    Voyage 34

    Remastered By Steven Wilson

    The album originates from a single track, titled Voyage 34, which was to be part of the Porcupine Tree's second studio album, Up the Downstair. Originally a 30-minute track intended to be the second disc of a double album, Wilson eventually decided to release Voyage 34 independently of the rest of the album.

    Instead, it was released in two parts, as singles, as Voyage 34 (Phase 1) and Voyage 34 (Phase 2) in 1992. In 1993, Voyage 34: Remixes was released, containing two remixes of the originals. Voyage 34 (Phase 3) was a remix by the British electronic music group Astralasia, while Voyage 34 (Phase 4) was a remix by Wilson himself, along with future band member Richard Barbieri. A voice sample of Dead Can Dance's song As the Bell Rings the Maypole Spins is repeated throughout all four tracks.

    Insides

    Like many others, Ghostly became enamored with Fort Romeau's idea of slow
    listening, the concept of enriching relationships with music through careful
    attention and focus. His understated take on deep, groove-friendly house started
    pushing this practice three years ago, when the producer's debut LP, Kingdoms,
    appeared via 100% Silk. The native Londoner, born Mike Greene, has evolved
    considerably since then, finessing his sound over the course of three breezy 12s,
    one EP, and lengthy DJ sets at some of the best clubs in Europe-not the least of
    which were Berlin's famed Panorama Bar, London hotspot Plastic People, and
    Robert Johnson in Frankfurt. Those years Greene spent immersed in his craft and
    new inspirations have generously informed the eight stunning productions which
    comprise Insides, Fort Romeau's long-awaited sophomore album.


    Playing in those clubs definitely had an affect on how I approach composition and
    pacing, Greene shares. I want to allow things to breathe and develop gradually
    over longer track lengths, rather than cram everything into four or five minutes. His
    patient methods are a central component to the billowy house music on Insides,
    though this isn't an indulgent album of gratuitous buildups and tiresome
    breakdowns. Each production is pointed and purposeful, as the artist crafts every
    second of analog electronics with rich detail, nuance, and refinement.


    Throughout Insides, Fort Romeau guides us down misty corridors lined with supple
    synth pads, quietly thumping kicks, and elastic low-end sequences reinforced by an
    emotive confidence. Thick dancefloor cuts like All I Want and Folle are built on
    such satisfying elements-sounds so full-bodied, you'd swear they're knocking
    against your bones. This, too, is by design. I wanted to make sure all the songs
    have a tangible quality, says Greene of his LP's physicality, to make texture and
    grain become as important a part of the vocabulary as timbre and pitch. This was
    accomplished with an arsenal of machines, including his Moog Voyager, Yamaha
    DX7, Roland Juno-6, and Korg 770, a vintage synth he describes as having so much
    presence and vitality, it almost feels like it's alive. Equally important to the weighty
    presence of his music is meticulous post-production. The record was mixed on an
    analog desk and mastered to tape, Fort Romeau elaborates. These processes are
    as much a part of the sound as the synths and sample sources themselves.


    There is also a deep stylistic eclecticism to Insides, and coming from Greene, this
    was galvanized by deep cuts he discovered while digging to find music for his
    extensive DJ sets. Old kosmiche, disco, and early electronic records are among the
    strongest influences, and Fort Romeau used them as an impetus for creation. It's
    those strange and wonderful tracks that you find on the b-side of an old record that
    sparked my desire to make something new, he shares, but it's very important for
    me never to feel like I'm making a pastiche. Indeed, the sleek expanse of Lately
    and the title track's jacking grooves take cues from buoyantly cosmic dance music.
    And yet it's the personality of a young artist coming into his own that makes Insides
    such a graceful collection of house music, one that only further enriches the soul
    over time.
