Regenerated Headpiece – Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE

[BSXE0017]

Regenerated Headpiece

“Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE”

Can you believe that today we drop our 17th Xtended Edition release? Word… this time around we introduce blocSonic listeners to the completely unique and dope sounds of Regenerated Headpiece (or RHP).

So who are RHP? Well, they’re a hip-hop hybrid musical outfit that I first discovered while doing work for SLAMjamz back in the early 00s. As the story goes with a couple other blocSonic artists that you’ve come to know… I designed covers for a few of their digital releases. When I first heard them I was immediately impressed by their sound. It’s one that’s really hard to pin down because it’s so unique to them. However, their story goes back a little further. They first burst onto New York City’s live music scene in the late 1990s and have been compared to recording artists ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to “Weird” Al Yankovic. Their core members are producer/MC Phon-X (a.k.a. Headsnack), lyricist Shred Lexicon, and DJ Exfyl. Other members of the Regenerated Headpiece family include DJ Sykopath, producer/MC Old Yist, and various session musicians.

Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE is a re-release of their collection of rarities that included remixes by RHP friends and fam. For our Xtended Edition we also brought on blocSonic fam to remix a few joints! RHP also added a couple extra bonus cuts to make this a 3 Disc set!

The collaboraters involved in this project are extensive… musicians, producers, DJs & singers… the RHP extended fam include… Allison Breunig, Bass Killah, Brash, DJ Mockstar, Don Q, ICBM, ILLUS, MenAnt, Milkdrop, Phashara, Phon Juan, Rich Lupes, Slim Waites, Sneaky Pete, Steve “SG the Producer” Garcia, Taylor Jordan & Venomous 2000. If that’s not enough… blocSonic fam also represented… C-Doc, Cutside, Donnie Ozone, dustmotes, The Impossebulls, mGee, Mported Flows & Pot-C!

A very special thanks to Headsnack, Shred Lexicon and DJ Exfyl for being part of what blocSonic does. I’ve long been a fan and am thrilled to have you guys on board… welcome to the blocSonic fam! Mega thanks also goes out to everyone involved!

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

Cousin Silas – Transformations

[CAAM0008]

Cousin Silas

“Transformations”

Cousin Silas returns with his fourth release on CerebralAudio: Transformations. This release centers on shifting minimalist patterns that constantly evolve and transform from beginning to end. These pieces were composed using ebow for the loops and pads and guitar for the patterns that subtly shift and change over time, creating a hypnotic soundscape for the mind.

This release is as abstract as several other releases on CerebralAudio, including The Sky Road. It’s a calm and serene set of pieces that have an implied rhythm, while using an actual percussive instruments, or specific elements within them. Whether it’s music you need for meditation, or to help you focus on a task, this is the work for you. Indulge yourself in eighty minutes of the constantly evolving and transforming soundscapes of Cousin Silas.

NOTE: For the first time we are offering 24bit, 48Khz FLAC encoding of this release!

Daniel Robert Lahey – Iterations

[CACL0002]

Daniel Robert Lahey

“Iterations”

Daniel Robert Lahey makes his third appearance on CerebralAudio with Iterations. The idea behind much of this work is based on the repetition of phrases while subtly changing them over time. It’s the basis of what became known as minimalism in the hands of composers like Steve Reich and Philip Glass.

But, with the iterative nature of these works is apparent, Daniel couldn’t leave could just write a set of derivative works that mimicked contemporary composers. Instead he reaches back into the world of serialism for a couple of these compositions. The density and complexity of these works belies their roots in the concept of minimalism.

It’s the sharp contrast between modern composition styles that makes this work interesting. Daniel has found a way to move between what many would consider to be ambient music and the most challenging classical music without finding any lines. He is an explorer of all ages of music.

Vinze is dead – Corse1993′

[376]

Vinze is dead

“Corse1993′”

A curiously named guest artist again for October. Vinze is dead could be the sign of depression or sentimentality, and the 12 track album ‘Corse1993’ twists and turns in all directions, giving you a nostalgic vibe similar to Boards of Canada, with subtle sounds your ears yearn to hear, to detailed drum tracks – nothing too heavy, just delicate percussion to complement the otherwise sublime tracks.

Perfect for that autumn afternoon in the last of the warm sunny days, or enjoying the crisp approaching winter (as we do here in Finland). All tracks have some great feelings and warmth, but a couple stand out for this fan: Veshangree (very BOC influenced) and Theme from pursuit of happiness which reminds me of ‘Nannou’ by Aphex Twin.

“Broken Doll”

«Broken Doll – это сборник случайных мыслей – треков, которые получились в ходе музыкальных медитаций и импровизаций. Трип-хоп в чистом виде не является моим основным стилем написания музыки, но, пожалуй, именно он оказывает наибольшее воздействие на моё сознание и чувства.» — Eva Schlegel

Eter Dub – In da name of Jah

[DPH026]

Eter Dub

“In da name of Jah”

Eter Dub was founded by the dub master Federico Balza, in Mendoza (Argentina). The project was floating around the air for some years until the first works came out in 2015 through a self-release called “JaH-Fi”. Federico Balza (flute/sax) is a graduated musician from the Universidad Nacionalde de Cuyo with studies on classical flute and member of the Orquesta Sinfonica Juvenil (1st flute) in Argentina. As saxophonist (tenor/alt), flutist and keyboard player he collaborated with many reggae, dub and hip-hop bands like Zona Ganjah, Downbeat and Negritage touring around the underground scene of Latin America (Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil).

Eter Dub offers a new fresh breeze in dub music. His sound cannot be framed into one genre. It is definitely dub, but with references not only to his classical musical studies but also into jazz, which is his second nature. Each composition offers originality and an alternative approach to dub music. From the “linguistical” approach on Hand Of Jah, to the slow and wild “Ras-Sax”, from the funk-jazzy “Jah Trax 5” to the adventurous “Jah Jah Love”, all seven tracks of the EP build a new concept of dub music.

Special thanks to Martin Musso and Richman Fyah for the guitars on this release, El Vignold for the awesome cover art and Salvator & Viento Zondub for the inspiration. Be prepared for something different.

Dallas Simpson – Skegness Lagoon Walk / Gibraltar Point – Improvisations

[PE09]

Dallas Simpson

“Skegness Lagoon Walk / Gibraltar Point – Improvisations”

Field recordings and improvisations recorded at Skegness on the East coast of England.

1. Skegness Lagoon Walk: Wind, Seascape and Improvisation
On August 2nd 2016, at around 6:10pm, while on holiday in Skegness, a live location performance soundwork was created at the Lagoon Walk location.

2. Gibraltar Point: Wind, Seascape and Improvisation
On August 4th 2016 a live location performance was created on the shoreline at Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve at about 9:30am featuring a short walk from the vegetated dune area by the beach to the tidal edge and back to the edge of the dunes.

3. Gibraltar Point Car Park Windscape (vignette)
Recorded in our car on the 4th August 2016 in the Gibraltar Point Visitor’s Car Park shortly before our return home to Nottingham. I discovered by accident that when the driver’s side car door was just ajar a strong wind noise was heard. It was ‘blowing a gale’ at the time. As I had my full binaural recording rig at hand it was too good an opportunity to miss!

Dallas Simpson is an environmental sound artist and has been recording and performing live on location since the mid 1990s. Recordings are exclusively in the binaural format for headphone listening recorded using in-ear custom modified DPA4060 microphones. He engages with locations observing soundscapes and performs live using found objects and surfaces.

Ant The Symbol – You Are Here: Midnight

[BSMX0148]

Ant The Symbol

“You Are Here: Midnight”

Back in September we released an amazing EP by Ant The Symbol called You Are Here: Downtown (if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure you do). Well, it turns out that that EP was the first in a series and today we’ve got the second installment, You Are Here: Midnight!

While listening, it becomes clear why these EPs are part of the same series. There’s a certain sonic character to them that reveals a music artist whose sound is maturing. There’s also a sense of a certain deterministic experimentation.

Whether you’ve heard Ant’s music before or not, be sure that you check it out now. What he’s creating these days is something really special.

Yo, Ant… you did it again… I think you’re channeling greater forces! Simply incredible.

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do.
