PRE-SALE of Praxis 60 - Nomex: Paroxism EP. important: special early bird price only till the end of May 2024!!

Noise artist and film maker Paul Kidd aka Nomex was behind some iconic experimental releases of the 90s, mainly on his own Adverse label, exploring the nature of physical nature of noise and vinyl, his preferred medium. Several of his records explored and articulated this interaction, such as Adverse 1 (A Moment in Eternity/Language of Dissatisfaction) - a needle playing the label, Desiring E.P.2 (Adverse 3) - a drill used as turntable, and Are You Anything More Than Just A Product of Your Influence? (Adverse 12) - dual parallel groove cut on 16rpm and 78rpm.

Other works veer into sound collage and beat destruction, such as The Bruitist Shaper, and Trocante Gramofony E.P.

He also experimented with extreme noise frequencies at live gigs, some of which were documented on a series of CDRs on Adverse in 1997 (all of these have now been uploaded to our YouTube channel). 

Important to mention are also his collaborations with DJ Scud with the two classic 7"s Eurostar/Piling Machine and Total Destruction on the Maschinenbau label, both re-released by Praxis on one 12" in 2018.

Ever since his 1999 release Trocante Gramofony EP (Praxis 33), there had been talk about doing a follow up and around 2010-2011 Nomex indeed worked on an album for Praxis, the material for which was finished, but not compiled at the time of his death in 2014.

We compiled it as close as possible to what we think his intentions would have been and as to be expected it's a killer noise album!

The record will be pressed in a limited and numbered edition with a hand stamped label and sleeve as well as a 30x30cm cover graphic/poster inlay and postcard in an edition of 100-150 copies. Finer details of this may yet change/vary as we're figuring out the production cost and details. The image depicts the 30x30cm print insert. Details might slightly vary. A download code for digital tracks will be included.

We're looking at an August 1st 2024 release, more details will be posted as we move forward with this and other projects.

Available for pre-order now at a reduced price of 15 euro for a limited number of orders and only until the end of May 2024. RRP will be €20 once it's out. If you order the record now, it will help us to cover manufacturing costs and to bring the release into existence at the time for the projected release date at the beginning of August.
