Here’s the first part in Dekorder’s brand new series of highly limited Hybrid-Vinyl 12“ releases to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the label. Future contributions will feature new & exclusive recordings by Leyland Kirby, Excepter, Sonic Boom, Bill Kouligas, Vindicatrix, Kemiallysät Ystävät, Ensemble Economique, Alien Radio, Black To Comm and a few lovely surprises to be revealed in the 2nd half of the year. Hybrid-Vinyl is a newly devised combination of a Picture-Disc and a regular vinyl release. The audio will be cut into the black vinyl side to utilise the superior audio quality of classic vinyl (compared to the often weaker sounding picture disc pressings).
Pye Corner Audio appeared in the public eye around 2010 with a bunch of low-profile bandcamp releases and was discovered by a larger audience in 2012 with albums on Ghost Box and Type Records. Inspired by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Library Music, film soundtracks, Psychedelia and Techno PCA presented his very own hazy and intrinsically haunting version of electronic music.
This new 12“ shows yet another slightly different facet, channeling Detroit Techno & Krautrock influences through a very British Ghost Box filter with two wonderfully tense tracks, especially on the 12-minute climactic “Conical Space“ (one of the best PCA tracks out there so far).
