Long time Stockholm scene-lurkers HOT COP and D.R.U.M.S. team up on this professionally printed C66 split tape, limited to 75 hand-numbered copies guaranteed to sleeze you out.For the A side, HOT COP supplies a serving of slightly askew modular-infused DAWless one-shot live takes, subconsciously outlining an imaginary Windy City of yesteryear, where hip-house influentials like Tyree mingle with Mantronix while Bobby O wets his lips suggestively in the background as a break battle unfolds. This is the recording debut of HOT COP.
On the flip side, D.R.U.M.S. embarks on a thematic midnight odyssey spanning from beat-driven electro funk with a melancholic tint to the cinematic borderlands of italo giallo. D.R.U.M.S. is rooted in the Scandinavian mid-00’s skweee scene, with previous releases on the genre-defining Flogsta Danshall and the Norwegian Dødpop label, as well as notable productions for underground hip-hop acts like Stockholmssyndromet and Long Island MC Smoovth.
The term ”adequate listening” stems from music theorist Theodor Adorno (1903-1969), who describes the effort to properly listen to music as a work of resistance and a spiritual obligation in a time where listening has become, and is being promoted as, a fragmented activity.
