Yomgaille – Repetition and Motion

[394]

Yomgaille

“Repetition and Motion”

It’s been a long while since Kahvi went back to it’s roots, and this guest artist defines the sound that made Kahvi originally.

Oldskool tracks brought up to the 21st Century (yes, Kahvi started in the 20th Century!) with the latest synths and sounds, but in a similar style to the old tracker scene that kicked off back in the late 80s.

Yomgaille with his EP Repetition and motion shows there are plenty of diverse textures and themes from those days, but the oldskool vibe is there throughout, giving you a taste of nostalgia if you’re familiar of those bygone days, or a fresh example if you’re a newbie. For this oldskooler, tracks A, B, C bring back that reminder of the good old days in the late 80s when trackers ruled the scene.

Lluvia Acida – Ciencia Sur

[pn125]

Lluvia Acida

“Ciencia Sur”

“We are musicians who live and create at the edge of the world, who over two decades have worked to represent through sound and image various aspects of our habitat. ‘Ciencia Sur‘ (Southern Science) continues this trajectory, addressing the subject of field research. This work was conceived as a musical and audiovisual journey through the imposing landscapes of Patagonia and Antarctica, where science is developed in extreme conditions, as it seeks to answer transcendental questions about the past, present and future of the planet we inhabit.

The composition and recording of these works developed between July and September, combining the use of synthesizers with the use of unusual resources, such as the recording of sounds and electromagnetic emissions emitted by laboratory instruments and the conversion into sound of fossil images and diagrams concerning Climate Change through special software. We launched it in the framework of the opening of the IX Latin American Congress of Antarctic Science, an event that in early October 2017 brought together more than 300 researchers in the city of Punta Arenas (Chile).

The presentation of these works is accompanied by images provided by the Department of Communications and Education of the Chilean Antarctic Institute, which shows excavations in Cerro Guido (Torres del Paine commune), marine studies in the Magallanes channels, and images of the last two versions of the Antarctic Scientific Expedition (ECA), the latter including recordings made with drones on Chilean scientific bases in the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetlands.

For us, it is very important to link art with the science that is being realized in the territory that we inhabit, because we believe that being of the Magallanes concerns not only knowing about our regional past, but also in imagining a future based on the search for knowledge. This work is dedicated to the women and men who study both the remote past and the uncertain future, entering the southern bastions. There, between the wind and the ice, they are discovering the keys to our destiny.”

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.

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.

Satanoid – Astronomical Disease

[NTT085]

Satanoid

“Astronomical Disease”

Satanoid – an audio project by Finland’s Sami Kekkonen – investigates the borders of what could be considered extreme sonic decimation.
Listening to his album “Astronomical Disease”, you will find out that, despite the seemingly persistent illusion that today’s abundance of electronic music continually collides into a mode of endless reiteration, there is still room for refreshing experiments.
This magnificent slaughterhouse of relentless modular deconstruction easily obliterates any previously established notion of high BPM’s and intelligent (de-)composition, while viscerally exploiting those quasi-aleatoric holes few humans are likely to have ever conceived of.
A masterful work that deserves your undivided attention, if like me, you crave for things that are entirely authentic.

Monkey Warhol – EP4

Monkey Warhol

“EP4”

Born in the late-1800s Monkey Warhol began making electronic music of various sorts, tones, and timbers in 1947. Inspired by Bob Dylan’s loud and abrasive “Metal Machine Music”, Monkey turned to music as a source of income after failed stints as both a zookeeper and dental hygienist. EP4 is HIS take on POP music (watch out Max Martin… there’s a new sheriff in town!).

transient – return to the white blazes

[nvr047]

transient

“return to the white blazes”

15 years ago I released ‘white blazes’, an album made while hiking on the Appalachian Trail. A place that feels like my true home. Always residing in the depths of my mind, calling me back to the solitude and beauty that only nature can provide. So life recently provided me a little window of a bit over a month to return to this magical trail. Naturally, I thought it was a perfect time to compose a follow up to the original ‘white blazes’ and so you have here before you ‘return to the white blazes’. An album composed in the forests on the AT in Virginia, North Carolina, & Tennessee in the months of October and November of 2016. Back in the early 2000’s when I conceived the first release, I carried a heavy (15+ pound) laptop. The battery would barely hold a charge, and in the colder months of a winter hike would barely work at all. Oh, how times have changed in this short moment between then and now. This trip, I was able to carry 2 cell phones, a tablet, a plethora of power banks, etc. all weighing well under the weight and thoroughly out performing in terms of specs the original laptop. The trip provided much adventure and time for deep thought. I was surrounded with beautiful vistas awash in the splendor of autumn, clean crisp air in the star filled nights. I shared my campsite with packs of coyotes, got interrupted during dinner by a hungry bear, read lots of books, experienced the intensity of forest fires, and generally got rid of years worth of clutter in my head in a way only the trail can provide. It is my hope, that in some way, I may have captured just a bit of that magic in what I present to you here. That in these tones and rhythms you can experience a bit of that solitude and beauty for yourself, and if I failed, I only hope I can encourage you to go out and experience the wonders of nature for yourself. Much Love!

Ambelion – Past Future

[CAEL0003]

Ambelion

“Past Future”

Past Future is CerebralAudio’s second in a series of re-releases of Ambelion’s back catalog. Ambelion approached us about re-releasing these works in the hope that we would be able to gather more attention to his work, and improve on the packaging and mastering of his work: in essence bringing new life to his relatively unknown and neglected work.

Having being familiar with Waiting For Quarters, there was immediate interest in listening to the works that Ambelion had previously released. He sent us two releases: Quasi-Stationary and Past Future. It didn’t take much for us to agree that these works needed to be heard, and Ambelion needs to be appreciated by a more receptive audience.

So, Past Future is the second of these releases. In the future we are working on several more releases from his back catalog, including the potential release of some previously un-released tracks.
