SANTASEDE - s/t
"First non-privately distributed release on Raymond Dijkstras label since 2009, following a long string of ultra-limited art edition lathe-cuts. An unlikely collaboration between Dijkstra and Tiff Lion, who has done soundtrack work for CSI and The Hunger Games. LP by the duo to follow next year on Dekorder. "The music has an obscure and surreal character hard to categorize. It certainly has filmic qualities, if only as a film of the inner-eye. The music has a psychedelic touch and elements of esotericism by its use of sitar, (primitively played) tabla and highly reverberated string instruments. The reciting of old Italian Alchemistic texts by Tiff Lion links the music further to a dark spirituality. There is a great emphasis on acoustic instrumentation played in a raw manner (among others piano-strings) giving the whole record a very rudimentary character. The use of electronics is done in such a way that its often impossible to divide acoustic and electronic sounds. The electronic instrumentation thus emphasizes the rawness of the acoustic sounds. Highly recommended for lovers of psychedelic music."\r\n"Vanilla white vinyl with dash of brown (every exemplar has a different dash so every exemplar is unique)\r\nVinyl-record weight: 160 grams. 33 Rpm.
