Seven Villas is proud to present their latest well-crafted long-playing techno release. Pablo Bolivar & Nacho Sanchez reunite and team up for this excursion into classic inspired rhythmic sound on ‘Distances’. Over the past 20 years, these 2 friends have shared their love of the history of Detroit techno, dub techno and more recently, electro. Since they last crossed paths in 2014, their love for collecting and playing records has now fully grown into creating their own music. And what more meaningful way to honor that musical friendship than with making music based on that early mutual passion for that Detroit-Berlin techno connection. ‘Distances’ is just that simply. A 16-track deep foray into all the things the love and respect about the foundations and traditions of techno music. Each essence and theme of the genre is represented with this tracklist collaboration.

‘Distances’ succeeds on many levels. From a production standpoint, everything is well mixed and the songs flow perfectly into each other. Individually, they can stand on their own also. The songs are beautifully constructed and sequenced. No particular sounds on tracks are overdone or overblown. Everything is done in patterns more so than sounds. The true test of techno producing. And how to make less sound like more. The history of techno is honored here at a high level by them wonderfully. Two music enthusiasts who listen to techno music as much as they make techno music. This is the result of their inspirations and collaboration. The ‘Distances’ of the techno historical map is abbreviated into one album thanks to Pablo Bolivar and Nacho Sanchez. Thank you to them for the guideposts.
