Evolutionary Advantage of Forgetting

Posted on Feb 2, 2015 by in ASP Productions, ASP Remixes, Fresh Meat Records |

Four years passed between the vinyl release of Audio Soul Project’s Hip Shake Heartache and Fresh Meat’s next record, a various artists EP named Evolutionary Advantage of Forgetting. The newer release was manufactured in the United States, cut by venerable mastering engineer Mark Richardson of Metropolis Mastering and Prairie Cat Mastering. EAoF was pressed at A&R Records in Texas and sold mainly through Gramaphone Records in Chicago. There might still be one or two copies of the record still left at the Fresh Meat Bandcamp shop.

Below you can read the original write up for this EP along with DJ feedback:

Evolutionary Advantage of Forgetting is a 300-press, vinyl only, various artists EP distributed through Gramaphone Records in Chicago. The tracks here are in the brutalist machine house vein and the source material for “We Come Together” (by Mazi as ASP and John Griffin as Awoke) will be familiar to devotees of roots Chicago House. The Brodanse brothers’ “Sleep Won’t Come” is remixed by Audio Soul Project and Awoke. Chicago based multi-instrumentalist Jonn Wallen contributes the dense “Aesthete” under pseudonym “by gordon gartrelle”. “We Come Together” is a tribute to the 90s house that inspired us to start making music years ago.

People reminisce about how things used to be better, but you must breath in the present. We keep with us those hallowed bones but let pain and suffering fade into the mist. We let memories fade in the depths of our neural web so as not to be paralyzed by the burden of sentiment. We forget to stay sane.
