This time around, the VA Christmas release is a more chilled out selection of tracks is mostly ambient or chill, with a couple of more beat driven tracks mixed in for good measure.
Mainly unreleased artists have been showcased this time around, with a few regulars (4T Thieves, Rephazer, Faex Optim) appearing and a lot of up and coming talent which may appear on Kahvi in the future. Designed to let you drift into your thoughts, imagining distant unknown places beyond the stars.
It’s the end of the year and as always we want to present something special to you.
SK’P is back with his detailed and clean sound compositions which already fascinate us, make us dream and forget the time. Better still, he brought a mutual friend with him this time. We knew the whole time that they fit together perfectly, but now we can experience how the completion of this connection finally takes place. We’re obviously talking about the ever more productive GESO, who in between his always fantastic visual appearances thought of something special for us and lets us immerse ourselves in some completely symmetrical 360º videos, interspersed with complicated details that we want to and can explore again and again – with a completely subjective perception and always different.
You know Sk’p and his precise micro cuts, squeaky clean beat works and joyful synth works. Put these two in a mixer and you have another fine release with infinite replay value that invites you to think about our prejudices about paradise, distant futures and multiple ways that we wish they hadn’t taken.
Here you can find the portfolio with all the 360 VR videos:
Ayato & Naoki Ishida have been working together via file exchange since the early 2010s. 3 years after their album “Red_control rec.played” , they offer us a split album recorded between 2015 and 2016 : Tapes Outtakes. Here, as the title suggests, the 2 artists have both worked with magnetic tapes. Ayato has used an old Revox reel-to-reel tape player to create evolving loops of various instruments, while Naoki Ishida has used other (undisclosed) methods and material. Two ways to use the tape as an instrument and tool for experimental composition.
Starfoods Chips, Serenata candybars, Tornado laundy detergent and Polish Polonez 1.5 car – first brands and first commercials that haunt my meoeries of late 80s and early 90s in Poland, glued to a screen of OTAKE TV set. The first whiff of imperialism, sudden flurry of colors and sounds and…Luksus! (Luxury). And out of nowhere, there is an ASSORTMENT of GOODS everywhere. For you, ladies and gentlemen, samples of memories cut out of memories – rhythmical tunes constructed of nothing else but beats, riffs, stabs and exclamations cut out from Polish tv commercials from transformational period – the sounds of Luksus.
Pistol jazz is an instrumental band(violence, beauty, and own vision) who expresses the energy of life with avant-garde music.

Winter is coming slowly. The sorrow penetrates through the window of a house lit by a faint sun. The bells ring out far. A woman sings her dreams of escape, while a man turns around a square seeking for his desappeared love. The snow fall down insistently. Voices chant litany to celebrate the end of life. noises interfere with the rarefied melodies of a piano that tries to draw landscapes of purity. With the cold, innocence seems to have to die. Yet in a courtyard, the children resist winter by playing under the cold eyes of adults, and here and there, little birds survive in the snow.

New perspective of things can be found by raising ourselves. From a terrace, a peak or imaginary places we seek contemplation as it is our creative nutrient. Unsettling times must be confronted on the sidewalk of music production. As citizens of the world we are being witnesses of agitation related to climate change, to a rearrangement of political forces and to socioeconomic inequity among a variety of intertwined elements that cause reflection. It is a complex scenario that leads forces of similar pulsation and that seems to motivate the efforts behind the sharp response in this fifth compilation of Modismo. This compilation joins multinational talents in a wide range of styles, and as a proof of clean intentions it releases music of such depth and quality available for free. A gesture of caring kindness unites these 21 musical statements in which humanity and the plotted electro-mutant sounds dance as a reflection of upcoming storms. The overflowed pessimism, the industrial protest, the revolutionary dance and the questiong of forms have a natural room in one of the most ambitious works created by this label. For its constant commitment with risk and quality this new compilation of Modismo can be considerated as a compulsory stop at the moment of photograph the state of arts in the contemporary electronic music.
We Versus the Shark are proud to present “Murmurmur,” an ongoing collection of renditions of songs we’ve been inspired by in the past few years. Starting today, January 1st, and finishing up on December 1st 2008, each month we’ll be posting a new MP3 to Quote Unquote Records of other people’s jams. Some of the songs are by artists who have gained accolades in some circles but remain obscure in others; a few will be Athens bands we’re excited to big-up. We here at We Versus the Shark believe that “interpreting” (whatever) other artists is a good way to learn about structure, melody, and other things we’re generally confused by. Enjoy “Murmurmur.”
A real musical adventure of experimental electronic music.
This e.p. is full of complex clicks, rhythmic structures and seductive glitches.Written, produced and arranged by Herre Jorna
I hope this music will give your life a nice Glitch and a lovely smile on your face.
This EP is dedicated to the loves of my life:
Wendy, Laura and Patty.

This is a recording of a soundwalk observed from a first person’s point of listening. As all sound recordings do, this soundwalk recording presents what the specific one person hears when she went on a particuar walk. The unusual feature of this work as a soundwalk recording is that it also provides an insight to the thoughts that occur to her while she is on the walk, rendered as a voice letter to an unidentified acquaintance. This reveals personal stories and memories related to the places she visits as part of the soundwalk.

After a web collaboration (album Imperceptible,) Onde Poussière return to free improvisation with their 4th album del_din04, made of sessions recorded on 25th and 26th september 2018. For this occasion, they once more experimented with new set-ups, this time with a focus on lo-fi sound. Doedelzak played laptop amplified with cheap computer speakers and occasionnaly flute, while Kecap Tuyul used his z(xW+yW), a low-tech modular system based on tiny battery-powered guitar amplifiers and contact microphones. Through this new change they continue to explore sonic material and techniques that are likely to cause various accidents and usually unwanted sounds, which are an essential part of the ground on which the band build its improvised soundscapes.
“José Gallardo launches through Pueblo Nuevo his latest album ‘Humores‘ (pn137). Unlike his previous ‘Sinfonía para un hombre solo… en su casa‘ (pn107, 2016), which exhibits the realization of field recordings as a guiding thread, ‘Humores‘ makes reference to the moods or temperaments according to the classification of Hippocrates, considered the father of medicine. It is, thus, a kind of suite that is composed of emotional representations instead of dances.
The humoral theory, in force from Greek Antiquity until after the Renaissance, comprised four temperaments: Choleric, Phlegmatic, Melancholic and Sanguine. Each one of them was associated with an organ and with a secretion of the body (yellow bile, phlegm, black bile, and blood, respectively) and health would depend on the balance between these elements. The word ‘humor’ comes from the Latin ‘humore’ which means liquid or fluid.
As a means of opening, Gallardo adds a fifth state, that of ‘Ansiedad’ (Anxiety), where music tries to connect itself with the future from the present. This is the only track on which we hear an instrument played in a traditional way or without being deconstructed, the Saz of the Middle East, and from this material is apparently also extracted to create adjacent sounds.
Predominant in this album are rough textures, carefully agitated sounds obtained by microsampling – often treated in a granular way, and cacophonous conglomerations, almost always in counterpoint with their opposites, as in the game of resonances and punctual sounds of ‘Melancolía’ (Melancholy). The last track, ‘Sanguíneo Pasional’ (Sanguine Passional), is divided into two very clear moments, the second of them based on a calm drone that brings peace or, better, balance, to close ‘healthily’ this interesting set of music.”
