OLIVER HO LAUNCHES BROKEN ENGLISH CLUB project
Since the mid-1990s, Oliver Ho has fostered a rich tract of techno under his own name but perhaps most notably as Raudive. This material has always remained exploratory, its progressive lurch with elements of post-punk and industrial as well as experimental suites of noise and soundscape. Continuing in this vein, his next release comes as Broken English Club and takes his interest in these elements further.
Based on this initial preview the material seems an extension of his work as The Eyes in the Heat, combined with a less driven but more volatile, industrial inflection of the Raudive output. The accompanying video is an edited version of Word Movie by Paul Sharits, an avant-garde filmmaker who was associated with the structural film movement:
The five track 12 comes as the fourth release on Jealous God, the label helmed by James Ruskin, Juan Mendez and Regis.
As with the labels previous releases, which have featured impeccable design, distinctive insignia, and various ephemera (including an engraved logo dagger for the more hardcore of us) this will come with a mix cd put together by Taylor Burch of DVA Damas.
It’s due out February and available here
