Review: Bookworms' new LP Appropriation Loops (A Love Story) explores appropriation of music and culture throughout time. Borrowing ideas from modern classical, jazz, minimal techno and granular synthesis, he taps into the feedback loop of contemporary art. Real name Nicholas Dawson, the New York City based producer's been producing music under the Bookworms moniker since 2012. His early work appeared on the Ron Morelli's L.I.E.S. and currently he runs a party and label called Confused House. The party is notable for its focus on hardware techno from NYC and abroad. The label has released collaborative records from Bookworms and his L.I.E.S. cohort Steve Summers. Like William Basinski's tape loops morphing over time, appropriation loops are recurrent, fluctuant feedback loops in popular and unpopular culture. Rae Sremmund talks about how they're the new black rock stars with guitars in 2016's "Black Beatles", but The Beatles appropriated black American rhythm and blues music from the American South to begin with. Kraftwerk's mechanic interpretation of Motown hits of 60s and 70s Detroit was later echoed by Detroit techno producers who subsequently put the funk back in it and made it more minimal. Detroit techno, for one, could never have been without the device of appropriation... but the device is often misused. People want to know where their chicken comes from (free range, grass fed, no antibiotics) but they don't want to know where their music comes from. Where does it come from? Trace the appropriation loops to find out.

Review: Bank Records is the new label platform from New York's Entro Senestre and its first release is the debut album from Bookworms! Soak all that information in for a second or two and it makes for quite an impressive statement from Bank; spend some time with Xenophobe, the album in question and you will be even more impressed! The album's seven tracks gather together material Bookworms, aka Nik Dawson, has been accruing since 2008, and as a whole it makes for a pretty far reaching listen. Techno is the starting point for Dawson to head off down some odd bookwormholes, be it the slowed down industrial slug of "U More" to the incessant jackhammer beat down of "You Say So" via the more meditative sounds of "In Character" and "Showering". In amidst all this, there is also the 19 minute epic "STE-027"!!! Wonderful artwork too!
