L V K K - Stromgragment
Released on 30th of September 2022
Vinyl, edition of 200
L V K K is inspired by stonemasons not only because of the spelling of his name. Besides solidly asphalted roads, he is mainly interested in what lies by the wayside: Gravel, lumps of stone, weeds and rubbish of all kinds. His music is based on a dense foundation of low frequencies, to which abrupt impulses, particles and fragments expand crashingly into the periphery. Like a cloud of dust, this multi-layered sound sculpture is surrounded by shimmering and vibrating noises.
The music on the debut album Stromfragment is characterised by low-fi samples and field recordings that are combined, arranged and mixed to create an immersive sound experience. The whole thing takes place in a sonically industrial environment, which is reinterpreted by melodic synth sounds into a place to dance. The low tempo of the tracks, which is unusual for the genre, is given an unusually progressive drive by the steadily progressing compression.
