12" Vinyl D
Contexterrior & Tuning Spork were launched in the early 2000s by Jay Haze and soon became critically acclaimed & influential, establishing - along with Perlon - the new school minimal house & techno sounds of the 00s.
As Jay moved to Peru in 2010, the labels were temporarily put on hold, but after this short hiatus, he has decided to relaunch both labels into a combined format, which will see them together under the same roof. This hybrid label is launching with catalogue number CNTX/TS 1001 and comes from London based Alex Celler, who has been collaborating with Jay & his labels since 2009. Then, confirmed releases of Signor Andreoni, Michal Ho, Kreon and of course Jay himself will follow later this year and in 2015. On the A side of this EP ‘’Kammsa'’ expands over 11 minutes and is based on a bubbling, funked up bass which mutates slowly and maintains a steady yet driving pace, accompanied with percussion and melodies, slowly escalating into a dynamic groover which quickly takes off. On the flip side ‘’Plex Astunde'’ comes strong and mysterious, with shuffling rhythms and syncopated syncopated drums, rolling along sub bass tones, forming a chuggy, sleek rhythm which leads to a melodic turn, only to descend again to glitch territory.
