Gamers in Exile

Italians Guido Zen and Valerio Faggioni (Gamers in Exile) are known for holing up in their South London flat surrounded by vintage electronics, surfacing every few months to release colored seven-inch singles. Their trademark sound, the use of computer voice and vocoder, follows in the tradition of Charles Dodge, Nobukazu Takemura, and Add N to (X). There's something about the computer voice that makes it funny, sad, and frightening all at the same time, and Gamers in Exile use this mix in their favor to create music that mirrors those emotions.

The featured track, "I am a Decent Man," uses a harmonic computer voice loop as the foundation for a song full of abstract beats and dramatic strings. It comes from Tigerbeat6, Inc, a double-CD with contributions from Cex, Blectum from Blechdom, Lesser, Medicine, Noriko Tujiko, Twerk, Pimmon, Ted Sulkowicz, Kid606, Gold Chains, Languis, Daedelus, DAT Politics, Stars As Eyes, Mikael Stavostrand, Stilluppsteypa, and more.
