Superflat Single #6 / self oscillate


From the digital wastelands of Germany comes Self Oscillate, the artist behind our first non-Canadian superflat single. He's also one of the musicians behind Signalform / Dron, who are collaborating with Tachikoma on an upcoming full-length.

Self Oscillate is, quite simply, a fetishist: he's obsessed with the analog dinosaurs that roamed the earth during the Paleolithic era of synthesis. He likes to hide out with his synthetic fossils in his nuclear-proof bunker 300 feet below the earth's surface: but just for a change, he made this track while thinking about booze and playing with Reaktor on his laptop, adjacent to the beach. Good times.

I remember when I was a little younger, people who liked Rock music called people who liked Rap music "wiggas". And in turn, The Rap kids would curb the Rock skids into a fancy mess. It was a beautiful wheel of taste that spun at speeds that only a hummingbird could keep track of. Which brings me to The new Superflat single. I remeber when people where content to just listen to good music, and didnt feel the need to go out and try and duplicate it. Now everybody with a digital i-music generater super pod 2000, is a damn maestro of inter-racial navigations. How about we stop making worth while music, and continue dressing the part. It worked for decades, and it is making my mouth dry.

ps - I also think we should start ganging up on "screamo". It was fun at first, but now its the cause of I.C.D.
