The Brvtalist is proud to present the music video premiere of Wristlet (Version) by Midwest experimental techno producer Coarses. This track comes off the cassette release, 0x002, out now on Philadelphia's End Result Productions.
Coarses is a techno artist from Cleveland, mixing drone and dub elements in order to craft minimal, but effectively throbbing 4x4 soundscapes with modular synthesizers, guitar pedals and drum machines. The metatext of Coarses’ work is designed to tell of an alternate, paradigm-shifted culture centered on vanity, female domination and cis/trans body worship. Track names, artwork and the overall aesthetic convey a militaristic replacement of the annals in Christian tradition; all efforts of the project are in service to this coming shift.
Along with this release, End Result is also in the midst of a prolific Summer Campaign where the label publishes one title per week for the 12 weeks of summer 2016. The Brvtalist would like to spotlight two other great releases from this campaign - PulseWidthMod and Obligate Surrogate.
PulseWidthMod - Entelechy (C33)
Baltimore’s Maeghan Donovan has been producing electronic music for years, but offers the proper PulseWidthMod debut with Entelechy on End Result Productions. In Aristotelian metaphysics, “entelechy” describes the final formation of a potential concept or function, and as such the thematic focus of the Entelechy album is concerned with exploring the transformations which are prompted by realizations of these forms. It is released as a C33 cassette tape with six songs of politically charged synthpop: dance music for inciting a riot from within, in order to rise up to the pursuit of individual potential.
Obligate Surrogate - Obligate Surrogate (C62)
An “obligate surrogate” carries out its assigned functions until called upon to support a body greater than itself, the point at which a similar unit has failed to support this greater body. The obligate surrogate attempts to perform the functions of the previous unit, but inevitably possesses unique characteristics and is thus unable to precisely replicate its functions. Based in Newark, DE, Casimer Oblivion chooses this name for a project of techno composed with hardware tools, wherein the constant, critical decisions must be made to either repair, replace-in-kind, or replace-with-other as they pertain to sound elements. This eponymous debut album exhibits the careful deliberation with which Oblivion makes these decisions, executed in structures of techno which are stylistically informed by genres of electro and acid house.
