Footwork impressionism from SELA. / 17.02.2015
SELA. is 21-years old Devante Tillis from California. The enigmatic producer operates in the aural wastelands somewhere between cloudrap, leftfield R&B, and a loose approach to footwork. He did beats for Kitty, Main Attrakionz, and Japanese songstress Noah. Furthermore, he caught the eye of tastemakers from Ryan Hemsworth to allmighty A$AP Mob. His Bandcamp account bursts with numerous smaller and bigger releases. Needless to say, the man is on a mission.
The EP first is SELA.’s vinyl debut. Tillis refines his formula and delivers six tracks that oscillate from longing melancholia and claustrophobic unrest. first is heavy on surface noise and subdued, seemingly random vocal samples that leave you with twisted attraction; piano loops and sparse guitar licks give rise to sparkles of occasional light. Fans of Shabazz Palaces or Spooky Black might find common ground here.
first is now available all digital and on 180g 12" vinyl in full-color sleeve on sale at our webstore. For more info and purchase options visit error-broadcast.com
C L N K - ANTI EP / 20.06.2014
It's been a second since we issued the 2nd release of Romanian techno gravedigger C L N K. Head this way to stream 'ANTI' via FADER mag or download from our store directly. If you're undecided grap 'Fuck Hype' from XLR8R first.
In more recent news, make sure not to miss Taprikk Sweezee's remix of 'CPR' (whose artwork can be seen above). C L N K followed the invite of Big Up mag and compiled an exclusive podcast of all-exclusive material. Quite a corker.

Iglooghost & RUFFMERCY are Flying / 04.04.2014
Super stoked about Iglooghost's unofficial remix of Wiley's 'Flying'. Don't miss the remix video Ruffmercy threw together rather brilliantly and which premiered on THE405 earlier this week. Hype thing.
Yellowfours Video and Digital 7" / 16.03.2014
Iglooghost scouted the family archive for video material of back in the days when the kid was a kid even more. The search resulted in the music video for 'Yellowfours' which Iglooghost iced with his trademark animations.
Stream it above and check out what XLR8R had to say about it. Also, download the 'Yellowfours' 7" we are offering for free download from Bandcamp. It includes an unreleased Greyhat remix as premiered by EARMILK.
Iglooghost debuts with TREETUNNELS / 28.01.2014
Iglooghost is 17-years old Seamus Malliagh, Irish-born beatmaker located somewhere in the English hinterland. Treetunnels finds him at his very best: crackling rap instrumentals that successfully balance psychedelia and straight-forward hip hop beats. The Treetunnels tape includes vocal features by milo, Hellfyre Club producer Riley Lake, Italian songstress Kae and Australian enigma jitwam.
Cassette exclusive is a little rap track with Mr. Yote and remixes by Greyhat, Riley Lake, and Brainfeeder-affiliated Leaving Records boss Matthewdavid.
Cassette is now available exclusively on our webstore and HHV. For more info and purchase options visit error-broadcast.com
2013: Our Year in Review & Family Charts / 23.12.2013
This year was rich of experience. With Soosh's beautiful 'Colour is Breathe' we had our first real album release, including quite a bit of music industry buzz. This 2LP was followed by a sweet remix 12" featuring Slugabed, Dam Mantle, The Cyclist, Synkro and more. After the Summer break we issued the debut EP by Lithuanian wunderkind 96wrld, 'Private Language' and towards the end of the year we switched back to album mode with 'Black Ecstasy' by good ole' Montgomery Clunk aka C L N K. A release we are proud of in particular because we charted into new territories, musically speaking.
Besides the 'big' releases we were delighted to present a free-for-download EP by B-Ju ('Cheap Shots'). Furthermore, a long-overdue project finally saw the light of day: we selected and arranged a couple of joints we had left from NYC producer Benny B. Blonco and released the unauthorized 'Random Knocks' tape. Don't sleep on this essential document of the school-of-2009 beat music.
These guys made our year. We asked them their top-5 releases, and included the favourites of UK producer Iglooghost who's set to publish his 'Treetunnels' tape with us in January and H-SIK, who will surely return to Error Broadcast in 2014....read more
Montgomery Clunk returns as C L N K / 12.12.2013
C L N K is the latest musical incarnation of Silviu Badea a.k.a. Montgomery Clunk. Error Broadcast published two EPs with the enigmatic Romanian producer but following the release of ‘Mondegreen’ early in 2012 Badea went through a series of changes.We lost touch for a bit. Then, late in 2012, he re-appeared and out of the vacuum of his temporary exile Badea presented the full-length album you are about to witness as Black Ecstasy.
C L N K explores the bat caves of techno. Primordial music for the jilted generation, Black Ecstasy leans towards a variation of techno that directly stems from post punk and its electronic successors.
Black Ecstasy is now available all digital and on 180g 12" vinyl in full-color sleeve on sale at Boomkat, HHV, Juno and on our webstore. For more info and purchase options visit error-broadcast.com/ebc024
