Soul Capsule - Law Of Grace (TR035)
As Soul Capsule, Baby Ford and Thomas Melchior made some of minimal techno’s most accomplished records. It has been many years since they stopped turning out new material – sadly – but their archive tracks are still in hot demand and undeniably relevant. While 1999’s ‘Lady Science’ might be their most famous offering, this EP from 2001 on Aspect Music is no less vital and it will currently cost you well over L250 on second-hand markets. It is Ford’s Trelik label who reissues it here in all its glory: the entirety of the a-side is taken up with ‘Law Of Grace,’ a delightfully deep and breezy minimal dub house roller with pensive chords draped over the frictionless drums. ‘Meltdown’ has a more experimental feel with brushed metal drums beneath a wordless vocal musing. The cult ‘Lady Science’ (Tek Mix) is also inched with the whole package being remastered by D&M to make this one utterly essential.
