Ataxia – the loss of muscle coordination, especially in the extremities – is what one must expect when exposed to the music of Ted Krisko and Eric Ricker.
Originally signed out of Detroit to Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom imprint, the duo recently has seen releases on the likes of Connaisseur and Thoughtless, especially after moving from their hometown to Brooklyn, where they are consistently featured in the Big Apple at the likes of TBA Brooklyn, Output and Verboten, while maintaining an international touring schedule that has featured LA’s Standard Rooftop, DC’s U Street Music Hall, Miami’s Electric Pickle and Treehouse, Chicago’s Smart Bar, and festival locations SXSW, Mutek, Movement, BPM, Burning Man, and more.
Regardless of where these time-traveling party-starters may reside, they embody and embrace the true essence of Detroit, from its rich music culture and community, to the deep voids of its decay.
Today’s exclusive premiere comes from Ataxia in the form of ‘Afternoon Acid’ – an urgent electro-tinged track packed with armoured drums and growling bass tones. Off Seth Troxler‘s “no frills” Play It Say It label, ‘Afternoon Acid’ comes off a 3 track sampler “The Acid” also featuring The Mekanism and Giacomo & Michelangelo.
“The Acid” is now available on 12″ vinyl and 11 March (digital) on Play It Say It
