    Awe Owe

    Drawing from a rich variety of influences from the cradle to his crate digging years, Roberto C. Lange as Helado Negro cites influences such as Funkadelic, DJ Premiere, South American 60's pop, Arthur Russell, Ecuadorean ballad singer Julio Jaramillo, and the production style of Adrian Sherwoods in the early ON-U Sound releases. But when asked about his contemporaries, Lange references all the players on the album, adding the names of visual artists David Ellis and Christian Marclay, two artists who use elements of DJ culture in their work. This is apropos when listening to the record.

    Library Catalog Music Series: Music For Memory

    Roberto Carlos Lange (Helado Negro, Savath & Savalas) offers up his contribution to the Library Catalog Music Series. Music for Memory is like one giant crossfade going from one idea to the next in long rhythmic patterns. Its broken tape delays and found reel to reel tapes comprise the beats and the long drone music made from orchestrations that became re-assembled from short ideas to long ones.

    Invisible Life (Awaiting Repress)

    Press play on Invisible Life and you lose your season. Roberto Lange - Helado Negro - is talking to you in Spanish. He's talking to you, perhaps with more volume, in the language he's been teaching us all over the past three years through the lessons of the seductive full-length Canta Lechuza, the sub-narrative exploration EP Island Universe Story One, and the all-in collaboration, Ombre, with Juliana Barwick. This immersive curriculum, paired with our own capacity for feeling, will make Invisible Life visible. At least as much Roberto Lange wants us to see of himself. Translate the name of that first song for the first clue: It illuminates you.

    Believe You Me

    Double Youth

    "A headphone-friendly, Latin-flavored, hypnotic concoction of deep grooves, tropical textures and warped blips and bleeps compressed into fractured layers." - Magnet


    Helado Negro recorded Double Youth, his fourth LP, in his home studio with a computer, his voice, and telepathic input from a poster he found buried in a closet in his childhood home. Seeing the poster evoked a sudden rush of memories, but also a sense of isolation and separation. Who was this person in the photo? And what else had Helado Negro
    forgotten? The poster's impact was so significant, it framed a new recording process for Helado Negro and now serves as cover art, title, and the conceptual framework for the lyrics and song structures.


    Helado Negro certainly owes something to his contemporaries, Bear in Heaven, Young Magic, Empress Of, Prefuse 73, and School of Seven Bells, but Double Youth is more a spiritual long-lost cousin to the great masters of funk, like Parliament, Prince, and George Duke, whose finely tuned beats married the ear with the body in new ways. Bass drum machines in Double Youth pulse like a robot dance movement. Bass undercurrents fuzz. Sine waves tickle the brain stem. The melodies weave through the air like a fish. And Helado Negro's voice, which grows more and more confident with each record, is a cool, clean dance partner to the beat and melody.

    Rivington Nao Rio

    Rivington Não Rio revels in the kind of compassionate
    complexity that marks Prefuse 73's greatest works, with a
    profound new element added to the mix: Patience.
    Guillermo S. Herren's ability to marry the manic to the
    melodic has always been uncanny, but here it feels
    downright magical as the songs inhale with his trademark
    sense of urgency then exhale in longer, more revealing
    breaths. The prismatic textures that have long been a staple
    of Prefuse 73 are bound to beats and melodies with the
    spirit of hip-hop and the subtlety of modern minimalism. The
    album's guests treat the material with a hushed respect: Roc
    Nation songwriter and Jessie Ware collaborator Sam Dew
    turns Infrared into a sublimely soulful, dimly-lit portrait of
    inverted R&B; Milo & Busdriver's vicious, rapid-fire verses
    contrast a pastoral downbeat to brilliant effect; and
    elsewhere, Pinback's Rob Crow and Latin electronic-folk
    crooner Helado Negro navigate splintered tropics with
    passive grace.


    As a stand-alone album, Rivington Não Rio ranks
    extraordinarily high in the Prefuse 73 canon. As a
    centerpiece to an epic triptych that includes the Forsyth
    Gardens and Every Color of Darkness EPs, it's a new peak
    from a pioneer who appears to only just now be hitting his
    prime. For an artist who has played an undeniably integral
    role in the careers of so many influential artists, it's not just
    refreshing to hear him return to top form...it's revelatory.

    The Greatest Gift


    Translucent Yellow Colored Vinyl


    The Greatest Gift is a mixtape of outtakes,
    remixes and demos from Sufjan's 2015 album Carrie &
    Lowell.


    This collection serves as a companion piece to the Carrie &
    Lowell Live album released earlier this year (and as an
    expansion to the original album). In the same way the live
    show featured re-interpretations of the songs from Carrie &
    Lowell, the mixtape unveils new remixes by several
    longstanding collaborators including Roberto C. Lange (aka
    Helado Negro), Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), and James
    McAlister (aka 900X). The album also features Sufjan's own
    remix of "Drawn to the Blood."


    The mixtape includes a few alternate and/or demo versions of
    songs from the original album. The digital release also
    contains an iPhone demo of the song "Carrie & Lowell."
    Greatest Gift features four previously unreleased new songs,
    "official" outtakes from Carrie & Lowell (they were recorded at
    the same time as the album). These include "Wallowa Lake
    Monster," "The Hidden River of My Life," "City of Roses," and
    "The Greatest Gift." This new material, in its investigation of
    love, life, death, God, and the beautiful state of Oregon,
    serves as a contemplative companion to the original album.
    We hope you enjoy.

    Fits & Starts


    LP Packaging Features Custom Adhesive Wrap & 16 Page Booklet


    For the tenth volume of FRKWYS, composer,
    percussionist and sound designer david Van
    tieghem alongside ten younger artists from
    across the avant spectrum become a bulletin
    of Fits & Starts.


    In July of 2012, RVNG Intl. was invited to participate in Bulletin Boards, a group
    exhibition at Venus over manhattan curated by White Columns' gallery director matthew
    Higgs. An extension of an ongoing project which resides in the entrance of White
    Columns' downtown New York gallery, Bulletin Boards featured 24 artists/entities, each
    given a new bulletin board as an inspirational starting point.


    In 1981, David Van Tieghem produced the experimental music video Ear To The
    Ground. The film features Van Tieghem "playing" downtown New York City, a world
    in which Van Tieghem established his rhythmic roots as a member of the love of life
    orchestra, a frequent collaborator with laurie anderson, and a player on steve reich's Music
    For 18 Musicians, robert ashley's Perfect Lives (Private Parts) / Perfect Lives and david Byrne
    and Brian eno's My Life in the Bush With Ghosts among other seminal recordings including
    his own.


    In Ear To The Ground, all city surfaces become communications-or bulletins-under
    Van Tieghem's twiddling, thwacking and thumping thumbs. Partially inspired by this and
    by our blank but physically limited canvas space, Van Tieghem agreed to take part in
    a sequence of improvised performances and creative editing to become part of our
    FRKWYS series.


    We also invited ten younger musicians to post objects to the board. A cross section of
    present day New York artists were represented by way of sam Hillmer as diamond terrifier
    (with the aid of max alper), Future shuttle, Georgia, roberto Carlos lange as Helado negro,
    darren Ho, eli keszler, Hiro kone and megafortress, alongside the regionally sympathetic
    Blanche Blanche Blanche and maxmillion dunbar.


    In place of business cards, broadsheets, and flyers, the objects/communications
    contributed were broken toasters, firecrackers, 2x4s, thunder drums and customized
    electronics, each intended as a percussive device. On opening night, the bulletin board,
    disguised as assemblage, welcomed David's dialogue.


    In the spirit of Ear To The Ground's infinite conversation, Van Tieghem returned to
    Venus Over Manhattan to "play" the bulletin board without an audience. The process
    of Van Tieghem discovering and responding to the objects/bulletins again was multitracked in high definition.


    These recordings were then presented to the ten contributing musicians for further
    translation, "remix" and interpretation. For the final sequence, the unique pieces were
    delivered to Van Tieghem to edit and embellish as the sound collages presented as Fits
    & Starts across two album length sides of our tenth volume in the FRKWYS series.

    Sacrifices (Awaiting Repress)

    Guillermo Scott Herren is a producer who has been based in Atlanta, Barcelona and New York City. Herren releases music under the aliases
    Prefuse 73, Delarosa & Asora, Ahmad Szabo, and Piano Overlord, and is also part of the groups Savath y Savalas, Sons of the Morning, Fudge,
    Risil, and Diamond Watch Wrists.


    Herren began his career working in commercial studios in Atlanta. Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives, his first album as Prefuse 73 -- after
    lower-key releases as/with Delarosa, Delarosa & Asora, and Savath & Savalas -- not only buried but cut up and spliced voices as well as allowing
    some more straightforward vocals from several MCs. The 2003 follow-up, One Word Extinguisher, carried on in a similar vein.


    Surrounded by Silence, the successor to One Word Extinguisher, was released in 2005, featuring collaborations with rappers Ghostface and
    Aesop Rock, plus Blonde Redhead and EL-P. Three months later, an EP of recordings made with the band the Books appeared, titled Reads the
    Books. The next Prefuse record, 2006's Security Screenings, was relatively light on collaborations; it featured only two guests, Four Tet's Kieran
    Hebden and TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe. Preparations, featuring Battles drummer John Stanier on one track, followed in 2007, and
    Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian appeared in 2009. Herren focused on collaborative projects in 2010, flexing his production muscles via
    dates, remixes, or cameos with everyone from Zach Hill (Diamond Watch Wrists) to Oneohtrix Point Never to TV on the Radio. His 2011
    production The Only She Chapters continued the familial feeling, with a wealth of features for female vocalists.


    A few years later, newly inspired, Herren returned to the Prefuse 73 moniker with a flurry of releases on Temporary Residence Limited -- an outlet
    endorsed by friends Nigel Godrich (Ultraísta) and Hebden -- beginning with the 25th entry into the label's Travels in Constants EP series. The
    album Rivington Não Rio, featuring guest appearances by Busdriver, Rob Crow, and Helado Negro, was flanked by the EPs Forsyth Gardens and
    Every Color of Darkness. During that summer and fall, Herren recorded several sessions with MC Michael Christmas under the name Fudge. The
    duo's playful debut full-length, Lady Parts, arrived on Lex Records in September of 2016.

    Canta Lechuza

    Canta Lechuza is an intimate, personal beast, a solo affair built lovingly from live instruments, percussion, and field recordings, all processed through electronics, computers, and synthesizers. It is an album with very defined songs, its song-structure has been labored over; choruses count bigtime, confident breakdowns and digi-pop bridges are all part and parcel of the greater good. Canta Lechuza is dance music turned inside outpercussion plipping and plapping, basslines smooth and dry as a tube of blue neon.
