Kingbastard :: Error EP (Odd John)

Chris Weeks‘ Kingbastard moniker continues to explore robotic electronics and vast sound scrapping through circuitry. This three-track EP further details the artists’ unique ability to craft a succinct collection of decomposed tracks.

Elsewhereness revisited #6 here come the warm jest

Elsewhereness revisited is an occasional feature documenting the drift at the margins: ambient gasbagging, tube-d, cloud-ed, and camp-ed up, complete with companion mix, Elsewhereness revisited #6.  Serving suggestions for lovers of electronic pioneers, or in this case those carrying on the torch, and for hand-finish fanciers: Agri Montana (Café Kaput) is inspired by Alpine landscapes, and, you’d’ve thought, […]

ALAN LOCKETT :: Slings the Wooze Renewed mix

2016! Reeling from The Shock of the New, Igloo’s Wooze-slinger Alan Lockett (aka Mist-maxer albient) is moved to review and renew (or take refuge, depending on the view…) Revisiting the sound+vision of Slings the Wooze and Slings the Wooze Anew, with a score or more clips of stunned ambience, hypnagogue drone and aether tone, in […]

Chris Weeks :: Trip (Odd John) / The Cloud (Self-Released)

Weeks has pursued a predilection for exploration of the floating and psychic vibrations of space-scapes, tranches of droning chord continua and brooding bass frequencies dwelt on, when not taken on minimalism-fuelled detours, prey to particulate play, subject to unreadable communications and electronic interference. The back catalog* of UK soundsmith Chris Weeks is voluminous for one whose artistic footprint has […]

Kingbastard :: XY34R5 “A Decade of Bastardism!” (Odd John)

Clearly in the last ten years Kingbastard has covered a great deal of sonic territory and this collection is an excellent way to dip ones toes into his ocean of sounds before diving headlong into his work. I’m late to the Kingbastard game. His album Data which came out earlier this year was a hard […]

Offered as a beautiful limited CD edition, Black Hole is the new release of sound designer and electronic musician Chris Weeks (aka Kingbastard.) Since 2005, this multi-faceted musician has published a great number of releases, mainly […]

Kingbastard :: Data (Odd John)

Data is a good mix of harsh sounds, glitch, ambience and solid 4×4 beats that will leave you puzzled if not ultimately pleased. With a name like Kingbastard (aka Chris Weeks) one might expect the music to sound like a cross between Venow and Gwar. But in fact Kingbastard’s Data sounds not unlike the industrial bastard […]

V/A :: Touched (Macmillan Cancer Support)

Curator Martin Boulton was apparently inundated with tracks when word got around about this release—a compilation in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support (an organization which improves the lives of those affected by cancer). An immense hard drive busting compilation featuring a mind boggling array of musical talent from across the globe. Curator Martin Boulton was apparently inundated […]

Kingbastard :: Lost Property (Herb)

Crackling static, digitally manipulated field recordings of birds, lovely chord progressions played on guitar and piano, and pastoral atmospheres await the Lost Property listener. I reviewed Kingbastard’s Brainfunk EP on Herb Recordings back in September 2011, so it seemed a natural thing to investigate his latest release on Herb, Lost Property. Initially, I was quite […]
