What's Cooking?

The PAR-2 Crew members have safely returned to their respective homes after the gigs in Japan. "The Long Walk Home" release shows have been most excellent so far and the Earth Energy Party put on by Psy16 in Yamanashi was definately a highlight with Jikkenteki playing two live sets and Hydraglyph from South Africa coming over for an excellent live set as well. For some pictures from Earth Energy check out Psy16's page HERE

Zekazy has been busy as of late. Outside of working on his album which will be released here hopefully this winter, he will also have a track on the next PAR-2 compilation (see below) and has also released "Worker Or Wacko", a serious dancefloor storming, on Yellow Sunshine Explosion's new compilation "Tranceformers". Check it out HERE

Jikkenteki has been busy as well, despite having just released "The Long Walk Home" in June, he has work well underway for his next album "Symplicity" as well has working with Katapult on a new PAR-2 number. In addition he will be playing at the next outdoor Earth Energy party on September 16th-18th, again in Yamanashi. Watch here and the Psy16 page above for more info on this.

As was alluded to above, PAR-2's next comp is entering the final phases of production. Titled "Mainspring Motion", this compilation will feature tracks and collaborations from Prosect, E-Mantra, Amygdala, Symphonics, 11, Zekazy, Fizzy, Anakoluth and Jikkenteki. As always, the sound will be varied and anything but the "usual", ranging from pure goa madness to progessive smoothness to crazy experimental grooves. Look for a fall release.

Best to all from PAR-2 Productions
