From Summer 2017 to Summer 2018, I issued four short-run EPs on three-inch CD-Rs that contained fuzzed-out and speaker rattling techno. Smeared dub mixes of material recorded mostly for the White Pillar series, these EPs were somewhat created as a colorful rhythm-heavy sideline to the more greyscale and spacious White Pillar tracks.

Now, another Summer has passed, and I've decided to pool these recordings together into a greater whole, a double-album set that collects the original session recordings for ABX65 (Worktop Dub) / ABX66 (Irondrum Dub) / ABX67 (Thrujack Dub) / ABX81 (Baseband Dub), and augments/expands them with five previously unreleased tracks, themselves recorded between 2018-2019. Fourteen tracks in all, two and a half hours of heavy CH dub.

Stylistically, these tracks most resemble many of the alternate versions highlighted on Filtered Artifacts I and II, as well as some of the Phyllex recordings, which are also soon to be compiled/expanded. Thick low-res slabs of bass and subwoofer buzz collide with analog noise and tape-worn texture, all circling around warped 2VCO and 3VCO alien chords. Influences include Rod Modell's Incense & Black Light record, Demdike Stare's Whitelabels, Wolfgang Voigt's Freiland 12"s, the Phase90 recordings at Echospace and some of the Vatican Shadow material reissued at Modern Love.
