The British are back. At least one Brit, whose name is Joris. J. I don’t know if he is a Brit, but he lives in Britain at least. He’s been manufacturing the most odd noise, the most uncategorizable noise, under this own name since he first released “Untitled”, his first self-released album. A year later he got his first official non-self-released track “Die Antizipation Des Generalized Other“, on the German label Der Schöne Hjuler-Memorial-Fond – a label that seems to be related (or dedicated) to a German art group called Mama Baer und Kommissarie Hjuler. But I’m not really certain of that. Since his two splits done with Ratbag as the first, Filthy Turd as the second, it seems like he stopped making anything under his real name, in 2011. Already back in 2009, he made his first album under the guise of Genus Inkasso, titled “Default Swaps” which was released by Abulia Concepts. However, at the same time that it seemed like he stopped with Joris. J, another album with Genus Inkasso submerged under the title of “Occasionally Slumping, Smiling Weakly“, put out by naboa music. This was in 2011.
Since then, he’s released an album titled “The Despised Pastora” which was put out by Grindcore Karaoke. But that’s not because I’m writing about his music, it’s because his latest mini-album “Under Seals Broken By The Lean Solicitor” was released just roughly two weeks ago on the New York City-imprint Immigrant Breast Nest. The three tracks that are featured on this release range from illbient to a general breakbeat mess, combined with an electro-acoustic layer that keeps everything somewhat in order. It is, however, noticeable that this sounds like something that was just improvised during a session. Take it from that and spin it into some remnant from the 1990’s hardcore-scene in Holland, just to bounce back into some undecipherable combination of noise and spastic movement. Just to have it change into a trip-hop atmosphere after you’ve heard some sampled piano mashed into a drier. Everything can happen between planned happenstance, what’s currently happening and how long it takes for the next thing to occur. It’s just how it goes with Genus Inkasso and his latest release “Under Seals Broken By The Lean Solicitor“. Stream the whole release down below.
