Shleekit Doss by Proc Fiskal announced on Hyperdub
After last year’s excellent ‘Insula’ album, Proc Fiskal returns to Hyperdub with the six track EP Shleekit Doss, due to b released on the 23rd of September. In his own words, “a kind of representation of the time I was running the club night of the same name in Edinburgh.”
“These tunes represent the night’s ethos of genre-defiance and high-energy futuristic sets, ecstatic and transcendent while still being fun and stupid. I was getting my friends to play and I made all the posters on my phone - like this EP’s
artwork. I also started hoarding old FM synths which crop up a lot on the EP, and was reading a lot of sci-fi like Isaac Asimov’s ‘Foundation’, and ‘2001’. The night ran until last November when the bouncers and some punters got in a fight, the club got damaged, and unfortunately I got banned too.”
Through this mayhem and misdemeanour, Shleekit Doss feels like an oasis of calm; light, bouncy and melodic, the EP sees Proc developing the depth and range of his music in satisfying ways.
The album will be released on the 13th of September 2019.
