Hoavi - Phobia Airlines (2lp, 180gr) - Silkscreen Print Cover, Download Card

FAUXPAS029We are pleased to announce the debut release of a young producer from St. Petersburg, HOAVI. His adventurous electronic sound is one we haven t heard in a while and excited us on first listen. While on one hand, his music has a traditional sound (early 90s UK), HOAVI does create a world of his own due to the versatility in his productions. It is this versatility that creates an exciting hybrid sound, therefore pushing the envelope and making it sound very current, future even. vinyl tastes better…

Mark Barrott - Nature Sounds Of The Balearics

rbinc003lpMark Barrott is the man behind International Feel, Roca, Future Loop Foundation, as well as being a founding of the Balearic boy-band “Talamanca System” alongside Gerd Janson & Lauer. Nature Sounds of The Balearics is Mark’s debut LP on Running Back Incantations. Most music does not come out of nowhere. Arising and appearing in a pre-existing system of influences, cross-references, roots, memories and desires, it either directly points towards a heritage or into the future. Mark Barrott’s Nature Sounds of the Balearics is a bit of both. The mastermind behind the International Feel label and the Sketches from an Island series presents an intermediary. Technically, it’s his departure from a software based workflow and onto (or back to) a hardware driven creative point of view. Philosophically, it deals with the schizophrenia of our times: the late Paul Virgilio’s dromology and logistics of perception versus a decelerated life outside of cities, internet algorhythmics (sic!) versus meditation, the excessive stock market (all track titles are derivates of that world) against a tactile way of living. Musically, it is the outcome of what Barrott himself described as his „techno album“. For people whose definition of techno has to do with speed (again) and kick drums that might seem like a misinterpretation. Listeners who remember the Artificial Intelligence and Freezone compilations, various chill out channels or Detroit’s mellow moments, will tend to agree. „Nature Sounds of the Balearics“ miraculously evokes those days and times, without breaking his neck.
