Tangerinecat (UK via Ukraine)
tAngerinecAt matches the Ukranian-born Purpurovsky’s hurdy-gurdy, voice, provocative lyrics, and production with the sound transformation, synths, bagpipes, and ethereal whistles and recorders of musician and sound designer Paul Chilton. Originally formed in Ukraine, where Chilton lived and studied music and the band has historical and musical roots, tAngerinecAt are now based in the UK. Both artists contribute samples, ambient noises, and processed beats that evoke DIY techno, raw punk rock, and spectral folk traditions in equal measure.
Ferenc Fabian is highly influenced by psychedelic, progressive genres like post rock (Caspian) or minimalistic music (Steve Reich), but also the wonky beats of Los Angeles (Fly Lo) or the UK scene (Jon Hopkins, Four Tet). That’s why he calls his music post-techno. Energetic, organic wonky techno grooves with dreamy, emotionally charged synth textures and soundscapes.
