about

Ambike was recorded at the Botany Bay studio as far back as 2011, almost immediately after moving in there and setting up my equipment. For a myriad of reasons, it is only just now seeing a release, six years later. Prefaced by the Phi-Lips EP, which collected four alternative versions of Ambike's opening cut, this EP is perhaps the most accessible and "musical" Bike has ever been. Created entirely live using only three drum machines, two digital synthesizers (one of them a prototype), a small mixer and a handful of FX units, it vacillates between thick dancefloor-ready bass rattlers and more experimental dub-tinged cuts that bring to mind moments from the first two Autechre LPs, among many other things. From here, it is my express intention to broaden Bike's release schedule and continue forward from this specific point of origin with the project, as I've expanded my studio since 2011 considerably and am curious what Bike might sound like, coaxed from the machines currently at hand...
