Artist comments:
Hello you mysterious demographic of people who read about netlabel releases. This album has taken forever. I write this immediately after finishing the last little solo, and I can’t rightly express the amount of relief this brings.

I wouldn’t describe this as a skill, but if I read enough old diary entries/emails/album notes I am able to reach a weird state of exponential confusion/upward spirals of wonder, and what I now know is called “Presque vu”. It sort of feels like time is closing in on itself, that linear thinking is wrong. During the making of this album I have also begun to experience this feeling with music, which isn’t very convenient. I guess that’s just what happens if you have tunes which you have been working on for so long that you have started and ended a relationship by the time you finish them. Some of these tunes started three beards ago.

If you’re a musician then you have unfinished projects lying around, don’t you? that’s just inevitable. You get used to it, they build up, you make a little list of things to finish, and try not to start anything new, but ultimately there will always be that feeling of having unfinished projects. Well, as of five minutes ago, I don’t. I finally tied everything up! After ten albums, over eighteen EPs, countless mixes as miscellaneous bits, or, 1 day 15 hours and 14 minutes of recorded music. I haven’t had this state ever before’ Of course, I have projects planned, but they are going to be much less electronic – although now I get the feeling I’ve said this all before…

Anyway, on with the words about the sounds…

The wonderful Zoe Stewart recorded some great harp for Day Before Day (which is called that because it was actually started before the tune from the Luminaries EP called “Day After Day”) but after many many tries, I couldn’t quite get it to sound right, so it is served here without harp. But you can hear a little bit of Zoe in “Kakapo”. The bass sound is a sample of a kakapo. You can hear it unaltered at the beginning, but then I go and put some jungley worbs on it. Other bird sounds heard during this tune are also the Kakapo.

Unfolding has Phillip Glass style arpeggiations with some timing experiments. Clarity 2 was made exclusively between 5 and 7am. F**king Ghastly is a drumfunk attempt that descends into brutalism. I made A Space a year ago almost to the day (I say that as if it will always be a year ago… it is now August 2011) There is then a long intro to Milky, which I made today. Milky is another drumfunk/breakcorey one and features on the compilation “Amen-tal Round 3″. Fun Track is fun. Butterfly Twat interjects some ridiculousness. I once fell asleep to the main loop of Quartz Clock Hop, and now it makes me feel a bit odd. Year By Year is a mutilated Day Before Day, made a year later, and it is like an audio-summing up of that exact feeling I was on about earlier. I made You’re A Strange Boy one night in Germany.

The Centrifuge label & agency showcase mix for Electronic Explorations.

Compiled by missaw in Berlin, June 2010.

The Centrifuge is a global artist collective interested in all forms of experimental and electronic music. It was formed in early 2007 by missaw and NeuteK whilst residing in Nottingham, UK. At the start it was just those two playing once a month in the back room of the now defunct Blueprint Nightclub.

missaw would play some nice tunes and NeuteK would play a tracker liveset, or live coding, or maybe hacking dance mat software to make people fall over. Simple times. Captain Chaos and Sadistician of sister label Braincore Recordings also got involved and things were fun if a little inconsequential.

Then the club got closed down, and we decided to organise events in places like London, Manchester, Leeds, Malta and Berlin. We started our free digital label in June 2008 and have put out 50 releases thus far, with approximately 100k downloads to date. 2010 has been a busy year for The Centrifuge so far, as the label HQ relocation to Berlin in January was accompanied by the announcement of an artist management & booking agency and a significant roster expansion.

Most of the tracks in this selection for Electronic Explorations are fresh cuts from our label with a few two exclusive treats from our agency crew for good measure. Hope you enjoy!

Additional Notes from the artist:
Pharaonic Dusk Irdial : Many thanks to Robert A. Moog, for the sounds in this song especially, but in many others. Thanks to my parents for going to Egypt + buying a crappy Egyptian touristy thing , I don’t even know what it was, but it was in the bathroom when I went round + had the word “pharonic” (incorrectly spelt) on it. As always a massive UNthanks to Orion Platinum, for crashing so many times, I remade so many bits, eventually I gave up with some, and as a result, some bits might sound different to other bits, if you know what I mean. But this, at least, I can look back on as a problem of 2005, represented unwillingly in this song. (2009 edit – I’m still using it :P)

Old Tune: Jacob Solstice strums away on Guitar at 1:50 as instructed.

Safe Pt.3: I’m a fraud. I don’t know how I made this tune at all, I just know I played the keyboard + the tuning was all wrong. Still, I enjoy listening to it, so here it is.

Sad Kiss: Noises from a saucepan bought on a mundesley camping trip with Billie, Matthew and Lucy. Actually, it was meant to be an egg poacher, but all the other saucepans were 16 pounds or something, and this one was 3, and we only needed it for some noodles. Piano is Matthews one, recorded at Matthews, using Matthews minidisk player. Guitars: Olley Neale should be twiddling away on your left hand side, and Jacob Solstice on your right.

The Frub: An unedited solo played at 6am one morning in June. Except for the backwards notes + bell right at the end.

Propperchopper: penny whistle blowed into by me.

Become: Guitar, Jacob Solstice. There were going to be melodies in this tune by Gareth Clarke, but that only materialised in a tiny clip that I treasure.

Small Gl9ck Tune: glock bit by me.

Summer Breaks tune 3: Glock and “singing”/making noises by me (notice the painstaking audio engineering to give the illusion I’m singing in a small room into a £1.99 mic when it’s actually an AKG C12VR Multi Pick-up Tube Microphone in my multi-million pound professional studio). Guitars aplenty from Jacob Solstice.

Jazzydnb: chords based on/stolen from a tune I heard in the record shop soundclash once. Guitar riff by Olley Neale, Clarinet by me. But it would have been better if I hadn’t of broken the ligature the day I was going to record the part. And then the part took ages to come so I was probably all out of practise.yeah.

Safe Pt.2: Another solo.

Kitano Meso: This tunes structure goes out of the window, oh well.

Fuck Offensive T-shirts: Starts as a Venetian Snares impression in acid pro. I’m not really sure what happens to it. Laughter by Me, Olley, and Billie, at various different times.

You may have noticed the many random numbers audible during the playing of this recording. These are from a quadruple disc collection called “The Conet Project” downloadable from www.archive.org. Or you can head to http://www.irdial.com/conet.htm to be set on the trail of finding out more about these fascinating “number stations”, and unbelievably you can actually buy the CDs of the thing you probably just downloaded for free – and even a T-shirt.

Tracklist:
1. Ends And Beginnings And All That
2. Wowmwowmwowm Song
3. Further Hearts
4. Snow Glitter Data 3
5. Landscape Android – Blue
6. Wick
7. Day After Day

Artist Comments:

The EP begins with the reversed sound of the ending of the 2005 album, representative of a return to the ideals of my “proper” music. You might say “That’s one hell of an opening sentence, I haven’t even heard of you, what’s more you’re putting words in my mouth. You’ve created this fictitious character which is an unfair portrayal of me, and now you think you can justify it by making the character mention this for confusing/comic effect”. To which I would reply “Wow, you said exactly as I predicted in my description of my EP, I will reply with this, to complete the circle of self-reference so we can get on with the description”.

Sorry. Why a return to the melodic complexities was so vital is that I had completed a few projects since then that were far from pretty. One of which had gone on to be 624% more popular than my “real” music (The Tesco Value Gabba EP, to which, like a contradicting schizoid idiot I am now writing the sequel, as well as yet more Jungle & Dubstep, what am I like.)

Wowmwowmwowm Song is a happy number based on an unearthed loop that had remained buried amongst the unfinished file mountain since 2003. Further Hearts and Snow/Glitter/Data 3 are continuations/developments of previous themes (cashing in on my “hits”). Landscape Android (my ambient pseudonym who hasn’t lifted a finger in 4 years) pops in for a little light relief before the thrashing twisted darkness of Wick. Day After Day stutters along in a peculiar rhythm with depressed melodies underneath that sometimes crash to the surface, ending in a psychedelic snoop-hop fade-out.

Melody is something so important to me and I feel the balance is often swung in the favor of releases focusing on timbre/rhythmic complexities that often forego descernable/traditional melody. I love that stuff to bits too, but if you’re looking for decent progressive melody based electronic music you can sometimes be dis-heartened by the vast quantities of releases that sound lush but stay in the same minor chord for the whole album, or centre around heaviness/percussion. It makes it a joyous occasion when I find someone who can meld incredible production with melodic inventiveness. I certainly don’t profess to belong in this category, owing to an often slapdash production in favor of getting tunes out quicker, but I hope someone out there enjoys this tipping of the balance.
