«Миллиарды лет» is an experimental
album by the band «Чокнутый Пропеллер». It was recorded to celebrate band’s ninth anniversary.
You won’t find any tracks like «Люди против ментов» or «We Wanna Rock», however there are many love songs. Electric guitars were replaced by acoustic, punk rock was replaced by country or Americana. In fact that sounds more like a radio-friendly record, but it’s important to notice that not many bands in Russia are able to record such music in their native language.

Italian electronic music composer, Daniele Ciullini, is back to EdP – Editora do Porto with a full album of “remains”.
In this thought provoking work you’ll find the vestiges of a plausible life story, left in the open, to the winds…
Kahvi welcomes guest artist Weedie with a six track ep entitled ‘Tep Sava Galvos’ (meaning Between my head in Lithuanian).
Slightly underground and less mainstream than the last release from Tetarise, Weedie looks towards the minimal and eccentric side of electronic music with subtle beats and melodies, yet nice analog sounds such as the basses on Ego Cogito Cogitatum.
Influences are obviously artists such as Autechre and perhaps a hint of Arovane, and even some Solar Fields, which makes for an interesting listening experience to many a Kahvi fan.
Track of choice for me would be Cukrus Chalvai Atrodo Originaliai Saldus (in English Sugar seems to halva originally sweet) with its mellow groove and nice sounds. The last non-English trackname is Eik ir motyvuokis which means Go and motivate (yourself)
Jean-Luc Guionnet: saxophone
Jean-Luc Guionnet: « My musical work subdivides itself into as many ways as occasions arise for me to think and act with sound. Those occasions have always to do with a strong meeting with an outside element: an instrument (saxophone/organ), a theoretical idea (what is « rumour »?), and mainly a collaborating friend (André Almuro, Éric Cordier, Éric La Casa, Lotus Edde Khouri … Seijiro Murayama) … There then follows a collection of themes which, in turn, influence the evolution of the musical work and define the direction of meetings to come: the thickness of the air, the pidgin (language with neither grammar nor vocabulary), the musical instrument considered as affective automaton, listening dark unto itself, the algebra of and in hearing, sound as a signature of space, signature of objects, signature of what it is not… the fact that French uses the same word – le temps – for time and weather, propagation and spread of forms in time etc. Music is, then, a way to test reality.
Conversely, it’s a test whose experience defines a new distribution of the whole body by artificially localizing it in an unknown and purely physical environment, all the while being able to think, count, make relations or understand places, and so forth. The emotion I look for in music is made out of all these strata and the sliding of one over the other during the act of listening »
d’incise, electroacoustic musician, doing both composed and improvised works. He focuses mainly on generation and manipulation of acoustic sound sources and objects, loves feedbacks and digital glitches as well. He tends to extract the most tiny details of the elements, appreciates slowness and obsessive explorations of simple processes. He coordinates the Insub. label and the Insub Meta Orchestra with Cyril Bondi, with whom he also have the Diatribes duo.
Manb is here and is ready to twist the laws of phisics as he decided to build his “particle decelerator” in Sucu Music territory. He takes samples, glitches and noises, stirs everything in his subatomic blender, and the result is a beautiful and obviously juicy cocktail.
(It should be noted that “Particle decelerator” sees the light as a video album, and for this reason it should preferably first be seen before being heard.)
“I think this album includes not only experiments with waves and rhythms, but also emotions… Emotions of an urbanite who’s always in a hurry, always running somewhere without understanding where… New adventures are waiting for you, be ready to enjoy them.” – Sacha Rush
far away glimmer in the distance,
surprised by emerging times.
With a rework of a jazz song as well as with an ambient, a 4-to-the-floor and a DnB track Blackberry crosses various stages of his creative musical work of the last year. In well known high sound quality longing sounds weave far and crunchy field recordings, bells, clocks, sea water, all is in. The time is running, good music accompanies us.

“Enkang” means in the Maasai language “homestead” .Maasai is one of the very few tribes who have retained most of their traditions, lifestyle and lore. “Enkang” is also the name of DubRaJah’s EP, which was recorded in the period from Autumn 2013 till Summer/Autumn 2014 in Arusha (Tanzania), Stone Town (Zanzibar, Tanzania), Wete (Pemba, Tanzania) and Moscow (Russia). DubRaJah fuses a deep digital dub style with organic sounds, traditional African melodies and chants from the people of Maasai, Datooga, Hadza, Pemba and Zanzibar, incorporating also samples of Mad Professor on “Eyasi Dub” and “Zanzibar Dub”. Each track has is own magic, from the ritual chants in “Laibon” to the mystical beauty of the “Ngezi” forest, cleansing the body, the mind and the soul.
VKRS Netlabel Present Marco Mestichella – Mixtape
London based artist originally from Italy, producing original music since 2011, fusing hints of Downtempo/Trip Hop with Retro-Pop and Cinematic sounds.
“Three timeless compositions that come in a idiosyncratic low fidelity fashion, utilizing glitchy resonant delays and general midi sound aesthetics as sonic carriers for TRANS ATLANTIC RAGE´s visions of an avant jazz concept album.”- Lo-Fi/Sci-Fi
