On The Corner Records are proud to reveal the second instalment of their newly forged ‘Double Drop’ series, pairing together two EP’s from two different members of the OTC family, delivering a cosmically twinned, action packed slab of wax.
Label boss Pete OtC developed this series to introduce record players around the world to new artists coming through On The Corner’s region of the solar system. With Vinyl manufacture in pandemic pandemonium and questionable environmental impacts of the efficacy of Disco 12”s it seemed like a prime time to get laying the OTC family’s sonic landscapes onto highly collectible long playing EP pairings, with no represses and no compromise on the artwork, each side sporting a 20+ minute audio journey.
On the A-Side, and hot on the heels of the ‘Dub Protection & The Sportswear Mystics’ cassette, The Diabolical Liberties present their ‘Birds Of Paradise’ EP. This EP all but sold-out and follows the dynamite success of the Duo’s debut long player “High Protection & The Sportswear Mystics” and it’s follow-up hype cassette of dubbed out versions (as well as a series of self-released and long sold-out white labels that included collaborations with Nyasha (a moniker of Nubya Garcia) and a super limited On The Corner 10” dubplate.)
On the flip, having debuted on last year’s sold out Triple Vinyl ‘Door To The Cosmos’ LP, Edrix Puzzle are back with a stonking new EP ‘Rise To Eris’. With this new offering, Edrix Puzzle’s core Drums, Sax, Double bass and Percussion are augmented with spoken word, guitar and synths. Project founder and lead, Nathan ‘Tugg’ Curran (Drums & Synths) is joined by long time collaborators Oli Savill (Percussion) and Martin Slattery (Bass Clairnet & Sax) (who are also members of Tugg’s Planet Battagon project), as well as Tom Mason (Double Bass) and Josh Barry (Spoken Word) for this more acoustic, analog expression and surveying of extra terrestrial forms with sparse synth manipulation and a sweet seasoning of electronic affectations. Exploring themes and energies in the territory of noir instrumental jazz the cinematic energy is unpinned with driving breaks and psyche fusion meanderings into the extra terrestrial landscapes akin to ‘Mwandishi’ era Herbie Hancock.
