Nicolas Bougaïeff releases his ‘Principles of Newspeak’ LP


‘Principles of Newspeak’ is the first release to emerge on Denkfabrik, a new imprint curated by Berlin-based Québécois producer Nicolas Bougaïeff.

Inspired by the appendix to George Orwell’s 1984, ‘Principles of Newspeak’ is about the war on truth itself. An exercise in gleefully distorted harmonies and expressionist noise, the album disrupts the 4/4 pulse with alternative beats and blinding sheets of rhythmical distortion. ‘Principles of Newspeak’ draws on the artist’s love for avant-garde forms by opposing relentless uptempo workouts with inexorably slower techno experiments.

Bougaïeff has performed ground-breaking shows including cello and live processing at renowned Berlin venues such as Wilde Renate, OHM and KitKat.  Next up for him, are releases on Denkfabrik include Vocabulary C, a collection of locked grooves inspired by ‘Principles of Newspeak’.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
