Kid Schurke & Brain Hall – Haen Zikum Ulus [elyt09]

Electrolyt proudly presents

Kid Schurke & Brain HallHaen Zikum Ulus

At the Brainhall synapses twitch to the beat with joy, when Roman Schürch and Andreas Glauser launch their machines. Frequencies are modulated, punctured, tweaked and pitched. In doing so, the tones and textures of the five tracks are kept well in flux by the fixed rhythm scaffolds and repetitive sequences. Due to the analogue origin of Kid Schurke and Brain Hall’s machine music, the overall sound is organic and warm. This is glitch and hop, industrial noise, ambient and improv jam. Sometimes there are subtle references to the electronic music pioneers of the 70s and sometimes memories of ecstatic synth-thunderstorms on dance floors in the early 90s appear as split-second flashbacks. The long tracks leave space for the music to develop and evolve. Quiet parts turn into tight electro funk monsters and beats disappear in an ocean of frequency modulations. It’s so exciting and inspiring. For the love of electronic music: Haen Zikum Ulus

Elyt09 is produced, mixed and mastered by
Kid Schurke (Roman Schürch) and Brain Hall (Andreas Glauser)
at Brainhall Studio Zürich, Switzerland, 2016.

As usual the latest release on Electrolyt comes with some imaginative and associative liner notes, written by the voice of Lipstick, Krystal Bell:

Lipstick is the post-apocalyptic beauty. There’s never been a more important time to listen to this album; it reflects the world we live in today and cries for change.
Escape to Mars consists of 4 surreal, thoughtfully-constructed tracks produced by Andreas Dorwarth and Krystal Bell, which push us to discover the boundaries of reality and our human perspective.

Highspeed Racer – Start the journey, discover your destination. Driving bass and tight hyper-drums mimic sounds of a futuristic city buzz, tickling your feet to dance. Krystal’s dreamy vocals send a message to stand true to what you believe and sing your own song. Sit back and enjoy the ride!

Time Has Come – A marching drum and high-hat reveal the sounds of change, intricately decorated with magical female vocals, filled with love and passion. Imagine a lush, untouched rain forest where no man has gone before; only to be destroyed upon first human contact. Krystal sings, “The time has come to bite the bullet…pay the price for what we’ve done.”

Helicopter Rain – This song captures the very essence of the post-apocalyptic beauty. The thumping drum of your heart beat tells me you’re still alive, after the ‘Helicopter Rain’ and ‘black birds’ in the night have left the city in ruins. We will survive… this is the feeling of undying hope and compassion.

Like So Many – In a vibrant, full and connected, one can still feel alone and disconnected. This playful, dramatic tune is a party in cosmic bubble surrounded by the stars. Krystal’s sweet lyrics in German & English leave the listener with feelings of hope and desire. She sings ‘to be amongst the stars’ sharing the idea of transcending above all negativity. Nothing but love.
