friendship reflected through machines. beyond belief ep is composed by lmml owns diogo magalhaes & alexander einetter aka old dog. this piece unites self-recorded sounds, analogue machines & modular recordings into a more experimental take on electronic music. organically grown by time, vision and their friendship. side b, created by cezar lazar (understand) & cristi cons (amphia), presents their own interpretation of ruten moshi. cezar has always been true to himself & a great inspiration to us. creating a new collaboration with cristi cons, part of an avantgarde classical/electronic music generation.

this second release on dialegestai is our homage to romanian minimal house and techno music. one track by a household name, the other by the equally talented - but still very unknown - vlad radu. in our humble opinion both tracks have a certain unique quality and vibe to them. the question minimal and trippy, the answer haunting and mysterious :) we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
its not a simple thing to write about your own tunes. your concept is innate, the music itself is in your mind and comes out as a natural flow, talking about it is a different thing. this time i wanted to come up with something different for my new ep on vakant. something unexpected for the ones who know cesare vs disorders sound.
we are very proud to present a doubtingthomas vinyl release on metroline limited! capharnauem is a very trippy affair across 3 tracks, 2 originals from aurelien and a remix from the uber talented romanian producer from arpiar fame, cristi cons. off the grid, the opener, stays within the grid until 3/4 of its lenght. a tight kick leads the way with the help of a pulsating bass and some lush pads in typical doubtingthomas style. the off moment happens after the mid way point when the free jazz element comes in and shuffles the groove off the grid!
bpv003 - trouble ep is represented by german artist with ukrainian roots - kashawar. great job done on a side in collaboration with cristi cons, whos remix is about serious mood, groove and mysterious atmosphere.
b side is diverse, bringing some deep, dub feelings, together with minimalistic sound on the other hand.

azimute, das sind cesare marchese und der einigen techno-insidern nicht unbekannte schweizer philippe quenum. was die beiden zusammen fabrizieren lässt uns tatsächlich sprachlos zurück: obwohl sie gerade mal auf sieben releases zurückblicken, haben die zwei es doch tatsächlich geschafft in kürzester zeit auf labels wie crosstown rebels oder sogar transmat zu landen… und jetzt auch noch den weg auf cocoon recordings gefunden! ihr titel „the secret“ gibt ein wenig vor, was wir gerade beschrieben haben, denn momentan kann man azimute noch wirklich als geheimtipp bezeichnen. ihr cocoon release dürfte einer unserer releases mit dem höchsten soul-faktor sein. betörende vocals, klackernde percussion-sounds aus den untiefen des techno-klanguniversums und im zusätzlichen house-mix noch mal alles mit warmen und hypnotischen filter chords dekoriert servieren uns azimute eine produktion mit unglaublich viel tiefgang. azimute erwischt uns hier voll auf dem richtigen fuß, die beiden originalversionen werden uns noch lange über die kommenden wochen begleiten. als bonus gibt es noch einen cristi cons remix obendrauf. in bester villalobos oder cadenza spielart entfaltet dieser über sage und schreibe 11 minuten und 34 sekunden seinen minimalvibe und öffnet damit noch mal eine weitere faszinierende musikalische tür. drei versionen, die alles aber nicht gewöhnlich sind und die hier seit tagen in heavy rotation laufen! mile grazie azimute!
presenting the debut vinyl only release from berlin based label baumbaum. take a walk into a vast jungle of atmospheres and landscapes with zefzeed s two original productions, showcasing utter class in production and groove as well as a ultimately unique experience for the ears. cristi cons throws in a mind-blowingly powerful momentum with his remix, a sound that will undoubtably fill the floors and send goosebumps into the crowd.
colorhadoo makes his amphia debut with two enticing tracks while cristi cons delivers the house s remix. on the a side we are presented with * j strawbberry*, an atmospheric track which slowly slips away into a mind-bending realm, where broken voices come and go under different shapes and the listener is engaged by occasional eclectic explosions. a beautiful work and trouble waiting to happen when properly used. side b has cristi cons taking the interpretation duties of the main track. the remix keeps the general mood of the original with a twist, everything is wrapped around a tight groove with shattering low end work, ideal for those early mornings. we continue with * zanzibar*. this second track on side b takes the artistic vision into reverse. no more voices to be heard, huge spaces are reduced to just a solid groove. the track is guided by hypnotic pads and sounds while the emblematic percussion section is conducted by none other than colorhadoo himself. dont listen to this in the dark!
