Edition of 200. Uniquely fruitful duo, John Wall and Alex Rodgers beguile again with a brilliant batch of oily glitch-hop and processed vocals in ’Soar’, a book and CD from Antwerp’s finest publishing house, Entr’acte  Just as we were caught out by their ‘Rafia Longer’ 7” in 2015, ’Soar’ finds pivotal London-based artist Wall recalling everyone from Lorenzo Senni to Vladislav Delay and Jay Glass Dubs in the piece’s viscous contours and pinched percussion, while Alex Rodgers supplies the pointed text, delivered in gruff processed tons to sound uncannily like he’s inside the listener’s head, riffing on observations of  self-obsessed society.

John Wall’s granular textures once again manipulate and augment the oblique poetics of Alex Rodgers. The two have been collaborating for well over a decade now, in a gambit for Wall to reshape his creative process through improvisational strategies. Wall’s once meticulously edited samples have become serpentine, liquid, yet unmistakably digital. On Soar, his constructions look back to the glitch- worship electronica of Vladislav Delay, Oval and Pole in their attempts to shed themselves of the trappings of techno. A lounge lizard slink is evident throughout Wall’s brief compositions, allowing plenty of space for Rodgers to gruffly articulate his existential profundities.” Jim Haynes in The Wire
