'Sleepers EP1' is here. I've been looking forward to this EP since I heard it was in the works a few months back. Pete Sasqwax, formerly known as WaxFactor, has formatted this EP like a 12", It picks up where Sci Fu left off. Highly Recommended . It's name your price on Bandcamp. There are extras for people that pay/donate for the album.
These 9 tracks represent a significant period of time and span from the period between releasing the 'Sci-Fu' album (under the name Waxfactor on Needlework Records) and 2013. During that period I produced and recorded hours and hours of music - none of which I ever really did much with. I was like the proverbial painter who can never put down their brush - constantly adding and touching up here and there - never satisfied.
Towards the end of 2012 I began to realise the absurdity of never releasing any of the things I had been making and started trying to put together an LP. The process of cutting down hours and hours worth of music to a single CDs worth of tracks seemed impossible and whilst I'd managed to put together a pretty comprehensive list of the tracks I wanted to include, I could never get them to quite sit together properly. Ironically, it was only when I made the decision to view the release as an EP - like the Gameface 12" I did as my first release for Needlework - that things really started to come together properly. Whilst I knew I wasn't likely to be pressing up 12"s of the EP, I imposed the same restrictions on myself as a vinyl release would have made necessary: 28 minutes in total with a maximum of 14 minutes per side.
Fabot's latest release, the 'Brain Fish' EP is here. It comes with some bonus scratch tools based on sounds from the album. Also check out Time Collapse that he released in January.
I came across Dj Argub's 2011 EP, 'Vinyl Obscura', while checking out tracks on my Sound Cloud Turntablism Group(Check it out if you haven't already). Vinyl Obscura (Dj Argub) is a Turntablist & Producer from Istanbul, Turkey. If you are digging this like I am, be sure to check the links below for more of his tunes.
The Modulators are Dj Eprom, Dj Ben, Dj Krotki. Insert Coin is 15 tracks of beats, samples & scratches. The overall sound of the album is quite nice. Highly Recommended.
The album has two CDs one with the album and one with the instrumentals. You can order from the Asfalt Records Shop. Its a bit tricky since the website is in Polish, but Google Translate helps out.
