Excavated Tapes 1992-1999 (Vol. 2)

Astro:Dynamics

Cat. Number: ADCASS13

Best Available Technology reveals another batch of blunted deconstructions with 'Excavated Tapes 1992 - 1999 (Vol.2)' via Astro:Dynamics. Following on from BNJMN's more recent deconstructions and outings for Left Blank and Styles Upon Styles, it sounds out ten cryptically crushed and frayed off-beats and ambient enigmas operating in their very own time-and-place quite unlike most else out there. They range from unstable equations such as the ghostly, fragmented 'Sncs9' thru to recursive lower case shoegaze styles in its longest piece, the five minute 'Si… Read more

DEMONSTRATION SYNTHESIS & M. SALACIAK

DS16

ENTR'ACTE

Format_dot_stuffCassette // £6.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: E184

**Edition of 80 copies** The blissed ambience of 'DS16' marks one of the first complete transmissions from a new studio operating outta Montreal, Canada. Headed up by studio owner Matthew Salaciak, Demonstration Synthesis gives voice to his anything-goes studio expressions, tending toward a mixture of genteel techno patter and frothy ambient lather very much in tune with Vancouver's Mood Hut Gang from the other end of Canada. Matthew also makes purer, techno-faced gear as Variant, but reserves this tape for more fanciful ideas, from marbled house chords and puttering machine pulses to lushly soured electronica tones and lilting digi-dub-tronica.

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: SLP010

**Two-part 11 x 11" print and download plus interview cassette** "Brittle Love is a suite of songs scratched together from the teary depths of a computerised pop dream. From a few raggedy Technicolor melodies bloom luscious strings, xylophones, and drum machines. But something’s not quite right: you can almost hear the sticky-tape holding together the synthesisers, the vocals are forever slipping away from the beat. This is pin-point electronic music put together with Early Learning Centre scissors, a pot of PVA glue, and a page of Lonely Hearts classifieds ripped from a regional newspaper. J… Read more
