Producer duo Fujako (Jonathan Uliel Saldanha aka HHY and Nicolas Esterle aka Ripit) work with echo, bass, and space to summoning unlooped hip hop and telluric dub from the geological strata. Here they present an eroded version of their 2009 debut album, Landform, venturing into the cosmic wilderness of haunted grounds and landscapes. Tracks eroded by HHY, Ripit, and the following remixers: Spectre, explorer into the realm of low-frequency manipulation; Brussels-based musician and video artist Tzii, half of Solar Skeletons with Ripit; A034, an electronic wizard from Milan, Italy; Le Syndicat, French industrial breakbeat avant-gardists since 1982; and Brussels-based producer and engineer Rob(u)Rang (Silk Saw). Featuring the following MCs: Native, a polyglot freestyler based in Paris; Scalper, ex-frontman of Fun-Da-Mental and 2nd Gen; Sensational, longtime collaborator of Spectre, with other collaborators including Ghostigital; Paris-based MC Cheravif; and Seraphim, longtime collaborator of Raz Mesinai. Also features French lo-fi turntablist DJ Urine, whose previous work includes collaborations with The Locust, Otto von Schirach, Mike Patton, Q-Bert, and others. All tracks composed by Jonathan Uliel Saldanha (HHY) and Nicolas Esterle (Ripit). HHY is a Porto-based multi-instrumentalist and producer; he is active in many projects including United Scum Soundclash, Besta Bode, Sikhara, and more, ranging from conceptual sound installation, improvised big band music, and electronic metal to modular choir music, traditional Indian music, and tribal dub. He has collaborated with Mark Stewart (The Pop Group), Steve Mackay (The Stooges), Adrian Sherwood (On-U Sound), and others. Brussels-based producer Ripit has collaborated with Marshall Allen, Mike Watt (Minutemen), Otto von Schirach, and others; he's also a live sound engineer for numerous bands and a mastering wizard. Mastered by Frédéric Alstadt and Nicolas Esterle at Angstrom Mastering. Cover painting by Erik Audoubert. Layout by Alexandra Sebbag.
