Release Date - 8th October 2021
aphtc return to Arcane Patterns with a two-track single for their second release on the imprint, following the success of last years 'When Grounds Shift'.
'Rewind The Subject' is a stripped-back, anxious roller sitting at 130bpm, with modulated subs and panicked percussion.
Flip the record for 'Becoming None', which filters distorted think-breaks among a frenzy of razor-sharp stabs that scythe through the tweeters.
"Dance like smoking weed on mars, Not like a tree in the wind on earth
Follow the hihats, Not the dreams that chase you
Fast-forward yourself, Rewind the subject"

Released 17th August 2018
Arcane Patterns is a vinyl & digital label that encompasses kinetic body music by translating sacred codes, mathematical polyrhythms and dooming moods, catering to both the club and the home listener.
Shaped by the emancipatory energies of the hardcore/punk scene in their youth, Berlin & Mainz-based duo 'aphtc' (aka Kl.ne & CRΞSC) now immerse themselves in the realms of bass-heavy club music, sonic fiction and syncopated hyperstition.
Limited to 300 copies with unique artwork which quotes the late great Mark Fisher, this 12" meticulously executes the modern-day UK Techno/Bass sound design with clean tensity and dread. Don't sleep.
