Description

Ambitious and captivating; expansive, textured and unique, this is the sound of Herd.

Since we began our record label, like the radio show and blog from which it spawned, we’ve never been just one style, one sound.

Since 2007 via several net based labels, Herd has worked on a multi-part series of ‘Tangents’ – abstract experimental electro, ambient electronica and drone soundscape material. ‘Arteater’ continues in that vein of sonic tapestry, yet is very much its own complete piece. Herd’s influence is drawn from many places, most obviously that of Future Sound of London. Impressed enough were they the duo have released material of his via their own FSOLdigital imprint.

Pushing the limits of vinyl recording length we cut close to 20 minutes a side of sound without comprising on quality. We work closely with our mastering and cutting engineers, none more so than on this release.

We could continue writing fancy, descriptive words, but as with all our releases, we let our music do the talking, and there’s a lot to hear in this one.

Bleep.com "Scottish production duo Savagen mark their debut with a truly abrasive EP. The rotten fox that makes up the artwork sets the tone for Savagen's abusive and ruthless structures of rhythm. Overdriven synths spread darkness and distortion on the EP’s title track. 'RT2' follows the broken rhythms of its predecessor and 'Indoor Puncture' ties in with its sawing aesthetic and robotically punching beat. This is resumed in 'Roughten Pounder' which flaunts the EP's sheer levels of brutality." Surgeon (Downwards, Rinse FM, Tresor) "I really like the weird Wound Up Tight track on there." Rinse FM radio rip AnD (Inner Surface Music, Electric Deluxe, Ann Aimee) "new Savagen release is dope. Great EP… we like it a lot! All tracks are strong but RT2 and Practical Education (Practically Educated Mix 2) really stand out for us. We like the broken rhythms and textures." Truss (Avian, Perc Trax, R&S Records) "Whole EP is wicked, Indoor Puncture and Practical Education are my favs" Tomohiko Sagae (Rodz Konez, HueHelix) "very cool EP." Sunil Sharpe (Earwiggle, Works The Long Nights) "sounds great – proper clanging broken techno with a healthy injection of anger!" Swarm Intelligence  (Acre Recordings, Ad Noiseam, Krake) "Banging EP – 'Indoor Puncture' is prob the pick for me." Warlock (Rag n Bone, Kool London) "these are proper twisted and heavy. 'Indoor Puncture' and 'Roughten Pounder' particularly." Stormfield (Combat Recordings, Electronic Explorations) "Solid collaboration from Ingen and Savier. Like 'Roughten Pounder' the most." Israel Vines (Borrowed Language, Semantica) "Savage mate!" Vacated (futuremusic FM, Power Vacuum) "the whole EP is brutal man, seriously loving it!" Domagoj Šavor (Dots LED) "This is the sound we all love, nice effort from Savagen boys."
