IXVLF -  Involuntary Movement

IXVLF is back at it again following the Language Of mini-album released earlier this year as part of our ongoing tape series. Pushing it further from where we last left off, Connor Clasen’s vinyl debut reflects our ever growing desire to re-interpret club music in its most primitive and cartilaginous nature. While cleverly obscuring any reference to a specific period of time, Involuntary Movement shows a sense of the American-based producer stretching disorienting imagery over the existing landscape of proto-industrial — matching the visual interpretation of Ailsa Ogden undertaking the artwork by way of a new collaboration — where unpolished synthesizers and rhythm machines collide and bawl in a controlled crash. It is an exercise of existing in various states of detachment; a fixation on mechanical repetition and unpredictable behaviors through the haze of helium laughter. Definitely one for the animals.

IXVLF - Language Of

Fresh addition to the growing label family, Bethlehem’s Connor Clasen alias IXVLF debuts on the label with Language Of providing the second installment of the year in our tape series. Flowing between colorful invocations of primitive house and unsettling minimal exploration, Clasen developed a peculiar approach in his music-making by triggering industrial meditations through his insatiable fascination with electronic experiments and performance; ranging from physical manipulation of machines to capturing the nervous movement of acid, noise and the feeling of metal reverberation. It resulted in this mini-album consisting in six cuts of buzzing kicks and distorted vocals — borrowing as much industrial folklore as well as more traditional electronic body music — showing the ability of the American producer to reinterpret past and current trends in an unusual way.
