A 8 track techno album (36m 23s) — released August 14th 2015 on Experimedia

Limited edition of 300 copies. Experimedia presents Fabrik, the second album on Experimedia by Denmark's Jannick Schou following his 2011 album The Act of Shimmering. Like his 2013 self released EP Fasjil, Fabrik sees Schou further fold his powerful ambient sound into deep & heavy techno territories.

“Skov II” seems to be hiding something. On the latest from Danish noisemaker Jannick Schou, wallops of percussion and melody flex into the expanse of noise by which “Skov II” seems, initially, to be defined. What’s going on under the rug? Sure, samples of neighing horses inflict the track with a sense of doom and gloom, but Schou seems more keen on making your head shake than scaring you away. The video for “Skov II” highlights the track’s balance of graveyard ambience and late night fun. We’re driven through a world of twisting lines and chattering digital shapes; assaulted by video artifacts and occasionally by obfuscated “real world” images like that of an eye opening and closing (at least I think that’s what it was). Though you might be hard-pressed to come up with a way to categorize “Skov II” (is it the night out or the nightmare?), it’s more than likely you’ll be pulled into its rhythm. - Henry Schiller nofearofpop.net

Danish dronemaker Jannick Schou is well-regarded for his ambient work, so it's intriguing to hear him explore another side of the hypnotic with the slowed-down funeral techno of "Fabrik." Built around motorik drum programming and meticulously backmasked samples, Schou washes his synths out with filters that wouldn't sound out of place in the Basic Channel back catalogue, flanked by desiccated handclaps and metallic triplet scuffs. A gothic synth and a forlorn chanter carry the melody, getting chopped up and delayed with slow motion precision. What follows are sibilant drones before leftover sounds of industry draw the party to a close. - Lance Higdon AdHoc.fm

In a minimal electronic production dusted with five or so layers of sample manipulation and filtered synth sweeps, the tone of a bass drum can make or break the whole affair. Thudding through the interstices, maintaining the grid, reminding us that our human hearts beat and pump blood to our extremities — the bass drum has responsibilities to fulfill. It asks us, not so kindly, to move. If "Fabrik," the title track of Jannick Schou's new album on Experimedia, was just a bass drum loop, I would want to listen to it. But the danish ambient/electronic mastermind provides much more, foregrounding his massive fine-grained pulse in a web of lush abstraction populated with corrupted vocal melodies and waves of side-chained static. The industrial grind thickens over five minutes of syncopated pounding as the conveyor belt continues to spin off into infinity. The visuals for "Fabrik" sketch a black-and-white quasi-narrative of machinery, unionized labor, and public demonstration. Steel girders pass by from the window of a moving vehicle. The crane lowers into the crater. Molten liquid flows into the mold and emerges as a giant metal cylinder. Schou blows the break whistle and the workers set down their tools. They take a breather. - Tiny Mix Tapes Tiny Mix Tapes

Five minutes of electronic thump that sounds as if it is literally coming from under the ground. Muffled techno pumps on, melded to industrial shuffle and seemingly several other layers of dusted, manipulated sound. The Dane known as JANNICK SCHOU (also performs as CYLON) has just released a new record on the exceptional EXPERIMEDIA called "FABRIK," his second for the label. Known more for ambient noise excursions that toy with electronic-dance-music ideas, this outing is a bit of a flipping of the script by Schou, as evidenced here by "Fabrik" and its accompanying visuals. Bleakness rules the day, as the track thickens, inching toward its grey conclusion. Perfect for the shitty day I've been having. - Boston Hassle Boston Hassle
