Dr.Nojoke – AI | MAT ed.02
Limited double 12” with two art-prints in clear PVC sleeve
AI. The second output in the MAT editions series on CLIKNO is a bass-heavy affair over four sides by Dr.Nojoke. Separated into the EPs “Anonymity” and “Intimacy” it is due to be released on August 7th, 2020.
The digital world and social media, in particular, change our perception and behaviour; our values and morals undergo a transformation and shift. How much are we still anonymous? How much are we still intimate (with us/with others)? What do anonymity and intimacy mean to us today?
MUSIC. Dr.Nojoke shows on AI his deeper, darker, bassier and trippier side.
A. Petar Plet Plete is based on a Bulgarian tongue twister. The chant hypnotizes with its layers and endless repetitions over a straight Maurizio-esque groove with melodic percussion in odd time signature. Nivin grooves elegantly with typical Dr.Nojoke clicks and sophisticated loops of a mysterious female voice, whose melody reminds slightly to Kraftwerk’s Man-machine era.
I. EOW and Nuknot are both intimate orgies of thick textures of reverberations and reflections as if space is folding in itself and time are on hold. EOW seduces with a heavy kick-drum groove and a triplet bassline underneath crawling through unconscious memories. Woe! Nuknot is carried by eternal atmospheres, a low-end bassline and a repetitious glassy clang, that can drive a crowd into madness – inspired by Moritz von Oswald and Deadbeat. Nuknot ends in an ambient lock groove
ART. CLIKNO curates artworks from living artists. For MAT ed.02 we are proud to present digital artist Lucas Gutierrez and his work “Your Mesh.sgl”, originally part of the exhibition ▬ Knowledge Of ▬ at Aperto Raum Berlin, 2017. An exhibition and dialogue exploring the term “knowledge” and the manner in which self-studies are structured within the contemporary artistic approach.
TEXT. MAT02 comes with writings to anonymity and intimacy from the Danish philosopher, actress and choreographer Marianne Kjaer Klausen.
The album celebrates also the 15th CLIKNOversary of Dr.Nojoke.
