HKE
SQ777​-​2: HEEL AESTHETIC

First: HKE ripped SQ777-​2: HEEL AESTHETIC outta chests last week on H.V.R.F. CENTRAL COMMAND.

Second: SQ777​-​2: HEEL AESTHETIC is the second release in HKE’s series 777 that’ll be put out on various labels (read more here from the MIA MMJ) throughout 2017.

Third: This marks the FIRST cassette release by the Ukranian shrouded label, H.V.R.F. CENTRAL COMMAND, which I think will be dubbed and shipped by HKE in the UK for money-save purposes.

Four: Totally not sure if these tapes actually exist yet, as I haven’t received my
SQ777​-​1: No Man Is God tape from BLCR, but that’s mostly because things take time to ship from Netherlands to NYC, and my Grams’ house ain’t got postage right now since everyone is on vacation.

Five: Of the two 777 releases I’ve heard thus far, SQ777​-​2: HEEL AESTHETIC is by-far the clubbiest — mostly stated because I am not fond of critique and am generally interested in just listening to the music — but literally, that heel-turn consistency in dancing makes the title here really stick out in a less prophetic way (as is the typical HKE title) and more directly: burn this mother fucking dancefloor into a rainbow of flames.

Six: If I were to compare SQ777​-​2: HEEL AESTHETIC w/
SQ777​-​1: No Man Is God, there are much more social akward sounds in HEEL, mostly because No Man tends to cover a variety of ground, so sound exploration seems expected (and well met), where-as if I’m on an elevator with some little Korean dude and the sounds go from heavy trap beats to the closet-murder deterorating sounds of “Peach,” ya-boii C gonna get looks.

Seven: Keep David out of mainstream media/marketing, please.
