SPONGEMAGNET - BEST OFF [AOU012]
Released on April 29th - Listen/Order/Download at
Spongemagnet is a trosmocosmic beat species hailing from the grey hills of Saint Gilles and the blue creeks of Gingelom. Under the influence of tasty cheese, 80's sci-fi movies, local beers & sunglasses, Bob & Ric joined forces to create the ultimate sound palette. Their exploits resulted in a new sound called "Gimp": which could basicly contain any theme. Whether it be disco, psych, bollywood or even a retrofuturistic trap scene; Gimp's got it all covered.
A lot of the outcome is depending on the consumed beer: there was a dark, malty period (influenced by Stout beers), a fresh spring period with more IPA hoppy flavoured liquids and even an xmas phase where they poured nothing but pungent christmasbeers. The mixture of hard & software, classic Roland and Korg synths, midi keys and pads are just a minor detail in the creative process.
More faux pas went down when the Spongemagnet crew joined Caoutchou's rubber tour caravan around Eastern Europe. This is where the idea grew for a furthur collaboration. So finally, after releasing the well acclaimed 'Release the gimp' on the prestigious Th!n Consolation label, the Spongemagnet pack is back with a greatest hit tape called 'BEST OFF'! The partners in chrome dug deep into their machines to compile a 30 minute epic trip to Spongeland where everything is possible and where even you can be a *star*.
Both cassette & VHS comes with beautiful hand crafted artwork by Kamargø. Visual imagery is provided by VJ/shaman Jaak De Digitale. The mastering and tape recording was done by AOU co-founder Jonas Uytdenhouwen.
The handnumbered tape is limited to 50 pieces! The VHS tape is limited to a measly 10 copies... so be quick!
