M-PeX

“hado [remastered]”

M-PeX revisits his debut album Phado, originally put out in 2007 by Thisco and Fonoteca Municipal de Lisboa, now remastered and available free for download at Enough Records. The album is dedicated to his grandfather, Luís Tomás Pinheiro, master of the portuguese guitar, who introduced M-PeX to the fado universe. In Phado, M-PeX assumes the portuguese guitar as a characteristic trait of his musical identity, mixing it with electronic music. Cover artwork by Marco Madruga.

Various Artists – netBloc Vol. 50: superSonic

Various Artists

“netBloc Vol. 50: superSonic”

First and foremost, I’d like to send out an extra special thank you to all artists and netlabels who, over the years, have been part of our story through the netBloc series. When I first had the idea to begin this series in 2006, I really had no idea if anyone would be interested in being included on such a compilation series. I surely had no idea whether or not the listeners would come. Thankfully, the response was great and that has allowed us to build on that with our original release formats, as well! It’s been a hell of a ride thus far.

2016 promises to be an interesting year for us with new formats that will see us giving back to the Creative Commons community with very remix friendly content. It’s still too early to give away all the details of what we’ve got cooking, but stay tuned.

Today we’ve got netBloc Vol. 50: superSonic for you to enjoy — a selection that includes Hip-Hop, Synthpop, Indie, Rock, Electronic, Trip-Hop, Downtempo, Electro and Future Beats. A global collection which even includes a sneak-peak of a forthcoming Tha Silent Partner release, which is set to drop on February 9th!

Thanks again to all Vol. 50 artists and labels! As always, this series really couldn’t happen without you.

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!

Die Leere im Kern Deiner Hoffnung – Freiheit Aushalten

[wuerfel 18]

Die Leere im Kern Deiner Hoffnung

“Freiheit Aushalten”

Freiheit will in diesen Tagen nicht nur immer wieder erkämpft und verteidigt sein. Freiheit muss auch ausgehalten werden wenn es brenzlig wird. Genau so, wie es mit der Toleranz immer dann spannend wird, wenn sie einen herausfordert und zwangsläufig zu Akzeptanz und eben nicht Ignoranz führen muss, genau so wird es mit der Freiheit dann spannend, wenn sie ihren Preis einfordert und sich gleichsam selbst auf dem Altar des diffusen Verlangens nach mehr gefühlter Sicherheit zum Opfer anbietet.

Machen wir uns nichts vor: Freiheit für mehr vermeintliche Sicherheit zu opfern ist eine bescheuerte Idee. Umso blöder, wenn es am Ende noch nicht einmal mehr wirkliche Sicherheit gibt.

Was zu tun ist, sollte jedem Einzelnen klar sein. Doch verharren wir in Agonie, pflegen unser Phlegma und überlegen ernsthaft, ob Resignation nicht doch eine Option ist. Die alte Hoffnung Revolution? Bitch, please. Bequem geht die Welt zu Grunde. Viel Spaß dabei.

K.Markov – Excerpt One

[366]

K.Markov

“Excerpt One”

The first release for 2016 is from guest artist K.Markov. A ten track ambient album showcasing a selection from three of his existing albums – The Mist, Transmission and Liquid, which you can find on his bandcamp page.

Following on from his first release on Kahvi under the name Phrulex (which was a single several years ago) K.Markov shows us that his style has evolved into a more mature ambient and chilled out vibe, much akin to Curious Diversions and Solar Fields.

Gently floating atmospheres, mixed with sweeping arpeggios and melodical interludes to keep you listening closely.

Purple Mountain Peal – The Day That Forgot To Break

[SCM-1602]

Purple Mountain Peal

“The Day That Forgot To Break”

“The day that forgot to break” is the third album by Purple Mountain Peal.

This release marks a more piano driven declination of what the duo has to offer in terms of improvisation, creativity and madness. To sum up, what you are about to witness is less chaos and more melody. Take it with a grain of salt by the way, it’s Purple Mountain Peal after all…

[LBN033]

Cuarto / Indiosingracia

“Krilin Split”

“Krillin Split” is a valuable collaboration between two promising young Spanish musicians: Cuarto and Indiosingracia
Tradition, modernity and ingenious experiments gather in ten tracks melting folk, electronic, ambient and pleasant oddness.
“Krilin Split” is cozy, warm, friendly and candidly melancholy.
The first step towards something new.
