abjective – overmind

[tonAtom.138]

abjective

“overmind”

the future is now. technologies conquer the world. but some things do not change: without the human factor music is just sound, only elastic waves of mechanical vibrations.

OVERMIN[D] – the fourth album by abjective – the perfect mix of the human mind and modular analog sequencers. it is music on the verge of human reason and the entrance into the void.

Various Artists – Oompa Loopma Riot

Various Artists

“Oompa Loopma Riot”

From 1979 to 1983, the Australian Terse Tapes label made cassette compilations. These are in danger of becoming “classics”, a complete betrayal of the energy that made them. There is no better antidote to cloying nostalgia than the corpse getting up and refusing the funeral.

So instead say that from 1979 to 2015, Terse Tapes made compilations, and here is more of the same. You could put it on a cassette if that matters.

I invited a few people I know, and they invited a few people they know, and music started to arrive in my inbox. I refused to listen to any of it until April Fools day. No one curated anything, although some people were nice enough to chase up their friends.

Having heard this music over the last 24 hours I can divide it into some useful ‘sides’, but keep in mind you are able to arrange it however you like in this non-linear wonderland in which we are trapped.

Side A: people who have doubts about music.
Side B: people who do not fear a pretty tune.
Side C: people that make graphs and grids.
Side D: people who could plausibly perform in a public ale house
Side T: time lords

Do not sell this music for a profit, do not use this music for any commercial purpose, including but not limited to, placement alongside advertisements or behind paywalls.

“PIEL”

51beats feeds himself with new music, being the discovery of new talented artist in the electronic-music-scene a primary objective. “PIEL” is the debut album from Alessio Bressan aka CRAYON MORTEL, a new rising star from Padua (IT). Sounds in “PIEL” somehow find their roots in house-music inspired by Relief Records, adding interesting dusty atmospheres and new sounds recalling artists such Lone and Shlohmo. “PIEL” is an electronic-idm full immersion release, with some banging dj-oriented tracks, see “They” and “Maihaus”…. “End” is a real gem. A new star is born, welcome CRAYON MORTEL, under 51beats !

“From Ritual to Romance”

Et Quid Amabo Nisi Quod Aenigma Est?

Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, a blog founded on January 15 2009, and whose sixth anniversary is commemorated with this release, was envisioned as a space for the nurturing of a “savage thought” (that is, of an undisciplined nature). In its essence, and as an individual project, it aims mostly to be a vehicle for its author’s vast-reaching interests, while at the same time harnessing them into some form of discipline. More than just a reflection on the fascination caused by the themes implicit to its lexical field of action, as shown by the coordinates and key concepts that define the boundaries of its territory, i.e. “Occultism” / “Esotericism”, this virtual space mainly maps some of the topologies enclosed in the History of Ideas. A vast and sometimes ignored area of Knowledge, whose apparently paradoxical character drives a magnetic pull towards the need to identify its true nature, as ubiquitously manifested along various historical cycles, in an unending drama staged in the theatre of the Anima Mundi. This is, in fact, the true raison d’être of Die Elektrischen Vorspiele.
As a direct result of its existence, November 2010 saw the publication of the book “Summa Techno(i)logicae”. This work, as implied by its title, is a thoroughly compiled and systematised patchwork reflecting the interests that guide its author’s research. From then on, periodic collaborations with other projects ensued, such as the magazines Finis Mundi, Infernus and Antibothis.
Still under the aegis of Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, and always through the establishment of complicities and connections, a number of events were created and carried out in the past six years. This set of actions (with Music as a constant common denominator) has had as its main goal the evocation of the life and work of various figures that have left behind crucial legacies. The people celebrated include the musician John Balance (Coil); the historian of religions Mircea Eliade; the poet and theatre director Antonin Artaud; the philosopher Georges Bataille; and the Japanese writer Yukio Mishima. It is also worth mentioning the series of events spanning along the year 2013, Occult Esoterica AV Gatherings, curated in collaboration with intermedia artist Ana Carvalho.
The proposal made to EdP – Editora do Porto (in the person of its administrator, João Ricardo) for the release of this compilation emerges as a consequence of shared common cosmologies which have gradually been transmuted into friendship, and also of João Ricardo’s encyclopaedic musical knowledge, while the invitations made to the artists taking part in it are the logical result of a chaining together of elective affinities (a process permanently taking place since the first Homeric dawn).

VA – The Light Side Of The Blue

[SCL-TM004]

VA

“The Light Side Of The Blue”

“The Light Side Of The Blue” is a sequel to “Wordless” compiliation, which is the result of the creative colaboration between Southern City‘s Lab Label and producer Hank Hobson in search of talented electronic stage musicians. However, contrasting the previous work executed in gloomily vast tones of ambient and glitch, the compilation offers a wide range of styles from jungle and jazzstep to Berlin school. The sequence of tracks is developed in a way that turns it into a novel, written with sounds and tunes. Into a fantastic story where the main character, finding it no more possible to bear his daily routine and seeking seclusion, runs away towards the sea…to another planet.

It all starts with the surrealistic absurd of Mutafory Lili telling with their both comic and psychodelic track about the daily life of our protagonist, where if you listen closely you can realise that he is about to break down. Then the action is transferred to the cosmoport, where Pk jazz Collective, toying with the new wave, is singing a song of mourn and sorrow, maybe even of the lost love. Lost radiance are painting admirable soundscapes, showing all the beauty of the deep space. Finally the duo of Sexyalien & Hank Hobson ($IMDC) is depicting some difficulties during the flight of the spaceship.

After that we are setting off for an automobile ride consisting of three chapters: crazy races across the megapolis by Hobotek, a ride along the highway in tune with jazz by Sobrio and the last few kilometers along the rough coast by Eva Shlegel.

And here comes the seclusion, where being alone with the self, nature and darkish atmosphere, perfectly rendered by SandSpace & lost-radio, D-lity & Amaranth will tell a story about the long-desired evening at the seaside.

Burdeos

“Saudade”

“Saudade” is a word difficult to define, which expresses a sense of melancholy, yearning or longing. A beautiful memory for what has been lived and painful because will not come back.

In this new work, [Miga51] “S A U D A D E”, from Burdeos in our netlabel, all these feelings pile up while listening the 8 tracks that give shape to this release. Electronic music as way of expression and created to generate emotions..

abjective – black ][ trees

abjective

“black ][ trees”

abjective from saint petersburg join tonAtom for their latest release. this artistic project of two brothers melts ambient, idm and glitch into unique compositions on their quest to discover and create new sounds.
13 tracks focusing on the topic of life and birth, death and re-birth are the building blocks for this full-length release “black ][ trees”. music for both brain and soul. an inspiring album and an incredible new entry to the tonAtom catalogue. welcome, abjective!

and in their own words:
“what is it, that dead trees speak about? about life and death, love and hate, happiness and pain. when foliage has fallen and beauty has ceased to be the raison d’etre, wisdom and knowledge move into focus.
black trees – music made of starlight lost among bare branches.”


Faex Optim – Commodore

350

Faex Optim

“Commodore”

Faex Optim appeared in my inbox recently with a simple email – I think my tracks might fit the Kahvi sound, what do you think? Well, this short but ever so sweet EP of four tracks are about as close to Boards of Canada that this die hard BOC fan has ever heard.

Of course, Tycho and others have also made their style very similar to BOC, but Faex Optim hails from the very place that the Sandison brothers live – Scotland. Could it be something in the water or something else? hmm. All the tracks are amazing and if you’re familiar with BOC, you’ll get the feeling and the vibe straight away. Sentimental, lo-fi, analogue, warm, cold. Sending a shiver down your back? This ep has it all. And with minimal equipment that Faex described to me, so who needs a studio full of hardware to create tracks of this calibre?

Track of choice for me is Dancing lessons from the man. Enjoy Commodore, as part of the Christmas lineup for 2014!

Weedie – Tep Sava Galvos

349

Weedie

“Tep Sava Galvos”

Kahvi welcomes guest artist Weedie with a six track ep entitled ‘Tep Sava Galvos’ (meaning Between my head in Lithuanian).

Slightly underground and less mainstream than the last release from Tetarise, Weedie looks towards the minimal and eccentric side of electronic music with subtle beats and melodies, yet nice analog sounds such as the basses on Ego Cogito Cogitatum.

Influences are obviously artists such as Autechre and perhaps a hint of Arovane, and even some Solar Fields, which makes for an interesting listening experience to many a Kahvi fan.

Track of choice for me would be Cukrus Chalvai Atrodo Originaliai Saldus (in English Sugar seems to halva originally sweet) with its mellow groove and nice sounds. The last non-English trackname is Eik ir motyvuokis which means Go and motivate (yourself)


Manb – Particle Decelerator

SCM-1409

Manb

“Particle Decelerator”

Manb is here and is ready to twist the laws of phisics as he decided to build his “particle decelerator” in Sucu Music territory. He takes samples, glitches and noises, stirs everything in his subatomic blender, and the result is a beautiful and obviously juicy cocktail.
(It should be noted that “Particle decelerator” sees the light as a video album, and for this reason it should preferably first be seen before being heard.)

Sacha Rush – Current Playlist

COTA006

Sacha Rush

“Current Playlist”

“I think this album includes not only experiments with waves and rhythms, but also emotions… Emotions of an urbanite who’s always in a hurry, always running somewhere without understanding where… New adventures are waiting for you, be ready to enjoy them.” – Sacha Rush

Le Matin – Le Martin

D!HR-27

Le Matin

“Le Martin”

For its 27th release, Da ! Heart It Records gratifies you with a new album by Le Matin: “Le Martin.”

Over the past decade, we’ve seen this musical UFO pass by on a Chicago house label (Mathematics Recordings), on the ParisHQ compilation covering Julien Clerc in an 8bit version, and even on a breakcore label (Berzerk Produkts) remixing Franky Vincent!

We also owe him must-see video games such as Ours en Slip Simulator and Blektre (a real-life simulator)…We get it, Charles Torris is a geek, a comprehensive and prolific artist who likes to cultivate paradoxes.

In this album, you will find his sub-realist poetry, where dark – and sometimes coarse – humor slices with a sober, sensitive, and melancholic music. In his displaced universe, synthesizers and “old-style” rhythm boxes draw landscapes with neon lights, cellophane clouds, and the silicone architecture of a future as fascinating as it is troubling.

His sonorities may evoke Detroit’s techno, cold wave, and even the IDM of a DMX Krew. But as the artist says himself – and as the piece Nouvel Évier shows – “If Kraftwerk or Dopplereffekt were French, their balls would spill out from their dirty kangaroo underwear…”

This album deserved a case fit for its preciousness, thus it is presented in a folded LP sleeve decorated with a superb illustration, along with a drawing, cards, a badge, and a sticker, all created by Élise Kobisch-Miana.

Let it be known: this album by Le Matin is to French chanson what sausage is to sauerkraut: indispensable!

Crossworlds – Ivana Kupala Night

[SCL150]

Crossworlds

“Ivana Kupala Night”

Crosswords is a mixture of abstract IDM/Downtempo by King Imagine and East Slavic singing of Irina Skripnikova. The overall sound appeals to the old Ukrainian traditions.
It is a place where the noise of postindustrial world becomes a dark forest. Following the cat’s song listener travels to the ancient times. There are pagan rituals of Ivan Kupala. There girls make wreaths, water-nymphs sing and fern is in bloom.

erich schall – the nearer the wall the sweeter the fabric

erich schall

“the nearer the wall the sweeter the fabric”

three variations on the same theme, three times the same ingredients but individual meals

after having released on the superb labels “der kleine grüne würfel”, basicsounds and pragmat we are happy to welcome erich schall on tonAtom. the straight 4/4 bass drum is mostly kept aside, instead he joins tonAtom with an autumn release. this time it is much gloomier and atmospheric than usual. and there is a completely new world to uncover: textures, areas, mist, leaves and sand. and eventually the walls from the album’s title.


Pura Neurosi – Pura Neurosi

SE053

Pura Neurosi

“Pura Neurosi”

Questo progetto musicale affonda le sue radici nella musica elettronica, nel post-rock e nella shoegaze con influenze down-tempo. Voce, chitarre, sintetizzatori e suoni sporchi uniti in un suono unico e convincente. Il progetto Pura Neurosi è iniziato a Barcellona, nell’estate del 2010, e rappresenta la naturale evoluzione delle traiettorie musicali dei membri. Entrambi provengono da un passato rock classico ma negli ultimi anni si sono dedicati alla produzione e al djing di musica techno e minimal. Con riferimenti alla post-dubstep di Mount kimbie, Balam Acab e i suoni atmosferici ed inquietanti di Salem, Pura Neurosi ha fuso queste influenze dentro il suo stile alternativo.

Unlogic Thing & r.roo – Void

AR_037

Unlogic Thing & r.roo

“Void”

The result of collaboration by two musical projects Unlogic Thing and r.roo is the creation of a pulsating sphere. It is grim and disturbing, cold and technogenic space. Music replete with choral inserts, breaking rasping beats and jammed glitch. This conjunction leads to the logical upshot. The emptiness and chilly soundscape of the title track Void makes the final touch.
released 01 November 2014
