DSCRMNT Bonus #5 : JASON E. ANDERSON b/w MATT CARLSON
EDIT: OUT OF STOCK Here we are in 2013 to present DSCRMNT Bonus tape #5, roughly 6 months behind schedule at this point but, what the hell, we’re plowing ahead into the future. We were so inspired by the split release between Jason E. Anderson (Gift Tapes, DRAFT, Brother Raven, Spare Death Icon, etc.) and Matt Carlson (Golden Retriever, Bucket Factory) on Börft Records / UFO MONGO last year that we figured we’d keep the fun going by putting these guys on a tape together. Both of these artists stand out from the crowd by concentrating on the construction of quality tracks, and we couldn’t be more happy to include them in our ongoing series of bonus tapes.
Here is a playlist of tracks that have been released so far in the series (including Jason and Matt’s tracks). Please feel free to post this on your blog or facebook page :
As stated earlier, this C10 will not be available for individual purchase on our website. This is a promotional item which will be added to customer orders on a first come first served basis, while supplies last. The tapes are pro dubbed, imprinted, and packaged in a custom O-card. Once these are gone we’ll have 7 more C10′s from 14 more great artists throughout the year (hopefully to conclusion before 2014), so watch this space or our twitter feed for updates!
This week we are very happy to announce that we’re carrying titles from PEAK OIL, a new L.A. based label that shows a lot of potential in exploring mainly west coast styles of experimental and fringe techno, and I base that assumption on the first 2 releases in the catalog. PEAK02 is by a familiar name to DSCRMNT followers, as we’ve been carrying M. Geddes Gengras‘ tapes on various labels since our humble beginnings. This time around he’s on more of a techno bender under the alias of PERSONABLE, and it’s a great release that we’ve been enjoying immensely. However, the selection for “Vinyl Release of the Week” here in our tiny offices has to go to Paul “Strategy” Dickow for his self titled e.p. (PEAK01).
When I think back on it, Strategy’s music has been a steady part of my musical diet since 2003 with the release of “Strut” on Outward Music Company (now defunct label out of pdx). Since that first CD we’ve followed his dub drenched electronic experiments for labels like Kranky, Orac, Audio Dregs, his own Community Library imprint, and now Peak Oil (there are more labels I could add to that list, but you know how to use Discogs, right?). This particular e.p. continues Paul’s exploration of loosely played, rain soaked, Northwest bent electronic music that feels like just our style. Yes, we recommend it.
