SHXCXCHCXSH have announced their newest LP, titled OUFOUFOF. The album represents the beginning of a new turn for the duo from Sweden, one born out of a fresh conceptual approach to rhythm.
Having concentrated in recent years on music for more experimental scenes, SHXCXCHCXSH wanted to create music for the club, but not with the usual 4/4 approach. “…the main focus being our relationship with the dancers’ minds and how we do our best to fuck with them” the duo remarked in a recent interview.
Stylistically, the project began with a discussion about rhythm, about what is interesting and what is not. The result is a conceptualized approach, one in which multiple sounds in each track are based around a single rhythmic pattern. This concept has been extended holistically, to track names and artwork. Ultimately, what began life as a series of records has evolved into an eight-track LP of twisted, polyrhythmic studies in pattern and texture.
Fresh off the back of SHULULULU EP for Avian, OUFOUFOF, is the fourth studio long-player from the Swedish duo. OUFOUFOUF is set for release on the 5th November. Listen to a snippet from a track off the album below, titled UUOUUOUU.
