Violent Approach S 2020
by ESSA (Carincur & Jari Marjamaki) from "... Returning Whence Their Darkened Spirits Came"
Dedicated to what made us dance and motivated to make music when the city was still breathing, it is a return in spirit to where we felt happiest, the dark sweaty caves of the urbanized underground.
In recent times, dance music has increasingly become commodified for touristic consumption and for the profit of few establishments. Quarantine has brought no solution so far to the reduced openness between musicians, instead heavily damaging the underground community, which was built on sharing and mutual support.
This is an open hand inviting for action, for communication, to help give to those from whom tourism leeched off.
Currently proceedings are going to fund the Cantina Solidária da Mula do Barreiro, who are distributing food among those who need it most.

Sorry if i make love with sound LP 2019
Crosses a middle space between light and shadow: anything we can recall as an atmosphere.
Everything is infused with spectrum, ruins, fantasies, delusions and unsettled ideas. A very fragile narrative is asserted here and there, sometimes through its own voice, others with collages of other people's material, giving us the minimum clue to access Carincur intimacy. Something is happening above diminished bodies, sedated minds, alienated identities and the possibility of the human being itself. The theme is apocalyptic, but the idea is from someone who’s not afraid of being restless, since restlessness allows always one last attempt.
We can observe a few references in Carincur’s work, such as Grouper or Ingla Copeland, or even the eternals Laurie Anderson and Delia Derbyshire; but her music is wider than something we can compare it with. In the middle of the scattered atmospheres, there’s something we can touch, alive and with an horizon renowned whenever we hear it. “Sorry If I Make Love With Sound” is also about the possibility of finding new reasons in the inbetween: to start over again, away from crystallized classifications.
Written and produced by Inês Carincur.
