Anklepants delivers his
infection selection for Ikimasho!
Ikimasho! cordially invites you to meet Anklepants – the first of many faces of Dr. Reecard Farché, the devious mastermind and shapeshifting convict bred deep in the darkwood of the Australian bush that later absconded to Rise to the Summit of the übergründé.
Born in 2008 but producing music in many forms for over a decade beforehand, Anklepants has steadily released over 20 singles, EPs and full-length albums on his own Qwerty Records imprint, with more recent releases on Love Love Records and Detroit Underground. Actively performing all over Europe over the past five years in support of diverse artists such as Christian Fennesz, Dopplereffekt, Luke Vibert, and Lory D, he’s just back from his first invasion of the US – with UK and Australian parties planned later this year.
In the run-up to his forthcoming release – Social-Patching-And The pixel Pageant Facéd Boy – I asked Farché what he thinks of Japan, as well as to throw me a bunch of videos of stuff that he’s into. And if you’re not familiar with Anklepants, well… check out the video below. Enjoy. (Incidentally, the first Ikimasho! pic he sent me was a bit too insane so I bailed on featuring it. Mail me if you wanna see it.)
Anklepants’ new 2xLP Social-Patching-And The pixel Pageant Facéd Boy is released on 14 September on Love Love Records.
“I would love to travel to Japan, there is nothing I’m not interested in about the place and culture … , i would love to play there , and i think they may love or hate myfacé ..there have been some offers to go there but none have turned out so far.
“Yes of course my music is influenced by japan , most of the electronic instruments used in todays electronic music are or direct descendants of their classic drum machines and synthesisers , these machines have pretty much shaped the direction of most contemporary electronic music in my opinion , whether we are talking about melodic content or rhythmically, these devices have set the guidelines that most people work within or strive to break from today ..
“Aside from this realm I’m also very interested in Japanese scales / temperaments , and have used Japanese scales such as Hirajoshi on some of my new unreleased music.”
