Nasca - s/t LP


Sold Out

Label: Cortizona

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.
