of tides´s ‘battery ep’ was released on september 3 and differs a lot from previous
recordings as it abandons post hip hop to focus on drill’n’bass influenced
idm. the ep also features the track ‘concrete walls of gruga’ which is already
well-known as remix by we deserve this. now zany music drops a collection
of remixes by prominent artists exploring the possibilities of the track while
expanding it into numerous genres.
‘concrete walls of gruga’ has been
reworked by kratzwerk, we deserve this, konvlikt, wesenberg, primal scapes and
record of tides.
the origin of this production traces back to an anticipated
collaboration of kratzwerk and record of tides. guido richter a.k.a. kratzwerk
asked for stems of the track and a little later further artists joined the project
while using the same stems to adapt the track into their style. fun fact:
sven piayda plays guitar on the primal scapes remix on behalf of michael schreiber.
it was recorded during (yet unfinished) sessions for a new primal scapes album.
the track also features chris huff on bass.

gruga remixes’ from bandcamp.

more twisted. please enjoy, more live video snippets might be up soon.
thursday, august 12, record of tides performed an open air audio visual
live set at consol in gelsenkirchen supported by fellow live electronic artists
lemon & pilgrim. even as the stage and light situation was not suitable
for video projection sven piayda managed to show a visual presentation via screen.
the night was curated by visual artist roman pilgrim and is part of the summer
stage festival. fortunately fellowship artist michael schreiber took care
of documenting the event, so we are happy to hand over some audio and video
snippets of this great set to you. a live bootleg delivering the full audio
recording of this gig is likely but not scheduled yet.

but is expected to return to gelsenkirchen for the szeniale festival on august
is uploading incoming pictures of the performance. as there is more and more media
made available via this site, the webmaster is working on some new structures,
some links might not work properly recently, but these issues will be fixed
in the upcoming weeks.
show ended with a long, alternative and live improvised version of ‘beats over
rags’ followed by (a police sirens passing by and) the crowd cheering. the
track is now available (probably for limited time as single track) and will be
added to the ‘gimmicks ep’ as bonus track. a live bootleg delivering the full
audio recording of this gig is not scheduled yet but will be available via recordoftides.com. (the

featuring the original track, maybe even more remixes to come. for the meantime

massive problems within the last months concerning cancelled releases and shows
we are happy to announce new extensive material by record of tides on zany
music to be available on different media. the ‘purchases’ releases bundle
features all new tracks on vinyl, compact disc and download mostly based upon
samples expanding record of tides´ musical style towards post hip hop while still
being recognizable for his unique style. sven piayda started to work on the
new pieces back in december 2020 and finished the bundle in spring 2021. all
tracks have been mastered by michael schreiber to grand a transparent and punchy
sound for all tracks of the ‘purchases’ series.
upcoming series of releases starts with the ‘purchases ep’ available on limited
edition 12” black vinyl only. it features six tracks which also appear on
the album which is supposed to be released as final item. the vinyl is available
june 4 via bandcamp and exclusively from certain local record stores which will
be announced here. (the ep might be sold out quickly, you might contact us
for new items to arrive.)
vinyl release is followed by a digital only and free ‘gimmicks ep’ which contains
10 tracks which have been outtakes of the forthcoming album or additions after
the album was already finished. the ‘gimmicks ep’ features mabel e. hicast
and primal scapes (a.k.a. michael schreiber) on single tracks.
covers, sleeve designs and music videos are inspired by artworks or pictures which
appear on walls in animated shows like ‘family guy’ or ‘the simpsons’. sven
piayda started a series of works aiming to create pictures looking like they could
appear as artworks in theses animated shows. the videos escorting the album
also feature the flat cartoon look in combination with the computer animated
movements which also refers to contemporary animated tv shows.
2021-06-28: our dear friend thierry massard has delivered a review on ‘purchases’
via nocoVision calling it a masterpiece: … the less "wise" musicologists,
and producers of sounds with a wavering memory, nourished by the spoils of their
elders, must now worry about their durability - melodic lines supported or
skilfully crushed, rhythmics in precarious balance, ‘purchases’ has the advantage
of not immediately revealing all its luxuriant richness. […] satisfying themselves
with delight, with the happiness of a story once again in progress - masterpiece!
out the video for 'brazil pot one' as directed by sven piayda.
the ‘purchases’ album was supposed to be the final release of the ‘purchases’
series, now zany music adds another ep to the series: ‘the biggest trick ep’
features the track with the same name in an edited version which was originally
produced for the vinyl ep next to the edit version of ‘slides’ which was originally
released on the ‘purchases’ vinyl ep. the new release also features tracks
which have been produced in spring and already during the release period of the
series. once again michael schreiber has mastered all tracks of the ep which
has not been scheduled for release originally and is now added to the bundle.
‘the biggest trick ep’ is released on zany music and distributed by bandcamp,
the release is available as name your price download in different formats.
'purchases' vinyl ep is out on zany music and will be distrubuted via bandcamp.
additionally, we are delighted to announce that the vinyl ep will also be
available via onkel stereo in duisburg, germany. this lovely shop always
offers a great range of vinyls from punk to post rock and idm. next to getting
the new record of tides release, this is shop is worth a visit anyway!
2021-06-05: as the ‘purchases’ vinyl ep is already sold out via bandcamp there
are still copies (or maybe one or none) at onkel stereo. above you see a picture
of the lovely sticker and price tag onkel stereo´s sabine put on it: ‘reminds
of boc and aphex twin’, available for best price.
friend and fan rebecca gottschick got a rare copy of the ‘purchases’ vinyl ep
and has presented it on her instagram
channel. it is great to see it is bringing the joy it is supposed to.
2021-07-05: grischo schlüsi x record of tides: our friend grischo (well
known from annual heavy rotation lists) has delivered a kind of fan made video
adapting the track ‘illumination’ from ‘gimmicks ep’ to his beautiful slow
motion bee study ‘beelumination’. watch
the piece over at vimeo.
