    London based label SM-LL presents its first main label 12" release from label owner Martin J Thompson a.k.a Pokk! with remix by Yves De Mey (Sandwell District, Line, Spectrum Spools).

    Pokk! has also released with SonuoS (2013), An Epic (2014), and previously with Dragon’s Eye Recording (2011) as half of minimal electronic duo Mimosa Moize with his wife Lucia H Chung. Pokk! also records under projects including Typeface and Reloc, a new collaborative project with Chung.

    Pokk! - SM-LL 0000 is the first main label 12” release on SM-LL. Furthering his deep interests in rhythm, repetition and reduction, Pokk! crafts white noise with clinical tone bass percussive elements to form shifting patterns alike that of Steve Reich, and creates a particular sonic rawness parallel to ‘The Works’ by JB³ . This 4-track release spans from intense rhythmical drive such as ‘203’, calm and broken structures found in ‘172’ and ‘207’, to a classic Yves De Mey heavy bass pulsating remix created using a Nord Modular patch provided by Pokk! Their mutual passions for the Nord Modular system brings Pokk! and Yves De Mey together, crossing creative paths for the first time.

    SM-LL, now in its 3rd year, has slowly established its reputation through numerous digital (Default) and small-run vinyl (Batch) releases. SM-LL continues to operate around core values: small tokens of exchange, mutual respect, a passion for music and ultimately creating and releasing music for the right reasons.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Pokk! - SM-LL 0000 via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

"…think Kompakt, but uses a much more austere sound, so one could also imagine early Alva Noto, ø, Pan Sonic, early Thomas Brinkmann, SND (though perhaps not as early) or Goem, or releases on the latter's label Audio.NL (if anyone remembers that)… superficially liking this doesn't seem to be an option I would think" - Frans de Waard

"a true masterpiece where static, rigidly phased rhythms intertwine with one another… glitch noises which bring to mind neutrotransmitters seem like a collection of inorganic rhythms" - Yoshio Machida

"Clinical electronic minimalism executed by Pokk!…nodding to Joey Beltram’s JB³ project as much as Nicola Ratti’s dancing dust figures or Ilpo Väisänen’s Kangaroo 10”s…heaving mass of Yves De Mey’s 228r mix…sorta like a melted Senking or Mika Vainio piece." - boomkat.com

"…complete with banging remix from Yves De Mey, Pokk! makes an extremely minimal electronic music that is reduced down to only its essential parts. For fans of Autechre and SND." - normanrecords.com

"…reminiscent of AUDIO NL" - diskunion.net

"…Pokk!…unique geometric hard rhythmic inorganic minimalist electronic particle…originality full of experimental sound… Recommendation! ! !" - newtone-records.com

"…if you just like me are a bit of a serious collector of experimental eletronica, then the epic nice SM-LL 0000 should end up in your collection" - DJ Finn of Tomland, (SonuoS, Culture Box resident DJ)
