about

Occur returns with an encore to their first full-length, SYRUP - the two track SPASSIC EP. Containing two remixes of an unused outtake from the SYRUP session, reconfigured into exciting new shapes and sounds via extensive software automation and FX processing, SPASSIC represents the first of (likely many) junction points for the band. Being Occur's first software-centric production, it allows Brian and John-Paul to lean into their influences from modern Autechre, Demdike Stare and all manner of classic records placed in the "IDM" section of record stores around the world. Dense and blinding, like a tangle of forestial overgrowth, SPASSIC is a propulsive and cerebral affair, swinging wildly around a firm axis of a grooving KPR-77 drum machine, giving way to bursts of aural debris and high-velocity slices in the rhythmic pulse.

A video has been produced for "Spassic 2", generated in realtime from the soundwaves themselves, which become transmuted into complex configurations of cuboid shapes and angular lines. NOTE: Due to the heavy use of flashing light and extremely fast visual cuts, persons suffering from epilepsy should refrain from watching this video. To accomodate this, we have included a visual disclaimer at the start of the video itself as well. We apologize for any inconvenience. The viewer assumes all responsibility for their personal well-being. youtu.be/MuILxgiOkkY

Following this EP will be a related set of two concurrent releases, both of which utilize software processing in much different ways from SPASSIC to recontextualize material from an earlier Occur session that was unfortunately compromised during the recording process. FLOOR and LATT will continue to reshape and expand the notion of what Occur sounds like, and what it might continue to become.

Additionally, an ambient reduction of Spassic has been issued at our beatless sister label Psoma Psi Phi, under the OCR header. PASS is a nearly opposite experience from SPASSIC, instead focusing on a deep and Impressionistic depiction of losing yourself inside the forest, while the ruins of cities fall behind you...
