Discrepant:

"Discrepant presents another unique document of Kink Gong's electronic deconstructions this time stepping away from his usual South East Asia area of ​​adaptive and releasing some of his first re-interpretations and field recordings made in the late 90's in Tanzania, Africa."

Artist statement by Laurent Jeanneau, Berlin 2015 :

''December 1999, Tanzania. I had an appointment with James Stephenson an American friend from the 90s in NYC, he used to skip the American winter every year to be with the Hadzas bushmen and other Tanzanians tribes in Tanzania. Whilst there, James and I lost completely track of time and did not give a shit about what day Christmas was, or New Years for that matter- with the majority of the planet knowing they were heading into the 21st Century.
At some point end of December or early January 2000 (?) We asked a group of Hadzas we were hanging out with, “what's the date today?” None understood the question but one Hadza who had been sent to school in the early 70s answered that we must be in 1975!

Tanzania in 1999/2000, this intense trip away from all the millennium bullshit celebrations. I gathered all kinds of sounds, not only music, that expresses proximity and that was the first time I decided I was going to remix those raw recordings into a decent soundscape. It was also the first time I was pleased with the result- to go into a direction of redefining world music, away from the commercial clichés. This has been the direction I've taken and focused on ever since with the recomposing of my Asian recordings
