Koshi Mazaki – Lab: Ring SM Sonic XV
This is the first one of the new series of EPs on Wave Folder Records. Where artists take a bit of kit and create whole EP based on it. With this album Koshi Mazaki is back from his lab with new solo material after a decade!
Koshi Mazaki – Lab: Ring SM Sonic XV album is focused on exploration of AJH Synth Ring SM and Sonic XV Eurorack modules. Unique character of the diode ladder filter, mixed with lovely harmonics coming from wave folder (Sonic XV) and new ring modulator with CP3 based circuit (Ring SM) makes lovely destination for variety of sound sources.
Tracks are ranging from moody, ambient, dense textures with distorted rhythmic elements. All are edited live takes, mixed in dub style with delay and reverb effects giving it vintage vibe with modern twist.
Album was mixed on SSL Duality Delta mixer with Bricasti M7 reverb at Music Research Centre, University of York in November 2016.
