Eric Copeland Trogg Modal Bundle
Both Eric Copeland albums, one affordable price. Available in a vinyl bundle, or a CD bundle.
On Vol. 1:
In the first part of a two-volume release, Eric Copeland (Black Dice) delivers Trogg Modal Vol. 1. It has been one year since releasing Goofballs and Eric has doubled down on his unique approach to crafting dance music, pushing a sort of 'Freakbeat 4/4' agenda even further than before. Chunky percussive layers, hard steady kicks, and maniacally catchy vocal hooks create a playful vibe that is best described as a tropical-industrial hybrid. The final product comes together via seven succinct, self-described “rippers,” created both deliberately and accidentally, and always with a sense of humor that bubbles over and out through the speakers.
On Vol. 2:
Eric Copeland (Black Dice) delivers Trogg Modal Vol. 2, the counterpart to last October’s Vol. 1. His 'Freakbeat 4/4' agenda gets further refined here – Vol. 2 is more laid-back than the first, but still highly danceable. Self-described as “late Night Flight proto tekno,” the tracks pulse with thick layers of percussion, melodic fever dreams, and riffs wrung through a taffy puller. Where Vol. 1 was composed of “rippers,” Vol. 2 travels at its own pace, continuing to showcase Eric’s ability to recontextualize 4/4 tracks as psychedelic contortions. Both volumes combined showcase the musical versatility of one of the key experimental artists of the past twenty years.
