Fernando seixlack with some chrunchy low-fi analogue tracks on House Crime with some unexpected Chicago inspired beauties inbetween. All recorded live in one or two takes most, using a Roland MC 505 , Roland Aira TR8 , some FX pedals , recorded in cassette on a Tascam 424.
Conceived along the space of a few years and part of a big collection of unfinished experiments stored on cassette tapes, this eight tracks selection well represents Fred Ventura’s late 80s and early 90s infatuation with Chicago House, Detroit Techno, early Warp records and even a secret passion for EBM. Using a basic set up made of Roland Juno 106, Roland JX-8p, Oberheim DX, Roland TR909 and an Akai sampler, these tracks were never officially mixed and meant to be released until today. Minimal and hypnotic, dry and direct, both sides of the record show an instinctive approach to rhythms and basslines, typical of those days where computer didn’t have a predominant role in the creative process.
