BST008: Josef Gaard, ‘Obsidian Falls’ EP (out 03.31.15)
We are extremely excited to present our second release of 2015, BST008: ‘Obsidian Falls’, from the prolific Seattle based DJ/Producer, Josef Gaard. This record has been in the making for over a year and we could not be more ecstatic to share it with you. BST008 also marks the foray into the 12” vinyl format and we are overjoyed to continue this journey throughout the course of 2015.
BST008 will be out 03.31.15 in both 12” and Digital formats. Stream the opening track, ‘Perennial’ via The Ransom Note and pre-order the record via our Bandcamp.
The ‘Obsidian Falls’ EP from Seattle’s Josef Gaard sits at a very fascinating but incredibly complimentary space between traditional techno tendencies and freeform ambient composition and experimentation. Each track seamlessly references each other providing a straightforward sense of cohesion while maintaining a constant and aggressively progressive motion. The EP will guide and gently coerce the listener into experiencing a somewhat altered perspective on sonic and musical expression. Without much notice the listener will effortlessly travel from point “A” to point “C” without realizing they’ve ever touched on point “B”.
As was the case with Blankstairs alum, Archivist, Josef Gaard has played an integral role in the development of the foggy and seemingly bleak techno leaning sounds coming out of Seattle and the surrounding Pacific Northwest as of late. As a curator and active resident for the Secondnature crew Gaard has shared bills with Abdulla Rashim, Silent Servant, Israel Vines, Heatsick, and Mick Finesse among many others. The ‘Obsidian Falls’ EP is his debut 12” release and a rather successful statement on adventurous music targeted for the mind and the body.
