Back in 2015, by the same time TAETER´s debut release on vinyl came out (“THE HUNT HAS GONE FULL CIRCLE” 7” on Narcolepsia), André Coelho (SEKTOR 304/METADEVICE) created some material based on the reinterpretation of various source materials used on the recording sessions for that same 7”. The idea was to do a special tape edition, but it never materialized. Recently, André exhumed his archives and suggested the reactivation of this forgotten plan. Nicola contributed with alternative versions of the two tracks that came in that original release, and the collaboration took shape in its updated incarnation.
While listening to this material now, it is safe to say it has passed the test of time, retaining its atmosphere of uneasiness, its pulsating decrepitude, the personal recounts of over-sexualized failure whispered to our ears by a sweaty entity. André shreds Nicola´s seed unto a more arid and diluted fluid, infusing it with a twisted sci-fi vibe, a vile mechanical eroticism that deforms and suffocates its host. Minimal and obsessive, “slow and steady”, degraded past recognition as the blurry memories of an old late night amateur webcam session.
Making sense on its own, as a consistent “new” record, or as a companion object for TAETER completists – there must be some out there, right? – “THE HERMENEUTICS OF THE HUNT HAS GONE FULL CIRCLE” should hopefully help to expose more listeners to this excellent project, and particularly to that defining moment in its discography, still one of the absolute best Power Electronics 7” in recent years.
