Aion, or Aeon, in the tradition of Greek cosmology, was the personification of Time, with the more famous Kronos, corresponding to Saturn Latin. Revered as “Lord of Light”, Aeon (AION) represented eternity, infinite time, as well as the succession of eras.

Just time talking this new vinyl published by JAM TAXX: somehow it shows how the same song, born in a given context in time and space (a marginal Italy of the late 70s sets in a still immature europe) can be re-interpreted 30 years later with a new spirit, remaining in part what it was originally, but also becoming another completely new thing (that didn’t exist before) …

The statue of the boxer from the Roman stadium of the marbles, pictured on the cover, is juat Aion represented as an athlete who fights between light and shadow, past and future, divided in half just like in the inner label of this precious vinyl, in sharp contrasts and games of symmetries used in the graphics of this speial edition (white vinyl).

… Heraclitus wrote: “the time (Aeon) of human life is a child who plays his games moving his toys: to a child belongs the sovereign power” What is a remix if not a game where you move elements to create something new? And of course to a child belongs the sovereign power, the demiurgic ability to redefine reality starting from what has been already done. And that child is us.

Limited 12″ Vinyl

Die Brücke

Ideally in transit between yesterday and today, between adolescence and maturity, between an arcadian dimension and a more actual reality made of mirrors and metal, here it is the sonic trip for these two singular characters, Zarkoff and Popsimonova, a taste of sci-fi retro comics, as the bridge of hyena plisskinn in Carpenter ’1997 escape from ny’ or the characters of the bridge of William Gibson, the master of cyberpunk american literature.
The minimal futurstic attitude is deformed, exagerated, distorted, in some case it becomes just a cold expressionism, violent sintetic colors as the sky of Munch, but the scream this time is purely electronic…

The bridge, this eternal symbol of passage, the union of opposite realities, in this case reflected itself in the music, with deep roots that lie in the past (for the analog instrumentation) and then leap into the future, materialized from essential and modernist musical structures. Each human being builds its own bridge, a piece at a time, and so it happens the magic of communication, it takes place. In Die Brucke it happens in the ideal musical dialog between this two singular characters, with their composite way to write songs.

In addition, for the first 100 copies of 12′, a 7 inch with two songs taken from 12′, Wal2Wall and the instrumental Azzurre, remixed and rearranged by L.A.S.’s Crime, another electronic duo borned in ’80s, as a subtle line between past and future. A special edition that will amaze you with its orange vinyl and shining package.

Marbled orange double vinyl, 12”-7”,155 grams for the 12” version.
