about

The second installment in our spring series is a fantastic, and slightly out of character, Bary Center album. Under the moniker Bary Center, Mark Williams has been releasing burnt up, knockout techno at a furious pace on a number of fine labels (Crash Symbols, Skrot Up, MJ MJ, Speaker Footage, Gnar Tapes, Headway). Even with such an impressive discography we can honestly say this is probably our favorite album that he's put out yet (and he'd agree). No Stars finds Bary exploring the deepest depths of dub, psych, techno, ambient and noise, while still somehow maintaining an effortless flow throughout it's nearly hour long play time. Bary has a knack for drawing out a groove or texture to its fullest fruition, rewarding an attentive and thorough listen, but at the same time creating a sonic environment where you can just let it ride and zone out.

In M. Williams' words - "I wanted this album to feel like just one day, so I tried to build a snapshot of all the feelings and scenarios that a person goes through in a single day - the relaxing parts, the intense parts, the hype parts, the dark parts, the lighthearted parts. I wanted people to press play and by the end of the album be able to connect each track to a part of their day. We get so crazy focused on tomorrow and the big picture that we often forget that just making it through the gauntlet of shit life throws at us in a 24 hour period is quite an accomplishment in itself."
