Gate One is the first musical offering by Francesco Palermo, aka TNKS, and everybody here at Sucu Music is very proud of and happy for releasing such a beautiful work as this.
The nightly, highly metropolitan, electronic nature of this music meets the manipulations and visions by Purple Mountain Peal’s Gaetano Fontanazza and Tony Colina, whose intervention gives the music further colours and depth.

“No Human nos presenta sus más tensos pensamientos. Razonamiento industrial, mecánica techno a merced de seres sintéticos. Ruido y dolor como solo ellos lo entienden. Comunicación a 8 bits, duros ritmos maquinales, kaos en la factoría.
Disfruta de la reconversión industrial, deja de ser humano!”
V.A. – String Factory (GERGAZ)
Some months ago a few of the finest young producers from Czech Republic and Slovakia had a wonderful chance to meet together and work on some music. That happened thanks to Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp in Bratislava. Filled with joy and delight part of them decided to meet up again and undertake this creative outburst once again. So thanks to Atelier Bavlna and Red Bull, Fallgrapp, FVLCRVM, Jimmy Pé and Stroon gathered together again on the premises of the String Factory. The guys were joined by two up-and-coming lady producers and vocalists Tante Elze and Nika Mi.
The outcome is a 6 track compilation offering insight into what a co-op of Slovak producers sounds like, released now on GERGAZ Label. The set is rich in terms of tempo, atmosphere, influence and styles and it’s kicked off with an all-in-one banger “Doesn’t Matter” by FVLCRVM and Jimmy Pé. Next up is a lyrical and fantasy-like “Baby Boy” by trio Fallgrapp, Stroon and Tante Elze. FVLCRVM comes up with a vocal percussive sound trip “Pink”. The beat gets straighter as Fallgrapp and Stroon brought some tech/trance approach to retro synths called “X-Type”. Cinematic wobbly half-tempo “Hit Me” by Jimmy and Fallgrapp comes one before last and the compilation concludes with soulful and slow “Daydreams” by long-term cooperators Jimmy Pé and Tante Elze.
This is the debut release of Möbius’s and Darsho’s collaboration project “M & D” featuring tracks, which where recorded betwen 2010 and 2013. This album is called “Night Sessions”, because all tracks were created during night time.
Released at the french netlabel Sirona records on 14-07-07.

TWG turns two today! And to celebrate, sleepytimejesse has offered up a highly emotional, broken ambient release teeming with atmosphere, dread and serenity.
Sounding almost like soundtrack to a giallo film crossed with a haunted tape deck, Goblin via Trent Reznor, sleepytimejesse carves out an 18 minute cascade sounding more like tonal poetry than anything else in the chiptune scene today. This release also does a good job of summarising TWG’s long-held mission statement: esoteric music full of emotion, the experimental and the affective glued together.
It’s hard to describe a piece of work that is as much felt as it is heard, so instead, celebrate our anniversary with us by turning off the lights and the music up: it’s definitely a journey worth taking.
Jonas Kocher: accordion
Gaudenz Badrutt: electronics
Having collaborated for many years now, Badrutt and Kocher play improvised music. Through this practice they explore the relation between the very electronic sounds of the accordion and the instrumental potential of the electronics.
There is no electronic processing of the accordion, more the opposite: the acoustic sounds tend to influence the machine, creating accidents and random behavior of the electronics.
Badrutt and Kocher also take care of the acoustic specificities of the spaces where they play, taking it as a fundamental element of the performance. Through this subtle tuning between the playing and the space, every sound performance becomes site specific.
The concert at Rex was the last of a small tour in the Balkan region. Hours of travelling around on bad roads with old albanian taxis and public buses, fastidious border crossings and concerts in very different venues: a quiet basement in Athens, an old industrial building in a no man’s land area in Tirana, a very small bar in the middle of a fancy bars area in Skopje and the beautiful old cinema REX in Belgrade.
Our music evolved quite a lot during the tour, the context as well as all the people we met and the places we stayed, having definitely an influence on our playing. This recording aims to document our practice in a specific context at a specific time. No concept before playing, no edits or re-composing after. It is just what it is, improvised music.
Linear Obsessiona lis delighted to present this unique new work by thecomposer and sound artist Iris Garrelfs-
“Bedroom Symphonies Bedroom Symphonies is an album of eight compositions made from voice practice sessions during a number of tours and residencies. So, imagine me sitting on a hotel bed, or friendâs sofa, laptop on the night table with a head microphone plugged straight into it and you wonât be too far from reality.
As the practice microphone wasnât exactly the best on the market and it was also used sans sound card, there is a certain raw feel to the sound. I have also tended to whack up the effects in places by way of compensation. That said I really like the way you can hear the materiality of the situation in the recordings, the quality of the equipment, my response to it, the occasional keyboard sound that creeps into a rhythm. The result is a rather curious, private set of pieces, performances entirely without an audience. Most pieces have somewhat mad stereo images – a fragmented counterpoint – best enjoyed with headphones.
Whilst the original recordings were made between 2005 and 2008, the album itself was created in 2014 from a series of shorter segments, without, however, any additional processing bar a few intros and endings. In the making I enjoyed internal references to Tracey Eminâs My Bed (1998), the infamous bedroom producer, and a gentle questioning of conceptions of liveness.
The booklet that comes with the download contains a selection of my photographs from the trips, and Brandon LaBelle has kindly contributed a text about my work, which you can find on page 33 of the brochure”

Consciousness creates patterns from chaos. She orders the reality to live. My algorithms extract information from the noise of the radio and transform, create patterns, melodies, colorful figures… I model these structures by altering the code (livecoding), improvising a physical journey to consciousness.
