Acronym w. Korridor – Untitled LP (VAA03)
“Back in 2015, two of Sweden’s most coveted electronic musicians quietly collaborated. The outcomes where complied and made available via a trifling 20 self release tapes, circulated by the duo during an event in Lithuania that same year.
Soon after, a few of the tapes showed up in the second hand market occasionally trading hands for staggering prices, yet who ever came across one of the tape rips circulating the web quickly understood what the commotion was all about; brittle noise sequences and industrial laden overtones where contrasted against perplexingly rich dub techno arrangements and uplifting ambient soundscapes. The two tape sides contained densely interwoven material which both, reflected on the duos habitual outcome while also showcasing the two explore and express a new sonic thematic that was swelling in the concurring Swedish tape scene.
In the end, the entire release felt like a strikingly personal glimpse into the esteemed duo’s creative minds and to this day, it remains their only released collaborative endeavor.
Now, 3 years later, Vaagner is proud to finally present this sought after cassette release, digitally and on vinyl for the first time.”
“Our goal remains to share noteworthy releases from various tape communities around the globe and readdress these releases from a alternate standpoint, subsequently making them approachable to a new crowd of listeners.
Our love for the original tapes always remain and we treat each re-issue, both visually and sonically, not as an enhancement but as a complementary augmentation of the original material, hence our re-issues will not always be exact copies of the original releases, we work together with the artist(s) and give them the space to re-approach their work in any chosen manner they see appropriate.
In this case the B side was chosen to be slightly edited and the Bonus track ‘Sscending’, which was conceived during the time of the original tape, was added onto the release.”
