More Info

Wie auch DANIEL MENCHE hat sich MERZBOW in letzter Zeit verschiedenen "Klangkategorien" oder Genres zugewandt, aus deren Fundus er sich bedient um sie durch seinen eigenen NOISE oder HARSHDRONE Fleischwolf zu drehen - in der MERZBEAT-Trilogie sind es Beats, die untergrndig wummern, langsam und wallend, die Stcke heissen "Mantra 1- 3" und berzeugen durch die hinzugewonnene Stringenz !

"..Merzbow is essentially a psychedelic artist, attempting to create shifts in consciousness through extreme sound." [Pitchfork Media]
"What did you listen to last summer? Masami Akita, otherwise know as Merzbow, spent most of his summer listening to Horace Andy, Dennis Bovel, Keith Hudson and a whole pipe full of other dub mavericks. That's probably why this brand new full length, with cover art by Jenny Akita, is dripping with deep bass riffage and a whole lot of electronic dub vibes and beats. Merzbuddha is third in the series of Merz-titled releases following in the audio footsteps of the flagship release Merzbeat. With the same reverence for crushing analog beats, weaving noise textures and a compositional complexity Masami Akita switches direction and dubs it up. Imagine The New Blockaders in an audio blender with King Tubby and you're not even halfway there." [press release]
