Forss – Ecclesia

Fans of the seminal Forss album Soulhack had to wait a whole nine years until a signal that he hasn’t lost his interest in making music. Since then, he was mostly busy launching the SoundCloud platform with his partner Alexander Ljung, but as of today there’s word about a new album: Ecclesia.

It should be of no suprise, that someone as versatile and skilled as Forss releases not just a record, but an audiovisual album “that combines breath-taking electronic music with a stunning app for the iPad.” Collaborators are Viennese digital artist Leo Lass and CGI artist Marcel Schobel.

The opening performance takes place at Berlin’s Berghain club, the app is scheduled to launch the same day. As the “full album” is announced for June 12th, it should be available on more common formats as well.

Cover Artwork

Today is the day, that the latest release from fine Viennese label Affine hits the stores. It is a split single by The Clonious and newly signed Cid Rim, both members of JSBL – alongside Dorian Concept.

While fans of Between the Dots will not be disappointed by Clonious’ new material, to me it’s Cid Rim’s fresh approach that makes Full Nelson a must-have record. I’m just making sure this doesn’t stay this year’s best kept secret.A1. Cid Rim – Jerome
A2. Cid Rim – Chop Suey Cide Step
A3. Cid Rim – Bear Hug Love
B1. The Clonious – Truth (feat. Paul Randolph)
B2. The Clonious – Earringer
B3. The Clonious – Paul´s Suite

Below you can listen to snippets of the tracks on the release:

Like the previous Affine release, Ogris Debris’ Aery, the cover artwork is done by Viennese designer and illustrator Leonhard Lass. If you like him, you should also check out fellow Brazilian Rubens, we had an article on him before.

If the music got your mouth watery for more already, watch out for Cid Rim’s forthcoming 7-inch On! on The Loud Minority. Though it’s still four months away, you better put it on your list as 300 copies sell quickly.
