Albinos has now been meaning to open communication channels with the Baka pigmy tribe for quite some time, sadly to mixed results… This indeed represents a rather difficult task considering their take on the devil is a tall white man graced with white hair and red eyes! Even though the Baka people is a peaceful one, the legend goes that if they were to catch that albino devil, they would gut its organs out and turn those into an aphrodisiac concoction. Strangely enough, Albinos believes that his music just might be the best language to turn those antagonistic feelings into a communion, he even dreams of performing his tunes to the whole tribe, deep within the jungle, surrounded with exotic birds and the most hungry kind of predators!
Somewhat at times on the verge of irony, his music definitively trades with sketchy, raw and deep emotions, always sincere in the making : always a few steps away from the pre-shaped house and techno idioms, he offers his very own take on dance music, a most peculiar one. Solely using old cheap hardware and an antique Atari, the tracks at hand are one-take live performances, brutal incarnations of Albinos’ simple virgin vision. As the quest for the Baka people goes on, the Antinote team is proud to help shed light on the journey of this obscure producer hailing from the grand north.

After the stormy techno of IUEKE we wanted to head for something more laid back and luminous, something more summery. Antoine Kogut brings us this perfect three tracker largely inspired by his interest in Euro-Jazz, Afro and electronic curiosities. Antinote is really glad to add this sentimental UFO to its catalogue and welcome this brilliant and talented artist to the crew.
Just like the first Antinote release, this track is groove mixed with sensitivity and fragility. It is both unclassifiable and very respectful of the good ol’ French tradition (from Bernard Estardy to Air), Syracuse just gives us their most sincere and joyful vibrations and their love for non-stigmatized music.
