Art-E'facts, Vol. 2

Art Edit

Released: 2nd September 2016 | 10 track leftfield/idm album

Various Artists:

All Pseudonyms of Scott E. Hodgson that were used for recordings made at Art Edit Studio

Scott Edward:

Scott Edward is the artist name used by of Scott E. Hodgson, Electronic Composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records. Employing his first and middle name as a pseudonym the Scott Edward release were always focused on his Detroit techno influences. Here he blends the funky but disjointed electronics of Juan Atkins, Derek May and Carl Craig with the straighter, more driving sounds coming from mainland Europe of the 90's.

Majic-12:

The Majic-12 were formed as an imaginary and legendary breakdance crew from Detroit USA. The original releases even sited that they were recorded at Decoy Studios Detroit MI, but this was all part of the fiction and were in fact all recorded by Scott E. Hodgson, Electronic Composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records at Art Edit Studio. Inspired by what might be considered the earliest attempt to revisit the short lived electro genre since the 80's by Scott Edwards Robot:Robot track on the Man Machine EP. The Majic-12 name was used to fuel Scott's interest in the exploration of both retro and forward looking tracks to fulfil the destiny he felt the genre deserved, before it was mutated into and overtaken by early hip-hop.

Uriel:

The Uriel moniker is a pseudonym of Scott E. Hodgson, electronic composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records and was originally used to pioneer the Future Jazz sound. Inspired by Detroit techno's originators statements of jazz as inspiration, Scott sought to create an even more obvious electronic homage to the genres of Sci-fi Jazz and the machine funk of Parliament. The Uriel style evolved as retro blaxploitation soundtracks and easy listening from the late 60's and early 70's came into vogue, by creating original pieces inspired by this era, but always with a modern twist that set them apart. Latin beats and disco soon joined the Uriel style, alongside Scott's love of Miles Davis' and Herbie Hancock's electric fusion period, to complete the picture.

Ultra-Modern Art:

Ultra-Modern Art is a pseudonym of Scott E. Hodgson, electronic composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records. This was used as vehicle to move away from the darker and more moody techno releases under the Scott Edward name, and into the area of more optimistic, electronic sounding experiences; the kind that he first explored on Scott Edward's own ambient LP Distant Horizons. This avenue was also inspired by retro computing, video games and particularly the film Tron. And so, these ingredients all came together, to provide yet another stylistic side line.

Lexx:

Lexx was pseudonym used by Scott E. Hodgson, electronic composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records. With only a single commercial release under this name, Scott saw this as a slightly more commercial outlet in the Tech House/ Deep House field. Blue Panic gained many dance floor fans during its short life. Scott always aimed to return to the Lexx project for further releases but it never happened until now.

Razor-Heed:

Razor-Heed is a pseudonym of Scott E. Hodgson, electronic composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records. This was a project using Scott's post-apocalyptic, industrial techno alter-ego, that only got used for a single 12 Masters of the Vortex (incorrectly labelled on the original release as Master of Vortex), which has recently been changing hands for large sums on the pre-loved market. There was a double album presented to ACV in 93 for a release proposal, which was rejected on the grounds of being too hard!!! This is now released here for the first time as the Iconoclast album.

Release:

Part of the Art Edit Studio Master Tapes series.
