48V – South II (2011)

In 1966, Neumann GmbH of Berlin, Germany, presented a new type of transistorized microphone to the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, NRK. Norwegian Radio had requested phantom-powered operation. Since NRK already had 48 volt available in their studios for their emergency lighting systems, this voltage was therefore used for powering the new microphones, KM 84 model, and is the origin of 48-V phantom power.
“South II” is the second full-length album by 48V from Hunan, Chengdu, China and it’s instrumental. A quite interesting blending of post-rock and electronic elements into a flowing, growing, sparkling music with a nice, electric groove and some catchy themes.
And considering they name, I might be wrong thinking of 48 volt while their MySpace URL is 48… vodka. 😀 Read more 48V – South II (2011)
