Dark Entries is proud to release the debut EP “Vehicle” from San
Francisco based synth trio INHALT. Consisting of European and East Coast
natives– Matia Simovich, Bryan Gibbs, and Philip Winiger– INHALT’s core
operative strategy is of sonic fidelity and integrity rather than
nostalgia. Having experienced the downfall of the music industry and
professional studio system while working at Asphodel Records/Recombinant Media Labs,
INHALT needed to create their own creative working environment. Thus,
they designed and built The Bunker Studio, developed around an
integrative ideology and employing the best of vintage and modern
technologies and techniques. Here, they’ve honed their sound–sometimes
referential to the raw electronics of Kraftwerk or the drive of Moroder disco–but ultimately their own interpretation of the border between the
past and the present. What started with the split 12″ for Andy Blakes’
World Unknown imprint now continues with the “Vehicle” EP, where the
brutality of the analogue transistor rhythm section meets the sincerity
of the human voice.
All tracks were written, produced and mixed by the band at The Bunker
Studio, San Francisco, California between 2009 and 2011. Everything was
recorded to a 24 track 2 inch reel to reel tape machine and mixed down
to a 2 track 1/4 inch tape. The tracks were then mastered by Paul
Lavigne in London, England at Walls of Sound Mastering. All songs have
been EQed for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA.
Each LP includes a special two-sided tabbed cardstock insert.
