Roberto Auser – Faceless Future EP

Somewhere early January Roberto Auser and I went by car to Rotterdam…during the way back he played me some demo’s he had been working on… afterwards he sent me all the tracks to listen to again… from my initial idea of doing a 7″ release it went to three 7″s to a 12″ EP… and the last one is now at the pressing plant…

This EP is entitled “Faceless Future” and contains 6 tracks with pure analogue old school minimal electronics… from rhythm based elektro tracks for the dancefloor to more experimental soundscapes…

The record pays tribute to pioneers of industrial music and early experimental elektro such as early Cabaret Voltaire and Front 242 but also to the more modern new wave of minimal electronics as re-invented by Le Syndicat Electronique…

“Faceless Future” is expected before summer and comes in a silk screened sleeve… of course printed by myself and Roberto Auser himself at Kapitaal in Utrecht… you can pre-order it here…

To kill the time until the release I uploaded a video of one track and a full track preview of another one… both are here below… enjoy!

Roberto Auser

ausland_logoThis week I had a meeting with Roberto Auser (who is also in Kaval)… this as he will be doing the design and styling of Enfant Terrible records together with me from now on… first thing we are working on is the new design for Gooiland Elektro… so starting with Gooiland 20 (coming before summer) the Gooiland records will have a new look and feel…

Anyway he gave me the third release on his own Ausland Records… the final part of the trilogy by Roberto Auser… which is truly an impressive body of work…

The three 12″ EP’s take you by the hand and leads you through different places in the world of Ausland… it starts with a trip to a weird tropical place with “Future Exotica”… jungle sounds and synth sounds go hand in hand in a soundtrack for a trippy sci-fi film about a future past?

After this “Darkness Walks” mixes electronics with some jazzy influences to fit a film noir context for sure… the jazzy part is even more articulated in the new and last EP entitled “The New Dimension”…  about of Dale Cooper Quartet can be found here but also more weird psychedelic touches are there… feeling like you are transported back to a wild 60’s party…

Intended as a trilogy and ending with a record called “The New Dimension” one can only guess what will be next…

Here is one piece from the “Future Exotica” release…
