Twelfth Reduct

Since the start of this year I try to release something every first of the month through various projects. Five months in, it is time for another Ohrwert EP. “Twelfth Reduct” takes a cosmic spin with two brand new recordings, partly inspired by my sequential music released as Arjen Schat.

Reduct Revival

Ten years after the Reduct series was launched as an audio blog (ohrwert.blogspot.com), the series is continuing on Bandcamp. Since “Tenth”, the closing album of Reduct 1 to 9, many releases have seen the light of day through different labels and formats all over the world. Now it is time to go back to the original format, in 24bit/48kHz quality.

 

“Eleventh Reduct” is the remnant of a series of tracks I have produced in 2015. Though never released as a whole, the other tracks have found a home on different labels. “Ordior” was released on Grounded In Humanity’s “DNA Sequence Vol. 2” compilation CD, and “Blavus” and Fidelis” have recently been released on vinyl on Grad_u’s label Greyscale, including remixes of “Blavus” from XDB and Aleksandr himself (scale-limited.bandcamp.com/album/fidelis-blavus).

Soundwise, things have changed over the years. Albums like “Intueri” are a showcase of a new direction. A direction that resulted from club-based live performances, which can hold its ground in the deep end, but is obviously dance-oriented. “Eleventh Reduct” is no exception to that sound, a signature Ohrwert dub flavor with more substance and solid drum grooves.
