It's been almost a year since Demdike Stare finished their Tryptych of releases, and in the intervening months, Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty have been busy touring and gradually piecing together sounds for this new series: Elemental. After four limited edition vinyl installments, Elemental is now released as a 2CD album, including different versions of tracks that have appeared on the vinyl editions, plus extensive additional material -- making for a two-hour trip through dark, post-industrial terrain. Mastered and cut at Dubplates & Mastering, the packaging features specially-commissioned artwork by Andy Votel and comes as an oversized gatefold/6-page digifile.

Elemental is a series that is split into four parts: the first two parts, Chrysanthe and Violetta, are released together in 2011; and the last two, Rose and Iris, are sold and released separately in 2012, each pressed on a limited colored vinyl and available together in a double CD. The sounds of Elemental are even darker than the predecessor, Tryptych, series. Something supernatural, opaque and ghastly crawls beneath the crackling surface of the record, slithering like a fuzzy centipede inside your ear canal.
The haunting ambiance of Elemental will scare even the angriest ghosts away, shattering their fragile bones with the growling bass, and piercing the eye sockets with deadly shrapnel of sound. While concrete percussion seems to be absent, there's a skeleton of techno and even dubstep rhythm filled with hypnotic, ethnic and exotic elements. A beautiful addition to the celebrated catalog of obscure, esoteric and collectible sound.
Modern Love wants to point out that the material on the vinyl edition is altered from the double CD version compiling the series. This unique cutting contains some hidden locked grooves and specially commissioned artwork by Andy Votel. Highly recommended along with previous releases from Whittaker and Canty!
