DUE TO NEUTON’s CLOSE & MANY RESULTING ISSUES – AD 004 WAS FINALLY RELEASED ON FRIDAY FEBRUARY 13th 2009 – 2 MONTHS AFTER ITS ANNOUNCED RELEASE DATE – IT IS LIMITED to 150 COPIES WITH A VERY SPECIAL SLEEVE DESIGNED BY FASE
The Buenos Aires-bred audio-visual quartet Fase Miusic Sender strike back with fierce power, possibly inspired by their recent stint in the United States: the promising AIRDROP talents toured various states, roaming the reduced outskirts of offshore electronics and undoubtedly turning on hundreds of people who thought that all is lost! After delivering the smashing “Tres EP”, AIRDROP’s groundbreaking second digital release (featuring a remix by Sr. Replicante), the micromalic underground beast that is Fase Miusic Sender has more impact than ever, and it’s down to its driving forces to push things forward.
“I Swim Slow” is possibly the result of taking a bath in deep rhythms that bang so syrupy that the dive feels more like a hump. But: watch out! Despite shuffling reluctantly the stream takes you and pulls you into a dark abyss constructed out of evil chords that create a fierce little paranoia. You can’t escape.
Even more mind-bending: Dilo’s Remix. The well-known, producer and Igloo label boss manages to capture mind and body with the steady rhythm only to confuse them with his highly aural sounds that make it impossible not to get totally sucked up by the weirdness of the music.
“Chacarita Ho” is a creepy creature strutting the tree walled walk ways near the cemetery looking for her seedy clientele. Watch out she does not empty out your pockets while she gives you that free instand climax blow job.
To top things off, the release comes with a digital-only bonus track called “I Swim Back” that sees the swirling structures reverses and chewed up focusing on the sheer power of the elements – huge reverbs and metallic clicks – making it an extremely powerful monster of a track that is immensely compelling.
Again, the wicked world of Fase where music, painting, street art and motion graphics all warp into one is like an entire universe consisting of organically evolving structures, adapting to the evolution of music. Music that’s creating visuals, visuals creating music… and music that is creating a brainstorm. You have been warned…
