The largely successful, Scape From Reality EP by Code Therapy, is back with vengeance, reconstructed by some new and old members from the Digital Diamonds family. Part two of the dualistic remix series has a more sinister, progressive trance feel. Gelled by the inimitable stems from the original EP it contains cavernous pads, cheeky motifs and unblemished sound design. These 5 tracks by Multi-Tul, Lampé, L-XIR, Kavalier and Musgolino couldn’t cause more trouble on the dance floor with their late night intent and staunch demeanour. Believe it or not they will reshape your reality.
It’s finally Summertime, but press play, close your eyes and you’d never be able to tell. Lamont Kohner’s third single for RP lands with a roomy bass pulse and a dusty loop that slowly splits open to reveal white noise-crusted dub chords and a thumping traincar rhythm. BECKONS does what it says on the tin, with minimal side effects, drawing us into the seedy nightlife of Kohner’s noir cityscapes and neon vapors. Following the irresistible groove of BECKONS is CLOSE IT, a slightly more traditional dub techno affair, recalling the Detroit strains of Deepchord and Echospace while also conjuring a thick-as-a-brick rhythmic foundation that goes even further back to the first couple Maurizio 12″s in Germany. The whole thing congeals into that trademark Kohner shuffle, and we’re once again sitting back in a darkened taxi, window half open, smoke wafting out into the greasy streets. Falling beneath the music’s spell, you feel compelled to close the window – we’re doing something intimate in here.
Today I am writing about colleagues, an activity that has become a habit, and I am celebrating because this allows me to surrender my ears to things that perhaps I would have missed otherwise. And yes, the pleasure of listening to a piece such as Nostromo is, at some points, so pleasant and repeatable that it gives you, as a first sensation, the urge to listen to it over again. It begins with tribal electronic beats. It is well mixed in terms of difference of style; that is to say, an excellent and very organic mix. It does not lose focus; it is simple and fascinating. Out of its three tracks, in my opinion and without a doubt, the second one, Northern Lights, gets all the applause, and let us say, it is the hit of the album, even though the whole work is consistent regarding composition, choice of sound palette and mixing. This track in particular has something hypnotic; with delicacy from beginning to end and maturity in respect of the used recipe. I just love it. The last track, Universal Consciousness, that gives the name to the album, is undeniably the most danceable song. It is full of good moments and it is part of a very homogeneous album, and at the same time it flows through different paths in each of the three songs. Maybe this last reason is the cause for listening to it many times. It is difficult to keep a clear identity when forms are shifted inside of the very same album, but Nostromo has succeeded. Each one of its tracks, with each one of their individualities, are worked flawlessly, dynamically and warmly. For me, Nostromo provides many reasons for exploring it and for exploring the catalog of Modismo, the Chilean record label where the album has been edited and released; an aside for the label that has been working since a long time ago, releasing several interesting works. It is a real sin not to pass through.
The largely successful, Scape From Reality EP by Code Therapy, is back with vengeance, reconstructed by some new and old members from the Digital Diamonds family. Part one of the dualistic remix series is the more psychedelic of the two. Gelled by the inimitable stems from the original EP it contains god-like pads, elevating melodies and flawless sound design. These 4 tracks by Ozka, Adamson, Trilingo and Nicorus are undoubtedly calculated for pure dance floor pleasure with their full-bodied sound and hard-hitting grooves. Believe it or not they will reshape your reality.
New Abstract Techno EP on New Jersey’s netlabel sub65. Six tracks from the Swiss underground experimental duo Das All. The first track “Don’t Fuck With Das All” is an edit of an exclusive contribution to the eight episode of the lobit procpod podcast.
This 3 track EP from Osiris4 is nothing short of mountain-moving. It contains cutting-edge sound design, unrelenting atmospheres and rich, organic textures that will have your eyes closed, drawing you in deeper and deeper. Between the tracks you’ll find lush, dreamy pads, massive synths and melancholic melodic progressions cohesively interwoven amongst driving rhythm sections and haunting vocals. These black diamonds contain powerful originality and will leave you feeling transcendentally fulfilled.
Selected cuts of the 303 jams in the dub style direction.
It’s like when we are far away “flying” in experiments, into rhythmic noise, in the process of jam, but there is a daredevil who declares: “Let’s play dub!”.It’s like something about dub and techno, somwhere close to noise with broken rhythm. It’s like something with bass and chords and melody, it is mostly rhythmic, stumbles somewhere, sticks somewhere, it is electronic and connected to the “network” …
Attention! illocanblo (11,12,13) and Potential DifferenSe (14) participated in several jams. Thank you.
Monofónicos Netlabel presenta el nuevo proyecto de house experimental de Archaic Revival llamado Spirit Come First, donde su esencia es la música que no tiene reglas o límites en su creación.

Phantoms EP by Spintribe will elude and distort your senses with the duo’s engaging take on pleasantly unpredictable and evolving progressive techno. Their smooth, dreamy, atmospheric soundscapes and deep, brooding pads give the EP a cloud nine feel while going hand in hand with their funky bass lines, stabby synths and rock-solid drums. All in all the EP has impeccable production quality, intriguing narrative, well-crafted sound design with playful changes and drops and will leave you staring up at the sky on those wind-swept, day time festival dance floors.
After his strong EP “Silhouettes”, Digital Diamonds presents KUNI’s debut album! 13 unique tracks, each constituting their own narrative. In a world driven by perpetual change and a yearning for freedom, KUNI represents a sonic reality that is not restricted by any rules. This is reflected in the album title ‘Coalesce’ meaning ‘come together to form one mass or whole’… which is what this versatile artist embodies. Immerse yourselves in the journey.
This track is about the narcissist mother of family murderer Chris Watts who in an interview blamed her pregnant dead daughter-in-law for her own killing as well as the killing of her two girls.
The second track is a rework by Willi. It was produced at Cadmium Studio.
This release ended in the disbandment of the band Das All that consisted of Willi and me. I offered Willi to mention Cadium Studio on the cover of this release after he mentioned to me he was looking for publicity. He thought the idea so ridiculous that he ended all collaboration with me.
Duality Micro (aka eVade) is a producer from lower Saxony who’s been active since the mid 90s, releasing on a plethora of labels. He’s the inventor of a cable to sync up Game Boys with Korg drum machines.
Previously, he appeared on two 20kbps compilations but this ablum is his first release on our label under this moniker. All of the eight songs of the EP are solid, but one that imo stands out is Guten Abend Leute (Nixtauger Mix 2), an addictive minimal tech-house track, where you’ll automatically start to shake along.
A big welcome to KUNI from Australia! KUNI explores both digital and natural sound, weaving through various musical genres. A hybrid creature with bass-driven grooves, tribal rhythms, evolving soundscapes, and hypnotic, pulsating beats. His debut EP “Silhouettes” is a musical gem with four dance floor tracks, each track with its own character and story. It also sheds some light on KUNI’s upcoming cross-over album “Coalesce” here on Digital Diamonds!
Following his Automatic Writing single, issued on the Autumn Equinox in late 2018, Brother Blue opens 2019 with Shoreline Drive, a 5-track EP of dub techno cuts and RP’s first release of the new year. It is also fitting that it should come out today, during the Super Blood Wolf Moon, a rare celestial event that echoes some of the themes on these tracks.
Musically, Shoreline Drive brings more excellent electronics on the deeper side of the spectrum to play with the rest of the Bedroom Compost catalog. Tim’s work is never less than superb and intimately engaging, and these five tracks are equal parts rugged techno rhythms, sultry dub chords and textured atmospheres that displace the listener. Shoreline Drive recalls not only Detroit classics like Echospace and Deepchord, but also many other deep moments in the Recycled Plastics library, from Ohrwert, Mon0, Axs, Zzzzra, Coppice Halifax and Textural Being, among others…In short, we are beyond happy to have Tim once again here with us, and Shoreline Drive feels both new and home-worn familiar, in all the best ways.
NOTE: The physical edition of Shoreline Drive also contains two additional tracks: “Automatic Writing (Version)” from BC72 and a 2018 remaster of “Summoning UFOs”, which previously only appeared on a compilation at the luxurious Silent Season label. With these two extras, Shoreline Drive becomes a 67-minute long dub trip, not to be missed!
