Gridline’s first album from bump side. The main theme of Videogame is perception of reality. “The music is inspired by video games and computers in many ways. This time I decided not to use any audio samples, so it is just synths and drum machines. I’d say, on this album Computer is singing about reality outside of him”.
Sunjaman is an upcoming producer from Athens, Greece. Being a musician & bass player himself, he has always been exploring the sound of the bass, trying to travel into new territories on his effort to establish his own sound. On the process of exploring the bass territory, he had joined many bands and created numerous side-projects, from punk to hip hop. Nevertheless, dub has always been his main goal.
Inspired by the originality of roots dub and influenced by the modern dub steppa scene, he began to produce and public his tracks online. He made his debut release in 2013 and continued with many collaborations and releases. This is the first time he collaborates with Dubophonic.
The style of Sunjaman’s can’t be described by only one musical genre. It combines many elements of bass music, such as dubstep, jungle, steppa, roots, dubwise. This is eminent in this 7-track EP, consisting of three original tracks and four alternative cuts.
Nuff respect to Northical from the Greek band/soundsystem Kako Synapantima for vocalising “Heavyweight Sound”, as well as Manwel T from Dubkey Records for his version of “Outta Here”. Big shout out also to Jungle Raiders for a very energetic jungle cut of “Witness the day”. The cover art is credited to Katerina Arvaniti.

We come from Aqua – the first breath, the final tear.
Aqua is life, boundary, energy, protection, mystery, challenge,
attraction, distance, death, dream, memory. Aqua is simple and
infinite, complex and inexplicable.
This album is Aqua.
Songs melt and echo in each other, glide, evolve and return,
It’s a minute bend in a universal, eternal, flow – it’s a glimpse of
something we all share, the One we wordlessly are.
The second offering by Purple Mountain Peal is an obscure unidentified object rolling adrift in an entropic void in search of the zero degree of music. There’s virtually no melody in these tracks and no rhythm, either, for no rhythmelodical coordinates are to be found in the regions the duo explore this time.
Alternately choking in desperation or floating in blissful oblivion, it is very difficult to remember that all these dark sounds are originated by such homely, apparently harmless instruments as acoustic piano, acoustic and electric guitars. A warning, if you like, that even the most ordinary objects or ideas may reveal dark sides one has never thought of.
Free Variety Theatre was founded in early 2013 by Alexander Cutteridge and Daniel Moschopoulos as a vehicle for online collaboration—initially non-realtime distance collaborations with likeminded artists on SoundCloud. We have already established working relationships through attentive offline collaboration with musicians and producers in North and South America, Australia and throughout Europe, and have recently extended our outlook into the realm of tele-musical internet performance.
In parallel to our collaborative efforts, we have, over the last year or so, been developing and refining more conventional modes of improvising (namely playing in the same space and time). “Galactic Anatomy” is FVT’s first collection of recordings featuring the two of us playing alone. We have cautiously defined the genre as “techneurotic jazz”. The main intrigue/challenge from the outset has been to convincingly integrate improvised performance on traditional acoustic instruments (piano, electric guitar, trumpet) with digital electronic devices (laptop, samplers, analogue modelling).
