'Time Team' Out Now
Slugabed - 'Time Team' Out Now
Posted on 08/05/2012
"Hexagonal crystals have a unique directionality," says Slugabed, "which must be aligned and oriented with Earth's spin axis for every crystal in the inner core." This idea led him to try a computational experiment. If all the crystals must point in the same direction, why not one big crystal?
Could an iron ball 1,500 miles across be a single crystal? Unheard of until now, the idea has prompted realisation that the temperature-pressure extremes of the inner core offer ideal conditions for crystal growth. Slugabed's high-pressure laboratories have conducted numerous experiments to test these theories.
The article Time Team is a concise documentation of these experiments.
Greg Feldwick is 23 years old and from Bath. He makes noises as Slugabed. His music is suffused with a unique mix of humour, next level production, dancefloor smarts and melancholic emotion. Asked to explain Time Team, Feldwick responds that, “it's to do with deep feelings about mostly inexpressible things.” It is indeed an album full of feeling and warmth and humor, a remarkable feat for a record composed mainly on synthesisers and drum machines. You will be hearing a lot more of Slugabed.
Time Team is available now at the Ninjashop and iTunes, on CD, DL (including FLAC and 24bit WAV formats)and 2LP (including a bonus green third 12" vinyl). You can also listen to an album minimix on SoundCloud.
Slugabed also put together a Hidden Depths of Ninja Tune mix for FACT magazine here, and you can grab a ticket for his show at Fabric on 16 May, as part of Ninja Tune / Tiger Beer / Black Atlantic's Hidden Depths show, here.
Something witty about crystals or whatever nonsense we were banging on about earlier.
