Title: Philip Sherburne, your word should be worth more than the ignorance of Pitchfork
Artist: DJ Sotofett
Cat Number: So-Phat 1
1: Generic Mix
2: Hard Mix
The inspiration behind the title comes from an article penned by Sherburne about the current significance of vinyl-only labels in Pitchfork, in which Sotofett , aka Stefan Mitterer(I think), is featured. Having read the article, the deeper meaning of the title is lost on me. However, the music is brilliant. Sotofett is one of those artists who seems to intrinsically understand rhythm, and be able to effortlessly turn his hand to a multitude of its contexts. Both tracks do more than put their contemporaries in the shade, endowing machine funk fugues with organic characteristics, their polyrhythmic patterns providing perfect mixing foundations as they do. Deliberately digital and only available from Hardwax.
