Tekres releases “Asleep / Awake” by Kagami Smile / Subaeris
Tekres is British label owned and operated by Halo Acid (previously featured on TKX Vault, among others). It primarily focuses on ghost tech music, a form of techno-inspired cyberpunk music; think of it as the IDM derivation of dreampunk, but with more inclinations toward noise and “experimental” flavors. Asleep / Awake is a split album featuring Kagami Smile and Subaeris, the latter of whom is a project by Dream Catalogue co-founder HKE. The Kagami Smile side is noisy and harsh, akin to early releases on Opal Tapes; Subaeris’s has elements of UK garage and deep house. Asleep / Awake is an apt introduction to the world of “ghost tech”; check out the Pyramids label after you’re done with this and the rest of tekres’ extant catalogue. It’s available for £4 GBP as a digital download and for £9 GBP on cassette format in an edition of fifty.
