ASR is a record label with a strong inspiration in cosmology, physics and science fiction. With one foot in Detroit and one in Birmingham, ASR is getting the techno in its original form beyond fads. We are believers in the true conception of electronic music as artistic expression and as message.
Our first release is also the first volume of the series 'VLA', named in honor of the radio telescopes system in the 'Very Large Array' of New Mexico (USA).
Radio Transmission True to the sound of Detroit and influenced by IDM and the Birmingham scene, 'Radio Trasmission' presents a crude and analog sound, sometimes simple and sometimes twisted, synthesizing unconventional elements of the dancefloor with complex sounds and structures.
The First track, 'Grote Reber', works around the omnipresent TR909 and the classic DX100 'Solid Bass' sound, building a powerful and effective track. In 'Interferometry', a heavy and deep sub bass, leads the track around dub and post industrial ways.
'CYG X-1', is the only track that isn't 4x4, with noisy and punchy stabs all around, this works perfectly late in the night and in more uncommon sessions.
The last track, 'VLA', is more melodic and relaxed. it is the perfect end for the whole record.
