Contort to release Karl O’Connor mixtape
Hayley and Samuel Kerridge’s label will release a live recording of a Regis set in Berlin.
Late last year it was revealed Contort, a free, Berlin-based Sunday party run by husband and wife duo Hayley and Samuel Kerridge, was to become a label by releasing the latter’s second album Always Offended Never Ashamed. Throughout the event’s two year tenure, Contort have always maintained a freshness to their line-ups inviting well-to-lesser-known DJs to embrace their maxim of showcasing the more experimental side of electronic music. Since their first event in March 2012, higher profile artists like Cristian Vogel, Bill Kouligas, Milton Bradley and individual members of Cassegrain and Dadub have played alongside Golden Pudel’s Nina, Jealous God mix contributor Moopie, SØS Gunver Ryberg, and Opium Hum, to Karl O’Connor and Juan Mendez’s Sandra Electronics project.
Today it was revealed via Kerridge’s Facebook page that a jungle and drum and bass heavy set Regis played at Contort in November 2014 will be released on tape under the name Post Crucifixion. As a press release writes: “Around 7pm on sunday 12th November in a dark corner of Berlin, Karl O’Connor announced himself at Contort #4. Ever the protagonist, he had set out with one aim in mind, and what followed suprised everyone, working his way through an enviable selection of Jungle and Drum & Bass.” This first cassette release also marks the beginning of a series of collectable live recordings taken directly from Contort events, with artwork coming from Tanstaafl Records co-founder John Osborn.
Contort will release Post Crucifixion by Regis on April 2.
