aacht and Altego, two of AVANT/GARDE’s most prominent artists, return with VNTGRD025 – Dust.
Coming off a release on Stil Vor Talent and with support from Oliver Koletzki, the duo present ‘Dust’, which consists of an enveloping A Side and another facet: a B side cut from the same fabric but idiosyncratic, twisted, and alluring in its own way.
‘Dust’ evokes the endless expanse of the digital, of the void behind the screen. Linearity, eradicated. Rhizomic sound. The drive to live, captured, compressed into a faint murmur, filed away in digital format; and yet always blooming within the burrows of electricity, of sound waves, never further than a click away. Desolate synth factories riddled with traps and broken windows and the slow passage of time. A spark of white. The factory breathes through convex amplifiers, and the hands shoot upward. The file forgotten, buried beneath the Dust, a click away.
Dust is out on February 21st.
