Demdike Stare and Andy Votel’s live collaboration as Neotantrik to see limited vinyl release

By , Jul 5 2013

A five-track record documents Neotantrik gigs in Bristol, Rotterdam and Stockport.

Over the past year, Finders Keepers label boss Andy Votel and Sean Canty of cacophonous occultists Demdike Stare have teamed up for a clutch of live collaborations with singer and guitarist Jane Weaver and incognito producer N. Racker. As Neotantrik, they forge freeform electronic landscapes from scraps of kosmische and concrète, raw machine noise and soft ambient splashes.

Now the fruits of those performances are to see a vinyl release, limited to 500 copies, on Votel and Demdike Stare’s Pre-Cert Home Entertainment label, and it’s available on Boomkat now.

Votel recently launched a new label, Cacophonic, to put out weirder, denser music than found on Finders Keepers. Its opening gambit, 1959’s Musique Tachiste LP by Michel Magne, which is touted as one of the first French concept albums.

Meanwhile, Demdike Stare have made a few major gig announcements recently – they’ll be appearing at the London edition of the Unsound festival and, gloriously, in Ibiza as part of Richie Hawtin’s summer residency at Space.
