This time around, the VA Christmas release is a more chilled out selection of tracks is mostly ambient or chill, with a couple of more beat driven tracks mixed in for good measure.
Mainly unreleased artists have been showcased this time around, with a few regulars (4T Thieves, Rephazer, Faex Optim) appearing and a lot of up and coming talent which may appear on Kahvi in the future. Designed to let you drift into your thoughts, imagining distant unknown places beyond the stars.
It’s the end of the year and as always we want to present something special to you.
SK’P is back with his detailed and clean sound compositions which already fascinate us, make us dream and forget the time. Better still, he brought a mutual friend with him this time. We knew the whole time that they fit together perfectly, but now we can experience how the completion of this connection finally takes place. We’re obviously talking about the ever more productive GESO, who in between his always fantastic visual appearances thought of something special for us and lets us immerse ourselves in some completely symmetrical 360º videos, interspersed with complicated details that we want to and can explore again and again – with a completely subjective perception and always different.
You know Sk’p and his precise micro cuts, squeaky clean beat works and joyful synth works. Put these two in a mixer and you have another fine release with infinite replay value that invites you to think about our prejudices about paradise, distant futures and multiple ways that we wish they hadn’t taken.
Here you can find the portfolio with all the 360 VR videos:
A real musical adventure of experimental electronic music.
This e.p. is full of complex clicks, rhythmic structures and seductive glitches.Written, produced and arranged by Herre Jorna
I hope this music will give your life a nice Glitch and a lovely smile on your face.
This EP is dedicated to the loves of my life:
Wendy, Laura and Patty.
“Tethered” is Blockdata‘s first EP on Abstrakt Reflections. The EP digs into a variety of tempos and styles including lush analogue synth beds, foley recordings, haunting soundscapes, digitally sharpened rhythmics and some processed acoustic instrumentation at points.
Most of the synthetic instruments were created by Blockdata from the ground up over a number of years using Native Instruments Reaktor and the foley/acoustic instrumentation was made using a simple field recorder.
The EP includes six original Blockdata compositions and 2 excellent remixes from Ivan Shopov and Lokom.
A warm welcome back to Jim Black, who seems to appear with a large selection of tracks a couple of times a year.
If you’re not familiar with Jim, he manages to create the vibe of the classic early 90s techno/IDM roots perfectly, bringing back feelings of nostalgia to those who listened to Kiss FM (London) and DJs like Colin Favor.
This time around we have a seven track ep to ease you towards the party season, block driving beats, four to the floor, but with a 21st century edge.

A dense darkness lifts your soul to sink into a velvety oblivion. Perhaps a little exaggerated, but in a way it could approach the definition that Steel Drama would give to their own productions. With this first EP entitled as themselves, Steel Drama are presented with four tracks of dark, epic and cinematic electronic music. Relax, turn off the light, turn up the volume and let yourself go.
Terranean Recordings bolsters the roster with the first outing by hot-blood Half-Lifer, presenting six mucky fusions of industrial spoil and sound system technology misuse. Working back to back with Luke Lund, they open up a caustic rift to a world of adulterated electronics, spawning a slanted vision of rhythmic solutions lugged from the bruxist fringe of the ‘floor.
We kick off with Luke’s helpings of gut-punching pressure. “Pusher” balances with tricky percussive odd-time sleights and ‘woofer bombs while “Blazed” veers off the atmosphere to a frenzied narcotic mania twisting samples of wheezer laughs. Fun’s over and an air of darkness enters on “Dregs” with its ear-shredding skree.
Passing the ball to Half-Lifer; “Dump Truck” and its razor sharp slashes, skeletal patterns and precise kick drum weight. Corrosive slurry textures dominate on the crunched out roughage of “Trash Compactor”. The EP signs off with nigh-beatless “Under” full of dread, tectonic low end movement and carefully placed shudder-inducing No U-Turn -esque shockout stabs.
All foreshadowing the imminent Half-Lifer debut album “Trigger Stacking” on Barely Here, of course.
Unlike plants, mushrooms cannot synthesize their own food from the sun’s energy. They lack chlorophyll – the substance which permits plants to use sunlight to form sugars from the water and carbon dioxide in the air. Mushrooms therefore had to develop special methods of living: symbiosis, saprophytism and parasitism.
Most of the mushrooms growing on the forest floor are intimately linked to trees by symbiosis. This association, called mycorrhiza, occurs between the root ends of a tree and the vegetative system of a mushroom. Mycorrhiza benefits both organisms: there is an exchange of nutrients, one providing to other what it cannot synthesize or extract from the soil by itself. In general, the mushroom helps the tree extract minerals and water from the soil; in exchange, the tree supplies the mushroom with sugar compounds (carbohydrates).
Saprophytism is another important living method for mushrooms, especially for species which grow on lawns, on rotting wood or on excrement. Here the mushroom’s role is one of decomposition. It feeds itself by digesting the organic matter and at the same time returns nutrients to the soil.
Finally, some mushrooms are parasites. There are several kinds of parasitism, ranging from the species which attacks a healthy host (tree, plant or insect) and lives on it without killing it, to the kind which attacks only unhealthy hosts, thereby hastening their death. The parasitic species are generally microscopic mushrooms.
Your head-cinema will do the rest if you listen to this EP.
First let yourself go into an atmospheric dystopia, made of organic mutant-house grooves, sick bass-lines, acid-leads and effected sequences.
Then this road-trip soundtrack of independent electronic music builds up upon the wall of sound.It can seriously influence your body chemistry by freak-frequencies.
The results may alter as unusual moments of Contemporary Utopic Listening.
Insect Life Cycles is Troxellemott’s debut EP. It will guide you through the process of holometabolous development of an insect, a track for each stage.
The music makes you feel the rustle of insect wings, taking away your human skin. Forms are crashed by the narrative, narrative breaks up by forms. Within the tracks architecture you can hear flinging and hesitations in the flow of natural processes. Track by track you’re invited to explore your personality antipodes and face your fears, as for ex. the artist’s primeval centipedes phobia.
Collection of calm electronica. Synthetic sounds are mixed with natural piano, self-made flute and field-recordings to keep harmony and add futuristic flavour. Final track is dedicated to Gennadiy Podvoiskiy.
The latest addition to xenonyms’ catalogue is the debut release from L3T3 a 23 year old producer from the city of Cracow, where he lives and creates. CARE EP is an exciting piece of contemporary music influenced by various genres such as witch house, coldwave and experimental music.
L3T3 carefully selects his sounds on this EP in an attempt to render the processes that take place in his body, mind & soul. His music also offers a personal take on the concepts of post-humanity, the expanding of sensual experiences and a new era of hi-tech.
L3T3 is also a member of the OVER SEERS collective.
vulnerabilis (remixes) is a remix album by closeyoureyes. The album includes remixes from artists from all over the world in different genres from ambient and noisy soundscapes to more classical pieces with violins and pianos. The album keeps the melancholy mood that was declared on “vulnerabilis”, but reveals new potential of original tracks.
Faex Optim is back with another Netlabel Day EP. The master the abandoned places meets inspiring and nostalgic riffs and melodies (akin to Boards of Canada and the like) arrives with a four track EP entitled ‘As the Summer Die’.
Sentimental melodies, off key leads and glorious hip hop beats kick into live epic greats such as ‘Major Calendar’.
Slovak producer MacroNoise presents his seemingly chaotic EP balancing on the edge of downtempo, ambient and IDM that will take you far away from the Earth and back. What you are about to experience is the Continuum.
Wolf Wrams constantly explores human psyche, the emotion that arises from it and influences it making further steps towards heights and after that falling down into the abyss. Birth, life and death, and then another birth are the results of it. That is expected from Entropy, perhaps all Wolf’s songs are entropic.
