SIRC Interview

SIRC: a chat with Jimmi-Woods.


So how did SIRC begin?
Sirc ultimately began when I was messing around with a Korg M1 and Atari for sequencing with a good friend of mine Steve Bertschik in the early 90s. He went on to form Sonic Animation with some others and I needed to get my own gear. Decided on what I knew which was an M1 and an Atari. I then recorded some tapes and started experimenting but nothing serious.

What’s your personal journey in music production and performance? (Prior bands etc)
My journey into "serious" music was when I joined the band Angler who was at the time Marcus Bridges (guitar) and Neil Boyack (guitar) then Ben Bridges joined with drums. W started doing the live circuit around Melbourne and ended up recording 3 studio albums and two live albums. We managed to wrangler 4 star reviews in rolling stone magazine and other mags. Eventually the band started to fade between rehearsals but we still manage to record every now and then.

Tell us about the music influences that inspired you to produce? (Send me a link to a favourite track)
I think one of the biggest influences would have to be the Future Sound of London. Their album Lifeforms opened up my mind to what was possible in electronic music production.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLK6SyYf83DTlWUSg4XXJmDInMf0fqASPB

What’s your favourite track from your EP? (And Why?)
Very hard to choose a favourite track from the EP. I think why your here stands out a bit more than the others because of the half time snare and double time hats. I enjoyed writing that one from a new perspective.

 

Can you reveal your most prized performance weapon and why?
The Elektron RYTM would have to be the best live performance tool I have ever used. Such great sequencing and sampler power in the studio with the added live performance scenes and modes. Such control and at the same time the ability to go crazy if you want.

When’s your Next Gig?
25th October at Tago Mago in Thornbury.

SLICE013 - Fate Æffect’s Parabiosis

Parabiosis is a unique mix of occult industrial, cyber breaks, glitched idm and dark experimental electronic music, a glimpse at a futuristic dystopian world of cybernetic control and decaying reality. Parabiosis swells with a futuristic undertow, dishing out well-placed metallic lashings of cinematic synth sounds and heavily programmed, cut-up drumstorms that combine in fits of chaos and technical wizardry, unleashed in varying degrees of wrathe. The album is dark, conceptually cyber occult, and well-crafted, with Fate Æffect’s exceptional production abilities safely delivering us from start to finish.

An album that will put you out of your comfort zone, the rough futuristic soundscapes of Parabiosis seep in with blasts of complexity and overwhelming tenacity. Like a Siren on treacherous rocks, unceremoniously followed by the inevitably brutal impact, Parabiosis morphs, lures, persists, destroys and deliberates on a surreal, creeping paranoia.

Throwback Thursday with The Scullamooks...

The ScullaMooks are a Melbourne based two-piece band producing on-the-fly, brain-melting psychedelia.
Their music is unique, rich and eclectic. The ScullaMooks fuse a traditional sequenced/pre-determined style with the natural spontaneity and energy of live improvisation. This marriage lends to a life and energy rarely, if ever, found in Electronic Dance Music with a set BPM. All samples, effects and bass are triggered or faded in ʻreal time ʼ. The drums, kick and keyboard are played live. Nothing is quantized or beat corrected. Nothing is over-dubbed. And above all this, everything is improvised. This is how the ScullaMooks get their unique sound. Real life breathed into the coldness of the digital medium.

From Jack Pilven...
"Things get trippy on here – real trippy. Snippets of LSD-inspired meanderings preface heaving slabs of electronica that bubble beneath the surface before disappearing into the abyss again. Otherworldly beeps, blips, and bursts of noise rain down and sizzle over throbbing bass grooves. Each track is accompanied by its BPM, with most whizzing by around the 130 to 140 mark. It’s all a little disorientating – but that’s the desired effect. The ScullaMooks want to warp your perception of reality without the use of mind-altering substances. Instead, they rely on improvisation, experimentation and mixing ideas together like watercolour to create mind-fucking soundscapes, from the eerie interstellar haze of Earthrise to the bongo-happy Mook Runs The Mushroom Down. Proceedings have an organic feel too with each track slowly contorting into the next."

Interview in Beat Magazine

Slice Records chat about their upcoming Geotech 2 party and the diversity of electronicFounders of Slice Records, Cristian Verna, James Woodcock and Gareth Fox met through mutual friends and bonded over shared musical interests.

By Kate Streader

From there, “the triad of Slice”, as they now call themselves, decided to form the record label as a way to release their own music, which progressed into an avenue for showcasing other local acts.

“Really, it was a platform for us to play our own music. We were finding it difficult to get gigs with some of the bigger labels so we thought ‘If they can do it, why can’t we do it?’ ” says Woodcock. “We’ve been making music for ten years now, and over that time we’ve become friends with a lot of artists who have similar feeling in regards to that they want to play their music, we want to be able to play our music, and it was built from that.

“It was more of an excuse to give ourselves some gigs and at the same time, bring together all the things we appreciate in the electronic scene,” says Verna. “Locally more so than anything,” Woodcock adds.

“A love of wanting to showcase our creativity and also arts. People who do graphic design and do really cool stuff also mingle with those guys. They show their artworks at the events.”

Slice Records focuses on underground electronic artists, with the label featuring an array of diverse acts across the multi-faceted genre. The label also shines a light on graphic designers and visual artists. Slice Records have now set their sights on creating events to combine these two elements and provide exposure for local talent.

“Being electronic producers ourselves, we tend to look for artists out there who are doing really interesting things and new stuff,” says Verna. “We like building gigs around our tastes. We make a gig that we would like to go see.”

“One gig could be more techno-orientated and then the next gig we have under the same event heading might be a chill night, then we might go more industrial. There’s a lot of various styles that we like,” says Woodcock.

Slice Records will be hosting Geotech 2, an event that aims to showcase Melbourne electronica acts and visual artists. The Slice team hope to make the show a monthly event.

“With this next Geotech, we’re keeping it very eclectic [and] dance orientated. We’ve got a couple of acts who are doing a lot of live electronica, we’ve got producers and DJs who are playing their own material,” says Verna. “As much as it’s a night that’s showcasing different artists around Melbourne, we also want to put on a good party for everybody to have fun.

“We’ve got Trickbox headlining, and Michael Scarlett from Culture Jam – he puts on all live orientated performances where he builds this set as he goes, it’s very improv and a hundred percent live, which is the type of electronica that we definitely love to showcase with these Geotech nights. It’s more focused on live performance electronic.”

“And there’s some DJs as well, like myself. I make my own music but just to say I’m more confident with DJing my own tracks than putting together a live set at this stage. We have a mash of that sort of thing,” says Woodcock. “And then we have a very live act called Sikander and they’re world music sort of stuff, they have wavedrums, a sitar and guitar, and saxophone.”

“Electronica is very diverse so we don’t like to just have a night that’s completely dedicated to one type of music, we definitely like to change it up. With Geotech 3, that’s going to be quite a darker night with a lot of industrial/break, so expect more experimental styles of electronica,” says Verna. “We’ve got a really nice lineup for that, a lot of producers and artists on that list that I admire so I’m really looking forward to that one.

“And then we’ve got a chill party in August with Kerensa [Stephens], she’s coming up from New Zealand, so it’s going to be a more ambient, chill night from the doom and gloom that we’re going to experience with Geotech 2 – a nice little come down."

Catch Geotech 2 on Saturday July 1, Geotech 3 on Saturday July 29 and Geotech 4 on Saturday August 12, all at Bar 303.

His work is a vessel for musical experimentation and inspiration unrestricted by genre, flirting with a range of electronic styles from industrial, dark techno, weird bedroom beats and electronica, breakcore to noise/ambient.

LazyboyProactive - 'In Space, In Time And In Life' [SLICE008]

Slice Records is very proud to announce its 8th release with an an epic conceptual album from Lazyboyproactive called 'In Space, In Time And In Life'.

Lazyboyproactive is a live Electronica outlet for Melbourne singer, songwriter, and producer, Ank Juwaheer, AKA "Ankie."

Five years after the release of the Kaos Dream, LazyboyProactive has become a sensational live electronic music act, combining progressive, tech and pop sensibilities with live vocals, guitars, synths and stunning visuals.

This album transports the listener into a sonic journey from start to finish. Composed like a symphony, in a 1-3-5 minor progression, all the tracks are linked through the chord progressions. With complex melodies and time signatures this musical masterpiece will impress the modern listener in this day and age. The album although very contemporary and innovative in its sound production is also kind of an old school seventies concept.

The albums features songs like Undermental, Runaway and Supersonic that have a pop rock twist and Electro house tracks like Glitched Monkey and Take this greed that will make the punters dance. It also features chilled out tracks like Parallel earth, Obsession and Future Species.

The eclectic combination of genres and styles makes the album take the listener through a journey In Space, In time and In life.

This material was produced and recorded in bedrooms, various friends living rooms, hotel rooms, home alone or various spacious and sheds around Melbourne and throughout Canada using a diverse range of software plugins, whatever hardware was available at the time and off the cuff production techniques.
Replicated Dreams [Part 2] is vessel for the continuation of Fate Æffect’s eclectic expression of the psychedelic and surreal and is the follow up to Replicated Dreams (Part 1) out on Tempest Recordings: tempestrecordings.bandcamp.com/alb…/replicated-dreams-part-1

New to Slice - Iderdown

We would like to announce a new artist to Slice - Iderdown is a one person electronic act based in Toronto (Canada), crafting music with an occasionally indelicate hand. Wading on the edge of slow erosion, the music (composed of textured synths, pierced beats, effected guitar and blatant melodies) pushes towards an immersive sonic landscape.

Mastering is almost complete on Iderdown's LP "Astable Thought" which is due out in the coming weeks. In the mean time check out his music and live sets here.

Slice has a lot planned for 2016 so far and we are all excited about the new artists and projects ahead of us, it's going to be a great year!

Stepping Inwards - SLICE 004

Stepping Inwards was a collaboration in the summertime of 2014 between James Woodcock (Jimmi-Woods) and Luke Horsfall (Dr Squiggle) that has now ended with the two artists focusing on their solo acts. Even though now defunct , the projects sheer quality demands its release.

Stepping Inwards is a journey into the realm of psychedelic techno. From the humble confines of the bedroom studio Luke and James chanted an incantation of the hypnotic, anodised with a layer of brooding intensity. As your hips begin to shake, the music proceeds to cross the blood brain barrier. Each track becomes a neuro-tropical landscape, comprised of deep tech rhythms accompanied by powerful peaks and enchantingly elongated sounds. As the music progresses from track to track this album is bound to stimulate your cerebellum and make you crave the call of the dancefloor.
Download the album here, it's pay what you want!
https://slicerecords.bandcamp.com/album/stepping-inwards

Stepping Inward’s sound captures elements of Techno, Psy and Prog, with their musical inspiration being drawn from artists such as Monolake, Son Kite, Kliment, Claude Von Stroke, Tetrameth, and Sensient, just to name a few.

60 Road Studios - Siem Reap, Cambodia

Whilst in Siem Reap, Cambodia we had the opportunity to visit one of the best recording studios in South East Asia - "60 Road Studios" and got to sit in on tracking for an original Khmer rock band. An experience we won't forget anytime soon! The studio is top of the line, with a great post production suit, sound acoustics, chill out area, workshop, you name it. If you are thinking of recording or getting music mixed overseas this is the place to go. Cheers Steve Bloxham, Ian & Clive!

HIGHLY EVOLVED ORGANISMS -The official After Party of Chrysalis 2015

The Tribal Society in conjunction with Offworld Productions and Slice Records presents:

HIGHLY EVOLVED ORGANISMS
-The official After Party of Chrysalis 2015-

After successfully completing many of the mission objectives at the recent winter gathering, we would like to invite all you highly evolved organisms to celebrate once more together, to rekindle our associations and friendships and to make new and meaningful connections.

The playground this time around will be the infamous 'Rubix' warehouse venue located in the gritty, urban quarters of Brunswick. The musical entertainment promises to be one that shouldn't be missed.

We feel extremely privileged to welcome to the line-up two masterful producers/performers from the global scene who have confirmed to headline the massive local support program.

Matthew Swain aka EVIL OIL MAN (Zenon, U.K.) and Diego Simonetti aka KNOBS (Nachtstrom, ITA) are thrilled to showcase their latest productions and skills in order to take all of us up a notch in our collective journey of heightening awareness and evolving consciousness.

Check out their music here:

Doors will open Saturday evening from 1700 hours onwards and closing of the event will be at 0200 hours Sunday morning.

Until 2100 hours we will treat you to a $10 discounted admission plus special food and beverage deals courtesy of Rubix management which make the prospect of not preparing a meal at home a very affordable and convenient option. From 2100 onwards the admission will be a fair $20.

Our sincere advise would be to get there early, claim the deals and secure yourself entry before the venue reaches capacity.

The support line-up and further info will be released this weekend. Stay tuned... ;-)
