Low Res 023 – Adjust: Release the Sharks

12″ and mp3’s available now exclusively from Praxis from today, Sept. 27!

LOW 023: Adjust – Release The Sharks

As 2010 draws to a close, Low Res Records makes one last shot at the buzzer with a veritable milestone of mayhem, the 23rd enigma in the shape of a new and long overdue DJ Adjust record.
‘Release The Sharks’ is a four tracker of abusive speaker therapy constructed in the spirit of recreational headbanging most would call haptic technology for heshers.
Possessing the demonstrative power of potential that pokes at the ear pupils, the new Adjust record is a leaning tower of rhythm inconsequentials that cast a dark shadow over the deliberate composition of controlled chaos. A study in pure acceleration from the opening track ‘Eveready/9-Lives’ and it’s nod to Frances Tipton Hunter and his black cat, to the track ‘Deux’ which draws subtle influence from early Fischkopf releases taking cues from industrial appliance rhythms that swell into monstrous episodes of hi-fidelity gate crashing.  Distorted electronic kick drums translate into rarified air violence and simultane
ously unleash the Kraken bass blasts. Zeus and his harem of honeys would be proud. A true modern Midwest exercise in reticent aggression. Varying tempos of grindfunk sonically spread over four tracks of fortified ass-kick. This is
popular music for the future prolific and stratopunk pioneers of tomorrow… delivered today.

Out exclusively through Praxis on Sept. 27 on 12″ vinyl and mp3
Out on general release through all good record stores and distros on Oct. 11!

Some news on the goings-on of Canadian based label Dross:tik Records.
Things have been a little quiet over the past year with the last release being the Cross Roads 12” in 2007 (V-Snares / Electromeca / Unitus / Cakebuilder / Belladonnakillz). Which is still available at most place – check it out!
But never fear!!! The plans are in and looking pretty good…..at least in my head it looks good. So check out the following info and keep on the lookout for these releases.

Upcoming Dross:tik Releases:

C64 – “Lowest Moments (DJ Mix CD) *Co-Release with Low Res Records

Release Date: Summer 2008
A 26 track continuous DJ mix showcasing 8 years of Detroit ground breaking label Low Res Records. Tracks from Abelcain/Davros, Venetian Snares, Igor, Kero, Adjust, Cdatakill, Ubergang, Bombadier and more span from 1998-2006.
Its an honour to put something like this together and to work with a true pioneering label such as Low Res. Detroit for life! Eminem has nothing on the white boy behind this label!

Belladonnakillz – “Sorry Try Again” (CD Album)

Release Date: Fall/Winter 2008
Perhaps you heard his debut album on Dross:tik in 2003? Or his follow up “As If” on Sublight? Either way, this will be a brand new cut with only the most original material as expected. Singing, dancing, guitar rocking, bass shaking and dance beats. The reviews in the past say it all. It’s either brilliant or a complete waste of musical work. You be the judge!

Epsilon – “Daemon Minx Thanatopsis” (CD Album)

Release Date: Fall/Winter 2008
Long time Australian producer is set to launch his first full length album since 2004. No doubt this will be highly anticipated! I met Mr. Epsilon on tour in Europe in 2007. He couldn’t stop talking about how great Australia is. Despite this, I still liked him (j/k Aussies) and Dross:tik is proud to see this release through. http://www.myspace.com/brendonepsilon

John Kameel Farah – “Title TBA” (CD Album)

Release Date: Fall/Winter 2008
Canadian pianist wizard crafts a composition that is both worth stroking your chin too and busting a move on the dance floor. Melodies composed with his state of the art Rhodes Fender piano provide a deep warmth that wraps around the onslaught of beats and breaks. His live performances are nothing short of brilliant. We are very proud to capture this energy and bring it to you on one of those compact disc things that seem to be going out of style.

New Vinyl Release

Release Date: Fall 2008
It will certainly include Devnulls “Shards of Rhythm” and some other goodies yet to determined. Its been a while for that Devnull track. The original plan doesn’t look like its gonna happen, but a new super awesome, “Grooverider wished he had done it before he got pinched” plan will bring it to light!

Dross:tik Digital
Yes, we are adding a new face to the label through that cutting edge technology of DIGITAL. Digital only releases will start sometime soon….maybe.
Stupid Question #1: “But Mr. c64, does this mean you are abandoning vinyl????”
C64: “Shut up Timmy, it certainly does not!!”
But we’ve been getting lots of good demos over the years, more so than I can possibly release, so the digital portion will get those tracks out!

Other possibly interesting news:

C64 – New DJ mix for Peace Off Website
Yes! Working on a brand new studio DJ mix that should soon be available from Peace Off in their Free Download section.

C64 back on Tour in Europe October / November 2008
You think a broken arm and surgery can keep me down? No way. But that’s exactly what happened this past January. It’s good to be back in the game though!

:.::BreakCore::.:.

Breakcore is a loosely defined electronic music style that brings together elements of jungle, hardcore techno and rhythmic noise, into a breakbeat-oriented sound that encourages speed, complexity, and maximum sonic density.

The style began to emerge at the peak of rave in years of 1993–1994. In Berlin and Cologne, the Bass Terror Crew provided a harder version of breakbeat by playing records on 45rpm instead of the intended 33rpm. At the same time, former hardcore techno DJ Tanith started a series of parties with ‘breakcore’ in bold fat letters on the flyer.

As hardcore techno artists were feeling a staleness in the Roland TR-909 and Roland TB-303 drum machine-based sounds, the commercial “childish” elements in Dutch gabber and the overall assaults of speedcore began to be adapted. Others felt an urge to take the ideas of early 1990s jungle and acid one step further. Artists began to incorporate more breakbeats (especially the Amen break), taking the conceptual extremity of hardcore and harsh industrial music and applying it to the drum and bass template. Straining out much of the “rave” influence on hardcore and adding a degree of complexity, breakcore was a more palletable genre for music fans who were turned off by the rave scene, and so there is something of a crossover audience for fans of extreme music of all types, including grindcore, harsh industrial music, noise music and “IDM”. This advance in “complexity” was made possible primarily by the proliferation of cheap computers and it is worth noting that the majority of breakcore was produced on cheap computers using free software, especially trackers.

There is no one clear point of generation, but some key locations include Berlin, South London, Newcastle, New South Wales, Rennes, France, Ghent, Belgium and the Midwestern US and Canada (including Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Winnipeg, Manitoba, greater New Brunswick, New Jersey, and Minneapolis, Minnesota). The first widely-known efforts did probably come from Force Inc./Riot Beats and Digital Hardcore Recordings. Breakcore as it is currently known has many of its origins on the internet, specifically around mailing lists like c8 and can be traced back to early efforts by the Bloody Fist camp in Australia; Ambush, Praxis, DHR, Breakcore Gives Me Wood and others in Europe; and Addict, Drop Bass, History of the Future and Low Res in the Midwestern US.

Slamming Dutch Breakcore for the Teddy Riley on crack in all of us. So-called intelligent dance music is for old ladies and paperboys, improve your groove and get this shit in your earhole QUICK. Chilly willy melodies and ice cold beats to shiver your spine armored axe, while you hack at the triggidy trolls and pillage the land with your guild of stank armored pig-grilled saxon hammers and pigtailed maiden coochie, YOU WILL NEED THIS. Phantom fresh programming and a sense of severity like no other, defile your mommas speakers the right way, DO IT WITH MEANDER ON LOW RES. Designed to play at volume levels of “11″ or greater, this is what the real shit sounds like son, take a lesson, yes, yes, y’all.
