about

Rail Cables Winter Selection (2015) is a double LP featuring all new material from Scanner, Dru$s (of Salford surrealists Gnod) Ran Slavin & Greg Fox.

Each artist was given one side of vinyl each to explore the label's theme of music based around railway travel. My track begins with a late night train travel adventure, cascading SND style minimal rhythms and tripping over into early morning tech electronica. I created the entire work using my Eurorack Modular system, mostly live.

For copyright reasons I can only offer my track off the LP, but as described at the time, the remainder of this Double LP set features:

" Dru$s exploring the idea of late night solo train rides through inner city urban areas, starting off at Manchester Piccadilly before mainlining into the costa del Salford with an experimental electronic piece at times Low-era Bowie and at others more urban autobahn all executed with a Mancunian confidence on the last train to nowhere. Ran Slavin starts off side 3 with a bleak and cold number titled 'Unis' painting images of a winter evening spent on a cold platform 13 waiting for the last train home before things go proto-metal on Greg Fox's first number 'Lamb' where from the sounds of it his CD player has started skipping to great effect (long train ride perhaps the batteries started running out?) the sometime Ben Frost drummer covers a lot of ground with his side of experimental electronics that is just the ticket to closing off this beautifully compiled debut release from this promising label, a searching full length, we can't wait to see what awaits us at the next platform."
