NOW ON BANDCAMP 50+ Exclusive Tracks on the Electronic Explorations Compilation

“Although Duchamp now offers everything from trench coats to trousers, the core of the collection is very much occasion wear for men who love dressing up, with velvet tuxedos and evening dresses for events from big nights out to a day at the races. The brand has proved to be a huge hit with the wedding market…after all Duchamp is all about the feel-good factor, and what could be more important than feeling good on your biggest day?” – Rrose

Sandwell were, in part, responsible for launching Rrose’s work into the techno community back in 2011, as through a friendship with Juan Mendez, Rrose’s first release under his Marcel Duchamp indebted moniker was hooked up. Nowadays you can mainly find his releases on his own Eaux imprint, a label which was part born out of necessity seeing as Sandwell District have ceased trading as a label (for the time being anyway) and part as relief from the constrictions of working to third party’s specifications.

Given their close working relationship, there are obvious parallels in Rrose’s output with that of Sandwell District, most notably in the highly aestheticized presentation of his work. Interestingly and quite curiously, Rrose borrows from Duchamp for much of his imagery (as well as his live persona). Click onto his RA profile and his bio is reduced to a series of dates. Head to his websites and you’re greeted with a series of images. Dig a bit deeper and it still doesn’t quite make sense. [Source: Fabric]
