Juan Antonio Nieto | Static
“Static” is a short album of abstract concrete music. The main idea was to use “field recordings” from restaurants and coffee shops, mostly the sounds of plates, spoons, knifes etc., as well as sounds recorded while the artist himself was having breakfast. He also uses sets of found sounds, from objects at home. He mixes the different timbres with minimal electronics, trying to give the result a natural feel. For this album he chose 6 tracks out of 12 – the ones that worked better with the concept. The dark drones were composed especially for each theme and then added to the percussive sounds, conveying an abstract, ambient and dreamlike sense.

For its 28th release, Da ! Heard It Records presents Skinfaxe’s first album: Failure System.
An opus of eight tracks of electronic sounds, Failure System offers us a well-led orchestration of synthetic derailments.
Like a good tour guide, Skinfaxe takes us to the hidden corners of her diverse ambiences and sonorities, experimented on in Reason. The result is an album with an increasing intensity in which every sound is whittled from its raw form, ready to receive pageantry and arrangements to bring out a piece with a colorful personality.

Malignant Cove is adcBicycle’s 3rd album. All tracks are about a rocky ocean cove in Nova Scotia, Canada. The album was constructed to be catchy, dark, background music. The music engages the listener with gritty analog sounds, loosely played instruments and driving beats, yet at the same time sits peacefully in the background with distant vocals, slow building drama and a consistent dark pop mood.
