burnt friedman: anthology 1980-2017

Anthology 1980-2017 is a compilation spanning a period of 37 years featuring Burnt Friedman's releases and edits thereof from vinyl-only labels (Latency, Marionette, Dekmantel, amongst others), plus four hitherto unreleased tracks. This compilation surveys Friedman's music from 1980 to 2017 and covers a broad spectrum of played and programmed rhythmic styles that traverse club music from techno, electro, and dub, but, above all, it traces Friedman's own artistic development; A trajectory that owes a lot to his long-standing collaboration with Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit, who died at the age of 79 in 2017. Like Liebezeit, Friedman already explored even and uneven rhythms back in the late 1980s. This selection of 17 tracks documents this pursuit while bringing rough or discarded tracks to light, which did not fit onto any album or were intended for the Nonplace label. The compilation runs the entire gamut of his work on percussion, keyboard, samplers, and toys of all kinds, using various production methods (tape, Atari, MIDI, sampler, hard disk recording, digital audio tape). Studio work (instant-composition, programming, and recording) underwent major technological changes and revolutions in the 1980s and 1990s, but Friedman's distinctive signature style prevails throughout. Surprisingly danceable tracks, interrupted by alien atmospheric periods, defy any genre. "An essential retrospective that shows how Burnt Friedman has been reinventing rhythms for over two decades." --Resident Advisor
