RISE PT. 2 (PEAKING LIGHTS & SHIGETO RMXS) (COLOURED VINYL)
coloured 12" Vinyl BE13.05.15
(ltd coloured vinyl in silk screen printed sleeve) go march is a new project born out of jam sessions that have resulted in their debut single rise, an electronic, germanic-infused, post-rock screamer that is a sort of mogwai meets kraftwerk.
this is the 4th black catalogue release. >through the galaxies< was originally released on the modern underground music sampler. this version is a full release with some great remixes by both lucy from stroboscopic and shigeto from ghostly. these mixes are fantastic, and really show a nice array of sounds. i decided to add a dub version inna future reggae stylee, too. i hope you enjoy it! - monty luke
in the context of shigetos debut lp lineage, >huron river drive< functions as a respite of sorts, a brief stop on the roadside of a very personal into the past. but as this single release proves, it also stands alone as a pleasantly understated piece of electronic beauty. the track swells slowly from the simple chord sequence of the intro into a lushly textured slice of late-night atmospherics – with more than a hint of jazz to be found in the brushed percussion and quietly tinkling electronic piano – and then receding back into the same sequence as the track draws to a close.

auf >breakthrough< verschmilzt kalifornisch-inspirierter psych mit einflüssen aus aller welt. durchdrungen von ominösen und verzerrten tönen sowie entfesselten drums ist >breakthrough< vielmehr als eine sammlung von beats - hier fusionieren elektronik, psychedelic-pop, funk/soul, hip hop und dubstep zu etwas eigenständigen und aufregendem neuen. gastaufritte von gonjasufi, adrian younge, dimlite, daedelus, samiyam oder computer jay machen >breakthrough< zu einer reise der kreativen verbundenheit und einer stammes-zeremonie mit einem gefühl von gemeinschaft, welches den stellenwert der kollektiven erfahrung für the gaslamp killer wiederspiegelt. mit >breakthrough< gelingt the gaslamp killer eines der spannendsten debütalben in 2012!
