When faced with a tricky decision at dinner—debating between one fine wine or dish, or the other—Peter Van Hoesen, more often than not, turns to me and says, “Both”. Hold that thought...we’ll return.
Moving on is the process of throwing away—cleaning house and cleaning mind—but it can also be the process of finding. I can see Peter going through the hard drives, reflecting on Time to Express’s ten past years, finding a curiosity and thinking, “This might look nice on someone’s shelf, just needs a little dusting...” Or an evocative rediscovery, “Brings back memories...” And probably a few furrowed, “Hmm, what’s this?” And I can see fans happy he spent this time hunting, dusting, and restoring.
In Part 1 there are sketches of almost tracks that hint at paths not taken, or seeds of future variations, together with more full-blown explorations to grab you.
As we move through the slow-burning Part 2, we get pulled into periods of distinct sounds. I’ve always loved an early production period whose geometric sounds struck me as those of a sharp pillow. We have a few sharp pillows here.
And in Part 3 we have a full feast of psychedelic raving numbers and new modular-sound-bending beasts, enough of these and more for a full album. How much of this is uncovered...?
There’s a time to express where one stands today, and there’s a time to let go and move on. I suspect Peter, looking carefully over the menu, reached his decision, looked up, and said “Both.”

Peter Van Hoesen presents Uncovered 2008-2018 Vol 1-3 - a three-part, 52 track compilation documenting his sound over ten years of the beloved Time To Express imprint. Consisting of Peter's unreleased tracks, rediscovered sketches and material from his live shows, Uncovered offers a coherent overview of his creative process during this period, deconstructing his inimitable aesthetic across three distinct volumes.
Of the three volumes, each one chronicles a different aspect of his sound. Volume 2 shows 19 tracks on display, varying from slow, bass-heavy sludgers to more melodic electronica. Fans will recognize the producer's early interest in slow bpm techno, often with a distinct dub flavour. Other tracks apply a more playful approach, showcasing Van Hoesen's skill in applying distinct melodies to a darker framework.

I ordered the CD version and: never received anything, not even the misprint. Not one reaction on requests - so I handed it over to paypal - furtheron no reaction from the seller: Meanwhile I got full refund from paypal. Worst label I ever recognized on bandcamp. Yeah, to quote 'themilkman', they're really "clowns". I'm gonna ignore this label. veracci
