“While digging for records at Side One in Warsaw last year, I came across a 12” with no info on it. It turns out that record was Mchy I Porosty’s release for Brutaz. So, it definitely felt right when Kikimora received a demo by Bartosz Zaskórski aka Mchy I Porosty this year.” Along with Technosoul and Pointless Geometry, Brutaz are certainly one of the most exciting labels operating out of Poland. 
For this release Mchy I Porosty has summoned a mob of tortured, mutant soundscapes that narrate crunchy, knocked-up house to devastating effect. The artwork is made up of hand drawn illustrations by Bartosz.

"In this that it sweeps the usual suspects’ most recognisable tropes and translates them into its own scripted semantics, it’s safe to say the music of Polish producer Bartosz Zaskórski, aka Mchy i Porosty, seeks meaningfulness through differentiation rather than superficial kinship, and his latest for Toronto’s Kikimora Tapes is there to attest. Altered vox samples, overbearing grime’y rhythmics processed through the nastiest of lo-fi filters, elements of middle-eastern music, droney analogue belches: everything here is used to blur the lines and put you off the scent for good.

Lifted from Zaskórski’s highly recommended third tape album, titled ‘The Dead Pterodactyl‘, our premiere ‘Memetic Magic Of X‘ conjures up a disparate cast of components and stitches them together as one mad scientist would. From a teeming bed of what seems to be desert music strings passed through the meat grinder, hacked dubstep rhythms emerge like emanations from another dimension. Figure yourself a cold-as-death call for disobedience and sedition from a happy, quiet past into current dystopia; forbidden transmissions are going through. This is number one." -Inverted Audio
