Techno producer Nathan Fake has announced his first twelve-inch for Ninja Tune, ‘Degreelessness’, a collaboration with noise producer Dominick Fernow, aka Prurient. The track sees their very different sounds brought together perfectly, resulting in a powerful eight minutes of electronic music.

“Although our music probably seems pretty different from each others on the surface, I felt there was a strong link from a rhythmic and melodic standpoint”, says Fake. “And I admired his vocal performances in his Prurient material which were both charismatic and masculine but not tiresomely so”.

He continues: “‘Degreelessness’ started off as a sixteen bar loop jam which I’d adapted from an existing melodic composition, building rhythms around it with his voice in mind. Dominick delivered a spoken word vocal piece inspired by the track, the lyrical content of which is heavily obscured in the final piece, purposefully so, the whole piece becoming lost in its own echoes, with the human voice emanating from the gaps in between”.

‘Degreelessness’ is released on 1 Dec, backed with new solo Nathan Fake track ‘Now We Know’. Listen to Fake and Prurient’s collaboration here:
