Fragment Factory, GER
Two of the rather on the spot names in the current European tape-mangler scene team up for their first and long overdue joint release.
Berlin based Krube. returns home after his very first solo cassette "Vom Unerträglichen" (Fragment Factory, 2011) and takes his crude and crippled 21st century musique concrète to the next level. In his 20 minutes piece, K. manages to combine the raw and dirty nature of his earlier noise based concrete/tapemusic with a great sensitivity and open-mindedness to modern compositional techniques and tactics.
Alongside of Sewer Election, Gothenburg's Arv&Miljö has become the epitome of a unique sound and spirit in the South Swedish sub-underground, which evolved during the past 10 or so years. In "Okänd Strand" A&M extracts the very essence of Peter Jefferies' "On an Unknown Beach", leaving his distinctive thumbprint on a beautiful and deeply melancholic classic.
High-grade C-40 chrome cassettes.
Edition of 100 copies.
