We’re really proud to be working with Marc Eiden’s The Artificial Limb project! With design guru Sean Hogan at the helm they’ve created this fantastic music video of the single ‘The Circle’ from 500 individual markings. It’s a throbbing piece of inspiring op-art!
Designed & Directed by Sean Hogan. Drawings: Kim Aleksandrowicz, Jessica Dean, Sean Hogan, Marc Eiden. Photos: Kim Aleksandrowicz. Post Production: Jessica Dean, Kim Aleksandrowicz, Sean Hogan. Produced & Edited by Marc Eiden and Sean Hogan.
The single is lifted from his forthcoming album, the follow-up to his gorgeous 2014 masterwork, Brittle As Bones.
‘Cotton Bones’ finds Setec further refining his distinct sound with gentle piano chords and looped percussion providing the foundations for a typically joyous and catchy refrain. This little taste is a sign of wonderful things to come from this very special artist.
Setec will be launching the single at the Gaelic club in Sydney on Saturday, May 6th. The show is hosted by our friends at Skydreams with supports from Spirit Faces, Imperial Broads, and Okin Osan. Full event details here.
A 5″ vinyl copy of the single will be available at the launch, but these are very limited so you’ll have to get in quick!
Stay tuned for more Setec news, but for now lose yourself in the new single.
Our latest signing is The Artificial Limb and ahead of the EP ‘Inner Circle’ we’ve just released the single ‘The Circle’. The Artificial Limb is Marc Eiden, electronic music producer and filmmaker from Melbourne, Australia. Listen on Spotify.
One of the founding members of the enduring Elefant Traks record label, Artificial Limb was born out of Sydney’s underground electro and hip hop movement in the late 1990s.
Inspired by the raw energy and fearlessness of The Beastie Boys 1989-1996 catalog (Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head…), Artificial Limb’s early DIY electro hiphop was showcased as part of the SBS TV network’s Whatever Sessions in 2001.
“As producer of The Whatever Sessions, I worked with Marc to showcase his sample-based electro-hiphop. Back then, Marc’s aesthetic was lo-fi and eccentric, often quite cheeky. The grooves were proudly hand-made. This latest iteration retains those clever and engaging DIY qualities but adds full frequency dance floor energy reminiscent of Leftfield or Cornelius. I’m thrilled Marc asked me to mix this record and honoured to be releasing it,” Feral Media’s Danny Jumpertz said. Jumpertz mixed the four track EP ‘Inner Circle’ in his Brooklyn, NYC studio in late 2016.
The Inner Circle will be launched on Saturday, April 8 in Melbourne at the new Footscray venue & bar, The Night Heron.
Now to round out the year the band joins the Feral family for a new EP, Upstructures. Revolving around the title track – taken from Iconoclast – the EP features previously unheard material, plus remixes from Feral cohorts Broken Chip and 0point1.
All the elements which made us fall in love with their music are still intact; the razor sharp song writing, lush arrangements, and glistening vocal melodies.
We are extremely excited to help the band bring this latest offering into the world. Listen via the player below, or head over to the Feral store to download here
