The ever-unpredictable Cosmin TRG announces follow 50Weapons LP, entitled ‘Gordian’.
The 13th album born from Modeselektor‘s excellent label follows efforts from Shed, Bambounou, Phon.O, Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka, Addison Groove, Anstam, Cosmin TRG himself and more.
50Weapons have pushed as wide an array of electronic music as any comparable label; Addison Groove‘s ‘Transistor Rhythm’ centred on juke, Shed‘s ‘The Killer’ on dark, atmospheric techno, Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka‘s collaboration ‘They! (Live)’ was a melodic collection of tech-house ‘songs’, and Bambounou‘s ‘Orbiting’ virtually indescribable. Cosmin TRG, aka Cosmin Nicolae, returns to follow up debut album ‘Simulat’, and by the sounds of this first track, ‘Gordian’ will serve to extend further the breadth of 50Weapons‘ discography.
In ‘Noise Code’ he combines the elements of 2-step garage, house and techno that have run through his productions for Hessle Audio, Hotflush, Hemlock and [NakedLunch] into a heady slab of synth work. Presumably one of the less club-orientated tracks from the LP, yet nevertheless, in his own unique way, it packs hypnotic club weight.
Preview ‘Noise Code’ below, set for release on April 26.
