Press Info:
We are well into 2015 already, so it is time for our second release of this year. This time we have the pleasure to present you the excellent duo I/Y to make their debute on DR.

Objection is a dark yet dance floor ready track, driven by playful rhythmic synths, pulsating low ends. The well designed stabs and atmosphere in Primary, ensure it can be played at almost any moment in a set. Furthermore, Swedens tripmaster Acronym delivers two outstanding takes on the EPs A side, adding an amazingly layered amount of depth, while maintaining the driving force of the original. Essential dance floor material!

The I/Y boys finishing things of with yet another Primary banger.

Press Info:
after a break of 5 years, alva noto continues his xerrox series with »xerrox vol. 3«, entitled “towards space”, a journey that started with »xerrox vol. 1«, referring to the “old world”, and »xerrox vol. 2«, heading “to the new world”.

using the process of copying as a basis, the xerrox series deals with the manipulation of data by means of endless reproduction. due to the inherent vice of the procedure that becomes especially visible when copies are made from copies, everyday sounds are so much altered that they can be hardly associated with the source material anymore. as a result, entirely new sounds are created that, being copies of originals, become originals themselves.

on »xerrox vol. 3«, a new aspect enters the scene. inspired by childhood film memories from the 1970s including tarkovsky‘s adaption of “solaris” and “la isla misteriosa y el capitán nemo” based on jules verne‘s “the mysterious island”, the record shows alva noto‘s private side. with its very intimate atmosphere, it is a personal reflection of dreams, an imaginary journey through emotional landscapes or, as he himself puts it, a “cinematographic emotion of a soundtrack to a film that actually does not exist in reality.”

alvo noto himself further states, “I see »xerrox vol. 3« as my most personal album so far. I have to admit that this emotional output is a surprise even for myself. it remains exciting how the last two albums of this series will sound like.”

Press Info (English):
With U-TON 07 we’re introducing Σ (pronounced: ‘Summe’). This collective of Berlin-based musicians has been propagating in the city’s subculture during the past two years. With this release ? are offering some hypertextural and -percussive music.

“These tracks should be regarded as an invitation. We would like to approach change, the new and unknown with an open mind in order to challenge our perception of union and normality. We understand this music as a consolidation of communicative events which intends to interlink and encourage appreciation of complex differences through friction, interference and beat instead of renouncing them by establishing perfect harmony. Beyond what is currently conceivable, we focus on a joint musical and physical experience which also intends to make the impossible feasible.” — Σ, Berlin, January 2015

 

Press Info (German):
Mit U-TON 07 stellen wir Σ vor (sprich: ‚Summe‘). Dieses Kollektiv in Berlin lebender Musiker hat in den letzten zwei Jahren seine Kreise in der städtischen Subkultur gezogen. Mit diesem Release bieten ? hyperstrukturelle und -perkussive Musik an.

„Diese Stücke sollen als eine Einladung betrachtet werden. Wir möchten Veränderungen, dem Neuen und Unbekannten mit Offenheit begegnen und so unsere Vorstellungen von Gemeinschaft und Normalität hinterfragen. Diese Musik verstehen wir als eine Verdichtung kommunikativer Ereignisse, die durch Hervorhebung von Reibungen, Interferenzen und Schwebungen dazu anregen soll, komplexe Differenzen anzuerkennen und Verknüpfungen zu bilden, anstatt sie im perfekten Einklang zu verleugnen. Jenseits des derzeitig Vorstellbaren fokussieren wir ein gemeinschaftliches musikalisches, körperliches Erleben, das das Unmögliche darüberhinaus möglich machen soll.“ — Σ, Berlin, Januar 2015
