Liftoff is the debut EP from electronic live performer V-Stok. Combining analogue electronics and soundscapes, inspired by techno, drone and IDM. Live guitar playing flies between gentle and distant space wails through to ecstatic, irresponsible shredding. As such, the record is a bold and uncompromising effort which refuses to be taken hostage to any particular stylistic ideology – combining the stern intensity of techno with a genuine playfulness.
The EP was recorded in one take as a continuous performance and therefore puts greater value on the performance aspect than on creating a perfectly balanced mix.
To complement the auditory journey, the artist has put together a video collage of vintage spacecraft footage from the NASA archive (watch below).
