Angel Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Finnish experimentalist Ilpo Väisänen, one half of Pan Sonic and Angel, is somewhat a feature of the Mego family, returning to the label with his follow up full length for Communist Dub. A similar approach can be felt, deconstructed dubby electronics that break and mangle until they become individual noises, falling in and out of form. Basing these compositions on economic crises and the instability of capitalism, obviously.
The fourth release by Angel for Editions Mego expands upon their singular combination of electronics, traditional instrumentation and extended technique. The musical reduction & simplicity of Terra Null. is a beautiful and brooding statement on cultural darwinism. At a time when the dominance of capital and greed blanket our world in a singular destructive objective, Angel deploy a reductionist technique that opens a path towards a potential new reality. Slow moving drones peer from the cracks providing a fluid motion of dark beauty.
Written and produced by Ilpo Väisänen and Dirk Dresselhaus. Recorded and mixed in February 2011 at ZONE, Berlin Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin
