Biography

Positioning themselves as the leading producers of what they call (perhaps somewhat sarcastically) "sophisticated exotica for adults," Quiet Village -- Joel Martin (aka Zeus) and Matt Edwards (Radio Slave) -- released a trio of 12" singles across 2005 and 2006 for Whatever We Want. While the sources of their sample-heavy material became increasingly known (the opening to the Alan Parsons Project's Pyramid, Janis Ian's Giorgio Moroder-produced "Fly Too High," Captain & Tennille's "Never Make Your Move Too Soon," et cetera), interest in the releases did not wane; demand far outstripped sales. Two years later, !K7 remedied the supply problem by issuing Silent Movie, a full-length release containing five of the six tracks from the WWW singles, in addition to seven new tracks. Martin and Edwards' self-issued Fragments of Fear mixes have only enhanced the duo's reputation for spinning the obscure and terminally uncool into gold. ~ Andy Kellman
