Night. A small but beautiful window of exclusive light, the last active window in a dark city, showing the attic of a poor but genius inventor, playing piano, while the transmitters send out the frequencies via fm radio, masked informations of future Wu Wei resistance.
Some of you will already know [mikra]’s releases from the netlabel world. If not please await a full length sample piano synth mashup collage album creation of hope, deconstruction, light and shadows. Slightly spooky at some points, but the musical n electronica love lets you keep touch to the air.
A huge guy with heavy glasses and a drop tuned electric guitar, a woman 10 feet tall, computer beats and synth basses. Post industrial beats, stoner bass loops, metal riffs and german lyrics. Guitars cannot be to loud, drum patterns never to stoical, bass licks never to dark, lyrics never to sealed.
„Their songs are precise, concise in the best sense, and in use of the sometimes minimalistic means highly effective. And damn powerful. Even if their message is disenchanting, their sound gives pleasure“ (Felix Klopotek, Stadtrevue Cologne magazine 4/2013)
Dark Detroit techno with very heavy dubed soundscapes gives this album a place in the underground music scene. Telegraphy once again, delivers yet another minimal dubed techno sound that is a far cry from his signature sound.
After recovering from Tomorrow’s Harvest (the delightful new album that is a joy to behold from Boards of Canada) Kahvi has a new guest artist in town – Caroline Jago is some new and fresh ambient talent that approached Kahvi recently, and after listening to the demo I was impressed by the depth and feel of the tracks.
Seven tracks of ambient bliss in ‘Spectral Adumbrations’ await you, from the random-beginning Hope that leads onto an addictive composition of epic proportions to the delicate choir driven track Agnus Dei.
Formulating an ever increasing wall of sound in Submergence, Caroline shows us that there is life after BOC, if not in the same genre, then definately in a similar feel good vibe
After long three years from the extraordinary album “Out of sound/Out of silence” released by La bèl in June 2010, Menion returns with an exciting new album. Ten tracks where the sophisticated electronica and the lively rhythmics of the sardinian artist cross the emotional notes of his guitar.
Louisiana-born producer Brandon Goree marries meticulous drum work with artful blends
of synths and samples. He delivers a sound that is rooted in hip-hop, but fearless in its
experimentation. Goree’s works are the children of an obsessive work-ethic. The art
shadows his soul.

philip corner’s second album for pan y rosas, java improvs, is a box set that collects eight improvisations that were recorded over the course of a year during his travels in indonesia. from philip:
Surely what drew me to Indonesia was the gamelan. A connection through years of practice with the New York new-music group “Son Of Lion.” And there I met three marvelous musicians and played with them, drawn together by shared mind-in-the-moment music making – the only way it becomes an “universal language.”
the collection is divided into three boxes and contains six and a half hours of music. the first box consists of two separate performances with percussionist yasudah s. and the dancers susana miranti kroeber and phoebe neville. the second box consists of four performances with the singer and dancer restu kusumaningrum. the third box consists of two performances with the percussionist jalu pratidina and dancer phoebe neville.
Marco Cervellin, the force behind Wacky Southern Current, returns with his third album on No-Source. Argonautica continues the trend of high quality instrumental albums from Marco. To give Wacky Southern Current one genre is to sell the music short. A wide range of influences fill up each release from Marco. Argonautica is no exception. This is a more guitar-centric album with Kraut influences, particularly on the track “We Are Argonauts.” “French Radio” is a short burst of experimental soundscape, while “Blues in A” is an excellent seven minute jazz workout. Wacky Southern Current heads is new directions with such musicianship that it’s hard to believe they haven’t been there all along. Argonautica is: Marco Cervellin – guitars, bass, keyboards. Gianni “Ian” Garbo – guitars. Giacomo Gatti – drums.

This is a recording of a performance at the Barents Spektakel Festival in Kirkines, at the top of Norway in the Arctic circle February 2013.

This Space Occupied (by Maida) was originally commissioned by the Washington Project for the Arts for a 5-hour endurance performance in an elevated glass cage at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC fall of 2012. It is an interactive performance of structured improvisation, stream of consciousness choices by Maida Withers as performer and dancer, and Steve Hilmy as musician and composer, that reveal the precariousness of life in the glass cage. The 5-hour endurance event was inspired by notions of the Occupy movement. Portions of Maida’s text are fragments of poetry of David McAleavey who is a professor of literature and creative writing at George Washington University, and Alex Caldiero a poet, polyartist, sonosopher, and scholar of humanities and intermedia and a professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Utah Valley State College.
In this recorded performance Maida Withers wears a headset mic and Steve Hilmy processes her speech and movement while performing on keyboard, computer, and miscellaneous controllers, making all sonic decisions in the moment.

From the vast area of Siberia/Russia, a new dub sound is created. Kirill aka Dub-i has been composing and recording electronic music for the last 5 years, keeping his productions hidden from the mainstream. Inspired by the Rastafarian movement, he dares to combine the roots/reggae dub with the modern sounds of his environment, creating irie soundcsapes, pushing the dub as we know, it into new unexplored areas.
Dubophonic is proud to to have Dub-I’s “Creation” as the first release on the netlabel. The name of his album symbolizes not only the birth of our new netlabel, but also the birth of a new sound. His album “Creation”, released only in digital format, aims to lead all sound-travelers to adventurous dub journeys of experimental ambiance. Dub-I’s special vision on dub music is to fill the heart of each and every one of us with with love and peace, through the earthly vibrations and the deep musicality of his tracks.
The ten tracks, of which four are just over two minutes long, are different than the conventional style of dub, as we know it today. Nevertheless we should be proud of his musical innovations, since dub is all about experimenting.
