DESCRIPTION
 

For its 6th release, Bjarki and Johnny Chrome Silver’s bbbbbb Records welcome new signing EOD (aka Stian Gjevik) to their unholy alliance with his 'Swurlk EP'. The Norwegian born, strictly analog producer takes the label off-roading with four outstanding productions channeling ambient, electro and hard bloody techno.

Having released on imprints including Rephlex and WeMe Records, it was actually on Soundcloud that Bjarki discovered EOD’s music. After getting in touch, the scale of his work emerged as gigabytes of unheard music dating back to 2002 were exchanged, all of which was made without the use of a PC - an approach which speaks for itself through his instinctive, playful melodies.

'Swurlk EP' boasts an impeccable sense of arrangement, more like that of a composer, and even more impressive considering the absence of any computer. The title track opens with a velvety smooth synth melody building with bass textures. ‘Evenhark’ uses a broken beat framework to carry floating harmonies. ‘Swarm’ uses layer upon layer of stuttered percussion to build into a relentless techno cut. ‘ELCASET_TESTGROOVE’ pairs catchy, interacting melodies with pensive harmonies.

‘Swurlk EP’ is a must listen for fans of melodic electro and an exciting move from a label that continues to challenge all our fucking expectations
