Me and Valance teamed up last winter 2011, and created this massive ep. The collaboration started off with one track. but since the work flow and progress went well, we decided to make more. This ep was created off of great work flow, and beautiful atmosphere. Each track in depth has a focused chaotic structure. This takes your average IDM listener on Joy ride, while tasting both of our styles. The ep is pleasing with melodies and deep drum glitches. Both of us are very visual with our music, so you can almost see whats being heard. Tons of fun creating the tracks on this project, and coming from both of us… the sound & ideas are endless. ~ Jimmy Batista
CYUILDO APO : VALANCE DRAKES + JIMMY BATISTA.
VALANCE SAYS: I heard about about enabl.ed (Jimmy Batista) through Myng from Global Vortex Records,
I always found his stuff wicked as one day I wanted to be experimental
like that, I had the opportunity to do a remix for him for his The
Perfect Provider project for concrete plastic records in the UK. Doing
this project with him was a pleasure the sounds were bouncing back and
forth and made the ep pretty much under a week.
JIMMY SAYS: I met Valance through soundcloud and the friendship was mutual. A collab never came to focus because of the projects I was currently working on. Time passed with a few releases later and we decided to…put together one project to see how the project went … i thought it would be a great idea mixing both of our sounds together. First track was born, and Valance’s Audio design was incredible. It just worked. Why not make an EP? Thus…it began… the new crazy abstract IDM that came out of us was so beautiful, it just flowed. We wanted to set some kind of ambience mixed in with some strange sounds as well. Sometimes the beats on the EP, cant catch up with itself… but the beauty of it all…is that it makes sense.
