After alarming interest with Oz Waves' resurrection Will I Dream, Andy Rantzen returns to Efficient Space with 1/66 - a collection of four dubs from his 1999/2000 archives.
Home recorded above a lawyer’s office and next door to a brothel, the retrospective is lead by the earth shattering digi stepper Rock Steady. Originally intended for an abandoned dub album, Rock Steady and Fantasy Dub were saved from the cutting room floor by Australian CD-only compilations on Creative Vibes and vital collective Clan Analogue, while Green River was never released. Now demanding wider appreciation, the dubs finally find union with Green Man’s New York hip hop/dancehall style, lifted from his second solo album The Blue Hour Vol. 3: Deep Blue.
Humbly excelling in all electronic forms, Rantzen helped guide techno-rave duo Itch-E & Scratch-E through the 90s with Paul Mac. Winning the inaugural Best Dance Release category at the 1995 Aria Awards, Mac thanked “all of Sydney's ecstasy dealers, without whom this award would not be possible,” while Rantzen stayed at home. The two would also operate incognito as Boo Boo & Mace and Screensaver, often collaborating on looney dubs with Sheriff Lindo - the master of seismic shocks down under.
Rantzen’s earliest work stretches back to Pelican Daughters, an ensemble who proliferated industrial-leaning ambient and tape loop experiments.
