Amnesia Scanner releases audio play on Gum Artefacts in dubplate edition of 1, streaming edition of ∞

Back in May of 2014, a shadowy producer (as in, “we do not have a single bit of information about who this is,” not “their FADER cover partially obscures their face”) using the moniker Amnesia Scanner released a continuous set of “HD explosions and reversed cymbals,” ” aestheticized chronos, sentient beats,” and “digital shards of glass” called AS LIVE [][][][][], which was hailed by the likes of Daniel Lopatin, Janus Records, and Tony Mixtapes, coming not long after Arca’s similarly perverted &&&&& mix.

Flash-forward to Wednesday, when Amnesia Scanner reappeared on Bill Kouligas’s monthly PAN show on Rinse FM with a seven-part audio play called Angels Rig Hook that mixed surreal spoken-word visualizations with interference from SETI FM radio signals and a little bit of pressurized bass, a few reference points provided in “Drexciya,” “François Rabelais,” “Quake 7 Arena,” and “a flake of skin.” It was so abnormal that the only outlet it could possibly be physically released through was Gum Artefacts, the label that released Felicita’s Frenemies EP as a translucent yellow drawstring bag (one of my favorite releases of 2014, a truly insane collection of diverse songs that was like PC Music’s version of Fat Worm of Error). Unfortunately, the physical edition seems to be limited to one single-sided dubplate with an etching on the B-side. Fortunately, the whole thing is available to stream below:

Angels Rig Hook tracklist:

01. DeathCon Valley
02. Titan (ॐ)
03. Creeper
04. Exopsalm
05. Treasure Island
