about

For this loop phantasy i again focused on loops of various lengths but I also overdubbed other layers and added more rhythmic elements. The samples are from pop, new age, easy listening and dance music cassettes. I now have a tascam 4 track which i used like another instrument to explore eq/pan controls and pitch.
Best listened to with headphones to experience all the panning effects.

Released in an edition of 50 by Ono records.

REview. RADIO FREE MIDWICH:

"THE MOST IMPORTANT SALVAGED TAPE LOOP RECORDINGS EVER YEAH.......
That’s what I’m saying. If you want to know where looping is right now in 2015/2016: PLAY THESE RECORDS (loop phantasy no1/2/3) .
If you are looking for an instructional map of what’s possible with simple tape loops, a couple of pedals and some hot ears: PLAY THESE RECORDS. If you want to open up that valve in your stomach that helps you release gaseous tension: PLAY THESE RECORDS.

From the Stone Age goof with lovely sounding rocks to James Brown’s well-drilled fonk to Larry Levan’s sweaty yoga-stretch to Prince Paul’s magpie fingers we all love a loop. The act of repetition does something to that brain/body connection. We smile, we twitch… we bust a fucking move. And with that repetition comes the delicious recognition of the eventual slip, the change, the move out of the established pattern that leaves us all grinning at our cleverness – we spotted it first! We picked up on that micro-change that slid away from the beat like a rubber Mungo Jerry" - joe murray
