Swedish music hardware company Elektron has released the third Elektron Grammofon 12″ vinyl record. The featured artist for this disc is Silent Servant, a DJ and producer “whose gloomy rhythms stay with the listener long after the music has faded out.”
Elektron says of the record, “The two brand new tracks, along with a live excerpt, found on EGR45-00003 are gritty, hyper-engaging and highly personal takes on techno.” The first track on the album, “Run,” is streaming on Thump. Reviewer Alexander Iadarola calls it “the kind of track you have to fight against to keep up with—intentionally disorienting you like an M.C. Escher drawing and exacerbating the experience with doses of anxiety and dread.”
Elektron Grammofon is an imprint releasing 12″ vinyls featuring “artists with an impeccable musical vision.” The tracks of each release are to a great extent realized through the use of Elektron instruments.
Pricing and Availability. Elektron Grammofon’s Silent Servant 12″ vinyl record is $20 US. Each release in this series is limited to 300 copies, available from the Elektron website and a very select number of record stores across the globe (Höga Nord in Gothenburg, Rubadub in Glasgow, Technique in Tokyo and Amoeba in Los Angeles).
All proceeds from Elektron Grammofon sales go to the charity of choice of the featured artist.
