Despite Strato Dischi Notlabel has currently no facility, we do not miss our monthly appointment with Riddim To Riddim.
This is the month of Unity Riddim, in this historical moment that instead brings to light division and social fragmentation.
The first interpretation is Ras Moray. A new mix of this song from his album Out of City and closely linked to the Youth Art Center, a project that the Kenyan artist is funding with its sales.
Following, Shiny D, again with us this time with an organ performance that bears witness to his skills and his deep knowledge of the genre.
Jobba’s vocal track is a new mix of the 7 ” published by Real Rock at the end of 2015 and inspired by the Voice Of The People Sound System’s experience.
The more purely “neurological” version is dominated by the solo guitar of Matteo Minetti, always guitarist and one of the founders of the roman dub collective
Torque EP is the Pueblo Nuevo debut of the Chilean duo Guerra & Rammsy (Álvaro Guerra and Rodrigo Rammsy), renowned musicians and producers from the Santiago rock and electronica scene.
In a little more than 20 minutes and three tracks they take us on a danceable tour with a clear timbral influence in the rhythmic base of a more “classic” cut, this in the still young universe of electronic music, but to advance the disc leaves everything gradually entering a kind of sound tunnel, with some solid bass lines that seem carried from the underworld, to these they add, in a very subtle way, perplexing “pads” and arpeggios that enrich the harmonic palette, carrying us to risky sound moments, which arrive (commonly) to be distant to the style. And I think that’s what I like about Torque EP: that impression that seems at first like everything will go as it should be, but very subtly, without abusing typical resources such as excessive “reverbs” or “delays”, they go placing you in this sound maze and they leave you without an exit, unless you realize and unless you stop dancing.
Very good disc of Guerra & Rammsy, to go losing yourself dancing, without fear.
This abstract electronic release comes out from the mental volcano of the young italian producer Edoardo Costa, who puts in the “Whynolf” project his crazy sonic soliloquies. The album traces an ideal line between his noise and distortion era and a “more musical” approach. Don’t you have any expectation of melodies or anything of what you’re used to calling “song” here, you will rather be hit by a mass of sounds and frequencies punched, pinched, stretched, morphed like clay in the hands of a schizoid sculptor. It’s pure electronic experimentation pushed to the limits.
“Clouds Formations” is a concept release coming from the brazilian brilliant musician and guitarist Marcel Rocha. The artist, with his fine guitar mastery, explores that enchanted part of the sky where clouds form, giving body to our visions and emotions. It is a rich sonic journey through the amazing world of “haze and vapours” that flows onward, everchanging like clouds drawing in the sky on and on and on… From sparse melodies to harmonic atmospheres, from spontaneous phrases to complex notes mazes, Marcel leads us by the hand into his personal multiform land.
Moving from place to place without a fixed plan; roaming.
An aimless roving about; leisurely traveling from place to place.
Disordered thoughts or utterances; incoherencies.
A series of dreamscapes, tone poems, imagined film scores or soundtracks to day dreams.

NEW RELEASE on PLUS TIMBRE
Daniel Barbiero & Chris Lynn | Doubting All Things Aligned

Daniel Barbiero: Double bass; prepared double bass (2, 4); analogue synthesizer app (5); virtual duet (9).
Contact is the fourth full-length album under the monicker Thuoom, created between April and July 2014. All of the sounds have been sampled using a contact microphone. The use of mainly short samples lead to a creation of what is likely the most rhythmically oriented Thuoom album so far.
Instruments used on this record: acoustic guitar, coin, contact mic, elevator, faucet, kettles, table, toy piano
Kaiut is the third full-length Thuuooom album, representing the more ambient side of Tuomo. These songs were created in January and February 2014 but many of the samples date to 2013. This album is the first time Tuomo started a session with the intention to create an ambient album. Consequently, the album features longer tracks than usual for Tuomo, the combined length of these 6 tracks clocking over one hour.
Instruments used on this record: acoustic guitar, bed, glitches, music box, plastic bags, wine glasses
“I’ve been listening to this song for a long time, thanks to a compilation my mom owns in CD, and it has always fascinated me for expressing so well feelings of isolation, longing and bewilderment, although with some kind of hope. Whenever I find myself surrounded by those feelings, it always comes to my mind. This time it came to my voice, by choice and by necessity.” Cairo Braga, musician
“The city is an entanglement of grayscale. The colourful boy is no more than a dimmed shadow blending to the bleakness of the concrete and of the hearts he finds. Solitude is palpable, even though there are signs of life amidst the neon light billboards. Where could be all those who promised love, hope, company? Nobody told him how hard it was to grow living in a brotherhood that exists in name only.” Marco Magoga, illustrator
written by Oscar Brown Jr.
produced by Cairo Braga.

My final release from N3rgul in 2016, till a brief hiatus, and a mixture of downtempo beats, dubstep, glitch music, some experimental songs, some shitty songs with no rhythm or melody whatsoever, and above all else, some drum and bass and various clips from pop media sources and vocal interviews. Consider it pure chaos, and a sampling of the internet itself in a melodic attempt at musical intrigue.
Curious Inversions returns to Kahvi with a new eleven track album called ‘Stone on Stone’. Back with his usual swirling arpeggios and Tangerine-Dream-meets-Lackluster feel, this is the perfect accompaniment to those spring showers and long summer afternoons.
After an incredibly amazing debut EP called “Lamer”, Arce comes back with another EP called “Radar”. It’s slightly different than his first minialbum, but we liked this a lot and we hope you’ll like it too. In fact, we know you’ll love this, but… Well… You know…
On “Whispering” netlabel released album “A Brief History Of Life” by composer Maxim Kornyshev. In the album is six light and emotional tracks in the New Age style.
