in 2013 michael morton aka displacer released the ep 'curse of the black lotus' on his own realigned crime league imprint presented on cd-r and digital format. on the four tracks completed with a remix displacer deeply dug into his artistic roots and showcased a brilliant mixture of darkened drum'n'bass and post-industrialism. hymen records and crime league introduce the outstanding continuation of this release: 'curse of the black vinyl'.
on this record you will discover three exclusive displacer tracks: 'freefall', 'unbreakable' and the overdub mix of 'i'll be bach' which showcases vocalist teslee snipes and keef baker on bass. furthermore, 'curse of the black vinyl' presents four remixes by french artist hologram_, american breakbeat / abstract musician dj swamp, jonah k(amphorst) from canada, and legendary meat beat manifesto mastermind jack dangers. the original tracks by michael morton and the processed remix works result in a masterly done, coherent revision - seven exciting aural explorations between breakbeats, electronica, trip hop, industrial synthwork and etheric, airy melodies. simultaneously haunting and soothing, this album should be defined as a blessing instead of a curse - be invited!
