about

“In his first vinyl outing since the Grusha LP of 2011, Contra Pop Festival founder Lumpen Nobleman’s 'Errors and Remedies' employs succinct production lines that allow arrangements to travel cleanly through elevated instrumental passages of electronic and beat-based composition. The EP moves as a ritual dance from progressive introspection to joyful repartition whilst always developing the central theme of powerful hook-laden rhythms for hearts and feet”
– Adam Coney, August 2020.

On remix duties are Glasgow DIY polymath Helena Celle, London acid-techno head Coldnose, Berlin polyrhythm machine Don’t DJ, Dunkeld skweee master Joe Howe, Belgian eccentric cabaret stalwart Manu Louis, Gateshead turntable trailblazer Mariam Rezaei, Birmingham electronic magician Sad Man and The Dubfather himself, Adrian Sherwood.

"Errors and Remedies begins life as a series of so-called 'errors', where hints of house music classicism – with a brittle rhythmic directness not unlike Tevo Howard's Chicago workouts – are melded with an ’80s soundtrack sensibility. Floating above the freneticism of the dancefloor, a discreet melodic approach with cascading shimmers – a hard-edged, plasticised chamber music of sorts – fights for attention. Think John Carpenter commissioning the Durutti Column.

Already an intriguing blend of discourses, these four pieces are then 'remedied' by a number of remixes – turned inside-out and stretched across genre spaces, without losing their essential fragility and tone. Where Manu Louis adds a wonky feel, Mariam Rezaei morphs matters into timbral drone swoops. Helena Celle enhances the soundtrackery with a sense of breathy suspension, whereas Coldnose pushes things into acid overdrive.

The whole package juggles so many directions, yet retains a strong sense of itself; a discipline and coherence, not to mention a certain sweetness" – David Panos, October 2020.

The William-Morris-inspired artwork was crafted by Akashic label boss and Golden Teacher renaissance man, Oliver Pitt.

While the four original tracks and whole twelve-track album can be purchased together here, a number of the remixers are also making their own 'remedies' available to download individually from their respective Bandcamp sites.
