Chord Memory! The hymn for the widely used feature in 80s hardware synthesizers got some individual rewiring done:
When ten fingers ain’t enough Hyboid uses his Galactic Memory for punchy disco purposes while Robyrt Hecht reaches for a swinging Pivot Memory to sweep and swipe your electro habits. On the other hand Milium likes the exposed wires of his Mutiny Memory to revolt whereas CCO simulates his natural Echoic Memory with floating acid sparks. Completing the mechanical rewiring the duo Nachtzug added delicate software to Execute the algorithms and installed a Memory Loss button, for if you are in need of a reset.
Review by Elektrodos (an Intergalactic FM radio show) :
"YUYAY is mathematical electro music, or musical electro mathematics. All releases to date have been of excellent and ever-increasing quality, characterized by delicate tracks with cold melodic electro sounds.
The label launches its second vinyl release, after the magnificent YUY008. "Chord Rememory" is a 6 track EP, of which 4 are remixes of the YUY006 release under the same moniker. Hyboid throws the cool and calculated track through his disco-flavoured Galactic Memory machine, and label boss Robyrt Hecht reworks the track into an even colder, sublime and enticing electro track. "Execute" is a soulful release from the memory, before side B kicks in with energetic versions of "Chord Memory"; Milium with a rawer sound and CCO throwing in the acid. The beautifully crafted closing track "Memory Loss" is our favorite, perfectly capturing the spirit of the EP and bringing it to a full close." - Laris Maker (ELEKTRODOS)
