“When the weight drops to the floor, after the lifting,
the moment of relaxation is achieved.
But if you’re standing on ice,
the problems are just about to begin.”Erich Schall in December 2018, gone fishing after dictating.
New perspective of things can be found by raising ourselves. From a terrace, a peak or imaginary places we seek contemplation as it is our creative nutrient. Unsettling times must be confronted on the sidewalk of music production. As citizens of the world we are being witnesses of agitation related to climate change, to a rearrangement of political forces and to socioeconomic inequity among a variety of intertwined elements that cause reflection. It is a complex scenario that leads forces of similar pulsation and that seems to motivate the efforts behind the sharp response in this fifth compilation of Modismo. This compilation joins multinational talents in a wide range of styles, and as a proof of clean intentions it releases music of such depth and quality available for free. A gesture of caring kindness unites these 21 musical statements in which humanity and the plotted electro-mutant sounds dance as a reflection of upcoming storms. The overflowed pessimism, the industrial protest, the revolutionary dance and the questiong of forms have a natural room in one of the most ambitious works created by this label. For its constant commitment with risk and quality this new compilation of Modismo can be considerated as a compulsory stop at the moment of photograph the state of arts in the contemporary electronic music.

Debut release on Digital Diamonds by F.I.E.L.D.Y from Bahnwärter Thiel/, Wannda, Munich. And it’s a very special one, a homage to three different installations and art cars at Afrikaburn 2017. All track titles pay tribute to the camps and crews, where F.I.E.L.D.Y had the pleasure to play: slow and deep driving minimal techno at the Tree Of Life, immersive tribalistic atmospheres at The Dragon, a hypnotic and trippy interpretation of the Play at The Haupbahnhof by Wanderzrikus feat. vocals by Mo Libretto. Last but not least the title track get’s pimped up by a melodic remix by 959er. Desert tech at it’s best!
Straight from Portugal, Code Therapy is here to bring fresh and groovy sounds into your world. Perfectly blending hypnotic melodies with solid beats, this well-known duo from the Iberic Peninsula are experts in transforming their festival experiences into raging studio tracks.
Their new release comprehends a variety of tracks perfectly representing the skills and abilities of these musicians, who not only know how to master a dancefloor, but also to produce pushy bombtracks for the perfect drop.

Your head-cinema will do the rest if you listen to this EP.
First let yourself go into an atmospheric dystopia, made of organic mutant-house grooves, sick bass-lines, acid-leads and effected sequences.
Then this road-trip soundtrack of independent electronic music builds up upon the wall of sound.It can seriously influence your body chemistry by freak-frequencies.

Monofónicos Netlabel presenta orgullosamente el lanzamiento debut de Insanity Circle llamado “Ritual Of Colors”, un nuevo artista sobresaliente que llega a sumergirnos en la nueva era de la música con mucha vitalidad.
Insanity Circle nos presenta 4 increíbles canciones donde el house más energético fluye sobre toda las fronteras del baile, pero jugando con nuestro cuerpo y nuestra mente en este ritual de colores donde el resultado es sumamente sorprendente.
The technoburlesque show Image Snatchers is a series of constantly changing and evolving episodes, now already in its sixth season. It is a modern take on burlesque, packed with witty feminist-inspired campy and queer humour and often critically commenting on the current socio-political landscapes and events both locally and beyond. The numbers enact actual political figures, like Angela Merkel, Melania Trump, and the local culture minister on one hand, or more general but psychologically detailed roles on the other, such as a chauvinist macho, a slow-walking grandma, or an android with a drinking problem. The music is sometimes used as a ready-made and an important reference to specific past era, scene or its vibe. Lip-syncing makes an appearance too and so do electronic bootleg edits or remix tracks. Popular songs are sung live, sometimes with lyrics changed to various degrees, whereas at other times completely original music is made by the collective. Different languages have so far been used – besides Slovenian and English obviously, we had lyrics sung in Portuguese, French, Chinese, Italian, German, and Serbo-Croatian in one way or another.
Out of the three tracks on the so called mainside part of this EP, two of them are rapped in Slovenian. “Vrtnice” (Roses) is a poetic but outspoken take on dismissive attitudes towards artists in contemporary politics and public life in general. It says that artists (“we are the culture squad”) are needed in a society to make everyone feel the life in colours, with a present mind and heart, for “roses” are needed as much as bread. “Dnevnik” (Daily news) features a bunch of performers-turned-MCs, sarcastically and critically touching upon various aspects of daily life: abortion, immigration, consumerism, capitalism, and mental health among others. In the refrain, it features a French-Portuguese performer in the role of an immigrant trying to sing widely known Slovene nursery rhymes while threatening with stereotypical threats attributed to immigrants: stealing jobs, kidnapping wives, and corrupting children.
We return after a break with a new release of the mexican producer already known in Nulogic Netlabel as In Vitro. Creator of the wonderful label Breathe, In Vitro offers us a fascinating Ep of four tracks whose main pattern is based on the roots of Techno. But there is much more than Techno in this work. Brushstrokes of a precious electronics, deep bass lines and a groove that dances on the edge of the dark side. These are just some of the surprises that “Transdimensional Woods” offers us.
Mahamboro adalah salah satu dari sekian banyak musisi dengan talenta yang menakjubkan. Menguasai beberapa alat musik sekaligus mengendalikan sendiri home recordingnya. Proyeknya kali ini berjudul Surup, yang menurutnya diistilahkan sebagai Trance Techno. Sebuah track yang cukup menarik dan membius. Terinspirasi dari kegiatan berkesenian merayakan hari kemerdekaan di kampung halamannya Magelang, ketika tari tarian tradisional membius penari dan para penonton. Kesurupan menjadi ritus yang biasa disaksikan. Musik yang disajikan Mahamboro sedikit banyak menggambarkan nuansa ketukan ritmis yang dengan hawa techno yang cukup menghipnotis. Track ini dirilis untuk ikut mendukung dan merayakan Indonesia Netaudio Festival 3.0. Selamat mendengarkan
A 2018 Netlabel Day release – a compilation of Slovenian artists, with many original works that span a wide spectrum of electronic music genres: from noise and sonic art, via bass, breaks, all the way to acid techno. The concept of the compilation is to bring attention to the conflict between necessity of free culture and enclosure of culture by copyright law. The conflict which is temporarily solved by Creative Commons licences.
An act of publishing music under the conditions of a free culture licence is a political act. In times of continuous global expansion of individualism which is often tightly connected to capitalist exploitation, it communicates a clear message: a desire to build a collectivity. For an artist acting on her own, or a small niche label, it is a significant move towards creation of equitable access to works of art. This act is an actual and concrete contribution to a pool of culture shared by all, an entering of a work and its creator into a collective consciousness. It is not a supression of individual desires and rights – as would false dichotomy of collectivism vs individualism perhaps imply. Instead it is an opening of creative process towards the global community and the public. It is an abandonment of a phantasm of fame and fortune based on maximisation of profits, exploitation of copyright, and intellectual property. Publishing one’s work as free culture is an action of an individual desiring to communicate her art with a collective humanity. It is an intentional gift to any and every potential individual who thusly belongs to a global collective of humanity and is empowered to follow her individual creative paths: listening, learning, composing, reworking, remixing, and sharing.
Access Frame is a series of compilations of adventurous music published by Kamizdat under a Creative Commons licence on 14. July – International Netlabel Day. It tries to establish a practice of thinking critically about access to, and distribution of, art. It poses a question: what is the frame through which we are allowed, and able, to access culture? How is it created, by whom, and can such frame of access be modified and transgressed?
This handful of sounds in musical format is anything but arid, since thousand of images do flourish and take place against to our psyche, as we go through the generous timing of the tracks.
Microscopic geometries perpendicularly pass through the space inhabited by omnipresent and opaque bass drums in black notes (as it has to be) which are several times fractured by resounding breaks that keep inviting us to a total immersion. There is no truce or carelessness. Everything is in its place.
The web is solidified and amalgamated by elegant melodies of overseas (Árido III). Other times there are distant voices (Árido II) which characterize the galloping plot that equally spill magic and celebration in an endless coven. Árido I puts us a muzzle and a leash to take us to a ride with an eternal arpeggio of cosmic horseback ride that is little by little being contaminated by weaves of liquid gas and noisy flashes.
The delivery is a resounding trip of oneiric minimalism with remarkable aquatic calling and architecture riddled with compressed concrete. Since minute 1 it warns that from here one does not come back with the same face as the one at the beginning of the trip.
A serious, meticulous, elegant and hypnotic work that invites to be listened with closed eyes, light off and a closed door.
The excellent remixes that complete this robust new delivery of Modismo provide spice to the total, but of course the dish can only be more filling at that level of genre.
When it comes to fat beats designed to drive a dancefloor nuts, Lampés music is what you are looking for. A thrilling bass pumping straight into your guts, accompanied by well-crafted sounds to cheer to, this EP fits well into the selection of any DJ willing to set a crowd on fire.
The Crystal Cave EP features three brand new tracks by this artist from Hamburg, whose output is difficult to pinpoint. Lampé manages to create a perfect blend from Techhouse and Trance, spiced up with UK House and electro elements difficult to resist.
The EP is completed with a sensational remix of Alic’s “The Host”, masterminds of the Digital Diamonds label, transforming their track into an unstoppable rollercoaster.
“After 2 years since the award-winning debut album “Todo no es Todo”, the audio-visual collective C/VVV is once again
sending out signals with this EP called “Miniatura + remixes”, as a preview of a future album in constant evolution.The group recorded this track at the end of 2016 in a session entirely improvised and characterized by friendly musical
dialogue between its founders Mika Martini and Pablo Flores, before the latter moved to Rome, Italy. Later, that recording
was complemented by the sonic input of the person writing this review (Francisco Pinto), with contributions to this new
exploration that follow emotional and playful pathways.
The mission in this project is simple and without much pretense. This adventure combines different sounds and small details
built with almost 100% analog technology, featuring sound miniatures and dancing timbres that together reveal nostalgic
landscapes through a contemporary interpretive perspective. The auditory encounter nourishes the ears with these
micro-sounds, synthetic textures, while, at the same time, permeating the contemplative state of its creators in those
sessions produced previously.
Distinct authors from the national electronic scene construct / deconstruct this new work, with their distinct perspectives
and remix contributions: “Unknown Dancer” with a random re-mixing of the same ingredients that reveals surprising results;
René Roco adding mystery, surrealism and complexity to his version; “co-dec” moving towards the most rhythmic approach,
providing new synthetic sounds but without losing the details; and ending with “android” with a very successful, danceable and
elegant transformation of this miniature. Finally, we cannot fail to mention the contribution of Iñaki Muñoz for the cover of the
EP, who always surprises us with the expressive power of his visuals in the concerts of C/VVV.
We continue to prepare ourselves for a new adventure in a random universe, which inspires us from time to time, bringing us
together and surprising us, even in spite of the distances.
Wish us good luck and good harvest.”

“Como corresponde a dos veteranos de la escena musical, Lars Graugaard y Claudio Pérez tienen entre ellos una amplia experiencia en estilos como jazz, electrónica, pop, clásica y contemporánea, cubriendo enfoques creativos que incluyen improvisación, notación, programación y producción musical. Ahora unen fuerzas en tres pistas extendidas que de muchas maneras son similares a sus presentaciones en directo, en las que la música en constante transformación de Lars crea un campo de juego para los exquisitos y fluidos inventos en teclado y sintetizadores de Claudio.
Si bien todas las pistas tienen una fuerte base rítmica, las hazañas sonoras continuas produce una música atrevida en refundación ininterrumpida y con giros sorprendentes e vueltas inesperadas.
Los paisajes sonoros de indole psicodélico recuerda al trabajo de Radian, Jan St. Werner y Blir, e incluso a las creaciones subacuáticas de Porter Ricks, particularmente cuando las pistas alcanzan
alta densidad tecno-febril y el conjunto se hace acídico-delirante. En ocasiones, el cuerpo sonoro entero está siendo agusanado por procesos perforantes que transforma la música en algo fantasmagórico, como si pasase a través de un insondable agujero de tiempo y espacio, donde el instante se deforma en visiones deliciosamente irracionales de un sinrazón obstinado.”
“As befits two veterans of the music scene, Lars Graugaard and Claudio Perez hold extensive experience between them in jazz, electronica, pop, classical and contemporary music styles, and cover creative approaches that include improvisation, scoring, computer coding and music production. Now they join forces in three extended tracks that in many ways are similar to their live performances where Lars’ constantly morphing live laptop provides a rich playing field for Claudio’s exquisite and free-flowing inventions on keyboard and synthesizers.
While all tracks have a strong rhythmic grounding, the sonic exploits are daring and continuous and the result is an unbroken musical recasting that provides some unexpected twists and turn along the way. The psychedelic electronic sounds form extended electronic soundscape that are reminiscent of the work of Radian, Jan St. Werner and Blir – even reaching back to Porter Ricks’ subaquatic
creations, particularly when the tracks reach techno-feverish density and the electronics go acidotic rave. At times the entire sound is perforated by vermian processes that ghost casts the music, as if passing through an unfathomable time-space hole that warp and malforms the ongoings into deliciously irrational moments of stubborn unreasoning.”

We are so happy to release ‘Noise Band in My Garden‘ by Dako Loop Orchestra and Lezet.
Lezet introduces a true music hero, the inimitable Darko Jovanovic, to the Etched Traumas community, by means of a split/collab “why the dance rhythm? l definitely live in the loop, and I do things the way I should.”
Art Electronix comes back releasing with our netlabel offering you a straight remix EP of one of their tracks. Just like the style of the genre, this release is the stirring in various forms of the primal matter of the first track, and stil it renders a powerful shot of all the Artist’s feature.
But let Egene and Katerina themselves tell about the concept of “Inside The Box EP:
«At the end of this summer our colleague from Poland (who works under the pseudonym Ixirell) wrote to us to send him samples from the title track.
After that, we invited another DJ and musician from Ukraine (Breaksage) to write down his version as well.
The cover was developed by the VJ Lena Dzhurina.
The concept of this work is primarily in the minimalism and psychological mental hooks, which often have to be worked out by creative people working with a limited set of tools. Thus, the idea of this collection is an example of how a musician using a small set of instruments, depending on personal perceptions, skills and psychological qualities, is able to come up, develop and transform a certain musical idea, inviting an outside observer to immerse himself in the inner world of the creator and his approach.
And it is this minimal approach that suggested the title of the track, since the music was made using only two box devices (a bass synth and a drum machine).
We recently learned about the experiment of Ludwig Wittgenstein, who showed that people are not able to understand each other to the end. This experiment was called “The Beetle in a Box” and we were interested in the concept that there are many interpretations of how the creative idea should develop and only when compared with already known paradigms a person can make some sort of conclusion, such as: it’s original, and it is primitive, or it pleases, and it saddens, but these conclusions can still be wrong or misunderstood. Therefore, we decided to tie together the idea of imperfection of human relations, the frequent inability to correctly understand one’s inner world and the chance to minimalism, as a way to return to the source. To that state without piling up with all sorts of concepts, where you can try to realize what kind of “Beetle or bug” is inside your box, and also whether you can be considered a beetle what lies in your neighbor’s box».
Edition number 7 of the popular Digital Family compilation series. 11 unreleased tunes, carefully orchestrated by label conductors Alic.
On the decks you can find new talents like Whoknowswhocares, Stoertebeker, Medular, Nicorus or Adamson (aka 50% of Alic), MNGRM, One Dub Connection and well-known label-veterans such as Trilingo, Daäna, Bratenschneider and Point! Expect deep groovers, progressive hypnotics, chunky breaks and melodic minimalism.
Energy is harnessed from natural elements by the use of power plants and this industrial EP shines a light on the inner workings of such places. Each power plant has a different feel and process but heavy basslines and tight rhythms will ensure a continuous operation.
Only two personel of this band, Jose a.k.a Pepenk dan his wife. the materials ideas are based on his life journey, start from dating until married. even now, they have kids!. Enjoy three disco track from them
The Spacebirds project was born in 2008 in Moscow. The composition of the group is an ironic understanding of synth dance music 1980-1990-ies and, in the first place, from genres such as New Wave, Synthpop, Spacesynth, Disco, Synthdance. Most of the songs Spacebirds recorded using children’s musical instruments (synthesizers Casio SA-21, SA-46, etc.), mobile analog gadgets (Volca Series from Korg) and even software based on Android (Caustic-3, SunVox, etc.). Spacebirds music is upbeat, ironic “toy synthwave / post new-wave” with a strong sci-Fi and space themes and, of course, with nostalgia for 80 years. The project exists as in the format of One-Man-Band and a full lineup of three or four musicians.
is a project born from the spontaneous encounter between two Italian djs and producers: Alan Backdrop and Enrico Rlt. Their productions are the outcome of studio jam sessions, recorded live so as to capture the alchemy of the moment. The sound reflects their fascination with 90s electronic music, nature, and travelling.
Maximal techno and beyond. Filled with polyrhythmic melodies and offscale sounds, precisely controlled bass-lines, massive kicks and sharp percussions.
Scratchy analog electronic ruminations from a quiet veteran Ministik, that ebb and flow like natural processes of evolution, growth or/and decay.
Perception and alienation, with (re)use of techniques, sources, and designs are the main features in his work expressing the world as the artist sees it.
Strange shifting rhythms, finely shaped clouds of noise, and distant techno patterns. Ministik is not a normal DJ. This craftsman will invite you to lose yourself in the depths of the abstract sounds and surreal melodies on concrete based drum patterns.
“‘Fin del Tiempo’ (‘End of Time’) is not a religious work, although in the creative process, passages from the Bible were the source of inspiration for the concept; for this reason, included along with the download of the album is a PDF document with the verses used.
The ‘Non Human‘ robot has been reduced to the minimum expression, a microchip with software. This allows his artificial brain to survive practically intact to the holocaust of the ‘Fin del Tiempo’.
‘Fin del Tiempo’ is the conclusion of a series of works under one concept with the aliases of Gozne and Zacarías Malden.
‘Fin del Tiempo’ initiates the definitive fusion of styles, where the rhythmic essence of Gozne merges with the purely experimental style of Zacarías Malden.
‘Nation will rise against nation; there will be earthquakes in many places, hunger and turmoil, terror and signs in the heavens; it is necessary for this to happen, but it is not yet the end. ‘ (Jesus of Nazareth). This is also the ‘Fin del Tiempo’, believe it or not, it is already happening.
For this described above, it was appropriate to write the review and / or presentation of the work myself (Gozne), to take the opportunity to thank my family, while ending a stage of my musical career and at the same time initiating another that is more abstract and primitive, minimalist and practically binary, both in audio and video.”

Debut EP by Immortal Sun on Digital Diamonds! After releasing on Techgnosis Records, Immortal Sun delivers 4 fresh, exciting and groovy tracks, with that pinch of psychedelic. An innovative fusion between Progressive Minimal & Microhouse, cutting edge Melodic Techno!
“We are musicians who live and create at the edge of the world, who over two decades have worked to represent through sound and image various aspects of our habitat. ‘Ciencia Sur‘ (Southern Science) continues this trajectory, addressing the subject of field research. This work was conceived as a musical and audiovisual journey through the imposing landscapes of Patagonia and Antarctica, where science is developed in extreme conditions, as it seeks to answer transcendental questions about the past, present and future of the planet we inhabit.
The composition and recording of these works developed between July and September, combining the use of synthesizers with the use of unusual resources, such as the recording of sounds and electromagnetic emissions emitted by laboratory instruments and the conversion into sound of fossil images and diagrams concerning Climate Change through special software. We launched it in the framework of the opening of the IX Latin American Congress of Antarctic Science, an event that in early October 2017 brought together more than 300 researchers in the city of Punta Arenas (Chile).
The presentation of these works is accompanied by images provided by the Department of Communications and Education of the Chilean Antarctic Institute, which shows excavations in Cerro Guido (Torres del Paine commune), marine studies in the Magallanes channels, and images of the last two versions of the Antarctic Scientific Expedition (ECA), the latter including recordings made with drones on Chilean scientific bases in the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetlands.
For us, it is very important to link art with the science that is being realized in the territory that we inhabit, because we believe that being of the Magallanes concerns not only knowing about our regional past, but also in imagining a future based on the search for knowledge. This work is dedicated to the women and men who study both the remote past and the uncertain future, entering the southern bastions. There, between the wind and the ice, they are discovering the keys to our destiny.”
(Punta Arenas, Magallanes, Chile. Octubre / October 2017)
Fingerflood is an electronic music project born as a part of the many musical extensions of Gaetano Fontanazza.
What we have in this debut release, named “Beats and Stabs and Kick in Four,” is the strong intent to basically dive into the fat obscure electronic moods of dub techno, somehow near to the Berlin scene if you like. The release has an ideal split in the middle of its playlist, switching from dub techno to more dub idm-oriented tracks.
