an intriguing, live-recorded album that floats into the territory of the most cosmic german & italian synth explorers of the ‘70s & ‘80s, then takes flight into otherworldly techno grooves.

james ford & jas shaw created an entirely new electronic system for this album, & recorded everything entirely live, from scratch. limiting themselves to two suitcase-sized boxes – no laptops, no racks of hardware, just one synth & one sequencer each – they headed into the high desert of joshua tree national park in california & recorded ‘whorl’ in front of an audience. the result is something that takes you right into the heart of their creative processes, it’s not a sound that punches you in the face with its newness or weirdness – the album draws you in gently with the truly beautiful airborne, beat-free opening passage of ‘redshift’ & ‘dandelion spheres,’ & each track thereafter is subtle, rarefied & elegant.
