about

Delve into the discography of Steve Morley and you will discover a man of many talents with an obvious appreciation for Trance and its sub-genres who has, as a sum total of his many aliases, driven devotees to the dance-floor in their droves for decades. Cathar is Steve’s latest incarnation and it is a collaboration with Jessica B, herself no slacker behind the mixing desk, that allows them both to explore their affection for psy-trance; expressing it as a studio project and live experience. The fruits of their labour can now include the full-length feature album The Union, released by London’s source of psy-sauciness Free-Spirit Records whose own back catalogue is quick becoming the embodiment of delectability via diversity. The Union, other than the closing track which maybe the first example of psy-dubstep, is a part homage to Steve’s earliest influences of this Trance genus, Goa, fused with other, almost indistinguishable, elements from across the spectrum. Rippling with stripped-back, no-nonsense go-forward. The Union’s few frivolities and balance of clear endeavour with driving intensity permitting Cathar to stand firm in comparisons with their contemporaries and a must for those who believe divinity is a direct derivative of dancing.
