the sixth release on warsaw-based brutaż,,,, (bruitage) is not the most experimental nor the most banging record. itís not a tongue-in-cheek type of record nor a kind of commentary. itís not a wild excursion into anything nor it is a dj tool. thereís nothing futuristic nor oldschool about it. weíre from poland, after all.
we have encountered ice dog during one sunny belgrade afternoon while he was chasing what he was calling fish (actually slavic seniors transformed into dolphins and dolphin is not a fish). he might or might not told us the fore-coming story: a man complains of being hungry. all the time. dogs it seems are never hungry. so the man decides to become a dog. to be a dog one must walk on all fours. the hero decides to wear shoes on his hands only to discover that there is no hand left to tie the laces on the fourth shoe. what does a shoe-shod dog tie laces with? its mouth. organ by organ the man becomes a dog. one lace at a time his record transformed us into a new type of misunderstood creatures. most of the tracks are surprisingly fast and playable yet broken while others are groovy however noisy. i am pretty sure you havent heard anything like it before. but what do i know iím a fish.
ice dog is an alias of 33.10.3402.
cover by martyna bolanowska / kaja kukul, a mastered by tim xavier at manmade mastering.
kenk! is a story of a blossoming romance, like when decontextualised acid met with relentless tension and they hopped into a hypercube. here, carlo maria uses a pointilistic diablerie to extract a loud mixture of droney melancholy and rhythmic euphoria. after releasing a blissful record with caterina barbieri on Σ,,, (as punctum), carlo chooses the path of reduction and force. kenk! lays hold of you and makes you move⚡,,, somewhere. quickly, but with no intended direction. yes, itís made for the dancefloors - you just have to trust us on this one.
mchy i porosty land on polish label brutaz with an ep that traces a story of broken dreams, mold, dying and crippled love. sprinkled with darkness and light, this four track excursion skips through the rougher side of house, touchig on more industrial territory.
brutaz unleash their first three tracker coming from jules venturini, a continental expat supposedly having ties with a famous nunmetal band and a certain secondhand record shop. shameless melodies joined with a darker, churning grooves, pushed to the edge of with a gentle dose of distortion.
brutaz is a long-running party series held in various polish cities as well as in berlin, naively trying to join different attitudes towards sound and dance.
dravengís record is the second record released, following and contradicting a wheedling analogue roller by jules venturini, an ep for anyone who has a heart. however, after a brief period of research and self-experimenation, weíre sure that brutaz-02 wonít help you stay sane and salubrious.
