“erasing memories” was an idea developed for music to live and die on stage. Taking the past concept of music that dies on stage, Carlos Suero composed this unique piece of one hour, with various segments within, for this purpuse only. But, after reconsidering the idea of losing these tracks for ever; and having talks with friends, he decided to release it in order to making it avalable for everyone that couldn´t make to that night.
The night was the concert played the 17/11/2018 and organised by RATORMOUTE in Madrid.
The day after he set up the instruments again like the night before and performed the same concert this time in the studio.
The music included here is without cuts or extras added, its is exatcly as it was the night before; live.
Recorded at HomeStudios (Madrid).
Mastered by CSH at HomeStudios (Madrid).
This album is about beat impressionism, when the beat does not make the rhythm, but the mood instead. Breakcore and IDM inspired mess of beats and breaks and plastic.
When I was a child I used to gather all the wooden, metal and plastic boxes to make my “drum set”. I played my drums with spoons and sang aloud: “The cat has cometh!”. My passion for rhythmic music never faded, so, after growing up I still gathered all wooden, metal and plastic samples to make my virtual drum set.
I like when the beat is not merely a metronome, even my favourite rock bands have drummer leaders – “Magma” with Christian Vander and “高円寺百景” with Tatsuya Yoshida. I like when the beat is flow, when it creates melody, when it gives tempo not only by beating the drum faster or slower but by creating the feeling of speed or chill. I do not intend to create a total abstract avant-garde mess, which ceases to sound musical, instead, I want to create the impressionist-like approach, when complex structures give rise to clear and almost tangible impressions.
This “beat impressionism” might sound a bit harsh to an untrained ear, because that is how massive plastic sounds like. Just like metal music is basically harsh rock, so my plastic music is harsh IDM.
Most of the tracks were created 15 years ago. Maybe they were ahead of time? Or maybe they sound like your childhood? Because they definitely sound like my childhood.
KMPST brings the best of the Moscow underground electroacoustic free improv tablet electronica and marks the beginning of a new exciting era on top-40.org with back-to-the-roots hidden gems, original hits, and more entertaining explorations of the unknown.
KMPZ SESSIONS are designed as an acoustic labyrinth without exits but with many escape routes through paradoxical gaps in the aural continuum. Primordial, almost shamanic rhythms meet futuristic mech-a-droids in the vortex of high-freq noises and digital glitches, Amnesia Scanner versus self-mutated Autechre audio algorithms, dark soundscapes, and Muslimgauze’esque faux ethnic vibes.
The opening track KMPZ 015, a rudimentary clicks’n’çutz dark breakbeat anthem, sends us off on a rather epic hour-long journey through an abstract experimentalist interacoustic universe. From suspenseful, uncanny deep dub pulsations on KMPZ 001 to a slowly unfolding, swampy bass micro-ambient soundscape KMPZ 004, with a slightly attenuated KMPZ 008’s distant motive and granular proto-rhythmic vibrations and entrancing melodies of KMPZ 012, KMPST presents a compelling yet highly abstract musical story.

Detroit sound artist and producer Rich Sudney goes dark this time with his release Autumn Rehearsal. Having a deeper sound then his previous releases, DF-5 takes a hibernating attitude fit for the winter months. Deep, dark and deliberate but not void of his signature musical structure. Few are more reminiscent of sound tracks from the movie Koyaanisqatsi. Others are just uplifting as usual. Rich Sudney directs us in his sound to ready us for rehearsal.

Santi’s original “Music, the Only Way” tells a playfully dystopian story: “In a not so far away retro-future, a group of self-aware, compassionate robots have taken upon themselves the task of resolving humanity’s oldest paradox: its tendency for endless destruction and chaos despite its longing for boundless creativity and joy.
After a thorough examination of humanity’s greatest attempts and defeats, they have come to a consensus. All other previous paradigms and executions have failed. Music is the only way to save the humans”.
In this special compilation which marks the 50th release of Tropical Twista Records, five stunningly diverse producers come on board and recreate their unique renditions of Santi’s dark yet light-hearted space odyssey.
Acknowledgments: Santi extends his special thanks to Ivan Palmegiani for his tasteful curation of this compilation.
This time around, the VA Christmas release is a more chilled out selection of tracks is mostly ambient or chill, with a couple of more beat driven tracks mixed in for good measure.
Mainly unreleased artists have been showcased this time around, with a few regulars (4T Thieves, Rephazer, Faex Optim) appearing and a lot of up and coming talent which may appear on Kahvi in the future. Designed to let you drift into your thoughts, imagining distant unknown places beyond the stars.
It’s the end of the year and as always we want to present something special to you.
SK’P is back with his detailed and clean sound compositions which already fascinate us, make us dream and forget the time. Better still, he brought a mutual friend with him this time. We knew the whole time that they fit together perfectly, but now we can experience how the completion of this connection finally takes place. We’re obviously talking about the ever more productive GESO, who in between his always fantastic visual appearances thought of something special for us and lets us immerse ourselves in some completely symmetrical 360º videos, interspersed with complicated details that we want to and can explore again and again – with a completely subjective perception and always different.
You know Sk’p and his precise micro cuts, squeaky clean beat works and joyful synth works. Put these two in a mixer and you have another fine release with infinite replay value that invites you to think about our prejudices about paradise, distant futures and multiple ways that we wish they hadn’t taken.
Here you can find the portfolio with all the 360 VR videos:

New perspective of things can be found by raising ourselves. From a terrace, a peak or imaginary places we seek contemplation as it is our creative nutrient. Unsettling times must be confronted on the sidewalk of music production. As citizens of the world we are being witnesses of agitation related to climate change, to a rearrangement of political forces and to socioeconomic inequity among a variety of intertwined elements that cause reflection. It is a complex scenario that leads forces of similar pulsation and that seems to motivate the efforts behind the sharp response in this fifth compilation of Modismo. This compilation joins multinational talents in a wide range of styles, and as a proof of clean intentions it releases music of such depth and quality available for free. A gesture of caring kindness unites these 21 musical statements in which humanity and the plotted electro-mutant sounds dance as a reflection of upcoming storms. The overflowed pessimism, the industrial protest, the revolutionary dance and the questiong of forms have a natural room in one of the most ambitious works created by this label. For its constant commitment with risk and quality this new compilation of Modismo can be considerated as a compulsory stop at the moment of photograph the state of arts in the contemporary electronic music.
A real musical adventure of experimental electronic music.
This e.p. is full of complex clicks, rhythmic structures and seductive glitches.Written, produced and arranged by Herre Jorna
I hope this music will give your life a nice Glitch and a lovely smile on your face.
This EP is dedicated to the loves of my life:

“Tethered” is Blockdata‘s first EP on Abstrakt Reflections. The EP digs into a variety of tempos and styles including lush analogue synth beds, foley recordings, haunting soundscapes, digitally sharpened rhythmics and some processed acoustic instrumentation at points.
Most of the synthetic instruments were created by Blockdata from the ground up over a number of years using Native Instruments Reaktor and the foley/acoustic instrumentation was made using a simple field recorder.
The EP includes six original Blockdata compositions and 2 excellent remixes from Ivan Shopov and Lokom.

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.

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.”
