Rephazer – Holiday Mixtape

[390]

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!

nwonknυ – Castaway

[EE029]

nwonknυ

“Castaway”

This is what surrounds you and what you cannot escape from. Broken feelings and abandoned inner worlds. Dead hopes and forgotten desires. This is what you get when you are frank and open to the world. Despair, aggression and numbness mixed together here in three tracks.

Roedor – Simbiosis

[MNE 009]

Roedor

“Simbiosis”

Monofónicos presenta el regreso de Roedor con su nuevo álbum Simbiosis.

Tras su segundo trabajo “Onirismo” publicado en 2013, no había vuelto a salir de la madriguera el Roedor. Al parecer había estado combinando nuevos sonidos todo este tiempo, hoy condensados en un álbum que aunque mantiene ciertas reminiscencias a objetos encontrados y la grabación de campo, viaja en sintes y ritmos que abren nuevos panoramas en su sonido.

“Simbiosis es música hecha con todo lo que aparezca. Es encuentro, diálogo, intercambio, mezcla. De sonidos, de sueños, de vidas, de objetos; de máquinas, paisajes, noches, silencios, recuerdos, sonrisas; datos, formas, colores, amor.”

MRTN CSTR – Arquitectura espectral

[M024]

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.”

TNKS – Nostalgic Happiness

[SCM-1701]

TNKS

“Nostalgic Happiness”

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.

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. . .

Number Eleven – Autism

[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.

eww – Maddest Sanity

[EEM019]

eww

“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.
