singularity beginnt und endet auf der gleichen note: der emotionalen ehrlichkeit. hopkins. beeinflusst von jahrelangen erfahrungen mit meditation und transzendenz. bewegt sich durch ein universum. das sich langsam aufbaut. immer weiter ausdehnt und dann wieder zu einem winzig kleinen punkt schrumpft. nahtlos geht es dabei von rauem techno zu choralen melodien. von solo-piano etappen zu psychedelischem ambient. wo immunity sich in die dunkle realität einer epischen club nacht stürzte. erkundet singularity die dissonanzen zwischen urbanem leben und grüner natur. die verbindung von geist. klang und umwelt und vertont so die verschiedenen geistigen zustände. in denen hopkins sich während des schreib und aufnahmeprozesses befand. limitiertes blaues 180 gramm doppel-vinyl im klappcover. downloadcode inklusive.
this is the first album of borusiade. in which she takes her music to a new level. finding her very own expression. that is making us first shiver then sweat. then chill and finally melt. cómeme starts 2018 by proving again to be a safe haven and a sanctuary for sensitive plants and unique characters devoted to music just like miruna boruzescu aka borusiade from bucharest who conquered the radio stations of our parallel worlds and utopian desire. dream catcher was the name of the show. and jeopardy. a nocturnal ep. her first release on vinyl.

with el tunel / proceso . marc pinol and hugo capablanca aced their blend of industrial. acid. techno and new beat in an ep that remains one of the most celebrated moments in the hivern catalogue. now. the evasive duo return to set the bar even higher. four years might seem quite a lot of time. but for c.p.i. it was the necessary period to get rid of expectations and let space for something new to emerge. studio sessions in places like berlin. barcelona. and belgrade brought together an amalgam of voices. spontaneous liasons. mutations and surprising movements that finally crystallised in the four cuts that conform meine hand . masa y poder and sendero luminoso are two sides of the same coin. under all the layers. both ride exactly the same rhythm. two completely different paths that share a common starting point. one builds tension on the dancefloor. the other one tries to fool the threat in the mist. with it s unrelenting acid bassline and lethargic vocals. meine hand feels like some kind of love from above. yet another unexplainable conclusion. ninos de belgrado are. in fact. the children of belgrade. high on drugs. an impending sense of doom. longing for wasted years or perhaps an external threat lurking. who knows. vinyl comes in a standard black cover with insert by designer arnau pi.
apollo proudly presents the return of sw. joined by partner svn for a sublime 6 track ep. sws lush sound design and hypnotic arrangements of 2017s the album had hearts and minds swooning following its license from sued to apollo. its balmy glory won over pitchfork (deeply expressive debut album 8/10). rolling stone (best electronic albums 2017) and xlr8r (best releases 2017) amongst many others. one year later. sw and svn have gone into the studio. together to make some original music specifically for apollo. the results are the 6 tracks on this ep. they share in a typically taciturn statement. taking inspiration from the iconic house and techno of the mid / late 90s - sw and svn combine dreamy melodies and mesmeric grooves with unfussy. focussed minimalism. their beguiling. modern take on classic sounds and rhythms remains thrillingly unique and elusive. while sw and svn are more comfortable out of the limelight. this 6 track ep for apollo once again proves that they are rightly worthy of the hype that swirls around them.

dutch label field records is back with another special album project. this time from japanese producer ena aka yu asaeda. bridge is an introspective soundtrack for a documentary also called bridge - out this spring - which is about the dejima bridge. a reconstructed symbol of the dutch-japanese trading history in nagasaki. japan. the album finds the producer stepping outside of his usual remit of dark ambient and experimental music. and instead comprises ten shorter tracks that touch on abstract and rhythmic sounds that define the essence of japanese culture. although he has worked with the director before. this is ena s first original sound track and finds him freely inspired by the movie and heading in exciting and unknown directions. hugely atmospheric throughout. there is hypnotic repetition of sounds. strange audio design and a mixture of melancholic moods with more dreamy synths. sometimes gloopy rhythms gently ripple beneath soothing harmonies and at others times a micro-rhythm appears through the constantly shifting and evolving found sound loops. it s a compelling and unusual album that seamlessly mixes human emotions with a mechanical sense of industry.

attention: the case has a broken corner. ltd 180 copies - incl dl code . this cassette collects some of these stills. or better said freeze frames. freeze frames that become almost landscapes that one can enter or not. listen closely to or use as mere background ambience. wilson went in and untied the knot. yet while investigating the situation. posing more questions. this is as open-ended a release can get. so captiously simple. i met andrew wilson. (aka berko. art wilson. andras). a few months ago in tokyo where we were both to perform on a sort of balearic ambient variety show in the heart of shibuya. at some point andrew was telling me about his interest in youtube videos of truck accidents. animals attacking people and bloopers. with creating one-shot samples of these sort of popular fringe finds he started creating long-form drones of harmonic beauty. without being overtly and subjectively emotional. wilson presented some of these pieces on said night in tokyo. in a dandyesque manner all dressed in white. sitting behind a small restaurant table
exactly one year after their sold-out debut album zest. die orangen (aka dreems & kris baha) are zurück! malka tuti and die orangen have concocted a double dish. a two part remix package. saft 1 & saft 2. the first part consists of a new live version of the track yaranabe. recorded in a live session as part of the duo’s infamous analogue live act. a2 is tapan’s remix of metal man. the poem-not-poem is taking shape as a low bpm banger when tapan’s heavy signature kick meets those trippy vocals. this is tapan’s first track to be made after finishing their debut album last year on mt. and its an interesting evolution of their sound. slow dark and punchy. yet with these vocals and bassline. also a catchy post-pop track for the later hours. on the b-side lies gordon pohl’s reimagination of mersey river (aka “the platypus track”). the tracks “epic-. long slow ambient opening and evolution into rhythm resembles in many ways the psychedelic collaboration works of the late pete namlook & move d on namlooks own fax records. which was always a significant influence on the malka tuti world.
