Exclusive Premiere: Kaczmarek – 5555 (KCZMRK)

Artist: Kaczmarek
Title: K.A.C.Z.M.A.R.E.K
Cat No: KCZLP002
Release Date: 8th October 2018
Genre: Electronic / Techno

Kaczmarek is back with an upcoming full-length album, “K.A.C.Z.M.A.R.E.K” – the third release on the experimental label, KCZMRK. The label’s first releases in 2017 were Kaczmarek’s, “IIIIIIIIIIIIII”, and the follow-up remix EP “IIIIIIIIIIIIII Reworks”, featuring dubbed out techno reinterpretations by Sterac, Vril, Lewis Fautzi, VSK, and Djedjotronic. As the debut release on KCZMRK, “IIIIIIIIIIIIII” chiseled away at the walls between Paul Ritch’s previous jacking techno sound and the ethereal sonic derives of his burgeoning Kaczmarek sound.

“K.A.C.Z.M.A.R.E.K”, from the title to the sounds, is intended to be a more personal project for Ritch – indelibly closer to the confluence of sounds that he hears embodying the spirit of Kaczmarek. He drives the mind’s eye deep into the inner-ear with the album’s spacious opening tracks, only to leave your head bobbing with the extraterrestrial rhythms that emerge as the main body of the album. Moody and foreboding, loaded with the scattered, staccato and broken beats, more ovular than linear in composition and ranging from vaporous-ambiance to hyperventilating grooves, the nine tracks on this album defy categorisation.

The “K.A.C.Z.M.A.R.E.K” album will give the listener a deep well to return to. The vinyl release will be a fittingly rare issue – only 100 numbered copies are going out, while digital releases will run parallel. Keeping with the dark and cryptic theme of the first release Russian artist, Sasha Sime, is back for his third KCZMRK cover design. The talent pool runs deep on this one, with a remix EP following two months later with work from Museum, Adiel, Antigone, and Iori. Keep your eyes open and ears ready:
