The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour, the third collection of songs from Ace of Space was initially inspired by The Red Copy Book of William Beckworth and his travels as a young man in Europe before the Industrial Revolution. Ace of Space’s Grand Tour is also a journey of imagination and memory of travelling throughout the European mainland. In some cases it is also a wish list of things to do in life, landscape painting anyone?

Available for download worldwide.

Ace of Space - All of Yesterday's TomorrowsAce of Space – All of Yesterday’s Tomorrows

One man band Ace of Space’s ‘All of Yesterday’s Tomorrows’ long player opens with ‘New Ways to Travel in Style, Comfort and Luxury’, a bustling techno track with a spooky Middle Eastern vibe. What follows is an eleven track foray into an electronic, atmospheric haze, with a generically unusual line in classic rock guitar riffs and ethnically inspired samples that elevate it above the its spacey electronic peers. Short, individual bursts of sweeping cinematic visions, ranging from eclectic sixties chill-out tracks to racing, sci-fi nightmares, this record is a mesmerising collection of intricately plotted mini soundscapes.
