new london based electronic music label khemia records announces its first split release vinyl ep. the curatorial agenda for the label retrospectively reflects the programming of the kaos london events.
sometimes you need rough cuts to heal the deep wounds. bronze teeth take a bite with three throbbing tracks that will make your arteries start to squeeze! mayonaise ep is filled with analog machine madness tweaked to ones taste and comes in a surgical inner sleeve by bakk dental care.
* to celebrate the second anniversary of khemia records we are pleased to welcome back in aeternam vale. the legendary french artist who inaugurated the imprint on a split ep with bronze teeth in march 2016. * this is the first single-artist ep produced by the label. initiating a new series that will run parallel to the v/a editions. * the tracks ‘dave’ and ‘circles’ form an elliptical conundrum composed of various references including kubrick’s alchemical allegory 2001 a space odyssey. (sampled in french) with it’s existential narrative of a schizophrenic artificial intelligence lurking in the shadows. the deus ex machina wondering if mankind is still useful to machines. or perhaps even dangerous to them? the infamous seveso chemical disaster at the pharmaceutical laboratory icmesa caused by human error. the glowing blood-red sphere of hal 9000. the all-seeing eye of the sentient super-computer and the circular composition of the toxic compound 18.104.22.168 tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (tcdd). released into the atmosphere at seveso. with this cryptic feedback loop. laurent prot is suggesting that the new technologies we are developing now. for use in our near future could result in catastrophe when human control is lost to the self-learning of ai. the homicidal consequences of a machine take-over find visual form in the bleak. dystopian aesthetic of evelyn bencicova’s cover artwork.
“nurse surgeon nurse” is the followup to september’s “your body is my body” - the debut for both the suspended in gaffa band and the label. on this remix package we’ve enlisted some of most interesting producers on the outskirts of club music.
laid down with authority by l/f/d/m are four no nonsense cuts blasting fresh air into that perennially en vogue phenomenon known as acid house. after stunning eps for glasgows prestigious optimo trax and clandestine traxx. an equally crushing full-length for kompakts ecstatic imprint. and two brain melting eps for diagonal with factory floors dominic butler as bronze teeth. it is an honor to have his sounds grace cgi with a release that sees him playing right for the heart of the dance floor.
