Orton Socket

99 explosions

Label: Moikai

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

In stock


"Orton Socket is mainly comprised of main-man and mouthpiece Rob Mazurek, known for blowing horns (as well as eardrums and minds etcetera) on a variety of efforts by Stereolab, Isotope 217, his own Chicago Underground Duo, and some other folks you probably have’nt heard of. Plus Rob's done a series of records under his own name. See, he's been a spotlight kid for years now. But for 99 Explosions, Rob has reemerged incognito, armed with synthesizer and powerbook, wearing the shimmering cloak of Orton Socket.

The results, shall we interject, are outstanding. More in line with Nuno Canavarro's Plux Quba and Aki Tsuyuko's Ongakushitsu than Bill Dixon and Albert Ayler, 99 Explosions reveals a poet in the making a tone poet, that is. Truly, the man is not limited by an embouchure. Fans of Mazurek and the soon to be named 'melancholy electronics' genre will equally be fulfilled by Rob's latest excursion into outer now-ness."
