Nasca - s/t LP
Release Date: July 5th, 2019
Most of the October nights in 1987 you could find Gerry Vergult (Aroma Di Amore, Fred A., Adult Fantasies) and Gerrit Valckenaers (Adult Fantasies, The Colorist Orchestra) in a desolated top studio in Ghent. At that time and place they sneakily crafted and shaped this Nasca record while they were supposed to finish a new Fred A. record. They created an abstract universe where minimal post-punk basslines blend together with radio sounds in "Nothing Toulouse," tropical tribal vibes oscillate between futuristic nostalgia and hunted dreams in "Ketama" and "Ritz," a sampled heartbeat slowly mutates in mesmerizing midnight jazz and a drugged-out dub groove of "Kamayacha" transforms into the inner city blues of "Josaphat." All tracks composed, arranged, and performed by Gerry Vergult and Gerrit Valckenaers. Personnel: Gerrit Valckenaers - piano, saxophone, clarinet, synths, samples, electronics; Gerry Vergult - guitar, bass, synths, samples, electronics. Produced by Koen Van Regenmortel. RIYL: Jah Wobble, Jon Hassell, Brian Eno & David Byrne, dub, world, jazz, dreamy electronica. Recorded in 1987 and now released for the first time ever with artwork by Sarah Yu Zeebroek.
