Katrina Fairlee & Sneaker – Oak
on VA – Red /Uncanny Valley UV50.7
    out 24th April 2019

The round number of 50 releases (plus special editions and sub labels) Uncanny Valley will celebrate by a giant series of 7 EPs. As an affiliated artist since UV004 of course I’ve been asked for a submission. Despite the vast amount of tracks spread through 7 records UV didn’t opt for quick decisions. I submitted 4 suggestions (damn it!) before they picked one for the seventh installment of a four-tracker!

Furthermore I am very proud to be involved in this co-operation with a veteran in Leipzigs cultural scene – renowned artist duo Doppeldenk!

Oak is a deep & dirty (direct to cassette), pad-bass-n-808-driven acid house groover I did with Katrina Fairlee in Austin/TX February last year.

The second record for the celebrations of the 50th Uncanny Valley release is peppered with familiar faces and artists who will release for the first time on the Dresden based label. After PINK anticipated the coming summer, RED creates a slightly menacing heat lightning. The perfect soundtrack for the phenomenon that is commonly known as Aurora Polaris.

The American-Australian duo The Golden Filter make their debut on Uncanny Valley. And it’s a tailor-made start. THE PULL is centered around minimalistic drum work, dystopian pads and sparse vocal dots that aim for an inward catharsis. A returnee after eight years is mysterious Mayan Gold from Dresden. His KOMM UND ENTSPANNE (means come and relax) rides on acidic waves and embracing synths, which develop an enormous pull effect on the dance floor.

Norwegian Charlotte Bendiks’ first track on Uncanny Valley continues the sound language she developed on Cómeme. PASCO is a Percussion-heavy track that sounds just as compelling as it is disturbingly beautiful. Music to lose your mind to. Finally, Austin-based artist Katrina Fairlee teams up with Uncanny Valley-stable Sneaker for the psychedelic drum lesson that is OAK.

The 7 EPs will dropped one by one IN NO ORDER throughout this year – the first one is coming soon:
