€11,95
  • Availability:

This is a cassette that Hugh B, a dub writer/delay effector maker from Sydney, Australia, will release from the ambient label Not Not Fun in LA, USA in October 2023.

Contains 8 smoky dub to dub techno songs. DL code included.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Live From The Gonsch introduces Sydney electronic auteur (and OTIS label boss) Hugh B's little-known domestic dub mode. The album's eight songs are: Rhythmic modular loops are layered with distorted bass, moody guitars, and occasionally raspy vocals, all recorded on a two-track cassette with homemade FX (Hugh B runs a delay pedal business) and was dubmixed.Shaded with echo and spring reverb, the whole thing has a loose, juicy, slimy feel that can be glimpsed through tall grass.

The title alludes to the Skylab radio show that Burridge recently quit, ``Mornings From The Gonsch.''The show's dub-adjacent daydreams of time, money, stagnation, and absence hum under a bleached blue sky, only half audible. "

Not Not Fun:

"Live From The Gonsch showcases Sydney head (and OTIS label boss) Hugh Burridge aka Hugh B's lesser known domestic dub mode, low-slung and low volume, tracked on headphones during hidden hours, often with his daughter strapped to his chest. The album's eight cuts are built from rhythmic modular loops layered with snaky bass, swampy guitar, and occasional hazed vocals, dub-mixed to 2-track cassette through hand-built FX (Burridge runs a boutique delay pedal business). The mood throughout is loose, soupy , and slippery, shaded in echo and spring reverb, glimpsed through tall grass.

The title alludes to Burridge's recently retired Skylab radio show, “Mornings From The Gonsch,” which repped a spectrum of home recorded modes, from bedroom dub to hybrid new age to lost synth songcraft. Here he blends these muses into a woozy fusion all his own, dub-adjacent daydreams of time, money, stasis, and absence, hummed and half-heard beneath a bleached blue sky."
