Ruaridh Law, aka DJ and artist TVO / The Village Orchestra, debuts his Broken20 imprint with a conjoining of his disparate selves to form a new beginning. As TVO, his deconstructed dancefloor offerings for Stuff Records garnered praise from the likes of The Wire, FACT and Mary Anne Hobbes, while his elongated namesake pricked up the ears of the experimental community thanks to well-received albums for the Highpoint Lowlife staple. The edits kick off with the incisive and severe 'Wasted Memory', which takes equal influence from experimental techno, funky house and Berlin echo chamber dub. Moreish David Morales organ stabs meld with acid licks and a syncopated neck-crack riddim to enervate feet and heads alike; as a statement of intent, it clearly shows how the TVO sound has mutated once more into the soundtrack of the near future. 'BC7 Memory' drops the pace a little but maintains the sense of dynamic force, fusing a genuine sense of unease with bass pressure before hypnotic pulse chords shines a darklight over the full picture. 'Remaindered Memory' harks back to its 'Wasted' counterpart, but it carries the air of a eulogy for that spirit of uneasy joy, instead rendering a claustrophobic image in greyscale. 'Lost Memory' rounds off the EP over ten stark minutes, from static ambience through beat-driven flex to beatless synth symphonics. 'We Can Remember It For You Wholesale' will be available both digitally and as a DVD-R with free download. It is a work that both celebrates and tries to defy the transitory nature of our broken artefacts, be they physical or mental, internal or external. It depicts a world where nothing is preserved, yet an elusive objective truth nonetheless remains. As such it's the culmination of all of Law's work to date.
