Q&A and Premiere: Aggborough Discusses No Real Value’s Musical Ethos and “The Rhubarb Triangle” EP

The Rhubarb Triangle is an area in Yorkshire, England, that is considered the forced rhubarb centre of the world, and it was there where William Green, aka Aggborough, captured the set of various field recordings which now forms the backbone of No Real Value’s latest release. For those not familiar with No Real Value, it is a label whose 12″ outputs all include pieces of music by Aggborough himself, as well as other leftfield underground electronic music producers, based around a particularly unique set of field recording samplings sourced by Aggborough.

No Real Value’s second outing focused on metal detecting, while this third release pinpoints the location of the field samplings and uses that, as well as  the characteristic Yorkshire dialect and wildlife, to produce a stunning four-track vinyl release. Each piece includes various sounds captured during a recent trip to the Martin Parr exhibition at the Hepworth Wakefield, as well as to the Yorkshire sculpture park the next day. The listener will find ambient sounds from the gallery and wildlife from the park, as well as other human sound recordings juxtaposed against those of giant metal sculptures vibrating against the wind.

6AM talked with Green in honor of the release, and presents to you the official premiere of Ford Foster’s “Ramblers (Set On Fire)” from the EP, which you can find for purchase on Bandcamp.

Q&A and Premiere: Milo McBride Releases “Antika” EP on [par•ka]

New York City producer Milo McBride is dropping his Antika EP on [par•ka] this coming March 14th.

Antika is Milo McBride’s debut tanz-floor release. From peak-time to the after afters – each track exists solely to serve the dynamic night clubbing experience. Drawing influence from his experiences with an eclectic range of musical styles–from punk to juke–Milo makes post-apocalyptic electronic beats for the dance floor and the bedroom. His production employs sounds from various pockets of the world: sonically combining deconstructed digital sounds with organic instrumentation and field recordings. Combined together, these textures map out the emotional territory a futuristic wasteland similar to that of Mad Max, but with laptops and pills.

Out on vinyl and digital (check out Juno), Antika is composed of three originals and an Acid remix by Peter Fonda. The digital release includes “Phul,” a bonus fifth track which we are premiering today.
