5 years of Annulled Music.
Thank you for five years of relationship with music, for long conversations with people from all parts of the earth. It really is a unique experience. Just for that, all the work is worth it. Thanks all the fans.
As thanks to these years, we will put in free download in our bandcamp page, a selection of 17 tracks, which are part of the history of the label.
In the same way, I can only express my gratitude to each and every one of the artists who have participated in this project, no doubt they are the artifices of the existence of Annulled Music.
Digital Diamonds proudly presents Unknown Concept’s (AU) debut release. Enigma EP is strikingly exciting in its chunky production, which creates anticipation through seamless composition and layering. From start to finish it doesn’t let up, consistently delivering a big room techno sound that meets a progressive, voyage experience. Your senses will be summoned by laser beam synthesis, dark and stormy effects, forceful bass lines and witty, call and response melodies. We foresee big things to come from this Aussie underdog and his stylish sound. Upon listening a deeper trance will ensue.
Divider is a split between two live sets. Parietal (tracks 1 to 3) is a meditation on the birth of human consciousness and subsequent division(s), partly inspired by David Lewis-Williams’ book The Mind In The Cave. Recorded live for Paul Takahashi’s drawing exhibition Parietal Field in Ideas Block, Vilnius, 14.12.17. Mare (tracks 4 & 5) is a mid-tempo ride in a dark sea of analog drones and intervowen arpeggios. Recorded live in Paviljonas, Vilnius, 27.01.18. Thank you: Liucija & Roberto, Augustinas, Laurynas.
What sticks out while listening to the Listen to my heart EP is the fact that ist creator Mar io has been in the business for a long time and has mastered the skill of combining a range of influences and styles into very atmospheric tunes. After his previous vinyl EP on the Cologne-based label Form & Terra, these seven new tracks seem more like a mini album than your usual EP and embrace the listener with warm and atmospheric melodies, vocals and lots of groove from start to finish. Mar io’s sounds are packed with club music history, ranging from acid house references, emerging through the Zweig remix of the title track, up to flashbacks into the more explicit and direct approach for which 90s club tracks are so much loved these days. However, he always manages to weave such influences into his tracks in the most respectful way, not making it sound like an obvious reach out to the retro-crowd but like a loving reminiscence of the glorious past. Not to forget that with „Shake Your Body (Give It To Me)“ (Electro Mix) Mar io underlines that his latest EP is not only made for the dancefloor, even though this is where it surely will cause elevate levels of serotonine pretty soon.
Enkō and Inversus is a mixture of two artistic talents who are actively contributing to the Lisbon music scene.
Enkō is a DJ and producer and a rising name on techno and ambient. He’s been behind the curatorial activity at OBRΔ after-hours, the sunset evenings of Ocaso, and is a solid DJ frequenting venues such as Lux, Boom Festival, Gare, Orbits, Festival Forte, etc.
Inversus is a musician, trained painter, and professional studio owner. He relentlessly explores the possibilities of visual and sound arts. The impact of his 2017 release, “Sobrena” (ZigurArtists label) is still echoing while his live performances continue to resonate.
“Murmur” arose from the intersection of these two producers’ exploration of semi-literal rhythms and atmospheres. The result fits very comfortably into the Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda) evolving aesthetic, with remixes by label partners Gabi von Dub (Augen) and Dave Wesley… and signature graphic design by Andre Macedo.
released April 25, 2019
Illegal Arts EP holds a bold range of genre defiance, with influences ranging from outer-space, acid techno to low-fi, industrial house to yet discovered arcade, jungle techno. There’s never a dull moment with their unusual composition, beautiful dissonance, warm grooves, eerie textures and mischievous approach to progressive techno. Be prepared for something special as this 80’s, New York hip-hop inspired EP propels you into the next dimension.

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.
