the album you are about to listen manages to consolidate the essence of two outstanding individuals: philipp m?nch who has made himself a name both as a solo artist and as a member of countless projects, and dan fox a.k.a. loss, a highly regarded veteran of the noise music scene. when philipp and dan met in person a mutual artistic respect was the spark for a collaborative effort and resulted in a transcontinental interchange of inspiration and sound files. after processing each other's basic tracks, the final release clearly showcases both participants' distinctive style as well as the uniqueness of this creative amalgamation.

as the album title indicates, 'transcontinental desperation' is an aural statement of distress, anger and doubt, where topics like injustice and overthrowing the media have been integrated into the voice samples and lyrics. the suspense buried in the sound textures transmits an emotional spectrum of dejection and subliminal aggression, executed with a variety of electronic and acoustic equipment. dark ambient soundscapes are combined with clear and distorted beats, impulsive sequencer lines, abstract effects, manipulated vocals - all these components build a perfect bridge between minimal electro and contemporary industrial music.

'transcontinental desparation' deeply connects two exceptional performers for a haunting listening experience - an enthralling liaison which might well be continued some day...
