record 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.

last 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.

record of tides is not scheduled for further live events recently (nothing is likely for 2021)
but is expected to return to gelsenkirchen for the szeniale festival on august 20, 2022.



recordoftides.com 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.




the 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 track has vanished as single track from bandcamp and is now available as unlisted bonus track of the 'gimmicks ep'.
click the picture above to get there.

unfortunately we cannot present a video snippet now because of technical difficulties,
but we´d like to share the set list of this special gig:

record of tides retuns to perform live at consol, gelsenkirchen.
after the postponement of the 2021 szeniale festival caused by the on-going covid pandemic we did not expect to announce live dates for this summer.
on august 12 record of tides will perform an live set at consol in gelsenkirchen supported by lemon & pilgrim.
(even if both sets have been announced as live sets it is not sure if a projection is technically possible at this venue.)
the night is curated by artist roman pilgrim and is part of the summer stage festival.

update 2021-08-10: as the stage and light situation is not suitable for video projection we expect a visual projection via screen.
sven piayda and the studio have been working very hard on this solution, we hope you enjoy!

after 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.





the 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.)

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/purchases-ep





the 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.

the free ep is out june 11.

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/gimmicks-ep






the series finishes with the ‘purchases’ album available as download and compact disc distributed via bandcamp only.
the album contains 16 tracks available in different digital formats.

the album is out june 18.

recordoftides.bandcamp.com/album/purchases


the 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.

update 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!


a big thank you to thierry, once again!
have a look on the full review over at nocovision.blogspot.com




check out the video for 'brazil pot one' as directed by sven piayda.





update 2021-07-02: the ‘purchases’ album was supposed to be the final release of the ‘purchases’ series, now zany music adds another ep to 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.
