2014 repress. Intersex is the debut LP by Steven Warwick aka Heatsick. The title references the work of German sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld, looking at how music and sexuality can operate in flux on a constantly sliding scale. Executed on just a Casio keyboard and manipulated loops via guitar pedals, Intersex deliberately evokes "ersatz" notions of electronic dance music and early electronics in the line of Roberto Cacciapaglia's Ann Steel record, the work of Warner Jepson and the kaleidoscopic sound of Ron Hardy, pushing dance/body music through a saturated psychedelic lens. Steven Warwick is a Berlin-based performer, also known for his work in the electronic duo, Birds Of Delay. His approach is one of carefully thought-out loops which are then sent into varying interactions and play. Active in the club, art and music scenes, Warwick's work is one existing in a luminal space, meditating both at once in real time and the "just past." The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, in a limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silk-screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Steven Warwick, Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas.
