On the 24th June 2013, Taragana Pyjarama will release ‘Nothing Hype’ – a brand new mini-album to follow up his 2012 debut LP ‘Tipped Bowls’.
Describing the feeling of this next step as “very different to when I did the LP last year”, Taragana Pyjarama (aka Nick Eriksen) is clearly not someone who’s content with standing still.
Having released his first tracks in 2010 (under his previous ‘Eim Ick’ moniker), Copenhagen-based Eriksen has been steadily gaining impressive momentum – and adulation – as both a producer and remixer ever since. Having already remixed singles for the likes of Delorean, Polock and Delphic, he was invited to join John Talabot’s much-admired Hivern Discs stable and had his first breakthrough EP under his current alias in 2011 for Fluo Kid’s excellent Fools House imprint. That was then quickly followed with an approach from Cologne-based music institution Kompakt to release his full debut artist album, which came out to much critical acclaim almost exactly a year ago:
“The ‘Tipped Bowls’ album was very experimental to me. I had the opportunity to try things out and I saw it more as a challenge where I didn’t want to think too much about the process. It was a learning process for me. It was also the start for my appreciation with creating sounds for pictures and films, which led me to understand my own music better and what I wanted make.”
It’s perhaps both natural and understandable that your debut album is a learning curve, but to be able to experiment and discover on your first LP with such panache has arguably set him apart as one of the producers to watch this year. This collection of new music – Nothing Hype – marks the first of his output for 2013:
“This record first started in a summerhouse that a friend of mine was visiting with some other friends. I joined in. Most of his friends are making music too, so we started recording things and it eventually ended up with a new idea for a record. I started collecting pictures and clips and started working with these images in the back of my mind. Every time I felt like I lost the spark of a track, which I find can happen all the time, I’d just look at the pictures and I was back on track. It’s something I’ve been doing with all the tracks on this release. The overall theme has been grainy and distorted pictures of caves, particularly mysterious crystal caves. It’s magic in a way.”
Mysterious and Magical – two words that couldn’t be more apt to describe the sound of Taragana Pyjarama.
