PRTCL returns to his own label Notion Audio with a deep double A-side, featuring a collaboration with Survey on one side – and one with his kitchen on the other.
Talking about the muscular A-side ‘Scrapyard’, the producer explains: “The idea for the track came together after I bought a handheld recorder. I was making breakfast and thought the sound of pots and pans clanging against surfaces in the kitchen sounded quite cool, so I tested out my handheld recorded for the first time and recorded myself making breakfast. The recording was put into a project I was working on and the pots hitting the sink made up the main hook of that project.”
“‘Traction’ was the first of many collaborations that I have started with Survey. The guys were coming to London to play at a Flexout night and I put them up in my room for the weekend. I started a project that we could work on while they were at my house in London, but we ended up working on it ahead of their visit.”
The record is out now on Berlin-based Notion Audio. Grab it at https://prtcl.bandcamp.com/ and listen here.
