Wanda Group / EVOL

Wanda Group treads that obscure line between rhythmic electronica and sound art with more obliquity and devilish charm than most. A 4/4 heartbeat intermittently fights through the beautiful murk of Louis Johnstone's cuts and pastes but inevitably surrenders to the beguiling displacement of his assembled found/stolen sounds and passages that flit between gratuitous bass throbs and just a chance to revel in the sound of a stylus skating over vinyl.

EVOL Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Stephen Sharp make computer music for hooligans and deconstructed rave objects. Their music has been published on record labels like Entr'acte, Editions Mego, Presto!?, fals.ch or their very own ALKU, and showcased at festivals, clubs, galleries and museums throughout the world. EVOL recordings, installations and performances have a unique approach to sound matter, full of upward spirals, trance inducing patterns and challenging temporal structures.
Recent works include the LP "Proper Headshrinker", published by Editions Mego, "Something Inflatable", released on ALKU, a classic acid mix for iDEAL, and cassettes for Last Foundation and Sludge Tapes. They are currently working on stuff for Diagonal, Presto!?, BUS, Romvos, and Khalija.
