Two decades after The Stalker 33rpm Kybernaughty happily presents his new record: Ikarie 33rpm – back in vinyl!
It is the terminus of an unexpected journey, bowing to idols while steering its own course. It is also a Janus-faced creation: digitally pulsating metamorphosis confronts analog melting melodies.
A – side is a pumping piston, always on the move, beating, hammering, sculpting sound. B – side veils its sonic nihilism in enticing melodies and unpretentious plastic rhythms. Learn to love the synth tom.Succulent Moog basses pierced by the binary harshness of FM synthesis. Synth legends of the neon age in strange encounters with software synthesis, eurorack modules and the humble four-string. Straight from the O-coast, dual oscillators hover like angry helicopters around the confines of well-tempered harmony – Ikarie invites you to plunge deep.
Like the eponymous Czech masterpiece, Ikarie is about change, challenge and reckoning. The artwork by W. Mages beautifully captures the facetious, multilayered and ultimately singular experience of a twenty years’ journey in electronic music.
The record will be available directly from the artist at the concert.
