columbus, ohio may not be spoken of in the same glowing terms as detroit when it comes to 90s techno from the mid-west. however, the columbus-based 21/22 corp label was responsible for some of future primitive s favourite techno from this era. we ve tracked down the multi-genre president and production manager behind 21/22 corp, charles noel, for our next release. formed of two exclusive productions, this archetype 12- is the essence of techno at its most individual.
after rumors have started of re-pressing the much requested and super rarely le nid d oiseau ep from the year 2003, charles noel and the label decided to go rather for an all new 12-. the ep contains 4 unreleased eclectic techno tracks dated back to the time of the predecessor. charles noel aka archetype is definitively a wizard behind the machines, creating such an awesome and impressive atmosphere with not that many elements
helic.al, the new label from todd sines + charles noel / archetyp, functions as an constrained exercise to break from restrictions. instead of the obvious new electronic dance music label that would be expected of these seasoned producers, helic.al turns history on its ear, resulting in collaborations new and old. the debut album from interval, featuring bassist andries boekelman, sines on vocals, guitar, synths & engineering, noel on drums and percussion, steps outside the comfort zone of endless tracks and overdubs from a digital workflow, tracked to 8-track tape, and mastered direct to lacquer by josh bonati, with no computers in between. future releases include crash course in science s michael zodorozny and todd sines as i/tmsz, soviet s amanda berkowitz and alyssa barrera as artefactos de dolor, möthersky, excepter s ssps & gramma, and is in discussion for releases from robert görl of deutsch amerikanische freundschaft, graham lewis of wire, dome and he said, and stephen mallinder of cabaret voltaire / wrangler, for a follow up to his seminal 1982 release, pow wow
