Mad​-​Hop Vol​.​8 // Label: Mad-Hop Records // Released 28 May 2014 // Artwork: Letter D.

“Kicking off this summer with another international episode of the ‘Mad-Hop’ compilation series, the 8th in line is full of new tunes and supported by 3 gigs in Poland with artist such as Kixnare, Minoo, Zova and En2ak and our spacial guest Slugabed.

Expect crazy tunes on ‘Mad-Hop vol.8′ from Pixelord and Emufucka, some chill out from Daisuke Tanabe, Killing Skills, Lomovolokno, Julien Mier, Evil Needle, 1000names and a couple of fresh Mc’s: straight from Holland Joe Kickass and homies from Venezuela Burguez ft. Jizor.

In this edition, we joined forces with two other labels: GERGAZ (SVK) with GLGN and JIMMY Pé label; a small community of people with a need to present their music or other related work. The label’s main focus is to release a non-commercial work of unknown artists or projects.

We’re also working with Beat Broke (USA), an Austin, TX-based record label that works with a lot of European artists, supported by Leadesmen Dutch electronic duo who create dark, pulsating soundscapes layered with bubbling synths and pounding percussion (similar team as seen on Mad-Hop vol.5 ( Mad-Love )!)”

Moonfishing by David Michael Friend

A short puppet film by David Michael Friend; part of Heather Henson’s “Handmade Puppet Dreams” series.

A fisherman’s hobby of sculpting is interrupted when he must perform his monthly task of illuminating the town he lives in. With container on back, fishing pole in hand, and his current carving stashed in his pocket, the lonely soul goes searching for the perfect spot to catch the moon’s shimmering sister. But his shattered hope for exchanging his catch for the villager’s fellowship returns him to his art for companionship.

Chinti by Natalia Mirzoyan

The shore on which little ant lives is a narrow slip of ground all filled with trash embound by a wall from one side and a river from the other. Little ant tries to fit into the strict daily routine of the ant family, but finds it really hard for him.

The main character’s world changes greatly when he finds a small piece of paper – a ticket with the picture of Taj Mahal. Ant falls in love with the gorgeous architecture of this building. He understands that it exists somewhere, but it is very far away. So, having no idea of the actual size of the building, the ant decides to construct the same building on his own shore, and make it look exactly the same as the original.

The film is made of different types of tea leaves • Directed & animated by Natalia Mirzoyan.

ASC :: Isolatedmix 45 // May 2014

“[…] ASC’s ‘Time Heals All’, released on Silent Season, cemented the label as one of the best out there for the year, and firmly assured ASC as a class act – not only under his more familiar drum’n bass guise, but with these new ventures into deep, atmospheric ambient soundscapes.

2014 sees James Clements revisit this approach. ‘Truth Be Told’ has already sold-out in physical formats, with a digital release set for June 1st [available here] – something most ambient artists can only dream of in today’s industry. But, if you’ve laid ears on this release already, or indeed any of his previous on Silent Season, this success won’t come as a surprise.

‘Truth Be Told’ is James’ third full-ambient release and his third on Canadian based label Silent Season. An extension of his previous sound, it’s another dream-like album packed full of textures, sound design and vivid journeys. An extension of ‘Time Heals All’ (2013), the album is tailored for the ethereal escapist, diving deep, and shimmering beautifully across nine tracks.”
