The Third Man – Pipes At Helios Canyon


This isn’t out until 8 July but I thought you might like to hear it. For those who like Italo and JMJ.

The Third Man is Toby Leeming and this EP contains a couple of originals and a remix from his Beyond The Heliosphere album. The original of Pipes At Helios Canyon is a sprawling, driving italo synth epic. It really does have the essence of JMJ running through its veins. I thought it a cracker. The remix from Legowelt has stronger shades of techno and a bit of Blade Runner thrown in for good measure. Good but in a completely different way to the original.

EP clips

Blurb: ‘Pipes at Helios Canyon’ is the second single taken from The Third Man’s debut album ‘Beyond The Heliosphere’, which was released in May. British born, London based producer The Third Man (Toby Leeming) had previously delivered releases on influential electronic labels like Ai, ART and Tabernacle before EPM put out his ‘Double Dawn’ single earlier this year. Accompanied by reworkings from like-minded producers Claro Intelecto and John Heckle, it presented the first sample of what ‘Beyond The Heliosphere’ had in store – a fine-tuned and captivating long-player. With its feet planted in Techno the album also explored House, Electro and dubbier flavours, as well as the Italo sound of tracks like ‘Pipes At Helios Canyon’, presented here. Displaying the diverse talent of this confident young producer, the retro synth electronica of ‘Pipes…’ has the emotion of Moroder, with the playfulness of Jarre. The Third Man will be performing live at SuicideCircus in Berlin on Friday 5th July, ahead of the release of ‘Pipes of Helios Canyon’ both digitally and on 12” vinyl from 8th July.
