Punch Drunk Records Celebrate 20th Release With 12" From Ekoplekz
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Punch Drunk Records has been releasing music from Bristol's electronic scene for a while now, and has reached its 20th release in the form of a limited 12" vinyl from the newest signee Ekoplekz (pictured above). Ekoplekz's music is not quite what you would expect from the usually dubby and 2-steppy leaning label. Instead it's an adventure through the world of analog electronics and improvisation, drawing much of its inspiration from the sounds that defined the beginning of the UK underground electronic scene 30 years ago. The double a-sided 12", "Stalag Zero" b/w "Distended Dub," is available as a limited run of 300 copies or digitally here. Check the promo video for the single below and follow the link to listen to a 45-minute Ekoplekz live set taken from his appearance at Bristol's Dubloaded night.
