D. BALL

Step Ball Chain continues to shake the system and flip the skritch with its third offering via MYKI’s follow up solo release “Delenya”. The undeniably intriguing Tel-Avivian Producer & DJ, also part of the Tofistock label family and member of Shen band, shares a consensual glimpse into his fevered brain over the course of a spellbinding week. Progressively exposing sensations rooted in paranoia and isolation of recent dystopian life, the EP is sonically metamorphosed into conscious expanding club explorations, percussively advanced and masterfly frenzied dance tools for the globe's memorable dance floors. With an additional likeminded remix from label-head Roza Terenzi, the 4 tracks embody a staunch riot signalling the optimistic restoration of movement and ferocity, highlighting the crucial role and release these sentiments provide.

Tracks from the late, great D. Ball; excavated, polished and re-illuminated by the good folks at Ourtime for our listening pleasure. More understated than previous releases from Dave, but carrying the same depth, essence and sentimentality that runs through all of his music.

Expansive landscapes, primal kinetics & timeless electronix on this one, a real trip for the mind with enough shimmer and stutter to keep the more free-minded dancefloor dweller shuffling away in the corner with his / her eyes wide shut. There's a seriously melancholic undertone here; hinting at some existential darkness that seems to encroaching on the Earth (remember Dave sadly died BEFORE all this COVID / Capitalist Realism nonsense started, yet the music seems potmarked with dystopia).

If you're into nagging, modular grunts and squeals; thick dense atmospheres and highly emotive pads and presets then you'll probably already be a fan of this artist's work. If not, then welcome to one of the most visionary, singular and innovative producers from the Manchester - Salford connection!

Limited copies, highly recommended. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Avid collectors of Ourtime will have already bagged this in earnest. But if you're new to this guy and have any kind of inclination towards Northwest electronics and specifically techno and electro made in Manchester or Salford - then D Ball is the crème of the crop.

    Heavy Ball

    When Can You Start?

      "When Can You Start? recounts a week in the life of an ordinary office worker. The diary of a nobody who represents everybody. He doesn’t know it, but this week is different. Because this week is his last on earth.

      Storytelling, humour and everyday observations wrapped up in sharp melodies. When Can You Start? is a story of the very ordinary told differently.

      The first track to be released from the album is ‘Top of Your Game’. You used to be someone, you used to be a contender. Now you work in an office doing nothing of consequence for people you hate. The memories are still there though, and there’s still a small chance you could still make it big! Upbeat, uplifting, a hint of melancholy – this is Heavyball!

      Heavyball are a self titled ‘new tone’ 4 piece band originally from Nottingham; signed to Magnetic North Melodies. They describe their sound as 'new tone', a modern interpretation of two tone and ska. Influences include Viz, Shane Meadows and the story writing traditions of country and western. "

      Ball

      Horny

        Intensely disturbed, dirty, smut peddling, Swedish slime hardrock-psych-madness from the deepest cesspool of humanity. Fucked up subhuman fuzz guitars. Depraved, screaming vocals. Gut rumbling bass and caveman drums. A nightmare of revolting sounds. Ball is hardrock from hell.

        Scott Walker

        And Who Shall Go To The Ball? And What Shall Go To The Ball?

          Scott Walker was commissioned by London's South Bank Centre to write the music for a contemporary dance piece, released here as a limited edition in exquisite deluxe packaging. Entitled "And Who Shall Go To The Ball? And What Shall Go To The Ball?", the entirely instrumental composition is made up of four movements with a total running time of 25 minutes. Scott has this to say about the music: 'Apart from a slow movement given over to solitude, the music is full of edgy and staccato shapes or cuts, reflecting how we cut up the world around us as a consequence of the shape of our bodies. How much of a body does an intelligence need to be potentially socialised in an age of ever-developing AI? This is but one of many questions that informed the approach to the project.'

          Bouncy Ball

            Ladyfuzz were fully formed in London in early 2005 when Austrian front woman Liz Neumayr was joined by guitarist Matt Lord and drummer Ben Esser. "Bouncy Ball" is a taste of what to expect from their forthcoming debut album "Kerfuffle".
