Shinichi Atobe (Chain Reaction)

Mysterious techno operative makes shock return with debut album Butterfly Effect.

Demdike Stare have released the debut album from Shinichi Atobe on their DDS label.

Atobe only has one previous record to his name: Ship-Scope, a dubby and emotive techno 12-inch that came out on the Basic Channel sublabel Chain Reaction in 2001 (that one remains highly sought-after online and was one of FACT's "25 Best Dub Techno Tracks of All Time").  He hasn't been heard from since, but some sleuthing by UK duo Demdike Stare has unearthed a full album's worth of new and archival material from the Japan-based producer.

The album is limited to 600 vinyl copies. The vinyl, CD editions, and digital version are out now.
