The team at Broken Audio are always striving to find innovative ways of offering quality music. Their most recent offering was the Musical Currency USB Credit Card albums which were received with widespread acclaim, both in terms of the form and music offered. Within days, all copies were virtually sold out proving that substance is still very much desired in what can often seem a faceless digital music world.
But now they look to raise the bar even higher with their latest concept…
‘Project Mohawk’ started out as a codename for a collection of tracks signed from a select group of talented emerging artists, each with their own distinct sound and style of production. As the idea took shape, so the quantity and quality of the music grew, culminating in a commitment to nine separate EP releases. From that point forth the aim was to come up with a twist whereby each release could stand out in its own right, but also form a part of something bigger…
So along with the usual digital download components, each release will have its own limited edition lathe cut 10” vinyl dubplate featuring two of the tracks, lovingly presented in a hand made and numbered ‘jigsaw of art’ card sleeve. Collect all 9 dubplates and arrange the sleeves in a certain order to solve the puzzle and reveal a single larger image.
However, it doesn’t stop there…
Those purchasing the vinyl will also gain access to a selection of exclusive bonuses, such as a free WAV digital download of all tracks on the same release, plus bonus tracks that will not be made available on the digital release, and the odd Project Mohawk sticker thrown in for good measure. Without doubt, this is a unique musical compilation to be collected, enjoyed and treasured for many years to come.
And if all that wasn’t enough…?
Everyone that buys a copy of any release in the Project Mohawk series (vinyl or digital) will be given the chance to enter a competition to win assorted label goodies and the star prize of an all expenses paid trip for 2 to one of the Broken Audio label events in Amsterdam NL. Simply email a copy of your purchase receipts to Info @ Broken Audio and the guys will put all the names into a hat and pick the winners at random shortly after the release of the last EP in the series.
And so to the most important part, the music…
Having signed exclusively to Broken Audio in April 2014, Re Turn has already made his mark with two significant contributions to the Musical Currency Credit Card compilation of releases. Project Mohawk #1 doubles as his début solo EP on the label and as many of you may expect, it pulls no punches!
With a style and production sound best described as new skool magic infused with old skool vibes, Re Turn presents what we think is his most complete work to date. Drawing from a variety of musical sources, expect live break beats, haunting pads, leftfield vocal samples and disgusting sub bass in no small measure as he manipulates the sonic landscape into an EP of rare quality and originality.
