Cutting up reams and reams of old school VHS Tapes, VHS Head brings us a new album of the highest lo-fi calibre. The high-tech yet lo-fi brilliance of VHS Head returns to the ever-reliable Skam imprint for another album of videotape-sampled majesty, entitled ‘Persistence Of Vision'. As on 2010's scintillating debut ‘Trademark Ribbons of Gold', much of what makes the Blackpool producer's work so unique is its combination of IDM precision and nostalgic sampling. Not content to simply wallow in a washy vintage haze, the cuts sparkle with pinpoint, bass heavy grooves, making Skam, where the likes of Autechre and Boards of Canada made their debuts, a great home for them.

By using old VHS tape as his primary recording device, the British producer predated the current vogue for fuzzy lo-fi sounds on his 2010 debut LP Trademark Ribbons Of Gold. His follow-up album is called Persistence Of Vision and will see release via Skam, the Manchester label best known for putting out early records by Boards Of Canada and Autechre. A press release describes the record as a mix of "quiz show-esque excess, sleazy soft-core porn twangs and salutations, crazed kids TV themes [and a] liberal smattering of video nasty nastiness."
