Sheppee - Hidden Partition : LRV-04 : 11
track DVD : limited
edition : £16.99
This release promises to bring a lot of attention to the 2-year old Lightrhythm
Visuals label. Their innovative (but silent) VJ Single Compilations, which came
out on DVD earlier this year, offer world audiences a vivid window into San
Francisco's enviable VJ subculture. Giving VJs the opportunity to use these
their own shows made Lightrhythm a widely recognized catalyst for the flow of
visuals between scenes in different cities.
Now, Hidden Partition firmly establishes Lightrhythm as an international force
in the audiovisual album arena. “Ben Sheppee is really pushing the VJ as
DJ metaphor on this release.” says Jon Schwark, co-founder of Lightrhythm.
It has 11 works of art, with remixes for the VJ. It’s also a compilation
of truly modern music that has a style and succeeds as an album in its own right.
Hidden Partition is in a position to be a landmark audiovisual moment - the first
disc that both DJs and VJs actually want to own and play. Music by UK producers
Bedouin Ascent (No Immortal Records) and Blockhead (Ninjatune) expand on the
tone set by artists from San Francisco’s Lowpro Lounge label and a memorable
track from longtime Lightrhythm collaborator Sewn. Not a dance floor knockout,
but perfect for DJs cultivating a more cerebral experience. Styles venture from
snappy melodic-glitch to ambient bordering on classical.
Remix artists D:Fuse, and *Spark (UK), and VJ Shinji (Japan)
hold their own next to top American acts like V2 Labs (part of OVT
visuals in Los Angeles), VJ Culture (of Dimension7) and Scott Pagano
(curator of the Reline DVD Series). Even the cover art is the result
of a collaborative project with design group SE3D, extending the
remix concept. All said, more than twenty artists contributed dozens
of DVD angles to this 'solo' album, with even more material hidden
in bonus areas awaiting discovery.
