ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: REC21

**Edition of 75 x C60 cassettes. Artwork by Jason Kerley** Wonderfully wayward electronic vectors from Yaaard on the brilliant Reckno label. Dubbed by the label, "..an act of hero worship/destruction salvaged from the hard drive of a dead computer, a past thought lost now preserved on magnetic tape", Yaaard's 4th tape for the label revolves 14 pieces veering from blunted groovebox workouts reminding of Dro Carey thru to Ecco Jam-style ambient beatmulch on 'Shook Ones' with Street Thunder, via icy R&B introspection reminding of FKA Twigs in 'Tell Me' featuring Kinlaw, and the blistered shoegaze lurch of 'Infinite Love'.

**Edition of 60** Killer, fugged-up transmission from Entr'acte's latest pick-up, Owen McLean. Working in broken ground between Hospital Productions' Vatican Shadow or Alberich and the decayed urban structures of Actress, 'Ghost Selector' is a tortuous midnight excursion powered by bombed out beats thru crumbling concrète cyberpunk zones and those spaces where malign imaginations run amok.

The two recordings, thought lost for years and now rescued by Snug Life, document Kirkegaard's matching the resonant frequencies of the venue, NS16, to make the space itself part of the performance, in line with his artistic praxis dealing with acoustic phenomena and "secret sounds" at the threshold of human hearing perception.
