Autopilot: 1 Year Anniverary

FREE

Attention Passengers:
In honor of one year in flight with Autopilot, we’re taking a turn.

No frills, just straight-up sonic explorations. Instead of stacking a night with twenty artists, we’re bringing things back to the basics.

Longer sets. Brooklyn location. Late nights (if you’d like). Dark corners. Extended play. Expect vinyl, half-finished shit, bootlegs, dubplates, tracks that won’t ever see the light of day.

We’re bringing it back to the artists:
To give them the time and space to get weird.
And we’re bringing it back to you, because you’re the heart of this scene, too.

Thanks for Year One and everyone who has supported us. Ready for another? We are.

Let’s get down & get flown. ✈

☁ Doctor Jeep ☁
Doctor Jeep is a 23-year old New York native known to most as Andre Lira. While attending college in Boston, he quickly gainined notoriety as one of the city’s most diverse young selectors, blending upbeat house and techno with the global sounds of baile funk, dancehall, old-school uk garage, african percussionism and more. With eclectic DJ sets mixing the past, present, and future of dance music in some of Boston’s best clubs, he has proven to adapt to any vibe and make it his own style of party.Production-wise, Jeep’s music has been described as “a style somewhere between the tropical inclinations of Dutty Artz, the grinding 808 electro of Swamp81, and the breakbeat-heavy sound of 90′s UK rave music.” With several original EPs and remixes on Freshmore, Hot Mom USA, Trouble & Bass, Youngunz amongst other labels, and support from international artists such as Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Armand Van Helden, Shy FX, Roska, B.Traits, Machinedrum, and Kastle, the future looks bright for this young producer.

☁ Your Move ☁
Gravity, magnetism, lust, the spice, the sublime, the flow, the message, the method, and the meditation.

Autopilot Resident & co-founder of the end fence label.

☁ Saturn Bound ☁
Autopilot is our interstellar playground for incredible people, good beats, and strong drinks. Simple.

Saturn Bound showcases artists who take craft and form into the future, and allow for spontaneous creative collaboration to take place. We do it on the dance floor.

Nameless

The Burning Man gathering means something very different to each of the thousands of participants who build it up and torch it down each year, dust to dust. To us at end fence it’s an exploration of two of the event’s core principals: decommodification and the creation of a workable gift economy. To play with the notion of digital distribution a bit, we’ve created the Nameless EP. You will only be able to download these tracks if you meet one of the end fence crew in person out on the playa this year — we’ll be passing along physical mementos that lead to intangible gifts. Once downloaded, you’re welcome to share them as you please.

Those who claim digital formats are cold and impersonal have clearly never gotten naked in a desert with 60,000 strangers for a week.

+The Sect+
-The Sect Music / Subsistenz / C4C-

Initially meeting through mutual friends in the late 1990s, Blade and Virtua have been producing Drum & Bass together ever since. Long-time friend and DJ partner Method joined soon after, completing the trio and The Sect was born.

Hooking up with Raiden and Propaganda whilst living in the South of England, they all share the same love of driving, underground drum and bass, especially the breaks, techno and futuristic soundscapes that embody the Offkey sound. This culminated in their first signing to the label – ‘Nerve Attack’.

Heavily influenced by the futuristic releases on Underfire, the techno-edged Konflict sound and the early Prodigy tracks, The Sect aim to produce forward-thinking tracks which blend techno and drum and bass elements to move the dance floor.

They are no strangers to the 1210s either, Blade & Method having DJ’d regularly at clubs and events across the UK and abroad for over ten years and Virtua showcasing his turntablist skills at the DMC championships.

Although as individuals they have had various releases across a number of different genres (currently Virtua is enjoying success as one half of burgeoning Breakbeat duo Digital Breaks Foundation), together they are committed to pushing the technoid Drum & Bass sound and are excited to join the Offkey family.

With current releases on Offkey and Obscene and also a whole host of new tracks signed to Offkey, Freak, Position Chrome, ELP and Habit, The Sect are picking up interest from a lot of big name players within the scene, plus establishing themselves as big favourites of die hard Drum and Bass fans all over the world. Playing at nights throughout the UK and Europe, these guys are destroying dance floors wherever they play, or even where their tunes are played.

You have been warned… Prepare for a complete technoid onslaught of Drum & Bass.

+End.user+
-Ad Noiseam-

Lynn Standafer, better known as Enduser, undoubtedly counts as the better known, most active and highest praised breakcore producers. Shooting his way through the 2000s with salvoes of EPs and albums as well as constantly touring all over the world, Enduser has grown from being a driving force of this sound to one of its best embodiment and most recognized figure.

Synonymous for a music which marries carefully laid melodies with unrestrained aggression, Enduser has received prais- es from all sorts of horizons for the way he manages to entice a sense of beauty in the midst of broken and pummelling beats. If hard electronic music can ever be recognized as having a soul, it is throughout Endusers output that this gets best demonstrated.

Enduser has played too many high-profile shows and festivals to list, and has amassed an impressive discography, which features several highly successful records and tracks. His music has been recognized as heavily influential in many genres, ranging from drum’n’bass to metal.

Enduser has also collaborated with artists ranging from drum and bass heavyweights Dylan or DJ Hidden as with rock and metal legends Jarboe (of the Swans), Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu) or Bill Laswell.

+SilentKiller+
-Herd Killing, Guerilla-

For a decade, music producer and musician Sean Shah who is known as SILENT KILLER, has been an integral and innovative part of electronic dance music history. With EVERYONE BLEEDS, the first solo album, he pays homage to the great producers of Drum N Bass of the 21st century whose masterful works inspired his own development as one of the most diverse and exciting producers of this age. After the release of EVERYONE BLEEDS album, Shah begin working on his second album titled AMONGST VILLAINS, which he produced with Dean Barker (Breaker) and collaborated with some of the most talented artists in the Drum N Bass, Breakcore and Dubstep genre. Shah reaches back to the primary sources of various electronic music genres to create and showcase his personal interpretations. The albums, are more then eccentric beats, rhythm and sound design, it is a window into the mechanical soul of the man in 21st century.
In addition to his albums, Shah has been releasing several singles on vinyl with notable artists such as SCORN, Counterstrike, End.user, UFO!, KJ Sawka, DJ Hidden, Cooh, Gein, Munchi and Rex Riot. Shah’s music has garnered die hard support from top DJs and fans with his unique approach and style. He has released records on notable indie music labels such as Ohm Resistance, Human, Obliterati, Guerilla, Counterstrike and Algorythm.

+Breaker+
-Guerilla, Herd Killing, Bad Chemistry-

Dean Barker or Breaker is a DJ and producer originally raised constantly traveling between Germany, London, New York, California, Oklahoma and now based back in Brooklyn, New York City from where he runs his own Guerilla Recordings. Starting his first compositions with a Sega game console, a few codes and two tape decks, Dean is heavily influenced by death metal, punk music, hip-hop, industrial, and blues. With work forthcoming on labels like Peanut Butter Wolf’s ” Stones Throw Records” , Gein’s ” Bad Chemistry” and more, Breaker’s tunes receive play at the hands of artists & Dj ‘s like Atari Teenage Riot, Dieselboy, Counterstrike, Gein, Cooh, Black Sun Empire, Future Prophecies, DJ Hidden & Eye D, Photek, Hybris, Chris Renegade, Amaning, Reid Speed, DStar, Mason, Capital J, Ewun, & The Upbeats. Breaker has released on “Ohm Resistance” , Diesel Boy’s ” Human Imprint”, Counterstrike’s ” Counterstrike Recordings,” Metropolis Records , and recently on his own imprint “Guerilla Recordings”, Breaker’s already accomplished with much in store for the future of music in many genres.

+SHVLFCE+
-So Fucking Future-

A New York based visual artist/photographer, SHVLFCE’s DJ sets hide in the crushing, mechanised depths of Techstep, Drum and Bass, IDM and Hardcore.
2012 proved to be a groundbreaking year. From premiering a massive mural installation at one of Berlin’s best underground Drum and Bass/Techno clubs: Subland, to collaborations with fashion designer Ximon Lee, SHVLFCE refuses to dwell on boundaries between media, and only strives understand the nature of composition.
SHVLFCE has produced visual design for major labels and artists such as Amon Tobin, Neosignal, Machine Code, Subsistenz, Kuxxan Suum, Perc, and a myriad of others.

+Create Her+
-end fence / So Fucking Future-

Rising from beneath our Sepharad deserts, Create Her wields a story that arcs from ancient methods to future structures and systems. Create Her traverses time in search of true love, siphoning the energy we harness for our counterpart into leaving his artistic imprint on the phenomena we call reality.
Unless his first true love can help it…

Create Her’s sound welds intricate rhythms, snarling synths, meticulous design, ineluctable throbs and breathing basslines drawing from classic IDM, techno, and drum & bass. Create Her has shared the stage with acts all across the spectrum such as Amon Tobin, Photek, Max Cooper, Kuxxan SUUM, SHVLFCE, Your Move, Raiz, and Jogyo.

Enter Soramimi

We’re viciously proud to announce our next release: the debut Square Esteem from Brooklyn enactor Soramimi. Soramimi, alias of Celia Kim, is a NYC-based producer.

Brought up by classical training and rave culture, she regards her music as storytelling and imagery, rather than just dance tracks per se. Her sound is illustrated by cerebral textures and dreamlike compositions. “Soramimi” is defined as a “mishearing” or feigned deafness.

We were struck by the unique fluency and gravity of Soramimi’s work — we feel you will be as well. Square Esteem will be made available for free high quality download on Tuesday, June 4th.

EMBERS II – Your Move + ‘Helioscale’ Art Works by Shvlfce

For the second edition of Embers, New York selektor YOUR MOVE will take us on a reckless 7-hour voyage through lush electronics, abstract non-genre cuts, and rarities you’ll never get to hear played elsewhere in the city. Arkady, co-founder of the eclectic ‘End Fence’ free label, began Your Move as a production and performance project exploring the hypnotic, engulfing rhythms of techno, dub, and other, less describable exercises in bass and structure. He’ll be digging deep into a collection spanning oceans, decades and cultures to bring you to a sublime and shocking place.

Your Move (end fence)
http://soundcloud.com/arkady

EMBERS is a highly curated series of musical performances focused on providing a creative playground for DJs and crate diggers to showcase their depth of influences and push the limits of their repertoire.

This event will also feature art works by SHVLFCE:

A native New Yorker, SHVLFCE, is a Brooklyn based Illustrator and visual designer. His work spans from pen and ink to audio/visual spacial design and production. After executing solo shows in Los Angeles and Berlin over the last several years, along with five installations of his own Techno/Drum and Bass event “So Fucking Future”, this will be the first display of his original concept of Hyper-Surrealism on the island of Manhattan.

Bouncing between a myriad of techniques, the images span and blend architecture, product design, surrealism and motion, with an eye refined by studies in photography and cinematography and a deep love for science both fiction and non-fiction.

The collection of work from 2012 entitled “Helioscale”, surrounds a year of dedication to discovery, re-synthesis and an intensive desire to reach new levels of production and thought.

+RAÍZ+
-Droid Behavior-
Los Angeles born and bred, Vangelis and Vidal Vargas were raised in the ’80s on a steady diet of Latin freestyle, electro, and new wave that pervaded their urban environment. Their father also exposed them to cutting edge progressive acts Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, planting early seeds for aural exploration. By the mid ’90s they were sampling LA’s underground club scene and heavily researching electronic music’s roots. After years of influence they began to express their musical vision through their own recordings and performances. Vidal and Vangelis eventually found common ground with producer / performer Drumcell, and in 2002 they formed the Droid Behavior event production group and record label out of frustration with the city’s lack of knowledge, acceptance, and understanding for Midwest-bred techno and house music and their European counterparts.

As producers Vangelis and Vidal have released and licensed original music and remixes under various aliases (most notably Acid Circus and Raíz) on the Droid Recordings imprint as well as respected labels Historia y Violencia, Tora Tora Tora, DJMag, Music Man, Resident Advisor, Enemy Rec, Gynoid, Reloading, Micro.Fon and Timefog. Their music has been charted, played and supported by Speedy J, Chris Liebing, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, DVS1, Levon Vincent, Jonas Kopp, etc.

Their intense and inspiring performances have placed them alongside major players Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Derrick May, Dan Bell, Surgeon, Sandwell District, Robag, Paco Osuna, Pan Pot, Marco Carola, Detroit Grand Pubahs, and Berghain Residents at undergrounds, festivals, after hours, and club nights from North and South America to Berlin.

+Miyuki+
-Radiobomb 90.7FM-
Whether she brandishes vinyl venoms Miyuki is ready for Junglist Warfare. Her mixes get busy with brass knuckled beats and run these clubs like bullies on the block. The sweet selections she plays are like symphonies and soundtracks to cyclones in mosh-pits. When Miyuki goes hard, her sound is flagrant and hostile – a West Coast Killa to the End. Entrenched in LA, like sawed-offs to a front seat passenger, Miyuki’s connection to underground culture started at the young age of 12. Inspired by a diverse range of music (break beat techno, hardcore, jungle, hip-hop, industrial, heavy metal, trip-hop, ambient, deep and progressive house) she also explored the artforms of Graffiti and B-girl-ism. Battling in underground break circles at many raves and parties, Miyuki repped for VOLTRON CREW from ’96 – ’01. During this period, she started a record collection and finally took her vinyl to the Tech-12s in ’97. She started with Jungle/Drum and Bass and never looked back.
Miyuki finally landed her first two residencies in 2003. She was drafted by Phoenix Orion’s Konkrete Jungle Los Angeles (2003) and Radiobomb on KPFK – 90.7fm. She played as a resident and shared nights with featured guests like R.A.W. and Daddy Kev at KJLA (2003) and DJs Q-Bert and Rhettmatic on KPFK. As her name gained notoriety as the vinyl clad, vinyl totting dominatrix on the decks, her tough and also emotion evoking sounds fueled the rising scene. Miyuki gained narrative depth in her sets as each set contained a musical storyline. The “Quiet Storm” in her was exposed as deep, emotional facets of the mix became apparent to audiences through her selections and sequences. She began spinning other varieties eventually leading her to electro, ghetto house, 80’s bass, breaks and hip-hop. Miyuki later also had runs as resident DJ at Soundwaves, Audio Asylum (A.I.U), and Samurai Sundaze. Her signature mystique boldly embedded her as a fixture in the Los Angeles music scene. Known for her risqué photo shoots and for being one of the toughest, often dark and often heavy, havok-causing drum&bass DJs in LA, Miyuki was making some favorable noise in the scene. This led to her sets moving masses and running ruckus at many major LA events such as Respect, Funktion, LA Beatdown, I Love LA, Timeless, Dark Matter, and many more. Miyuki has shared the bill alongside such names as Tech Itch, Empress, SPL, Dylan, Infiltrata, CRS, Spor and Robyn Chaos to name just a few.

+Clutch+
-Respect-
A Junglist Platoon founding member, and monthly Resident at Respect Club, LA’s longest running DNB weekly, DJ Clutch has been a staple in the LA Jungle/DNB scene since its inception. Many crews have come & gone in Los Angeles over the years, yet Clutch and the Platoon have maintained their presence and
influence on the L.A. scene. A DJ you can always count on to deliver quality music and mixing in his sets.

+Qâr+
-end fence-
Rising from beneath our Sepharad deserts, QAR wields a story that arcs from ancient methods to future structures and systems. Hatching from his experimental outfit, De Qualia, QAR hones in a more refined sound with a tougher husk and timeless sound scape drawing from classic IDM, techno, and drum & bass. QAR’s narrative is conjured from the residue of vintage synthesizers, warped samples and enigmatic signals from the unventured corners of our universe.

QAR’s live sets and featured mixes show demand the mind and body to transcend their usual collaborative abilities. QAR’s mixes are comprised of intricate rhythms, snarling synths, meticulous design, ineluctable throbs and breathing basslines. He has shared the stage with acts all across the electronic music spectrum such as Amon Tobin, Photek, Max Cooper, DJ Shiftee, SHVLFCE and Jogyo.

Pronounced QAR as in Question-Answer Relationship or “I Care.”

+SMSHFRC+
-brokenshrines-
Dynamic. Refined. Original. The LA duo SMSHFRC, comprised of Panther.Gray and brokenshrines, infuses classical structure and operatic aesthetic with finely crafted dance rhythm. With immense focus on producing and evolving their sound, they have cultivated a catalogue of astounding quality, and we are honored to introduce them in their first live performance.

+SHVLFCE+

Having cultivated many fundamental production techniques and tastes while living in Los Angeles, bringing So Fucking Future to the desert of the west is SHVLFCE’s tip of the hat to L.A.’s flourishing music scene.

A departure from our usual Wednesday nights at Arrow Bar, this is our first mission in the West Village.

Our ethos at Saturn Bound is to perfect the magic that happens when you combine good art, good music, and good community together to create events that take flight.

We believe in providing the space and support for creative collaboration and connection to take place. And have a lot of fucking fun, while doing it. Because all good art is a reason to party.

Mmmmaven and end fence proudly present… Amon Tobin (DJ Set)

As you may know, Amon Tobin’s world-renowned ISAM 2.0 experience was in Boston today. For the better part of two decades, Amon’s unparalleled innovation in sound design has inspired artists across all media to reconsider the frontier possibilities of electronic music. His journey has been marked by a string of highly successful studio albums, collaborations with top acts such as Noisia and Kronos Quartet, and performances at just about every major concert venue on this planet. He was certainly one of our first introductions to the power of electronic music here at end fence. To learn more, visit Amon’s website.

Mmmmaven Agency, a Cambridge-based new music school and talent agency that’s hosted some amazing acts over the last few years, has partnered with end fence to present a special intimate capacity after-hours DJ performance from the man himself at a private loft location in Boston. end fence stalwart De Qualia will be on closing duties.

We’re incredibly proud to have contributed to the night in some small way. Massive thanks to all our continued supporters.

Vaporous and glowing. Fronds slapping at your shin. An ancestral recall from a future unwrit.

The A side splashes along the banks of memory — the B side returns to inspect an estate once held. Meditation spills. This release marks the first publicly aired collaboration between kuxxan SUUM and Your Move.

Our friends at XLR8R.com featured END008 today on the main page.

UPDATE: Space: Ibiza magazine has featured this release in their most recent issue with a great review from Brion Vytlacil of Future Music. You can read the entire issue at their site.

It’s the end fence sporadic… post!

Sometimes we just like to keep the borderlands quiet while we keep the studio deafening.

Lots of interesting projects brewing back here at end fence HQ. First off, a few early Summer soundtracks from co-founder kuxxan SUUM. The SUUM recently put out two mixes. The first — accompanied by an interview touching on apocalyptic track selection, arcane Mayan jungle wrath and Melt Banana — can be found on the Astronautico site. The second was chopped up for kuxxan SUUM’s late April appearance for On the Sly at Le Poisson Rouge here in New York. Check it here on Mixcloud.

We’ll be bringing you some serious frontier sounds with several incoming releases over the next three months. The first is shaping up to be a two track split featuring a brand new kuxxan SUUM track and an adventurous remix from Arkady under his Your Move moniker.

The second will be a debut EP from a New York city slave house titan who’s been a huge inspiration to us for years now. More on that later; can’t just give it up that easily.

In addition, you’ll be seeing the first wave of nightlife produced by the end fence boys in collaboration with some impressive crews in New York and Boston. Look for some unexpected news towards the end of the Summer season. BOOM.

Enclosure Acts: Act IV (mixed by Arkady)

Arkady here. This is the fourth edition of the end fence Enclosure Acts podcast — Act IV. I’ve taken a momentary detour from our mildly ambitious project of chronicling the emergence and evolution of life on Earth through musical arrangement. The past three Acts have been dedicated to that purpose.

Act IV isn’t begging for any serious diatribes. I was reaching for something elusive and looming with this one.

end fence co-founder, kuxxan SUUM, presents his sophomore release, a collection of material that departs greatly from his previous downtempo tapestry, Language/Barrier EP. A jarring mantle of field recordings, jittery percussion, mangled harmonies and cyclic bass looms over this EP. Black on Grey. Prehistoric technologies and ethereal states rise and sink in rhythm — this is music for the inward looking traveler.

“Primitive Laser” contains samples of a live improvisation by Greg Davis. Used with Permission.

END005: binary[GALAXY] EP by kuxxan SUUM

Tumbleweeds haven’t been turning here at end fence HQ; in fact, a village of two seems to be thriving into a global city of taste. Since our inception in March we’ve had over 11,000 listens clocked on our Soundcloud page alone — with countless others downloading our music directly or from our many blog affiliates. Archie Pelago were recently featured on the front page of Create Digital Music, a seminal online resource for producers and musicians. Please check out the article if you’re interested in Archie’s innovative live setup that conjoins DJ equipment, Cello, Saxophone, Ableton Live, Serato and Bridge in a brilliant way.

We’d like to express sincere and passionate gratitude to everyone who finds their interests piqued and their eyes slightly widened by our work here. We’ve only just begun, together.

Our next release, coming Monday, October 24th, is a new four track EP of powerful materials from end fence co-founder kuxxan SUUM. Deeper details and artwork will emerge in the coming days. For now we’re sharing the track list alone:

A/ binary[GALAXY]
B/ first night in Brooklyn
C/ ternary[GALAXY]
D/ Primitive Laser

END004: The Shrinin EP by Archie Pelago (forthcoming)

Greg Hefferman, Zach Koeber and Dan Hirshorn are Archie Pelago — a bliss-bearing experiment in wedding cello, saxophone and the rolling swagger of emerging sounds in bass music. The trio, who met through a cascade of fortunate coincidence and correspondence spread across New York city, have been producing together since Autumn of 2010. Their diverse sources of inspiration resonate clearly in their growing body of work. While the group produces their music collectively, each member brings something particular to the fold: Greg his cello, Zach his saxophone and Dan his trumpet and DJing expertise. Together they bend their respective tools into a vibrant, meditative architecture that bears the weight of their influences.

The Shrinin EP presents some of Archie Pelago’s finest works to date. We really think the music speaks for itself with this release; plunge into something sultry and searing with emotion, a collection of pieces that evoke both alien frames of mind and familiar states of déjà vu.

Be sure to return to the site on August 15th when the Shrinin EP will be made available for free download.

Mastering by DEAD GEOFF.
Cover art by Arkady.

If you’re in New York you can catch the boys at a Tekserve Seminar where they’ll “demonstrate how they’re able to harness the power of Ableton Live, Serato Scratch Live, The Bridge and Max for Live along with their instruments and midi controllers to achieve their seamless beats and bass.” Follow the link to register.

You can also see them live Monday, August 15th at Praveen Sharma’s (Sepalcure/Braille) Percussion Lab party. The whole end fence crew’ll be there; come grab a drink and a dance with us. Check the flyer below for particulars.

Look out for end fence Enclosure Acts: Act IV mixed by Arkady sometime in the next week, and stay tuned for news on more releases in the coming weeks. A lot more releases.

end fence love from the omnisphere and news on END004

First off, we’d like to acknowledge and thank the many blogs and artists who’ve been offering intense support for end fence releases in recent weeks. Blogs featuring END002 and END003 include Get Off The Coast, Lofiles (who were kind enough to suggest that Language/Barrier has some of the year’s best album cover art), Surprisesurprisesoundsystem, DJ Nita’s Site, Brooklyn Bass, XLR8R, Mushpost, Beyondjazz, ReqEffect, Chrome Kids, A Half-Warmed Fish, and Casette Blog.

We’ve also gotten some excellent DJ support from the likes of Kastle, C-sick, The Orator, Chaos in the CBD, DJ Nita, and others around the world.

Our next release is due in mid August. This time our good friends Archie Pelago have whipped up a seriously unreal EP for end fence. They’ll be playing tomorrow night at Brooklyn’s TURRBOTAX® party alongside bass legends Ben UFO, who runs the Hessle Audio imprint, and Oneman. It should be an incredible night — don’t dare miss it if you’re in the New York area.

Check out a clip of Archie’s Dameo 745 off the END004 EP by clicking here.

Enclosure Acts: Act III (mixed by De Qualia)

A Summerdawn gift for you.

Gliding, thriving, not quite flying.
The third rendition of end fence Enclosure Acts continues our acoustic kneading through the legacy of life. De Qualia’s kindly served up a diapason of fantastic sounds for you to salivate over. With Act III we celebrate the emergence of the chordates — the slippery phylum we all belong to, vertebrates veritable. Our spine lends us flex and lurch alike. United we are by the braided absolute, a line inside — the foundation of form, the start of a stick figure. As we’ve suggested, the end fence Enclosure Acts attempt, among other things, to chronicle the emergence and evolution of life on Earth through musical arrangement.

The Aztec EP makes a merciless landing with four tracks of rolling house-not-quite-house bass workouts from Boston’s Doctor Jeep. Jeep’s work has been rippling through an expanding underscene of young musicians paring down the divisions between house, techno, dubstep and classic electro styles — this EP champions that sound with some of the most elegant rave dynamics we’ve ever heard. Be sure to check out his Banana Peel DJ collective; they’ve recently been throwing some serious shows all across the Northeast, including opening for England’s SBTRKT at Together Festival.

XLR8R recently featured Level ii, the last track on the EP, to a slew of fanfare and enthusiastic reviews. To quote their post: “[f]ueled by rapidly rolling snares and a flurry of drum-machine beats, the song touches on vintage house—the chopped diva vocals certainly help with that—but also features enough negative space and swirly sonics to fit nicely alongside many of [Doctor Jeep's] fellow forward-thinking bass-music contemporaries.” Level ii has already been getting some nice play from artists like Chaos in the CBD.

The Language/Barrier EP is an incredibly conscientious and celebratory crafting of cultural elements from across the world. With its distinct, fundamentally human aesthetic, Language/Barrier evades all but the broadest of categorizations: you’ve never heard this before. The contributing artists have reworked the original, passionate material into a variety of styles and rhythms, including house/UK Funky, minimal drum & bass, stumbling wonk and soulglowed unclassifiables.

Steeped in unpredictable ecstasy, the EP features 5 kuxxan originals and astounding remixes by Kelpe, DJ Nita, Dead Geoff, Awning (free ALBUM download!), and De Qualia.

A few words from the SUUM of all things:
Language/Barrier deals with the topics that the title itself implies.
The music deals with Language and foreign voices as its primary melodic, textural and conceptual source.

The 5 remixers have broken / twisted / stretched [EVOLVED] this theme and made the piece as a whole that much stronger. You are all earthgiants. Love [ ]

Paging Doctor Jeep

So.

Boston producer and DJ Doctor Jeep has been kind enough to release a single off his upcoming Aztec EP: Level II. XLR8R picked up the track yesterday and it’s already getting a slew of enthusiastic reviews. To quote their post: “[f]ueled by rapidly rolling snares and a flurry of drum-machine beats, the song touches on vintage house—the chopped diva vocals certainly help with that—but also features enough negative space and swirly sonics to fit nicely alongside many of his fellow forward-thinking bass-music contemporaries.”

Oh, did we mention that Aztec will be released as END003 for free download here on this site on May 31st? We couldn’t think of a better way to burn down the gates of Summer than with some hypnotic, floor-stealing bass weight.

Stakes Dismantled

It’s been quiet here along the end fence borderlands for some weeks. We’ve been re-evaluating our structure and aims, and have decided to pursue a new direction. From now on, all end fence releases will be available to download in pristine quality free of charge the day that they’re released — for any and everyone. The age of the sold reproduction, of music placed in equivalence with perishable commodities, grows colder each day. Countless artists and collectives are turning to free dissemination as the new model for engaging the public. We believe our best work is born of our passion for nurturing culture and creating meaningful spaces for you all to connect, resonate, love and cower in sublime terror. Our focus is on spreading the works of brilliant artists and creating opportunities for you to engage them directly through live shows, club events and other celebrations of man’s re-creation through recreation. Get in here.

To that end our first release, De Qualia’s Grasp EP, will be available for you to download this Thursday, March 31st on this site and our Soundcloud page.

Our next release, kuxxan SUUM’s Language/Barrier EP is shaping up to be an incredible offering. We’ve already heard some jaw-dropping remixes from DJ Nita, Dead Geoff (free track download!), and De Qualia, with some other unreal talents still working in their labs. Look for Language/Barrier sometime in late April / early May.

Look for some serious end fence affiliated public programming in New York City and Boston in the next few months as well. We’re staying tight-lipped on details for now — we’ll only tantalize you with the prospect of the second coming of So Fucking Future on May 20th, this time featuring some immense heavy hitters from the world of drum & bass and a special performance from Moisture Farm, the imaginative drum & bass live act helmed by kuxxan SUUM and Arkady.

Finally, show some love to kuxxan SUUM. He’s currently participating in a remix contest, aiming to score a b-side release on the legendary Planet Mu label. Check out the kuxxan SUUM fogchop of Falty DL’s “Brazil.” Maybe you’ll find something you lost long ago in there…

Thank you for the kind support you’ve offered thus far. Next time you hear from us we’ll be bearing loaded gifts.

Seny: “My friend makes music out of random assortments of sounds. I think it’s amazing how he can make cacophony and construct wonderful pieces… While his compositions are beautiful and amazingly constructed, they are hard to embody physically. I challenged myself to finding flow in his music. So far this is what I have accomplished…”

Enclosure Acts: Act I (mixed by Arkady)

This is the inaugural edition of end fence Enclosure Acts: a series of podcast mixes of some of our vital influences and present favorites, served up blended and fused by our resident DJs, label signees, and special guests. Melding the choicest cuts, these mixes are intended, among other things, as guides to our taste and our world.

Arkady: “Act I is a sketched impression inspired by LUCA: the Last Universal Common Ancestor. LUCA is the most recent islet of life from which all descends. Mother involute. We’ve been attempting to recreate her for decades now, hoping to bring forth the cenancestor for the first time in 3.8 billion years. Something about the idea has been haunting me. Teasing into my creativity and supplying difficult elements. Reminding me of the strangeness of life emerging from agential structure.”
