This is the debut album from the two Anstam brothers. Their music has been charted by Radiohead's Thom Yorke, amongst many others. FACT Mag once wrote: "We don't know a lot about Anstam. No one does. That's part of the appeal." What 50 Weapons can reveal is the fact that Anstam used to be a duo of two brothers from Germany. They were responsible for a now-legendary trilogy of 12" releases circa 2007-2009 -- Brom, Aeto and Cree -- that assimilated the hardest, most dystopian flavors of dubstep, grime and junglism into a disciplined, techno-savvy framework that betrays their Berlin provenance. And then -- two long years passed without incident. In 2011, Anstam came back to life. First, with a contribution to a split 10" with Phon.o on the B-side and later, with a new solo 12" named Baldwin/Carmichael. The first 3 new Anstam tracks in a long time caused yet another stir in the electronic music community. A highly-praised, diverse, moody and dark podcast for FACT Mag in May 2011 showed their influences and favorites. Anstam played festivals such as Mutek and Melt, amongst others, and just finished a Radiohead remix of "Separator." 50 Weapons is extremely proud to finally present their debut album Dispel Dances, which is once again a showcase of outstanding talent. Dark, vibrant atmospheres, lurking synths and the most crushingly dynamic, dead-on-it beats you will hear all year.
