Abrader EP (KR003)

by Gunnar Lockwood



An initial sampling of Gunnar Lockwoods first full length LP on KR (2013). The ABRADER EP Includes a masterful remix by Southeast Asia’s “Mix Architekt”
Gunnar Lockwood’s ABRADER EP is a cohesive collection of strangled analog grunts, excited whispers, and explosive outbursts of joyous bewilderment. All re-enforcing an undercurrent of absurdist playfulness designed to loosen the musculature of both the face and the ass
“These are not the same tracks you’ve been hearing all month. The tunes are fresh, original creations, setting you apart from typical dj stuff.” — Mix Architekt
“His tracks have an elastic, ungridlike quality that’s missing from much techno.” — Dave Segal of Seattle’s “The Stranger”:
“I hope you have filed a W9 because this is the business.” — Ian Price of Pleasure Boat Records:
“Destroyed. Destroyed.” — Recent audience member reaction.
Witnesses of Gunnar Lockwood’s live performances have asserted that this is in fact techno as it should be: somewhat raw, immediate, on-the-fly, and almost primitive. But it’s precisely the primitive part of the brain that needs stimulation so that people may be coaxed into dancing nameless, never-before-seen dances. It encourages the kind of injury sustained from overly enthusiastic lovemaking. It’s the untying, retying, and then severing of knots. It’s like popping bubble wrap with your genitals.
