"Rolling industrial techno muscle from Orphx on Adam X's Sonic Groove imprint. The long running Canadian duo's first vinyl of 2014 yields the slippery wormhole dynamics and agitated torque of "What Will Burn" on the A side, backed with the grumbling acid jack and fetishistic sci-fi atmospheres of "Drowning For You" with its nasty sting-in-the-tail, plus the percolating hydraulic rolige and aquatic doom pads of "Tangled Paths" - Boomkat

 

Live dates: 2014 / 2015

Plans are in the works for a few North American dates before the end of the year, and we are planning another European tour for spring 2015. For all bookings (Orphx and related projects including Eschaton and O/H), please contact michelle@pullproxy.com

Eschaton

The first release from our new collaboration with Ancient Methods has been repressed by Token Records. Available from Hard Wax, Boomkat, Juno, Forced Exposure, Bent Crayon, Deejay, Decks, Chemical Records, Norman Records, Beatport and many more.

"Outstanding Industrial / Doom rooted Techno bomb" - Hard Wax 

"Ancient Methods and Orphx team up for a proper industrial techno session on Token. This sh*t kicks like Thor's size 12's, forging fearsome new alloys from traces of black metal, industrial-strength drums and up-to-the-moment electronic treatments. 'Age Of Iron' attacks first with pickaxe snares and billowing, mutant bass shapes and 'Kali' wreaks havoc with pendulous kicks and cattle-prod stabs bound to leave internal bruising. The cavernous reverb treatments and deftly spaced drums of 'Seven Signs' make for the most impressive highlight, cleaving the gloom between proper industrial and techno, and 'Degenerate' shifts into ragged hi-tech syncopation reminding of AM's best cuts with Regis as Ugandan Methods" - Boomkat 

 

Boundary Conditions 12"

Aavailable on vinyl and/or digital download from Juno, Hard Wax, Boomkat, Decks, Beatport and many other distributors, or direct from us at www.orphx.bandcamp.com.

"EBM leaning, dark, heavy, fresh Techno EP - TIP!" - Hard Wax

"razor sharp metallic riffs and an incessant percussive build... 9/10" - DJ Mag

"With numerous vinyl, CD and cassette releases over the past 20 years, Orphx are true techno veterans. Boundary Conditions sees them continue to blur the lines between techno, industrial and noise music with stellar results. 'Outcast' begins with a tunnelling bass pulse, slowly giving way to savagely distorted synth blasts, gradually building to a frenzy of broken noise. 'Vanishing Point' is similarly beautiful in its abrasiveness, coating its simple beat with distorted drum rolls and delicate tones, while 'Periphery' takes a gentler approach letting its textures and rhythms unfold and breathe in more cavernous surroundings. Once again the duo prove why they one of techno's most enduring outfits" - Juno

"Uncompromising, EBM-infected techno from Canada's revered Orphx duo. 'Outcast' makes subtle virtue of pensively building arrangement reaching a lip-biting climax of distortion and sour synth discord shackled to bone-breaking kicks. 'Vanishing Point' is stripped down, optimised industrial techno with elemental dynamics, and 'Periphery' steps off into abyssal bass oscillations and low-slung industrial swing.' - Boomkat

Hunger Knows No Law

Aavailable on vinyl and/or digital download from Juno, Hard Wax, Boomkat, Decks, Beatport and many other distributors, or direct from us at www.orphx.bandcamp.com.

"Hovering precariously between industrial techno and rhythmic noise, this plate is thrilling. It's also packed with laser effects and all manner of panning insanity" - Foxy Digitalis

"Twisted, tangled rhythms and fuzzy, feedback-filled sub bass lingering with intent in the background... 'Hunger' sounds like Orphx wanted to choose between the club and their natural habitat and decided this time to head back into darkness" - Juno
