6 track LP pressed on 12″ black vinyl with black centre label, black disco insert, black laminated sleeve with barcode detail.

London based label SM-LL presents its second main label 12″ LP release, Zimní Král, from Italian artist Andrea Taeggi.

Andrea Taeggi works in Berlin as a composer, live performer and electronic music producer. Besides his solo practice
— on his own name or under the moniker Gondwana, he is co-leading long-standing electroacoustic project Lumisokea. His music has been released on vinyl and dubplate on labels Opal Tapes, Type, and Präsens Editionen. 

“The music on this record was made using a vast array of rare analogue machines I had the chance to work on at the Willem-Twee synthesis studio in Holland (built with the iconic Studio di Fonologia RAI as a blueprint). Most of the percussive sounds come from an Analog Computer, which has been rarely used only as a music instrument (its main purpose was flight simulation). In fact, during the Cold War times, it was also used as a measurement tool by civil engineers and even by the army.
To my knowledge, very few artists have given a new context to such device, which I have found absolutely unique-sounding and gave me enough inspiration to compose a whole new album focused on it.

At present, no one has ever officially released music recorded at the Willem-Twee synthesis studio.

The music on this record further explores cyclical, minimal and hypnotic concoctions – a particular investigation focused on unusual rhythms that I had already started on ‘Mama Matrix Most Mysterious’, released on Type in 2015. Think walls of sub frequencies, snappy rollercoasters of the mind, labyrinths in hyperspace & snakes eating their own tails.

Zimní Král means “Winter King” in Czech and was the epithet given to Frederick V Elector Palatine (king of Bohemia), the last of a legacy to actively support alchemy as a means of studying reality, the self and their inter-reflections.” – Andrea Taeggi
