Vainqueur - Elevation

The 7th 12" on Chain Reaction, from 1996 and follow-up to this release.

This is a bit weird - there's no drums on this at all, yet it manages to have a very clear sense of rhythm. There's what sounds like it might be the treated hiss of a hi-hat but I'm not sure. Lots of "loud, swirling synthetic drones" according to someone on Discogs.

It's all a bit trippy and takes you away to a different place for half an hour or so, if you do both sides in the one go. Recommended headphone listening...
