theFranks – a long time sound addict, a mastering engineer, a producer and a sound designer - living in Berlin and mostly created releases in collaborations. Some remixes indicated that there will be a project of its own and this one is the first appearance as theFranks.
“Sometimes a track sounds like a diary about a chapter of your own life. This one is a unique experience.”
During the precedent years, they changed their workflow from computer based setup to a playground of real machines. “The music doesn’t sound better using (modular) synths and hardware effects but the process of recording makes it sound different and more unique for us. And of course it is more fun! The center of this track is created by our modular system using a prototype module from a friend – after listening to the patch, which was playing itself for an hour, we decided to record it divided into 3 or 4 parts. So we played each instrument live and recorded it. Afterwards we didn’t change much of the recordings cause the emotional impact of the recorded sounds was there from the beginning, so we shaped them a bit and added some depth using noise mainly.”
„entremedio“ is a deep, playful, dense and minimal track at the same time– slow, organic and raw. Driven by melancholic harmonic parts and polyrhythmic percussions, the break opens the main melodic element for the first time just to melt into more harmonic content afterwards.
uricane was partner in crime while recording the main parts together with thefranks at his studio. He took the recordings to Tel Aviv and his genious composition brought the raw material to a slightly different result. His „feel and loathing“ remix lets you feel the sun on your body while dragging you into his dreamful sphere!
“ENTREMEDIO” will be released as one-piece picture disc vinyl! and digitally on all major platforms. elsewhere will provide high quality 24bit WAV files at bandcamp in addition the vinyl release.
