"The miraculous image of sound washed ashore"

This is a beast that was a long time in the making. Running the course of almost ten years, we've done almost everything we could think of under the Konspiracy Group banner. Been the first North American booking agency to really take a full time handling of dubstep. Thrown a bunch of shows showcasing what we have considered to be the most awesome music out there from 0-180 bpm (Kode 9, Pieter K, Spacetime Continuum). We've been blessed to work alongside many amazing people, a lot of you who happen to make your presence felt here. We've even put out a pair of CDs last year. So it only made sense to reach towards the DJs holy grail, to look towards our first 12".

We've always had a thing for the more unique forms of bass science, so for our first piece of vinyl, it made sense to us to distill our mandate and our passion down to its very essence.

Of Silence and Secrecy is one of my favorite things I've ever written. It's Dead Can Dance at 140 bpm. It's a distillation of influences that run from Gorgon Sound to Song To The Siren. Call it psychedelic, tribal garage, call it tropical dubstep, call it what you will. You've very likely heard Kid Kut, Bunzero and Forensics amongst others supporting it over time.

The thing I love most about Flippo's remix is how he's taken the blueprint handed to him and burnt it to ashes. Creating something entirely new while at the same time invoking the beatless legacy of Wiley's Devil Mixes and Kode 9's Sine of The Dub, he builds the track from lush, narcotic ambience into the kind of tune I've always felt Godspeed You! Black Emperor would write if they ever went to FWD.

The third and final track is a downtempo one. Why? Why the fuck not? Every record we put out will include a non-dancefloor tune. Rounding out the package is Motomasa's remix of mysterious Vancouver drum and bass duo, Abunaii. With a production background wedged deep in the hip-hop mecca's of Detroit and Atlanta, Motomasa has slowed down the original drum and bass track's metallic sonorities to a narcotic 808 led skank so these Angels end up somewhere a lot darker then they had planned.

This is just the first shot across the bow. TKG004 will feature Subswara rude boy, Sharmaji, and his mammoth tune "Radha Prepares" alongside his refix of my tune "Luminescent." That'll come later in the year.

Keep an eye out for a brand new Kuma beat tape called Den Songs and a new website too.

Consider this the rolling thread.

Enjoy!

Just love the website, can't wait to lay down TKG003 on my old turntable!

"Three tracks, one vision. When you've been fighting conservative thinking in electronic music for as long as we have, the weapons have to be this sharp."
Endless RESPECT!!!

I also would like to prereserve allready a copy of TKG004. 8) Sharmaji & Lady Eve will be on it if I'm right. :twisted:

BIG up Kuma! You are on the right path, doing great things! Did I allready mention,... RESPECT!!!

big up all of you for the kind words.

Tomre: You're quite right, Sharmaji's Radha Prepares, his remix of my tune Luminescent and then something special from Lady Eve is she finishes it in time, all on TKG004.

coishii: Before the summer's over, should have better details soon. original can be heard on both my myspace and the TKG myspace page.

Cogi/Adam: Large up, your times now.
