This handful of sounds in musical format is anything but arid, since thousand of images do flourish and take place against to our psyche, as we go through the generous timing of the tracks.
Microscopic geometries perpendicularly pass through the space inhabited by omnipresent and opaque bass drums in black notes (as it has to be) which are several times fractured by resounding breaks that keep inviting us to a total immersion. There is no truce or carelessness. Everything is in its place.
The web is solidified and amalgamated by elegant melodies of overseas (Árido III). Other times there are distant voices (Árido II) which characterize the galloping plot that equally spill magic and celebration in an endless coven. Árido I puts us a muzzle and a leash to take us to a ride with an eternal arpeggio of cosmic horseback ride that is little by little being contaminated by weaves of liquid gas and noisy flashes.
The delivery is a resounding trip of oneiric minimalism with remarkable aquatic calling and architecture riddled with compressed concrete. Since minute 1 it warns that from here one does not come back with the same face as the one at the beginning of the trip.
A serious, meticulous, elegant and hypnotic work that invites to be listened with closed eyes, light off and a closed door.
The excellent remixes that complete this robust new delivery of Modismo provide spice to the total, but of course the dish can only be more filling at that level of genre.
“O detector de terramotos (earthquake detector) não é uma ideia minha. Alguém disse a frase e eu, por via de apropriação, dei-lhe novos significados. A audiência talvez encontre algo escutado, dito, visto anteriormente. Por fim, acrescentarei, que utilizei, no processo, uma técnica de colagem de livre combinação (de textos, filmes, música, conversas com pessoas conhecidas e desconhecidas, na rua, no café, pelo Skype e email, bem como conferências sobre ufologia, tecnologia e consciência e ainda numa visita ao veterinário).”
– Ana Carvalho
In attempt to connect deeply with nature Gilman Mom’s newly-released album, Revisionist History, is immersed in atmospheric field recordings and jazz-inspired drone. The album looks to delve into the embrace of a warm, youthful summer’s day and perhaps explore what mental state endured by such an environment.

‘Sounds to Ascension’ é um EP do projeto de música eletrônica e experimental Awake In The Dew que tem por base o álbum ‘Last Sounds to Ascension’, lançado digitalmente em novembro de 2015. O EP reúne os principais títulos do disco e traz as faixas na íntegra sem a sonoplastia contida no álbum.
A sonoridade de ‘Sounds to Ascension’ se volta para os gêneros mais experimentais da música eletrônica, como o dark ambient, drone, glitch e idm, que formam as influências trabalhadas dentro do projeto e contam com referências a artistas atuais como Access To Arasaka, Hecq e The Flashbulb, além de grupos clássicos como Autechre e The Future Sound of London.
Awake In The Dew foi criado em meados da década de 2000 na cidade de Maceió pelo produtor alagoano Diego Henrique. O projeto teve sua primeira fase entre os anos de 2007 e 2011, com uma sonoridade mais noise com bases em gravações lo-fi e conotações post-rock e psicodélicas. A segunda fase se iniciou em 2012 e já conta com quase uma dúzia de discos lançados, mais voltados para música eletrônica experimental.
O produtor Diego tem 31 anos de idade, cresceu ouvindo dance music e outros gêneros da eletrônica, até se interessar por sonoridades experimentais no final da adolescência. Autodidata, começou a se interessar por softwares de produção e edição sonora aos 17 anos de idade, época em que integrou o coletivo de DJs pragatecno em sua cidade, tocando suas próprias produções como DJ.
Atualmente, ele mantém outros projetos além do Awake In The Dew, nos quais ele desenvolve seu estilo particular e característicos em outros segmentos da eletrônica, seja voltado para pistas, seja misturado com elementos do rock, como pode ser conferido nos trabalhos do Airplanemusic, Hightech Factor e Plumarino.
Max Bober is a musician born in the windy south of Argentina, near Atlantic ocean and the Andes mountains. He studied violin, composition, philosophy and other interesting things in Buenos Aires. He is interested in experimenting with the ideas of silence, space, and resonance. Since 2017 he is living, studying and composing in Warsaw, Poland. When he is not thinking about music, or writing, or working, he likes to walk near the river and drink wine watching to the sunset.
Another set of post-everything impressive expressions in rock and roll vein for voice, casio keyboards, electron guitar, fuckton of pedals, choirs, samples. Dubbed by the artist, “psychedelic chaos-pop”
The second volume of collected early works spans the years 1994 to 2001, when I was twenty-three to thirty years old.
Most of these pieces are either unreleased or have been out of print for decades.
Some of my more drone-based work from this early period has ended up on this volume of work.Free to download for those who can’t afford it, or pay something if you can afford it and want to support what I do.
Celebrating our 20th release, we are proud to present this small masterpiece, the dirty and experimental “BAIXA QUALIDADE V. 2” (translating to Low Quality v. 2) from eletronic and hip-hop producer _isca_ ;
The project plays as a sonic fusion, throwing in vaporwave, chiptune, boom-bap – all with their respective distortions and deconstructions with amazing rhythmic quality.
An alien album, with features heche, fox, mestre chapeleiro and willy black — “Baixa Qualidade v. 2” defies the idea of a beat tape, playing with its clichés and resignifying them, with an unique personality and identity that brings us to the most different moments in the producer’s life, from his childhood to his adultship..
Turning Torso is an experimental producer from Mexico City who introduces a new rhythmic embodiment for the dancefloor of the future in his upcoming EP for xenonyms entitled “Never-ending Prototype”.
The 5-track release explores different hybrid atmospheric poles ruled by a palette of sequenced electrified textures and colliding pads that swarm with panned distortion. While some imaginary soundscapes might resemble freeform jazz with machines, the polyrhythmic structure of this techno-induced hypnotism provoke a corporal response suitable for club explorations.
A consistent feeling of ascension remains in the digital feedback and resonating shocks of subsonic frequencies without losing the oneiric and introspective qualities of Turning Torso’s singular approach to slow change & iterative music.
>From headphones to powerful sound systems, the active listening of this creative output reveal unexpected and transformative sound experiences of hedonism and liberation.
This EP marks a departure from the “usual” bolus sound of cavernous soundscapes and atmospheres to a more rhythmic structure, incorporating elements of the former. This style harks back to the previously released “beacon” EP – electronic percussion and granular synthesis – this direction was in the artist’s mind for a while. Playing with virtual modular synthesis of late (Solorack by Solostuff, VCV rack) and these patches have formed the backbone upon which the tracks of “confirm humanity” were created.
The music of oculoss is mainly of an atmospheric nature. Sometimes less is more, making his music ideal for listening while working, sleeping or doing other things.
In “Parallel Path” oculoss explores texture, consistency, and a type of variety that could be called subtle. This is not the utopian ambient of the typical soundscape artist. This EP is serious music for serious people.
La voix est le premier instrument avec lequel Töfie a composé. Sa curiosité la pousse sur la voie de l’instrumentation pour y transposer l’expérience vocale. C’est la naissance du projet Töfie, en 2012. Le logiciel Garage Band est le premier témoin de ses expérimentations pop et électroniques qui donnent lieu à la sortie d’un LP sur le label Linge Records.
Töfie prends un virage en épingle. Son electronica mute en une synth-wave sombre, lourde et blessée par des sons industriels, mais empruntant paradoxalement des formats très pop. Tout un éco-système de sons organiques et telluriques qui se confrontent à des sons digitaux, crus et agressifs, qui rappelleront sans doute ceux de Gary Numan ou Fever Ray.
Des textes en anglais, islandais, allemand et en français accompagnent l’exploration des synthétiseurs et d’enregistrements acoustiques transposés sur les rythmes tranchants, doux et totalement versatiles.
Nearly four years after we debuted our improvBloc series, the series that’s focused on improvisational sessions returns with a weird and wonderful installment by Eli & The Mannings (or EATM)!
Magical Cookies takes you on a sonic odyssey. One which can be summed up best by the following selection from the liner-notes… “Transitioning effortlessly across genres between (and sometimes during) songs, EATM explores elements of hip hop, rock, jazz, blues, soul, folk, pop, country, latin, spoken word, comedy, and other forms to create truly original, one-of-a-kind recordings.”
Enjoy the ride… it’s sure to be a fun one!
