Polaroid Notes :: Sea Shores

Polaroid NotesSea Shores” ★ Label: Tessellate Recordings ★ Released 19 May 2015 ★

Polaroid Notes is an artist born and raised in Munich, Germany and currently residing in the countryside near the Alps.

Sea Shores‘ tries to capture the grandeur of the sea, its beauty and the deep unexplored secrets beyond. It reflects the transience of nature and its constant change. Whether it be towering mountains, expansive hot desert or the deep blue sea, the artist is influenced by the majestic width and overwhelming power of nature.

Sea Shores‘ is cinematic in sound, as Polaroid Notes are spun from simple yet effected piano keys with wave upon wave of stark, arresting drones.

Applescal :: For

ApplescalFor” ★ Label: Atomnation ★ Released 18 May 2015 ★

Techno / electronica producer Pascal Terstappen presents his fourth longplayer as Applescal, entitled ‘For’. The 10-tracker released via Atomnation.

On ‘For’, the new album, the Haarlem-born, Amsterdam-based producer takes things to the next level across a collage of vivid audible explorations that are without doubt, among his best work to date. ‘For’s’ content still conveys the organic and buoyant sound that we’ve become accustom to hearing when listening to Applescal’s earlier transmissions, but this time round, things seem to be delving into deeper and darker sonic terrains, resulting in what can only be described as a downright overwhelming listening experience.

Ursprünglich im Oktober letzten Jahres auf dem Label Sui Generiz veröffentlicht, ist die “Melancoil EP” nun auf dem Bandcamp-Account von Robot Love gelandet.

Robot Love is Steve Nishimura, a special guy born in the city of Honolulu, Hawaii and now living and learning in Boston. His music approach is very peculiar and powerful.

This artist manage to create perfect harmony above this contrasting ideas and it is both a pleasure to the listening soul aswell as funky to the dancefloor.”


LostodysseyTHISDREAMSUCKS” ★ Label: Morning Beast ★ Released 11 March 2015 ★

Auch der zweite Release von James Williams auf dem wunderbaren Morning Beast Label steht seinem Debüt aus dem letzten Jahr in nichts nach. Eine Wohltat für die Ohren, schönes Release //

A culmination of b-sides, and unreleased tracks produced last year during the making of the first EP Early Rise.

“Hailing from from the island of Oahu and residing in Eugene, Oregon, James Williams produces a select brand of dreamy bedroom beats. Heavy on self-sampling, this multi-instrumentalist comes from a diverse background of both musical training and sound experimentation. His beats might not be played in the clubs, but they fill every void inside the lonely and create a soundscape for retrospective thoughts, goosebumps, and love-making.”

El Fog :: Reverberate Slowly

El FogReverberate Slowly” ★ Label: Flau Records ★ Released 22 February 2015 ★

“”Reverberate Slowly” is a smoky collection of gorgeous late-night dub miniatures from mysterious Berlin-based producer El Fog.

Unlike so many albums in the genre it has a fragile personality and many layers to uncover on each subsequent listen.

Reverberate Slowly” is a totally seductive listening experience and like a candlelit supper with that special someone, it won’t fail to draw you into its moonlit night-time mood.

Album originally released our favorite label moteer, 2007. This Edition is re-mastering version with 2 rare track and bonus remix from Jan Jelinek.”

Christopher Hipgrave :: No Greater Hero Than The Least…

C. Hipgrave :: No Greater Hero Than The Least…Home Normal ★ Rel. 27 Feb 2015 ★

Christopher Hipgrave is one of the great enigmas of the modern ambient-electronic scene in the UK. In 2009 he released his debut ‘Day’ to critical acclaim, but in the five years since then only quietly released his fantastic ‘Slow, With Pages Of Fluttering Interference’ on Low Point, as well as creating the excellent standalone ‘Ambient’ software which had Sound On Sound of all people getting all giddy.”

Duckem :: Matter EP

DuckemMatter EP” ★ Label: Cut Records ★ Released 01 March 2015 ★

“Dusty chords, tight percussion and beautifully deep sounds, this four-track is guaranteed to satiate purveyors of fine dub-techno and bass music.

Bucking the trend of your usual 4-4 style dub-techno, Duckem takes us a bit deeper and further into the sound. Pushing percussive boundaries, and working layers upon layers.”
