"For the next release on Echoism Recordings we have chosen to mix some of our favorite artists which we have worked with in the last few years and have influenced us greatly. Choosing a more underground and daring concept we've asked electronica wizards Solvent & Jori Hulkkonen to produce their interpretation of Lydia Lunch's 'Master Alchemist.' Lydia Lunch must be one of our favorite all time artists. An artist who defies every categorization through conquering new territories and gaining international recognition for the innovative quality of her work. With Echoism004 we have chosen two electronic artists with encyclopedentical understanding of electronic music and Lydia Lynch to interpret and produce the soundtrack for the hypnotic master alchemist. Solvent has created his own unique version of electro-pop: too elegant and sincere for the electroclash set, too complex and contemporary to sound like it was recorded in 1981, and too seeped in the time-honored traditions of melody, songwriting and hands-on synthesis to be lost in the overcrowded world of IDM. Along with some notable remixes for Soft Cell, Alter Ego, and Adult., Solvent has also contributed standout tracks to several influential electronica compilations in recent years, including Putting The Morr Back In Morrissey (Morr Music), Disco Nouveau (Ghostly International), and Misery Loves Company (Ersatz Audio). Zyntherius (born 1973) hails from the northern town of Kemi, Finland. Raised up around the Arctic circle, below freezing point and under the influence of a cocktail of synthpop and early electro, house and techno handily available from the Swedish radio, Jori quickly developed a taste, and more importantly, a passion for electronic music."
