ABOUT EVIAN CHRIST
The tail end of 2011 saw the emergence of material from a producer known only as Evian Christ with oblique YouTube videos accompanying music which seemed to occupy its own particular twilit corner of the musical landscape – poised somewhere at the crossroads between freaked, haunted ambience and sparse, twisted R&B. Signing shortly after to Tri Angle, Evian Christ (aka 22 year old Merseyside resident Joshua Leary) released a free mixtape, “Kings and Them” available for free download here, collating his 8 tracks to date, and heralding the arrival of a truly exciting new talent in the process.

In June 2012 a limited edition 12” collecting together four tracks from “Kings and Them” in new and remastered form, became the first proper physical release from Evian Christ. Over the span of these 4 tracks, the breadth of his unique vision is just beginning to be explored.

Evian’s most recent work can be hear on Kanye West’s critically acclaimed ‘Yeezus’ album (produced the track “I’m In It”).


ABOUT VESSEL
In the past trying to pin down Vessel’s constantly evolving sound has never been an easy task, and with the release of his debut album it’s become a whole lot harder. In the past 12 months Vessel, aka, 22 year old Sebastian Gainsborough, has been introducing people to his sound via a series of 12” releases on a number of forward thinking, underground labels with each release confounding the expectations of those trying to get a grasp on what exactly he was doing. Order Of Noise is the culmination of his first exploratory steps as an artist, and the album Tri Angle Record’s believed Vessel was building up to. It signals the arrival of an innovative and intensely unique, young, electronic producer who has developed a sound that still has the potential to confuse and confound, but one that is now identifiable as being very much his own.

Using techno and house as a jumping off point Vessel manages to twist these things into something unconventional and alien, often creating music that sounds as if it’s rhythmically out of control when in fact it’s all tightly controlled chaos. It’s a testament to Vessel’s talent how he manages to rein all his ideas and sounds in with so much thoughtful precision. Veering from the spaced out, futuristic dub sounds of ‘Stillborn Dub’, to the pulsating mystical ambience of ‘Aries’, through to tracks like ‘Lache’ and ‘Court Of Lions’ which seem to invert the traditional notions of what a club track should be, Order Of Noise is an album saturated in ideas that manages to stand out as a wholly coherent statement of intent for the future.


ABOUT HUERCO S.
The Kansas City artist’s lo-fi transmissions have so far seen release on labels like Wicked Bass, Future Times and Opal Tapes—he was also responsible for the first record on Anthony Naples’ Proibito label, which was produced under the name Royal Crown Of Sweden. An RA review of his recent Apheleia’s Theme EP said that Huerco S’s “brand of soporific dub-house perfectly balances groove and dysfunction, clarity and concealment.” A press release cites “the ancient Native American mound city of Cahokia” as an influence for Colonial Patterns, alongside the work of artists like William Basinksi, Theo Parrish and Jon Hassell.

Huerco S. will release his debut full-length Colonial Patterns on September 24th via the Software imprint.
