PH17, the Leipzig-based label by Solaris and Stanley Schmidt returns back to business with an EP by Leipzig’s very own DJ YumYum. Mostly known for his releases on Defrostatica and his activism in the local Rave-scene, “Decisions” marks his first full-length release setting a high standard defining his own sound somewhere between „Artefaxian“-ultra-HD glitches and the highly energetic rave sound known by artists like Schacke et al. The release appears physically as a rarely limited M-Disc, an online-piece and graphic design by Anja Kaiser.
The name of the EP describes the creative process leading to this music: Drawing from a sufficient sound palette and technique, all left to be done is taking aesthetic decisions.
In these times of desillusion – besides the quest for overcoming capitalism – sound can achieve a certain autonomy, where something like a meaning can be preserved, at least partly being able to escape the determination of the destructive social forces determining us. In Electronic music there can be the anticipation of the use of the forces of production, modern technology, for the human benefit, not its self-destruction. This piece of music would like to be a contribution to this.
