Reissue of their much sought-after first album, finally getting the wider release it deserves courtesy of the bands own Duophonic imprint. It has been re-cut as a triple vinyl set, and is being made available on CD for the first time. The 3LP edition comes with a download card for the full album. The recordings here actually represent the genesis of the whole Cavern Of Anti-Matter project: commissioned by artist Nicolas Moulin to come up with a double album of original material, Tim Gane (formerly of the much-loved Stereolab) hunkered down in his home studio for three weeks with a collection of old sequencers, drum machines and analogue synths. With the assistance of Joe Dilworth and Holger Zapf he produced the 1 6 tracks that comprise blood drums. The initial pressing sold out instantly, and offers followed to play live and make more records. As a result of this positive response, Cavern Of Anti-Matter have gradually evolved from one-off experiment to full-time band.
Cavern Of Anti-Matter is the new project from Stereolab mainman Tim Gane, now Berlin-based and collaborating with original Stereolab drummer Joe Dilworth, and synth wizard Holger Zapf. This is their first album proper following limited edition vinyl releases on Grautag, Deep Distance, Peripheral Conserve and Associated Electronic Recordings. Void Beats/Invocation Trex also features contributions from Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3) and Jan St. Werner (Mouse On Mars).
Limited edition Record Store Day release on clear vinyl in a printed clear PVC sleeve Two tracks from the void beats / invocation trex album, bent into new shapes by two of the most exciting electronic producers of the moment. Chicago’s Jamal Moss records as Hieroglyphic Being, as well as a dizzying number of other names including The Sun God, Insane Black Man, Interplanetary Prophets (with Ital) and Face Of Drums (with Steve Poindexter). His typically raw and distorted re-work of “hi-hats bring the hiss” blends elements of acid house, industrial, and Sun Ra-style synth arpeggios, conjuring up a sense of blown out speakers at a subterranean 4am rave. US-born, London-based producer Karen Gwyer has released records for Opal Tapes, No Pain In Pop and Nous. Slowing down “void beat” to a glacial shuffle, subtle shifting textures drift somewhere in between stoned dub disco, fractured techno and the hypnotically repeating motifs of the best kosmische music.
