“Weldroid (aka Tamás Zsiros) returns with Regenerative for Kahvi Collective, and this new album is a multifaceted foray of chilled electronics that spans through ambient, synthesizer, and abstract IDM fissures.
Somehow a bit more tranquil in its approach (Zsiros noted that he “decided for a more performance-oriented approach, putting micro-editing and automation aside—and letting unpredictability and probability-based sequencing rule“) each piece admits a softer side the artists’ immense sound bank.”
z(xW+yV) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear. After some tries with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier he developped a modular system on this basis, in order to generate not only feedback, but also feedback of feedback, and feedback of feedback of feedback (…) by chaining amps and microphones in a circular way that blurs more and more the distinction between sound source and sound’s reproduction, between acoustic musical instruments and electronic sound diffusion.
Unlike its first album 3×2(1W+18V) whose 3 pieces where mixes of 2 improvisations, Trois Prises features only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers). Track 1 & 3 contain no edits, track 2 was edited from a longer improvisation.
The album “Discrete Objects” was conceived whilst observing geometry in nature and trying to make a connection between it, neuroscience and abstract physics theories. This led to the question; could using a series of ‘discrete objects’ intentionally cause a cognitive change in the listener?
To test this idea, a number of processes (discrete objects) were used to enhance the recordings. This envolved the subtle usage of neural oscillators (alpha, beta, delta, gamma and theta waves), isochronic tones, binaural beats, harmonic counterpoint and stereo placement.
The result was a slowly evolving musical body of work in which the listener is gradually coaxed into an altered state, vaguely equivalent to ‘tripping’.
In order to fully take advantage of this album, playback on decent stereo speakers that are optimally placed, or good headphones are recommended. However, Discrete Objects can still be enjoyed from a purely musical aspect without these recommendations.
The last we heard from Pete Lund was in February 2016 when we released his terrific uniBloc single “Subway Cameo”. Well, as you may already know, Pete takes his time to craft incredible music. When he finally does release something, you know it’s going to be worth the wait. Well, today, your wait is over!
Today, we not only have new music by Pete, we have a new EP! His first EP since the 20th Century! Let me tell you… these five songs were definitely worth the wait. Enjoy.
Hey Pete… thanks again for working with us to get your terrific music out to listeners! I’m psyched to finally be able to release an EP!
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!
Corruttela is an Italian side-project rising from the artistic connection of Emiliano Pietrini (Globoscuro) + Edoardo Pistolesi Somigli (Edø Pistø Sømi) with the aim of exploring new sound potentialities through a 4-hands compositional approach in which the two artistic personalities are giving birth to a renovated concept, in which electronic and analogue ambient refined flows are walking arm in arm, and melt in a psychedelic and concrete “harmonious disharmony”. The 4 tracks in this first work are characterized by a heterogeneous homogeneity, mainly based on the alchemic fusion of electronic sounds intertwining with smart piano-esque bleeps, gusts of concrete noise, irrational wooden percussions, synthesizers and theremin that walk together with different kind of steps but in a stubbornly common direction. Paradoxically the panorama that opens up raves geometrically outlined visions, it is a sort of sonic poem without words which leads on a corridor with many doors and many entrances that revolve around the different cardinal points of a common caothic universe.
What sticks out while listening to the Listen to my heart EP is the fact that ist creator Mar io has been in the business for a long time and has mastered the skill of combining a range of influences and styles into very atmospheric tunes. After his previous vinyl EP on the Cologne-based label Form & Terra, these seven new tracks seem more like a mini album than your usual EP and embrace the listener with warm and atmospheric melodies, vocals and lots of groove from start to finish. Mar io’s sounds are packed with club music history, ranging from acid house references, emerging through the Zweig remix of the title track, up to flashbacks into the more explicit and direct approach for which 90s club tracks are so much loved these days. However, he always manages to weave such influences into his tracks in the most respectful way, not making it sound like an obvious reach out to the retro-crowd but like a loving reminiscence of the glorious past. Not to forget that with „Shake Your Body (Give It To Me)“ (Electro Mix) Mar io underlines that his latest EP is not only made for the dancefloor, even though this is where it surely will cause elevate levels of serotonine pretty soon.
Since Ölü Körpe was released their ‘Saudade’ music video (bit.ly/SaudadeOluKorpe) in January, I feels it might be similiar with his first album with full of guitar ambient. But, last week, when I was checking my email, suddenly I found that Lutfi-man behind Ölü Körpe- sent me his new album called, Great Migration. There are 5 songs included it. And something fresh from the album is the sounds that he made; Less guitar ambient and more percussive sound.
In ‘Great Migration’, Luthfi had more explore their way and approarch to make a sounds. He literally make a ‘great migration’ of his works; Moved a little bit to the sides from his usual Del Toro-ish (Guillermo, not Benicio) to be manic, awkward, and more anxious with his new approach.
You might want to use good headphones for this 5-songs journey. Luthfi put some interesting movements here and there, so that’s that.

Enkō and Inversus is a mixture of two artistic talents who are actively contributing to the Lisbon music scene.
Enkō is a DJ and producer and a rising name on techno and ambient. He’s been behind the curatorial activity at OBRΔ after-hours, the sunset evenings of Ocaso, and is a solid DJ frequenting venues such as Lux, Boom Festival, Gare, Orbits, Festival Forte, etc.
Inversus is a musician, trained painter, and professional studio owner. He relentlessly explores the possibilities of visual and sound arts. The impact of his 2017 release, “Sobrena” (ZigurArtists label) is still echoing while his live performances continue to resonate.
“Murmur” arose from the intersection of these two producers’ exploration of semi-literal rhythms and atmospheres. The result fits very comfortably into the Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda) evolving aesthetic, with remixes by label partners Gabi von Dub (Augen) and Dave Wesley… and signature graphic design by Andre Macedo.

Illegal Arts EP holds a bold range of genre defiance, with influences ranging from outer-space, acid techno to low-fi, industrial house to yet discovered arcade, jungle techno. There’s never a dull moment with their unusual composition, beautiful dissonance, warm grooves, eerie textures and mischievous approach to progressive techno. Be prepared for something special as this 80’s, New York hip-hop inspired EP propels you into the next dimension.
Sturm und Drang is a greatly improved and expanded Storm and Urge, originally released on Vulpiano back in 2011. Awash with noise but still so sweet, and perhaps one of the warmest, coziest releases LKOY’s discography.
Words from the artist:
“Marking a start to the singer-songwriter transition, I went away from sequencing synths and into learning how to sing. It was ultimately influenced by relationships and usually from the perspective of ‘me to you’, but its turn-around was that I always sang them to myself. Despite drowning most lyrics in delay and noise, it only mattered if I knew what they were. This was my practice of reminders and rewiring.
There’s always been recordings from each cycle that sang and latched onto other people, giving reason into sharing the music at all, but that did eventually mutate why I liked to record. Once anyone else heard my voice, it wasn’t really mine anymore.”
10 years of material selected from the archives covering 2009-2019 and showcased in five parts. Available to stream in full or free download.
