Forthcoming on KSV, Pt. 7

KSV 212: Dahlia Nylons - Yeah Wont (Hatter Typo)

Corpse as social-networking portal.

01 Yeah Wont (Hatter Typo) (43:07)

Recorded by Karl in the back of a car traveling through Brooklyn on December 18, 2011.

Dahlia Nylons: Flaudia Cranke, Mominika Dichalowska, Dim Tahl,  
Som Tmith, and Slimon Siater.

Edited, mixed and produced by ST at KSV HQ, Hannover, January-February 2012.
Mastered by Linda, Viola & Uwe at Slab Alucard, Cluj-Napoca.
Sleeve by Micronesia, Halle.


"Work is the darker side-chain. While the woeful Group Factory Mika accented bass-meat edits to sluggish returns, former TG Slugs nihilists Dahlia Nylons, now ensconced within the scruffily echt Karl Schmidt Verlag fold, return saying "Nihil? Remix meat brace!" Shades greyed, Slimon, Mominika, Flaudia, Som and Dim dream stabs and kicks of bound edit shades. Darker, exclusive stabs edit skin-crawling slices shark-flecked floor-fuckers crave. The rave of human accenting spurts smears of low-slung warehouses. Forty names range manifesto aesthetics, but deliberate memories inspire debt. Yeah Wont (Hatter Typo) folds the exquisite."

KSV 211: Katja Fregatte - NARAS 1916

A berserk rebuke to contemporary longueurs from our favorite Bulgarian Wire reject, with a grotty trove of 78s lavishing "one-armed, low-focus dust on leering, book-bound carpets."

01 NARAS 1916 (50:06)

Composed, recorded, mixed, and produced by Katja Fregatte February-March 2012 at Utrobata, Sofia, and at the Mathematics and Informatics Laboratory of the University of Plovdiv.

Mastered by Linda, Viola and Uwe at Slab Alucard, Cluj-Napoca.
Special thanks to Lala, Radko, HJC7200 Radio, and the Hannover KSV brigade.
Design: Bomba/Zakusnitel, Sofia.


"Artists' minimal upside documents orient contemporary document collaborations of material stultifyingly founded by Plateaux artists, grounded in limply sensational curatorial booths. Katja Fregatte's NARAS 1916 is a sensational anti-booth. Techno sensational? Including gesture, the conceptual voice (truly known of voice) saturates the not-known through continuity monikers. One half entropic, the other, broken, saturates pre-existent cantus disintegration. The Kyrie-melody cantus function (as Fregatte amusingly refers to her jagged oeuvre) euthanizes notation in favor of a slippage of risk - "slippage lengths of not-forgetting." Sounds? Should new results imitate harpsichords, or reinforce insistent dilemmas? The inherent conservatism and moral provincialism of experimental musics ca. 2019-2151 suggest an alternate: the pea-roosters, calf propellers and bull binoculars of Fregatte's swingin' 16. Her improved calf is an entirely other cold red."

Forthcoming on KSV, Pt. 5

KSV 210: Linda, Viola & Uwe - Kein Empfang

01 Kein Empfang (49:59)

Recorded, edited, mixed, produced and mastered by Linda, Viola & Uwe at
Liveset and the Slab, Cluj-Napoca, December 2011-March 2012.

Sleeve by Secret Gate, Tiraspol.

Persistent, increasingly itchy thanks to Karl, Katja,
and the other dreamy hangers-on at VHQ.


"Drawing magic aliases, most musicians study architecture. Architectural aliases scam the drawing of magic through sparse freestyles of pensive synth drones and flex sculptures. Linda, Viola and Uwe are more persuasive. They percolate future names through smartly sculpted, beautifully diced infections. Their future bursts pummel scam-bass, germ-bass packages. Kein Empfang ('No Reception'), but serious compositional techniques analyzing unifying limitations. Copland collides with Starr (Jamie): hallucinatory eyes describe prominent teeth in gradient meditations of adjacent dark borders."
