Silent Servant’s prolific output as a producer and artist has laid the groundwork for much of the most ambitious and forward thinking electronic music of today. As a member of the now defunct Sandwell District, he helped force the hand of change with uncompromising ability. He continues to do so still with even greater strength and success.
Following the 2011 demise of Sandwell District, Silent Servant co-founded the Jealous God label. In it’s short existence, they have already cut-up and reinterpreted many conventions, forging a unique identity in the process. With it’s highly conceptual aesthetic and relentless dedication to experiment, Jealous God is a flag-bearer for the contemporary electronic avant-garde and a loyal ally to all mutant experimentalists.
While insincerity remains the safety of many, Silent Servant’s own productions are brutally honest and resolute, rendering irrelevant those mongering for light. Deeply pensive and forward thinking, his sound is marked by a distinct blend of the disparate and divergent. An appreciation of warehouse techno, industrial noise and post-punk are evident, yet challenged and reworked to form a uniquely modern style – a vitality so controlled and concentrated that it captivates immediately.
His live sets are another matter of inventiveness. The superfluous eliminated, Silent Servant has, for years, been rewiring the minds and moving the bodies of those seeking the most meaningful and potent energies that electronic music has to offer.
Tony Scott has been producing electronic music since the early nineties under various pseudonyms. He established the Edit Select project, as well as its eponymous label, in 2007, focusing on atmospheric yet stripped-down, back-to-basics tracks for club use. Several 12”s appeared, including releases on labels like Ostgut Ton and Figure, as well as remixes for the likes of Speedy J, Chris Liebing, and VCMG.
Edit Select’s debut full-length, “Phlox”, appeared on the German label Prologue in 2014. During the same year, the artist released an edit of Teste’s classic 1992 track “The Wipe”. Collaborations with Dino Sabatini and Mike Parker followed, as well as singles on CLR, Dreiklang, and Semantica.
In 2016, Edit Select and Antonio Ruscito released the deep, spacy collaborative LP “Visitors - Projections”. The following year, Edit Select’s “The Bridge” EP was released by Soma, which had previously been home to the majority of Scott’s earlier work under the name Percy X, including three full-lengths and nearly two dozen singles.
Shortly following 2018’s “Horizon” EP, the label released the full-length Cyclical Undulations, easily the most expansive, accomplished Edit Select work to date.
