‘OUFOUFOF’ will land on November 5.
Swedish techno duo SHXCXCHCXSH will release a new album in November, titled OUFOUFOF.
We’re told that OUFOUFOF represents the “beginning of a new turn for SHXCXCHCXSH, one born out of a fresh conceptual approach to rhythm.
Having concentrated in recent years on music for more experimental scenes, SHXCXCHCXSH wanted to create music for the club, but not with the usual 4/4 approach—“…the main focus being our relationship with the dancers’ minds and how we do our best to fuck with them.”
Stylistically, the project began with a discussion about rhythm, about what is interesting and what is not. The result is a conceptualized approach, one in which multiple sounds in each track are based around a single rhythmic pattern. This concept has been extended holistically, to track names and artwork. We’re told that what began life as a series of records has evolved into an eight-track LP of “twisted, polyrhythmic studies in pattern and texture.”
