Core (Black) / Two Moons
Gaffa Tape Records
TBR: 25th May
Gaffa Tape Records fasten themselves to the electronic music scene in style with this new release from Prequel Tapes. Pushing the pressure even further than before with head-searing body music that motivates the masses, Prequel Tapes shows his hand on this, the beginning in a string of releases and shows. Planned collaborations with Russian visual artist Ksenia Mozhayskaya, or nomoreless, are on the horizon. This will include live shows, a must see video, and associated artwork. Having been mixed by none other than Belgian producer and performer Peter Van Hoesen, the release clearly is destined to be enjoyed in every room size imaginable.
A melodic white noise pierces the anticipation fuelled silence, what could be described as a broken electric guitar buzzes and whistles over distorted hums. A beat penetrates the mist of sound and pushes a pattern imprint onto the fluffy formations. New tones slowly emerge in small numbers, shy to embrace the ever growing palette of waveforms. As one by one new sensations gradually trickle in, the bubbling frenzy of sonic coagulate thickens. All breaks into swelling energetic surge, and with a click of a button, a bass driven beat throws in a significant forward motion. Velocity increases as bar by bar the heavy duty industrial techno throws us further out into mechanical space.
When Two Moons begins, a powdery synthesiser creeps over a fragmented landscape. Once it has reached a certain point, additional sounds begin to twinkle like artificial stars in a sub-terrainian sky. The droplets start to fall like globules of digital rain, coloured like children's sweets and merging with the still active white noise gently warming up the whole piece. Penetrative tones nudge ever further into the bubble of headspace created by the framework of the track, dripping with puncturing vibe and timbre. When the last bars unwrap themselves the pressure subsides to reveal only the crackling fire of what ought to be sticky vinyl.
