Deconstructed and reconstructed techno from the bold artist collective.
Released via Temple's label/collective Noise Manifesto, the 'Decon/Recon #1' EP features four tracks all made in a very non-traditional manner: each of the artists supplies some sounds for a piece of electronic music, and each of the artists makes a track from the final pool of sounds. Importantly, all four artists are credited collectively on the release, a move which both eliminates any connotations of seeing a single artist's name, yet also avoids falling into bullshit ~anonymous artist~ cliches.
Here's the EP's first track, a very eccentric piece of dance music that feels a bit impLOG, a bit James White, a bit Smith N Hack. It's also a bit good, and the first we've heard from Oni Ayhun (who, it's generally agreed, is probably Olof Dreijer of The Knife) in a few years.
