LapCore Vol. 1

Ooops was ist das? 
Tingeltangeltechno mit Computerwahnsinn auf 99 Umdrehungen pro Minute? 
Der erste Track "NoseBleed" rockt mit satten 160bpm in einem 
ueberschwenglichen Technosound voller Kleinstgeklimper, 
"Pneumonic" zittert in trockenen Sounds in aehnlicher Geschwindigkeit 
mit staendig bedrohtem Rhythmus flackernder Euphorie, die 
etwas ziellos davonsegelt und dann langsam einen 
eigenwilligen Groove entwickelt. 
(Auf der Webseite gibt es einen Akira Rabelais Remix des Tracks). 
Die Rueckseite beginnt mit einem etwas ausgehoehlten 
hymnischen Track der ein wenig daran erinnert, 
dass Kent, von dem die Tracks alle stammen, 
irgendwie aus einem Off heraus zu produzieren scheint, 
das einer gewissen Art von Sequentialitaet verpflichtet ist, 
die man auch u.a. bei Philippe Cam findet, aber 
dazu dann auch gerne mal soetwas wie ein Gitarrensolo legt. 
Als Abschluss ein Breakiger Track der im gleichen 
trocken kurzhalligen Sound gehalten ist, 
der die EP ein wenig sproede wirken laesst.

[6:33] NoseBleed.mp3 (6.1 MB) NoseBleed features raging hallucinatory synth lines riding over 156 beats on the floor pumping sub bass hard techno vein beats. Over the course of the track the dynamic time slicing algorithms begin to mix up the driving rhythmic forces creating a nicely evolving dance texture. Sounds also great pitched down to 142 BPM.
[4:56] Pneumonic.mp3 (4.6 MB) At 142 BPM Pneumonic offers endless creative possibilities for advanced DJ's and remixers with it's shifting catchy beats, spektralized build-ups, and syncopated filter sequences.
[6:32] FindYou.mp3 (6.1 MB) Simple harmonies merge spectra together over a straight-up down-tempo beat. The effect is a melodic catchy LapCore LOUNGE TEXTURE, with plenty of room for mixing parts over but also sounds great stand-alone.
[5:00] SxeBtch.mp3 (4.7 MB) SxeBtch is a tight and dry breakbeat experiment built out of Reaktor3. The source samples come from Prince's "Sexy Dancer" and Miles Davis' "Bitches Brew" The rest is 142 BPM pure LapCore.

----REMIXES----

[5:37] Pneumonic_ar_rmx.mp3 (5.4 MB) Akira Rabelais was so very kind as to submit an unsolicited remix of one of our favorite tracks: Pneumonic. Akira cleverly (re)combines the lush soundscape of Pneumonic with his own dystopic sense of groove madness. We love his work and are very grateful for his fully great contribution. We hope you enjoy this remix as much as we do. Visit his insanely cool site: Akira Rabelais.
[5:56] SxeBtch_HearMeCall.mp3 (5.7 MB) When I was in Bremerhaven to perform rEtRO fUtURA I met Baradelan who handed me a CD-rom onto which he had burned this wicked dubstep remix of SxeBtch. I was totally blown away. His remix is fett! NJOY!

6i PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT Sept 9, 2002

6i Announces 6i=EP01 LapCore Vol 1

6i's first release, LapCore Vol 1, is the culmination beat warping,
laptop crushing, software synthesized beat explorations. A venue
for Kent's own brand of beat music (LapCore), this EP features
versions of tracks from Kent's rare live sets during 2001.  These 
tracks are only available on 12" vinyl (6i=EP01) or 128k mp3 audio
at www.u6i.de.  Check the website for availability of the 
vinyl as this is strictly a LIMITED EDITION production run.
Click here for a current list of distributors.


Side A of LapCore Vol 1 is undeniably energy driven.  "A1-NoseBleed" 
features raging hallucinatory synth lines riding over 156 beats on 
the floor pumping sub bass hard techno vein beats.  Over the 
course of the track the dynamic time slicing algorithms begin to
mix up the driving rhythmic forces creating a nicely evolving
dance texture.  Sounds also great pitched down to 142 BPM.

As of release date, "A2-Pneumonic," is the track which has 
had the most success.  A CD remix has been recently made available
on a compilation called "The Art of Programming: Sonic Acts 2001,"
which includes a CD, DVD, and book all containing works from Kent,
as well as Monolake, Scanner, Beta Bodega Collection, Rechenzentrum,
Otto von Schirach, and more.  Also a pre-release mp3 remix of 
"A2-Pneumonic" has been submitted by microsonic ritornell artist 
Akira Rabelais. Akira's remix is available free for download at 
www.u6i.de. At 142 BPM "A2-Pneumonic" offers endless creative 
possibilities for advanced DJ's and remixers with it's shifting 
catchy beats, spektralized build-ups, and syncopated filter sequences.

Side B of LapCore Vol 1 is significantly more laid-back.  In the case
of "B1-FindYou" like down tempo hop even.  Simple harmonies merge 
spectra together over a straight up down tempo beat.  The effect is
a melodic catchy LapCore LOUNGE TEXTURE, with plenty of room for mixing 
parts over but also sounds great stand-alone.

"B2-SxeBtch" was born out of a conversation with Jake Mandell on
pop music form in a techno/electronic dance music context.  After
discussing his strategies for "love songs for machines" with me
we traded some reaktor patches, and presto blammo: a sxeBtch was
born.  she's 142 BPM and Rashad at dubplates and mastering gave 
her that club pumping sound which he's so famous for: thanks man!  
And thanks Jake! www.orange-pink.com

File under: LapCore.  Aside from 6i, and Sonic Acts, Kent's work
can also be heard on the Native Lab Compilation (WMF) and
fals.ch  Please direct any press, booking, remix 
requests, and ordering inquiries to lapcore@u6i.de
