Adjunct Audio is proud to announce the release of the new [a]pendics.shuffle album Aware Sequence Found Life. Following his ambient LP ‘The Evening Falls’ on Kompakt in April, Kenneth James Gibson releases his best and most realised dance floor full length as [a]pendics.shuffle. That being said, this release is not only made for the dance floor – in just under an hour, he takes us on a spiritual psychedelic head fuck spanning an array of deep house, techno, ambient, experimental, and even a moment of synth-laden acidic jazz.
On ASFL Gibson plays time like a game of chess. Lush swirling dubbed out vocals, beds of twisted mutated synths, subby bass explorations, dirty reverbed Rhodes piano workouts, and enough shake to make anyone get off their ass. A circus of sounds gather in union to make minds and bodies melt together in perfect harmony.
Gibson’s wife Kelly Johnston lends her sultry vocals to the track Touching Space, while Gibson himself attacks vocals on Sunburned Tears and Nowhere’s Somewhere. Kinsey Dulcet Moore (whom previously under a different name also collaborated with Gibson as Electronic Music Composer on Planet-Mu, as well as [a]pendics.shuffle & Altiply on Adjunct) contributed additional sounds on Being You, Touching Space, and Nowhere’s Somewhere.
Set for release on the 8th July, Sender Records boss Benno Blome turns in a deep and trippy vinyl-only remix of the tune Dark Outlines for the 12” album companion, and as a digital album bonus, Gibson mixes ASFL into one continuous trip which includes extra material.
