アメリカのミルウォーキーからニュー・レーベルNataural Anthemesのサード・シングルがリリース！今回はUnfoundsoundでも作品を発表する日本人クリエイターRyo MiyashitaとKazuki MochizukiのHiiragiによるコラボレーション・シングル！エキスペリメンタルなエレクトロニック・サウンドで複雑なグルーヴを作り出すディープ・テックハウス・トラック！注目です！！
Tokyo-based artists Ryo Miyashita and Kazuki Mochizuki (aka Hiiragi_) appear to have designed Liberating To The Shape of Nature to function as a mixing tool for other DJs as well as potential source material for art installations and multimedia performances, but it also can be listened to as a five-track 12-inch of sample- and DSP-based character. Side A features three "Float" variations starting with a brightly swinging shuffle that sails through a tunnel of crackle and owl noises. That same owl-like theme chirps throughout "Float2" with the tune now dominated by a barrage of percussive clicks while "Float4" retains the jubilant spirit and pulse of its siblings but dramatically ups the noise and glitch ante--Autechre by way of Merck might be one way of describing it. The most memorable piece is side two's opener "Deco" which, notwithstanding some obsessive squirrelly chatter, is distinguished by a forcefully strutting mid-tempo techno pulse. Of entirely different character is the closer "Waichi" which writhes in seeming agony, ensuring that Liberating To The Shape of Nature will be heard as more of a curio than straight-up techno.
