Bear Bones, Lay Low links up with Pizza Noise Mafia's Carrageenan and comes with a monster of an EP. BIG TIP!
Matthieu Levet (Carrageenan / Pizza Noise Mafia) and Ernesto GonzÃ¡lez (Bear Bones, Lay Low / Tav Exotic / Maitres Fous ...) are two musicians based in Brussels who have cut their teeth in the city’s freeform underground for well over a decade. Having spent time at numerous shows and parties together, they solidified a friendship after a two week tour around Europe with fellow electronic explorer , Accou, in April 2017.
It was shortly after this moment that the label Random Numbers approached the two with the initial intention of releasing a split cassette with music from their respective solo projects. Several exchanges later, the plan quickly changed into realizing a full-fledged collaboration between both musicians who, while having deep respect and interest for each other’s music since they first met, had never found the opportunity to create something together.
The result is the CARCASS IDENTITY EP: a combination of Levet’s raw and dub-infused electronics with GonzÃ¡lez’s kosmische psychedelic touch. This is music meant for strange parties: the kind where dancing and laying down are equally accepted and ncouraged, where there might be more silence than talking between participants, where small gestures and events reveal their transcendental meaningâ€¦
