Various Artists - Zoom In 12: New Art Music From Lithuania [Music Information Centre Lithuania]

Coming in as the 100th release of the Music Information Centre Lithuania-label is "Zoom In 12: New Art Music From Lithuania", the twelfth edition of the imprints "Zoom In"-series which focuses on introducing the countries compository talent to the world, this time bringing on seven live recorded pieces that were played in concert in between 2015 and 2017. Emphasizing on a younger generation of composers all born past 1970 the album opens with Egidija Medeksaite's "Megh Malhar" which comes across as an enchanted crossover of Minimal Music, Contemporary Classical and Ambient whereas Juste Janulyte brings forth calm, beautiful explorations and meditations on and in the instrument mentioned with "Harp Is A Chord" and Marius Baranauskas' "Delta Cephei" is as sci-fi as its title suggests in its minimalist, yet spatial, score'esque and extremely thrilling combination of tam-tam and cello which makes this one our favorite pick on this compilation. Furthermore Julius Aglinskas caters a little hint of heartfelt, string-performed kitsch with his barely titled "...", "Tapisserie" by Justina Repeckaite combines haunting brass and strings with stripped down, sparse, meandering yet seemingly slightly Jazz-infused piano repetitions and "No Sense" by Dominykas Digimas balances its (Neo)Classical feel with brooding tension noir and manages to keep all listeners senses on high alert over the tunes total runtime of nine minutes. Finally Zibuokle Martinaityte presents the compilations final and longest piece with the roughly 18 minutes spanning "Chiaroscura Trilogy" which brings high level drama to the table for an intense closing. Defo another interesting overview of Lithuania's experimental composition scene one should not miss out on.

Alpines - Out Of View (Official Video)

What a track! Ethereal vocals meets orginal 90s-infused Rave-/ Proto BigBeat-influences beatwise and make up for a first class banger. We're deeply impressed!

Moon Relay - Imi [Hubro Music]

Scheduled for release on the ever active Norwegian Hubro Music-imprint is "Imi", the second full length album outing by the Oslo-based quartet Moon Relay which caters a menu of six new tracks with unpronounceable titles fully made up of punctuation marks and other symbols. This abstract approach perfectly fits the bands spaced out, muscular sound which evokes memories of the late phase of Depth Charge's DC Recordings label catering a trippy, often well psychedelic instrumental brew of PostPunk, MutantDisco and (Neo)Cosmic elements and an intransigent will to experiment with sound, no matter if the single tracks are driven by a hard hitting, brutalist Rock snare or a straight 4-2-the-floor beat whilst the third transmission even branches out into haunting Score Ambient territories and other tracks explore the twilight zone in which Downbeat and Electro cross over, without even losing on the PostPunk-approach imminent in each and every track of this album that's about to hit the stores on October 19th, 2k18. Interesting stuff, this and a quite unusual release for the Hubro Music label.

Catherine Christer Hennix - Selected Early Keyboard Works [Empty Editions / Blank Forms Promo]

Put on the circuit as a joint venture release between Empty Editions and Blank Forms are Catherine Christer Hennix' "Selected Early Keyboard Works" which hit the stores on September 7th, 2k18. Stemming from as early as 1976 the three recordings on this 2xLP vinyl with the first one split over both sides of the first record were extracted from rehearsal tapes for the 10-day "Dream Music Festival" taking place in the same year in Stockholm, an occasion on which the works of the Swedish composer were performed to the public. Opening with "Nouvelle Mode De Modalites / Nouvelle Mode De Modalites II" we see Catherine Christer Hennix perform freely, yet repetetively over a sine wave drone, bringing forth variations and alterations of an expressive motif coming from a surely psychedelia-induced dream world, with both parts still echo'ing the fresh promises and unexplored possibilities of the young electronic music scene at the time whilst also partially harking back to classical piano techniques over the course of both pieces with the second one providing a buzzing, slightly nervous and partly even jazzy twist without being related to Jazz at any point. With "The Well-Tuned Marimba" the Swedish artist evokes more fluid, dream-like memories of slowly morphing seas of psychedelic technicolour before the final, 24+ minutes lasting cut "Equal Temperament Fader Mix" employs virtuoso piano techniques on the Rhodes as well as advanced tape delays for a dusted, yet fascinating vintage sound that's highly fascinating up to this day.

Out Now: COMBAT DUBS [Intrauterin Recordings 006]

Yes, it's been quite a while since the last Intrauterin Recordings release but the label never ceased operations officially and now we're back with a new one! Watch out for sales and distribution onfo to come.

"Combat Dubs - Dub Murderation" - a statement that is well suitable for the next release on Hamburg's most underground vinyl imprint Intrauterin Recordings which already has been on the scene since 1999.

Led by a vocal sample of the labels mastermind baze.djunkiii this limited to 120 copies 7" whitelabel single does not only provide a unique and creative take on bass music - especially Grime, Dubstep and Breaks as well as some echoes of early Jungle / Breakbeats - but also proves how long term relationships in the music industry finally fall into place to create musical results as the COMBAT DUBS project is formed in between Intrauterin Recordings-founder baze.djunkiii and the multi-active producer Sascha Müller who's also been responsible for the labels' cat.no. 005 way back in 2005.

After nearly two decades of friendship baze.djunkiii and Sascha Müller finally joined the studio together for the first time in early 2018 for a session with only the name COMBAT DUBS in mind and a rough plan to dig deep into the realms of bass music for their very first collaborational effort. Fueled by this idea they churned out two tunes within less than eight hours from scratch, two variations on one main theme with one gravitating more towards the raw, unprocessed aesthetics of the early Grime scene whereas the second cut goes a little deeper, providing a smooth crossover between Dubstep and Breaks whilst an all embracing bass line and trancey strings are perfect tools to provide an ultimate lift off for late night crowds.

Le Crabe - Du Caviar A L'écran

Mutant HipHop on a well minimal tip. We really dig this.

North Atlantic Drift - Departures, Vol. 2 [Sound In Silence 053]

Making a return to the Greek Ambient imprint Sound In Silence after five long years is North Atlantic Drift, the collaborational duo of Mike Abercrombie and Brad Deschamps which is now ready to present their new album "Departures, Vol. 2" on the beloved label as a limited, hand-numbered edition of 150 copies. Their eight track and 49 minutes spanning journey starts with "Empty" in which the pair ventures into the lands of slow moving, deep Ambient beauty to pave the way for things to come whereas the follow up "Glow" provides a soft, solemn afterglow for warm summer nights, keeping up with faraway echoes of the minimal Post-PostRock employed by the pair in previous releases. Riding a "Carousel" we see North Atlantic Drift sonicly depict a naturalistic and innocent scenery in a combination of warm pads and what seems to be field recorded rumbles and crackling surface noise, "Good Intention I" harks back to rainy sunday afternoons and sweet, widescreen melancholia whilst producing in "Formation" combines a seemingly backward run background loop and carefully layered minor chords for genre aficionados. With "Good Intentions II" the pair of producers caters more classic Ambient flows, once again paired with bits and bops of crackling surface sounds, "Mountain Spectre" combines scraping digital distortions and a nine minutes flow of ethereal, levitating harmony and the final cut "Autumn" is as autumnal and inward-looking as its title itself whilst slightly bordering a bit of kitsch and Easy Listening for a closing. Ambient as Ambient can be.

Various Artists - Chronicles [ODrex Trip 012]

Released in October, 2k17 but only coming in recently was "Chronicles", the latest compilation effort put on the circuit by Berlin's underground DubTechno ambassadors ODrex Music on their ODrex Trip-offspring. Released as a well massive 3x CD-r album cardboard box set with a runtime easily exceeding the three hours mark and catering an overall menu of 31 tracks contributed by 31 artists this one is a lot to take in, opening with the deep Electronica / ChillOut cut "Atmosphera" by John Ov3rblast and providing too much deepness to mention by the likes of the label head honchos Twin Peetz and Moolsaasa as well as tunes by Sascha Müller, Echonaut, Krisz Deak, Planetary Observer, Ethereal Music and many many more, all covering the musical range in between Ambient, Downtempo, Electronica, Intelligent Techno and DubTechno - the latter both on a calm tip as well as bringing on a distinct dancefloor punch - for those who well know about the amount of talent hidden in the deep layers of the worldwide musical underground.

Lars Graugaard / Grup Instrumental De Valencia / Joan Cervero - Engage And Share [Kairos Promo]

Released via the Kairos-imprint in September 2k18 is "Engage And Share", the newest collaborational effort created by Danish composer Lars Graugaard in conjunction with Joan Cervero and the Grup Instrumental De Valencia. Recorded over the course of three days in June 2k17 the three tracks making up this longplay piece are moving away from his Max/MSP composing technique but see his work being transferred into the world through real instruments, starting out with the albums title track which is a noir'esque, tense and intense piece of spine-tingling quality which we totally could see providing for an additional layer in a vintage, coarse-grained black-and-white film from the past. With "Slonk" things are getting way more action-laden and dramatic with loads of multilayered brass and short string outbursts alongside a detailed, buzzing background seemingly provided by piano, xylophone and / or glockenspiel whereas the concluding "Blind Lemon" brings forth a panoramic (neo)classical interplay between calm, enchanting relaxation and wild, dramatic sequences for all score-lovers and -collectors out there. If you are a part of this group "Engage And Share" will cater to your needs and provide a worthwhile addition to your collection for sure.

MMO-Ensemble - Any Day Now [Øra Fonogram]

Released on June 1st, 2k18 and incoming only recently via the Norwegian imprint Øra Fonogram is "Any Day Now", the new album by the MMO-Ensemble, founded and led by saxophonist Martin Myhre Olsen to express and manifest his vision of what the press release depicts as 'large improvising ensemble'. With a total ensemble size of twelve musicians we see the group starting on a quite intense level with the opener "Any Day Now Part I" which is meandering in between echoes of Psychedelic Rock, Spoken Word and hard boppin', Bossa-infused FreeJazz to pave the way for things to come like "Why?", a conversation between obvious mystique and mystery and innocent, yet dramatic broadway outing with brings forth highly score-bound qualities whereas "Take Me (Tøyen Blues)" provides a playful, well-grooving take on (Free)Jazz spread out over a stretch of 14 minutes as the albums longest piece before drifting off into deeper, more romantic and partly even BarJazz-infused territories for a while without getting rid of the overall improvisional approach and "Lonely Place?" explores eerie, intense territories of climaxing tension and Noir-quality in combination with a dramatic vocal performance. A few recommended picks to check out from a well-diverse and interesting album that's defo one to be called a highlight for all Contemporary Jazz enthusiasts out there for a reason.

Thomas Janitzky - Letters [self-released CD-r]

Coming in from the deepest, most hidden vaults of the German underground scene is "Letters", the latest untitled, self-released CD-r by Thomas Janitzky who's also involved in the - also deeply underground-rooted - 7" imprint operating under the name of Arbeiten Und Nicht Verzweifeln. Bringing on four sketches unearthed from the artists archives the single / EP opens with a tune named "Dobly" which brings us a dry, dancefloor friendly take on fine, fast paced electroid Rhythm Industrial with a trippy twist whereas the follow up identified as "Wood Effect" takes a turn into droning, atmospheric Noize whilst "Wash" provides more of a raw, harsh and highly repetetive variation on a hybrid fusion of Rhythm Electronics and brain destructive, arythmically layered MonoTechno before the final cut that is "Prism" explores the dynamic range of Ambient pads to the very max with an array of partly cut-up non-climaxing sweeps of a soft, yet stimulating note. There is hope.

Twin Peetz - Quartz [OD Cuts 003]

Put on the circuit via the recently launched ODrex Music-offspring OD Cuts which is focusing on extremely limited,  hand-number lathe cut editions is "Quartz", the newest 10inch outing  by Berlin's DubTechno master and label head honcho Twin Peetz. Released as an initial run of only 10 - sic! - copies worldwide we see the title track "Quartz" providing a chill, yet distinct punch for levitating DubTechno dancefloors whilst the "Reformulation" to be found on the flip gravitates towards a slower, more classic feel clearly paying homage to the genres great innovators vibewise, providing sweet fodder for spaced out late night sessions. A recommended collectors item, this.

Wako - Urolige Sinn [Øra Fonogram]

Coming in with a letter from the Faroe Islands only recently was "Urolige Sinn", the latest album release by the Norwegian quartet named Wako which most prominently features the likes of Kjetil Mulelid and Martin Myhre Olsen as part of their cast. Released on the Øra Fonogram label the longplay piece serves a menu of thirteen tracks within an overall playtime of 34 minutes only which keeps a lot of the projects compositions under the magical two minutes mark. But this relatively short per track runtime does not prevent the quartet from providing quite a bunch of magical moments on "Urolige Sinn", be it the deep, melancholia infused Jazz Noir-opener "Jernvilje" or the lively, yet contemplative, piano- and sax-driven late night dancefloor swing of the follow-up "Skavlet Føre" whilst "Den Endeløse Planen" weighs in a hint of chaos within 106 seconds of FreeJazz-related sound and both "Snart Bli Jeg Far" as well as "En Liten Halftime Senere" heavily gravitate towards BarJazz for fancy cocktail sipping in expensive upper class venues. But these are only a few selected picks from an excellent Jazz-oriented album that every genre lover should consider to add to his collection for a reason. Check!

01. Schlachthofbronx - Dun Dem / Soundbad [ZamZam Sounds 064]
Dub is a weapon and Schlachthofbronx are defo in for the kill with two tracks best described as spatial weapons of mass destruction. Stripped down and equipped with an earth-shaking low end as well as seductive melodic motifs these two tunes are timeless classics that every bass addict needs in his 7" collection.  

02. Global Electronic Network - Time Square [Sound Metaphors 005]
Re-release alert - and this is a big one. The first two parts of Global Electronic Network's 1994 Mille Plateaux-release "Time Square" which are featured on this 12" see electronic music legends Khan & Walker, the two faces behind G.E.N., bring on two epicly long efforts in Ambient Techno / Armchair Techno and spaced out Deep Listening Music for those who know. Defo a must have, this.

03. Quays - Swoo EP [Chewy Motto 001]
Slightly mysterious cat.no. 001 from thew Chewy Motto-label that somehow seems to be connected to the R & S Records family as their logo is featured on the label print as well. Produced in 2016 but obviously released only recently we see Quays filling the gap between Broken Beat / Phusion and Future Garage with four tunes including the big time anthem that is "By Your Side feat. Nancy Anderson" which is the most perfect, touching and beautiful closing tune in this genre you will ever come across ever whilst "Out Cold" on B2 brings on an anthemic, yet deep and heartfelt piano banger for advanced Future Garage sessions. Get.

04. Hot Like Jam / Very First Time [PXWHITE 001]
It's bootleg time! Both Beat International's "Dub Be Good To Me" as well as Madonna's "Like A Virgin" are getting an excellent, oldskool'ish Electro treatment and cater to the needs of all b-boys, breakers, pop lockers and mixmasters ready to surprise their crowds with new incarnations of well familiar alltime jams. Killer!

05. Sinistarr - Swinging Flavors #6 [Beat Machine Records]
More 7" magic is brought to us by this little yellow - ! - piece of goodness that is a kind of a novelty record of sorts, amalgamating both elements of Drum'n'Bass experimentalism and Juke / Footwork-references with uplifting vibes, highly pitched vocals, cheesy melodies and layers of Halftime in both "55555" as well as in "55555 *Philip D Kick Remix" for all open minded DJ's out there.

06. DJ Arg - Argonic Acid Trax [Super Rhythm Trax 023]
Acid from the deepest underground. Dark, hypnotic, jacking. Ever moving, yet full on hypnotic and defo a massive vinyl debut for DJ Arg who's been making waves on the scene with his productions on the Soundcloud-circuit for years on end. One cannot get a better Acid record than this one this month. Period.

Julia Reidy - Beholder [A Guide To Saints Promo]

Scheduled for release on September 7th, 2k18 via A Guide To Saints is "Beholder", the latest longplay offering created by Berlin-based Australian guitarist Julia Reidy who is matching her instrument against electronic textures within four tracks on this fourty minute album piece. Opening with "Imminently" she caters a busy, fast-paced approach towards treating her instrument whilst repetetive strings and atmospheres provide a backdrop for her slightly aggressive, folksy techniques before "Syros", a name reference to the starting point of the albums production which was the Greek island of the same name, goes deep into UnAmbient territories with a certain feel of unrest one feels despite Reidy's loop-oriented guitar playing. With "Jfal" we see Julia Reidy entering realms of 70s-oriented Psychedelic Rock in her approach to how to treat her guitar whilst crystalline Ambient tones are functioning as a sonic contrast before the track surprisingly changing pace and ends in a finale of spooky reverbs for the most captivating tune of the album whilst the title track finally goes back into Folk and intense strumming. We're in for "Jfal" mostly although we can see why ppl would pick up on the rest of the album as well.

The Green Kingdom - Seen And Unseen [Sound In Silence 052]

Coming in from Greece as a hand-numbered edition of 200 copies is "Seen And Unseen", the very first album produced by Michigan's Michael Cottone a.k.a. The Green Kingdom for the Greek Ambient staple Sound In Silence. After releasing on imprints like Dronarivm, Lost Tribe Sound, Flaming Pines and others under The Green Kingdom as well as using the name Dustcraft for more DubTechno related productions we see Mr. Cottone provide a selection of seven new cuts, opening with "Kodama" which is a slightly folksy blueprint for carefully crafted Ambient beauty followed by "Illuminations (Dub)", a seven minutes excursion into deep calmness and melancholia accompanied by solemn acoustic guitar sprinkles whereas the "Woolen Sky" provides a distinct melodic waveform movement and - once again - The Green Kingdom's trademark guitar textures. With "Cloud Wanderings" we see Michael Cottone perfectly emulating the slow movement of big cotton fluff over a bright blue summer sky, "Dorado" weighs in more soft melodic padding and a distinct hovering synth line for ultimate relaxation whereas the "Breathing Sea" can be described as a kind of respiratory, solemn and partly even Balearic-influenced take on the genre before the "Sleeping Forest" waves goodbye in a friendly, organic and all embracing manner, amalgamating a sweet array of pads and slightly kitsch-heavy strings with levitating as well as intense pianos and manipulated guitars for lovers. Music for a rainy sunday afternoon - possibly in late fall.

The Necks - Body [Fish Of Milk / ReR Megacorp]

Put on the circuit as a split effort between the labels Fish Of Milk and ReR Megacorp on August 14th, 2k18 is "Body", the latest full on body of work created by the instrumental trio that is The Necks. Catering the 20th full-length album in their career the band presents another epic, that means approx. 57 minutes, one track effort which starts out on a deep, emotional PostRock- / Ambient-tip sporting playful, intricate piano melodies, panoramic strings and a DarkJazz-oriented, slowly floating rhythm signature before drifting into organic Deep Listening territories, meandering in between tension and mystique carried by simple, yet magic piano chords and levitating electronics before spiralling acoustic guitar strumming introduces the compositions next sequence around minute 21 or so.  Over the further course of "Body" The Necks progress into powerful, still piano driven instrumental Rock / Jazz Rock, suddenly breaking down into beautiful, calm melancholia around minute 40, waving farewell on a wave of single piano notes and sunset atmospheres for the remaining 16 minutes. Lovely.

Omsk Information & Dr. Walker - Mescaline Muzzikkk [Nona Records 018]

Released via the Czech imprint Nona Records in mid-May 2k18 is the wonderful cassette tape album "Mescaline Muzzikkk" which sees Liquid Sky Berlin head honcho Dr. Walker teaming up with long time friend and collaborator Omsk Information for an epic, nearly 70 minutes spanning live session on the occasion of the 303 Day celebrations at Berlin's #lsb02.  Bringing forth the best of Ambient / ChillOut in its most experimental sense, exploring free floating polyrhythmic electronic structures and heavily altered, possibly field recorded vocal samples alongside subaquatic sonic drifts and ever varying liquid layers of sound that might be bordering genres like IDM / Intelligent Techno at some point despite being completely unique and existing in a enclosed universe of their own bringing forth atmospheric Drone and DeathAmbient structures, defying the restriction of regular space and time whilst only being comparable to other releases from the Liquid Sky-cosmos which has brought us labels like XXC3 or legendary projects like G.E.N. / Global Electronic Network in the past. If these are familiar names to you or if you still dig Scanner's classic 1994-released "Mass Observation" LP on Ash International this is defo a must have for you. Period.

Kammerflimmer Kollektief - There Are Actions Which We Have Neglected And Which Never Cease To Call Us [Bureau B Promo]

Set for release via Bureau B on September 21st, 2k18 via Bureau B is the new Kammerflimmer Kollektief-album with the epic, and presumably way too long, title "There Are Actions Which We Have Neglected And Which Never Cease To Call Us" which caters a bunch of seven brand new songs or 'actions' all coming with a title and a place associated with it. Opening with "Action 1: Lucid, Imperial Beach" we see Kammerflimmer Kollektief starting their journey on a droney, crackling and slightly distorted 10+ minutes UnAmbient tip leading into deep, fiddly yet deeply melancholia-infused PostPostRock effort whilst "Action 2: Discharged, Quauhnahuac" brings forth a sparse, slightly naturalistic feel alongside klaxon'esque background guitars and heaps of little, yet buzzing complex movements and detailed, scraping string abuse before unleashing more of an structured (not structured) chaotic vibe with loads of distortions whilst "Action 3: Thoughtless, Hamburg" brings on a deep, mostly unaltered take on calm, beautiful and dreamy PostRock for genre connaisseurs. Furthermore "Action 4: Wasted, Ivano-Frankivsk" presents more of a laid back, dubbed out twang for hot afternoons spent on the beach, "Action 5: Resplendent, Bolinas" starts out on heavy, cut-up Noize distortion before a sudden plot twist turns the tune towards more dubby PostRock lazyness, "Action 6: Vigilant, Jerichow" provides more deep, twangy experimentation and melancholia before the concluding "Action 7: Blessed, Ermenoville" dabbles with more of a multilayered, intertwined DesertRock feel for a sweet, bluesy closure. Interesting, yet not as fascinating as their previous album "Desarroi".

The A-side sees "Waiting For The Passing - For Solo Bass Drum" presenting a thundering, reverberating musical approach that seems to amalgamate deep Ambient droning with large scale wobbling metal sheets forming a coherent yet alienating sound universe of its own whereas "The Space Inside - For Solo Tam Tam" indulges in a stretched out , sterile Cold Ambient scape, slowly moving metallic drones and overall sci-fi feel, referring to a desolate, post-apocalyptic future yet to come.  Check.
