LONG ISLAND ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

Originally released as a limited run cassette on Low Jack's Editons Gravats label in 2017, we now get an official vinyl pressing via L.I.E.S.

Krikor Kouchian serves this killer soundtrack to the documentary 'Arabie Saoudite: Les Liaisons Dangerousness' Where the French TV program focuses on the Saudi royal family’s support of Wahhabism and the West’s appeasement of Saudi foreign policy, Kouchian underlines and accentuates the content with a brooding blend of mirage-like electronics and minimalist drum machine geometries. A deviation from his previous works and one in which he moves into appropriately darker synth territory.

Running the anything goes travelling warehouse rave "Fusion mes Couilles" Emma DJ and Ishaq have created a unique situation with their party series in Paris. The two have been able to do what not many have, which is create a party environment strictly on their own terms, with no outside influence, no pandering to agents or the trends of the day and no outside money rearing its head trying to influence. This endeavor is no small feat considering the oversaturated and bland nitelife climate over the last years in the city. The result of their hard work, has been a large scale dedicated fanbase that trust them, hands down.

Over these years both Emma DJ and Ishaq had been working independently on their own productions as well, with Emma DJ recently releasing a slew of tapes in a hyperactive, machine gun manner, while Ishaq makes his first appearance on wax here.
On the "Fusion" split lp we get four tracks from Emma DJ on the a-side and four tracks from Ishaq on the b-side...both artists bring their unique takes on modern dance music on each side of the record from gnarled acid, to tweaked IDM, to broken techno, or ADD chopped guitar loop beats, this is a truly unique release documenting the sound of the top crew in the Paris underground.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Always a ballsy move putting such an iconic image on your sleeve but this split LP earns its stripes within the first minute of the opener. Growling sequences, fractured drum machines and industrial idents are presented in fresh and original ways, switching up the techno blueprint for 2020.

Ron Morelli's "Laughter Taker" is taken off the "Disappear" LP from 2018. Now the label owner enlists a crack squad of remixers for a super limited, highly collectable LIES outing!

Noise makers Mick Harris (Scorn, Fret), Parrish Smith and Overlook are called in to demolish and demonize the track starting with Mick Harris cataclysmic hurricane on side B, Parrish Smith's fast paced hi-tech-booty jam on side B and Overlook concluding proceedings with a pitch black event horizon populated with ghostly choirs and sinister energy.

LIES' experimental noize merchant and high concept artist, Torn Hawk, is back with another slurry of mechanized freakouts, electro-static discharge and industrialized chaos. A producer who manages to impart his own sense of impending collapse onto whatever style or genre he's working in there's also a fragile sense of personality he oft manages to convey through dark electronic ballads and avant-garde soundscapes.

Across eleven tracks for LIES we see further into the mind and soul of this exploratory and fearless producer. At times painfully bleak, at others aurally arresting, it takes no prisoners and compromises on nothing. A truly personalized rendition of environment, mood and feeling from a unique and out there artist of the 21st century.

New York City by way of Miami, Alex Suarez delivers his debut lp the eight track "Autogolpe" for L.I.E.S. Autogolpe, is a term for military coup initiated by a dictator to take control of an existing government and Suarez uses this loose idea to create the range of emotions associated with said act. Musically he expands on his prior releases for Bank and Primitive Languages as heavy industrialized sonic beatings sit next to somber passages; oil drum slow beat tribal clangers provide a back drop for screams shooting out of the dark. Musically it paints a distorted picture of world in decline, an exile from another land and arrivial to anothers in chaos or the clinging hope of something better on the other side.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Gloomy and dystopic, Alex Suarez' debut LP muses on military coups, offering hissing ambient pieces, abrasive industrial workouts and polyrhythmic techno snarlers over the course of eight impactful tracks.

Following up his self titled 12" earlier this year; Austin, Texas-based Shane English continues in his path exploring the deep and bizarre edges of the American DIY electronic world. Over these eight tracks we get English's dissonant take on collapsing industries, the ever growing immunity to antibiotics and the failing nature of human consciousness. Inspired by the failing American Dream and society's great demise, it highlights an era dominated by micro-species - insects, bacteria; and cybernetic implants. A land devoid of human experience, novelty and warmth; haunting, slightly menacing and heavily impacting. If you lack optimism about the progression of our species on this planet, then this is the record for you! 

Eric Copeland

Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect

Copeland brings the (schizoid, neon, frenetic) noise for his newest LP on L.I.E.S. Kicking things off with the juddering lo-fi stomp of 'Convoy', pushing hi-passed snares and delayed synth squeals through the mincer and ending up with some mechanically recovered heat, slavered liberally atop a solid foundation of mealy kicks and shuffled hats. 'Qualified' continues where we left off where vox are concerned, taking the mean voice of a hundred robots and gating them with some brutal sample & hold abstractions. In case this wasn't enough of thematic giveaway, bit-crushed synths fire off like lasers into the neon-lit heavens, turning the casual romp through the dystopian wilderness into a climactic white-knuckle boss-fight. 
Moving further along, and 'Doggy' presents the first indication of rhythmic convention, with lithe bass fragents flickering over a classic four-to-the-floor percussive backdrop before pulling out the flicker-machine once again to heavily treat the melodic overtones into a brittle amalgam of crystalline pulses and terse filter cuts. 
'Ultimo' veers into lite grime territory with sqelchy digital synths weaving their way around the cut-up vocal snippets and tinny flanged cymbals (it would sound great blaring out of a nokia speaker on the back of the 168). Brilliantly futuristic but with nods to everything that has secured its passage up to this point. Copeland has always pushed the boundaries, and this is no different, it just so happens that his boundary pushing has veered squarely into the wonky lo-fi house/techno/misc zone I find so appealing. RIYL Opal Tapes / Cloudface / SNES.

Barry says: Brilliantly eccentric soundtrack to futuristic mishaps, last-life white-knuckle gaming and dusty sampler glitches. Superb.

New York by way of Miami, Nick Klein has strung together an impressive discography over the last couple years releasing music for Alter, Ascetic House, and Bank among others, while at the same time handling his own Primitive Languages imprint bringing to life music by a wide range of cellar dwelling freaks. Some time in the making, we now see Klein with his debut on L.I.E.S. displaying, over four tracks, a wide range of production styles, each effective in their own right. From side-chained jack to peak red drum work outs to computer based minimalist bit destruction this EP proves to be a crushing statement from an artist coming into his own. Forays into wormholes, mainframes and plasma swamps for rave goblins, techno zombies and dancefloor mutants throughout the cosmos. Recommended!
