Inside the hive-mind of US producer Taskforce, there’s a cacophony of sounds, memories and ideas: of listening to Throbbing Gristle and Aphex Twin, and then channeling it all into the tedious (then euphoric) motions of learning how to use Fruity Loops while still in middle school. He calls his sound “Timbaland on 1200mg of DXM making techno,” and it shows. It’s not just a “bedroom” endeavor, though: he’s produced beats for experimental NYC rapper Le1f and Fade To Mind’s Nguzunguzu have remixed him. Taskforce gives his debut on Boysnoize Records with ‘Liquid Cooled’, but it won’t be his last appearance on the label, so keep an eye out for more. Stay cooled.
Taskforce has been invited to participate in the Red Bull Music Academy 2015, which will take place in Paris from October to November. http://daily.redbullmusicacademy.com/2015/06/rbma-paris-2015-participants
