7th chapter of the Batch series, collaborative releases started in 2015 and now arrived at its olympic shape : 7 tracks of rework/remix/reboot of various artists coming from Solium Records' catalog - a label focusing on experimental-rap / noise and obscure productions based in the North West of France - made by 7 producers coming from the electronic/noise catalog of Light Item – A North Italian label intrinsically tied with the experimental hip-hop duo Uochi Toki and with a very personal vibe of local noise / electronics and hip-hop.
Add to that 7 producers never released by any of the two labels : Here is BA7CH delivered to the world.
The tracks were carefully selected among the current and past releases from Solium Records : experimental, angry, distorted, hard hitting rap from which the acapellas have been reworked, deconstructed to their core and tortured to create new tracks, under the sublimating prism of Light Item.
The result is a 26 minutes tape and cd with the condensed work of more than 20 people painting a new landscape of electronic / noise / abstract / hip-hop, pushing this material to a new border, building with this album the exact new vision pursued by both labels through this collaboration pushing a bit more boundaries of hip-hop with a noisy, synthetic, dark and overwhelming production, yet progressive and aerial.
The album will be available on cassette tape (Solium) and CD (Light item), both coming with a screen printed poster. The whole artwork was drawn by Teleki atelier iteinerante.
