about

Reissue by EE Tapes of our limited cassette from 1996.
A coöperation between Matthias Lang (Irre Tapes, Germany) and De Fabriek.

This is the 3rd and last special release for the 35th anniversary of EE Tapes!

The history for this release goes back quite a few years. First, there is the collaboration between De Fabriek and Mr Moto. If you have no idea who or what De Fabriek is, then you haven't been paying attention in the last years, but Mr Moto, that is a different story. I don't think I ever reviewed work by Matthias Lang, Mr Moto himself and head-honcho of Irre Tapes before. His story goes back to the 80s when he started his label. Oddly enough, I am sure I never heard much of the music he created. In 1996, he
recorded work with De Fabriek, released on cassette by Belgium's EE Tapes. They now re-release this cassette, on CD, in an edition of 100 copies. It is a bit unclear who is doing what on this cassette. I could hazard a guess, but then, I rather not. Bandcamp says they meet on neutral ground, implying shared responsibility in mixing and editing. In the wonderful tradition of De Fabriek, there is a lot of synthesizer music, building on that fine cosmic/kraut tradition which is a very core of De Fabriek, but this time with quite a few sequencers running amok. The music is more on the experimental side of the cosmic wall. None of these synthesizers bounces around in a neat arpeggio style. Maybe that is an artistic choice or something inherent to how they use their equipment (or the lack thereof!). There is some rudimentary sampling going on here, and that adds a very early 90s cassette vibe to the music. It is all a bit too long before something new kicks in or driving by just
insufficient sound sources. I enjoy this kind of thing a lot. Maybe it is the older man getting sentimental, reminding me of too many things (and too private for a review). Who knows? Great! (FdW, Vital Weekly aug. 2022)
