Was the acronym WTF! first emitted in anticipation of trying to describe Berlin label Kashual Plastik? Label owner Frans Ambient himself morphs, swapping aliases, as his releases shape-shift, the imprint single mindedly crafting it’s own sound world. With early releases by NY duo Georgia; a mixtape by DJ Richard; the multi-discipline compilation EP "A Weird State Of Experimental Experience” - housed in a grass matting cover, embellished with a screen printed itinerant monk; something akin a postal sack (screen printed again) containing early tape works of Australian electronic pioneer Any Rantzen; and the sharp, wire-bound hand-made EP by magical Japanese electronic / art duo group A. Mind your fingers, filling is hot! Kashual Plastik 007 is more than just a double agent, it's a costume changing fifth columnist, destroying and reassessing how we could or should release music in this spoon-fed era. Established scholars Georgia, alongside freshers NAR, Paul Arambula and KC, mix drinks with F_ingers (a combo of Carla dal Forno, Tarquin Manek & Samuel Karmel (CS + Creme); A.K. Klosowski, the 80´s experimental tape artist from Hamburg, rubs shoulder pads with Brannten Schnüre fresh from their blinding album via Low Company; Nadine Byrne from Swedish noisesters Ectoplasm Girls; Andre Uhl, musician and futurologist - there’s plenty of seats on top. The busload of creators on this anthology weave a psychedelic, dream-like state, with drones, opiated melodies and stellar visions. A pox on your coffee-table music, this wooden beast is both table and feast. Says Ambient: "The idea behind the compilation was, to select artists and music they sounds pretty organic in a way to me and tried to give them a most possible organic packaging." The records come in a wood veneer cover, hand screen printed on the front and back - does this signal the end of the "dinged" corner?
