DELETE THE BINARY / EMBRACE THE BREAKBEAT:

On their journey into sonic fiction, Arcane Patterns returns with "Ground Poetics". The 4-track remix EP of the label‘s first release „When Grounds Shift“ by aphtc features remixes by NYC based producer Kellen303, Berlin's bass innovator Orson, and AP founders Kl.ne and CRΞSC.

By reconstructing the post-jungle inspired aphtc tracks from 120 to 140 bpm, the artists reinterpret low freq sound system music informed by visceral body politics, a sardonic sense of doom, and post-pandemic futurism.

aphtc return to Arcane Patterns with a two-track single for their second release.

Title-track 'Rewind The Subject' is a stripped-back, anxious roller sitting at 130bpm, with modulated subs and panicked percussion.
Flip the record for the B-side 'Becoming None', which filters distorted think-breaks among a frenzy of razor-sharp stabs that scythe through the tweeters.

QUOTES:
"tightly crafted roller with gripping bass and percussion" (DJ Mag)

"that ganja/narco dread shit that makes me skank” (Nevan Jio, DDR)

Arcane Patterns` first release is the 12” When Grounds Shift by the duo aphtc is a visceral trip into a sonic fiction, in which everything is out of balance. Rhythms take over your sensory system in order to resonate in a new way and your muscles are tricked by spontaneous desires. While the intricate breakbeat on When Grounds Shift (The Otolith Is Obsolete) create a dialogue with the genderless vocals samples, counterpointed by sudden strikes of visceral subbass, the jungle inspired B side Gravity`s Pitfalls starts with clusters of atonal clouds peaking in a trembling bass drop followed by polymetric drum patterns that sketch spaces of radical autonomy. Inspired by the aesthetics of the Hardcore Continuum and the sonic language of noise and bassmusic, this idiosyncratic record takes a great step forward to shape a colourful future.
