After a pandemic induced gap since the last release, Artificial Horizon makes our first foray into the digital realm with tracks from Sophie Du Palais, Mavridis, Petros Spatharos, Kafkactrl, AIR LQD, Future Relics and Roberto Auser. As a temporary antidote to this ever more cryptic world, the ‘Wrongful Convictions’ V/A brings together artists from all corners of Europe who share an affinity for the spectral side of the sonic plains.
Long overdue, here comes AIR LQD’s first full-length player, “Repeat Itself”, making up for the direct follow-up of his acclaimed vinyl debut released on the label in 2016. Mixing science fiction, social criticism and punk ethics in the most cryptic fashion, the latest entry in the discography of the taciturn Belgian groove-maker sees him pushing further his electronic experimentation. Delving into the meanders of the human consciousness through hazy and abrasive rituals, brainpowered by robotics, artificial intelligence and urban metamorphism. The weird looping echo of a man-machine drifting through a vortex of feral scratches and overworked machinery. Slowly moving towards the event horizon of a supermassive black hole, leading to unexpected aural aberrations full of hidden, past and new meanings. Giving a last disillusioned glance at our human condition facing technological progress and the toxicity of the outside world.
