about

Orphx : Archive 1993/1994 : 2xLP (Mannequin, 2017)

Mannequin Records is proud to present an archival collection from what could be considered the genesis of Orphx's unique sound. Inspired by early industrial music and new waves of noise from Japan and Europe, this compilation gathers together some of the best material from their first two cassette releases along with previously unreleased tracks recovered from the original 4 track tapes.

Orphx : 01 / 02 : 2xCD (Hospital Productions, 2017)

There are less than a handful of bands that can honestly say they were equally involved in the early 90’s noise scene, the mid 2000’s dark ambient scene, and what simultaneously emerged as the power noise movement in Europe. Orphx is one of these pioneers and have gracefully interwoven their tortured electronic architecture among the various subcultures of fringe electronics, while seamlessly continuing on to remain a vital part of the contemporary wave of industrial techno hysteria. We are proud to present Orphx 01/02, the double CD counterpart to the noble Mannequin 2xLP vinyl release.

"Taking their cues from then contemporary European and Japanese noise scenes, Orphx hatched a feral and fucking busted sound that stirred improvised elements of power noise, electro-acoustic process, and the notion of ‘death industrial’ into a crushing cacophony at their erstwhile member Aron T’s basement studio. It’s all basically as rare as chalky white dog shit (which we’ve not seen since the ‘90s; coincidence?!?!) and totally aches for the attention of noise grotbags everywhere." - Boomkat

"The general lack of a consistent BPM is one of the things that impresses me the most about this archive. The percussion flows in and out like a tide beating on cold, jagged rock. What’s even more startling is hearing this recording much later and in the scope of history, comparing it to the music of it’s time. Orphx was so non-linear, so far beyond any of the song writing of their era that it’s not hard to imagine this recording emerging today - when experimental electronics and noise have become a part of our vocabulary. The archive is nothing short of a dystopian masterpiece." - The Brvtalist

"Extremely fascinating listen - of its time but also beyond it." - The Quietus
