“Paraíso Sintético” (Synthetic Paradise), an album realized in the first semester of 2017 as the author’s thesis, is the product of a year of research and sonic experimentation seeking to characterize the sonic identity of urban spaces. Realized and produced in Medellín, Colombia, this album explores topics ranging from urbanism and the social appropriation of the environment to the relationship between art and society and it reflects on human activity as a condition and determinant of the qualities of the city.
Embarking from the hypothesis that the city has a malleable, artistic and aesthetic potential, “Paraíso Sintético” is an EP composed of three songs performed in the Parque de Berrío, one of the main parks of the city of Medellín. The composition of each song, whose material was recorded at a different time of the day (morning, noon, night), seeks to show how human activity affects the sound spectrum and it proposes an interpretation, from the musical point of view, of this phenomenon.

Oakland based producer Angel Rubio-Hale aka ONHELL returns with his latest effort Linden. Composed over the course of the past two years, these four tracks capture the essence of his experiences living and making music in Oakland.
The unifying theme on the release is about enjoying life and each track is ultimately inspired by making the most of being alive by exploring the different facets of our existence. A prime example is the track “HIV+” created while contemplating his mortality upon receiving a false positive result from an HIV test. Linden successfully conjoins where ONHELL has been musically while also providing a glimpse of where he’s going. It’s this merging of his past with his future right here in the present that makes listening to this EP so exhilarating.
Revealing complex interplay, embryonic sensorial analysis and epidermal toxic particles under CPU demands, Hypercube sonic display extends to systemic insensitivity, parametric establishment and modular telepathy over side effects of intercourse adaptation and cosmic lobotomy rituals.
This album also features two tracks re-assembled and tumble dried by Zzy and Jab[ber].wock. Vocals FX on track 2 and track 3 by Metalique. This Album is dedicated to the memory of Thomas Denis (Qebrus).

Here is some indeterminate music for vague wars. You may wish to keep it on at a low volume level in the background, perhaps as an accompaniment to reading or even writing. Ignore it. Nothing will happen.
In days where freedom around formats in which music is delivered seems to be reaching absolut liberty, Modismo gives us a brief yet overwhelming release by René Roco. With less than 18 minutes in length, we find sounds that manage to immerse us completely in a work of perfect balances. Captivating in its more danceable and pop side, this EP finds a point of equilibrium between melody and beat in ‘DIT’, the shortest of its tracks. In an interesting contrast, ‘TOC’ extends from a more enigmatic side. Curious sounds give the idea of a search that breaks the mold without neglecting the good pulse. Warm Pads are confronted to high frequencies that activate and stimulate our receptors to switch them on and prepare them for a short flight yet rotund. Martial percussive games and ludic keys provide a counterpoint that prepares us for a sudden fall, hanging on notes that fade to silence. In view of this, René Roco offers us a production that invites to start it all over again.
Appearing through the thick foliage with determination in it’s body. This being of ultimate mind and spirit, maneuvers around fallen plant-life as if it’s floating on air. Searching for the one place to call it’s own. Secret sanctuary as you will. A zone of comfort from this all to sensory deluged universe. Having traveled vast distances as a ghost. No other being had knowledge of it’s journey but for every step, it gained more and more understanding of the world we had thought was our own. For this simple creature shared the same vast unlimited ancient wisdom of the sky above and all the way down into the deeps of spirit. The “all seeing eye” ? Perhaps the embodiment of the reincarnated Buddha? It might be hard to believe that this powerful mind of incredible comprehension of all pleasure and pain, could cure all of our worldly woes. That is if we only could listen to it’s observations? Yes, the great enlightened one. No wounder the ancient Egyptians worshiped it.
“Como corresponde a dos veteranos de la escena musical, Lars Graugaard y Claudio Pérez tienen entre ellos una amplia experiencia en estilos como jazz, electrónica, pop, clásica y contemporánea, cubriendo enfoques creativos que incluyen improvisación, notación, programación y producción musical. Ahora unen fuerzas en tres pistas extendidas que de muchas maneras son similares a sus presentaciones en directo, en las que la música en constante transformación de Lars crea un campo de juego para los exquisitos y fluidos inventos en teclado y sintetizadores de Claudio.
Si bien todas las pistas tienen una fuerte base rítmica, las hazañas sonoras continuas produce una música atrevida en refundación ininterrumpida y con giros sorprendentes e vueltas inesperadas.
Los paisajes sonoros de indole psicodélico recuerda al trabajo de Radian, Jan St. Werner y Blir, e incluso a las creaciones subacuáticas de Porter Ricks, particularmente cuando las pistas alcanzan
alta densidad tecno-febril y el conjunto se hace acídico-delirante. En ocasiones, el cuerpo sonoro entero está siendo agusanado por procesos perforantes que transforma la música en algo fantasmagórico, como si pasase a través de un insondable agujero de tiempo y espacio, donde el instante se deforma en visiones deliciosamente irracionales de un sinrazón obstinado.”
“As befits two veterans of the music scene, Lars Graugaard and Claudio Perez hold extensive experience between them in jazz, electronica, pop, classical and contemporary music styles, and cover creative approaches that include improvisation, scoring, computer coding and music production. Now they join forces in three extended tracks that in many ways are similar to their live performances where Lars’ constantly morphing live laptop provides a rich playing field for Claudio’s exquisite and free-flowing inventions on keyboard and synthesizers.
While all tracks have a strong rhythmic grounding, the sonic exploits are daring and continuous and the result is an unbroken musical recasting that provides some unexpected twists and turn along the way. The psychedelic electronic sounds form extended electronic soundscape that are reminiscent of the work of Radian, Jan St. Werner and Blir – even reaching back to Porter Ricks’ subaquatic
creations, particularly when the tracks reach techno-feverish density and the electronics go acidotic rave. At times the entire sound is perforated by vermian processes that ghost casts the music, as if passing through an unfathomable time-space hole that warp and malforms the ongoings into deliciously irrational moments of stubborn unreasoning.”

Powels Lumski‘s first EP “See_Shades” has the DNA of the classic ambient to down-tempo vibe. The four tracks slowly rolls the waves loaded with bass frequencies, glitches and artifacts to create some gritty mysterious reliefs to the journey.

A seven track ambient album from K.Markov showcasing a selection from three of his existing albums – Organic, After the storm and Species, which you can find on his bandcamp page.
Following on from his first release on Kahvi under the name Phrulex (which was a single several years ago), and part one of the excerpts, K.Markov gives more of the detailed, progressive ambient work that appeared in part one.
Gently floating atmospheres, mixed with sweeping arpeggios and melodical interludes to keep you listening closely.
Sentimental Value is a record of which we fell in love from the beginning, with its particular feeling, its tranquility and its power, its making you travel gently. Everything is explained below by its author
I first started playing music back in 2014 when i was 16 as a drummer in a local Melodic Death Metal band. After going over 2 years with my band, i’ve decided to quit and start doing more projects on my own. I started a Grindcore band and joined several other bands/projects from Sherbrooke, going from Skate Punk to Rap, Black Metal and Screamo. After a year or so, I’ve decided to take a break from the local underground scene to start focusing more on my solo projects.
I first started experiencing with several softwares and analog equipement, but quickly went full on with DAWs, as i felt that i wanted to make music with the bare minimum equipement, due to, mostly, lack of space and money. I now work with FL Studio, Cubase 5 and Protools 12. The only hardware that i use is a 25 keys AKAI MIDI keyboard, a Behringer Xenyx 1002fx mixing board and a Novation Launchpad.
Sentimental Value as been composed between July 2017 and Febuary 2018. The title kinda speaks for itself, because every song as been written in connection with a very specific moment in my life. I really wanted to recreate and embody the mood and the atmosphere of these moments and shape it into music. I think is the closest way anybody could ever re-experience them. Sit back, put on your best pair of headphone and let yourself float into this mellow little journey.
“Gradient Descent” is the fourth Metalogue EP. Exploring variations on a single melodic theme, the record travels from dark cavernous ambience to precise digital structures, crossing through sweeping synthetic textures and industrial claustrophobia along the way.
Gradient Descent was written and performed for a Chaos Theory event headlined by Jarboe and Farther Murphy, at St Pancras Old Church, London on 23rd October 2017. The piece features custom made electro-acoustic instruments, field recordings and live electronics. The release on Abstrakt Reflections is a studio arrangement of the original material, integrating additional sound design and layers of live sound from the church performance.
Getting lost and trying to find serenity. Unable to stay calm even for a moment and the unquenched thirst to create new problems. An ear-splitting explosion and a sinful wave of aggression. The solitude and the awakening of the Beast.
“Sinwave”, the second album of Sinage, a neurotic and chaotic trip to the depths of the emotion and feeling. It’s a refined and melodic album filled with dance beats packed inside a unique sound aesthetic that clashes chiptune synths and rave sounds.
Single ini adalah versi edit/remix dari Sunmantra, trio leftfield elektronik asal ibukota. Jojo, Fritz dan Barhel mengambil lagu Seek Six Sick berjudul Antimacho Rockstar secara liar dari YouTube lalu menggubahnya menjadi perkakas lantai dansa bertemakan techno eksperimental/disko-post punk-new beat/ebm atau gaya musik-musik dansa lainnya yang menyampaikan kerasnya kehidupan. Acara dengan genre musik ini sedang berkembang secara signifikan dalam kurun dua tahun ini di seputaran Jakarta-Jogja-Bandung-Bali.
Dibandingkan dengan versi asalnya, remix Sunmantra ini memiliki gaya disko/techno minimal/elektro minor yang tingkat noise-nya lebih rendah dengan tata aransemen yang lebih linear. Repetisi dari potongan lagu asli, unsur elektronik ber-resonansi rendah dan lolongan frasa “Antimacho Rockstar”pun terdengar seiring naiknya tingkat efek delay/echo yang berharmoni dengan ‘acid line’ yang dihasilkannya mampu menghipnotis pendengar dalam lorong ber-strobo diselingi kedap-kedip lampu merah. Ini adalah musik kelab malam bagi orang-orang apatis dan depresi. Musik dansa untuk kaum anti sosial. Inspirasi atas bangkitnya kembali versi lain dari musik dansa elektronik indie/punk electro rock yang bukan metal.
Skena musik eksperimental terus mencari suara-suara dan teknik yang baru serta kemampuan pendengaran baru bagi pendengarnya. Suara lama diolah menjadi gelombang baru. Suasana aneh yang lambat laun secara intens menjadi sesuatu yang indah. Remix ini bukan untuk penggemar deep house, deep techno, deep trance, juga bukan musik kelab malam dengan drum kick macho tebal atau disko gitar wah-wah dengan ketipang-ketipung cerianya. Namun juga bukan hal yang terlalu aneh karena masih mempunyai kick, snare dan suara lain yang ritmis dan konstan yang bisa diikuti telinga dan otak dengan sederhana. Karya ini juga diproduksi/mixing dengan rapi sehingga terdengar jelas dan nyaman. Dansa atau tidak dansa, Anda patut mencoba menelusuri gelombang baru ini. —Aditya Permana (Dekadenz)
Time for a special and long overdue release here at noisyvagabond! For our 50th release we present a gigantic collection of tracks (43 to be exact for a total of 6 hours of music!) from Split Phase. Split Phase was a live electronic duo hailing from Upstate NY consisting of myself (c. ‘transient’ martin) and Mike McInotsh active for a period roughly through 2010-2014. For our live shows, we were joined by Nate Vanslyke on lights and visuals. I provided the musical backing via loopers and a plethora of synths and effect processors while Mike provided the rhythms via an acoustic and electronic drum kit. Split Phase was an attempt to make music in real time which generally was made with sequencers or computers and bring those types of sounds into an improvised live process. As such, the music lost some of it’s precision but gained much in the way of humanized passionate expression. Presented here is a small selection of the countless hours of recordings we amassed practicing and creating on a near daily basis. You will find an eclectic mix of genres ranging from jazz, funk, drum and bass, dub, techno, downtempo, and more as we were never interested in pigeonholing ourselves into any particular sound. I hope you can find something in this compendium that moves you. One day the fates will realigned and new Split Phase music will be churned out. Until then, ENJOY!
Acknowledgements: Thanks to Carmen Chiles for letting us include our remix of her track ‘Love is’ and Sarah Winton for providing vocals for ‘Compromise’.
The first release in 2018 came from Denmark. Jonas Reif provided us
three track EP. Svimmel (means dizzy): “I wanted this track to express shifting emotions, I also wanted to blend different signature elements of genres
such as acid, DnB, Breakbeat”. Faser (means phases): A movement through different states of mind. Flerform (means multiple forms): “I was inspired by 80’s aesthetics and
old skool funk, which I wanted to put in the context of acid/IDM”.
