Words from Rocket:
DDTT is a two track EP that at it’s core is exploring the art of repetition, with each track surpassing the 12 minute mark.
The song DDTT itself is centered around a series of monotonous African rock sounding drum patterns, plucked guitar riffs that overlap at varying speeds, all building to an intoxicating sound that juxtaposes itself as well as locking into a tight groove. As the track builds, layer upon layer of bowed cymbals collide with tight percussion and a minimalist bass line straight out of Holger Czukay’s handbook.
Sheets of bowed drones reminiscent of Tony Conrad are at the core of second track Det långa straffet. The ritual looping of fluttering live drums, palpitating bass, trace and retrace repetitively within the carousel of grooves. Climaxing are sound rousing heavy horns, the whole piece gratifyingly serves as a brute force repetitive handprint
of human intent.
DDTT is an EP for the fans of the new Polish scene and the constantly excellent Instant Classic Records, and the minimal electronica explorations by Chicago acts like Joshua Abrams and Bitchin Bajas.
The EP is released on the 16th March 2018 worldwide and available on LP/DL
We are happy to announce that we are playing Rocket Recordings 20 years anniversary party.
We just finished two long monotonous pieces in the studio – which we are really excited about! Hope to be able to share them with you in a near future!
In 2014 VED toured Central Asia. In the village of Zerafshan in the Fann Mountains in Tajikistan we found an abandoned Soviet factory and recorded this improvisation. Filmed at location by Maciej Kalymon and Michael Cavanagh.
