CUT#26 • X-NAVI:ET – Vox Paradox C30

New solo tape by polish ambient/post-industrial hero Rafał Iwański, also best known for his work with Hati (which he founded almost 15 years ago), Innercity Ensemble, Kapital and Alameda 5. On “Vox Paradox”, Iwański explores the musical language translating it into his own electroacoustic microcosmos. With the addition of guest musicians (Wojtek Jachna/trumpet, Ewa Bińczyk/voice, Radek Dziubek/micro programming, Marcin Zyglarewicz/bass guitar) the album gains complexity and yet remains incredibly coherent. The tape comes with a heavy stock j-card with a photo on the front cover, insert and a D/L card.
