Shirabe puts an end to the summer break for Antinote, with his new E.P. on the Parisian imprint. TIP!
On the A side, Down Into The Black Church offers us a last late-night dip in the pool before summer ends. Inoue Shirabe jams with his machines, extensively rotating knobs to create a deep bath of synth waves where bleeping
sounds meet aquatic percussions. The best think to do is probably to let yourself dive into this hypnotic sea of oscillators, and dance – driven by a thumping kick and slow hi-hats – at 96 Beats Per Minute.
For those seeking darker territories, just turn the record over. On Camping In Your Soul, the Okayama’s producer blends smashing claps and a raw bassline with cosmic synths; and the result somehow evokes an impossible meeting between Dieter Moebius and Unit Moebius.
