Tresor veteran TV Victor returns with two EPs in the midst of Tresor's 30th anniversary. Being an integral part of Tresor even before it all began, Udo Heitfeld founded No Zen Orchestra in 1987 together with Dimitri Hegemann and Günther Schickert amongst others. The first releases on Interfisch, which would later become Tresor Records, saw the crew gathering around Fischbüro (a space for eclectic and dada experimentation) releasing non-comforming hypnotic psychedelic rock experiments, followed by Heitfeld’s solo debut Album Moondance on Big Sex in ‘89 as well as Trance Garden 1-3, his first release on Tresor in ’94.
TV Victor's new releases GRV Vol. 2 + 3 continue this saga three decades later. This new chapter picks up where GRV Vol.1 left off in 2010, with its release on Tobias Freund and Max Loderbauer's Non Standard Productions label. The sound harkens back to classic downbeat, trip hop and tape loop workouts of the early days. Crystal plateaus float in unison with the pulsating grooves, just like the ebb and flow of the tide, the shifting sand and the lively sea coincide. Even when the waters seem resting at times, the interlocking rhythms move far below their surface. You can't stop these waves, but you can learn how to flow.
These four tracks show TV Victor at what he does best: major effects with minor changes, micro-timed steps in the grooves, macro-steps in cognition. This is dance music for the mind - an awakening from another world.
