DO U WANT TO MOVE BACK TO LDN. is a collaborative project between John T. Gast and Solomon Garçon. The project uses experimental techniques borrowed from noise, dub, classical, and film score. Their live performances take an improvisational approach which, is echoed in the recorded output available at DOUWANTTOMOVEBACKTOLDN.COM
“Dhangsha” (Bengali for ‘destruction’) is the project and alias of electronic artist and educator Aniruddha Das. Working at the interface of bass culture and experimental noise, he creates a kind of "mutant dancehall" where distorted 'alien' motifs evolve over sparse but heavy beats. He explores minimalism, repetition and fragmentation, instigating turbulent interactions between metered rhythm and non-metric noise. Aside from releasing a clutch of albums, including “Live at Spirit of Gravity” and “Aberrant,” the latter with maverick label Hard Return, he has contributed to compilations by Syrphe, Avon Terror Corps, Iklectik and Industrial Coast. He is featured on the vinyl compilation “Disruptive Frequencies,” on Nonclassical which received a number of enthusiastic reviews, including in The Wire.
