Taking inspiration from the open spaces, noise, and density of his adopted city Copenhagen, Perko follows up the acclaimed "NV Auto" EP with new music that yields maximum impact via minimalist principles.

Across the record’s eight tracks, rhythms are reduced to their most essential components. There is no wastage, just pure precision and skeletal funk juxtaposed with microscopic melodies. Embedded across the entirety of the release are the sounds of the city. Listen carefully and you’ll hear recordings of his friends and their local neighbourhoods, with the city becoming a bed of sound.

"Stutter" melts these influences into quick-footed vaporous electro. On "The Reason" Perko strips away the CSI synced excesses of drum n bass and synthesises percussion from samples of Stevie Williams skating at Love Park.

"Grounds" is a collaboration with Australian DJ / Producer Lia T, and stems from an exchange of field recordings between the two. These recordings became the core of the track, before Lia laid down additional synths. This all bleeds away into "Luna", which connects gently cascading melodies to the urban landscape.

The record closes with "Pippin", which comes in two versions. The grime concrète of the "Version" oozes feelings of creeping dread and nightmarish bass stabs. The original takes the stabs and merges them with his take on the steppers’ riddim.

In Perko’s world, introspective and breakneck electronic music share the same space, mirroring the complexities of the city around him.

Matt says: Absolutely jam packed & bargain priced 12" (more like LP) featuring an assortment of flavours that should appeal to fans of hi-tek electronica and advanced evolutions of bass music. Tip!

Lanark Artefax releases a new EP titled "Corra Linn" on 24th October via Numbers, l-a-n-a-r-k.net.

Cinematic, hyper-real soundscapes decorated by juddering, jagged contours and full spectrum synthesis evoke the vast expansiveness of the Scottish producer's homelands whilst catapulting the listener into the virtual and augmented next-worlds of the near future. The three-track EP arrives after last year’s remix of Björk and an extensive period touring his internationally acclaimed live A/V show.

Recorded sometime in the last year and a half, the three tracks across "Corra Linn" materialise like a cascading data flow; combining lazer sharp digital synths and hyperspatial sound design with scaled up, spine-tingling choral melodies, time-refracted field recordings and ethereal childlike vocal arrangements.

The EP’s title track, "Corra Linn", takes its name from a waterfall in the Lanark area of Scotland, the water of which flows into one of the oldest hydro-electric power stations in the UK. The artwork accompanying the EP is a photomicrographic image of Lanarkite; a rare and precious mineral form. Almost all significant occurrences of Lanarkite were discovered deep within the Leadhills in South Lanarkshire, but it is said that an unknown, but large, quantity of it was once unearthed at the base of Corra Linn waterfall.
