great music this promises to be.
Praise for Recon's "White Label":
"Recon's music is detailed, marshal and mesmeric" BBCi Experimental.
"Glimpses into infinite rhythms that will go on reverberating long
after we've redirected our ears" The Wire.
Praise For Fisk Industries' "Isle Of Wight EP":
"Tastily treated breaks given weighty ballast by generous swathes
of cybernetic low end." The Wire
Sticking with the digital exclusives this month, we've put two
new albums and a live set from Marshall Watson up on the site
for free download...
DALGLISH : OTJOHR
Scheduled to be our second release almost three years ago now.
Due to varied problems, delays, finances and the best laid plans,
the album hasn't ever seen the light of day which was a complete
shame as the music contained on it is pure genius. We thought it
best to get it out there rather than languishing on our hard
drives gathering bit-rot!
Dalglish is a newer pseudonym for Chris Douglas, better known to
the world (or more correctly, to the obscure experimental
audiophiles of the world!) as O.S.T. or Rook Vallard/Vallad(e).
Originally based in San Francisco, Chris left at the age of 14
for Detroit and then New York to find creative freedom outside
the classical piano and keyboard lessons of his childhood
- only to return to San Francisco after pleasantly crossing
paths with Richie Hawtin and Mad Mike of fabled UR Records.
Back in San Francisco Chris made quite a name for himself,
cutting his teeth alongside Kit Clayton, Twerk, and Kid606.
Never one for making things easy for himself, Chris' music is
as uncompromising and original as the man himself, veering
more into Stockhausen territory than the party driven anthems
of his San Francisco contemporaries. He has released on imprints
ranging from Dimitri Fergadis' Phthalo to Simballrec, Plug
Research, Diskono, Worm Interface, Polyrhthmic and Emanate. He
was invited by Autechre to play at 2003's All Tomorrows Parties
festival, and has since resided in Berlin.
RECON : WHITE LABEL DECONSTRUCTION
Second album up is Recon's "White Label Decontruction", a
companion piece to his recently released White Label album.
Chris Coode, the man behind Recon and also known as Motion
(12k, Fat Cat) had many pieces of source material left over
from his Recon project and while working on a live set
for this years Placard festival, had reworked an other
albums worth of material which he has fashioned into this
web release mini album - 8 tracks of bit-mapped micro-dub,
processed textures and subtle acoustics.
And if they both sound a bit too experimental for ya...
Marshall Watson recorded his set from his Album release
party in July, a beautiful 40 minute piece of crunching beats,
soaring harmonics, and beautiful melodies. A nice companion
piece to have and compare against his recent "Time Was Later.."
album. More uptempo and danceable, yet still maintaing the
unique melodies that make his music so recognisable.
