We welcome back our friend Edgar Smith from Niqab / JC Flowers and his studio project, Elevator Fluids.

Salonika’ started out on a toy guitar, delay pedal and Tascam 4 track in Thessaloniki in January this year. I think one cassette, maybe the better one, was left on the baggage conveyor belt at Gatwick. As with the EPs put online in October 2016 this album is made in a spirit of deeply practiced mal-coordination, in one or two takes, with accidents mostly kept in. Where screw ups suggested new paths, old plans were impulsively erased on the whole. These inflection points of intuition were then bleached out a little with a blunt and systematic approach to mixing and editing. TG, SPK, Drew McDowall, Mainliner and Scott Walker were influences, as were mixes and tape music of various kinds, a fixation on the news partly picked up from work and small hours morbid online tunnelling. Special thanks to Moon Zero for raising percussion hell.

The new album is available as a highly limited cassette tape, with download code.
