HIDDEN PLACE

Retrospettiva (Vol. 2)

Peripheral Minimal

Format_dot_cdCD // £9.99

INDUSTRIAL / WAVE / ELECTRO

Cat. Number: PM9

**Edition of 200** Re-works and re-imagined versions of Hidden Place's trance-iced synth pop. Clearly influenced by the wave of '80s British synth-pop acts such as OMD, Depeche Mode or Clan of Xymox, but not beholden to them, 'Retrospettiva Vol. Two' follows a similar route to your electro-soul as Visonia via techno-sleek rhythms and radiant production finish that stands out from the crowd.

"Brooklyn duo Mark Rogers & Mary Byrne recorded their debut, I Line My Days Along Your Weight, as a true duet: facing each other inches apart, intent upon listening. They wove together archaic instruments – baritone acoustic, tricone resonator, golden-era flattop, space-age lap steel, upright piano, and hundred-year-old mandolin – into a new and vibrant third voice. All the songs were recorded live to two-inch analog tape, the studio equivalent of tightrope-walking without a net. Mark and Mary later added minimal touches of lap steel, piano, and electric guitar, but essent… Read more

*Ships Friday* Mr. Oizo cuts loose on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label in his first solo LP since 2011's 'Stade 2'. Now an LA resident, Oizo seems perfectly placed to show America how EDM should really be done, contextualising current production palettes with strong elements of old skool electro alloyed to fierce saw-tooth synthlines and screwed rave stabs. It all dovetails very neatly with Brainfeeder's hectic aesthetics, too, applying a freeform, jazz-funked approach that plays at odds with the surgical precision of his edits, resulting in a delirious yet disciplined party sound that straight-up k… Read more

While scarcely documented on most formats, Charlotte Moorman's cello performances, often in duo with Nam June Paik, were pivotal to the recognition and development of avant-garde art and music during her lifetime, 1933-1991, from setting up the Annual Avant Garde Festival of New York, to her work intersecting the fluxus movement, sexual politics and experimental music.

In fact, the latter half of that statement isn't fantasy; Benant and Earl do feature, but the rest is all Lee Bannon working out his dreadest '90s demons with hard-cut fusions of rugged hip hop, warehouse-bashing tech-step and rolling, swinging, darkside garage-techno mutations.
