»vortices« is ueno masaaki’s first release on raster-noton, and the seventh release of the unun series.
ueno masaaki takes his musical cue from natural phenomenon and laws of nature by trying to reconstruct, not simulating them. the results are mainly rhythmical patterns that set off a chain reaction, expanding and contracting and creating new formations all the time.
the four tracks he presents on the EP are characterized by solid sound structures that appear to be very harsh and straight, sometimes even brutal, whereas the high pace even intensifies this impression. apparently repetitive at first sight, the tracks are in fact highly complex and intelligently arranged, presenting unforeseen breaks and shifts in direction.
Loops Haunt is one of the most underrated producer around. He once showed me his archive of unreleased music and it was one of the most impressive things I’ve ever heard. This live drum machine set with RY 90, DR 660, TR707 & TR 606 is just further proof.
In 1988, David Blair Stiffler risked life and limb to document under-recorded cultural groups living lives of extreme isolation in the mountainous Philippine regions of Nueva Ecija, Aurora, and Luzon. These are the fruits of that expedition.
Kepler aka ½ of Sick Girls is actually the reason why I started dj’ing, after seeing her bang out some of the most amazing music I’ve heard until that point. It was 2004, I just finished my year of Social Service and visited Berlin for the first time. I ended up by accident at some warehouse rave in Mitte and from then on nothing was the same.
Transcending the drum woven - transatlantic slave migration from Africa, this sound collage uses the legacy of the colonial sugar empire to explore a cyborgian utopia and hybridisation of race, identity, power and futurity through the narrative gateway of the modern human experiment.
