“this album contains songs created with polyend tracker as the main sequencer, or the ‘brain’. tracker friends: emu e5000 ultra, ableton live, akai s3000xl, access virus ti2, u-he zebra2, pioneer sp16.
this album is constantly evolving and gaining complexity… i’ll be adding new tracks as they are finished.”
“With ODrex Trip 040 we bring you an album from Wet Basement titled Neon City. All productions are created with a modular system as jam recordings. Wet Basement energetically, gracefully and dynamically explores an audio modular blend of dub techno, acid house and electro. His personalized sound and setup brings a special touch to his work. The album also includes a 16 minute Endless Streets remix from Twin Peetz of Neon City. Enjoy the lights of the Neon City.”
“With ODrex Trip 039 we bring a collaboration project between Shebuzzz and Heavenchord called Magnolia, with guest appearences from Sotvorishi & DubRaJah. Variations of Magnolia explore a dub techno dancefloor feel, with deep grooves and minimal rythms. The 4 other tracks explore different types of sounds created by the colab and friends.
Enjoy the blooming Magnolia of sounds.”
as a child, i maintained an irrational hatred of fungi. i didn’t like the way the ones that grew in my backyard crumbled when i gripped them in my tiny fists. i didn’t like the way the ones i was fed tasted. they contained traits of both meat and vegetables while still remaining a third entity. they were difficult for me to place. they disrupted the binary narrative of nature i was taught, one of fauna’s perpetual domination over his flora.
these qualities are the things i currently value most in fungi. i won’t call them a disruptive force because man’s categories are subordinate to them and not the other way around. the surface is one part of earth. below us is an infinitely large civilization ruled by worms and fungi. they expand and intermingle. each fungi is a system of references to itself. they have flesh, but they aren’t meaty.
it is not enough to give these things jobs, houses, and clothes. our respect towards flora only extends as far as we are able to enjoy its forests and rivers. there will never be a reserved space specifically dedicated to fungi growth in america comparable to its national parks because it would be inhospitable to humans.
it is not the fault of the fungi that it oozes when i crush it. it is not the fault of the fungi that it is unappetizing. there is no fault. there’s only me in my backyard.”
“Over the last few years, Belfast-based trio Electric Octopus have emerged as something of a sonic law unto themselves. Equal parts intuitive and boundlessly inspired, their ever-changing explorations of the psychedelic unknown is something that inspired many on our scene.”
“The 130 release on insectorama. We’re celebrating this with a large dubtechno compilation. This is episode 3 of 3 with the last 20 tracks by dubtechno artists from all over the world. Thank you very much to all the artists who make this compilation something very special with their track. 145 minutes full of echoes and delays that will take you on a journey into the deepest dub valleys. Relax and enjoy these timeless tracks suitable for the cold season.”
“Slapstick, spectacle, riot, downhill, electro-bruzze, party, always firmly on. That’s how we imagine the Johnnyverse, to which For Example John invites us here. A classic second album, more of everything we love, one step further, everything a bit bigger and wilder, the next level. That’s the way we want it. All our expectations are satisfied. Hell Yeah.”
