Various Artists

“netBloc Vol. 51: Embark!”

Whenever I begin the process of listening for a netBloc release, I have to wade through such a large amount of not so awesome music. While doing so, when I do find gems, it immediately changes my mood and makes the task of finding more great music, that much easier. Once I’ve got about 30 or so gems, I know that I’ve got some great music for the next volume, but what’s still unclear is which songs will ultimately make the cut, how well they’ll flow together and which ones I’ll have to remove because I can’t reach the artist or label. Eventually, though, I arrive at the final sequence that I can throw into my music player and listen to while preparing the compilation for release.

This time around, the final compilation is just so very, very good. Don’t get me wrong, each one is great, but there’s something about this collection of songs that’s unique. Perhaps it’s the way they flow together, or maybe certain songs work together so well that it makes the whole that much better. Whatever the case may be, I think netBloc Vol. 51: Embark! is likely to eventually be considered among your favorites… at least I hope so!

For this volume, we’ve got Electronic, Hip-Hop, House, Indie, Jazz, Post-Punk, Post-Rock & Soul from all over the world for you to enjoy and listen to. So download your copy… put your player on loop and spin it all day while you work!

Francisco Pinto – Retarded

[pn105]

Francisco Pinto

“Retarded”

“Francisco Pinto returns to the tracks with “Retarded“, a more defined, more pop, more danceable work, suitable for all music lovers who enjoy quality pop made in Chile.

A flashback to the 80’s with sounds full of synths, highly sticky melodies like in “Los sueños (the dreams)”, with the collaboration of singer Fakuta, or “Mil Noches” (Thousad Nights), with the participation of Elisita Punto (MKRNI), Javier Barría, Diego Ridolfi and La Entrópica.

Faithfully following the national electro pop scene that characterizes us so much, Francisco Pinto manages to find his space with a sound more envelopving , taking us on this journey that we are looking for so often when playing a disc, tracks like “Time to Time”, “Spring Boy” are examples of this.

As a versatile disc, pop, retro, spaciality, and elegance are all elements that make up the formula which after long years Francisco Pinto utilized in his new work, which will surprise more than a few.”

“Nearly eight years have passed since the launch of “Boo Boo“, the previous disc of Francisco Pinto. And though that may not mean much in more purist genres, in electronica and on the dance floor it’s an eternity. In 2008, Pinto fit perfectly with the trend of the time, which was looking with admiration to the time that disco music turned from the orchestras to the synthesizers, without losing the sense of melody, the chorus, and the hooks. On this path singer / composers as diverse as Fakuta and Javier Barría accompanied him.

Jump to 2016 and many of his local colleagues, and those around the world, have drifted away from melodies to emphasize the rhythmic or the atmospheric, through concise and reduced releases, born of the times. Because of this, Retarded, Pinto’s new album, seems a strong declaration of principles. It not only has 14 songs – longer than even many LPs of today, but it also does not move the focus a single millimeter from his need for melodic expression, no matter what happens with the rest.

Still more people accompany him here: in addition to the same Fakuta and Barría, other names appear from the local pop scene like Elisita Punto (the voice of MKRNI), Deplasticoverde and La Entrópica. He accompanies himself, either with his own voice or through a vocoder as well. In sound, the references remain in the period between 1975 and 1985: space disco and synth pop. Music that can function as much on the dance floor as at home, a task that much electronic music not only fails to seek, but which it could hardly achieve.

Retarded is a timeless and effective album.”

Klaten – Klaten

[D!HR-30]

Klaten

“Klaten”

For its 30th release, Da ! Heard It Records gives a touching testimony: that of Klaten’s computer’s last days. Inspired by the epileptic glitches of a video card used up to its circuit, this disc’s seven pieces form a meticulous assembly of violent unknown flying objects from which otherworldly melodies emerge.

“Tergiversure”, “Déglutogène”, “Exoplaste”: each track seems to be an attempt at a graft to sustain the life of a microprocessor on its last legs for a just a few moments more. Klaten, a professional 3D infographist, has indeed retained from his practice an extreme attention to detail and a taste for peculiar universes, as evidenced by the disc’s sleeve, signed Elise Kobisch-Miana, a panorama of crystals with shattered perspectives reminiscent of the album’s numerous landforms.

Leading the way with Stipulite, Klaten takes the listener into the winding tunnels of a labyrinthian cave where bouncing rhythms sometimes trigger the tinting of dim mineral glows. Digging deeper into the matter, he pursues his course head hung low, through the sparkling reflections of Exoplaste and the sharp breakbeats of Tergiversure. Once at the heart of an aural boiling magma from which he draws new metallic materials (Phoryaphile, Gramafion), he completes his journey through the breath of Stratiformis in order to cool down the overheating vents of his machine positively controlled at all the VST. Alas, it is already too late…

Ultimate souvenir from this voyage, the Parisian C_C concludes with his own vision of the trip: a remix with massive rhythms and the sound of his analog machines humming in the background. A tribute to the complex landscapes of Autechre and the experiments of the label Schematic, this disc, with its rich and startling imaginary, remains nameless. Like a challenge, the sonorities it deploys give all the hints necessary for the listener to find it a name.

Gridline – Music For Sleepers

Gridline

“Music For Sleepers”

After two years of silence, Gridline came back. “This is a collection of tracks I created in the last two years. They are all in some way connected to dreams, sleep, night time, and other similar themes. Music For Sleepers is the sequel to the previous album Videogame, but it is about another virtual reality. This is the music for all the people, because we all sleep and dream, but it is not the music to fall asleep to.”
