TWG has always prided itself in its genre diversity. With the fourth in our line of final releases, Whitely brings us what is easily his most surprising and one of his best realised pieces yet. Indian influenced ambient music, with ethereal vocals provided by Whitely himself, thick in atmosphere, emotion and tension.
There is not much else that can be said about this release, other than it’s Whitely as you’ve never heard him before, a listening experience that is an experience as much as it is a journey, and that we’re incredibly proud to have this here on TWG. Not necessarily chiptune, but incredible all the same.
Chiptune is dead anyway, right?
The second album by VAD where he continues to mix mellow electronic music elements with traditional slavic folk songs. Rich colorful tunes from the past will blend into your present, filling it with long wanted balance and harmony whilist modern touch to it will make it fresh and alluring. Enjoy!
The Red Star Martyrs return with the 2nd EP on Dubophonic. This time the UK musician and producer Stanley Wood unleashes the herbal energy of tea, brewing some special blends, mixing the finest musical flavours of Europe, Jamaica, Orient and Occident in a tasty and relaxing chill out drink. Alongside with him, many artists from the Dubophonic netlabel family. Ibel, The Dubbstyle, Mr Mefistou and Koncrete Roots prepared their own special recipes and are ready to serve their exclusive versions of Stanley’s riddim. So, sip your cup and let the journey begin.
The EP starts with the taste of mint in our mouth, as the oriental vibes flow inna mystical way in the atmosphere. The river of tranquillity passes right in front of us, as we embark in a journey, that sets our mind and soul in a perfect balance. The magical voice of Ibel guides us ina Rub-a-dub journey of irieness, as he prepares his special Jamaican blend of tea, served in two different mixes.
The sounds of the far east travel to Argentina where mint receives a special treatment by the Dubbstyle, being mixed with the yerba mate leaves, only to be transformed into a antioxidant and cholesterol-lowering beverage, cleansing the body from all Babylon diseases. The logical outcome is the cleansing also of the mind and Mr Mefistou uses his double ethnical background and adds for the next recipe a touch of flamenco style guitar mixed with a New York influenced sound.
Finally our herbal beverage returns back to the country it started its journey, only to be chilled in the fridge and to be served with ice by the Koncrete Roots inna special dubplate style. Once we are cleansed, in body and in spirit, we can enjoy the last cup of tea served exactly at five o’clock by Stanley Wood himself. Give thanks for that wonderful journey!
“Sāqiya gazes at history. Beautiful sounds, coming from the sea. Music scores written by amanuenses. Tarantellas intertwined in baroque embroideries, in a game of disguise, on allusive grooves. Bright and colorful wonders. Virtuous words drawn from an endless dictionary at the crossroads of cultures: Arab, French, and above all Spanish. Stories of encounters, exchanges, smiles, yet stories of oppression.”

styles and sounds as diverse as art rock, kraut, world music, 70s, 90s and current electronic music melt together in a fully unique combination.
we call it “electronic artpop” and as such it offers a plethora of musical experiences. leaving traditional song structures behind, each track tells its own story, ranging from the dub/reggae influenced “ernesto” to the epic “i am a strange loop” which combines folk elements with ethnic drums and ambient style spheric sounds.
not convinced? then start your journey through these vast sound scapes by listening to “transformations”, an ever changing and evolving acoustic work of art.
What if Megaman soundtracks were written by Zan-Zan-Zawa-Veia? Seemingly hell-bent on finding out the answer to this, AutoReMi-PK’s TWG debut, ‘BRKN’, goes to great lengths to be a blinding mixture of experimental esotericism and melody-driven pop-esque hookery, and the evidence to his success is here in abundance.
From the epic space swoons of ‘Subroutine Traffic Stop…’ to the manic energy and dissonant beauty of ‘Dys4-1A’, every inch of ‘BRKN’ is stylistically eclectic and robust, melodically affecting and compositionally complex. Where ‘BRKN’ excels best is its ability to mix those heart-rending melodies into vigorous and rewarding compositions. The melodies of ‘Rules and Regalia…’ call into mind the heydays of Bit Shifter, ‘Requiem (Our Stolen Future)’ ends with soft but emotively poignant sweeps of motifs, and ‘We Never Sleep/Artemidorus’ moves from crunchy experimentalism into a melody that defines the term ‘tearjerker’.
‘BRKN’ is an album as well as a journey. Every track slips into the next as a continuous piece and the effect is infectious. A consistent aural and emotive assault, every turn and shift as unforgettable as the preceding, every arp brimming with emotion and every passage a piece of compositional masterpiece that ticks the boxes of both rational talent and emotive creativity. Those who have already decided their albums of the year may have been slightly pre-emptive; on his debut, AutoReMi-PK has already solidified his place as an incredibly talented composers, and ‘BRKN’ as one of the scene’s best offerings in some time.
Alejandro Remeseiro aka “Konsumprodukt” has been haunting the internet for quite some time now. And over all these years he has achieved something very rare in this wannabe soundalike world of home music production: he has developed an unmistakable sound of his own – a wild and disturbingly happy hybrid of Bossanova, Disco, Latin and Acid Jazz, spiced up with tons of voice samples. Guaranteed to bring some sunshine into gray autumn days.

It all started with a midi keyboard he received as birthday present back in 2012. The young producer from southern Germany was always influenced by the vibes of Roots Reggae, Dub and as well Jungle and Drum and Bass music. It was merely a matter of time until he started producing his own sounds. Nothing is stronger than an idea, whose time has come. And the time for Karma Dub’s first release has arrived.
Karma is an ancient concept, a Sanskrit word meaning ‘act’, ‘action’, or ‘word’. The law of karma teaches us that all of our thoughts, words and actions begin a chain of cause and effect, and that we will personally experience the effects of everything we cause. It is clear that Karma Dub is deeply influenced by the eastern cultures and their music. Nevertheless he successfully manages to incorporate in his work heavy basslines and irie melodies, elements rooted in the Jamaican music.
Karma Dub’s first album is a higher level of concentrated musical meditation. Each tune leads to the next state of mind. It is therefore important to listen to the tunes in the correct order. Just press PLAY and close your eyes.
Imagine yourself being a wandering monk, who has chosen to live a life apart from or on the edges of society. You travel from orient to occident, gathering knowledge as you meet different cultures, practicing your musical spirituality. Being conscious about your environment, you let your environment assimilate with your I and I. The stillness of your mind enables you to observe and gain insight into the changing flow of your experiences. As you arrive to the western world, the music changes, the bass gets heavier picking up the frequencies of your heartbeat. Keeping your eyes shut, your mind is still consciously receiving every vibration of your surroundings. What is happening to you is actually very easy to explain. You are experiencing Karma Dub’s vibes on your everyday life. It’s your Karma to be hypnotised!
Linear Obsessional is delighted to release this exciting collaboration between the great British maverick slide guitarist Mike Cooper and the Chinese Sheng virtuoso Yan-Chiu Leung.
“We had never met each other before this concert. We had exchanged a few mp3s to give each other an idea of what musical oceans we both float in and then attempted to navigate our way together by free improvisation toward some distant shore. I think we arrived at a beautiful island together finally. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Many special thanx to Yang Yeung, Alice Wong, Yuk Mui Law, Edwin Lo and to everyone who came on the Lamma Island soundwalk”
-Mike Cooper July 2013
Recorded January 26th at Youth Square Dance Studio by Anthony Yeung as part of the Around Sound Art Festival 2013 organized by Soundpocket.
Mike Cooper played an F1 Resophonic Tri-Plate guitar / Zoom Track Sampler / Kaos Pad / Boss Pitch Shifter-Delay pedal / Top Gear Fuzz Box and Harmonica.
Yan-Chiu Leung played a variety of Sheng ( a free reed Chinese wind instrument)
This album is the fruit of our love of art. This means you can listen to it, dance to it, play it, cut it up and share it without spending a single yen. Those who have participated range from stars of underground Ukrainian dance, to Spanish comic authors. A.F.A.’s only aim is to have fun and to share what we make with as many people as possible so they can have fun with us. Or they can hate us and want to strangle us with a spiky wire. As long as it’s with love, anything goes.
The story of Djirbil and Faida is like a fairy tale and is just as amazing as their music. Djibril was born in the suburbs of Paris back in 1986 and started making music by playing guitar, bass and drums in punk rock bands in the north of France and Belgium, while later he landed from punk to reggae/dub/jungle through some friends who were operating a sound system. The other half of the band, Faida AKA Sister Raphaelle, was born 1986 in Mamoudzou, Comoros, between Madagascar and Mozambique. She started singing from childhood, influenced by the soul of the African music. 1996 she arrives to France to live in the suburbs of Paris.
The two got closer together during one of their gigs as members of the Acoustic Groove Orchestra and their love story has led into marriage. Their new life was accompanied by the creation of a new band, 2 years ago. Since then they are composing and recording their own music in their own home studio under the name of Zion Dirty Sound.
Their music is an amalgamation of different styles and is the result of the different cultures they both represent. The African/Comodian roots blend with the Europrean/French music, all fused nicely with arab/indian/latino culture, influenced by their social life and their travels around the world. Add a touch of dub and you got magic going through your ears!
“Fils d’ Abraham” is a compilation of Zion Dirty Sound’s best music from previous releases and from tracks scattered around the internet, plus we exclusively included four brand new tracks. Load them on your media player, press the play button and embark on an ethnic journey of irieness. Feel the vibes and follow the journey of Djibril and Faida from Africa to Latin America over Europe, on their quest to interact with different cultures and search through music for a higher vision of life.

Welcome to the eternal summer in the gardens of hip-hop! Life here is easy. Let yourself be refreshed by the light sampling breeze, away from hectic lifestyles and noisy streets. Dressed with an immaculate white kimono, you will be baptized in the fountain of holy funkiness, while angelic voices sing softly over non-quantized rhythms. Immerse yourself into Biga’s universe and let the dream come true.

although “no babble” is the first release of CoEx on tonAtom or any netlabel, klaus vormehr is far from being a newcomer. having worked with several well-known acts in the music industry and after two self-named records in the 1990s, CoEx is back in 2012.
CoEx adds another country – ireland – to the tonAtom map. and CoEx adds a new facet to the tonAtom styles of music with his own sound between sequential music and live improvisation, influenced by dub reggae, afro beat and art rock.
9 instrumental tracks, well-polished and mostly electronic. served with some topping of violins or percussion resulting in what the artist’s bio rightly calls the CoEx signature sound.
