Präsens Editionen is happy to release 7-Split, a 7inch split-EP presenting two tracks from Basel-based rave connoisseur Fabian Peña.
Fabian Peña is a producer, DJ and promoter from Basel with ties to the local collectives Acc-Ess and Klappfon. Key to his work are different varieties of rave music. This said, he knows absolutely no reservations neither with pop nor with noise and blends everything into his crazy dance mixes.
Präsens Editionen dug deep into his vast archive of tracks and found two gems that are particularly striking: a live recording from a collaborative noise project called –Nilbog and a Mr.Mitch-like peace-dub of Gabber under his Mr.Peña moniker.
As —Nilbog Peña approaches—together with collaborator Jan Kunz aka L.A.B. —noise and rhythms with a very specific set of rules, while at the same time trying to break out of them. “Liverecording 02/11/16“ is an example of this polar approach: an ever-changing, unpredictable and as-harsh-AND-fun-as-it-gets piece of music.
On the flipside Mr.Peña lets loose, aiming at hardcore dance floors while balancing between fight-or-flight terror and pacifying joy. It is a fact: “TMC (The Markt Chornicles)” is the sweetest thing that’ll tear you apart this year.
PE-009 will be released as a 7inch, edition of 300 copies, and features a special artwork by Peña and Kunz.
