Horhos is a two-member ”band” from Hungary. Their music combines ambient, drone, folk and other elements (e.g. natural field recordings) into a unique sound. The band was formed in 2012, their first, untitled album was released in September 2014 via Bandcamp. The album received high publicity in Hungarian internet-based music press and was acclaimed by the critics and listeners. It works best with closed eyes and opened heart!
To be human is possible. In this context, a robot with a human appearance wants to become more manlike, to be part of society, acting in it. The problem arises when his artificial brain will not process some things. He does not understand the behavior, customs, values, decisions and reason of human decadence. Each one of the electronic components that comprise him were programmed to function as an ideal and perfect human being (according to the standard of humanly possible perfection), he understands humanity in this way.
In reality, in human society as such, he does not find anything like himself. The human being IS NOT what has been programmed into his database. The real human being is practically totally the opposite.
The artificial intelligence with which he is equipped permits him to make the best decisions, to continue as what he is, a robot with human appearance, an autonomous and perfect machine, far from humanity, declaring himself, NON-HUMAN.
The characteristic analog sound of Gozne returns, though this time it seems harder and colder, approaching the sound of EBM (electronic body music) and old-school electro. The voice, already roboticized, serious, strange, paraphrases its own language mixture of English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Mapudungun, not so unintelligible.
Perhaps because of the concept behind the album, 4 x 4 rhythms do not abound, although this does not separate it from the root of Gozne’s work, which carries a sound with experimental characteristics to the dance floor.
Gozne is my father and knowing his musical works since always, and surely because of my metal roots, this is the album that I like most.

Complexity is the seed of all beauty. Sweet, sacred complexity.
Structure upon structure; forming, spreading, disassembling.
Complexity is the mother of all life. Loving, nourishing complexity.
Networks of networks; winding, braiding, intertwining.
Complexity is the key to simplicity. Eternal, primordial complexity.
Numbers encode numbers; transforming, convolving, multiplexing.
Complexity is the essence in experience. Stretchy, squelchy complexity.
Sounds inside sounds; melting, crumbling, coalescing.
Inhale Ashes is a young producer who loves folley sounds and effects. His sound has been influenced by glitchy triphop, electroswing and the like. In his tunes, carefully engineered and complex microstructures are used to assemble pulsating and groovy rhythms. The result is surprisingly direct and intense.

Marc has been in the business for a while, being a member of the recording and touring band Beautiful 2000 but since the breakup of that band, he’s been writing and recording his own material.
This extended EP of eight songs was recorded after a long visit to Kobe, Japan in 2004. Inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams, ‘Eight Dreams’ was recorded, played, written, mixed, mastered and produced by Marc Stapleford. It has a delightful mixture of laid-back acoustic and electronic-flavoured textures, with the odd turntable and field recording thrown in.
“Eight dreams dreamt in one night. From young to old. This record is in celebration of human spirit and imagination. Long live us.”
