toktek (Holland) and Simon Berz (Switzerland) battle it out in supercharged music sessions.
Playing their self-made electronic instruments/interfaces, they turn pure human emotion and body language into sound that results in a spasmic, sweaty conversation between toktek, Simon and their machines. Their Debut, FELL, is the result of excessive studio sessions in New Orleans.
The self titled debut EP FELL opens up a universe of living sounds. Both Simon Berz and toktek are masters of their instruments. The permutating songs are full of dynamic changes, fragile sound constructions mutate into a groove or a wide spread layer from one moment to another. FELL brings back organic textures to electronic music. The four tracks are full of dodgy, grooving beats, bulky micro sounds and wide spread sound layers.
About toktek: Over the years, toktek has mastered the art of sampling anything that makes sound. Nothing is more entertaining than watching toktek build up his palette of sounds from random musical objects and then blissfully play them on his controller. He’s like a modern day Ro- binson Crusoe enjoying his castaway life in electronic music wonderland.
About Simon Berz:
During his professional drumming career, Simon Berz has invented new ways to communicate with his drum kit. By using DIY analog electronic devices, his drum kit creates feedback and communicates back to him. The ensuing dynamic exchanges range from loud arguments to the whisper of sweet nothings.
The FELL EP was mastered by Willy Strehler and will be released on December 14th as limited (200 pieces) 12" Vinyl und digitally via Bandcamp, Beatport, iTunes, etc.
The FELL EP is distributed by Godbrain Distribution.
