The next release on Eotrax will round off a busy 2018 for the label and set out an exciting proposition for a future way of working and releasing music. In what will be an ongoing, curated collaborative series artists will be invited to make work together for the label, without restrictions on genre, style or aesthetics. An open environment of collaboration and experimentation which will then be released by the label. To launch this series label head Eomac teams up with four different artists over four slabs of vinyl, to be released sequentially over four months. The collaborations are improvised and composed, wild and emotive, unexpected and expected and all of them resulting in music that would never have been made by either artist individually.

First up is a two-tracker from techno powerhouse and self confessed ‘noisician’ Paula Temple and Eomac. On the A-side the synth heavy ‘Gestirn’ takes inspiration from Autechre’s classic ‘Eutow’, driving forward with a broken beat while celestial melodic lines reach skyward to unknown realms. The B-side introduces a wilder beast, with the ferocious, pummelling techno of ‘Kralle’.

Further collaborations will come from multi-instrumentalist Seán Carpio and Eomac who have created a dense ecology of feedback, clicks, rhythms and noise. Mexican producer, film director and Motus Records owner Demian Licht and Eomac create celestial music combining choral samples and shifting tempi. Lastly, Kamikaze Space Programme and Eomac’s session takes inspiration from grime, dub, jungle and abstract noise.
Vinyl release drops on September 21st, and he whole package will be released digitally in early 2019.
