STEFAN SMITH (2X12 INCH GATEFOLD LP)
2x12" Vinyl D Pre sale
stefan smith has channeled an elevated reverence for process, texture and synth-extrapolation with the forthcoming release of his self-titled lp on the sapiens imprint. a relative new-comer to the land of rapid fire releases and dance floor formulae, smith is deeply steeped in the art of music creation, performance and theory. as a graduate of mills college’s revered music department, smith’s prosaic understanding of music partially explains his migration to sapiens, a label headquartered in paris, france, which, under the direction of techno luminary, agoria, has been expanding the realm of possibility for what a techno label can become. collaborating with musicians, visual artists, film directors, shamans and sound designers, the young sapiens platform releases may include “political speeches, radio hits, dance floor tunes, sensorial or cognitive music or a gentle computer virus-. smith’s lp contribution will definitely fall on the more delicious end of this spectrum, having woven a synth-lovers dream tapestry. ? the nine tracks composing the album, “stefan smith-, draw the listener in on a river of oscillators, which push just past the banks of perceptible sound with with flawless production and loving sound treatment. the idea behind the album is very raw and organic. stefan smith focuses on atmosphere, mood, tones, and frequencies, rather than melodies. his productions are a response to the subliminal, and about feeling. this album came together from a natural flow of working with computers and synthesisers, and also from the musical connection fostered sebastien devaud (agoria)
