Evolutionary Advantage of Forgetting is a vinyl-only various artists EP distributed originally through Gramaphone Records in Chicago.
The tracks here are in the brutalist machine house vein and the source material for “We Come Together” (by Mazi as ASP and John Griffin as Awoke) will be familiar to devotees of roots Chicago House. The Brodanse brothers’ “Sleep Won’t Come” is remixed by Audio Soul Project and Awoke. Chicago based multi-instrumentalist Jonn Wallen contributes the dense “Aesthete” under pseudonym “by gordon gartrelle”. “We Come Together” is a tribute to the 90s house that inspired us to start making music years ago.
People reminisce about how things used to be better, but you must breath in the present. We keep with us those hallowed bones but let pain and suffering fade into the mist. We let memories fade in the depths of our neural web so as not to be paralyzed by the burden of sentiment. We forget to stay sane.
Fresh Meat Records is an artist-run label from Chicago. The label is owned and operated by Mazi Namvar, who has created much of the music on the label. Generally, the label is home to producers influenced by the “other side” of Chicago House.
