Chicago deep house hunter Potions unveils his brilliant album 'MIDI Jazz Bass' on 12"! Volumes upon volumes of Potions cuts have been released on cassette over the past couple years but this debut wax has been well worth the swimming. Unparalleled vibes and sounds from this mysteriously dreamy groove master.
"The music comes from the middle of America but it aims for the middle of space. Cosmic Fidelity (Lillerne Tapes) is the latest album from Chicago’s Potions and his “one man and a synth” approach to composition is at a peak on this release. The chord clusters and warm fluttering tone whirls make us plain feel good. The final cut is titled “Optimistic Goodbye” and while that could be taken as one spaceman’s death note, we think of it as a big smiley face staring into the clouds before a 2001-esque odyssey. Potions’ music is simple on the surface, but what makes it successful is the dynamics and pacing employed one what could’ve been one dude wanking his keys. Instead we are treated to a real trip into the heavens." --International Tapes
