You may know Los Angeles-based “electronics guru” (I’d say anyone with schematics printed right on their tanktop qualifies as such) Baseck as the long-time collaborator and scratcher with the guys in hip-hop group clipping. In fact, he’s about to head out on tour with those guys this very Friday (February 17), providing the opening solo sets for all of these shows along the way.

But what you may not know (until I tell you in like two seconds) is that, in celebration of this confluence of all-things-L.A./experimental hip-hop/electronics/turntablism, the Deathbomb Arc label will be releasing a new “cassette/digital EP” of Baseck’s this Friday as well! BOOM. Yeah. I’ll let all that sink in…

Okay, still with me? Yes! Great, because you’re gonna want your wits about you when I further tell you that TMT has the distinct pleasure of premiering the A-side from this two-track affair, entitled “Erisfall,” down below. While you wait for stupid, always-so-close but so-far-away Friday to finally get off its ass and get here, you can stream this rush of pounding, old-school drum machines, modular synth stabs, and turntable manhandling as many times as you want down below while you pre-order your own cassette copy in another browser tab at your convenience. Seriously! You’re welcome! No, YOU’RE the greatest! <3
