A lot can be said about the stubborn and confrontational ways of prolific Dutch producer Drvg Cvltvre and his New York Haunted label, but one can never accuse him of taking the easy way out. Resident Advisor dubbed him an ‘Anti Careerist’ , and it would’ve been a lot easier for all of us had he stayed the simple acid techno path of his ‘American Psychosis’ acid single of the week in The Guardian. But that’s just not an option for Tilburg, The Netherlands, resident Vincent Koreman.
Over the last years he has again given away a lot of his new music online, has not planned out any sort of release schedule and has mostly followed his heart and his gut towards working with, mostly small time, DIY labels. But besides that he is politically outspoken and has instigated several charity releases and shows, the latest of which for kids in Syria and the ACLU. Musically, his output of experimental electronics has swayed between heavy industrial techno and noise, composed music and slow, doomy and experimental house. Besides that, Koreman also plays in famed black metal band Nihill and collabs frequently with free jazz duo Dead Neanderthals as D/N/D/C and Celestial Bodies.
On this new, full lenght album ‘Nobody Cares Forever’ he blends all of the above. From the orchestral hit, rave fueled opener to the melancholic synths of closing track ‘All Of My Heroes’ and everything in between is pure experimentation and decomposing of standard house, rave and techno elements. Several of the tracks feature vocal cut-ups and samples, new to Koreman’s output, and the rhythms that are there, all have a twist, as if they are mutated versions of dance music dogma’s. Now, here, in this #TrumpAge, you can feel his resistance to authority and the readiness to confront in every inch and fiber of this record. We feel this is one of Drvg Cvltvre’s meanest, strongest, most earnest collection of songs to date and are proud and happy to share this album with the world.
