about

"When Grounds Shift" by the duo aphtc is the first release of the new label Arcane Patterns: a visceral trip into a sonic fiction, in which everything is out of balance. Rhythms take over your sensory system in order to resonate in a new way and your muscles are tricked by spontaneous desires.

While the intricate breakbeat on "When Grounds Are Shifting (The Otolith Is Obsolete)" creates a dialogue with the genderless vocals samples, counterpointed by sudden strikes of visceral subbass, the post-jungle inspired B side "Gravity`s Pitfalls" starts with clusters of atonal clouds peaking in a trembling bass drop followed by polymetric drum patterns that sketch spaces of radical autonomy. Inspired by dialectic breakbeat aesthetics and sonic fiction, aphtc takes a great step forward to shape a colourful future.

Limited to 300 copies with unique artwork which quotes the late great Mark Fisher, this 12" meticulously executes the modern-day UK Techno/Bass sound design with clean tensity and dread. Don't sleep.
