Top Doctor : Some odd graffiti I saw [self released]

“hey

here are my latest soundwaves

it has been inspired bymy own life (on the planet)/how to make the world a better place using the advancement in technology, orwell, adbusting/street art/culture jamming/graffiti/ug hip hop, post-dubstep/bass/90’s warp recordings, organic/analog/lo-fi sound/80’s retro stuff, japanese ideas and concepts like wabi sabi and ma, internet memes/linguistics/internet lingo, subtle humour in art/hidden meaning/riddles/anonymity, field recording/nature/soundscape composition, the now, the sublime/the subconscious/associations, other people and love.

can art be used to change the world into better? i’m slightly worried about the situation right now.

i have been working on these tracks on and off for a long time. if you like it, you should contact me and maybe we can think of a way to work together…or maybe if you know someone you think might like it, share it to them?

use headphones if possible

All the best/enjoy/peace/ yours,
Fake doctor

Textural Being : The Sixth Gap [BC30]

Textural Being is a name that many of you should know by now, if you’ve been keeping up with who’s who in the current dub techno scene. Having released several fantastic works on labels such as Cold Tear, Deep In Dub, Energostatic, ZeECc, Auditory Cortex and Cold Fiction, among others, Mr. Being is now moving on from the moniker, transitioning over to a new project simply called aspect. Thus, The Sixth Gap is (in our humble opinion) not only one of his best excursions to date, but also one hell of an album to close the book on the Textural Being name.

The music is deep, moody and evocative of its namesake with swirling soft textures in spades. Groovy bass drums anchor the rhythm in a fog of floaty chords, their constant thumping a ghost of some long-forgotten deep house memory. What Textural Being evokes so well here is an air of familiarity while simultaneously sounding fresh and interesting. In a genre that is no doubt overflowing with homogeneity and monochrome, The Sixth Gap offers a vibrant atmosphere of just what good dub techno could and should be. Backed by a stellar remix cast of Axs, Ohrwert, Yan Olsen and Coppice Halifax, and limited to just 50 CD-Rs!”
