Graphic Antics – What Does It Mean?

[BSOG0064]

Graphic Antics

“What Does It Mean?”

In 2016 Ant The Symbol combined forces with fellow Richmond, VA (now Portland, Maine based) artist Graphic Melee to record and release an album. With Ant in control on the beats and Melee rockin’ the mic… Graphic Antics was born. Their first album Uh Oh… provided them with a strong base to build from… one which they would use to full effect this year.

Today we have the pleasure of releasing their sophomore album What Does It Mean? that blasts off from the first album’s base, finding Melee and Ant hitting their stride as a creative team, delivering something special to their fans and new listeners. With Ant’s dense textures and complex rhythms along with Melee’s strong delivery and lyrical content… there’s a lot here for heads to dig.

Many thanks to Graphic Melee and Ant The Symbol for delivering the best GA album yet as your first for the bloc! Melee… welcome to the blocSonic fam!

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!

MigloJE – Perception

[384]

MigloJE

“Perception”

MigloJE is the master of ambient drone at Kahvi, and here is some of his newest work in the form of a 15 track album.

Each track merges into the next, creating 84 minutes of pure sound, gradually building and then fading away, with layer upon layer of subtle elements.

Perfect for that rainy afternoon or a lazy day in the sun.

TNKS – Nostalgic Happiness

[SCM-1701]

TNKS

“Nostalgic Happiness”

Three years after their debut album (‘Gate One’, released by Sucu Music as SCM-1405), TNKS come back with their second effort, ‘Nostalgic Happiness’. The music on offer here is a very good blend of electronics and melody, with a lot of space provided by soundscaping guitars and sequenced synthesizers.
​Not a frontal attack to the listener’s synapses, but a tentacle-like embrace of their aural dimensions and souls.

La Bella Violencia & Mika Martini. – La Mirada del Sonido

[pn120]

La Bella Violencia & Mika Martini.

“La Mirada del Sonido”

From the Great Beyond. Brief summary from the exploration log of “La Mirada del Sonido” (The view of sound).

“We might expect that in the convergence of the works of Mika Martini and Iñaki Muñoz, one would encounter realizations that contain the most essential of the experimental music and visuality from this territory. From the auditory, Martini integrates sound clusters inspired by the electroacoustic ancestors of this generation, and from the visual, the glazes in motion of La Bella Violencia evoke the chromatic layers of Roberto Matta, adding without doubt, the chaotic force of chance and error.

Martini and Muñoz have experimented with the transit between materializations analogous and numerical, tangible and intangible. The work is configured as a portal. In ‘La Mirada del Sonido’ images and sounds are integrated, relieving a friendly narrative tension, it could be the soundtrack of an initiatory trip towards the center of our brain, where the neuronal transmissions seem to be granted an aesthetic through this work, chemically activating the DMT that exists in our systems.

These materializations, which function as neuronal chemical releasers, deliver a sensorial experience that determines a respectful concentration, where music and images are integrated into an organic volume that is perhaps unrepeatable, inconsistent, based on the unique experience of turning seeing and hearing into a total virtuality.”

WENIG DUO

“Studies on event​-​density”

WENIG DUO | Studies on event-density
LIVE AT PENINHA

“Wenig Duo focuses on the activity of silence where the space works as an amplifier and assumes an important role in the performance.
With a crystallized language, the music of the duo is attentive to detail, it’s written and invites the listener for a greater awareness of the sound where this duo, formed by the musicians Guilherme Rodrigues and André Hencleeday operate.
The instrumentation is variable.”

“O duo WENIG foca-se na actividade do silêncio numa performance e no resultado deste enquanto amplificador do espaço.
A música do duo, já com uma linguagem cristalizada, é uma música atenta ao detalhe, de suporte escrito e que convida o ouvinte para um retiro de maior consciencialização do som do espaço, da música e dos seus envolventes.
É formado pelos músicos Guilherme Rodrigues e André Hencleeday e é de instrumentação variável.”

nnls – connection

[SOMO007]

nnls

“connection”

Rough distorted rhythms and hazy melodies. A combination of raw machine jams and jagged textures of lo-fi pads. Fuzzy aesthetics built by field recordings, samples and personal memories. In his debut on sonic moiré nnls musically refers to streets of his home in Italy. Every track is a musical quote of a drive or journey, every title a reference to an existing road. A musical cartography of the artists environment. This piece portrays a persons connection to its environment and its paths, which is captured in the title of the album.

This album is also available as a limited, elaborate tape version and includes a mirroreffect packaging, booklet, download code, bonus tracks and a sticker.

BeatMyth – One Hand Clap

[KAM024]

BeatMyth

“One Hand Clap “

Myth: a sacred story, a set of beliefs, a way to make sense of the world, to connect the dots. A notion that is also the name of one of the first tracks made by BeatMyth (in 2007). It was one of many pieces in that raw and forward-thinking style, characteristic for the next half decade. But, the mythical narrative can be said to have started in Novo mesto, that town just halfway between Ljubljana and Zagreb. Exchanging the guitar and the amp with two turntables was the best deal ever. And there we also have the beginnings of the praised jazz-funk-rock group Moveknowledgment, and PlankTon’s turntables and records were part of it. Dance parties soon ensued at the local pub and the locals were going bat-shit-crazy, driven by the fast jump-up breakbeat science from the UK. It was all LTJ Bukem’s fault. And perhaps Fatboy Slim’s too.

After a few years in the urban setting of Ljubljana, there was more and more electronic music knowledge on the table. Igor and his flatmate Mitja Pritržnik were dabbling in writing and production, laying down some charged breakbeat tracks, inviting N’toko – PlankTon’s partner MC at many drum’n’bass gigs – for an ad-hoc recording session. And Mitja’s sister giveth the project the name. At the backdrop of that time were musical influences such as Adam Freeland and Hyper, gigs with the “Illegal crew”, a drum’n’bass crew on the rise, and production discussions with its chief MarkoMan. Lots of hours of tedious work behind the computer resulted in BeatMyth’s debut: “Your Own Two Heads”, an industrial electro-punk collection of bangers.

In the poetics of this work, one can sense the history of personal musical growth: the beginnings in doom metal and the sense of immediacy of jump-up and harder strains of drum’n’bass. Active as a DJ in the last decade, PlankTon moved exceedingly firmly into the contemporary breakbeat scene, very much in line with what can be found on BeatMyth’s first two albums. However, proper appreciation of this project is not possible without taking into account the live performance of PlankTon and N’toko, who have until now always presented BeatMyth in an outgoing onslaught of beats, basslines, synth-stabs, and fast vocal ranting, animating many a sleepy auditorium into something akin to a small riot. And to furthermore bring the tentacles of this project’s context to light, it must be said that at the core of the project stands a multiskilled producer and audio engineer, whose areas of work go beyond mere clicking around his DAW: robotics workshops for kids, technical support for art installations, analogue synthesizer repairs, audio studio building, mastering and mixing a variety of different projects, and live sound.

And finally, this, the third album maturely brings up musical material created through a different approach, a different attitude, and mixes it up with that signature outgoing electro-punk vibe of the previous two albums. This attitude is purposefully playful. It’s a move away from the dance floor, away from the dictate of the live spectacle into an exploration of sound-based sample-heavy trickery. Still, it by no means represents an abandonment of the basic, ever-present principle, the pillar of this sound: firm musical decisiveness and a never-ending search for dynamics in balance.
