CC

CC is a solo recording project from Brisbane QLD Australia. Anonymity requested, Essential Minerals has released a C-94 tape as part of the 'Composite Beings' series (EM-CB-02) - an impenetrable & relentless artefact based around controlled feedback & amplifier manipulation. An absolutely singular artist whose prolific output for well over a decade now via seemingly endless projects has influenced so, so many local artists while keeping an inspired & obscured, masked approach to any kind of recognition. Not to be missed!

DITCHDOG

Ditchdog is the solo project of Samantha A. - Brisbane underground experimental artist more commonly known from acts such as Terorist, Toilet Roll Dolls, Xynthia, Icing Eater and many more. 'irl ix' is the follow-up to her debut net-only release ‘Done’ out late 2018 by Intruder Alert (Warsaw) and hopefully a preview of more to come.

LG

LG is a Brisbane-based experimental interdisciplinary artist and has just released a second tape on Essential Minerals (EM-CB-03): While the untitled debut (EM7) incorporated two piano pieces into a ghostly, intangible (literally) warped artefact 'Dysfunctional Aesthetics' strips away the noise & hiss to form a 6-part, otherworldly document with her impermeable distinct, singular voice & vision.

See: Slupr, Reptile, a founding member of Shooga (RIP).

RAUM

Raum is Rachael Archibald (Raquel, Lilith) & Timothy Green (I'm A Cop, et al) - launching their debut record (cassette) via Essential Minerals (EM-CB-01), one of the most arresting & beautiful tapes put to the label it features a heavily manipulated multi-session recording on the A side with a live set in a cavernous drain on the B side. Don't miss this performance!

PHANTOM CHIPS

Phantom Chips is the solo, multi-faceted project of Tara Pattenden of the legendary noise band Kunt, the Monster Zoku Onsomb collective, FCKN BSTRDS, and so many more. Featuring an array of homemade synthesizers, samplers, wearable noisemakers producing a freeform, mangled noisy mess encouraging audience participation at times Phantom Chips' live performances are a chaotic celebatory event not to be missed.
