Lab023 first appeared as part of Waves VA in December with his track ‘Shanxi’. Constantly surprising with his take on the real classic sound of the early 90s (that many IDM artists today were inspired by) Mellow Space is a look at what made that time so exciting and innovative.
With fantastic tracks like ‘deepness, echo, morning sun and the wave’ which would have been instant hits on radio stations and in the playground on bootleg cassette tapes, Lab023 brings the early 90s up to date with modern technology.

“Dialogue Alone” is the second Manb offering at Sucumusic.
The so called “art-quantum” concept manifested in his previous music, here continues its course in a series of tracks where improvisation is still the major Ermanno’s approach. Textures of sounds and synths are less broken, here. The time quantum is scanned by the minimal rhythm interventions and variations. This release, like all Manb’s music, has a natural vocation to cinematic purposes. You can easily imagine still poses that slowly mutate from A to B in a non linear, imperceptible and unpredictable path. Quoting David Byrne, at the end of the journey, “you may find yourself” asking “where did I get there?”http://sucumusic.weebly.com/uploads/2/3/8/4/23844610/8963418.jpg

Title: For tonight you’re only here to know
Genre: Future Beats
Released on: 04/12/2015
Description (Curated by Marco Stilo)
In full consciousness and introspective phase. Perhaps this is the key to open Lzrs sound door. Certainly, it’s the essential theme between the producer and Sostanze Records for the making of ‘For Tonight You’re Only Here to Know’, the winning debut record by the Italian artist. Such a release pushing for getting what we have around us. A sound apparently melancholic which does not hide emotive charges towards a romantic evolution. Lzrs softly gets up on the stage but at the same time his elegance shows immediately a significant attetion for its message, codified by distorsions and atmospheres playing up the trip created by its music. In love with Lzrs.
In piena fase introspettiva e di sviluppo della conoscenza . Forse è questa la chiave per aprire la porta dei suoni di Lzrs. Sicuramente è il filo conduttore tra il produttore e Sostanze Records nella realizzazione di ”For Tonight You’re Only Here to Know” , debutto vincente dell’artista italiano. Una release che penetra nella voglia di riflettere e capire ciò che ci circonda. Un suono all’apparenza malinconico ma che non nasconde cariche emotive tendenti ad un’evoluzione romantica della musica proposta dall’artista. Lzrs è morbido nell’entrata in scena ma al tempo stesso la sua eleganza desta subito grande attenzione per la profondità del messaggio codificato da distorsioni e atmosfere che amplificano la missione del viaggio creato dalla sua musica. In love with Lzrs.

Here at Kahvi we’re exceptionally proud of our yearly compilation release – and here, finally, is the VA release for 2015! It’s been a mammoth undertaking, collecting tracks, compiling the release, mastering, creating the cover artwork but finally we can announce that ‘Waves’ is here!
This year, we have a massive 50 of the best tracks from some familiar faces, along with many guest artists that submitted their tracks for inclusion. Some really amazing talent is out there with very little exposure, and the VA is our chance to redress the balance. For a playlist visit our Mixcloud page. The VA is made up of a huge range of diverse tracks from ambient to IDM, chill to drum and bass – and even a couple of more experimental tracks to give your ears a treat!
Kicking off the Christmas releases for 2015, I’m happy to welcome an artist that’s almost become a regular – Tetarise. With his usual high quality and high power beats, this five track EP gives us everything we expect from the artist and more.
Tetarises’ tracks are always epic and fast, verging on the trance but taking roots from IDM and electronica in their finest forms as well. What we get in Stop this moment is resounding basses and echoing arpeggios (The Inner Light), detailed and punctual beats similar to Solar Fields (In Time) and a unique mix of Indian Sitar and dance in the final track Bollywood Hero. It works!
Time for the second of the two part roots of IDM and electronica selection. First Analogue 100101 gave us some minimal techno as you’d have heard in the late 80s and early 90s, and now we welcome Jim Black back to Kahvi once again, with some superb early to late 90s inspired IDM and electronica.
Back in 1994 (for some reason this year sticks in my mind) I listened to a radio show from London called ‘The Outer Limits’ on Kiss FM. Always a great listen, showing ground breaking electronic tracks which crossed over from the rave to the more melodical electronic scene.
Jim Black is the master of early 90s sounding tracks – and here is a hand picked 10 track album (playing time just under an hour) of some really epic and amazing tracks that would have fitted right in, way back when.
Check out Digital for a real taste of 808 State-esque epicness, and Fifth Republic for a real speaker shaking bassline!
To take us up to Christmas 2015, something a little special. Two releases two celebrate the roots of IDM and electronica, that we enjoy listening to at Kahvi by all the fantastic artists released over the years. The first release is by guest artist ‘Anonymous3’ with his six track EP entitled ‘Analogue 100101’.
After listening to the EP for the first time, I was struck by how familiar the tracks sounded compared to those albums I listened to in the early 90s. Halycon could have featured heavily on DJ mixes of the time with its long drawn out pads and 808 percussion, where Breath is a tribute to acid house. Heliopause and Metamorphosis could have come straight out of pirate radio broadcasts direct from London in 1994.
Enjoy this blast from the past – and watch out for part 2 of this celebration of the roots of electronica in the next release!
Time for a complete change of pace on Kahvi this month. Guest artist ‘Realm’ appears to be an ambient master, and his 7 track, 55 minute album of epic tracks are created purely to allow you to drift on a sea made of glass.
Slow moving, evolving ambient passages kicked off by the fitting introduction track ‘Celestial Resonance’ leads into a little more Lackluster-esque styled track ‘Mentat’ with floating arpeggios diving into the abyss.
For this ambient fan, the epic ‘Sentinel’ is a track to switch off and kick back, in all its 10.5 minutes playing time, and ‘Self Loops and Voices’ reminds me of another ambient master at Kahvi – Curious Inversions.
Enjoy this delicate wind down after summer and watch out for another epic release next month!

Stato Elettrico presenta Dystopia di Dustywork un ep dalle sonorità dub, techno, industrial con ritmiche distorte, effetti, esoteriche linee di synth e bassi graffianti che ti catturano portandoti nelle profondità del suono techno e sperimentale più oscuro.
Danzando sulle macerie della razionalità Dustywork assembla questi tre brani nei quali ogni pensiero di pace e tranquillità si perde nel magma sonoro generato.
Композиции, написанные около четырёх лет назад в ходе бесконечных экспериментов с записью различных звуков и шумов окружающей среды на диктофон, которые в процессе проходили множество обработок и переработок…
From Argentina arrives a new guest in Modismo Netlabel’s house. that make us travel trough unique sounds and quirugic percussions that reveal to us the smaller sound details. The mix between ambient and custom IDM are the perfect maridaje to this era. Download and enjoy.

Curious Inversions returns to Kahvi with a new six track ep called ‘Standard Deviations’. Back with his usual swirling arpeggios and Tangerine-Dream-meets-Lackluster feel, this is the ideal release to while away a long rainy autumn afternoon.
Unlike his previous release Schoolyard Crows, Curious Inversions shows us a bit of diversification with a couple of tracks that aren’t unlike Boards of Canada or Arovane.
Very detailed, descriptive but with a sentimental edge. Acceptance Criteria and Interlope are good examples of this, with the former progressively building into an epic track that will have you re-listening.
Definitely favourite track is the very addictive Acceptance Criteria with Interlope coming a close second with it’s Mellotron inspired flutes :) Enjoy!

Flatland Sound Studio, aka Max Greening, a Vancouver based sound designer and producer, drops and impressive debut album full of everything we like here at Bedroom Research.
From the very core ingredients (Colorful melodies, Top notch sound design, Vintage samples, Field recorded textures, Hard synthetic glitches, etc), to the overall vibe (from sweet childhood nostalgia, humorous hooks to noisy mayhem) or the well infused musical influences (think Herbert, Matmos, Vibert, Prefuse73, Osymyso, to name a few).
