“A masterful exercise in pure, unfettered musical collaboration…beguiling Portishead-meets-Flying Lotus-meets-Twin Peaks soundscapes” Manchester Evening News, Oct 2011
The Electronic Exchange return with a pair of brand new tunes, showcasing a more robust and confidently original sound, backed with three hot remixes from two talented young UK producers.
Following the success of last year’s debut EP, inter-european duo The Electronic Exchange have cooked up a pair of new tunes for Second Shift, backed up by outstanding remixes from Manc beatsmith Neko Neko and Brighton-based synth botherer Pause.
To celebrate the release, Najia and Tullis have also made a ‘home video’ for new EP track Shapeshifter. Enjoy!
Concrete Moniker presents the debut album from Manchester-based electronic improviser and producer, Richard Knight. Electronic gamelan explorations, abstracted minimal techno, ambient drones & sub-bass rumblings are all filtered and warped into Knight’s palette. The result is something quite arresting, and totally unique.
Back in September, two sets of Moniker label mates jumped into someone’s Dad’s Ford Galaxy and headed out on the road. The Electronic Exchange and newly-merged improv super-group cottrell/findlay_hunter_rennie had a serious amount of fun, and no-one lost any limbs. Luckily for us, Jacob Russell was on hand to catch some wonderful shots.
Both these groups are either currently recordings or making plans for sessions and releases on Moniker in 2011. It’d be nice to see ‘em hit the road together again, wouldn’t it?
