SKAM

Afrodeutsche (Henrietta Smith-Rolla), is a British born Ghanaian / Russian / German artist, composer, producer, and DJ based in Manchester.

Afrodeutsche’s DJ style is a synthesis of Drexciyan and Underground Resistance - inspired selections, intercut with a variety of forward thinking UK techno such as Bola and Lego Feet.

"Break Before Make" seeks to re-align the disposia of global electronic community into a united universal consciousness. You won't find standard chord progressions and linear arrangements here; instead, an almost cinematic journey through mainframes, drum machines and synthesizes voiced and transferred through a modern, mystic muse.

Certain to take the listener on a journey when enjoyed start to finish, whether in a crowd or solo; but there's plenty of nuggets can be mined from the album for the adventurous DJ too. In particular, Afrodeutsche's attention to new and evolved displays of rhythm, texture and mood elevate the album into a so-far unchartered realm. Top marks.

Hi Scores

Skam Records drop a welcome re-release of Boards of Canada killer 'Hi Scores'. This follows the reissue of their other seminal records by Warp in 2013.

The new edition has been re-recorded and re-mastered from the original DAT tapes and has been re-cut onto heavyweight collector’s edition vinyl.

The CD is placed in a digi-pak sleeve with some extra art and the vinyl includes a double-sided 12” poster.

The original image on the back of the sleeve is in colour. There is a spot varnish finish on the images and text alongside the usual Skam Braille sticker to give the whole package new depth and a refreshing look and feel.

Originally released in 1996, this six track EP signalled the arrival of a major force on the electronica scene. Everything you love about the BOC sound is here; crunching breaks, busy electronic infills, crystalline tones, synth lines reminiscent of the theme tunes and incidental music from 1970s Programmes for Schools and Colleges. Included are the wonderful title track 'Hi Scores', haunting 'Turquoise Hexagon Sun', electro-funker 'Nlogax', dancefloor slammer 'June 9th', sleazy, queasy 'Seeya Later' and melancholic hip hop cut 'Everything You Do Is A Balloon'.

'Hi Scores' hasn't been available since 2005, so take advantage of this limited remastered repress and grab yourself a copy of BOC history!


FORMAT INFORMATION

12" Info: Repress!!

After 10 long years hidden away in the hills, huddled over the controls of the Bolamachine, Bola finally awakens. Over the eleven tracks of "D.E.G." the Bolaman lurches between restraint and rage, capturing disintegrating vignettes and fractal repetitions into a glitch-ridden vision of power, elegance and beuaty. No humans were harmed during the making of Evensong. While every care was taken, slight but unavoidable human abuse was endured in the making of Kappafects. High grade IDM for the machine elves out there.
