De/Re-Constructions

A 11 track bleep album (32m 56s) — released February 23rd 2015 on Astro:Dynamics

*Reverse-board printed sleeves with download card included*

Astro:Dynamics start off 2015 with a collaborative LP from Berlin-based Ben Thomas aka BNJMN (Delsin, Rush Hour, Technicolour) and Portland, Oregon-dwelling Kevin Palmer aka Best Available Technology (Opal Tapes, Further Records, Left_Blank).

This collaborative album is a document of a musical dialogue between the two artists that has been ongoing for a number of years. The passing back and forth of ideas and snippets in the pursuit of feedback gradually grew into a body of work that eloquently moulds each artist's sonic palettes and approaches - harking back to Thomas' previous cross-atlantic collaborative work with Brainfeeder's Teebs under his earlier Jackhigh handle.

Both artists have appeared previously on the label, with Ben Thomas' first appearance under the BNJMN alias showing up on the label's debut release back in 2010 (later releasing multiple albums and EPs under the name for revered house/techno labels Rush Hour & Delsin) and a 7" from the Singing Statues sub-project in 2012. A cassette of Palmer's ruff and ready jam sessions as BAT (culled from tape recordings made between 1992 and 1999) 'Excavated Tapes' also surfaced on the label in 2013 and saw reviews and features on Dazed & Confused, FACT Magazine, Resident Advisor, Tiny MIx Tapes and more.
