MachineCode set to drop ‘Every Ones & Nothings’ on YUKU
MachineCode is a duo comprising Current Value and Dean Rodell, a pair of artists who have shaped a unique sound in bass music and techno throughout their careers.
MachineCode is a project formed out of true respect and passion for dance music with its origins deep-rooted in Techno. Neither artist needs an introduction to any of the scenes they have been busy infiltrating, as these two heavy-weights of underground electronica have been continually releasing tight cuts and forward thinking music for over 20 years between them to date. Both producers have released on many top-notch labels such as Cause4Concern, Eatbrain, MethLab or PRSPCT to name a few. They’ve always been known for their heavier productions.
Prague based label YUKU present the first release by MachineCode in nearly four years! With their highly acclaimed ‘Every Ones & Nothings’ album they now show their skills in even more experimental realms (if that’s even possible!).
‘Every Ones & Nothings’ is an exploratory body of work that is immediately identifiable with the MachineCode audio aesthetic. It moves through genres with ease – from 130 bpm leftfield bass to Dr Octagon-inspired halftime, techno, ambient and experimental Drum & Bass. Layered with mystery and myth, it explores conspiracy theories which people tell each other and the things that are whispered about in obscure corners of the Internet.
Our premiere today, ‘King Trigger’ opens up with buzzing pads which lure you right into unknown territories. It’s filled with classic Current Value hats, grinding alien synths and poppy drums. The tense buzzing follows the listener along the shimmering atmosphere and dubby stabs. MachineCode proves once more that they’re able to break standards and expectations as well as stay true to their obviously unique style at the same time. Not many artists nowadays are able or even willing to make such moves! Chapeau!
The amazing album artwork is by Zeke Clough of Skull Disco notoriety and more. An accompanying video by animator Oskar Alvarado retells and reimagines the folklore behind the Mesoamerican serpent deity, Kukulkan.
