st88 As soon as I heard the first 5 tracks I bought the 2 Disc set (it was the last one!) Incredible mix of different styles, yielding an enjoyable mix. Some tracks, such as Viltrum, sound reminiscent of Come to Daddy whereas some bring out more peaceful and mostly beat-including rhythms. All-around an excellent collection. Favorite track: Viltrum.

about

Eddie Symons has been releasing music under his Bovaflux alias for 15 years now, so it's not surprising that he's managed to gather a hoard of unreleased material along the way. After recently uncovering a stack of long lost CDrs with dozens of unreleased tracks, Eddie set about putting together an archive collection, split into three volumes.

The first of these, presented here as a pay-what-you-want digital download covers the time period post Highpoint Lowlife, after "Where There Was Nothing", on to his years living in Germany and up to the release of the follow up album Invariant. Fans of melodic electronics along the lines of Plaid, Mrs Jynx, etc will find a lot to like here, with playful synths and warm bass lines and plenty of tasty beats to chew over, as well as the odd experimental and ambient excursion.

Volume 2 of Routes, which takes the form of 11 bonus tracks (running time 48mins), digs further back in time, from around 1998 to 2007, with some tracks taken from very early Bovaflux demo recordings, while others were signed to labels but never ended up coming out for one reason or another. Haimokin is actually the odd one out of the collection, as this actually was released, as part of the idm remix helix project, but that has somehow managed to be wiped from the internet, and even then only likely existed as a 128kbps mp3. Also included in this batch are a couple of previously unheard versions of tracks from "Where There Was Nothing", including a very early original version of the title track.

We are also offering this as a special 2 disc set. And as a special thank you to everyone who orders this, included with each limited edition metal tin edition is a download code for volume 3, featuring 20+ more tracks.
