100records – very first EP 1994

rash

A month ago, Transitwelt from the Berlin imprint 100records released on his sound cloud 100records’ first EP which was originally released back in 94′.

We found this EP quite astonishing. The first part presents an interesting transcendental approach, which progressively enhances its evocative impact on our listening experience. Whereas, the second part is a pure delight, we liked how the alternated unconventional rhythm exhales a ponderous dimension..

MCMXC(1990) – Test 2/1428 SPRNGWD-OH

rhmn

 

MCMX (1990) aka The Lost Real  producer based in Milano, has been released lately a serie of acid/tech tracks.

Our favorite is “Test2″. We liked how the track is well balanced; how the smoothness of the vocal is well juxtaposed to the bumping rhythm. The whole creates a nice composition..

On the other hand, “1428 SPRNGWD-OH” is more brutal and straightforward.  We actually liked  the consistency of  the  raw material..

Ora Clementi – Cover You Will Softer Me

ja

 

Few months ago, Penultimate Press released this excerpt from Ora Clementi’s new LP “Cover You Will Softer Me”.

We liked the meditative approach of this track. It’s interesting to see how the “voice” as a sonic medium can be quite powerful, it induces the creation of new sonic spaces where time is vanished.. Certainly, the beauty of this track resides in its simplicity..

Bob Ostertag – Shadow Pocket

jan

Bob Ostertag, experimental sound artist based in San Francisco, released  few  years ago  this little gem “Shadow Pocket”.

This track definitely embodies the complex beauty that modular synthesizers (buchla) can produce.

We liked how the  panned sounds allow the listener to experience total immersion. It’s also interesting to see how the micro-bubling rhythm amplifies the speed of  our listening experience. Undeniably, this track opened in us a tenacious envy to  acquire and experiment with the beast..

Gábor Lázár – EP16

hjs

Gábor Lázár , sound artist from Budapest, released few days ago his new EP 16 via The Death Of Rave.
We found the minimalist approach of this EP quite fascinating.  We liked how  brilliantly he tackled down the process of reduction synthesis. The auditory experience slowly loses its ‘otherness’ attribute  and  harmonically metamorphoses itself into an introspective journey.  We also liked how each tracks has its own color and deliberately showcases the diversity and richness of this peculiar process..

kuv

 

James Stinson and Gerald Donald aka Drexciya, Detroit duo, released back in 1994 this gem “Aquabahn” from their album “The Unknown Aquazone” on the label Submerge.

We are posting this gem  just for the sake of the swirling synth lines..

(Its futuristic approach is quite fascinating.)
