10 trax album – ogg 350 zip + mp3 320 + full stream
“Psykoxxx is Batard Tronique’s hard & dark drum’n’bass project.
His 3rd album on NKS shows us how his music is getting better and better. We can hear some old dnb vibes mixed with new style : heavier, darker, with more breaks inside. Enough variations in each track & from 1 track to another, not to be bored with repetition, as some can be with dnb. 3 trax made with his friend Z, 1 remixed by Porion, clean production as usual.
High level dnb free album for sure. Enjoy & share Deemon’s good vibes.”
Otto Psy [NKS International]
If you’re a follower of the Kahvi facebook page, you’ll know that we love this particular artist and the works of art they create. So I’m extremely happy to present the latest EP from the one and only Yimino!
If you’re a fan of Boards of Canada (if you aren’t why not?) then you’ll recognise some of the qualities from two of the tracks (Joseph and the title track). Sentimental atonal keys in the traditional Boards of Canada style, sweeping analogue warmth and melancholic feelings.
Check out Yiminos latest album Throwing Shade for more fantastic tracks on Bandcamp.
Track of choice has to be Baby BC3’s Ascent with its progression, curious choice of samples used for the percussion and subtle pads and epic bass.
Linear Obsessional is delighted to release this exciting collaboration between the great British maverick slide guitarist Mike Cooper and the Chinese Sheng virtuoso Yan-Chiu Leung.
“We had never met each other before this concert. We had exchanged a few mp3s to give each other an idea of what musical oceans we both float in and then attempted to navigate our way together by free improvisation toward some distant shore. I think we arrived at a beautiful island together finally. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Many special thanx to Yang Yeung, Alice Wong, Yuk Mui Law, Edwin Lo and to everyone who came on the Lamma Island soundwalk”
-Mike Cooper July 2013
Recorded January 26th at Youth Square Dance Studio by Anthony Yeung as part of the Around Sound Art Festival 2013 organized by Soundpocket.
Mike Cooper played an F1 Resophonic Tri-Plate guitar / Zoom Track Sampler / Kaos Pad / Boss Pitch Shifter-Delay pedal / Top Gear Fuzz Box and Harmonica.
Yan-Chiu Leung played a variety of Sheng ( a free reed Chinese wind instrument)
Samson Sounds is an up-coming outfit within the city of Glasgow. Incorporating musical elements from African highlife and blues, to Kwaito and steppas with a heavyweight dub base. The grooves played are tight, solid and never fail to bring warm happy vibes to any event.
A highly diverse group, the use of digital elements, gives them the ability to set up in limited spaces bringing live music to where only DJs have played before. It also allows soundsystem-heavy music to be played live at similar levels to those of a DJ with ease.
Originally started with a soundsystem, DJing and solo productions by Anders Samson the band began in earnest when, King Raja and Willie G joined, bringing trombone and guitar to the table. From here the sound really progressed. Willie’s rapid African plucking and Rajas melodic brass gave a much wider scope for the music pushing the boundaries out from the solely electronic into a fresh blend of live instruments and digital sounds. With the addition of singer Easy Oze in early 2012 the group had reached the fullness of today. Easy Oze’s sweet and sometimes deceptively high voice, cuts a path while also providing deep soul vocals to soothe it back over. This group will always bring style and smiles to any party, regardless of the crowd.

A remix in art often takes multiple perspectives upon the same theme. An artist takes an original work of art and adds their own take on the piece creating something completely different while still leaving traces of the original work. It is essentially a reworked abstraction of the original work while still holding remnants of the original piece while still letting the true meanings of the original piece shine through. Famous examples include the Marilyn prints of Andy Warhol (modifies colors and styles of one image), and The Weeping Woman by Pablo Picasso, (merges various angles of perspective into one view). Some of Picasso’s other famous paintings also incorporate parts of his life, such as his love affairs, into his paintings. For example, his painting Les Trois Danseuses, or The Three Dancers, is about a love triangle.

Experimented sound designer and ambient producer from Amsterdam, Albert Borkent, arrives as Lingua Lustra to Breathe with Violet, an ep of six original tunes under his particular style as creator of deep environments and interminable spaces.
Blessed with a devotion to dub and roots culture and politicised by the inequalities that haunt a world of plenty, Red Star Martyrs have arrived as the latest incarnation of musician and producer Stanley Wood. As a member of cult Birmingham reggae outfit Route 81, Stanley learnt his trade as a guitarist and gigging musician before becoming part of guerrilla graffiti specialists and urban raconteurs Echo Base. Here he encountered for the first time the mystical world of the recording studio and within it, the wonders of the Roland Space Echo – a love affair was born.
The romance bloomed with the arrival of affordable technology, enabling those that dared to dream the chance to create their own Channel One studio. The logical outcome for Stanley was Shotgun Rockers. From producing original dubs for the Dub Nation sound system, Shotgun Rockers became recording artists for Zip Dog, Nubian and Tanty records at the moment when a new breed of dub was being formed, introducing the energy of European dance music to inspiration from the legends of the Jamaican dub.
Fast forward to the now and Red Star Martyrs exist as an open collective where roots and dub artists from all over the world are invited to contribute and collaborate, bringing a message of love, unity and political consciousness. Oh yeah, and to have fun too, because roots dub music is what makes us all smile, right?
Their first EP includes two tracks, “Insurrection” & “Independence”, accompanied by the appropriate dubs for your personal recreation. “Insurrection” is a heavy stepper tune, followed by two exclusive mixes in one drop and breakbeat style. First appearance of Mrs Boo La La aka Bec Crispin on “Independence” spreading the rootical vibrations all the way.

A surge of sweeping waves evolving in spiral to create a deep, dark and unearthly feeling.
máquina solar is a duo consisting of amanda irarrázabal (b. santiago, chile) on double bass and vocals and wenchi lazo (b. buenos aires, argentina) on guitars and vocals. they have been playing on and off for two years recording their first album de escamas in january of 2013. the music they play is based on free improvisations of concise and varied time lengths resulting in sounds that resemble, at times, short compositions.
their first album, de escamas, is a collection of twenty brief improvisations that were improvised and recorded in santiago, chile in january of 2013. short. noisy. dramatic. scratchy. singy.

Jan Strach returns with a collection of songs gathered from his short lived “Out of Strach” project which presented each month a new short film, photos, a short story and two pieces of music. The songs were recorded between January and May and due to the time constraints JS had to go with the first inspiring thought that he got at the moment – whichgave some great and varied results. The opening track is based on the reversed melody of “Frere Jacques” but ends in a stoner feakout. There are atmospheric pieces about being followed by a woman driver and the death of dr Greene from the hit tv series “E.R.”; a tribute to Opel Astra over 5 different melodies in 3 different genres. Apparent are irregular rhythms and non-obvious melodies which JS has much love for, and equally much amateur passion and diy spirit, as always on the Underpolen netlabel.
“Eddie Huragan” is dedicated to mr Eddie Palmer of the tremendous The Fucked Up Beat, who fought the hurricane.

Influenced by Rococo playfulness, scuffing easyness and celebrating snap mood the joyous men of the Munich-based duo MOC bring their second album.
Who is reminded when listening to Magentaas hit album ‘Pulse’ on Phonocake, is not so wrong. Because of acting as Magentaa the musician Wolfgang Schmetterer has picked up the computer scene Champ Anatol Locker and dragged to stage, at this time especially in her home city, where they rock the stores that allow such a smooth sound.
Together, they first capture the world with their electronica-pop-house-band and then of course the space behind it, right after the blue sky on the left.
The music as expression of pure art sometimes expresses latents, lacerating and visceral moods. The Italian artist Desh Alb brings indelible marks of questions that have no answers , a persistent pain who have not peace at all costs having to accept a steep path where the mind does not find the light to be , to exist . The musical project entitled “Alla corte del Super Ego” (At the court of the Super Ego), drags sounds, words and shapes of six compositions to a world full of dynamic discontinuous where occasionally apparent glimmers of change seem to instill feelings of newfound clarity and then back down again once again in serious tones almost to sanction a kind of feeling of resignation and worsening . An artistic project with high thickness that tells a tragedy lived too closely, a daily defeat for that few of the human mind knowed and of that so much that the human knowledge unknowed and that it allows us amazed, lost and unarmed leaving only us the awareness of a weeping on a shoulder that can be also that of a guiltless and suffering mother for an ignoble destiny reserved to her. The musical project effective and deep is further enhanced by the contribution of a “reading” of some verses composed by Paolo Ferrarini and some samples in the original language from the movie “Dolores Claiborne” in the 1995 movie based on a book by Stephen King. Ingredients that defines and increases the texture and depth of this project.

To interpret is all in the eyes of the beholder. Different world views and opinions varies widely from individuals. All of us has our own unique sense of reality that we somehow like to share with the rest. Weather it’s good or bad, you and I compute the external environment to our own liking.
Keeping this in mind, “Interpretations” an album of collected dubed sound-scapes by Ionosonde’s resident artist Telegraphy, pushes the listener into outer space where a sterile environment is present to be used as a medium for sound interpretation. If it isn’t warm and bright for one person, it’s cold and dark for another. It’s all how you interpret it.
