It seems like an age since we released Ascetic’s A Network of Lines That Intersect,
a brooding mixture of dark techno and ambient industrial noise.
Originally cutting his teeth on breakcore under his Machinochrist
moniker, the UK-born, Berlin-based artist has more recently been
refining this brand of intense and atmospheric pseudo-techno.
There is plenty to get your teeth into with The Citizen Made of Glass,
from solid stompers to beatless wonders, all of them carrying a
dexterity and depth that mark Ascetic out as a producer of genuine

Life swirls and twirls without an end to infinity, and so do we… There’s nothing stable and coherent, as much as we’d like to believe that divine lie. The best, perhaps most creative, example of this perception is the stupendous cinematic experience – Holy Motors (2012) which demonstrates exactly that – the infinitude of roles, masks and scripts we follow daily – who to a radical degree and who moderately and consciously. This album speaks of this and more so; it is a transitional passage for me, an omen of an old-new beginning – the transformation of my long-awaiting master-plan from abstract theory into practice. Meaning, creating my own brute universe of otherworldly classical music, which is loosely based on pseudo-coherent ideas of sound, rhythm, motion etc’. But at the same breath is second to none in its far-out bold vision of what an alternative universe of music could be.
Happy Puppy is pleased to add the music of Taker 51 from Spain to our little home on the net. It’s the personal project of Raul DÃaz, where he blends an organic mix of electric and acoustic sounds, ranging from ambient to industrial.
I supposed it would be labeled as ‘post-rock’ (a term I’ve never really understood), but there’s also some nice progressive rock elements, as heard on the opening track “Supercell”. It’s got lots of cool synths, guitars and drums. It’s nicely arranged, produced and played and we hope you enjoy it as much as we.
Something a bit special for this month. First a slightly earlier release than usual and secondly, it’s welcome once again to one of our favourite artists – Planet Boelex returns to Kahvi! After a significant break from Kahvi shores, Boelex is back with a fantastic six track ep with his latest work.
Back with his trademark booming basslines, detailed percussion and moody melodies, amongst the goodies in the EP are Swamp Gas Part 2 rework and a guest appearance by Data Rebel, with a remix of New Beginning.
Listen, and drift off into the depths of one of the greats of electronic music. Tracks of choice for this fan: Galaxy Black for the definitive Boelex sound and New Beginning with a refreshing lemon twist thanks to Data Rebel.
