Vessel Order Artwork

Order Of Noise


Cat. Number: TRI ANGLE17

Release: 15th October 2012

In the past trying to pin down Vessel’s constantly evolving sound has never been an easy task, and with the release of his debut album it’s become a whole lot harder. In the past 12 months Vessel, aka, 22 year old Sebastian Gainsborough, has been introducing people to his sound via a series of 12” releases on a number of forward thinking, underground labels with each release confounding the expectations of those trying to get a grasp on what exactly he was doing. Order Of Noise is the culmination of his first exploratory steps as an artist, and the album Tri Angle Record’s believed Vessel was building up to. It signals the arrival of an innovative and intensely unique, young, electronic producer who has developed a sound that still has the potential to confuse and confound, but one that is now identifiable as being very much his own.

Using techno and house as a jumping off point Vessel manages to twist these things into something unconventional and alien, often creating music that sounds as if it’s rhythmically out of control when in fact it’s all tightly controlled chaos. It’s a testament to Vessel’s talent how he manages to rein all his ideas and sounds in with so much thoughtful precision. Veering from the spaced out, futuristic dub sounds of ‘Stillborn Dub’, to the pulsating mystical ambience of ‘Aries’, through to tracks like ‘Lache’ and ‘Court Of Lions’ which seem to invert the traditional notions of what a club track should be, Order Of Noise is an album saturated in ideas that manages to stand out as a wholly coherent statement of intent for the future.



Unsound & CMJ Occurrences…

This week one of the best music festivals in the world, Unsound, kicks off in Krakow, Poland. We’re very excited to have committed something of an unofficial takeover of the festival, with no less than 5 Tri Angle acts scheduled to perform. Those acts happen to be Evian Christ, Fatima Al Qadiri, Vessel (whose debut album ‘Order Of Noise’ is out today!), The Haxan Cloak, and brand new signing WIFE., whose appearance at Unsound this week will actually be his first ever live performance. Check here for details about when everyone will be playing.

Sticking with the festival theme, Holy Other will be finishing off his US tour with a couple of appearances at CMJ in NYC. On Friday he’ll be performing at the Pitchfork event at Villain in Brooklyn, alongside Death Grips, DIIV, and Joey Badass to name a few, and on Saturday he’ll be headlining La Poisson Rouge with amazing support from Autre Ne Veut and Vatican Shadow. Aside from the NYC dates, this week Holy Other will be stopping off to play some headlining shows in Oberlin and Philadelphia beforehand. Check the events section for dates and venues.

As well as all this Balam Acab, The Haxan Cloak (supporting Liars) and oOoOO are continuing on with their separate tours of Europe. They might be in a town near you very soon!

Vessel’s debut album ‘Order Of Noise’, out on Monday

Vessel’s debut album ‘Order Of Noise’ is officially almost here. Set to hit stores this Monday (October 15th), the album is available on 2xLP, CD and digitally. Check out some of the overwhelmingly positive things people have had to say about the album so far…

“One of the most engaging and gripping techno albums of the year.”Resident Advisor (4 1/2 stars)

“Order of Noise shows how to balance the two extremes without committing to one single constant, and that anyone can make an original noise, but to make one that’s accessible takes skill.”Drowned In Sound (8/10)

“The imperative to physically engage listeners still lies at the heart of Vessel’s approach and is key to its essential appeal. Through all these channels, we’re witnessing a conscious disassembling of club genres.”The Quietus

You can find ‘Order Of Noise’ in Rough Trade, Boomkat, Bleep, iTunes and all other good record specialists.
