|HeCTA The Diet Limited 180gram Red Vinyl LP + Download
HeCTA is the brainchild of Kurt Wagner, Ryan Norris and Scott Martin of Lambchop, but don't call it a "side-project"! HeCTA is rather an "expanded universe"!
Exploring and experimenting with the idea of combining the notion of “song”, elements from stand up comedy, electronic music and a shared love of the electronic form and itʼ;;s many permutations, HeCTA and the album ʼ;;The Dietʼ;; does not sound like anything these guys have done before.
“We were looking for a new way of making songs incorporating these things, to make something concise on beat. The form is not such a surprise when you consider other electronic collaborations Iʼ;;ve been involved with: Zero 7ʼ;;s remix of Lambchopʼ;;s “up with people” and co writing X-press2ʼ;;s “Give It”.
"The results became “The Diet” and those songs are with us now. As HeCTA we take our approach seriously and are respectfully aware of the great electronic music created throughout it's history continuing into the present. So much so that when it came time to mix these recordings we reached out to some of the central figures of the genre. Such greats as Morgan Geist*, John McEntire** and Q*** all had a hand in shaping the refined sound we present to you.“ - Kurt Wagner
