Originally released as a c30 cassette edition of 50 by A Soundesign Recording 2014

Versus series III cassette three: These two artists couldn't be better suited to compliment each other. Side A kicks off with Buffalo's Ay Fast (Adrian Bertolone of Jerk, Ken Rei) skillfully collaging a marathon of samples, beats and loops colored in with live synth box swirls. I've been along for the ride with Ay Fast since the beginning and "Dire Docks" is hands down his most engaging and mature composition to date, it's a playfully layered piece that demands repeat listening. Side B follows fluidly with an epic barrage of percussion and electronics from Cleveland's ZVK. I was absolutely mesmerized last year when I saw ZVK play live triggering samples and beats from his drum kit, on record Zack paints an imaginative sound narrative that's hard to pull away from. Don't miss out on this split, it's one of the best and most colorful A Soundesign has ever offered!
