«One day, not long ago, Hungarian Daniel P. decided to create some loops for his radio show at Torespont Radio. Some of those loops grew into tracks and that's pretty much the story behind Project Swirl, Daniel's minimal dub-infused electro outfit. Since then, he has released a couple of EPs - on Eastern Recordings and Inoquo netlabels - and a compilation track in some Russian underground netlabel. Meanwhile, a couple more are underway, and this one 'Alpha Centauri EP' fell in test tube's lap some months ago. And we're glad it did.
Project Swirl's sound comes as a true descendant of oldschool Basic Channel material, with a bit of monolake's minimal techno and ~scape's future dub into the mix. While 'Alpha Centauri' travels mostly into electro-techno territory, 'Logical' and 'Illogical' (two faces of the same coin, so to speak...) are truly dubish pieces, reminders of Deadbeat's more down to earth 'dance' tracks, but with a slight touch of german cerebral techno for good measure. 'Tn' comes from Daniel's more 'experimental' side, if you wish. It's downbeat and not for the dance floor, but nice anyway. Sweet!» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«Very nice, a record anyone into electro beats would love. Very lovely old schoolish synths and basslines.»
- Dorlev Divad [EARLabs] / February 13, 2007

«Pour une fois, on quitte l’ambient chère aux net labels que je fréquente habituellement pour aller faire un tour du coté de l’électro minimale et robotique de Project Swirl (projet derrière lequel se cache le hongrois Daniel P.) qui livre pour label Test tube un ep vraiment intéressant qui, derrière son aspect ascétique et froid, se révèle, après quelques écoutes, assez stimulant.
On pense évidement à Gerald Donald (plus connu sous les noms de Dopplereffekt, Drexcya…) mais aussi aux petites perles minimales que l’on retrouve fréquemment sur les toujours passionnantes compilations du label Kompakt. Bref le genre de son que j’affectionne encore assez.»

«A priori, on reste dans l'espace. Project Swirl, du Hongrois Daniel P., offre un précis d'old school électro, type début 90 avec en point de mire Detroit. Bon, rien de révolutionnaire en somme. Ce n'est pas désagréable, mais pas non plus ce que j'écouterais tous les jours. Bref, pour les inconditionnels du genre...»

«Nuevo trabajo de Project Swirl, también justo antes de acabar el año, cuatro temas en su estilo, minimal techno con reminiscencias house y dub. Un sonido muy trabajado.
Muy pronto Project Swirl hará presentará una marathón de netlabels en la radio donde colabora, Torespont Radio. Contará con sesiones y directos de varios artistas de la escena, entre todo esto una sesión netdj especial de hermético.
Mantendremos informados.»
