Inventing Masks / 05.03.2016
Error Broadcast re-issued Stunt (Appendix) just recently. Here Giuseppe Ielasi delivers a highly unique take on beat music. After a hiatus of three years Inventing Masks is a new moniker the producer uses to publish his self-titled debut LP.
‘Inventing Masks’ comprises six concentric but slightly out-of-balance sound sculptures, equally inspired from generative composition, ambient music, and hip hop.
“Inventing Masks can stand alongside some of the greatest loop-based records of the sampledelic era. It’s not quite funky, but it is most certainly freaky, and as The Beastie Boys identified, the latter is where the real action is” - The WIRE

Giuseppe Ielasi does his own Stunts / 13.11.2015
Giuseppe Ielasi is an Italian guitar player with a long-ranging history in improvised music. In 2008, he released the first installation of his ‘Stunt’ series, with sequels in 2009 (‘(Another) Stunt’) and 2010 (‘(Third) Stunt’). The concept of improvised and processed guitar was extended towards a more rhythmic approach, enhancing Ielasi’s research on form and texture with a raw and unhewn twist.
In 2013 Holiday Records released ‘Stunt (Appendix)’ in form of a 3 x 7” boxset. Inspired by turntableism Giuseppe Ielasi exclusively used vinyl records to generate, in his own words, “fragmented dance cadences”. Listeners might cite Jan Jelinek or Institute für Feinmotorik as reference. Unfortunately, the record never saw a digital release but in 2015, just ahead of a brand new LP on Error Broadcast, we are happy to re-publish ‘Stunt (Appendix)’ in digital form. “A soulful jam for slippery dancefloors".

Infected geometries from the "IOR" / 11.10.2015
C L N K is Silviu Badea (aka Montgomery Clunk) of Bucharest, Romania. The elusive producer debuted in 2014 with the full- ength Black Ecstasy, soon followed by a 5-track EP, Anti. Both these records feature erratic and brittle bat-cave techno. For his latest work, C L N K sticks with the nihilistic undertone but revives influences from downtempo, hip hop, and ambient. "A brilliant record from the Bucharest beat-maker who continues to defy expectation” (Bleep.com).
IOR 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.
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.
