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.

Vocal experimentation made on April 14th 2018 with family friends and my parents in the next room.
I make lots of music because living in the Borders is really Boring; creativity is essential for staying awake around here. I’ve been obsessively listening to my music until I don’t like it anymore for roughly 7 years. I’m not sure what I want to do with my life but I do plan on making music for the rest of my days.
Fergus McQueenie (aka Eggshell Goblin).Track 1 is all 3 tracks made available as one file.
Complex rhythmic combinations, constantly getting faster to the point of losing the structure and becoming a vast halo of drum-like noise tearing the last orchestral sounds, that couldn’t get ready for an end of a process that didn’t even start, and hopeless melodies that aren’t sure if they are supposed to exist.
Having difficulties to cope with worsening states of disorders, Event leaps to search for an answer by removing the definitions completely and allowing to make connections again, to feel attached to things that were once familiar and welcoming. Knowing that this way of searching for the source of the disorders will lead to a failure, by not being able to relate to those things, renders them strange, wiping all of them away. But one of those gets stuck, resisting to go away and holding everything together. The Event leads itself to disengage from everything that could be described with a definition.
All the sound’s fat and the juiciest original groove is always on the periphery. He is born in the backyard, in the underground, on outskirts. Proceeding from this I left Petersburg. For several months I made a number of musical sketches in the industrial Kirovo-Chepetsk and completed this experiment in the border Svetogorsk, among the moist forests of the Karelian Isthmus.
Ghettojukebox is not an album, it’s a finger pointing to what’s going on. Eight compositions – eight metaphors for different, quite specific situations that took place in the Russian reality in the fall of 2017.
If images, such as photography, can reproduce the moment, then the sound restores the experience of the moment itself. Any sound is born in the oscillation, the reality vibrates chaotically, and tongues shake the air of what’s going on, filling the space with feelings, giving birth to a deep, unique vibe, in a tangle of perfectly natural rhythms.
My artistic task was to fix impulses and vibrations of the situation inside the situation and to transform them into the vibrations of your speakers. Using the natural plasticity of sound as a material, I made a kind of map, under which the listener has the opportunity to set foot on the territory woven from the material of paneled five-story building and the blackened boards of forgotten Russian villages. In the ratio of noise and silence to hear the mysticism of the forest, to feel people, dogs and the life of the Russian periphery.
A dense darkness lifts your soul to sink into a velvety oblivion. Perhaps a little exaggerated, but in a way it could approach the definition that Steel Drama would give to their own productions. With this first EP entitled as themselves, Steel Drama are presented with four tracks of dark, epic and cinematic electronic music. Relax, turn off the light, turn up the volume and let yourself go.
There are occasions when we are jamming together without presetting any genre or style. In real time we choose the wave synthesizer, samples or connected microphones. On the fly we modify the source sound adding equalization, effects chains and compression keeping in mind the arrangement of a noisy musical flow and interacting with each other. We record the master mix and then cut the best parts out of many hours of raw jams, sort them and cut out odd sounds, re-compose track, equalize, normalize and finally publish an album. Proud to share with you selected experimental electronics of 2k15-18 period by 303 / “Trio Three”.

“Cherchez La Couleur” contains un sample of “Cherchez La Lumière” by Solar Quest. Le morceau est une réadaptation à la nouvelle sauce Rocky d’un vieux morceau de Rocky Controlo à l’époque de ses premiers essais (1998). Le Morceau s’appellait “Tiger’s Eye”. Réalisé avec Lucy Pons. Il y avait des dessins de pochettes provisoire à ce sujet, il reste encore à les retrouver.
Esta vez nos llegan las canciones desde Paraguay.
Coven, nuevo colaborador, busca el impacto del ruido y la oscuridad en el oyente. Ritmos acelerados, capas de ruido, voces desfiguradas… terror siniestro sin concesiones ni esperanza. Gracias por darnos caña!
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.
Terranean Recordings bolsters the roster with the first outing by hot-blood Half-Lifer, presenting six mucky fusions of industrial spoil and sound system technology misuse. Working back to back with Luke Lund, they open up a caustic rift to a world of adulterated electronics, spawning a slanted vision of rhythmic solutions lugged from the bruxist fringe of the ‘floor.
We kick off with Luke’s helpings of gut-punching pressure. “Pusher” balances with tricky percussive odd-time sleights and ‘woofer bombs while “Blazed” veers off the atmosphere to a frenzied narcotic mania twisting samples of wheezer laughs. Fun’s over and an air of darkness enters on “Dregs” with its ear-shredding skree.
Passing the ball to Half-Lifer; “Dump Truck” and its razor sharp slashes, skeletal patterns and precise kick drum weight. Corrosive slurry textures dominate on the crunched out roughage of “Trash Compactor”. The EP signs off with nigh-beatless “Under” full of dread, tectonic low end movement and carefully placed shudder-inducing No U-Turn -esque shockout stabs.
All foreshadowing the imminent Half-Lifer debut album “Trigger Stacking” on Barely Here, of course.
“Alea iacta est, luck or chance, may well be the ideas navigated by the musical work of Aiggom Gaudium (pseudonym Sebastian Moggia), in his first publication in Pueblo Nuevo, who does justice to the name of this EP in a way that is mysterious and almost cryptic.
Translated into English, the title of the album means ‘the luck is cast’, probably in reference to the artistic courage of trying to control the uncontrollable through music. The development, a mixture between the past and that which ensues through time, are shown here in an amalgam of references through which the author moves -and has moved before-, comfortably, as much in the mixture of styles with denomination of origin, as in the resulting sonorities and a musicality of neat technical style.
Links with the ambient, tints of arrangements with origins in traditional instrumental music, abundant in thick beds, classical pianos and electronic sequences, real or simulated violins and jazzy drums, these make up this group of four compositions with kind and sometimes melancholic melodies, they provide glimpses of finely intertwined electronic treatments; they are sonic layers that advance in atmospheres and unimagined landscapes, that through multiple listens necessarily evoke a different time, as if Aiggom Gaudium had tempted luck, taking it by the horns and submitting it to his musical will.”

“From Viña arrives to Pueblo Nuevo the interesting project Aiggom Gaudium, the intellectual property of the musician and producer Sebastián Moggia, whose name has been hitherto unknown in the small world of electronic music, and who makes his official debut with this collection of 4 tracks entitled ‘Alea Iacta Est’.
Sebastian, as he himself has defined it, travels in this EP through past lives in different personal projects and styles, as much within electronic music and outside it, including techno, house, psytrance, drum & bass, chill-out, jazz and classical music. In this work he constructs with delicate electronic and acoustic elements musical passages of an instrumental nature that ignite in distinct moments, and with varied textures, the omnipresent and conceptual darkness of the author.
We move here through different scenes and sensibilities in an environment that is dark, but developed with “plot and drama”, with an emphasis on the subtlety of well-produced and mixed synthetic sounds, orchestrated environments, dancing to the sound of good beats and percussion loops. Sebastian here presents stories, with developments and a kind of script with distinct scenes in a single musical tour, as in his beautiful track ‘I’m Late’, which delights with its pianos, synthesizers and voices processed through a path with different nuances and breaks.
‘Canto en Púrpura (Song in Purple)’ is another mysterious story of the composer, with good rhythmic movement from electronic and real drum loops, a bit like Massive Attack on their Mezzanine album, which holds warm touches of synthesized pads. An almost cinematic view of a desolate landscape, but exciting to contemplate.
Completing this work are the pieces ‘Quasi una Fantasía’ and ‘Cycling’, which comprise a more intense rhythmic attunement, coated with processed analog sounds, acoustic pianos and voices from a heartfelt, ceremonial, and distant song, as in a revealing dream. As the composer tells us in his title, ‘The luck is cast’, because on a personal level this adventurous soloist has started on the right foot, and I wish him the best in his creation and new pathways. Enjoy.”
