richard H Kirk - Virtual State

Kirk was the first major figure to join the young #IDM-winning movement under the wing of the #Warp label. He was already known all over the world, as part of the Cabaret Voltaire group, as one of the founders industral, but as soon as something interesting began to emerge in his native Sheffield, he plunged into new experiments. Forming the acid-house project Sweet Exorcist, he published one of the first releases of Warp Records. After a while, all the hang-up of the label was carried away by #ambient_techno, and concentrated on long-running publications, which was not typical for techno music. And, following his colleagues, Richard decides to release his solo album, which later became a classic of electronic music.
IMO Kirk's strongest work. Virtual State somehow unifies the aesthetics of his work with the CV and his solo outfits like Sandoz. As such the moods and sounds on the album are much more dynamic than usual for him - among his stock and trade paranoid/hypnotic moments (e.g. November X Ray, Velodrome) are even occasional stretches of tenderness (e.g. The Feeling, Lagoon West). Come is the standout track for me.
Of most Kirk's albums, and appearently there are plenty to choose from by now, 'Virtual State' is one his most defined pieces of work - very pleasant, calm and hypnotic. Something he always captures the ear with on his Cabaret Voltaire aftermaths, although in some cases things end up closer to exaggeration regarding the length of Kirk's pieces, spotted in endless cca 9-minute rounds of 'Alphaphone Vol. 1 - Step Write Run' to name a few... 'Virtual State' might be just the case as music responds between 5-9 minutes each track, but in here there is this beautiful continuous sequence marking each track can't do without the other, so the final effect makes it a perfect whole. Ideal for traveling.
