‘Degenerate’ is a new album by Age Reform. Turkish artist and designer uses a plethora of found and recorded sound to create shape-shifting compositions where noise, drone and post-club sounds are filtered through industrial textures. Degenerate’s brooding sound design and disregard for textural uniformity —96 KBPS samples from Youtube vids merge with sharp blasts of digital noise on short but intense ‘Spit’— is informed by the trans-international chaos of the political zeitgeist. 

Often making sharp turns within a single song, ‘Degenerate’ is ostensibly aggressive and fragmented. At the same time, it reconfigures the residue left by contemporary paranoias and obsessions.

A limited edition vinyl is coming soon from Istanbul label Tektosag.
