Obba SupaTo.​Am / Free​.​Am” // Project: Mooncircle // Rel. 28 May 2013 // Art: Gordon Gieseking.

The diabolical rhyme dynamics of Teknical Developments lyrics paired with beats cloaked in a blue cheese fog of THTC from Hey!zeus dwell and celebrate in the time of A.M. A time which reveals the full existence of the human cypher in its entirety, From the crooked corrupt cloaked by its shadows to the optimism of dreams and a new days break.

TO.AM is a dedication to the time // FREE.AM is an experiment in the freedoms of the infant hours

Two separate organism from the same body of concept naturally evolved from late night studio sessions all past the hour of midnight.

Access To Arasaka :: Écrasez L’Infâme

Access To ArasakaÉcrasez L’Infâme” // CRL Studios • Released 15 May 2013 // Art: Robert Lioy.

Taking his name from the “Cyberpunk 2020″ off-shoot card game “Netrunner”, the once elusive Access To Arasaka has seemly come out of nowhere to take the electronic music community by storm.

A futuristic journey of a cerebral nature, demonstrating a virtual equinox of surgical beatwork and densely-layered atmospheres, Access To Arasaka transcended complexity and innovation in electronic music to arrived at the very edge of its own inner space.

The Rochester, NY producer’s cyberpunk influences are evident as he skillfully paints each sonic soundscape with expert precision and meticulous attention to detail. The artist describes his music as “a mixture of every influence I’ve ever had, past and present. As the general idea of this project is a way to describe the future I anticipate, the sounds and styles themselves are an homage to every song that has already taken me there.”

Project: Mooncircle Compilation :: Σclipse

Project: MooncircleΣclipse” // Released 26 April 2013 • “Σclipse” is a free download.

“Every six lunar months – when Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned – we experience a partial or total lunar eclipse that can be observed anywhere on the night side of Earth. Lunar eclipses can only occur at full moon, that time when the moon is directly opposite Earth in relation to the Sun. Many ancient civilizations cultivated a multitude of myths surrounding these astronomic events, most of them depicting wild animals or mystical creatures eating the moon or crossing it’s path. Tibetan Buddhists say that during a lunar eclipse, our actions, whether good or bad, are multiplied one thousandfold, whereas, in ancient egypt, a lunar eclipse was considered to be the precursor of natural disasters, catastrophes, wars, and diseases and the biggest possible harm would be cast upon the earth if Isfet, the manifestation of the total eclipse and god of injustice and violence, would make the sky fall onto Earth and therefore bring chaos upon it.

As the soundtrack for the lunar eclipse during the night of the 25th of April, we selected some exclusive and unreleased songs from Robot Koch, Submerse, Rain Dog, Sieren, Daisuke Tanabe, Lomovolokno, KRTS, and Daixie on this mini-compilation.”

ZENИTH :: Ritual

ZENИTH is a Toulouse-based duo composed of Tony Llados & Guillaume Sauvage formed at the end of 2012.

Cosmic Compositions Avant Garde Series Vol​​.​​2

Cosmic Compositions Avant Garde Series Vol​​.​​2 // Released 10 April 2013 • Artwork by Nate James.

We feel there are huge similarity’s between the Avant-Garde/Free Jazz movement of the 50’s & 60’s & the beat movement of Today. As both movements attempted to break down, extend & alter the conventions of their original genres (Jazz & Hip Hop) & were never afraid to experiment & improvise to create something that wasn’t accepted commercially at the time.

This compilation is a dedication to American jazz pianist, organist, harpist and composer Alice Coltrane. Compilation Compiled by Addison Chase.
