The Advent - Planting Seeds [printed sleeve]
Perc Trax - TPT090
From the mid 90's until the present day The Advent (Cisco Ferreira) has been a constant inspiration and influence on Perc & Perc Trax, from early albums such as Elements of Life and it's all-star remix album Shaded Elementz to a seminal collection of remixes for New Order and a recent resurgence with releases on Klockworks, Cultivated Electronics and Cisco's own Kombination Research imprint.
Now The Advent debuts on Perc Trax with three tracks of classic mid-90's UK machine funk. 4/4 kicks overlaid with rushing rhythm patterns and filtered vocal hooks. From the deep grooves of Scorched and the drum machine workout of Night Shade through to the jabbing groove of Planting Seeds this release is both a trip back into one of the many golden ages of UK techno and also a way for Perc Trax to pay homage to one of it's heroes.
