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.
