Plasma Audio are rolling this year. They’ve racked up releases from the likes of Icicle, Safire, Rido, Proxima, Cursa, Fre4knc, Kolectiv and Survey and now they’ve got a heavy remix single from the mighty Alix Perez. Sabre’s track Yoga came out on Plasma in 2014 to critical acclaim and now it’s got a whole new lease of life, courtesy of Mr. Perez, with two new versions.Both remixes have manage hold on to plenty of the original’s wonkiness. The Club Mix creeps along with an irregular pace. Buzzing synths call out and reply to each other in a conversation, which builds up an abstract sonic landscape that bulges and swells as the track continues. The Warped mix brings more space to the track’s reinterpretation resulting in a more dubbed out feel accentuating the tracks sense of pace.
This is the brand new 7" single from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. 33rpm on classic black vinyl.
In the early 1980s Ahmed Malek was already in his 50s when he discovered synthesizers and electronic music for himself and started to experiment with sounds. The result was a mixture of ambient synth music field recordings he made in Cuba and a wide variation of different sound experiments that he also presented as different avanguarde music festivals in Cuba and the US. None of it was ever released but we got a huge box of master tapes from his family and were happy to present this different side of Ahmed Maleks music. It was compiled and co-produced by Flako a fan of early electronic and synth music. This is not a remix album though Flakos aim was to create an album out of 2 hours of material that sounds like it might have if Mr. Malek would have finished it himself before of his death. Fully approved and licensed from the artists family. The album comes with an informative booklet with liner notes an interview with Flako regarding his approach towards the production and unseen photos. We will also release a third album by Ahmed Malek which will be more in the vein again of the music he is known for and this album will also be previously unreleased.
