having been blessed with some free time,
i decided to go looking through
the archives of recently submitted music
to proc and release something :D
the first thing that came to mind was an
album by yet another artist who hasn't
shown his face in a while, Shaun Phelps aka
Flat Affect!!!

having been a contender on the electronic
music scene, holding such
titles as "Grand Poobah of glitched noise and
international drone-champion" Flat Affects
music has touched many listeners lo the
past decade or so.
featured on a variety of labels, some of which
include (though certainly
are not limited to)...
Okkuluth, Smell the stench, snip snip,
Splatterfuck, sharpie and his own SP netlabel
(thats alot of "S" netlabels, btw)
he also is showcased on proc-rec's
sublabel, 4m@, a handful of times and
has even had a brief stint with proc
on some of our compilations and splits.
to call him "busy" is a severe understatement.

on this particular album we find
him in fine form, making music his slave
and bending the audio to do
his bidding!!!!
Gorgeous noise and drone tracks, all of which
(except for a remixed one) have an
approximate runtime of 10+/- minutes or so,
and feature remixes from such artists like
Buddhist on Fire!!!

A highly experimental album in
every regard, Shaun takes us into
the deepest recesses
of genuine noise landscapes, using very simple
tools but achieving maximum
effect (again, through almost saint-like simplicity).
Unfortunately, words cannot do this album
any justice whatsoever, and I am therefore left
to ask the listener to completely devote
your attention to every moment
of this album, not simply playing it
in your car speaker or in the background
at your home, until you have
completely seasoned yourself to the full
potential of what this album has to offer.

thus, should you find yourself searching
for one of the albums thats helps make
proc so great (i hate to brag, but it's the truth),
then BAM....here you go!
a brand new release from my main-man, Shaun!!!

noise will be noise
