Vogue, energetic, prepossessed, new...that’s you. Bonaface give me ingenue. Trill, lithe, that’s what you do...baby how strong are we?
What would you say, what wouldn’t you do for the crew?

 

Pure, Beyond Reproach is the new studio album from vibrational club artist Egyptrixx. New sensations + new energy; jeep music for a saturn moon. An exercise in physical sound and granular symbolism, this record suggests a parallel between the total impact of human tendency towards absolute loyalty and an imagined, sub-threshold percussion of collisions among all the oceanic micro-plastics. 

 

The aesthetic is pacific litter clank; chill torrents and artificial triumphalism...actual glow. Repetition apes tidal energy, a reminder of the revolutionary capability of sound. splashing, pounding, dripping, phasing. Glinted piles of shatter swept back and forth - crystal ammunition // liquid contemplation. Anodyne ammo mimics the erasure of ethics via dispersion, backlit by the low key petroleum tangle of

bffs/oblivion.

CERAMIC TL

Sign of the Cross Every Mile to the Border is an album of material sound and concrete emotion - tranquil, concussive electronics.

 

Seven meditations on optimism and faith through the prism of environmental cataclysm. Euphoric and dismal; partial survival as hypercolor swirls in fuel spills - econoline psychedelia. Conflicted, synthetic celebrations of the industry of human spirit // the malevolence of the human race; faith as optimism // optimism as escape.

 

The music is glacial, brittle and incomplete - low-key grandeur. Flippant scrolling through preset menus as virtuosity and casual anthems of indifference to bounty. Digital shatter is washed out by lucid drones and again by programmed noise, a reminder that advocacy builds itself on a foundation of prophecy but  speculation can be crystallized in an instant. Dense sound mimics massive blankets of haze that clarify the primary forces: consumerism, institutional paternalism, genuine human resilience and ingenuity. Life on earth.

 

Active since 2014, Sign of the Cross Every Mile to the Border is the first official Ceramic TL release.

 

Sign of the Cross Every Mile to the Border is out now (Cassette, WAV) on Halocline Trance – Mastered by James Plotkin. Layout by Josh Voynovich. Distributed by Crosstalk International and available to purchase via Halocline Trance and fine music retailers worldwide. Press enquiries: nicolai@modernmatters.net

LIMIT

Limit is a crucially free collaboration between David Psutka (Ceramic TL, Egyptrixx) and James Connolly (Dance System, L-Vis 1990) of propulsive, ecstatic sound.

Poor in meticulousness but rich in zeal, this material is defined primarily by a champion energy; the sound of containment, a sense of the containment of sound...absolute light/beam limit. Swerving between functional, club and open formats, the most meaningful constant is a sense of relentless euphoria.

 

The music is radial and braids a casual yet grandiose spontaneity that invokes supreme monuments conceived but never built - like the Tatlin Tower and its material ambitions to bankrupt an empire...the quest for whatever.

 

This collection of seven tracks was recorded across a handful of sessions in Toronto and NYC, 2015 and includes a series of accompanying digital images from Toronto-based artist Olenka Szymonski.

 

Limit - Limit is available now via Halocline Trance - Mastered by Sam John at Precise, distributed by Crosstalk International and available to purchase from fine music retailers worldwide.
