Comphusion Release Night!!! 29th of March - Recyclart



A couple of months ago I said the second coming had begun, so I'm happy to announce that Comphusion is not only releasing tapes, we're also dropping the first wax on the 29th of March.. To mark our entrance in in the world of vinyl we're releasing a DOUBLE ALBUM from 6Blocc aka R.A.W aka Skanx and a 45-SINGLE from DJ K + a BREAKBEAT-CASSETTE from Dj K. All this on our label-night over at Recyclart in Brussels. 



 ANCIENT SICKNESS - LIVE (BE)

The collaboration between the two founders of Comphusion: Ancient Delay & Dj SickSickSick’s joint project. Starting from improvisation with the four generations of Buddha-machines then slowly adding different layers of carefully chosen frequencies to the mix.  They create a powerful psychedelic collage of dark, ambient soundscapes. Recently started to expand their sounds with heavy distorted drums and percussion.

FIRE AT WORK - LIVE (Rome, Italy)

Fire at work is an experimental/electronic music duo founded in Rome on 1999 by Fabrizio Rossi and Fabio Recchia. They started releasing in 2001 on Idroscalo Digitale, soon other labels followed (Cavage, Scene Missing, Synapsivinile, Chairwarmer, Bias Japan). In 2003 they started their own label called STIRPE999.They are now sharing releases with Venetian Snares, Somatic Respones, D’Arcangelo and Marco Passarani.
They toured in France; UK ; Germany; Belgium ; Austria, Ceck Rep.; Japan; Colombia and Mexico. Since this year they are collaborating with Italian Consolate in Germany, MIKZ in Berlin and Comphusion in Belgium.

R.A.W. vs 6BLOCC vs SKANX (LA,USA)

R.A.W. aka 6BLOCC is known for his relentless techniques behind the wheels of steel. Getting his start back in 1985, this dj is no amateur when it comes to tuntablizm. He was already battling local djs in Los Angeles before the modern dj culture was even created. R.A.W. began playing at major raves and underground events throughout the west coast around 1988. His sound at the time was a blend of jungle, hiphop, turntablizm and hardcore sounds which made him an instant draw in the underground scene. By the mid-90′s R.A.W. was traveling all over the world rocking crowds with his signature sound of urban jungle choonz and b-boy turntable tactics. His discography has reached over 50 vinyl releases and a plethora of mixtape / mix-cd releases that sell out throughout the year. By 2007 R.A.W reinvents himself as 6BLOCC. When he isn’t on the road or in the air flying to various clubs and events throught out the world, he is managing his digi-label DIGITAL 6 and knocking out dubstep remixes and originals. Skanx is the latest musical project by this bass music veteran.Skanx began production on 140 jungle / J-tek tunes and quickly made noise through his SoundCloud via free downloads of classic jungle / rave tracks. The resurrected junglist is here to bring the jungle back to life with his signature rudeboy bass,
streetwise riddims and hip hop / ragga influences.
We are very proud to have him releasing, for the very first time, as R.A.W. vs 6BLOCC vs SKANX, pressed on a limited double vinyl album for Comphusion Records.

DJ K (Ottawa, Canada)

DJ K is a Newschool Jungle DJ & Producer. He has been prolific in the jungle / drum & bass scene since 1999 starting in Canada and North America and has been touring Europe since 2008. DJ K became famous from releases in the early millenium on N2O and Big Cat Records and later on other labels, as well as over 100 unreleased tracks played only at live shows. KILLA RECORDS is DJ K’s record label featuring his own style of Jungle, aggressive basslines, quick cuts, sudden drops and centered amen anthems with and without ragga vocals. Specially for the Junglist Survival Tour with R.A.W. Comphusion presents a his first limited 7″ and a mixtape (yes, on cassette!), available for the first time on this night in Recyclart.

WASTED MATTER Live vs Dr.GREENCHEESE (BE)

Dr. Green Cheese who explores the contemporary ‘futuristic bass’ will join the decks with Wasted Matter with a blasting set of dancefloor madness filled with hiphop, dubstep, breakcore, IDM and glitchcore. Chopped, mixed and chained through effects for maximum impact.

ACID KIRK - LIVE (BE)

Acid Kirk his real name is Cédric Stevens. He is considered as one of the most talented artists (both producer and DJ) from the Brussels underground techno scene. Since 2004 mainly into (making) noise and avant-garde productions. Between 1993 and 1997 he produced over a dozen records and regularly performed at most of the clubs and dance events like Fuse, Rave Explosion, Cherry Moon. He was also frequently booked to play abroad in a number of the world’s major cities – New York, Melbourne, Paris (Rex Club), Rome, Vienna, Berlin (Love Parade) and Amsterdam (Melkweg) – often sharing the bill with many of the biggest international DJs. In 1997, driven by his growing interest in free jazz, alternative, psychedelic ambient and experimental music - and the avant-garde in general – he co-founded Elf Cut records and assumed the role of art director for the label. He also launched his new project: “The Syncopated Elevators Legacy” (S.E.L.), with which he would go on to explore fresh sonic horizons. Cédric recently dusted off his Acid Kirk alter ego to reprise his experiments in the progressive acid techno domain and – for the next couple of years at least – has be DJing at various events. A new EP titled “Out of the Blew” was released in January 2010, co-released by the labels First Cask and Wémé. This time we get spoiled, for the very fist time in years, with a live acid/braindance set! Not to miss!

MR. GASMASK - LIVE (BE)

Mr. Gasmask got hooked on acid around 1995 and joined the Christmas Kitchen Lab.
His uncontrolled 303 abuse brought about an addiction to sour beats and he worked his ass off for that squelchy sound since 1999 at which time he teamed up with Sid.A as Emetic. Quality time with Arkanoid resulted into the launch of Binary Bassline Records in 2002. Alliances with Ege Bam Yasi, Dr. Fernando, Woody McBride, Mike Dred, Citric Acid lead to even worse acid abuse and Binary Bassline went into hibernation as Mr. Gasmask went into a live-show overdose. Rehab followed through releases on various labels. This caused an addiction relapse by more live-show abuse and the birth of Protocol records as a form of mental therapy. In 2013 Comphusion and Protocol are joining forces. Therefore we invited the Master himself to finish the night in style.
On this event we will present the first wax! Check the VINYL section of the site!
Pre-orders get a nice reduction when purchasing the records before release date!

Cedric Stevens (BE)
Cédric Stevens' career began in 93 as a DJ and techno producer under the pseudonym "Acid Kirk". He quickly established himself as a pivotal figure in the Belgian underground, producing over a dozen 12’’ and EPs. In 97, driven by his growing interest in experimental music, he launched his side project: "The Syncopated Elevators Legacy" (S.E.L.). From experiments in electric currents and serpent patching (Siamese Level EP) to his own take on ‘musique concrete’ (Still Between the Battle & the Sheet EP) S.E.L.’s sound never ceased to investigate the most improbable sound sources as compositional tools. Just fresh of re-releasing an acclaimed anthology of his past work with remixes from Fennesz, My Cat Is An Alien, Burning Star Core and more, Cédric is now focusing his energies on the full potential and dynamic harmonies between drone, noise and pastoral ambient.
