- A 12-inch by HXE is also on the way.
UIQ, the adventurous label run by UK experimental producer Lee Gamble, is making its first foray into album projects in the coming months.
To date, UIQ has put out only EPs, but that'll change in late August with the release of an album by rkss titled DJ Tools. rkss, real name Robin Buckley, made the LP entirely out of sounds sourced from an EDM sample pack, which were manipulated by computer processing to create, as UIQ puts it, "something perhaps not wholly anticipated by the pack's creators." (The record's tracklist uses Beatport's description of the pack.)
"DJ Tools was where I began to formulate my own relationship to club culture as a mostly sober, transgender person—what version of club music did I want to engage with in that social space?" said Buckley. "Fluid, dynamic and reacting to audience. Highlighting the social. Sharing and connecting through my difference rather than erasing it."
UIQ has two more albums lined up: Nkisi's 7 Directions and Zuli's Terminal. The label will also put out a new 12-inch, INDS, from an artist named HXE. Further details on those records, including release dates, are still TBA.
