Dirk Ivens has no lack of inspiration. It is hard to keep track on the number of projects in which the Flemish electro pioneer is involved, and now S/HE is born. It is still unclear whether the cooperation between Nora Below and Dirk Ivens will be limited for this EP only. Anyway, the two musicians complement each other.

Dirk needs no introduction, perhaps Nora Below is less well known, an artist who released material on the Berlin based label Bpitch Control and who is also known for her artistic work.

Nora does the vocals and programming while Dirk is involved in taking care of the minimal electro sounds and backing vocals. Seven songs are on this EP, including the cover Who Do You Love, which earlier appeared on the compilation Deep. Sometimes it’s poppy (You Came Out Of Nowhere), sometimes a tad aggressive (Cracker which tends to Atari Teenage Riot) and in Golden Track Hollow we discover some melancholy in the electronic sounds. Yes, Dirk does it again...

Geen gebrek aan inspiratie voor Dirk Ivens. Het aantal projecten waarbij de Vlaamse elektropionier is betrokken valt nauwelijks bij te houden, en daar hoort vanaf nu ook S/HE bij. Het is nog eventjes afwachten of de samenwerking tussen Nora Below en Dirk Ivens alleen maar tot deze ene ep beperkt zal blijven, in ieder geval vullen de twee muzikanten elkaar goed aan.

Dirk voorstellen hoeft niet meer, Nora Below is misschien iets minder bekend. Deze artieste bracht solowerk uit op het Berlijnse label Bpitch Control en is ook bekend voor haar ander artistiek werk.

Nora neemt de zang voor haar rekening, terwijl Dirk voor de minimimal elektronische klanken zorgt. Zeven songs vind je op deze ep met daarop de cover Who Do You Love die eerder op de verzamelaar Deep verscheen. Soms is het poppy (You Came Out Of Nowhere), soms wat agressief (Cracker neigt wat naar Atari Teenage Riot) en in Golden Track Hollow horen we zelfs wat weemoed in de elektronische klanken. Ja hoor, Dirk doet het weer…

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
