Nostress Netlabel proudly presents “Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1”, the new album by Massimo Ruberti, from Livorno (Italy). An artist who likes to call himself “trafficker of sounds and images” now considered one of the label’s flagship artists. The album will be released exclusively for the upcoming second edition of the Netlabel Day, a considerable important event organized by the Chilean netlabel M.I.S.T. which will take place July 14 and involving Netlabels from around the world. Will take place at the endless web areas and there will be a collective exchange of unreleased and original music, that will bring enrichment in the archives of all those who participate in this beautiful and important initiative. Massimo Ruberti will bring high the banner of Nostress Netlabel with the publication of the first part of an EP extremely complex and sophisticated, that catapults the listener into distant and forgotten times. A work that requires careful listening and that will see the closure of a circle as soon as possible, through the publication of the second part. “Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1” it’s an album in warm and elegant sounds, scratching the heart and soul of the listener. A work that runs through wilderness, unexplored and never trodden by human. Through listening we find ourselves in a desert devoid of its characteristic and constant wind, driving on non-existent paths, you suddenly find yourself in an oasis where the perspective changes and even the sand seems to take on the color of the sky and thirst suddenly becomes the ‘ last of the primary needs. The Sax caressing soft carpets of Synth, nocturnal atmospheres through the time gap that separates the vintage from the traditional electronic sound. Four songs that lead the listener to dive into the wonderful atmosphere created by Ruberti, starting from the cover depicting a Vedic text 5000 years ago to the intoxicating beauty of sound that will, without a doubt, to a new relistening of the album.
Yan Terrien comes back with this second release on Sucu Music talking about the suspended atmosphere of hospital corridors.
Music For Corridors magnificently renders that sense of waiting. Each track infact shows the multifaceted aspects of a waiting in a hospital corridor, whether it is you waiting for your own fate or one of your loved ones is.
A waiting which sometime is trustful, powerless, serene, hopeless, heroic, hopeful. It’s a music that’s plenty of intense feeling and emotion, it’s a music that empowers the listener to understand further dimensions starting from lucidly observating details, common objects, views, as the songs’ titles suggest.
The album is mainly piano based, melody and harmony of each track develops accompained with light synths sounds and textures, quirky noises and low distant voices. The sensation is just like if our thoughts were focused on their own, barely distracted by what comes around.
We’re very happy to present a release of a great artist like Yan Terrien for the Netlabel Day 2016 special event, wishing him to present us more and more music in the future.

“Clouds Formations” is a concept release coming from the brazilian brilliant musician and guitarist Marcel Rocha. The artist, with his fine guitar mastery, explores that enchanted part of the sky where clouds form, giving body to our visions and emotions. It is a rich sonic journey through the amazing world of “haze and vapours” that flows onward, everchanging like clouds drawing in the sky on and on and on… From sparse melodies to harmonic atmospheres, from spontaneous phrases to complex notes mazes, Marcel leads us by the hand into his personal multiform land.
Sucu Music’s 2016 begins with the third release by Cousin Silas, whose trademark guitar-laden form of ambient and soundscapes is here to delight our ears and souls alike. The overall tone of “A Moment Lost” – this is the title of the new album – is less somber than in the previous works, and, apart from the closing track, the not-too-long playing time of the tracks allows the listener to sort of breathe between one aerial trip and another.
After having told of cities without sun, at night, when smog vanishes, one’s gaze is searching again for a corner of nocturnal skies, it searchs stars and planets where the mind can project itself, where it could still transcend.
Looking again at the Moon, and dreaming of sidereal trips, how not to think about Apollo 11’s contentious challenge, about Neil Armstrong and companions., about their long round journey to the satellite, and back, and above all about their trip ‘inside’, conquering their inner space , as J G Ballard would say?
That’s Armstrong, a six-acts trip, six scores to get lost, a music aimed for motionless travellers.
