Artist: KINK GONG
Title: Imer Zeillos
Format: LP
Label: Discrepant
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Imer Zeillos is another unique document of Laurent Jeanneaus collection of surreal soundscapes of augmented field recordings, this time using two very different source recordings to create his own unique brand of alien music. Using contact mic recordings of various Turkish instruments - saz, cura, and tanbur (played by Remi Solliez) - Jeanneau alchemically collages them with his archival recordings of South East Asia to create a surreal space between the instruments tones and resonances with the other-worldly beauty of the field recordings." - Discrepant.

Artist: KINK GONG
Title: Tanzania
Format: LP
Label: Discrepant
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Another unique document of Laurent Jeanneau aka Kink Gongs electronic deconstructions, this time stepping away from his usual Southeast Asia area of expertise and releasing some of his first reinterpretations and field recordings made in the late 90s in Tanzania, Africa. "December 1999, Tanzania. I had an appointment with James Stephenson an American friend from the 90s in NYC, he used to skip the American winter every year to be with the Hadzas bushmen and other Tanzanians tribes in Tanzania. Whilst there, James and I lost completely track of time and did not give a shit about what day Christmas was, or New Years for that matter -- with the majority of the planet knowing they were heading into the 21st Century. At some point end of December or early January 2000(?) we asked a group of Hadzas we were hanging out with, whats the date today? None understood the question but one Hadza who had been sent to school in the early 70s answered that we must be in 1975! Tanzania in 1999/2000, this intense trip away from all the millennium bullshit celebrations. I gathered all kinds of sounds, not only music, that expresses proximity and that was the first time I decided I was going to remix those raw recordings into a decent soundscape. It was also the first time I was pleased with the result -- to go into a direction of redefining world music, away from the commercial clichés. This has been the direction Ive taken and focused on ever since with the recomposing of my Asian recordings" --Laurent Jeanneau, Berlin, 2015. Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Cover photography by James Stephenson. Limited to 500 copies." - Discrepant.

Artist: KINK GONG
Title: Xinjiang
Format: LP
Label: Discrepant
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Kink Gong aka Laurent Jeanneau is a field recording artist based in Dali, China. He spends his time recording ethnic minority music, mostly in Southeast Asia, and releasing the results on his own CDr label, Kink Gong Recordings, as well as occasionally contributing to Sublime Frequencies compilations. He also composes electronic music that includes and transforms those recordings. For Xinjiang, Jeanneau based his soundscape around the recordings he made on a 2009 trip to the frontier region of Northern China, Xinjiang. Spreading from Mongolia to Afghanistan, it is the biggest Chinese province. From various locally made recordings, including Kazakh Dongbra jams, Uyghur Dotar riffs, and various regional radio interferences, Jeanneau constructed a melting pot of ethnic-related weirdness packed with mind-blowing virtuoso recordings. Simple and beautiful, this music makes people fall into visionary reality. Mastered and cut at Dubplates & Mastering by Rashad Becker. All tracks were recorded on location in the ILI prefecture, Xinjiang province, China, by Laurent Jeanneau." - Discrepant.
