Import Export

After a long hiatus the Fasaan Recordings crew finally emerges from their basement to break out a second volume of their Chalice imprint.

Functioning as a looser side vehicle to Fasaan, Chalice is a home for rawer and more uncompromising side projects of the Fasaan crew and their extended family. Honing in on a murky zone of cheap-sounding machine rhythms and punchy boogie-influenced proto-house sounds, the Chalice style is in your face and then out the door "just like that": take it or leave it.

As the title "Import/Export" suggests, the contributions for this installment have been gathered from such foreign places as Copenhagen, Bandung, Tallinn, Manchester and Dublin.

But starting off the EP is Malmo-based Fullstondiga Rottigheter and the deranged digital guitar strumming of "1988".

Representing Manchester is self-confessed cyber-punk and genre defyer Ruf Dug with the dreamy cut "Cassette Boogie 1" which as the title suggests is steeped in lo-fi tape hiss and bounces along to a b-boy beat and some tightly squeezed Prelude-style synth lines.

Representing Tallinn is minimal funk composer Ruutu Poiss of skate crew Haigla who lets his limping drum machine lead us on a wonky trip full of tempo shifts and ambient interludes.

Copenhagen-based PRAAH pitches in with a brooding bass heavy 808 jam made under mysterious astral circumstances.

Fachrur Riaz Hasbullah slides in from Bandung, Indonesia to deliver the ridiculously smooth stepper "Muram"
