Riding the Detroit Escalator: Soundtrack [313] gets 25th anniversary audiophile reissue

Ambient techno classic Soundtrack [313], the debut album from The Detroit Escalator Company, AKA Neil Ollivierra, has been reissued.

25 years following its original 1996 release, the record has been remastered using the half-speed mastering process, a slowed-down cutting process that improves the lathe’s ability to properly cut high-frequency material. Available now on Swiss label Musique Pour La Danse, the record’s digital and limited-edition vinyl release come with four bonus tracks, while the limited-edition CD arrives with six additional tracks.

Ollivierra is a Detroit-born producer who came out of the city’s early dance music scene. Soundtrack [313] had languished in relative obscurity, praised by Tim Barr’s Rough Guide to Techno as “one of techno’s most overlooked classics…a note-perfect vision of late night Detroit and a compelling combination of warm beauty and desolate force.”
