Insect Life Cycles is Troxellemott’s debut EP. It will guide you through the process of holometabolous development of an insect, a track for each stage.
The music makes you feel the rustle of insect wings, taking away your human skin. Forms are crashed by the narrative, narrative breaks up by forms. Within the tracks architecture you can hear flinging and hesitations in the flow of natural processes. Track by track you’re invited to explore your personality antipodes and face your fears, as for ex. the artist’s primeval centipedes phobia.
Pierre Guilhem il faisait des dessins mais aussi de la musique alors voilà son album de Dub qui date de 2005, il l’avait fait en CD et Claude Biscuit en avait un exemplaire qu’il a maintenant égaré. Mais Reno Leplat Torti nous en a retrouvé un que voici, la pochette scanée est à venir, car voici une detestable miniature qui a pourtant son charme. Un album réalisé avec un synthé (Casio, il nous semble) et qui a été composé à Nîmes. Il a d’abord été promu sur la page de Nunu Editions, autour de 2005. De la dub pour plage à savourer entre amis, avec un pastis, dans la mesure du possible.

Ayato & Kecap Tuyul met in 2008 and then started to collaborate regularily, mostly by file exchange. Flowers in the Trashbin was their first common work of this kind, a psychedelic sonic trip haunted by whispers and noises from weirdly tuned/prepared guitars, lo-fi electronics, & ghostly voices. Sometimes melodic, sometimes more abstract, always imaginative, these tracks were recorded and mixed between 2008 and 2009. The resulting album was released in march 2010 by HAK lo-fi record as a limited edition CD-R with a special rectangular cardboard cover that has been out of print since a long time. 8 years after both musicians still like a lot this album and would like it to share it with a broader audience.
We return after a break with a new release of the mexican producer already known in Nulogic Netlabel as In Vitro. Creator of the wonderful label Breathe, In Vitro offers us a fascinating Ep of four tracks whose main pattern is based on the roots of Techno. But there is much more than Techno in this work. Brushstrokes of a precious electronics, deep bass lines and a groove that dances on the edge of the dark side. These are just some of the surprises that “Transdimensional Woods” offers us.
Collection of calm electronica. Synthetic sounds are mixed with natural piano, self-made flute and field-recordings to keep harmony and add futuristic flavour. Final track is dedicated to Gennadiy Podvoiskiy.
“Microorganisms” is a project that focuses on the innovation and composition of new sounds constructed from the cultivation of bacteria and fungi. A laboratory endeavor headed by the artist, based on recording the growth of organisms and their patterns of movement, which are then processed to give rise to sounds and, eventually, music.
While keeping technology very close at hand, Cass Nova also turns to more indigenous sounds, delivered by instruments with Latin American roots (such as Kultrún and Trutruka), which are recorded organically and which coexist in their respective musical pieces with scientific experimentation.

We welcome the first release of french artist (writer and musician) Aloyse. His refined electronic music evolves between ambiguous shifts and clear lines, using fuzzy textures, subdued melodies and sparse, fragmented beats. This diversity of approaches is also reflected in the reinterpretations by 8 other artists who remixed the 4 original tracks :
Stoé OrkéoPresentation of the project by Aloyse : ” Sound of the selves is a sound project between field recording and the art of sampling designed to be listened to during a stage performance. Shown in various places in Paris the performance “Parachute”, presented by the theatre company Machine, consists in a mobile dome under which one comedian faces one spectator. A couple of minutes to save the world from its delusions, a moment of intense intimacy before the world and its chaotic noise repeat themselves.
Sound of the selves is also an invitation to think and recreate the bound between the voices of the world and the voice of the machine: 8 musicians with variegated backgrounds offered an edit of one of the tracks in order to push one step ahead the endless communication between the creative forms of life.”
The latest addition to xenonyms’ catalogue is the debut release from L3T3 a 23 year old producer from the city of Cracow, where he lives and creates. CARE EP is an exciting piece of contemporary music influenced by various genres such as witch house, coldwave and experimental music.
L3T3 carefully selects his sounds on this EP in an attempt to render the processes that take place in his body, mind & soul. His music also offers a personal take on the concepts of post-humanity, the expanding of sensual experiences and a new era of hi-tech.
L3T3 is also a member of the OVER SEERS collective.
vulnerabilis (remixes) is a remix album by closeyoureyes. The album includes remixes from artists from all over the world in different genres from ambient and noisy soundscapes to more classical pieces with violins and pianos. The album keeps the melancholy mood that was declared on “vulnerabilis”, but reveals new potential of original tracks.

Frozen Clinamen is a new serie of works started by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) in autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions. Frozen Clinamen #1 was recorded and mixed between november 2017 & june 2018.
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.
Imagine a world where the sounds of sixties testcard music and the sort of music played between working mens’ clubs acts had been picked up by aliens and then sent back to earth for an intergalactic knees-up around the Hammond organ….
Difficult? It may not have been Montague Armstrong’s intention, but that’s what this delightful, effervescent concoction of tunes makes me think of. Jude Cowan Montague’s effortlessly cheerful tunes and Matt Armstrong’s always immaculately well-placed electric bass make this an unusual, but definitely desirable item from Linear Obsessional and also marks the third release in LinOb’s new Cassette Imprint series.Released as a professionally duplicated cassette with a picture by Katy Binks and design by David Little,and as a free/name-your-price download.
A 2018 Netlabel Day release – a compilation of Slovenian artists, with many original works that span a wide spectrum of electronic music genres: from noise and sonic art, via bass, breaks, all the way to acid techno. The concept of the compilation is to bring attention to the conflict between necessity of free culture and enclosure of culture by copyright law. The conflict which is temporarily solved by Creative Commons licences.
An act of publishing music under the conditions of a free culture licence is a political act. In times of continuous global expansion of individualism which is often tightly connected to capitalist exploitation, it communicates a clear message: a desire to build a collectivity. For an artist acting on her own, or a small niche label, it is a significant move towards creation of equitable access to works of art. This act is an actual and concrete contribution to a pool of culture shared by all, an entering of a work and its creator into a collective consciousness. It is not a supression of individual desires and rights – as would false dichotomy of collectivism vs individualism perhaps imply. Instead it is an opening of creative process towards the global community and the public. It is an abandonment of a phantasm of fame and fortune based on maximisation of profits, exploitation of copyright, and intellectual property. Publishing one’s work as free culture is an action of an individual desiring to communicate her art with a collective humanity. It is an intentional gift to any and every potential individual who thusly belongs to a global collective of humanity and is empowered to follow her individual creative paths: listening, learning, composing, reworking, remixing, and sharing.
Access Frame is a series of compilations of adventurous music published by Kamizdat under a Creative Commons licence on 14. July – International Netlabel Day. It tries to establish a practice of thinking critically about access to, and distribution of, art. It poses a question: what is the frame through which we are allowed, and able, to access culture? How is it created, by whom, and can such frame of access be modified and transgressed?
Today, Donnie Ozone continues his tradition of dropping Netlabel Day goodies for all of you to enjoy. Not sure if it’s this era of orange “presidents” and “fake news” getting to him or not, but with End of the Show (Mister Name) Donnie explores some darker territory than we’re used to hearing from him. Whatever it is… it sure makes for one hell of a listen! Don’t sleep!
Another dope one, Donnie! Thanks for delivering flavor for Netlabel Day!
