Winter is coming slowly. The sorrow penetrates through the window of a house lit by a faint sun. The bells ring out far. A woman sings her dreams of escape, while a man turns around a square seeking for his desappeared love. The snow fall down insistently. Voices chant litany to celebrate the end of life. noises interfere with the rarefied melodies of a piano that tries to draw landscapes of purity. With the cold, innocence seems to have to die. Yet in a courtyard, the children resist winter by playing under the cold eyes of adults, and here and there, little birds survive in the snow.
“Alea iacta est, luck or chance, may well be the ideas navigated by the musical work of Aiggom Gaudium (pseudonym Sebastian Moggia), in his first publication in Pueblo Nuevo, who does justice to the name of this EP in a way that is mysterious and almost cryptic.
Translated into English, the title of the album means ‘the luck is cast’, probably in reference to the artistic courage of trying to control the uncontrollable through music. The development, a mixture between the past and that which ensues through time, are shown here in an amalgam of references through which the author moves -and has moved before-, comfortably, as much in the mixture of styles with denomination of origin, as in the resulting sonorities and a musicality of neat technical style.
Links with the ambient, tints of arrangements with origins in traditional instrumental music, abundant in thick beds, classical pianos and electronic sequences, real or simulated violins and jazzy drums, these make up this group of four compositions with kind and sometimes melancholic melodies, they provide glimpses of finely intertwined electronic treatments; they are sonic layers that advance in atmospheres and unimagined landscapes, that through multiple listens necessarily evoke a different time, as if Aiggom Gaudium had tempted luck, taking it by the horns and submitting it to his musical will.”

“From Viña arrives to Pueblo Nuevo the interesting project Aiggom Gaudium, the intellectual property of the musician and producer Sebastián Moggia, whose name has been hitherto unknown in the small world of electronic music, and who makes his official debut with this collection of 4 tracks entitled ‘Alea Iacta Est’.
Sebastian, as he himself has defined it, travels in this EP through past lives in different personal projects and styles, as much within electronic music and outside it, including techno, house, psytrance, drum & bass, chill-out, jazz and classical music. In this work he constructs with delicate electronic and acoustic elements musical passages of an instrumental nature that ignite in distinct moments, and with varied textures, the omnipresent and conceptual darkness of the author.
We move here through different scenes and sensibilities in an environment that is dark, but developed with “plot and drama”, with an emphasis on the subtlety of well-produced and mixed synthetic sounds, orchestrated environments, dancing to the sound of good beats and percussion loops. Sebastian here presents stories, with developments and a kind of script with distinct scenes in a single musical tour, as in his beautiful track ‘I’m Late’, which delights with its pianos, synthesizers and voices processed through a path with different nuances and breaks.
‘Canto en Púrpura (Song in Purple)’ is another mysterious story of the composer, with good rhythmic movement from electronic and real drum loops, a bit like Massive Attack on their Mezzanine album, which holds warm touches of synthesized pads. An almost cinematic view of a desolate landscape, but exciting to contemplate.
Completing this work are the pieces ‘Quasi una Fantasía’ and ‘Cycling’, which comprise a more intense rhythmic attunement, coated with processed analog sounds, acoustic pianos and voices from a heartfelt, ceremonial, and distant song, as in a revealing dream. As the composer tells us in his title, ‘The luck is cast’, because on a personal level this adventurous soloist has started on the right foot, and I wish him the best in his creation and new pathways. Enjoy.”

Collaboration EP between our staff member ps and the German project OKAM. Four tracks of a journey through time and space. Dark ambient cinematic sounds riddled with field recordings and influences from shoegaze and breakcore.
DISSONANT adalah unit electronic / eksperimental antara Andryan Ade dan Yoga Usmad. Project ini bereksperimen dengan suara ambient, soundscape, noise, serta dipadukan dengan instrument piano dan synthesizer.
“Journey.” berisi arsip audio dari pertunjukan musik yang telah dilakukan Dissonant. Materi komposisi berasal dari element dan suara-suara yang ada dalam album pertama (dirilis oleh netlabel Mindblasting). Kami mengembangkan materi-materi dalam album tersebut dan melakukan kolaborasi dengan beberapa seniman (instalasi, video maker, dan musisi). Kolaborasi lintas disiplin ini merupakan upaya eksplorasi untuk menemukan bentuk komposisi baru disetiap presentasinya. Hasil rekaman diambil dari pementasan di beberapa kota (Jogjakarta, Semarang, dan Salatiga).
Maybe because it’s the first musical instrument us humans knew in our entire life.
This is an attempt to make compositions (and also to make peace) with my voice as building blocks; still, it is hard to tame.
Except for the last track. I had fun playing with free piano app on my phone, and it complements and compliments the end result quite a bit.
Also shout out to my old friend from years back, Ms. Bamby C. who now resides in Jakarta; utmost gratitude for the permission to use some of her excellent writings for lyrics/general ideas throughout this release.

Why, who could these mysterious characters, the Fragilos, out to discover apparently unknown territories be? Take the time to follow their adventures through this UFO-reminiscent album that encapsulates a few instants of their stealthy existence in 13 pieces …
In the style of the illustrative discs of the seventies and eighties from which Philippe Brown draws inspiration, the titles of this cassette’s compositions are clues themselves designed to stimulate the listeners’ imaginations. Thus, by holding the sleeve drawn up by Man Oroa while listening, each will be able to make up his or her own little story and discover the naïve-sounding, yet far from obvious, melodies.
One will thus go from one moon to the next without ever fully landing, floating softly above the ground among the bossa, zouk, or oriental rhythms and cinematographic atmospheres imprinted as much with second degree as with light melancholy.
Attracted to a musical era he didn’t experience but of which he uses the codes with style, Philippe has the characters evolve well beyond the musical frontiers we sometimes burden ourselves with. With this fictional original sound track at the crossroads of genres and eras, he visibly goes very far away, so far that everything leads us to believe that this dreamer of a musician most certainly has his head in the moon!

Nostress Netlabel is proud to release ” Granchite Yumtruso PT 2″, the new digital EP by Massimo Ruberti, an artist from Livorno (Italy) who usually define himself as a “Trafficker of sounds and images”. The album is the second part of the EP “Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1 “, released by Nostress Netlabel exclusively for Netlabel Day 2016 organized by the Chilean netlabel M.I.S.T. and which involves Netlabels from all over the world. EP “Granchite Yumtruso PT 2” closes a cycle of sounds that gradually stratify with exotic and colored atmospheres, with distant echoes that rest on long carpets with an antique flavor. The voice of Ada Doria in “Wilderness Falling” and “Cosmic egg traveling blues” seems to come out of an 1870 gramophone as it disperses vibrations in the Sahara desert. The sax of Fabio Leonardi paints well-defined shades of color. Notable orchestral arrangements of Roberto Mangoni in “Cosmic egg traveling blues”. The songs were recorded at Dogana D’acqua Studio. The disc has been mixed and burned from Francesco Landucci to Poderino Recording Studio.
Warahraan is an Ambient/Electronic/Experimental music project from Persia founded in the early 2008, inspired by the immensity and grandeur of the nature and cosmos. The music is trying to illustrate the creation through a different view. Warahraan is a journey through magical sovereignties and enigmatic kingdoms, a deep mystical discovery through terrestrial and extraterrestrial zones.
Warahraan means victory and conquest in the ancient Persian language. The other older forms of this word are Verethraghan and Verethragna. Warahraan is the Persian god of Fire, the most sacred of all fires that is a combination of 16 fires as it mentioned in the Avesta (Sacred Book of Zoroastrians) and other ancient Persian sacred texts. The word referring to the Mars (fourth planet from the sun) in astrology. The twentieth day of month is dedicated to him according to the Zoroastrian calendar.
This self-produced EP is the first work by Go Ask Alice: eight instrumental tracks, composed between 2012 and 2013, recorded and mixed by Matteo Spinazzé, in collaboration with Curzio Ferri playing drums and Andrea Oggiano with his acoustic guitar.
Perfection is terrible is the first verse of Sylvia Plath’s poem “The Munich Mannequins”.
“Perfection” here is completeness, closure, inability to evolve and reborn, perfection is death.
Perfection is indeed terrible, can’t have a child, just as Plath’s Munich Mannequins, cold marble statues, beautiful and perfect, frozen with us in a never ending present, the immense futureless present of the “capitalist realism”: the end of history.
Twenty-three works of ambient doodling’s, short soundscapes, or possible soundtracks. The idea behind the project was to allow artists, film directors or animators to use them with their work. If I get mentioned in the project for providing the music. Allowing the works to work with or inspire other works. It would be great to build on this idea so groups of artists are working together on small projects all over the world, sharing ideas and concepts together.
Back with the announced full length album by Matti T from Finland, slightly increasing pace and going into Sunday chillaxing mood and offering soft drops and various film like atmospheres. We look back and try to look forward, inbetween worlds. NetlabelDay Release 2017. July 14th
