E-SAGGILA - Corporate Cross

"E-Saggila is an enigmatic cult producer in electronics, constructing soaring calm from dynamic turbulence as the era of domesticated destruction and creation arrives. Conceived by Iraqi-born, Canadian sound artist Rita Mikhael, E-Saggila has quickly established itself as an unapologetic presence in superseding divisionism in underground music. With prior crucial releases on Northern Electronics and BANK Records, the project quickly gained attention among the disparate factions of noise, breakcore, and infrastructure rising outside of the traditional European club superstructure. After delivering a commanding and highlight performance at the 2019 Hospital Fest, E-Saggila forged an alliance with Hospital Productions and presents her label debut, Corporate Cross, an intricate multifaceted double album that requires introspection with its wide spectrum of emotion, coldness, and light that defies definition. Combining elements of breakcore, ambient, contemporary composition, and twisted rhythms, the album provides a deep headphone listen that can function both as elemental elevation or wreck any club system. Heavy cut-up bass is immediate and but never overrides detailed abstract melodic hooks. E-Saggila creates music that coexists on the dancefloor, the car stereo and the bedroom bookshelf speakers, simultaneously and seamlessly. The composer took inspiration from social anthropologist Mary Douglas, particularly in regards to her concepts of "dirt" which associates dirt as a form of disruption to order. E-Saggila takes this concept in compressed surreal washes of melody noise and merciless drum building hierarchy deconstruction. In the artist's own words: "This album is a framework of placement and displacement of what I recognize as organic and instinctive. The constructed sounds draw a parallel between primalism and mechanization, where structure and disorder mimic themselves through these titles. A lot of these ideas are based off of the environment I come in contact with and the familiar expression and tone that is set into this album. It's a narration of transparent rhythms and patterns I see as natural, but to the listener is observed as ambiguous. Corporate Cross scans through the themes of novelty in human and animal, endemic and deterioration, and the sub-systems of our concealed environment." Throughout these concise and powerful eight tracks, melodies and textures juxtapose with sound events for a euphoric convergence. Each track maintains and explores a different facet of sound while maintaining an overall arc that grips the listener from start to finish, a true narrative without the "ambient" filler that proliferates currently." - Hospital Productions.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
