Not Me – lss 2011 (CSAF) download

The fifth and final EP in the 2011 12s series. Free download from CSAF Records.

Not Me - lss 2011

Not Me - lss 2011

Vol. 5: lss 2011 (CSAF133DL)

Long delayed (it was scheduled for October 2011 but wasn’t ready until December), this final volume in the series was definitely worth the wait.

It begins with a mix from Connecticut resident Darren Milos – aka – Lim. The deeeep dub techno of Darren’s “Verges of Tears” version sounds like the best damn 12″ Deepchord Presents Echospace never made. It’ll make you wonder why Lim isn’t a massive star of the international electronica scene.

Next up comes a submission from Mute Branches. Like the Lim mix, this is notable for its highly dynamic structure as well as the crystalline clarity of its mix. Mute Branches is, it turns out, James Cresswell, a prodigiously talented 20-year-old from the depths of England’s Black Country.

The B-side begins with a remix from legendary Vancouver electronica duo coin gutter, whose mix builds slowly, gradually ramping up the hypnotic intensity over the course of 11-and-a-half minutes. The series concludes with another murky, chaotic mix from CSAF mainstay connect_icut.

As ever, the full track-listing is provided below, with embedded players for previewing the individual tracks. Click on the download link to get the whole thing as a single .zip file.

New Free Download EP from Not Me Featuring a Fieldhead Remix

Here are the details from the CSAF Records website

Not Me - nwt 2011

Not Me - nwt 2011

Vol. 4: nwt 2011 (CSAF132DL)

This volume begins with a typically excellent mix from Fieldhead (aka Paul Elam of The Declining Winter). Probably the most melodically developed and rhythmically solid track in the whole series so far, this is an ideal entry point for newcomers. If you were so inclined, you could even “skank” to this.

The next comes a mix from Ross Birdwise of Vancouver’s legendary EDR (don’t ask what it stands for) and hmbkr. Ross adds a virtual choir of extended vocal techniques to the mix. Scary and brilliant in equal measure, this will appeal to folks who enjoyed Carsten Nicolai and Blixa Bargeld’s anbb project.

The EP is rounded off by two new mixes from CSAF stalwart connect_icut. These are in a post-Basic Channel dub-techno style that fans of Deepchord Presents Echospace will appreciate.

Side A

1. Fieldhead Remix (3:30)

2. Ross Birdwise Nicotine Stain Banshee Mix (4:05)

Side B

1. connect_icut 2011 Mix (5:20)

2. connect_icut Infinite Mix (10:00)

Another New Not Me 2011 12s EP

Not Me - flt 2011

Not Me - flt 2011

Vol. 3: flt 2011 (CSAF131DL)

Featuring mixes by Kuma, Esperik Glare and connect_icut. Kuma’s mix is a (post-)dubstep banger that will delight fans of the big fluffy bear’s acclaimed bass-heavy productions. The connect_icut “Ill Mix” features an unwitting guest appearance from a legendary rapper. The connect_icut/Kuma collaboration was produced by connect_icut using elements of Kuma’s remix but none of the original “flt” samples! The Esperik Glare mix is dark, abstract, complex and yet oddly beautiful.

Side A

1. Kuma Tope Suicida Remix (6:24)

2. connect_icut Ill Mix (5:50)

Side B

1. connect_icut/Kuma Once Removed Mix (5:30)

2. Esperik Glare Remix (3:55)
