The UK label's first dedicated foray into vinyl will come from the Italian producer in August.
The release not only marks the Italian-raised, Berlin-based artist's first appearance on Opal Tapes, but also the former Label Of The Month's first proper venture into the world of wax. Two of the imprint's cassette releases were previously pressed into vinyl by Boomkat Editions, and two other tapes were made into vinyl releases by Opal itself, but Shapednoise's is the first made exclusively for the medium.
Until Human Voices Wake Us is not quite the move into dance floor territory that a 12-inch release would seem to suggest, however. The six tracks on the record are coated in the same abrasive noise tendencies that define the producer's past work, both as Shapednoise and as one half of Violetshaped. As Juno Plus note, you can listen to "Information On The Individual Sensoriality" over at the Opal Tapes SoundCloud page. The release comes just after the release of Opal's sixth batch of tapes, which includes long-players from Rejections and Ñaka Ñaka.
