these are the darker sides of justin james a.k.a. drmlgcc: atmospheric and dense, yet spacious at the same time. three tracks, located somewhere between musical architecture and spontaneity, are the building blocks of “treading”. justin guides us through sounds as diverse as can be. they are at times repetitive and minimal, ambient and floating, experimental and playful. they are organic and synthetic, wild and fragile, and occasionally steeped in krautrock improvisation.
all of this forms the basis for drmlgcc’s sound stories – his slowly evolving, acoustic tales.
it took him quite some time to complete this release, let us spend all the time necessary to be taken away, to experience the three tracks thoroughly.
Music, made deep in the woods.
The big rabbit invites you,
to listen to the sounds of the creek,
the trees and the birds.
This release is impressive in some ways. You see the creek depicted on the cover artwork? It’s one of the artists favorite spots to chill and to create music. He produced all the music in the forest using a tablet computer, making most of the tracks in the stunning forests around the albums namesake ‘Chiquesalunga Creek’.
And the artist is none other than one of the root free Netaudio stars online – Transient. Having released last year on Phonocake as Beat.Dowsing we now connected again to bring you his new seven track album under his original moniker.
And that’s not all! You are invited to remix and explore the tracks! — the source files which can be opened in Sunvox are included – a first for Phonocake. Please send any remixes to the artist and to us. Contact and instructions are included in the Source files directory.
The following EP appeared in my mailbox recently, and so impressed with the tracks that the VA for 2013 has now been moved to a later release date. Tetarise is the artist, you may be familiar with previous releases on netlabels from him. Every release is extreme high quality with some of the finest sounds I’ve heard from a long time.
Orange Mood is a six track EP of such epic quality, I think this will be on your permanent playlist for years to come. Amazing arpeggios mixed in with epic pads and basses create a feel good and certainly mindblowing sound we’ve not heard at Kahvi for quite some time (I think the last EP to do this was Plokcity by Berestez which everybody was taken with).
Track of choice for this new Tetarise fan is most definately Aquamarine, which is just.. fantastic. Enjoy this release and see you next month!
Activité Animale is an obsessive and heady album organized around nine tracks (and one bonus !) with a crescendo intensity promising a paroxystic transe.
This second opus brings us in a mystical adventure carried by a brutal and heavy bass tainted of an ingenious mixture of stolen animal and sciencefiction sounds. A well orchestrated alternation of organic and synthetic sounds evolving on rhythm form IDM to techno and disco to rockabilly.
Activité Animale tells us about transformation from man to animal, a frightening absurd metamorphosis creating a necessary humility to an open travel where everything is possible. Consider this album as a skillfully build up journey releasing your deeper animal instincts.
In fact Activité Animale is first if all an invitation to discover the « galactic zoo » universe of Marc de Blanchard, kingdom of laser tigers and leopards hearts !
Within this 22nd release, Da ! Heard It Records is promising once again a nice sound and visual adventure. Prepare your grooming to a kicky expedition trough the farthest reaches of your animality.
If you’re a follower of the Kahvi facebook page, you’ll know that we love this particular artist and the works of art they create. So I’m extremely happy to present the latest EP from the one and only Yimino!
If you’re a fan of Boards of Canada (if you aren’t why not?) then you’ll recognise some of the qualities from two of the tracks (Joseph and the title track). Sentimental atonal keys in the traditional Boards of Canada style, sweeping analogue warmth and melancholic feelings.
Check out Yiminos latest album Throwing Shade for more fantastic tracks on Bandcamp.
Track of choice has to be Baby BC3’s Ascent with its progression, curious choice of samples used for the percussion and subtle pads and epic bass.

The drums of eternity chime through the floodgates of the international Cosmopolitana. Crossover of the culminating history in sound and imaginery. Transit.
adamned.age thematizes her explorations in the artistic metropolis Berlin, as a frame for her delighting album of hard to categorizable electronic music. Her up to now ways shine to be woven in her tracks, her drum playing skills meet the Piano and post classical influences.
We finally have a new release for you. Now from Lithuania our friend and great musician, Esse, gives us an album with four songs full of sounds, textures and rhythms. The beats invite us to shake our body and to travel with our minds freely as the air … and the question is: who does not want to feel so free? The only thing I can tell you is download Breez EP and feel the vibes..
Night. A small but beautiful window of exclusive light, the last active window in a dark city, showing the attic of a poor but genius inventor, playing piano, while the transmitters send out the frequencies via fm radio, masked informations of future Wu Wei resistance.
Some of you will already know [mikra]’s releases from the netlabel world. If not please await a full length sample piano synth mashup collage album creation of hope, deconstruction, light and shadows. Slightly spooky at some points, but the musical n electronica love lets you keep touch to the air.
electronica meets ambient on a trip through time and sound.
from berlin to düsseldorf via paris and the uk.
from the 70s to tomorrow.
from modernist architecture to sound design.transforming imagery to music
in a world of lights and glass.

breakcore from SW France”Our newcomer KMS lives in Toulouse countryside. His first release is heavy amen breakcore in its classical form with a great variety of ambiances & samples, from trip hop standard to frenchy hardcore ragga, from weird glitches to metal riffs. A nice corruption of sounds.”

Horror Pleni is experimental techno in contemporary form of minimalism, between Actress and Four Tet, but it crumbles in the subsoil or better in underworld red as blood. The album carries the listener in psychedelic fogs and isolate atmospheres, while the incessant advance of 4/4 gets more granitic. The moving through the nine tracks is made by stable and inescapable steps, between clear and obsessive visions of the past and noising dreams for men from the future. Mind is free to fly, while body slides through seediest part of hell. The album begins with a palpitation “Wasted Summer”: something got wrong and rhythm chases changeable and enraged, with heavy pace. “Dreaming Baby Balcony” is light and shadow, between acid rays of sun and rasping wind, under an orange sky. “Live Twice” converts in sound two beings in opposition: sweetly gloomy melody and frenetic rhythm fuse in balanced contradiction. “Inside a Candy” is a scary trip who first digests you and lately spits you in a highly toxic mixture. In the very middle of the album, “Leave the Land” is a fugitive heart from its missing beat, in the Space. With the unique vocal of the album, “Rana Delay” it’s a pause from obsessive atmospheres, replaced with gothic taste for a while. “Horror Pleni” condenses all suggestions in stratified and chasing emotions. “Sidi Bouzid to Cairo” (Checkpoint 303 reworked) doesn’t take prisoners, shooting on sight in 4/4. “Krome” says goodbye to the first artistic album from Idga, getting to subsoil by procession of killer percussions. Mind is already free, just remains sinking body. [Maracuja&Plasman]
This is a very important release for us, since it marks an important step into the most modern music releasing approach. You can use this music whatever you like as far as it is for a private use/context. Please, feel free to copy-paste-send this release to your best friend or dj and to play it during your own private parties –>enjoy it !!
At the same time these works are regularly registered to the Danish Collecting Rights Society “Koda”, which will collect royalties in the behalf of the artist/composer: IDGA, and the publisher: 51beats, when this music will be employed in any commercial context.
We believe this is close to the ideal approach toward the most intelligent way of publishing music and arts, today.
