Andrew Weatherall si e’ costruito una carriera di tutto rispetto nella techno inglese. Come produttore passando dalla downbeat alla techno sperimentale attraverso gli anni '90, Weatherall avrebbe potuto facilmente cavalcare il big beat (Chemical Brothers) alla fine del decennio, scegliendo invece di seguire un approccio all’IDM più all'avanguardia. 

 Fonda una fanzine chiamata Boys Own alla fine degli anni '80 e ben presto si afferma come DJ leader nella scena acid house londinese. In quel periodo remixa "Worlds in Motion" dei New Order e, insieme a Paul Oakenfold, "Alleluia" di Happy Mondays. Il successo travolgente di Screamadelica dei Primal Scream trasforma Weatherall in uno dei migliori remixer e produttori britannici. Dopo un periodo di lavoro come DJ alla influente radio KISS-FM, gestisce due club a Londra, e nel 1993 lavora con la band techno-pop One Dove. Nello stesso anno, Weatherall forma i Sabres of Paradise con Jagz Kooner e Gary Burns, che rilasciato una serie di EP d’avanguardia, techno ambient e sperimentali sull'etichetta Sabrettes di Weatherall (raccolte anche su due compilation Warp Records), continuando a produrre e remixare vari brani di Beth Orton e, nel 1996, sotto forma Two Lone Swordsmen con Keith Tenniswood.

Qualia, which spans eight tracks, will be the UK maverick's second LP in as many years following 2016's Convenanza. (Before that, he'd not released a solo full-length since 2009.) Nina Walsh, who also worked on Convenanza, helped mix and engineer the new record, while the work of late French musician Erick Legrand also features. Qualia is out on September 29th via Gothenburg-based label Höga Nord Rekords. 

"Mr Brackstone, my psychic shepherd, when confronted by the facts would probably say it was cosmic synchronicity but then again he would because he's Jung at heart," writes Weatherall. "Others may cite mere coincidence. These are the facts. I'll leave the metaphysical debate for another time." 

He adds: "It's all about the black notebooks as memorial device and 'The Black Notebook' and 'This Is Memorial Device.' At the same time as reading Mr Modiano and Mr Keenan I was ensconced in The Woodleigh Research Facility investigating a method of composition sparked by a random event too prosaic for the telling; unless of course we go back to 'The Red Book' and see the hand of Jah [the D.M.T molecule that steers human existence] at work. After all it was him/her/non-binary that sent me the 'shave your beard off' message. And the 'don't buy any more drugs' one. 

"Whatever your leanings, the music on Qualia is the result of images, feelings 
and thought processes stirred up by Monsieur Modiano and Mister Keenan channeled through the medium of a sonic notebook—in itself the memoir of somebody else's life/fiction. My own black notebooks, like Jean's [Modiano's protagonist] stir the silt of memory and birth as many mysteries as memories. They also provided the track titles."
