Release Date: 17/2/2023
Part of a series of three new archival releases from Ndeya that showcase Jon Hassell and group in the late 1980s exploring a radical tangent on his Fourth World sensibility.
Psychogeography (subtitled 'Zones Of Feeling') is a situationist re-thinking of the 1990 City: Works Of Fiction album, a carefully edited sequence of alternate takes,
demos and studio jams put together by Jon Hassell in 2014 using Debordian philosophy as his guide.
This irreverent approach to the music reflects some of the key influences: specifically Public Enemy on the City album itself - Jon professed his love of the hyper-collaged sampledelic barrage of the Bomb Squad’s productions - and also the radical tape splicing that Teo Macero brought to his work with Miles Davis. The resulting sonic stew is a kind of futuristic sci-fi funk with an appropriately melted production aesthetic – instruments and samples jumping to the forefront then disappearing in the manner of the best dub records.
Available on vinyl for the first time, cut across four sides by Stefan Betke aka Pole. Gatefold vinyl edition includes download card and extensive sleevenotes.
