Eco Futurism Corporations appears to be many things, although I believe we can agree that this label dedicated to artists such as LORD Ø, HERBARIUM, tropical interface, SHYQA, Gem Thee, & soullets whom produce (what is being herald as) "Eco Grime", presents much more than just a bunch of over saturated sounds rehashed from a familiar experience. We have seen replicants of similar creations, in the past few weeks. In the shapeless dynamic which we exist a bit abstract media reconnects me to certain truths, in audible form. My first few listens introduced me to something unconventionally dynamic [unless you're a practitioner of meditation, or eastern medicinal healing], not in terms of production per se but rather - "application".
There is certainly no absence of fluidity, from the parade of gaseous chimes & symbols that expand into bright & vivid chirping echos of birds & insects. Tides pushing/pulling in splashes of waves crashing. Each sound used in a very versatile way to trump the samples used before the last. The production is meshed up well. It allows for very exciting and easy listening, I think it could be played in the against club tracks, from jersey club, to baltimore and footwerk artists. We shall see where these artists take their sound, but I believe it would fit nicely in some others hands as well. Take a listen to...
Q & A
EFC: Yeah, label was founded just a few months ago, but now we have 3 release in catalog, many singles on soundcloud and big plans for this year.
NN: May I have your names ?
EFC: This is due the fact that new wave of grime strongly relative with futurism's aesthetic, sometimes cyberpunk's conceptions. It's expressed in samples from cult films of the future like "Blade Runner" or "GITH" and ends with the title tracks. From the other side, eco futurism have a positive outlook for the future, utopia, the opposite post-apocalyptic and alternative to cyberpunk. We suggest another way... but we now not so popular.
NN: What similarities if any do you feel exist between Naturalism and Futurism?
NN: What sort of potentiality does social engineer J. Fresco bring to music with such utopian ideas that have surrounded the label, and are shaping it up to what it has already begun manifesting as?
NN: Do you believe the "Venus Project" J. Fresco, is as palpable a concept as an actuality, or is the grey area somewhere you wish to continue dwelling, amidst the concept?
EFC: Soon we release some stuff: tropical interface and SHYQA. And then by Gem Tree.
Collect compilation "Ecomodern vol. 2" by theme of eco collages. Also we wait publication of mix #ECOTEAM, where will be a lot of unreleased material, so there is only exclusive label tracks. This is minimum until the summer.
NN: How does 90's Science Fiction cyber hunter Predator fit into this situation?
