Kashual Plastik (12" LP) Kashual Plastik 005
Ambient / Folk / Experimental, New Wave / Post-Punk, News, Techno
Sound collages and primitive drum-machine driven tracks, relying on atmosphere, a sense of the bizarre, and a Tascam Portastudio
Group A : Group A
Mannequin Records (12" EP) MNQ 117
New Wave / Post-Punk, News, Techno
Berlin based Japanese industrial synth duo group A make their debut on Mannequin Records with a killer 3-tracks self titled EP. With their mixture of dark minimal synth, avant-noise, striking visuals and performance art, the duo still carries on the very breath of early industrial pioneers.
E.O.M. : CCP003
Calling Cards Publishing (Cassette Tape) CCP003
Leaning towards ambient and atmospheric noise, the sound of E.O.M. moves between improvised layers of synth and electric guitar. The recorded structures are usually played and looped using various cassette recordings and fx pedals, creating a sometimes dense and undercurrent musical soundscape
The Cube Of Unknowing : Burren Mount
Fort Evil Fruit (Cassette Tape) FEF47
Ambient / Folk / Experimental
Weaving together tattered fragments of dissolving synths, blurred rhythms and other sonic visitations. The result evokes the romanticism of late night end-credits, displaced soundtracks, straight-to-video erotica, unidentified radio transmissions and covert experiments.
Mosa : Grafiti Tapes 8
Ambient / Folk / Experimental, House, New Wave / Post-Punk, Techno
Mosa’s tape for Grafiti Tapes includes original music made by the artist, these tracks are hard to define but vague strains and sounds of trap, gothic and experimental music can be heard in this weird and twisted hybrid. Equally loose and organic, the music soundtracks Mosa’s visual art seamlessly.
Ponk + Omega III : Grafiti Tapes 7
Klasse Wrecks (Cassette Tape) Grafiti Tapes 7
A historical celebration of early UK forays into both hip-hop and graffiti, the embryonic stages of a scene beginning to find its own unique style in the late 80s/early 90s. This C60 tape features pieces made especially for the project and a heady mix of UK Rap, Breakbeat and fast Britcore styles.
