is a project born from the spontaneous encounter between two Italian djs and producers: Alan Backdrop and Enrico Rlt. Their productions are the outcome of studio jam sessions, recorded live so as to capture the alchemy of the moment. The sound reflects their fascination with 90s electronic music, nature, and travelling.
As per tradition, six tunes that missed becoming part of past full-length records – collected into an ep, mega-ecclectic as always. Beauty, dirt, melody, chaos, casio beats, screaming, a ballad, grunge riffs, casio-disco, tribal pounding.
We are very happy that Gabriele Ragonesi has chosen In Your Ears as a channel to spread his beautiful music freely. Some More White Noise is a compendium of how you can love music and let it flow in the air. Gabriele gives us a disc full of sweetness and fascinating sound solutions. The genres covered are many, from the lounge to the prog, passing through a very personal and strongly evocative solipsistic electronics.
A passion that turns into love, like the beautiful cover of the disc designed by the Brazilian William Santiago, which makes it very clear what you will hear in your ears.
I have been living in Florence since 1987. I started playing the drums as a teenager and played in various Florentine bands, including Essenza, Ellelunga and Miranda, between the 90s and early 2000s, ranging from an anomalous prog rock, the new wave and the post rock. I hung the chopsticks for a few years, starting again to play alone and to devote myself to home recording around 2005, without live activity, which continues today.
The songs produced for Some More White Noise have been composed, recorded and finished in 2017 with vague references, among others, the album “Islands” by King Crimson, the very first fusion, Brian Eno, the Can and the soundtracks of the 60s films, trying to put together a line that was a small journey and an alternation of different emotions and moods.

“Shadows of the Shepherds: A Brief Retrospective of 2017 Works”
This album is a collection of works from the Awkward Geisha 2017 repetoire. Call it a sampler if you wish. Call it a ‘best of’. Call it art.
Awkward Geisha is a free improvisation ensemble with legs firmly lodged in the avant garde and dada movements.
Members of the ensemble vary from song to song.
The ensemble was put together by Harsh Noise Movement in 2016 as a reaction to the mundane and tedious sounds that insult the eardrums on a daily basis.
On this collection, Awkward Geisha is:
HNM. Eric Jovet. Ludwig Dementgenstein. Gaitoh. Ghostskull. Akano Shibahito. Gimp Gash. Tim Kai. Kryptek.
All songs written by Awkward Geisha except Hellhound on my Trail, written by Robert Johnson.
All songs produced, mixed & arranged by HNM.
ARDIKO is quiet, unobtrusive and motivational music, enabling the listener to dream, to think, to dive into his thoughts and at the same time, not to stop and to move forward. The release was easy, beautiful and melodic, ready to inspire and lift the spirits.
The Necrophile Hummingbird presents Vaudou Stellaire by Walt Thisney & Chromatic.
A collaboration done like a new year gift to every listeners who keep their ears open as their mind.
Also one more attempt to break all the borders…
Tracks are recreations from Galactic Voodoo by Walt Thisney
Created in the space between 2017 and 2018.
Chromatic was mostly a plunderphonic project but this time no sample were harmed during the process…
It was such a joy to walk the bridges between our both musical universe,
I hope you will enjoy the vibration.
Thanks a lot to the three Foucherans fairies for their voices on tracks 2/7/11.

This is not a live recording and yet it also is. Part of this concert was ‘semi-acoustic’, not going over the sound system, but using separate smaller speakers and radio speakers. The audience was asked to do a recording on whatever means they had with them, which turned out to be harddisc recorders, camera and mobile phone. All of the ones I received afterwards were used to create the music you are hearing, a collage of various recordings from various points in this space. So its live and not really. I mixed it but did not really edit, as in taking out the ‘bad parts’, it.
Last month, Tha Silent Partner celebrated the ten year Anniversary of his incredible Platters series with BLUNTEDSESH. Today, he kicks off the year long celebration with the first of four releases that’s set to drop each quarter this year! With a title like Touchin’ Gummy Bears Inappropriately: The beattape that was playing while your aunty was getting her pums smashed to bits, you have to know that this isn’t safe for work… and probably not safe for the young and people with heart conditions, too! However… it’s DOPE, so you should not sleep.
As always, many thanks goes out to Tha Silent Partner for delivering the funk!
Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!
melophobia comes from Greece. He likes to experiment with long noise and drone sounds intermingled with field recordings and acoustic sounds. melophobia is heavily influenced by contemporary artists such as Merzbow and early ’90s shoegaze scene. He is active with his ultra-limited releases of his 3″/5″ CDr label ‘illicit-tapes’. He cherishes the piles of his priceless jap noise C-xx tapes and obscure vinyls.
BroodingSideOfMadness is interested in phonemes, graph theory, realism and any dystopian ambiance. He seeks for the generative element in his tracks. He is the founder of Etched Traumas netlabel.
Thematic return to the past. These are the words which characterize the fortieth release of the publishing house. It is a reference to a younger “sibling” ArtAttack in a form of a graffiti document depicting “train bombing” in different parts of world (Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, France, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Portugal, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Austria and Great Britain). It is also a compilation of songs created especially for particular events connecting multiple producers.
Antonio Díaz better known as Pirate, is an electronic music producer who lives in Los Lagos, Chile, and who has always been bound to sounds more ambient, IDM, minimal and dub, is now presenting a surprising EP called ‘En el aire estoy’. The journey starts with the track ‘El Pantano Invisible’ with ambient and minimal surrounding noises, a marked bass drum and several reminiscences of the English electronic sounds of the 90’s such as those of F.S.O.L. or The Orb but at the same time maintaining the originality of the sound that distinguishes us. The second track, that gives name to the EP, includes more atmospheric sounds and a beat closer to IDM. With this track, Pirata shows his exponential growth through complete command of softwares and machines he uses to compose. Moving forward to the next song “Espacio On”, we find a galloping beat with atmospheres and a profound sample similar to a mantra. Later we run into ‘Galeno’ in which Pirata shows clear influences of the German electronic sound of the 80’s. The following song is ‘Imperio Lúdico’. In this one, Pirata, who won the French prize ‘Qwartz Electronic Music’ in 2009 under the category ‘Discovery’, comes back to calmer and more ambient sounds with voices that weave together and glitch sounds that always characterize his music. Finishing this trip with ‘Imperio Lúdico’, Pirata invites us to explore in his EP ‘En el aire estoy’ diverse sounds, influences and an extremely high-level production that has allowed him to position himself as one of the most remarkable exponents of the national electronic music.

Milanese Nwas is the sound of weightless bytes, carefully weaved to accompany the listener into a realm of self-generated paradoxical melodies. It’s music freed from the heaviness of pulse, liberated from the dictatorship of sequences and the weight of measurement.
Each track lives, like insects and plants, as if autonomous agents of a digital biosphere taken control of the computer and created a collection of aural epiphanies.
Working with custom designed softwares and advanced digital synthesis techniques, OOAME builds a self evolving micro-world of augmented harmonies in which the composer’s will acts as a mean of observation, rather than control, focusing on details of a larger and everchanging autonomous process.
Delicacy and fragility merge with pulverized melodies, fractional phrases and quasi conscious noise bursts, giving life to the Nwas concept (“noise” pronounced in French). Milanese Nwas is an experimental act of investigation of self-organizing art, searching for emotion and poetry in the silicon mind: a journey in the beauties of an impalpable artificial wildlife.
