about

Shapes of Rhythm welcomes Emanative to the label for his first vinyl project following contributions to its Isolation Compilation and an Awkward Corners EP both earlier in 2020. Known for his love of collaboration, Emanative connected remotely with Bex Burch during the global lockdown. Disrupt #4 is the result of a meeting of two percussive minds in the midst of a pandemic, and like all good things it started with a groove. Nick initially provided Bex with a hazy, 808 african-inspired sketch. What followed was a musical dialogue which quickly gained momentum. A post punk-esque vocal mantra was added, reflecting the here and now of 2020 and driving the track forward. Bex’s trademark Ghanaian Gyil xylophone is the conversation with the groove throughout the track. Hector Plimmer also joins the collaboration, seasoning the mix with synthesizer and tape delays.

Following his stunning Dislocation Songs LP, the label drafted in Awkward Corners AKA Paradise Bangkok’s Chris Menist for a remix on the flip that heads towards the club (remember clubs?). Adding 808s, his own conga recordings, synth lines, a sprinkle of acid and a warped vocal treatment, this is classic Awkward Corners: pumped with feeling and rhythm. If Andrew Weatherall was still with us today he’d be digging Chris’ take on the a-side.

The record and sleeve of Disrupt#4 have been produced "as green as possible" by Deep Grooves in Amsterdam (the greenest vinyl pressing plant in the world).
