ive never met rod modell (deepchord) in person. but we have met through music. he found an obscure cassette of chi music (from 86). sent it to astral industries and paved the way for the release (30 years later) of the original recordings in 2016. since then. weve exchanged ideas and good music. i sent rod a preview of the kallikatsou recordings - he really liked it - and here came the idea for a remix of lanterns. i started working on some random. lo-fi samples from youtube. using audacity. perhaps the simplest way of producing loops and samples. it’s the only computer based system that feels like the tape recorders i used to work with. i sent the first sketches to rod on facebook. but they ended up in the wrong inbox. i forgot about them. but months later he came back saying he loved them. i decided to go back to working on them. maintaining the lo-fi approach. i began manipulating the samples: time-stretching. tempo and pitch-shifting. mixing different layers and adding old-school monophonic old speaker effects. delays and loops. i used a few field recordings. voices and samples from my early ambient cassettes. and they matched. ario from astral industries got involved and the experiment turned into a plan a vinyl release - red lantern at the kallkatsou.
hanyo van oosterom lived in the small cave of the kallikatsou in the early eighties. finding inspiration there for the chi project (1983-1986). from the nineties to 2006 he created drones. loops. samples and soundscapes. traveling numerous times annually back and forth to the kallikatsou for fine-tuning. with the original recordings and bamboo recordings. both strongly connected to the kallikatsou. creating the perfect timeframe. “the circle is closed. together these recordings reflect and express the different aspects of the experience. a trilogy of random dream-catching over 30 years.”
about the bamboo recordings: jacobus derwort started exploring sonic soundscapes listening to his short-wave world receiver at the age of 12. there he would hear music from africa. china. japan. indonesia. south america and beyond. he started playing guitar. piano. percussion and saxophone. he met hanyo van oosterom in 1978 and they started the legendary cult rock band. the jones . derwort was playing the sax. van oosterom the drums. they started conducting sound experiments in hanyo’s small cellar in the dutch village of krimpen aan den ijssel. in the early eighties they made their first cassette. the kallikatsou . hanyo started the ambient collective chi in 1983. jacobus was the first musician to join chi. together. they went to the magic rock “the kallikatsou” on the island of patmos. greece. here. hanyo had stayed for months in a cave for some deep soul-searching. he heard the sound of chi in the silence of the night like a message from out of space. being together at the kallikatsou they shaped the foundation of chi. making handmade flutes from local bamboo and conducting field recordings of water. crickets. owls. goats. wind. etc...

non worldwide co-founder chino amobi makes his vinyl debut with the soundtrack to choreographer ligia lewis’ minor matter. a performance piece that deftly articulates an argument for minoritarian politics. most of the material is newly commissioned but one of the tracks. ‘locus of control’. is lifted from amobi’s provocative airport music for queer black and brown folk album. in which he follows brian eno in inducing the atmosphere of an airport terminal. but through the eyes of a black man and with 2016 realism. it’s a different story. where eno invites lullaby. chino unshackles nightmare

karen gwyer returns to cement her reputation as one of the most individual and daring voices in dance music with rembo . her first full lp for don t be afraid. following a debut on the label in late 2016 with the prophase anaphase metaphase telophase ep. reflecting the sheer energy of gwyer s improvised. undulating and unpredictable live shows. rembo captures gwyer in her element as a techno producer not afraid to smudge both the physical and emotional edges of what we may have come to expect in the club. live performance is where gwyer s ideas come into gradual but vivid fruition. with tracks often evolving over -five or six shows- before reaching the studio. here. gwyer endeavours to capture the same transcendent energy that has seen her enrapture audiences at international events such as mutek and unsound. and in support of contemporaries such as laurel halo. kassem mosse and factory floor. throughout rembo . dozens of shows and endless stolen studio hours have informed 38 minutes of uncompromising body music. rembo is a record that calls firmly to the night. an album to transport both artist and listener to dark. sweaty rooms. to shared escapism and unexpected moments of electronic transcendence. from the first note forward. on record and in the club. karen gwyer is an artist in total control. no matter where she ends up taking us

its all too easy for nostalgia to tip into something negative. at its best its a celebration of the best the past has to offer while putting it into a contemporary context. at its worst its moaning that things arent as good as they used to be. hercules & love affair have always been firmly in the first category. main man andy butler takes classic house and disco sounds and uses them to craft dance music that has one foot in the past. the other cutting a rug on dancefloors right now. its a well-judged and expertly executed balance.
