Tewz – Helix EP

Posted on 26 February 2012 by illektrik



We are very proud of our newest release over here at Illektrik; the Tewz – Helix die-cut picture vinyl. This is definitely one of the coolest pieces of vinyl artwork that any of us have seen, and the music is equally impressive. With an initial run scheduled for 1,000, it actually only came in around 522, and we don’t have plans for a second pressing. So, get while you still can! They are already starting to sell out.

Oh, and we almost forgot to mention … In addition to being featured on VICE Italy, Helix  just got nominated for ALBUM OF THE YEAR!  you can help us win by going over to the Pirates Press facebook page & liking the post about Helix.

b.1980 Tewz is a Chicago based beat maker & visual artist (recently featured on Bravo TV’s Work of Art). Armed with dusty fingers, circuit bent drum computers, distorted kalimbas, wonky tape reels, vintage organs, fuzzy guitars, & low frequency oscillation; Tewz makes beats for space ships, planets, and intermagnetic loop travelers. You can expect a lot of crackily samples, lo-fi drums, tape hiss, and a gang of weed smoke.

The title of the album “Helix” is a reference to the Helix Nebula located in the constellation Aquarius.

Helix is limited to 500 worldwide.

Also available through Dusty Groove & Crosstalk Intl.

p.s. There was also a Flexi 7″ released with 2 tracks from the album. We don’t have any left, but it is still floating around in select stores & on the interwebs. I know for a fact (at the time of this post) that there are 3 copies at Reggies Record Store, get them online at Undergound Hip Hop, or even Discogs. For Japanese fans you can order from Disk Union. There may also still be a few at UHF records in Detroit.
