For their second release the trio of Mark Browne (collected objects and saxophones), Daniel Thompson (acoustic guitar) and Richard Sanderson (melodeon and small instruments) continue their exploration of a particularly arcane form of free improvisation, creating music that varies from ritual-like percussive sound environments to microscopically intense interplay. Returning to the glorious acoustics of the Girl Guide hut in Aylesbury which produced their much praised first album, the trio dig deeper into their own utterly unique soundworld to create a music which is fascinating, recondite and very human.
Far Rainbow create vast neo-psychedelic slabs of gradually developing sound. “Somewhere Out There Was The Wave” is perhaps their darkest and purest release so far- a single expanding piece created from murky drones and loops and ominous percussion, the work has enormous dynamic control and intensity that sustains interest for its full duration.

Cialyn first arrived to great acclaim at Kahvi on the Christmas 2016 Various Artists compilation ‘Fields’. And now he’s back with a five track EP continuing the same amazing sounds we heard previously.
That defined Boards of Canada sound, popular among electronic music fans who prefer subtle, mind expanding, nostalgia, taking you to past days and moods. Featuring heavily, with gentle analog warm leads, detailed and precise beats and sentimental melodies.
Tracks like the title track ‘Off Season’ (and accompanying video which is featured on our Facebook page) make for a fantastic EP. Enjoy!
Downbeat is a project that mutates, changes with the time, transforms itself with life, without limits and without borders. Their second album takes the sound a step further towards experimentation. Downbeat look at their interior and connect themselves with genres they always got inspired from: Dub, Dubtronica, Jazz and Fusion.
“Introspección” is the beating of their heart, each heartbeat navigated by a different state of mind. Looking at oneself is like a magical journey within, guided by the mystical power of the ancestral plants.
The dub sounds are present throughout the album with atmospheric musical landscapes. This is not the typical dub album, trying to look like its coming out from an island … this is the dub of the mountain … the dub of the Andes … the dub of the Aconcagua … the dub of Las Heras. That’s why it’s hard, dark, cold and different. That is why it has power, hypnotism, strength and a sound of its own.
Let us navigate within ourselves, with the heart pulsating on each beat. Heavy Dub, experimental Dub, dedicated to the universe and its infinite power. A triangle for all to travel (SOUND-LIGHT-SHAPE)!
The silent world of night beholds the bearers of the slumbering animals. As most of them meditate collectively in alterative realities guided by deep thought, a few of us work the midnight oil till the dawn hour where by the rising Taurus believes all was a dream. Restless and weary, the hours after 4 am calls the end of our nightly duty. No one sees nor can relate to works of hands on the floors of reality as many forgets day’s past events in love, anger or neutrality. These streets empty, dark, and sometimes inhabitant by floating spirits conversing with cold sub zero winds, are gently painted in white light equally erased by deep darkness. Store front buildings undercover by this darkness are reveled by second floor apartment lights, assuring their vacantness to the world. Silhouettes in the windows, we can only hope there living. Silhouettes in the windows, living is our only hope
The Swiss duo consists of Andreas Glauser, an experimental artist and musician, who is running the Zürich based art production label brainhall, and music producer and synthesizer wizzard Roman Schürch who aside from his own music has produced numerous remixes for various projects such as Saalschutz, Egotronic, Sedlmeir or Karpartenhund.
The two musicians exclusively use analogue gear such as the Korg Monotribe and manipulated mixing boards to create their amazing and unique electronic sound textures and beat patterns.
It is a real pleasure for us to present this new album by Daniele Ciullini. An intense three tracks album features ambient sounds and industrial atmospheres, endless sonic rugs hanging in the fog that envelops the forgotten monuments of the title.
“Cemetery of the rusty ships”: playing the gap between the spaces of abandoned industrial ruins imagining the noise they were now lost in the mists of a rusty future already past.
The cosmic odyssey of “Empty Factories” is a hymn to industrial decline to the emptiness from its center emerges around degrading and wrapping everything in an infinite melancholy fog.
Something is moving in the “Frozen Abandoned Buildings” where the ice becomes static straight beat, dense implacable as a tribal rite from an ancient future.
Born in the late-1800s Monkey Warhol began making electronic music of various sorts, tones, and timbers in 1947. Inspired by Bob Dylan’s loud and abrasive “Metal Machine Music”, Monkey turned to music as a source of income after failed stints as both a zookeeper and dental hygienist. EP4 is HIS take on POP music (watch out Max Martin… there’s a new sheriff in town!).
“‘Organic’ is a word used in many situations; in this case it covers perfectly the bird’s eye description of this work. We can intuit in the first listening that improvisation and wisdom have met to create a record that lets you travel through the wide variety of sounds. We can let it flow and enjoy a fine work, which leads you to say, ‘uff, it’s over already’, and then give it another ‘play’. No doubt it is solid, but in a way that lets you breathe, it is not a block, it is solid as a cloud that has an important presence, but it is light and smooth.
Jorge Castro (aka Fisternni) is the host, recorded in La Cúpula, his bunker in Córdoba, accompanied here by two excellent artists, Bruno De Vincenti and Ramiro Cruz Larrain (aka Vlisa), essential components of the Argentine electronic scene and with an impressive history.
Without a doubt, this record is recommended; you have to sit in your armchairs and enjoy it again and again, because we never tire of seeing the clouds…”

For its 32nd release, Da ! Heard It Records introduces Voilé by Vicnet, a music to explore like an unknown space and inviting to seek out the hidden behind the visible, the unheard-of behind the audible.
What can freedom possibly look like in 2017, when everything and its opposite has already been tried, contradicted, canceled, and retried? Vincent Tordjman has asked himself this question many times, especially over the last few years. Since his last album (Mr. Hadopi, released in 2010 on Da ! Heard It Records), despite being busy with adult life, he has kept his passionate heart, and surrounded with three towers filled with machines, keyboards, and rare contraptions, he has not stopped recording, recording, again, always recording. Over seven years, he has evidently accumulated the equivalent of five albums. But too indecisive, too disappointed by the ever fluctuating state of the scene around him, he hasn’t finished anything, or almost nothing. He abandoned two or three skweee disks, an electronic jazz-rock disc, more acid house, as well as compilations of hand-tweaked music composed for the nocturnal electronica scene.
Yet finally, he finished Voilé, an album of a genre that doesn’t exist, without spite and without any other ambition than that to render the unique music that hides within it—and he might have been right to wait.
For the aptly named Voilé, which title matches the impossible-to-source visuals that adorn its sleeve, is so much more than just a new album by an all-too-rare artist that too few in this unjust world would still await. It is the personal diary of a musician too talented for his own good, who, in twelve very generous pieces, poured out all that is most personal, thus best and undoubtedly most beautiful, that his musician heart could produce.
The windfall for the listener is that it doesn’t look like anything. Yet while listening to Aladin, Princess, or Bamako, the listener’s head will not be lacking in images. From the theme of the imaginary film Idée de Question to the psychedelic explosion that is the title piece, historical references are not scarce either. But locking oneself into any which song with eyes closed is all that is needed in order to understand that one is dealing with a rare case of a record played, conceived, and operated with old synths, without resembling a museum visit. A windfall, we said. Or a senseless freedom concentrate.

Siberian cohesive post-industrial creative association POSEV presents the second compilation of tracks from its members and their sympathizers. All tracks are exclusive to this release and have never been presented before.
Our music is always the part of us, our personalities, and our lives. It describes the perception and exploration of the world. We make music because we have something to say and we must talk. We make music because we can’t but do it. Thus, our legacy is given to the world.
Our creation is a self-decrypting manifesto for ones who want to feel the other side of synthesizer music and look beyond the rhythm and sounds. We are too far from any scenes to imitate them. We’re too original to meet someone’s standards. We don’t do what others want to hear from us. We do what we want to hear ourselves.
