BFDNL021

Released 25/07/2011

Fields is not such much an album as it is an evolving A/V experience, an environment, that leans more in the direction of a Steve Reich inspired minimalist piece than the beat-heavy territory of earlier Strangeloop releases.

Inspired directly by an experience while in an altered state of consciousness, Strangeloop heard a composition which he tried to create directly after, the result being a fluctuating subliminal epic in three sprawling and unique movements : 1. “Plants Inside”, 2. “Ghostlines” and 3, “Becoming Fields”. The movements correspond to three movements within a psychedelic trip; of initial birth and constellation, through to death / dissolution, and then finally a transcendental union of both.

Strangeloop is known mostly for his live-visual executions accompanying an unending list of artists: Amon Tobin, Flying Lotus, 12th Planet, and most of the Brainfeeder roster to name a few. The producer and video maker explores new lush and organic visual worlds in his latest release, available both for purchase with the EP, and as a part of an interactive A/V experience online.

The release features additional synth work by Strangeloop’s long time friend, collaborator, and fellow Brainfeeder, Austin Peralta, as well as sparse vocal revelations by Singapore based vocalist Vanessa Fernandez and Portland based vocalist Anna Gariby. It was mastered by Daddy Kev, and features visual collaborations with artists Gavin Gamboa, Ben Olsen, and Brandon Tay.

Portland Producer and vocalist Natasha Kmeto just released a new video for her upbeat anthem “Party Girl.” Directed by Harris Porter, the video shows a mostly-animated fantasy land where soundwaves transform into skylines and cool edits blur the boundaries between Kmeto’s physical form and the virtual world that surrounds her. Check out the video and keep you ears tuned because this multi talented beatress is definitely one to watch in 2011.

    Natasha appears this Wednesday (2/16) at Los Angeles’s legendary club night Low End Theory with Blank Blue, and on Thursday (2/17) performs alongside beat maestros Austin Peralta and Strangeloop at the Kava Lounge in San Diego.
