Behold the new world.
Shin Sekai is the new tropical psychedelic vision from Simon Fowler, marking a new expansion in Fowler's colour pallet and use of layering.
Shin Sekai was crafted over the late summer of 2016 in London and completed whilst staying near Shin Sekai inNishinari-Ku, Osaka with the incredible debut album by Waq Waq Kingdom (Dj Scotch Egg, Kiki Hitomi, Andrea Belfi) of the same name as catalyst.
The print comes with a download code for Waq Waq Kingdom's Shin Sekai album as standard as the music and art are inseparable. Hang the print on your wall, smoke one and turn up the volume on your amp. O)))))))))))
Next level sounds coming from the Science Ninja Team WaqWaq Kingdom, re-charting dub territory as we know it with their highly addictive post-tribal epic Shinsekai (“New World”).
Driven by Andrea Belfi‘s trimba – a percussion instrument developed and mastered by Moondog – Kiki Hitomi‘s etheral voice twists through a fog of swirling arpeggiators and polyrhythmic textures, all brought together beautifully by bass- and mayhem expert Shigeru Ishihara (DJ Scotch Egg, Seefeel).
‘Shinsekai’ develops its very own language as each of the hypnotic tracks meanders through different stages of deepness and tension, evolving into the bigger picture of an album with a dazzling amount of intrinsic details.
Stunning artwork by Simon Fowler (Sunn O))), The Bug and many more), done in Hanga / relief printing style. Guest vocals on “Step Into The World” by Kathy Alberici. Mastered and cut for extra heaviness by Pole / Scapemastering Berlin.
