Another generation is here. Yet, the fascination for PROJECT PITCHFORK is unbroken. The worth of the endeavour founded by Peter Spilles in 1991 is bigger than ever, the role as a pioneer, as a true icon rests calmly on his shoulders. Although PROJECT PITCHFORK are in the spotlight for a quarter of a century now (as they always have been and will be), there's still a lot to discover in this influential discography. A dive into the past reveals records whose rediscovery is as rewarding as revisiting a place that holds a particular emotional connection.
For Peter Spilles and countless of his fans, the record "Wonderland / One Million Faces" is such a place, a cathedral of remembrance, a holy shrine of musical longing. Well into the anniversary year of this Dark Electro goliath, Peter Spilles returns to this immensely important piece of work. What he did was a production facelift, a musical and visual upgrade in a way only someone dearly attached to these tracks can do. Someone who loves them from the bottom of his heart. To classify this enterprise as a mere re-release would not do any justice at all to the effort and passion Peter Spilles put into it.
Originally released as a download-only record, thus once again being well ahead of its time, Peter Spilles gave in to the numerous wishes of his fans and released "Wonderland / One Million Faces" again as a CD in 2007. After the quite experimental, courageous and melancholic opus "Kaskade", this marked yet another incarnation of vibrant, associative force, a hermetically connected conceptual work of immense depth, an extraordinary and, because of that, precious album. Here, lengthy compositions celebrate the freedom of the arts, rather tell a story than just placing club hit after club hit like fake pearls on a string. An album for the inner cinema ? a sonic, lyrical and visual manifest.
Everyone knowing Peter Spilles just a little is aware of his quest for perfectionism. And, to be honest, just a little bit more than that. Thus, he invested all the time this demanding new release needed in order to make "Wonderland / One Million Faces" an outstanding work of electronic supremacy once more. Therefore, he opens the sonically extremely dense record with an all-new remix of "One Million Faces", making the entrance into this unforgettable world irresistible by playing his trump cards and delivering a massively arranged example of PROJECT PITCHFORK club dominance. After that, the stunned listener seamlessly drifts into the proper world of this very special album, entering a universe that in 2016 will finally and rightfully claim its place in the throne room of the PROJECT PITCHFORK olympus.
