Anthony Parasole has revealed details of his debut EP for Berlin techno institution Ostgut Ton. Given that Parasole signed to the Ostgut booking agency not long ago (joining the ranks of Berghain residents such as Marcel Dettmann and Function), news of an upcoming release on the label is hardly unprecedented. Parasole seems to be holding true to his tough, sample-driven NY sound on the upcoming My Block EP—two out of three tracks on the record adopt the same percussive, tribal-influenced style of techno Parasole tested out on Quickstrike (an effort released via Parasole's own The Corner imprint last year), while the record's b-side offering nods to the '90s hip-hop and cut-up techniques that inspired Parasole early on. (In a press release, he talks about a desire to make Wu-Tang member RZA's use of sixteenth notes work in techno.)
Parasole's My Block EP is slated for an official release on November 10; in the meantime, the forthcoming effort's artwork and tracklist can be found below.
