the hidden meaning of number 13 is change, the death of something and its rebirth. this is the idea behind gabriel dor & bordoys new album 13, which is meant to be a turning point on their career. influenced by old school techno but also by modern sounds, after 6 years of production partnership, theyve decided to release their first entirely unpublished lp. the album, made out of 13 cuts, starts with a dark intro that paves the way into a forceful kind of techno, followed by vintage sounds with gloomy touches and sometimes even emotional ones. they have used many instruments and samples discovered along the way on this composition process, plus lots of others found in the previous years. the sounds put together on this album have been carefully picked to preserve their uniqueness, while trying to walk on a different path.
nice price - all tracks written and recorded by gordon sharp and matt kinnison between 2006–2011 at roi vert, okamoto (japan), 13th floor and space eko (london), southend (essex)... mastered at piethopraxis, june 2011. cut by rashad becker at dubplates & mastering, berlin, june 2011. hold everything dear is the third instalment in the new cindytalk sound which started with 2007s the crackle of my soul, and then last years up here in the clouds. its the first in the trilogy to feature musicians other than gordon sharp namely the late matt kinnison, to whom the album is dedicated. inspired by the john berger book of the same name, this latest release is whole new set of parameters which push the sound on the previous two works to an extreme point of abstraction, and in some places near silent passages and haunted melodic segments. and what a mysterious journey this ends up being with increased use of piano and found/field recordings giving all the tracks a blurry soundtrack appeal to the point where the definitions between the tracks are no longer clearly defined. it harks back to the odder parts of in this world and the wind is strong albums from the early 1990s

previously half of pseudo-kitsch acid-electro force light year, and now gone solo, mikey melas aka jensen interceptor joins the binary cataloguing cpu with a perfectly formed electro cut. any artist who samples ghost in the shell, arguably one of the greatest anime films of all time, are all right by us. mikey does so to great effect on the big beat / trip hop tempo model 2029 , which sits alongside three unrelenting electro bass bin destroyers. mactavis being the toughest cut, utilising a fierce driving 808 with a robotic bassline interjecting throughout. electro is often overlooked for the club but it s obvious this e.p. was designed from the ground up to smash a big room. jensen interceptor m e.p. limited edition (300 copies worldwide) 12inch vinyl in shrink-wrapped printed sleeve with paper inner. includes microbial, minor arc, mactavis and model 2029.
