Mahamboro

“Surup”

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

Cass Nova

“Microorganisms”

“Microorganisms” is a project that focuses on the innovation and composition of new sounds constructed from the cultivation of bacteria and fungi. A laboratory endeavor headed by the artist, based on recording the growth of organisms and their patterns of movement, which are then processed to give rise to sounds and, eventually, music.

While keeping technology very close at hand, Cass Nova also turns to more indigenous sounds, delivered by instruments with Latin American roots (such as Kultrún and Trutruka), which are recorded organically and which coexist in their respective musical pieces with scientific experimentation.

Secret Archives of the Vatican

“Reformation”

This was our first CD album, released in 1998. We have mixed feelings about it now…it was early days and we didn’t quite know what we were doing or even what we were trying to do.
If we were writing or recording these tunes now, we’d probably do everything differently. However – this is our history!
We don’t have a good file of the original artwork, so this is a new cover. There’s a small image of the original front cover included in the download.

Massimo Ruberti

“Granchite Yumtruso PT 2”

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.

Foshan Roots – Sky Warrior Dub

[DPH033]

Foshan Roots

“Sky Warrior Dub”

We are starting a new series of releases, exploring and re-discovering Springline Records, one of the most underrated reggae and dub labels. It has been operational from 2003 until 2012, releasing music on vinyl, on audio tapes and later in digital format. With artists coming mainly coming from the UK underground, the style of the label was strongly influenced by the Jamaican roots music of the 70s with a sound very kin to that of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s Black Ark studio.

But the resemblance to Black Ark studio goes far more than just the sound and the music. After 10 years of operation, two vinyl releases and many tapes and digital releases the label stopped its operations. All releases were discontinued in 2013 & all master recordings were lost or destroyed or on purpose deleted/thrown away, with the owner of the label deciding to put an end to that musical adventure. What is left nowadays are some articles and reviews on the internet, reminding the era of a great label, which unfortunately did not get the recognition it deserved.

All this happened at the time when Dubophonic was just starting its own musical adventure in 2013. We don’t know if it was meant to be, if a higher force controls everything and connects everything together, but thanks to Gibsy Rhodes, owner of Springline Records, we got our hands on some crucial tunes found forgotten on a hard disc, which was saved from destruction. Ruff takes, dubplates, alternative cuts, demos and a few unreleased works; a true treasure to our ears!

From our new series entitled The lost archive of Springline Records comes Sky Warrior Dub. It was never released before, until today! Foshan Roots was formed as a studio band by Thomas Dewey and Brad Turner in the summer of 2012 in the UK, working together on various projects (Roots, Reggae, Dub). Being able to establish a great connection and to overstand each other telepathically, the musical workings just started flowing. The name of their band reflects the vibes of their music.

All recordings & mixes were done in their own studio (CAF Studios) named after a very inspirational roots album. Brad & Tom play all the instruments themselves, shared out equally, so to give a different feel each time. Sky Warrior Dub consists of nine dubwise tracks in a deep rootikal style, reflecting the mystical vibes of the band! Welcome to Foshan Roots, the peaceful ZEN-warriors. Enjoy the journey to Jah music!

Amorgos Soundscape – Nikos Theologitis / Stamatis Theologitis / Giannis Theologitis / Antoni Robert

[ET116]

Nikos Theologitis / Stamatis Theologitis / Giannis Theologitis / Antoni Robert

“Amorgos Soundscape”

The notion of folk culture has definitely been transformed through the course of the centuries. More particularly, tradition and its authenticity and spontaneity in the context of orality seem somehow to have been mutilated and reconstructed, as soon as globalization and multiculturalism became one of the dominant discourses during the 21st century. Folk songs haven’t been an exclusion in this particular case, as revivalism and folklorism have emerged as a devastating force in the production of folk music. In “Amorgos Soundscape” by Antoni Robert, a paradox occurs: One could say that these folk songs are seen through the eyes of a foreign visitor and the recording could be seen as an exotic sound diary of a trip on a Greek Island. On the other hand, Antoni Robert’s recordings of the Theologitis’ family of musicians reveal an impressive approach on the concept of orality and its proud survival in the Greek folk culture.

Antoni Robert talks about Amorgos Soundscape:

“This is my fourth soundscape, but it is of a totally different nature with respect to the previous ones. Initially, I just wanted to proceed in a similar way that I did for the St Petersburg one, but once on the island, I realized that this idea was not adequate. St Petersbourg is a noisy place, while Amorgos it is not. Generally speaking, the island soundtrack is the wind and the sea. And at once the title “Wind on Water” came to my mind, but unfortunately, that title was already used by Fripp & Eno. But it was adequate indeed. I had the chance to listen to some goats also; the island is the hometown for a huge quantity of goats. So I was wondering about those simple things when it happened. It was dinner time, and we went to the small town of Tholaria looking for a taverna, and we found the Panorama Tavern. We started dining and at a given moment the musicians appeared and started to play great music from the islands. I recorded two complete sets, in two unforgettable nights. More than four hours of live performance. And I was said they do it every night. Once at home, while listening to that music I understood that it would have been inadequate to edit bits of it in order to build something more personal. The main feeling was a deep respect for the work of those musicians, and so the best thing to do was to choose two or three songs and use them as they were performed, in spite of the recording problems and the noise of the taverna clients. The only things I’ve added are the intro and the links between songs because wind and sea had to be there anyway. The results are a real soundscape of a dinner at Panorama Tavern, with the music played by three real artists. Stamatis Theologitis plays the violin and sings, Giannis Theologitis plays Laouto and sings, and the great Nikos Theologitis, 90 years old at the moment of the recording, and the owner of the tavern sings, claps hands, dances and explains jokes whenever he wants. I don’t know if I will reach that age. Probably not. But if I ever I’m 90 years old I want to be like Nikos. A happy man full of energy and passion. So this soundscape is a respectful tribute to The Theologitis Trio. It is their record. The rock band is The Cave Children, from Athens, included because our stay there coincided with a 4 days rock festival, and it was a part of the soundtrack too.”

Downbeat – Introspección

[DPH029]

Downbeat

“Introspección”

Downbeat is a project that mutates, changes with the time, transforms itself with life, without limits and without borders. Their second album takes the sound a step further towards experimentation. Downbeat look at their interior and connect themselves with genres they always got inspired from: Dub, Dubtronica, Jazz and Fusion.

“Introspección” is the beating of their heart, each heartbeat navigated by a different state of mind. Looking at oneself is like a magical journey within, guided by the mystical power of the ancestral plants.

The dub sounds are present throughout the album with atmospheric musical landscapes. This is not the typical dub album, trying to look like its coming out from an island … this is the dub of the mountain … the dub of the Andes … the dub of the Aconcagua … the dub of Las Heras. That’s why it’s hard, dark, cold and different. That is why it has power, hypnotism, strength and a sound of its own.

Let us navigate within ourselves, with the heart pulsating on each beat. Heavy Dub, experimental Dub, dedicated to the universe and its infinite power. A triangle for all to travel (SOUND-LIGHT-SHAPE)!

Various Artists

“POSEV II”

Siberian cohesive post-industrial creative association POSEV presents the second compilation of tracks from its members and their sympathizers. All tracks are exclusive to this release and have never been presented before.

Our music is always the part of us, our personalities, and our lives. It describes the perception and exploration of the world. We make music because we have something to say and we must talk. We make music because we can’t but do it. Thus, our legacy is given to the world.

Our creation is a self-decrypting manifesto for ones who want to feel the other side of synthesizer music and look beyond the rhythm and sounds. We are too far from any scenes to imitate them. We’re too original to meet someone’s standards. We don’t do what others want to hear from us. We do what we want to hear ourselves.

Dubrajah

“Reprise”

Our first release of 2017 and the second one on the label by the Russian social anthropologist and ethnomusicologist Sergey Gabbasov and his project Dubrajah is coming your way. You already know his release from year 2014 entitled “Enkang”, though which we discovered the artist’s ability to fuse a deep digital dub style with organic sounds, traditional African melodies and chants from the people of Maasai, Datooga, Hadza, Pemba and Zanzibar tribes.

The new album entitled “Reprise” uses the same musical recipe, but with different ingredients. It was recorded last year in Russia, Nepal and India and includes 8 new tracks by the Russian artist. By this album Dubrajah delivers his returning to the start and principal point of his researches – to Asia. Using sampled sounds from India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Mongolia, we are led into a magnificent dub journey through Asia. New sounds and vibrations, new destinations and inspirations!

All tracks recorded in Jaisalmer (India), Sauraha (Nepal) and Moscow (Russia) in March/November 2016. Photography by Sergey Gabbasov.
