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.

Press Info:
Now a prominent feature of the London scene, Lukid presents a fresh EP on the always innovative Liberation Technologies.

An impressive follow up to his 2012 fulllength Lonely At The Top, the Crawlers EP serves up lofi, danceable electronics that elude genre. Lead track ‘Nine’ may sound familiar to some, as Evian Christ sampled its synths on ‘Propeller’, a track from his 2014 ‘Waterfall’ EP for Tri Angle Records.

Consistent with previous releases on Actress’s Werkdiscs and Lukid’s own Glum imprint, his Crawlers EP intelligently breaks ground on undefined dancefloor territory.

Press Info:
paul kendall is an engineer, mixer and sonic producer who has contributed to a number of iconic releases by artists such as barry adamson, renegade soundwave, nitzer ebb, recoil, wire, loop and as a footnote with nin and dm. he worked for many years for daniel miller’s mute records and during this period curated an experimental electronic label, parallel series. four cds were released, featuring bruce gilbert, robert hampson, simon fisher turner and andrei samsonov. in 2002 he relocated to paris and spectacularly metamorphosed his art into an electro-acoustic expression, managing to miss arsenal’s double winning glory as a result. this enforced sojourn saw him developing his compositional skills writing sound for the ballet and theatre. the album ‘capture’ was released in 2003 through french label 0101 (ici d’ailleurs), to date, the only digital intervention object available. after returning to the uk in 2007 kendall helped alan wilder develop a live incarnation of recoil. and from 2010 they toured across half the continents of the world with ‘a strange hour’ allowing kendall to experience the thrill of ‘live performance’ and refine his shapes and dance moves. on 01.10.11 saw the release of ‘angleterror’ a digital only release of 7 compositions loosely built around various guitar sounds. september 2014 sees the new long-playing record available on cd from ant-zen, ‘family value pack’. this solo artistic exposure is a precursor to the coming solo exhibition via ‘live’ performance.

the seven compositions on this album transport the artistic spirit of the british avant-garde heard in projects like dome / wire and very early clock dva towards the end of the seventies when a specific splinter group of the punk movement was exploring the length, width and depth of musical freedom / expression. in his previous work paul kendall put the emphasis on the guitar, on ‘family value pack’ it is more focused on the human voice, his own voice as well as samples of family members and a secret celebrity. except for track one, ‘scuba dis dat’ with its pushing technoid beats and horn-supplied art punk approach, this release offers collagistic, structurally unorthodox and abstract atmospheric sound spheres chimed with dark ambience – contemporary musique concrète orbiting between warmth and chill.

this album may not set the charts on fire, but it contains an amazing aural experience. the full background story: the intrigue, the denouements, the highs and lows, the cruel and the tender, will be diffused / published on paul kendall’s official webpage. for now, enjoy the headphone paint!
