British leftfield artist Dead Fader returns to Parachute.
John Cohen aka Dead Fader first arrived on the label in 2016, with It Works 1 - a brace of warping, high energy electronic music compositions that while largely unclassifiable in genre, maintain a gloriously vibrant, emotive sensibility that owes much to early IDM excursions, and the more abstract tenets of the Krautrock genre. That said - the artist cites anything from Kanye West to Bach and back again as informing the decidedly experimental and potentially confounding work - and his latest offering for the Milan based label continues to riff on this open ended mesh of influence to great effect.
The original material is buoyed by a formidable remix package, featuring Downwards affiliate JK Flesh - who turns in a caustic reinterpretation of FYI; Roly Porter of Vex’d and Tri Angle fame, who takes on Raw Food; and Planet Mu’s Konx-Om-Pax, who’s reimagining of Life Cycle closes out proceedings. It’s an admirable line up, in keeping with the aesthetic concerns of Cohen’s excellent LP - and the chosen artists turn in respectful but wholly personal work - making for an excellent addition to growing Parachute discography.

Justin K. Broadrick's diversity of the music genres is incredible, from Godflesh, to Final, to Pale Sketcher. All of his music is original, and groundbreaking. He's truly a pioneer in the music industry with his abilities, talent, and individuality. I'll definitely look forward to hearing what will come next. 🙂👍🤙 Steelflange 72
