Opal Tapes Sign Shapednoise
UK label Opal Tapes have announced that they will be dropping their first release on vinyl and the man chosen to helm their first foray into the format will be none other than Berlin based Italian Shapednoise. Previously two of the labels cassette releases were pressed onto vinyl by Boomkat Editions as were two cassettes by Opal themselves but this new 12” from Shapednoise is the first time the imprint has decided to release material exclusively on wax.
Entitled ‘Until Human Voices Wake Us’ hasn’t seen the imprint betray it’s experimental roots and the format seems to have little bearing on their artistic output with the new work still not the transition to club ready music that a release on vinyl might suggest. The new EP delivers 6 tracks that are certainly more in keeping with the work of Shapednoise both as a solo artist and alongside Violet Poison as Violetshaped.
Set for release in August those of you keen to hear the upcoming release can stream one of the tracks to “Information On The Individual Sensoriality’ in full below.
