RAFIQ BHATIA [Anti Records]
Breaking English, the Anti Records debut of New York composer and guitarist Rafiq Bhatia, will be released on 6th April 2018. Bhatia is the first-generation American son of Muslim immigrant parents who trace their ancestry to India by way of East Africa. Early influences such as Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, and Madlib—as well as mentors and collaborators including Vijay Iyer and Billy Hart—prompted him to see music as a way to actively shape and represent his own identity, not limited by anyone else’s prescribed perspective. Bhatia’s embrace of the electronic realm bolsters his ability to express hybridity. At times, he uses the studio to destabilize, twisting the stereotypes of Indian music he heard as a child into noise beyond recognition. But frequently, he exaggerates the human qualities of the sound he mines, conveying intimacy and tension through elements many producers would scrub clean.

VAMILIENVATER [bohemian drips. / Staalplaat]
… is the moniker of Fillipp Vingerhoets, co-founder of the „bohemian drips“ label and artist collective. His musical vision emerges from the electronic amplification of everyday life, blending a mix of family life- / urban- and / nature- based lo-fi field recordings into crippling artefacts from VHS Tapes, encrusted cassettes and digital feedback glitches. He is working with VCR Hifi, 4 Track/8Track machines and no input/fx chains. His Live act is a hybrid live-dj set merging his collection from the infamous Staalplaat Record Store, where he started to work in late 2017, and devoted all his record-digging to since early 2015.
