released September 7, 2015
Caleb Sheehan (AKA Coherx) has devoted the past decade to creating electronic music with an open-mindedness that eschews the notion of genre. For his first physical release - the second in Bladud Flies! Abhorrent Jukebox 7” series - the Cork based producer conjures up a realm of brooding analogue bass line stabs, soaring synth pads and heavy, skittering 505-like beats.
The two tracks presented here are as reminiscent of classic acid house and early electro smashes - such as Hashim’s ‘Al-Naafyish (The Soul)' and Cybotron’s ‘Clear’ - as they are Vangelis’ haunting score for ‘Blade Runner’ and Kraftwerk’s ‘Radioactivity’. Yet for all these frames of reference, Coherx takes this idiosyncratic musical language of the past and manages to make a sound that is very much his own: the perfect soundtrack to a nocturnal drive into the unknown or some dystopian sci-fi flick you never quite got around to renting as a kid.

Abhorrent Jukebox is a curated short-run 7" lathe cut series that is contrary to any genre. Selections are made from demo's sent to us or from what we discover during our daily lives. Each volume is limited to 30 numbered copies, cut by Michael Lawrence at Last Offices and housed in a screen-printed jacket designed by Lauren Winton and printed at Heavyrock Screenprint.
Only 15 copies will be sold via BF! The remaining 15 copies are given to the artist involved.
The lathe cut vinyl is a durable polycarbonate material where the audio quality and durability closely resembles pressed vinyl. They are not to be confused with a dubplate/acetate/lacquer.
Each lathe is 100% handmade and cut in real-time. This is a highly skilled and time-consuming process. They are playable artefacts.
PLEASE READ!! IMPORTANT POSTAGE INFORMATION
