Hector Oaks

 

Title:

Label:
Key Vinyl

 

Cat#:

Release Date:

Format:
vinyl

 

Tracklist:
A1)
Our Way Of Escape

A2)
New Beginning

B1
Internal Disorder

B2)
Splitted Mind

 

Press Info:
KEY Records have a knack for talent-spotting. Over its short history the label, headed by underground advocate Freddy K, has plucked early releases from the likes of Conrad Van Orton and Shapednoise, whilst drawing attention to the insightful sounds of upstarts PVS and Hector Oaks on it’s most recent release, ‘Knife’. Now comes Hector Oaks’ frst full EP for Key, which sees the Madrid-native deliver a cool set of functional foor works, designed with just one thing in mind.

Taking cues from classic Detroit and contemporary Berlin, this four-tracker jumps straight in with “Our Way Of Escape”. The ring of bells and urgent tones are then sunk into a low and bassy groove on “New Beginning”, plied here and there with charged surges to make this a much more heady afair. On the B-side “Internal Disorder” heads even deeper into basement techno territory with thick, distempered atmospherics and dissonant rattles. Finally, “Splitted Mind” delivers a melting pot of caustic noise, albeit kept at a restrained and hypnotic simmer. All in all it’s safe to say we’ve not seen the last of Hector Oaks.

Press Info:
It was early 2007 when Inigo Kennedy inaugurated Token. Since that Identify Yourself 12” the Belgian label has gone from strength to strength, integrating both Kennedy and Ashley Burchett, aka Ø [Phase], into becoming integral cogs in the Token machine. In between releases by Grovskopa, Oscar Mulero and Go Hiyama, both Ø [Phase] and Inigo Kennedy dominated Token’s output, but it wasn’t until Burchett’s watershed Binary Opposition that Token received the shower of praise it deserved. Following this, label founder Kr!z issued three remix 12”s of that release which, including Token regulars, took in a profound cast of producers to reprocess “Binary Opposition” by the way of Sigha, Peter Van Hoesen, Planetary Assault Systems and Ben Klock. It was here Token stamped their authority on contemporary techno.

Since then Token has grown exponentially, bringing into their fold artists like Xhin, Mark Broom and Rødhåd, while Ctrls, formally one half of Northern Structures, has seen his solo career flourish on Token with the release of five records to date, and he joins Inigo Kennedy and Ø [Phase] as a label stalwart.Additionally this year, Orphx and Ancient Methods debuted their relentless Eschaton collaboration on Token, and Christian Wünsch’s Spherical Coordinates dalliance with Oscar Mulero has gained even more momentum with a second release called Kinematics Equations. Now, seven years after that debut Kennedy record, Token present Aphelion, a nine-track CD and triple vinyl grandstand of new and exclusive material from label regulars and like-minded artists whom Token founder Kr!z specifically commissioned for this milestone release.

The penultimate record before Aphelion was a second Token 12” by Rødhåd, another artist adding to the cultivation of the label’s sound and roster, and for this compilation the Berliner supplies his cosmically inspired “Haumea”. Joining the Dystopian founder on Aphelion are three of the UK’s most influential techno artists: Surgeon, James Ruskin and Luke Slater under his Planetary Assault Systems alias who provide Token with solo material for the first time after previously appearing on the imprint in remix form. Entirely new names to grace the label via Aphelion include Stroboscopic Artefacts founder Lucy, and Blawan and Pariah’s Karenn project, while label faithfuls Inigo Kennedy, Ø [Phase] and Ctrls naturally commit three Token defining productions.

Casting one’s eye over Token’s back catalogue and it’s clear to see the label is a staunch advocate of absolute techno, remaining steadfast in issuing quality material that remains true to classic strands of the genre regardless of its popularity flux. In that respect, Aphelion – a word used to describe the point in orbit when a planet or comet is farthest from the sun – provides a simple analogy that the magnetic force of Token, unfazed by the shadows cast by popular opinion, will proudly shine light on their artists and given styles.

“We started in an era where our genre was very unpopular,” Kr!z explains. “And in the end that seemed a big advantage for us, because when everyone was giving up, we started our mission.” Regularly hosting label nights in prominent clubs around the world, Token has become a label supported by a wide-ranging body of artists like Âme and Ben Klock to Efdemin, Truss and Ancient Methods. With the label now branching out into album and compilation territory, Token’s duty to techno may not yet be accomplished, but it’s been a job well done.

Concrete Musique

 

Label:

Radio

03)

04)
Death To Valley

 

Press Info:
Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver reach the big 4-0 with the help of Chris Jarman, the commanding officer behind the Kamikaze Space Programme. Looking to redefine the concept of uncompromising from bass culture’s traditional Bristol HQ, ‘Concrete Musique’ is four tracks of loud, hard-nosed, techno-taunting speaker pressure.

Both ‘The Bailiff’ and ‘Network Rail’ power off boxy kick drums: such is their statement of intimidation, not much else is needed to accompany this campaign of haymaking through the arena.With percussion veering between tub-thumping and machine gunned tribalism, the pair set about a session of straight up and down ear-bashing. ‘The Bailiff’ carries the thinnest and daintiest of supernatural airs, while ‘Network Rail’ and its spearing loops demand to be housed in a hangar reaching breaking point.

Dancing on the live rail and taking a buzzsaw to its bottom end is the blackened electro breakbeat of ‘Radio’, laying down body-popping lino before the techno undertone turns it into a bed of nails. KSP’s palette is again sparse, watching the sparks fly while cowbells ring in the distance, making a date with the Deathstar for all poppers and lockers brave enough to face its wrath.

‘Death to the Valley’ is a versatile beast. Thanks to its explosive bass foundation, it can be found sweeping grime and trap before it, hanging out in the deepest techno recesses, and stomping its breakbeat feet. Another seethingly bare backdrop, punctuated by lab squiggles and signals vainly trying to keep a leash on the marauder it has let loose, means you should wear protection: contents are white hot.

Press Info (English):
Xen is the latest in a line of uncompromising, forward-thinking releases from the 24 year old Venezuelan artist – aka Alejandro Ghersi – who first started turning heads with his Baron Libre, Stretch 1 and Stretch 2 EPs in 2012, before further wowing with his work on FKA twigs’s EP1 (and then subsequent work this year’s LP1), Kanye West’s Yeezus and his own blistering &&&&& mixtape the following year.

Xen will be available on CD, LP, limited LP edition with bonus 10″ and download, and features stunning artwork from long time Arca visual collaborator Jesse Kanda. A limited edition vinyl format will also be available. Limited to just 500 copies, this special format will be hand-numbered and sealed in black PVC and will also include a bonus 10” record of unreleased Arca material that won’t be available anywhere else, continuing Arca’s tradition of producing highly sought-after vinyl recordings (the recent vinyl version of his &&&&& mixtape sold out within days of going on sale).

Meanwhile, Arca is set to perform a series of North American dates later this month. Tickets for all shows are on sale now, with UK and European shows due to be announced later this year.

 

Press Info (German):
Arca enthüllt erste Details seines langerwarteten Debütalbums. Xen erscheint am 31.10.2014 auf Mute. „Thievery“, ein erstes Stück daraus, ist hier zu hören (siehe unter “Listen”).

Xen erscheint auf CD, LP und Download. Das Cover-Artwork stammt aus der Feder Jesse Kanda, der seit langem bereits mit Arca auf visueller Ebene kollaboriert. Zudem wird es eine auf 500 Stück limitierte, handsignierte und in schwarzes PVC gehüllte Vinyl-Edition geben, die eine weitere 10-Inch mit exklusivem Material enthält – ganz in der Tradition Arcas, seinen Releases weitere Sammlerstücke zu r Seite zu stellen. (die aktuelle Vinylversion seines &&&&-Mixtapes war in wenigen Tagen ausverkauft).

Xen ist die jüngste einer Reihe von kompromisslosen Veröffentlichungen des erst 24-jährigen venezolanischen Künstlers – bürgerlich Alejandro Ghersi – der 2012 mit den EPs Baron Libre, Stretch 1 und Stretch 2 auf sich aufmerksam machte, bevor er mit seiner Arbeit für FKA twigs EP1 (und nachfolgend ihres diesjährigen Albums) und Kanye Wests Yeezus weiter staunen machte. Sein eigenes Mixtape &&&& nicht zu erwähnen.

Zunächst steht eine Reihe von Livedaten in Nordamerika an, die Tickets sind bereits im Vorverkauf. Daten in Europa werden zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt folgen.
