Nueva referencia que nos llega desde Canada. “One Hundred Sights” es el nombre de este extraordinario EP a cargo del productor francés Geolm. 4 cortes de exquisita Electrónica donde los sintetizadores, ejemplarmente ejecutados, toman el mando para ofrecer un producto repleto de melodías espaciales. Cortes como “Outer Rim” y “Picking up signals” son un buen ejemplo de ello, pero es con “Cruise control battle” donde este EP alcanza su mayo esplendor. Sin más dilaciones te invitamos a que lo escuches y disfrutes tanto como nosotros.
Circadian is the sixth full-length album under name Thuoom. The starting point was an hour-long live improvisation played in a cave (Ambient Evening 6, Parainen, Finland). During this event, Tuomo did an a cappella piece while Barque Sound Experiment (aka BSE) played synthesizers. While for most of the tracks there are no hints of synths, two tracks feature BSE sounds extensively. Nevertheless, Tuomo considers this his first a cappella full-length. The end result features more relaxed ambient sounds than the previous release, Fokus.
Instruments used on this record: Human voice alongside Arturia Microbrute Analog Synthesizer & Korg MS-2000, all echoing in a cave.
“‘Dance’ is almost as old as man on earth. The fetus kicks the belly of its mother with rhythm. Sweet woddles to the meter of the music with the first steps. School partie include typical dances. From child to the older adult, everyone is dancing.
It is in these terms that I understand Música Inmobiliaria’s work – parallel project of José Gallardo -, titled ‘Dance’, as part of human reality, ‘Who could say that they have never danced?’
Now, the currents of dance music are extensive and for all tastes. What summons us is electronic. A rich sound of featuring classic analog sounds, old-fashioned electro along with vocoder, there is glitch, synthesized strings pads, powerful sinusoidal basses, in sawtooth and squares, TR-808 sound and a robotic voice that says ‘I want to dance’… Why not do it? It even has a rumba to Jean Michel closing the album to enthuse you.
An album with taste and flavor, with textures that, in an imaginative way, present us with a different, experimental and successful dance music. All in good time with Música Inmobiliaria.”
Nel caldo estivo arriva un brivido dark ambient, un giro nei meandri di incalcolabili pazzie e bianche muri che assetati aspettano schizzi di sangue. In Your Ears ha nuovamente l’onore di pubblicare una traccia di Snowfade aka Marco Grosso, una delle migliori menti elettroniche del nostro paese e non solo, ascoltando Solitude lo potrete capire molto bene.
In the warm summer comes a dark ambient thrill, a ride in the meanders of incalculable madness and white walls thirsty waiting for blood sketches. In Your Ears is again honored to publish a track of Snowfade aka Marco Grosso, one of the best electronic minds in our country and not only, listening to Solitude you can understand it very well.
Get the nightmare
The theme “World Wide Storms” for Into The Rift Volume Two, was inspired by looking at the world around us, the events and issues that are facing us. Whether those events are political, social, environmental, or something else, everyone has been touched by some looming storm in front of us.
Part of the fun in making a theme like this was that it left the artists open to interpretation. It could be literal, metaphor, allegory, or any of other ideas that the artists had in mind. And there are fifteen very different perspectives on the storms in our world today.
But there is also a consistency to this release. It’s not just a collection of recordings thrown together. Each artist has contributed a work that fits within the theme, making for a recording that is more experience than it’s predecessor.
The seventeen tracks on Into The Rift Volume Two represent a lot of different thoughts on the world, right now. But, I am optimistic about one thing: this is a work that will transcend current events.
Back with the announced full length album by Matti T from Finland, slightly increasing pace and going into Sunday chillaxing mood and offering soft drops and various film like atmospheres. We look back and try to look forward, inbetween worlds. NetlabelDay Release 2017. July 14th
О музыке надо не говорить, музыку стоит слышать. Так и с новым творением Pk jazz Collective. Safe From Harm, названный по названию одного из хитов Massive Attack, включает несколько кавер-вариаций на гремевшие лет двадцать назад Happy Mondays, и уже отмеченных Massive Attack. Но его прелесть не в этом, а в лирике. Где нет собственных текстов и используются стихи поэтов середины 20-го века, промышлявших на ниве подростковых размышлений о жизни. Песня “What If?” в которой лирический герой задает себе все возможные «Что если?» вплоть до «А что если я не выросту?» или «Мои родители разведутся» — достойный пример заимствования чужой лирики. Любовь, подростковые проблемы, ностальгия по детству — основные мотивы альбома. Однако, завершается он отнюдь нетревиально психоделической балладой, обрамляющей русскую народную сказку о хитром коте и доверчивых мышах в прочтении фольклориста Бориса Шергина.
И хотя на обложке увядающий цветок как символ недолговечности всего красивого, на этом месте неплохо бы смотрелся усатый мурлыка, именно такие ассоциации вызывает музыка этой пластинки.
EP of electronic/IDM sounds by Trillion Catz, a Berlin project based out of Lisbon. This EP is a CC celebration of the recent release of their full length album Vulgar available for purchase at bandcamp and itunes if you want to support the project financially.
A new artist comes to Kahvi now, Circa State appeared in my inbox recently with a nice chilled selection in the form of a demo which grabbed my attention from the start. A blend of ambient and emotional sounds, with more acoustic inspired elements, taking you on a journey through a summer field with the grass sweeping in the breeze. RnB beats threaten to blow away the gentle vibes, but never too overpowering.
A great introduction to the hot summer months by Circa State.
Escape Now!’s music went more and more microscopic in the years after 2003. Starting from the IDM electronica point he eventually arrived in the ambient domain. Lichtung is a fifty minutes laid back microscope universe, visualizing this path.
Please do not wonder, the release will be published as catalogue number 100, that was not set until now. A festive compilation was thought to go with this number but this was not realized so far, so let’s party and compile later, maybe with the 150 or 200 : )
For its 34th release, Da ! Heard It Records is warming up the machines to trace some new paths.
Impendulo is C_C’s new cassette.
Packaged in quasi-monochrome illustrations with quasi-absurd architectural tendencies, the visuals emphasize the kinetic art and foreshadow what one is about to hear: chain reactions and strange angles; it all moves and it all hits.
This cassette is an absolute beat garage!
Think of a little place where things are done by hand, geared towards total customization, fine-tuning; truly without concession and C_C is the boss. He’s the one with his nose under the hood and adjusting everything by ear. In total contrast with factory and chain-work sound, C_C knows how to use a system as Low-Cost as Low-Fi. Not afraid of getting his hands dirty!
The electronic sound is played from the fingertips, and it’s audible: the patterns aren’t dull and the rhythms brilliant.
It also plays with codes, and plays with them in a laid-back way, arm hanging out the window, headlights fully on. It advances tirelessly, entertaining without using, definitely more auto-reverse than auto-stop. Natural born bottom-of-time, C_C plays it in four-wheel drive, for all terrains, and completely versatile in all respects. He alternates straight hitting lines, feedback turns, and reverb drifts, and allows himself to ride right in the middle, his kick as pressed as the pedal, larsen melodies comfortably settled in the backseat.
At full speed, it’s blinking from all sides, counterpoint at every corner. With always one ear on the rearview mirror, and the GPS evidently out of order… drifting away from the roots is inevitable. In Impendulo, one is thus neither here nor there, but rather on unknown territory with no markers, never safe, but always sound. Welcome to the fourth (rid)dimension, this four-track game that summons hormones and neurons, active listening, and active dancing.
The drum is electronic and its skin is unbreakable, and in a thousand miles, it will still be playing, unfettered. One hit up, one hit down, the rhythmics spar without any low hits and most importantly without the rotundity that fishing for sound can bring. With C_C, it’s refined and chiseled by ear on the mixing side. The composition is stripped of anything superfluous, reduced to the bones, and you feel it in your bones: trans, love it or leave it.

Rain EP by alternative hip hop/electronica producer Torin Bell, is a collection of three short instrumentals filled with peace, tranquility and joy. The relaxed, unhurried pace of the music, playful melodies and unique chord progressions, definitely make you rest and catch the moment. Amazing tunes that stay with you long after listening.
“The project is centered around water and each track uses the rain within it’s backdrop to provide a soothing white noise alongside various synth waves to create the coming and going of the rain in the spring.
I wanted to create a atmosphere of peace and the rain usually helps in doing so.”(Torin Bell)
Rave Leviathan explores occult themes and its cornerstone is the witch-house movement. It’s darker, oozier, and meant to convey a theme of nihilism overall. Pieces of it move from slow depression heavy themes into fast paced and aggressive riffs. It is an overall movement in music dedicated towards keeping up the aesthetic and noise of those who seek music away form normalcy and with a bit of an obsession with the occult. As always, within the transgressive.
Genetic Transplant album by Hypercube can be described as an inner journey into osmotic abstract ambient defining the space over post-humanity evaporated circuits and multi dimensional genetic modified patterns, a way to explore unpredictable forms and intramural visions in relation to life and extinct systems.
The resulting music does at times resemble anxious rhythms and complex configurations of tranquillized expressions.
An electronic journey through various genres could define the sound in Electronic Senses by Skey. 11 tracks of Epic sounds, great melodic hooks and some very nice vocals appear in a couple of the tracks.
Electronic music performance for the NN Performing digital series by Massimo Ruberti in Old School da Anto Pub in Palermo during Nostress Netlabel partnership in MainOFF Festival 2017 organized by Brusio Netlabel. The performance consist of many electronic remixed tracks from Massimo Ruberti discography in Nostress Netlabel and not only.
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.
WENIG DUO | Studies on event-density
LIVE AT PENINHA
“Wenig Duo focuses on the activity of silence where the space works as an amplifier and assumes an important role in the performance.
With a crystallized language, the music of the duo is attentive to detail, it’s written and invites the listener for a greater awareness of the sound where this duo, formed by the musicians Guilherme Rodrigues and André Hencleeday operate.
The instrumentation is variable.”
“O duo WENIG foca-se na actividade do silêncio numa performance e no resultado deste enquanto amplificador do espaço.
A música do duo, já com uma linguagem cristalizada, é uma música atenta ao detalhe, de suporte escrito e que convida o ouvinte para um retiro de maior consciencialização do som do espaço, da música e dos seus envolventes.
É formado pelos músicos Guilherme Rodrigues e André Hencleeday e é de instrumentação variável.”

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.
Introspective drone / ambient / noise / shoegaze album. This album is about yearning for the deeper meaning of things, asking yourself if you really want to climb those steep slopes that drive you further and deeper into the mountain range. Why do we crave what is out of reach? Why do we want the unsustainable? What drives some to blindly follow their dream while others settle for the safe obscurity? Photo by Sandra Vallaure.
“Lampooni” is the debut EP by Hana Sent, our novel ghost electronic music composer. The release drives you through six sweet sketches of faint colors; crayon paints describing a candid and sunny world, not without some nostalgic and spellbound aftertastes. Some melodies recall the works by Conrad Schnitzler for the playful approach to electronic composition. “Lampoooni” alludes to an imaginary retro-gaming, dreamy sounds and candy worlds, mixed with casual acid trippy-house sometimes recalling the late eighties. A very fresh release by 51beats to celebrate the incoming spring season.
Channel Surfing is a quasi-vaporwave project. Meaning that it predates vaporwave, and was initially influenced by the glitch and idm scenes of the 90′s and early 2000′s. With Channel Surfing, the focus is on microhouse and shoegaze. On ‘Paradox In The Bathroom’. . . I took a detour, and focused on lyrics. This time, it was the political solitude of an uncertain future. The in-between moments, of both turmoil and tranquility in America. Sonically, ‘Paradox’ uses Sound Design as a songwriting tool. Drum machines were treated like synthesizers, field recordings were processed like guitars. It is a very environmental spin on the “rock formula”. Channel Surfing is the band from the Mojave Desert. The locus of Channel Surfing is “Ethereal Synthesis” in all it’s various forms. From album to album, the locus changes, falling together or falling apart, but the same ethereal techniques apply in different ways. Sometimes, outspoken and political, other times, quiet and interspective. Enjoy. . .
A “quipu”, was a method used by the Incas and other ancient Andean cultures to keep records and communicate information. In the ancient Quechua language of the Andes, “quipu” means “knot”. A Quipu is in fact a set of knotted loops, tied by a thicker rope supporting them.
Quipu is also a project created by Atome Primitf, a collective of musicians and “dreamers” from Europe, a project inspired by that same method of knots, stringing artistic ties and new collaborations, through cross-genre musical interpretations and audio-visual concepts.
In fact Quipu was born as an audio-visual concept. The four tracks of the EP started as original compositions of Atome Primitif, with the elements of voice, violin and acoustic guitar modeling an unplugged sound. Quipu traveled all around Europe, involving artists from different countries, each one adding their own personal knot, inspired by the compositions of Clelia Patrono.
Andrea Presicce aka No Finger Nails adds his own musical knot through his musical experience, ranging from Electronica to Dub. The EP consists of four remixed tracks, offering a very dub-ambient and mystical alternative, using the original organic sounds. The project expands also audio-visually, with videos and visuals being produced, on that same quipu idea. Dubophonic is very proud and honored to be part of this, tying its own knot in this continuously evolving project!
Szymkowiak Joseph and Eric Duriez are two sonic explorers who work alone or in collaboration to cumulate the energy from both of them – each one has his own personal way and point of view, but has a symbiotic conception of sound. They use electronics, pedal effects, guitar, bass, metal plate, spring instrument.
Gomon is the product of cold city sounds, which is mixed with guitar riffs and chthonic myths. The music of this project is a search for the atmosphere in the world of dreams for a breath of fresh air. The first album Kenoma comes from the faceless emptiness of human nature. We praise the biological body, its voice, its movements, which is decorated by plastic and metal. We bathe in post-rock among the stars, listen to the folk-echoes of our ancestors and descend into the depths of the subconscious with the help of ambient and drone elements.
Autism enters a cold, self-satisfactory state of no response to any attempt to contact, trying to believe there is no possibility for communication. The idea is progressing with a wrong assumption that mute doesn’t mean nonexistent, relying on Autistic thinking, assuming as if it is immune to an emotion. Realizing that it’s wrong leads to a colossal reaction, causing a worsening of the state of existing disorders to a complete malfunction of the whole thinking structure.
Structurally difficult and non-paced attacking rhythms, getting more complex and running from rules dictated by background structures, while those rules fading away, anxious melodies which are trying to compensate the constant urge to lose the control of composition.
aAirial, our resident minimal maestro, makes a welcome return to Kahvi with his spring inspired EP ‘Music for sunny days’. Seven tracks of gentle electronics and minimal sounds, describing that time between winter and spring when the sun gradually makes an appearance.
Subtle beats and delicate melodies echo throughout. Something gentle to ease us towards summer!
“Death Dubitabilis is sunny walk down gentle warm dreams over soft breeze. And then it all turns to shit. Dropped the really big one. Slowly led by the hand to give crushing sounds of reality pulled down up apart on insistence from gravity’s violence. And we still can’t find where we parked. The lousy future gets worst every time it’s here. Stuck in the Death Dubitabilis. Got no more cigarettes. Light years in puffy awed hell.”
J4ck Sh4rk open their wings and display the array of sounds that interests them. Tracks that show weight, such as “Longest Road” and “Blind”, and others have elegance and subtlety, such as “Preta Pretinha” and “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”. 2011 was the peak of sonic expansion and exploration.
4T Thieves es el productor a cargo de nuestra referencia número 87. Siendo un habitual de la escena netlabel, este productor nos ofrece un ejemplar trabajo de electrónica de corte ambiental con ritmos que fluyen a lo largo de una estructura en constante evolución. Dense un respiro y disfruten de Winter EP, donde el frío pasa a convertirse en un cálido comfort.
One continuous musical journey through Endless City, a dark and twisted place, where thinking differently is considered a Sin. Underneath it all lies a massive labyrinth – the only way to change anything in this world. Find the exit and change the world. If you dare.
Here you will hear aggressive rave beats, distorted synths and other electronic lo-fi sounds, mixed with some vocals here and there – music that will make you wanna lose your mind!
