MoM008 - Best Available Technology - Enginetics & Plasmalterations
Kevin Palmer weaves a world of sound into being with humble machines and ritual production and documentation as Best Available Technology. An approach aptly described as “construction and deconstruction on the fly,” BAT’s intuitive blend of atmospheric sound collage, abstract and dub techno, hazy recollection and dreamed hip hop homage has found homes with the likes of Styles Upon Styles, Astro:Dynamics and Opal Tapes, as well as his own imprint, Working Nights. Enginetics & Plasmalterations, presented by Glasgow’s 12th Isle, is a fresh and refined wave of disintegrating 4/4 jams, pulsations of rhythmic noise, rainy boom bap impressions and compressed dub marches – it’s hard to believe these came from the same mind, let alone only one soul. We are stoked to celebrate his latest release for this month’s MOM. Each copy comes with limited edition riso-printed obi-stripped / tripped design by Will Work for Good and printed in Brooklyn by Keegan Mills-Cooke.
