OVERFLOW POOL (12 INCH, 180 G VINYL, REVBOARD SLEEVE)
12" Vinyl, 180 g +mp3 D12.07.16
some records just barely nudge your consciousness, but they do so in such an intriguing manner that their tentativeness and ephemerality lure you in deeper than you expect. such is the case with overflow pool by mogador, a new project by will long. this prolific producer—who is best known for his profoundly meditative ambient music under the name celer—favors the longform, beatless approach to composition, as he lets his rigorously honed tones unspool with a gentle insistence.

italian dj and producer manuel fogliata hasnt released a lot of records over the last ten years, but the few he has put out have always been worth tracking down. perhaps best known for his work alongside donato dozzy in creating the much sought-after aquaplano records at the tail end of the last decade, nuels solo outings have been just as consistent and just as impressive.

in april of this year, donato dozzy took a set of mouth harps back to his parents house in the italian countryside and set about exploring the possibilities of that most basic of instruments. the mouth harp had been calling to dozzy ever since childhood, when he had discovered the marranzano on a holiday in sicily with this parents at the tail end of the 1970s. almost four decades later, dozzy had begun to see in this peculiar, ancient sound, the roots of the music hed been making and playing in clubs all these years. it was time to find out how far he could trace it all back. the loud silence is the result of those explorations, an accompanied deep-dive into childhood memory, social history and the roots of psychedelia.
nice price deal !!! helping listeners to escape reality, which has been known to grate, on occasion, has long been a noble aim of many musicians. one of the most effective ways to do that is to create imaginary soundtracks for impossible science-fiction films, the darker and more un hollywood-like, the better. another method is to take inspiration from great works of architecture, which, as goethe cogently noted, is frozen music. the latter route is used by brooklyn producer jonas reinhardt (aka jesse reiner) on his sixth album, palace savant. reiner undergoes a profound solo odyssey on this album. the vinyl lp includes a download code.
the a-side, spiral 7, is a pensive, evolving slow motion deep techno voyage across rolling waves of exhausted dancers while on the flip side spiral 4 dives beneath the surface with broken submarine bleeps and acoustic depth charges before spiral 3 finally drops anchor into a bottomless ocean of downbeat pulses. debut release from the melbourne, australia musician.
parisian artist nautil is a music student specialising in acoustics, signal processing, and informatics. his debut single, canopée, utilises analog synths, sampling and personal recordings to emphasize the geometrics of nature and music. on the a-side the lead track, canopée, is a cavernous, pulsing, low-frequency techno colossus destined to hypnotise dark warehouse spaces. on the reverse galdae is a propulsive tecnoid tweaker while mue is designed for head rolling after hours with mesmeric synth drones suspended over a brain melting sub-bass pulse.
nice price deal !!! do you ever listen to a record and worry about its creators sanity? granted, it rarely happens, but in the case of innercity (antwerp producer hans dens) it is a legitimate concern.

those who know the respected irish producer john daly for his bubbly, melodically nuanced house and techno tracks may get thrown off balance by his latest work under the smoke clears handle. while his 2011 release for further, sea level, hinted at his fondness for manuel göttsching/klaus schulze-like kosmische ambience, on listen daly veers off into more introverted and arcane abstraction terrain. the title track kicks off the album on a decidedly downtempo, contemplative note while maintaining dalys knack for understatedly beautiful melodies. it sounds like the best song morr music never released.
deep house veteran john daly (wave, drumpoet, plak & mule, feel music) delivers, with two epic tracks recorded to tape in one take using live hardware. the a-sides haze mix features expansive mind bending synths unfurling over 20 pulsating minutes into an ebbing, cascading dub-trance masterpiece. the b-sides aerosol mix redirects the intensity to the floor with relentless beats & crashing claps complementing the extra melancholy synth refrain on a bin-rattling 45rpm cut.
