three years ago, asche added a new musical direction to his work by combining hard distorted rhythms to his dark and ambient dronescapes. the result, 'distorted disco', was (and is) more than accepted by listeners and reviewers alike. beyond his live appearances, asche was constantly working on new material. 'distorted dj' is his new full length album that shows the improvement of asche's musical world. in addition, it is accompanied by a full length album of remixed 'distorted disco' tracks.
the slow and dark 'goldenday (version)' may make you think of a more chilling follow-up to 'distorted disco', but from track 2 on asche shows no mercy with the pumping, hard-driving 'dist dj' versions. you will become a slave to the rhythm and 'finnished' will leave you exhausted - but this is only part one...
on cd 2 you will find different musicians' takes on asche's 'distorted disco' material. from p.a.l's drone version of 'testshow' to the heavy rhythmic distortions of synapscape, from xingu hill's ab-usage of breakbeats and voices to institut's death-industrial treatments...
if 'distorted disco' gave you 11 whiplashes - then we think you can now stand 22, right?
