Murder Tape
12" | 2018 | US | Original (Great Circles)
10,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
2018 played host to a bumper crop of sounds from some of Philly’s grittiest, including Great Circles mainstays M//R and Chaperone. To close out the year that was, we are pleased to present Heckadecimal’s ‘Murder Tape.’A Minneapolis-based producer and acid auteur, Heckadecimal has been a fixture within the vibrant Midwestern electronic music community for nearly 20 years. Founder of the legendary ‘Anti-human’ events and co-curator of the ever-prolific Always Human Tapes imprint – alongside Ryan Wurst and Peter Lansky – Heckadecimal’s reputation is one of unrelenting creativity and tireless advocacy for sonic experimentation. His work has found its way to light via a slew of pseudonyms and stage monikers, including The Worm, noface and Wonder Sirens.In short – Heckadecimal lives and breathes the sonic matter that he leaves pouring out of studio monitors, busted bar systems and finely tuned rave stacks, wherever his travels take him.Live performance lies at the core of Heckadecimal’s practice. When he stormed through Inciting HQ in Philly earlier this summer, he took command over an arsenal of hardware that reminded us of how Octave One or Shawn Rudiman might show up. These were machines that he had lived with; touched with custom modifications, hand-drawn stickers and pockmarks incurred in battle, one got the sense that the gear was a personal extension of the artist.Perhaps it’s a bit maudlin, but we feel a certain kinship with this project. Indeed, these tracks at times feel very much of a piece with the gnarled tonalities in which our stable typically traffics; all low-slung riddims that reach at equal lengths towards mutated IDM aesthetics and post-Packard Plant techno extrusions. These are future perfect grooves that glide along under the vast Midwestern sky, providing a fertile communication conduit with the City of Brotherly Love.Give thanks for acid. Great Circles will see you in the New Year..
Chaperone - Snapback Balaclava
Chaperone
Snapback Balaclava
12" | 2018 | US | Original (Great Circles)
12,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
For over 4 years, David Coccagna aka Chaperone has been a constant part of Great Circles, as musician, art director, and muse. With Snapback Balaclava he once again fully embodies all of those roles, delivering three inspiring tracks, selecting his remixers with specific attention to their musical histories, and designing his cover art.Across the A-side, Chaperone scrapes away at the grit – personal grit, the grit of anxiety, and Philly grit. These are meditations on loops, and loops on meditations. Each one appears on the surface to be a brief quote, but time dilation takes over, and minutes later e discover that Chaperone has welcomed us into and back out of his own healing moment.Like Chaperone's P O N D release [GRCR-009], the B-side of Snapback Balaclava is a Great Circles extended family affair with a trio of diverse remixes that expose and exploit fragments of the chaos Chaperone so carefully contained.Hitoshi Kojima [Thrive] reinterprets Pulse Feels Swells Beating with relentless syncopated rhythms and synth lines that hang like massive string drones. M//R lays down a signature percussion ensemble palette, zeroes in on otherwise peripheral elements of Grit Neglect, and then deftly navigates sea change with both. Matt Korvette and Sean McGuinness of Philly punk band Pissed Jeans open up the pit and finish the story, taking Femur Baseball Bat to its literal and brutal potential with monstrous vocals and kicks.
THRIVE - Nested Structure
THRIVE
Nested Structure
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Great Circles)

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Nested Structure is the first Great Circles release from artists outside of Philadelphia. THRIVE are Tetsuya Yoshida and Hitoshi Kojima. They both grew up in the North Kanto area of Japan. They first met at the club run by Tetsuya Yoshida called SOUND A BASE NEST, which is known as having the best sound system in the North Kanto area. In 2007, the duo started their DJ / Producing unit THRIVE. Previous releases have included a split 12” with Keia Yano for Japanese label Struct, and recent solo releases by Hitoshi for Always Human Tapes and for his own label Ambivalent Deviation.This record almost didn’t happen! --- Tetsuya and Hitoshi were picking up Great Circles records in Japan and, having periodically communicated with each other about music, they sent us the Struct 12” to check out. While cleaning out the back of the car a few months later, the presumably empty record mailer was about to land inthe recycle bin when we fortunately discovered a demo CD of unreleased THRIVE material inside. We drove around listening to it and week later we agreed to release a 12”. The music on the Nested Structure 12” is dark, foreboding, even outwardly threatening. It’s hypnotic, textural and rhythmically complex.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
After a not‐so‐unusual quiet period, we’re back with our first proper full‐length LP. Plasmas by Prefix Moniker is an experimental electronic release that sets the stage for future Great Circles releases oriented more toward home listening than the dancefloor.Prefix Moniker is comprised of Great Circles mainstay Jason Carr (_moonraker) and Johnny DeBlase (bassist in Zevious, Sabbath Assembly & Desertion Trio). The duo has a musical relationship that dates back almost 20 years.The remote composition of Plasmas began in 2013 with Carr residing in Berkeley, CA at the time, and DeBlase in Queens, NY. Each piece consists of arrangements of Csound instruments (DeBlase) with layered synthesizer (Carr). The curious product of this collaboration suggested to Carr and DeBlase the fourth state of matter, plasma. All of the track titles were then contributed by Jason’s physicist brother, Dr. Jerry Carr.Pre‐release response to Plasmas from musicians and label friends has been overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic, including Karen Gwyer’s inclusion of two tracks (Inductively Coupled and Helicons) on her recent FACT mix (FACT mix 610).
