For their second release and debut 12″ record – following the excellent LL.M. 001 tape, Münster-based imprint LL.M. return with a four-track split, courtesy of Berlin producer Annanan and Manchester pair Space Afrika.
Framing Annanan’s ruffian techno-breaker ‘Willis‘ into an altered black-and-white scenario, Fabian Maahs’ video goes well past the basic illustration.
Somewhere between Buñuel’s Un Chien Andalou (NSFW) and Cunningham’s Rubber Johnny, Maahs delivers a compelling vision of the human body as subjected to musical forces through fragmentary perspectives: a dislocated torso furling and unwinding along bruising kicks, faces dissolving between multiple light-masks and tree-leaves projections pulsing like radio waves while fleshly shapes keep distorting under magnifying glass views.
LL.M. 002 is released via LL.M. on October 20th, pre-order a vinyl copy from Noorden.
