A few months after the lovely P8 phase 3, our regular contributor Doedelzak comes back with another longform composition using an hybrid methodology and taking inspiration from various musical aesthetics. Ilpyd is subtle and catchy, hypnotic and surprising in the same time.
Notes by the artist
“Ilypd was created partially through algorithms, with a slow and alsmot imperceptible evolution. Though, there is a big change between the beginning and the end.
Although there are small internal changes, the evolution of the global structure is strictly continuous. The perception of changes (and notably the perception of acceleration) may appear intermittently as if on particular moments the listener’s mind was suddenly creating the image of a new step being crossed, but ilypd is perpetually changing.
Ilypd can be listened in one go, or on the contraty intermittently. It is not necessary to hear it from the beginning, nor until the end.
Inspiration for this work came from traditional African music, Gamelan, and Steve Reich. This is a musical material more than a composition – and I simply wanted to make this material beautiful”
En décembre 2017 nous avons enregistré, lors d’une session live, les dernières pièces instrumentales de Tintamare.
À cette date, l’idée était de faire une petite pré-prod pour un futur album. N’ayant point l’idée que le projet s’acheminerait vers une fin si proche, nous offrons aujourd’hui ces enregistrements, sous la forme d’un E.P. conclusif très Lo-Fi, très cru et très instrumental.
Voici donc les toutes dernières compositions de Tintamare afin qu’elles fassent aussi parties de la discographie.Merci pour le support et toutes les années. À tous et à toutes.

The largely successful, Scape From Reality EP by Code Therapy, is back with vengeance, reconstructed by some new and old members from the Digital Diamonds family. Part one of the dualistic remix series is the more psychedelic of the two. Gelled by the inimitable stems from the original EP it contains god-like pads, elevating melodies and flawless sound design. These 4 tracks by Ozka, Adamson, Trilingo and Nicorus are undoubtedly calculated for pure dance floor pleasure with their full-bodied sound and hard-hitting grooves. Believe it or not they will reshape your reality.

Say Hello to synth electronica artist Mikk Rebane from Tallinn, Estonia,
presenting his newest album here at Phonocake.His music is softly depressing and mildly pushing at the same time,
kind of an athletic and powerful melancholy.
An electrifying poetic view on life.
Third round of our new interview series also brings a little insight
on Mikk Rebanes life and music.
Sai, the dedicated studio project of Yasen Penchev, has been evolving a lot throughout the years, including since his debut album “Perspective seen from different point of view” was released in the summer of 2016, but the core of the project remains in experimentation with analogue and digital recording techniques and extensive use of various string instruments, with results varying from minimalistic ambient atmospheres and melancholic soundscapes to furious polyrhythmic drum patterns syncopated with loads of guitars and progressive rhythmic and melodic structures, music that has usually been fitted under Post rock, Math rock, Ambient and Trip rock and such.
3 years after releasing his outstanding debut Mahorka proudly presents “Random motion of particles”, Sai’s second masterpiece for the label and a notable milestone in the project’s evolution. Keeping the polymetric and polyrhytmic structural approaches and unique sound production techniques, he further extends and builds upon, this time less processed, even clean, guitars, less distortion, more melodic and harmonic compositions, more cinematic and atmospheric overall feeling with more and lusher ambient passages that include even whole tracks on their own.
“Random motion of particles” comes as free (cc) digital download and a precious limited edition (50 pcs) cassette release with outstanding design by Angel Draganov and Yasen Penchev himself. The tape has a different version of the album where the tracks have been redone in different edits and fused together by the artist for two side-long (30 minutes each) trips.
All music produced and recorded by: Yasen Penchev

Produced and recorded between 2008 and 2019, “II” is Himalayha’s latest EP. A result of a simple and direct production. Himalayha’s music does not escape its cinematic essence, using piano, strings, minimal electronic and field recordings captured from various environments. “II” is a soundwalk accompanied by emotion, a contained but still soothing inner search. There is darkness, but there is also light.
The project has existed since 2014. Located in Moscow, Russia.
Concerning the name of the project: in Spanish, “que” means “what” or “what,” so the name can be considered as the question “what to fear?”. In Russian, the word pronounced “kefir” (or “kephir” – a fermented milk drink).
I’m interested in experimenting with sound. I like to combine different noises and strange samples, effects. I love to improvise.
I use a variety of tools, from traditional to homemade. MS-20 Mini, Kaossilator and Kaoss Pad, the Mopho Keyboard, LYRA, casio sk-8. In addition to them, I use different percussion, tambourines. I impose noise and sounds recorded on the telephone recorder. Sometimes I add my poetry and lyrics.
The result is a kind of collage, a mixture of sounds and noises.
“Melting Clinamen” was born from a small deviation from the methodology used by Failure Circle in this serie of compositions Frozen Clinamen that normally uses only sounds recorded while no human intervention is applied to the used set-up ( no-input mixer most of the time). The creation of the first track of this album followed the same rules – except that it used a recording that features some little changes created manually (this sound can be heard between 3min11 et 12m06). This is also the first release in which Failure Circle doesn’t use a no-input mixer but a semi-modular analog synthesizer, the Neutron by Behringer, with no effects except its built-in ones. Another notable difference with the past volumes lies into the way the material has been edited & mixed. The other track of the album (Frozen Clinamen #2M) follows more strictly the Frozen Clinamen methodology, but all sounds were also created with synthesizer. Thus, Melting Clinamen is and isn’t part of the Frozen Clinamen serie.
Methodology of the Frozen Clinamen serie
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.
