Potential DifferenSe

“Coinchain”

Chains of musical events collected in the album. The regularities set by the author are reflected in the listeners and create a pleasant, mysterious world of sound experiments and abstractions. Technical futuristic music with pleasant consequences.

Ministik – Meridian

[EEM027]

Ministik

“Meridian”

Maximal techno and beyond. Filled with polyrhythmic melodies and offscale sounds, precisely controlled bass-lines, massive kicks and sharp percussions.

Scratchy analog electronic ruminations from a quiet veteran Ministik, that ebb and flow like natural processes of evolution, growth or/and decay.

Perception and alienation, with (re)use of techniques, sources, and designs are the main features in his work expressing the world as the artist sees it.

Strange shifting rhythms, finely shaped clouds of noise, and distant techno patterns. Ministik is not a normal DJ. This craftsman will invite you to lose yourself in the depths of the abstract sounds and surreal melodies on concrete based drum patterns.

Various – Trip to Proxima B

[397]

Various

“Trip to Proxima B”

This years VA Christmas release has a space theme. Taking you from here to far away Proxima B, being space themed we have some epic ambient passages (drifting through space) mixed in with some IDM beats and melodical work (as if a transmission from earth fades in, and you’re able to break the silence and tranquility).

As usual a showcase of unreleased artists, the best submissions of the year. A particular favourite track is by Rephazer, which is a remix of Honeyboy Edwards ‘Catfish Blues’. This is featured with special permission of Document Records, and I think it’s fantastic and fits the theme of the whole VA perfectly.

Enjoy this amazing compilation and see you in 2018!

“reCycle 2”

As Thuoom closes his second grand cycle in order to begin a studio hiatus, there are two compilation albums released simultaneously.

“reCycle 2 is a compilation album that draws together a bunch of unreleased tunes that I composed during my second grand cycle (2013-2017). These 13 tracks didn’t fit on any album I released during this period but deserve to be out there nevertheless, showcasing different sides of my style of electroacoustic music.”

Number Eleven – Strict

[EEM025]

Number Eleven

“Strict”

Damaged with disorders, constant reconstructions, and wrong decisions, while losing the ability to dictate your own rules, Strict falls into a state of attacking everything that could lead to a failure, introducing a crude self-defense mechanism of attacking everything that is interfering with principles of existence. All this has the potential of destroying all bonds and connections, dismissing the opportunities, just to find the cause of disorders, ripping every reason of existence just to have an answer.

Regained, recuperated anger and blasts combined with illogical analytic attacks, resulting in a powerful complex forge of rhythmic structures which are hard to stand and fathom, coupled with the angry synthesis of orchestral and electronic surges of extreme insanity and sadness put at the precision of a scalpel.

Kinza

“Sei Shin-Byoin”

An interesting and slightly different release this time from guest artist Kinza.

Some elements of oldskool 90s techno appear in this quirky but refreshingly interesting 6 track EP, even some kind of avante garde (reminiscent of some John Cage-type) nuances, but they all ‘add up’ into a nice, cohesive track… challenging to begin with, yet drawing you in as they progress.

Track of choice is Here we go again, which starts off in a very oldskool melody kind of way, then moves into small breaks and then ends with a mix of c64 sounding arpeggios and a 4/4. Great stuff!

Yomgaille – Repetition and Motion

[394]

Yomgaille

“Repetition and Motion”

It’s been a long while since Kahvi went back to it’s roots, and this guest artist defines the sound that made Kahvi originally.

Oldskool tracks brought up to the 21st Century (yes, Kahvi started in the 20th Century!) with the latest synths and sounds, but in a similar style to the old tracker scene that kicked off back in the late 80s.

Yomgaille with his EP Repetition and motion shows there are plenty of diverse textures and themes from those days, but the oldskool vibe is there throughout, giving you a taste of nostalgia if you’re familiar of those bygone days, or a fresh example if you’re a newbie. For this oldskooler, tracks A, B, C bring back that reminder of the good old days in the late 80s when trackers ruled the scene.

Fingerflood

“Beats And Stabs And Kick In Four”

Fingerflood is an electronic music project born as a part of the many musical extensions of Gaetano Fontanazza.

What we have in this debut release, named “Beats and Stabs and Kick in Four,” is the strong intent to basically dive into the fat obscure electronic moods of dub techno, somehow near to the Berlin scene if you like. The release has an ideal split in the middle of its playlist, switching from dub techno to more dub idm-oriented tracks.

“Gimo”

Palm Era – Gimo

Palm_Era (Claudio Cisterna) is a chilean producer from Santiago. A long-standing electronic music producer, he had been publishing under the netlabel Impar and the record label U-Cover from Belgium under the alias Flipper, a project that is closer to IDM. Later under the alias ‘Chiodata’, he immerses himself more into the experimental side of music and releases some of his works under the Irish record label Fort Evil Fruits and Cocodriller. He has also developed other projects such as ‘Jon Claudio’, a fusion between electronic music and Krautrock. Palm_Era released his album called ‘Coincidental’ under the record label Illuminated Paths from Florida, USA in 2015. He has also collaborated in compilations that have been released by the netlabel Modismo and netlabel Epasonidos. These days, he is presenting ‘Gimo’, his first publication under Modismo which travels between diverse rhythms built with complex and yet innovative structures. ‘Gimo’ essentially takes us into a profound and flavorful trip where basslines and synths that are analogically worked combine. In this work, Palm_Era reveals his good taste and skills. The way to approach percussion in this record excels due to its production duty and Latino sense. Samples lead to a trance that is hard to get rid of and melodies gleams at the right time, as well as the details in experimentation. All this results in a very refreshing and futuristic album that will stand out in time without a doubt.

Rephazer

“Holiday Mixtape”

There’s no doubting that todays music technology is powerful and versatile and Rephazer shows us how powerful with his EP he called the ‘Holiday Mixtape’

And it’s just that, a mixtape (or sketches) created while on holiday at the various locations in the track names (I’m guessing). Created entirely on one single piece of Swedish Engineered hardware (from the guys that made the Sidstation way back when) called the OP-1 (for those listeners interested).

Rephazer creates some fantastic moody, detailed and atmospheric Boards of Canada inspired tracks. Perhaps from the same sound palette for each track, but all with a chilled out vibe. Summer is drawing to a close but kick back and relax beside the pool listening to Rephazer!

MRTN CSTR

“Arquitectura espectral”

MRTN CSTR – Arquitectura espectral

‘Arquitectura espectral’ is the second work by sound artist MRTN CSTR (Martín Castro) from Córdoba, Argentina for netlabel ‘Modismo’. In this EP made up of three tracks we are able to appreciate and enjoy once again digital atmospheres which are characteristic in his musical duty: gliding melodies, delicate rhythms, fine atmospheres, counterpoints. Martín builds his songs from technology, he experiments with creation of waveworms, sound synthesis, complex structures created with specialized sequencers and instruments for the software Reaktor. However, the results are far from being robotics or dehumanized because the structures (the ‘buildings’ of this architecture) become cozy, puzzling at the same time and profound, inviting us to inhabit them. Moving musical ideas based on algorithm and mathematical formulae from theory to practice tends to be a challenge that is rarely well resolved, as elevating a structure from paper to physical reality, and by ‘well resolved’ I mean experimenting the beauty of a good listening at last, the pleasure of self-abandonment to contemplation beyond the techniques or technologies utilized for its construction, which it is fully accomplished in ‘Arquitectura espectral’. As a good sculptor, Castro reveals the shape of his compositions from the development of sound layers that are added, subtracted, that interact and move around space, generating tensions and distensions, creating sounds-cells and sonic-organisms pieces that evolve in their route. This is the difference between the robot and its perfect and synchronized movements, versus the organic bodies-muscles with their subtle differences and their impossibility of doing exactly the same, the same way, all the time, where one could be more efficient than the other, but never more interesting to contemplate or, in this case, to listen.

M̼sica Inmobiliaria РDance

[pn122]

Música Inmobiliaria

“Dance”

“‘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.”

Channel Surfing – Paradox In The Bathroom

[LBN039]

Channel Surfing

“Paradox In The Bathroom”

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. . .

[EEM020]

Number Eleven

“Autism”

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.

“Maddest Sanity”

What happens when a human being spends his whole life in a cave without contact to the outer world and after going out the first thing he does is music? Something like this album happens. It’s mad because beats and melodies are mad – one moment they are drifting far away like a foggy dream, the next moment they are coming back and walk towards you on their massive wolfram pillars. But they’re sane because everything is well structured. Even the seemingly insane rhythmic structures of Innner Peece are quite simple at heart.

Isn’t it too simple? Made with a 10 year old software from basic 10 year old samples? Consider it like a fossil from times when the Matrix was still something new and sensational, and everyone was still listening to trance, not psytrance – the original trance. Like a can with a sample of air conserved with those moments.

Every track is a separate composition, every track has its own unique sound and mood, consider this album a compilation of 10 different stories. And even more – each of them has its own hand-drawn artwork which also is an anachronism in this computer graphic ruled world. Artworks are like impressions that pop into an abstract mind after listening to the sounds.

[M023]

Blit

“Fauna ficcion”

Blit – Fauna ficción

Blit is a well-known talented chilean producer who adds to the catalog of Modismo with a new proof of his versatility.
‘Repite’, track that opens the album, manages to outline the ground in which ‘Fauna Ficción’ moves, as a smoke screen we pass through to go all over a work where experimentation in electronic music is addressed with a ludic spirit.
This way, he is able to approach these compositions to a more restless instrumental pop, crossing over intricate keyboard sounds at dark low frecuencies that works as counterpoint. It is a careful production of the rhythmic patterns that sounds updated with contemporary urban rhythms and with a strong accent on hip-hop derivatives.
The centerpiece of this Blit’s new delivery are the three parts of ‘Exilio’, being the second one the moment in greater tune with the dancefloor. The album closes with ‘Morel’, a track that seems to recall Richard D. James’ legacy, though it ends up shaking the nostalgic off with a powerful rhythmic dose.
In less than 20 minutes ‘Fauna Ficción’ succeedes in introducing us into a world that catches us, captivating our ear with fresh sounds and keeping our feet in constant motion thanks to its playful beats. Seven tracks that only confirm Blit’s huge potential and the good times for the electronic music production that prevails in today’s Chile.

Tracks like the title track ‘Off Season’ (and accompanying video which is featured on our Facebook page) make for a fantastic EP. Enjoy!

It’s Alkor. No need to say anything more! Always producing professional work, with amazing quality and depth, and Where tomorrow ends is no different.

Check Alkor’s previous releases on Kahvi and listen from start until finish and you’ll hear a clear theme throughout, but also an evolution of sound.

Where tomorrow ends is a great blend of epic sounds, layered and subtle, with detailed beats and ambience. Certainly a welcome addition to the collection!
