REQ 666 NXP/ Kjetil Hanssen - Split (7" EP/Album) (27 October 2011)

This is a 7" limited edition album (!) off 234 copies (92 black, 96 red and 46 green vinyls). Comes with an insert. Each side ends with a locked groove, intended to make this an album rather than a EP since the playing time on each side is endless. Joint released together with Ambolthue Records.

No A-/B-side on this record! No writing on label indicating wich side you are playing.

Kjetil Hanssen side to be played at 33.3RPM.
NXP side to be played at 45 revolutions.

Reviewed in Vital Weekly (#811);
There is also a new 7", with three short tracks by NXP on one side and one longer piece by Kjetil Hanssen on the other. Things have changed, after some failed 7" releases in the 80s. NXP's tracks all revolve about heavy rhythm, feeding through some effects to create industrial distortion. Since time is limited, these are all to the point. Excellent. Kjetil Hanssen is sometimes known as Torstein Wjiik, when it comes to harsh noise and is from younger generation of Norway's Noise scenery. Under his own name he creates far more interesting music, not entirely free of noise either, but certainly not HNW either. He uses samples without permition [sic] from Marhaug, Stine K and Swamps up Nostrils and with these he creates a rather lo-fi set of electronic sounds, densely layered. Perhaps a bit unfocussed. Both sides end in a lockgroove, so remixers have more fun out of this. Nice one. (FdW)

Track listing:
Kjetil Hansen side: 1 Forcing Kids Into Dark Spaces With Pictures Of Female Singers From The 17th                                    Century

NXP side: 3 Noise As The Basis Of Culture

XP 11 NXP - One Minute Later (DL) (5 March 2011)

"One Minute Later" is a free album for everyone to share (as long as no one charges anyone for this music). It is released by both Go To Gate Records (GO TO DL 20) and Requiem Productions (XP 11).

The album was partly done after listening to one off NXPs favorite albums "Commercial Album" by The Residents and partly after contributing to Hal McGees International Email Audio Art Project, so many thanx to them both. After this he was into the groove and made several one minute tracks and love the restriction in time. After a while he had to draw a line and concluded if Residents could do 40 tracks, so can NXP. Well here is the results and it is for your pleasure only.

Free download (including cover) here; Internet Archive or NXP bandcamp.

Reviewed in Vital Weekly (#811);
NXP - BEAUTY TAKES OUT THE WORST IN PEOPLE (CDR by Requiem Productions)
Tore Stemland's musical history goes back many years. He was a member of Asod Dvi and Psykisk Tortur in the 80s as well as various punk bands. Nekro XP was also in those the name for his solo project, later shortened to NXP. This new album is his 11th as NXP since 1984 and released on his own Requiem productions. In this album he wants to combine his various interests in creating music: "field recordings, avant-garde, rhythmic noise and other forms of music in that field", and that is indeed what he does here. The rhythmic noise has the upper hand here, and it makes that the album is perhaps a bit dated. Maybe the addition of Jim Jones talking helped that idea a bit. The use of spoken word returns in a few other pieces, and the whole thing sounds pretty retro: good lo' classic industrial music. Minimal rhythms, fed through a bunch of sound effects/synthesizers and such like, as said with occasional use of spoken word. Sometimes the variation is a bit poor per track, and it gets stuck in a few loops for a bit too much time. But the closing title, also by far the longest of this release, the rhythm is surprisingly absent and we have a fine piece of ambient drone music, and here the length works quite well. Maybe those roads are to be explored more and move away from the same what dated old rhythmic sound? Unless of course its this variation he wants so much.
