A sinister vision of the future, described in apocalyptic poetry with menacing instrumentals as the background. A show of non-compromising authenticity, a mysterious musician with a unique vision, with a will to experiment and shock the listener on every curve.

Effluvia is proud to present another collaborative work with Laetitia Schteinberg of Ars Sonor. Her last release on my little netlabel of sheer, unquestioned brilliance was an epic joint effort between more than a dozen artists, and though only one of those fellow sound manipulators joins with Sonor here, it is no less epic, challenging, and empowering. Another wonderful industrial statement on art at large, Meklabor (dmitry Vlasov) is the one who joins. Originally appearing on Effluvia as Sunburzt, here he brings his colorful sonic abrasive rhythms that glitch, crackle, expand, and shatter the inner menagerie, and never before has the shattering glass of lovecrafted critters of glass so punch-packing. Four tracks where these rhythms echo through haunted dance floors and cemetery raves. A filter of psychonautic junkyard bliss that will surely get your blood pumping with synapse pleasing vibrations, though don’t get the vibe that these tracks aren’t still a challenge to the untrained ear. A Rorschach test of psychedelic catacombs that may tickle something less pleasant than the funny bone. All of this mixed perfectly with Ars Sonor. Broad, dense ambient tundras as far as the ears can hear, a distant blizzard screaming whispers of despair inside your dreaming head, yet with such ecstasy at the same time. This album, as masterfully conjured as anything I’ve heard of either of these musical savants, will sure digest well for your ears. Falling through corridors, fingers bleeding into the reeds, the volcanoes wait for the footsteps to ascend, loudly, with a rhythm your arachnid ears cannot ever hope to hear. Thank you very much for your lovely sounds Meklabor, and to Laetitia Schteinberg, I hope, we hope, that you are doing well!

Ano: 2012 (Elétrico Sonoro) e 2010 (Lx_CBR)
Notas: a faixa “Elétrico Sonoro” é o resultado de uma viagem de eléctrico desde a Graça até à Estrela, em Lisboa, na companhia de João Ricardo (ocp, Ponto, etc.).
A ambiência sonora deste secular meio de transporte lisboeta, desde a partida até à chegada, é o que se pode escutar nesta faixa, sem qualquer tipo de processamento ou manipulação; a faixa “LX-CBR” é uma composição sonora resultante de recolhas efetuadas nas cidades de Lisboa e Coimbra e originalmente concebida para a radiofutura, emissão especial da rádio Zero no festival Future Places, em 2010. Também neste faixa não houve qualquer tipo de processamento ou manipulação sonora.
Subterrestrial presents “Echotron” a unique mix of deep ambient soundscapes and retro lounge/exotica tracks featuring analog synths and drum machines. The tracks are arranged like an LP with the ambient material on “Side A” while “Side B” features the more beat-oriented tracks. Depending on your musical interests you’re bound to enjoy at least one side of this “virtual LP,” maybe both?
Though I had images of a portual town as Graham Greene visited on his travels, I doubted very much if ‘Port Saïd’ would have been the right title.
I also thought of ‘Cargo.’ I am surprised by the calmness of the piece, and a feeling of warm summer days. At some points it feels like walking through narrow winding streets.
Some of the tapes I used in this radio performance contained snippets of conversations, meetings, evenings with friends, all bringing back memories that lay dormant on one of the shelves of my subconsciousness. It was a pleasure to go there again.
‘Return’ was first played 18. january 2012 on the radio show ‘A Maïzing Session With…’ hosted by Anton Mobin in his apartment in Paris.
I used various cassette players and dictaphones, an effect pedal and a small box full of tapes.
Its rustling. Dripping. Playing. It makes zzz.
Moving in lines. Sounds are traveling. Hopefully melancholy.
It seems to be always the same persons, which are fighting in mind. Keeping Silence. A prospecting of Sound?
Views are floating, its still a Trial. Elusive.
A Saxophon tells us. And Trains. And a Piano… which could never decide!
If there is a possibility of listening waves beating? Or do they rythm the beat?
Misadventure of a Meaty Machine is Cherly Kacherly’s third release following “Drop a 4 Note Soundtrack” and the self titled debut EP.
like its predecessors it was also recorded at home, using a reluctant microphone and a text to speech software that was put in charge of the vocal parts.
This is the first album by Granjaescuela, previously published on Bandcamp and consists of 12 tracks. They admit the influence of bands like Hella or Lightning Bolt, but more funny. 16 minutes that will not leave you indifferent. Welcome to Granjaescuela!
Krasnoyarsk, Russia. That’s where this music comes from.
It feels like the other side of the planet. It’s close to Mongolia and Kazakhstan and no where near Moscow. Over there, three guys came together and created Eholow. Their sound (something in between intelligent dance music and post-rock) got picked up by Nu_Aura Netlabel. An interesting new label which combines music and illustrations for every track. Sure enough, this did get our attention and brought us to the two tracks presented to you today: niti and Нутации (nutazii).
They speak to me on an experimental unconventional level, but hey, don’t take my word for it… check it out!

From first to the last note “Orange and Black Cloud” fascinate the listner. This release is a “sound portal” toward futurist imaginary sceneries. Abstract and Sci-Fi atmospheres are pleasantly contagious. An Aos Crowley precious gift…maybe from the future…
“Seven mirrors” is the first ambient album by Nunun. With Massimo Discepoli playing synths and keyboards instead of drums, and Cesare Discepoli more electronically treated than usual guitar, in these seven improvisations the duo explores many different sonic textures and moods. Haunting melodies and weird dissonances, celestial soundscapes and earthy distortions, countless melodic fragments and free improvisations, this is music for both the intellect and the soul.
The album cover is an original work of italian painter Nascar; the album will be soon available in a special printed edition
Amazing things are happening in 2012. First, it’s winter and it’s cold. But above and to warm your ears, Fresh Poulp Records, Marée Bass and Propuls Akt propose to you a new Ep 100% dubstep, fat and bulky. An idea first initiated by Marée Bass and Propuls Akt where we find the title Bad Conqueror by the french producer PhoniAndFlore in his original version. This track is accompanied by five remixes, dark, and despite the common material, introspective. Among the artists are Vini Selecta, Uzul, N Tone, Yamoy and U.Stone (already with us on Dub Tentacles Vol.2).
Release shaped deeply personal musical exploration; the end result is recorded on this album. Using the new workflow and record sound base is tailored from carefully recorded outside shots elements, combined with a sound analogy, the sound that comes out of the primordial darkness, devoid of earthly laws, sound ribbed electronic shamanism with massive sound spaces filled with pulsating rhythmic waves. Album smooth and warm furnishings are still somewhat more ambiguous, leaving listeners a room to find theirs version of the journey through sinister and mysterious world of recorded sounds.
First breath of life for DubCombe Records comes from Hungarian producer DU3NORMAL and his Early Grey EP.
A cup of tea is a moment of break, relax and peaceful meditation; based on those concept DU3NORMAL has chosen the title of his first EP to represent the inner status of his mind while producing DUB.The release floats on heavy kick drum beats in accordance with the stepper British style for an EP that will make you sweat from the first note!
Hydra is the solo project by catalan artist Adrià Bofarull. Bofarull has been involved in various electroacoustic projects focusing its compositional approach on the idea of sampler. This L’Antimatèria its the third instalment on the series of releases focused on that very project.Before, Hydra has been released in Exp_Net netlabel (curated by good friend Javier Piñango) and self released as a CDr through good old Myspace platform.
the newest from pan y rosas is follow lonely roads by last king of poland, who describes it as a piece about alienation. using a vocal processor and a loop pedal, lkop transforms his voice and the feedback generated within the recording space into machine drone loops that give way to echo chamber chorus and lonely droid bird cries. throughout the piece satellites return from deep space in search of communion; pulsing swirls throb and fade; and low tone monastery ambiance counts the ebb and flow of breaths.
The infamous Titus XII returns with an EP full of rare cuts, outtakes and early tracks. From the dirty, distorted ‘Bitter Business’ to the chirpy hip hop shuffle of ‘Grundy’ and the Shakespearian ‘Suits of Woe’, Bardman Business is a strong introduction to the early work of this British producer. Well worth a listen, even if you haven’t checked out his full-length Planet Terror release Dig and Delve yet.
Massimo Ruberti is back to present again his work «Autour de la Lune» in the occasion of a short film (about twenty minutes, released once again by the netlabel Elpamusic), to tell the story of three astronauts and their journey to the Moon.
The small film consists of three video clips composed of static animation and shadow theater. The exciting sequences of images is perfectly accompanied by the music. The electronic sounds are taken from the record «Autour de la Lune» (Elpa57). The drawings are of the American artist David Brunell Brutman while the theater has been designed and animated by Massimo Ruberti. Everything is inspired by the homonymous book of Jules Verne ‘»Around the Moon», where three astronauts try to reach the moon, shot from a huge cannon aboard a bullet-shaped starship.
Evolution, Absorption’s first solo release with Faturenet Recordings showcases a master class in production and innovation.
When it comes to dark ambient and experimental music creation Absorption are true leaders in this genre and this intensely rich and inspiring experience should be held on to forever and shared beyond the stars.

Will be a long time with the release of 141,414 from the net label, album introduces the “Matriarch” of Between Cathedrals. Breakbeat / Electronica Between Cathedrals overflowing due to nostalgia, the music scene in 2012 continue the vagus, making it a wonderful thing to give them basic Tachikaera. Recommended!
Moving through the rubble, the carnage, the wreckage, the ruin, the dystopia, the effluvia, dwelling in an environment destroyed, among mutants with eyeballs dripping from sockets, the sun shines red and moves sporadic across the sky, so that no spiritual solace could be found a rhythm that cannot be found. There are those coughing on the harsh profaning smoke, yet proclaiming in noisy prayer that it’s all alright. Habits sending our species to an early grave, and we let it happen. There are many who don’t, who renounce these sporadic ways and invent God, they invent God by composing, by coming together and fighting for a just cause, by fasting in the woods, by loving one another unconditional, by ridding compulsion from their lives, from returning to the power of their dreams and the fruitful gifts of this world, and yet through such a damaged filter this can be incredibly difficult. So artists are met with many plights, which in nature’s continuum, extends in their art, their growth, their genetic mapping of emotion. Ars Sonor is a musician whose innermost thoughts trickle down every solid rock she erodes from the earth in the form of foreboding, empowering, tortured, loving pieces of music. Uncompromising and true, my respect for this artist would be difficult to exaggerate. The artist behind Ars Sonor, Laetitia Schteinberg, indeed has undergone many anxious and unpleasant feelings and experiences, which I will not delve into, but through her insistence of inventing this heavenly celestial body, a miracle has brought a triumphant work of pure poetry. Joined by over sixteen different artists, each collaborating with the galactic dream of Sonor’s genius in different tracks, what you have is a masterpiece of collaboration. Blessed with some of the most masterful soundscapers of the true underground, all tracks evoke something entirely different, so I won’t hop too deeply into praise (as much as I’d love to). What cannot go unsaid though, is that despite the versatility, seemingly endless, there is a special concentrated aura to this work as a whole. Put together, this record feels cohesive and articulate. All of the artists concerned, I thank you deeply. Thank you Production Unit Zero. Thank you Hal McGee. Thank you Zreen Toyz. Thank you B.Lone Engines. Thank you William Spivey. Thank you Ethnomite Pux. Thank you Meklabor. Thank you The Implicit Order. Thank you Takadatek. Thank you Amok III. Thank you Mystified. Thank you Roberto Lazzarino. Thank you 3bc. Thank you Peninsolar & Mark Moody. Thank you Consistency Nature. Thank you for your strengthening rhythms, your frozen and smoldering ambient dreams, your wonderful samples from inner alien planets, your wonderful new species of sound grazing tundras of beautiful neoclassical multidimensional trenches. Thank you for coming together and being the stroma of a divine presence. And thank you Ars Sonor, for giving a heart to this work of pure magic, giving a brain to this God amidst the rubble, the carnage, the wreckage, the ruin, the dystopia, the effluvia, of your life and the life of all those who have bodies to suffer with.

“When he wins a battle, the warrior celebrates. This victory has cost him anxious moments, nights racked with doubt, endless days of waiting. Since ancient times, celebrating a triumph has been part of the ritual of life itself: celebration is a rite of passage. His companions see the warrior of light’s joy and think: ‘Why is he doing that? He might be disappointed in his next battle. He might draw down on himself the wrath of his enemy.’ But the warrior knows why he is celebrating. He is savouring the best gift that victory can bring: confidence. He celebrates yesterday’s victory in order to gain more strength for tomorrow’s battle.” by Paulo Coelho
No-Source is excited to welcome Naked Polly to the roster. Naked Polly is the solo project of Oscar Granero from Madrid. His music focuses around acoustic guitar, piano, and voice, manifesting into some great mellow psych-folk. “A day in a night” is Naked Polly’s first full-length album. The songs are a-wash with reverb, sprouting flourishes of synths and wind instruments throughout. Percussion work is minimal or non-existent. This great use of minimalism really creates many great moments of an indie chamber pop sound. Oscar sights David Bowie, John Lennon, and Syd Barret as some as his influence. They definitely show through from time to time. It’s still a unique and refreshing album even with these popular influences. Enjoy a day in a night.
Tom Stokes returns with another Sekotis album on No-Source. “Picture puzzle pattern door” further melds the worlds of IDM and Post Rock. The track “Rivers & Mountains” sparks the album into existence with very little electronics. The piece is comprised almost entirely of cleverly layered guitar work. The second track, “The suns that teach the sky to dance” juxtaposes playful electronic melodies with distorted glitch beats. Definitely a nod to Aphex Twin. “Freedoms eroded” is the first track on the album that really mixes everything together into something that can only be described as Post Rock IDM. A sampled voice shouts “I will make you understand” as Sekotis presents his distinct sound. “Eldhraun”, the final track on the album, is over ten minutes of slow burning goodness. Drones, percussive melodies, and shimmering synths ebb and flow into an aural bliss.. Vocal on tracks 2 & 4 by Lucy Nickholds. Design & art by Mike Kram.
