Japanese producer Ditch aka Shinichiro Kono showcases two more of is trademark Art-Noise/Minimal techno compositions, backed up with a percussion driven remix from the world renowned Fumiya Tanaka, much touted in the music press of the late nineties as the “Japanese jeff mills” - as if that really means anything ten years on! Since starting to produce in 2005 Ditch has appeared on numerous labels including Minibar, Safari Electronique and Microcosm to name but a few, and now we are very proud to announce his debut for Snork industries!

“Funcup Reipan” introduces us to the Ditch sound – Sparse and industrial, Stark and experimental Frequency shifts, build into heavy bass glitches, meanwhile chaotic sounds become more insistant and regulated.

Fumiya Tanaka turns up the heat with beats for the street, juxtaposed with stereo stabs, and the subterranean bass from the original, running clockwork fashion like a minimal stopwatch.

“After” then turns up a tearing bass tone overlaid with a funky hat and LFOsnare combo rubbing against what sounds like heavily effected field recordings – the bass then slowly becomes an incessant funky groove guaranteed to get the most hardened chin stroker grooving away on the floor...

Snork Enterprises is a base for modern underground electronic techno music. It's not at all about being pretentious or arty for the sake of it. It's about real depth on the dance floor.
