**** 747 – Veiltail / Stairway EP (Aquaregia Records AQR024 – 2024)

Vancouver’s Ryan Chan aka 747 reappears with two atmospheric 303 journeys on the Canadian label Aquaregia. Unrelated to Aqua Regia, the founder of Irdial Discs, the imprint run by Emily Nicoll in Toronto keeps the focus on acid techno, which goes airborne in 747’s interpretations.

“Veiltail” is of more ordinary kind, which after a buoyant intro doesn’t conceal dancefloor ambitions and would work well in a mix next to “Age Of Love”. A strong recommendation gets the B-side’s “Stairway”. Here 747 starts with broken rhythms, before the underlying drone activates fiery 303 sequences and dreamy arps. Bearably trancy, the track excels with a marriage of power and beauty.
