WetYourSelf! Recordings introduces WYS008
Following their live debut in fabric’s esteemed room one, WetYourSelf! resident Peter Pixzel delivers his second collaborative effort with producer August Jakobsen. It will be the pair’s vinyl debut and one the most comprehensive releases on the label so far.
‘All I Can Think About’ is an exemplary demonstration in subtle composition and refined production values. Dub tinted FM chords provide a skeletal framework in which airy examples of organic sounding percussion and studio experimentation flirt around a delicately understated soundscape. Vocals from Peter transform the track into an innovative example of the modern electronic ballad.
Marc Houle catapults the original into outer-space glacial territory, revisiting the soundworld we visited in his last album. Understated pads thaw an otherwise icy soundscape of austere vocals, metallic stabs and reverberated drums.
Kasper Bjørke delivers an upbeat rendition making use of live bass overlaid by squelchy bottom-end sounds. Undulating frequency oscillations are introduced midway sending the track into a dancing landscape of frenetic synthesiser adventures.
Welcome to WYS008!
