Given his prolific, decades long-career, it’s little surprise that Kirk Degiorgio has more than a few lost musical surprises in his back-catalogue. ‘Sphere’, his new EP on Garage Hermétique, finds Degiorgio in his As One guise, delivering a lost classic on vinyl for the first time alongside a pair of rarities and a brand new mix by Detroit pioneer Juan Atkins.

Title track ‘Sphere’ – recently recovered from a 1995 DAT that was lost for years – finds the British producer turning in a track so deeply atmospheric and instantaneous, that it’s only testimony to his inherent skill that anyone would ‘lose’ such a number. Truly effective, sophisticated deep-house, it turns in a somewhat jazzy, Detroit-indebted melody to euphoric effect. ‘Perspective’, recorded in 1995, gets more soulful still, revealing a dewy-eyed, utopian landscape of pads and quietly emotional synth work. Rounding off the EP, 1994’s ‘Asa Nisi Masa’, covers similarly evocative territory, expanded on in a more percussive remix by techno innovator & originator, Juan Atkins.

‘Sphere’ marks the fifth release for Garage Hermétique. Founded and curated by Brussels-born/Berlin-based musician and DJ Onirik, the label acts as an uncompromising outlet for both his own productions, his experimental Oni-Ki project alongside Brussels pianist, Minoki, and other like-minded producers. Garage Hermétique has also enlisted a string of established & highly regarded remixers, such as XDB, Nummer and Views.

A second 12″ of As One rarities (featuring another brand new remix from an influential US producer) will be released on Garage Hermétique later this year.
