Biography

Since their 2003 album, Lithium Cafe, Procedure have been issuing difficult electronic music through the Faktion Recordings label. Lithium Cafe combines found sound with shifting digital atmospherics, while showing their ability to employ house basslines and even dub reggae to serious effect. You can’t dance to it, but you’ll have fun trying.

Procedure’s second album, 2004’s Private Language, moved in a harder direction. The stand-out tracks are “Touch” and “Intra Venus”, which subvert trance progressions with a nod to the artist’s electronic body music influences. “Normal” is a fierce bite of industrial dance music.

October Crisis, a mini-album released in 2006, returns to the dub and ambient experiments of the first album. “Recover” follows the pattern of minimalist works, inspired by Philip Glass, while “Dear Leader” lets Pierre Elliot Trudeau explain the suspension of civil rights during the 1970s in Canada, using his own words. It’s a chilling pre-telling of the story of modern politics.

Nothing Remains, another mini-album, was released in 2008. From the energetic opening of “Hazchemix” to the subtle, haunting close of “Eye Contact (Reprise)”, Procedure are in fine form. Bass lines throb, synths pulse and drum machines drill, while samples lifted from the headlines add to the proceedings.
