This long sold out classic, pressed to wax for the first time. Vinyl cut in Germany by Optimal. Mastered by Sam Annand.
'ATELIER / FERME' is the debut collaboration between buddies Michael Marshall (Object Agency) and Roméo Poirier (Swim Platførm), as the two combine trumpet, guitar, saxophone and an array of vintage synths on a series of sleek, heady instrumentals.
Recorded in Strasbourg, ATELIER sees pin-sharp found sounds woven amongst cavernous clicks, pops and weirdly synthesised voices to form an addictive, technodelic bricolage. Think Domenique Dumont floating in a sensory deprivation tank, or Joe Hisaishi enjoying a fine wine tasting holiday in Alsace.
ALTITUDE 1 is a hypnotic live jam recorded at Swim Platførm's home in Brussels, and features Devon Loch on sax. The FERME sessions of side B, recorded live in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, are all brooding orchestral stabs shot through folds of analogue organ, conjured from a snow-covered cabin. Recommended for fans of To Rococo Rot and Huerco S.
