SBVRSV x Museum of Skin Showcase Teaser

0

The time draws nigh for inculcation of the SBVRSV platform via liberation of digital realities. A showcase of fleshly talents are set to render their cybernated sounds for your consumption this Sunday. We invite you to join us as we entertain the prospect of a renewed futurity with the audio/visual constructions of Graham Kartna, Tigerwing, Fusechild and HUSTLE FLESH to guide us.

A Preview for the Uninitiated:

Graham Kartna (Beer on the Rug, Memory No. 36 Recordings):

The worlds Kartna conjures through lo-fi MIDI manipulations will feel oddly familiar to retro gamers. On releases and “Ideation Deluxe”, Kartna channels the whimsy and retro-kitsch of 90’s PC games and general Windows 95/98 nostalgia. In effect, Kartna’s music acts as a wormhole through which we can return to those long weekends spent playing marathon runs of Dreamcast until 4am and all the feelings of laziness, wonder, and elation that they brought with them. In other words, Kartna is the sonic equivalent of leveling up.

Tigerwing (Drama Hands)

Tigerwing has presence. You can just feel it in the way her vocals drift from dreamy whispers to expressive croons. This is best exemplified on the “Black Light / White Lies” EP, a statement release that sees Tigerwing pushing synth-pop past its outer limits into the realms of rave, footwork and industrial. This innovative approach launches Tigerwing echelons above the traditional “synth pop” artist. With striking ease, she is able to meld “pop” melodies with new forms and styles, a rare talent in the contemporary climate of electronica.

Fusechild

Judging from the UK-centric club & bass stylings of Fusechild’s productions, you’d think he was from the other side of the Atlantic, however, as it turns out, he is indeed a resident of the GTA. This makes Fusechild all the more distinctive insofar as the genres he dabbles in (jungle, breakbeat, drum & bass) are often overlooked or neglected by Canadian audiences. Being an outlier of the UK scene, Fusechild has no regional allegiances, allowing him the freedom to employ an array of different styles, sometimes all within the same track.

HUSTLE FLESH (Museum of Skin)

Like Graham Kartna, Museum of Skin kingpin HUSTLE FLESH takes video game scores and sound effects as the source material for his music. However, where Kartna’s approach tends towards pastiche, HUSTLE FLESH takes a turn down more abstract alleyways. His tracks often play like digital sketches, evoking fragmented moods and settings. At times, we get downtempo, beat-heavy funk and others, eerie post-industrial noise-club. You never really know what you’re going to get with HUSTLE FLESH, he likes to change it up with every release. His latest ‘REMNANT PSYCHE’ is set to be released at the end of this month and if the teaser tracks are any indication, it is going to be HUSTLE FLESH’s deepest digital journey yet.
