the new york downtown producer/composer returns with his first new album in 3 years!
eighteen: the year of release, 2018. eighteen: the age at which i first used a synthesizer. in creating eighteen i worked independently in the studio, initially building up tracks with synthesizers and found sounds recorded in my daily comings and goings. after working with the tracks over a period of months, i shared them with a few musicians, who added their own instrumental layers. though working independently, we all shared a similar working process: working in our personal recording spaces, as opposed to larger recording studios.
around was the first song from same language different worlds that everybody heard. tim burgess had sent a home made cd-r to lauren laverne as soon as the record was completed and she texted asking if a song could be featured on the 6music show that morning. peter gordon and tim had spent the precious few months crafting the album in new york, norfolk & manchester - tim sent the song to pete kember and proclaimed the resultant remix as one of the best tracks i ve ever had the pleasure of being involved with.
with additional remixes by nik void, david cunningham and jd twitch (optimo), its a perfect vinyl release to celebrate the tenth rsd.

this ridiculously soulful summer-house ep is the first installment by peter on big bait since 2015. we baked the essence of 3 years of studio work on 12″, vinyl. amongst two brilliant solo tracks, peter brought in two coops with some exclitingly interesting producers: -arpeggio funk- is the first co-production by the columbian shooting star felipe gordon with big bait label boss peter clamat. the guys met up on soundcloud and immediately started working out some tunes together. -she hates getting photos- and -tanzflächengebet- are solo productions by mr. clamat. outstanding, colorful, perfect work as usual. last but not least track no. four is the uplifting, 90 s flavored remix of an unpublished clamat-gem by ugly drums and chesney. the two guys are old-stagers of the german house culture and well known for their releases on kalakutta soul, ava, quintessentials etc.
bruno pronsatos debut album as archangel, the bedroom slant, released in 2014, saw the producer update the style he has developed over the last decade on labels such as hello?repeat, perlon, dfa and thesongsays, and in the process, manifesting his love of pop, rock and post-punk in his music for the first time. on this ep, selected tracks from the debut album are reworked by dean blunt, peter gordon & oliver coates. the vinyl release includes a downloadcode.
