Phuqtek EP released

Hey everybody ^_^

It’s been a while since i released some music.  And that’s mostly because it’s also almost been a year since i started working a factory day job to pay for debt and new synths.

But also, dues to a shift in the ‘kind’ of music i make.   Whereas i made trance under the alias ‘Whrikk’  before, this release is by ‘WHRK’  – Same guy, different technique.

labels beer bottles.

While there, i tried to stay inspired despite the repetitive, physical work.   So i recorded sounds and worked out a way to make tracks in a shorter time. At nights after work,  or very early mornings.

Recording more live synth jams and sampling life around.
Opposed to lots of editing and automating plugins.

For instance, my colleague and friend Koen, helped me record the beautiful sound of servo’s and clicks from a machine that measures spectral data.  Some of these ended up in ‘Majestic12 Factory EBE-2 pt3′.   Cutting them up and making rhythms.   Another featured colleague is the whistling in the same song.

By now, it’s become quite a bundle.  Enough for an album i’d say!
I titled this album ‘Phuqtek’,.. after a machine i got to work with allot in the beginning.

…the rest to follow later.
