The tracks of the Chord Memories e.p. are pendling between organic percussions, warm synthie and sizzling hihats it delivers a melancholic memory. Maybe to distract from rainy days, to wallow in thoughts. Pulsating and swirling chords rooted in summer ease combined with drums that force you to dance. The tapping beats of “Hold on” set the direction of the entire e.p. . Scapes shape up in a whirling manner, lightly swirl around that driving rhythm and let us hope for more. “Transformation” in no way inferior to the opener delivers technoid sounds, untamed, rough drums and a constantly changing synth line. “Cliché” and “At The Beach” stand out due to their drifting ease and a touch of discoish funk – especially melodical in “At The Beach”. The e.p. finishes with a great culmination: “Night Drive” which already prooved its clubability thanks to its warm house sound.
Anger will lead you nowhere, and you will realize that you’re still stuck at the very same point, unable to move on, unable to open up to new experiences. Being there will bring you nothing else but suffering indeed, especially when it comes to the wretched circle of experiences… On the other side, sometimes it’s useful to end up being completely isolated in order to re-examine beliefs and such. But when it comes to the being in the lockdown and carrying pain of something that was lost forever… you can hold on to this feeling if you like, but the better option is to realize that this never belonged to you in the first place. This is a beautiful opportunity to learn, and suffering will end inevitably when you finally get it.

ARSURA is the result of a collaboration between Air Protection Office and Servadio started in Berlin in the autumn 2014 during a jam session at Ekar records studio playing some diy machine and effects. The project reach the final shape one year later in London at Servadio/Thosebaddays studios with the support of Workinklassnoize.
Time for the second of the two part roots of IDM and electronica selection. First Analogue 100101 gave us some minimal techno as you’d have heard in the late 80s and early 90s, and now we welcome Jim Black back to Kahvi once again, with some superb early to late 90s inspired IDM and electronica.
Back in 1994 (for some reason this year sticks in my mind) I listened to a radio show from London called ‘The Outer Limits’ on Kiss FM. Always a great listen, showing ground breaking electronic tracks which crossed over from the rave to the more melodical electronic scene.
Jim Black is the master of early 90s sounding tracks – and here is a hand picked 10 track album (playing time just under an hour) of some really epic and amazing tracks that would have fitted right in, way back when.
Check out Digital for a real taste of 808 State-esque epicness, and Fifth Republic for a real speaker shaking bassline!
I’ve heard it all… “Why the hell did you come to this country? No one needs you here. Go back”. “Okay, maybe you deserve life here, but you don’t deserve love. You aren’t ready”. “I can be your friend and that’s what I can offer. A Facebook friend”. “You’re a nice addition to my news-feed, although I’m obviously not interested in you”. “You’re full of shit… I’m not letting you in, never. Take care of yourself”. No, it doesn’t work here like it’s used to work back in the higher dimensions. No. You’ve been sent here to act as a sponge for negativity. Taking in shit of others. No wonder you’d like to withdraw from the world completely. What does it offer you? Only pain. Suicide? Oh, yes, right… been there, done that. Many times. You know you can’t be destroyed. “Go back to your misery. Nice knowing you”. What are you going to do after de-cluttering? The only answer is stillness. Being completely still… Purification. Healing rain. Self-isolation, of course, but no more self-flagellation. And yes, the recording is rough. Very rough, and created mostly in a status of “illegal alien”, in 2013. Is it only me who’s seeing irony here big time? Do I really pass as an Earthling?
…most of the tracks were created using a fan heater, voice, tapping of my fingers and few field recordings, during wintertime. In a trailer.
-20 C temperature. Only one small heater… Still alive.
Winter is transient. Nature is eternal.
Emptiness is transient. Energy is eternal.
Suffering is transient. Love is eternal.
Your body and your presence here is transient.
You are eternal. And you know that already.
Remember that short story about Buddha and the bandit? You could feel mighty because you can wound and destroy, but the real mighty ones know how to create and to heal instead. Once you cut off the branch of a tree, you cannot put it back again. Once you’ve stabbed a heart of someone loyal to you, you can’t heal it, the damage is done. The heart will heal by itself, but the scars are to remain there forever. And this is a two-way road as well… I was really reluctant to release this album because it contains the last outbursts of anger and pain I felt during second half of 2014, before my awakening process had started. Concentrated anguish of the last glimpse… of the dark night of a soul. The last glimpse of the search “without”, the beginning of the search “within”. The penultimate chapter of the long night. 4AM and the healing rain pouring on the bleeding wounds of the tree, on the broken branches scattered on the soil around. The eleventh hour, my dear sand traveler… Time to make peace with the past. Let it go with love, for you can only invite the new in your life by detaching from the old. And the new branches will grow with time… for the morning is almost here. We have so much to exchange, my friend, but look beyond the horizon, beyond this veil of painful memories…
You see it now. Everything will be alright.

An album of soundscapes influenced by the way our political world is now showing the holes we all knew there before. Politicians being corrupt, not looking after or supporting their people but just out for their own gain.
The project is a CD which consists of recorded sounds inside the halls of the 2015 Venice Biennale. I worked on field recordings, altering things while trying to maintain a certain sense. I excluded the installations that had soundtracks, preferring those which were closer to the noise … The work is comprised of two tracks: the first track is made with the sounds of the pavilions in the Giardini, the second track with the sounds inside the environments of the Arsenale.
To take us up to Christmas 2015, something a little special. Two releases two celebrate the roots of IDM and electronica, that we enjoy listening to at Kahvi by all the fantastic artists released over the years. The first release is by guest artist ‘Anonymous3’ with his six track EP entitled ‘Analogue 100101’.
After listening to the EP for the first time, I was struck by how familiar the tracks sounded compared to those albums I listened to in the early 90s. Halycon could have featured heavily on DJ mixes of the time with its long drawn out pads and 808 percussion, where Breath is a tribute to acid house. Heliopause and Metamorphosis could have come straight out of pirate radio broadcasts direct from London in 1994.
Enjoy this blast from the past – and watch out for part 2 of this celebration of the roots of electronica in the next release!
USIT is the name of transcontinental duo consisting of Florida-based guitarist Jeff Duke and Sicily-based (and Sucumusic’s own) guitarist Gaetano Fontanazza.
“Jetlag Dreams” is their fourth release and the first one on Sucumusic.
The two guitar maestros are masters of electronic devices too and their music is a whirlpool where ambient, psychedelic visions and cosmic drones meet glitches and rhythms that add colours and dimensions to the whole. The working method adopted by Usit on their previous releases (“Approaching”, 2010 – “Reunion”, 2011 – “Somewhere in the Ocean of Night”, 2011) is live improvisation via Ninjam (an online protocol that allows musicians jamming together in realtime via the Internet), but for the present release each of the two men worked in their own homes, then sharing files and processing them. The result, as usual, is an astounding web of palette of sounds which flow in and out of categorization, thus pleasing and appeasing the senses of the listener.

Hello and welcome to the Underpopular hits compilation, the third of its kind!
This is the idea: everytime another 20 albums get released on the Underpolen Netlabel, the glorious father of the undernation, Jan Strach, lovingly selects one song from each release to compile into a presentation for all of mankind, to represent what Underpolen is all about.
And we are about freedom of creative expression, creativity with no boundaries, laughing in the face of genre divisions, we love slip-ups and false starts, accidental noises and experiments of all kind. Pixels, artifacts, blurs and smudges around the edges. Ballpoint marks, scratchmarks, fingerprints all over the lovely amateur, homemade creations.
And we would like to share all of it with you.
The lovingly murky, atmospheric rock of poj.wlkp, trapped in a world of eternal sunset;
The ever surprising imrpovised rock of Projekt Luty, where at all times there has to be at least one person included with no background in music whatsoever; ranging from noise and electronics, to casio backing psychedelic twisted soundscapes,
The mysterious, beautiful piano meanderings captured via dictaphone of Proyect? Moone Jazzers, a musician from western Europe who never told us who he was, sent us these lofi recordings and vanished;
The deconstruction of all that we know about rock music, straight from Deftechnixks;
The layered stream of consciousness synth loops amounting to a chillwave orgasmo from Everywhere Kingdom;
The many faces of Jan Strach, from goth rocker, through intricate meditations over an ocean, to casio melodies for children and full fledged electronified punk rock;
Noises and field-recording drones and collages of Secrets Of The 45, sometimes together with Romania’s Nava Spatiala;
Troglodisco of D.L.A.M.I.A.D., clashing ripped samples with a tact and style of a 12 year old deaf kid with elephant hands.
And as always three bonus tracks for your enjoyment because we love you dearly.
If you dig any of these artists in particular, there are links to their bandcamp accounts when you click on a track.

The Dub Vaders could be one of the best kept secrets of the Chilean electronic scene, offering a spectrum of precious tracks linking current and future urban beats, a deep legacy of Dub and some inclination to the dark side of things, that adds a flirty dose of evil to their music.
Herbs & Trips is a brief but resounding trip, where the first two tracks immerse us into an intoxicating cloud that serves as an instruction manual, preparing us for the closure of this magnificent EP, where they allow us to enjoy one of the best electronic tracks released in this part of the world during the current season.

When you can’t find the light within yourself, as you believe, you search for it in others instead, totally forgetting about yourself… no matter how ominous this situation sounds, eventually you find your way back, through growth and experience. To your own light within you…
#ambient #experimental #awakening
Sometimes your self-esteem is being lowered by others to the point of complete destruction of your ego, your protective shell. You feel small, worthless, insecure and profoundly hurt. But, pain is our greatest lesson in the end, because out of pain comes the most profound growth.
That’s why I’m thankful.
