I would like to stress how great collaborating with an artist like Quinn has been. It took us months to complete this project and I haven’t met a better, more open or positive person to collaborate with. We would critique each others work, pushing the project in a totally new and unexpected direction within a 5 minute conversation, but in such a smooth, cooperative and positive way that it was hard to remember that there had ever been an argument in the first place. I believe these experiences are reflected throughout the project musically & visually.
I discovered Software Wolf uploaded on a lonely Soundcloud profile with a couple of followers and two or three odd beat-driven songs. At first I was really confused. Who made these awesomely weird tunes? It took some effort, but after several messages and emails their creator was found. The album took some time to get compiled. Quinn and I tried our best to pay close attention to detail throughout the project. The idea of focusing the visual aspect of the release on Korea came a bit after we started the project. Quinn is located in Korea, for now, and both of us are really interested on the modern history of this troubled place. It made total sense to touch the subject somehow.

There is a stench here so old that it rids the body of any uncertainty. It is a comfortable rapture. The stench comes not from distant swamps, putrescent and green in their small wakes, or the mounds of bone matter and meat made dust underfoot. This waft of hidden and yet all-too demanding treasures lifts itself steadily from the bated, beating wings of the Bird, on its eternal voyage somewhere far past home.

Regularly releasing albums as a member of STEVEN PORTER for various international record labels, Sludge-Tapes presents Ducerey Ada Nexino, a solo album from the founder of the recent upstart Kyoto-based, 10 Label. Starting out with unexpected heavy, distorted guitar, this release moves from arhythmic tracks, like buildings crumbling in slow motion, to abstract interpretations of obsolete industrial techno. Unlike anything heard on other labels, this is a presentation of heterochromatic black-stepping techno.

The first EP from the next generation of technoise. An intersection of extreme high- frequency feedback and heavy, incisive beats. This long track is buried in the extremes of the dancefloor and experimental music. An exhibition of new music.
