A warm welcome back to Jim Black, who seems to appear with a large selection of tracks a couple of times a year.
If you’re not familiar with Jim, he manages to create the vibe of the classic early 90s techno/IDM roots perfectly, bringing back feelings of nostalgia to those who listened to Kiss FM (London) and DJs like Colin Favor.
This time around we have a seven track ep to ease you towards the party season, block driving beats, four to the floor, but with a 21st century edge.

“South Late Winter Dream / My Stars, My Perfect Silence”
Minus Pilots is percussionist Matt Pittori and bassist Adam Barringer. Together they weave sparse textures, crumbling atmospheres and fractured drones with currents of gentle crackle. Between post-rock and ambient, their music incline towards a form of refined abstraction, but always keeps a strong emotional side. And once again, on their new EP South Late Winter Dream/My Stars, My Perfect Silence, the duo masterfully mixes dreamy melodies with a complex work on sound textures and rhythmic micro-events.
Tihomir Zdjelarevic is a Berlin based musician. He works with modular synthesizer, string synthesizer, guitar, Four track and hardware effects to create a large soundscape with a kosmic vibe. Influenced by the 70s psychedelic music, especially Krautrock and Berlin school of electronic music, he sent himself on a journey to resurrect the sounds into an another authentic experience.
Mikrowelt is his first year of living in Berlin summed up in one LP. Most of the album is made of layers after layers of modular synthesizer tracks with some addition of guitar, sax, bass guitar and field recordings.
Unlike plants, mushrooms cannot synthesize their own food from the sun’s energy. They lack chlorophyll – the substance which permits plants to use sunlight to form sugars from the water and carbon dioxide in the air. Mushrooms therefore had to develop special methods of living: symbiosis, saprophytism and parasitism.
Most of the mushrooms growing on the forest floor are intimately linked to trees by symbiosis. This association, called mycorrhiza, occurs between the root ends of a tree and the vegetative system of a mushroom. Mycorrhiza benefits both organisms: there is an exchange of nutrients, one providing to other what it cannot synthesize or extract from the soil by itself. In general, the mushroom helps the tree extract minerals and water from the soil; in exchange, the tree supplies the mushroom with sugar compounds (carbohydrates).
Saprophytism is another important living method for mushrooms, especially for species which grow on lawns, on rotting wood or on excrement. Here the mushroom’s role is one of decomposition. It feeds itself by digesting the organic matter and at the same time returns nutrients to the soil.
Finally, some mushrooms are parasites. There are several kinds of parasitism, ranging from the species which attacks a healthy host (tree, plant or insect) and lives on it without killing it, to the kind which attacks only unhealthy hosts, thereby hastening their death. The parasitic species are generally microscopic mushrooms.
This right here is not an album. This right here is not an EP.
This right here is a gift.
The best gift that a musician can receive.
The gift of inspiration.
A gift so overwhelming that needs to be given back in some kind of shape or form.
A gift of life, of love, turned into music.
Eight moments to lull you to sleep, to drive you home safe and sound, to hold you and warm you.
Lullabies are meant to make you close your eyes and numb your body, waiting for sleep to come and take away your weariness.
Lullabies are blankets, tales, emotions, caves, rays of light, windows, reassurances, and calm sands.
No rhythms whatsoever here, just flowing guitars, and sounds. To make you feel like a newborn child in the warmest embrace you can imagine, surrounded by the gentle sound of a grandfather playing you to sleep.
Sleep well child, sleep well you who listen, ‘cause someone is looking after you and he is eager to take the greatest gift of all and give it back to you.
To all of you.

Collaboration EP between our staff member ps and the German project OKAM. Four tracks of a journey through time and space. Dark ambient cinematic sounds riddled with field recordings and influences from shoegaze and breakcore.
“Rasgos Particulares” is Javier Moraga’s debut release in Modismos catalogue. Its electronic influence can be traced back many years, through diverse publications inside specialized netlabels like EPA Sonidos and Pueblo Nuevo. He is part of the group Mr & Oso, while also working at Radio Valentin Letelier, the University of Valparaiso’s radio station. He produces the program “Sala de Maquinas,” as well as producing direct presentations and selects synthetic sounds for the station through it’s network, among other things. “Rasgos Particulares,” present delivery could be a sample about Moraga’s interests with contemporary electronic, where certain tone quality is acidic and minimal, as small condiments, they go extending upon alternating atmospheric layers, sustained on defragmented pulses, but traces of the music continue. These particular traits are expressed in the track “Tierno Salvaje” dedicated to the memory of Kurt, a figure that insufflated the spirit of the underground scene of Viña Del Mar and Valparaíso in the nineties, which opens the 52 minutes of music. The other tracks of the album spin perfectly, traveling through titles such as “Miaucheck,” “Arena Lunar (a lo salvaje)”, “Dame Cinco”, at certain moments there is something dark, with minor scales in the tones, a cinematic fiction of the digital reality that we consume daily, but allows us to unwind, yet expresses a world where the organic, virgin and primitive can coexist, as expressed in “Cayehuque (localidad)”. But the continuous progression in “Simulación Colectiva,” runs as a transit towards the final melody of “Rasgos Particulares,” from which a flash of faint light seems to emanate; it comes to a definitive closing with “Resolana.” Which offers a halo of light, in where the final harmony, reiterative and kaleidoscopic, solve all anguish, torment and conflict preceding, balancing the darkness.
“Walt Thisney selects and mixes music for the mind and body in the same quantities that emerges from encounters between the past and the present, drawing beauty of the commonplace, wiping, polishing it, giving it life again, so to produce the same effect of the original freshness and spontaneity, a mirror that transforms it absorbs and reflects.”
DISSONANT adalah unit electronic / eksperimental antara Andryan Ade dan Yoga Usmad. Project ini bereksperimen dengan suara ambient, soundscape, noise, serta dipadukan dengan instrument piano dan synthesizer.
“Journey.” berisi arsip audio dari pertunjukan musik yang telah dilakukan Dissonant. Materi komposisi berasal dari element dan suara-suara yang ada dalam album pertama (dirilis oleh netlabel Mindblasting). Kami mengembangkan materi-materi dalam album tersebut dan melakukan kolaborasi dengan beberapa seniman (instalasi, video maker, dan musisi). Kolaborasi lintas disiplin ini merupakan upaya eksplorasi untuk menemukan bentuk komposisi baru disetiap presentasinya. Hasil rekaman diambil dari pementasan di beberapa kota (Jogjakarta, Semarang, dan Salatiga).
The music of Walt Thisney is a solitary soundtrack to nowhere, a non-tourist map into the unknown; music and images to create new, fully immersive environments, an intriguing aural pilgrimage with no destination in time and space, nuances and labyrinths.
Field recordings processed using granular synthesis, time scaling and various other methods.
