• c.o.w. 牛 Shanghai Mone¥ / C.O.W. EP (LP, £13.95) due 01-12-2017

    label: Compost

    C.O.W. 牛 are a German electronic act & digital art project. Wanting to breakout of the stagnating German pop-culture, C.O.W. 牛 was founded in December 2015. Not only should their music – but also their appearance and form – reflect a new zeitgeist. The identities of their members (experienced producers and musicians from Munich, Berlin and Beijing) dissolve into the artistic persona C.O.W. 牛 They produce and play mostly instrumental electronic music, which spans from obscure jazz interludes to electrified club beats. Their music is accompanied by a strong visual concept. Performing behind 8bit-pixel-masks and utilising their self-made visuals they provide for a rich live-experience and unfold the strong persona of C.O.W. 牛 Bold, cheeky and extravagant, these artists created their own genre. It is not easy to label C.O.W. 牛but if you must you can place them between Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke. However, we recommend a special place for exceptional art and sick music! With $hanghai Mone¥ the collective delivers the long awaited sequel of their first C.O.W. 牛 EP. Remaining true to their distinct style, the new EP shows a funkier however darker face of the collective. The drums are heavier and longer, the setup more theatrical. It introduces the listener to autumn, to short days and long nights. The release is accompanied by a vinyl that contains both EPs – showing the two faces of C.O.W. 牛– front-cover to front-cover.
