Mbwana and his best friend Juma are two young men with big dreams. These dreams become reality when they photograph a gigantic fish leaping out of the sea and their small town blossoms into a tourist hot-spot as a result. But for Mbwana, the reality isn’t what he dreamed – and when he meets the fish again, both of them forgotten, ruined and old, he decides only one of them can survive. Jonah is a big fish story about the old and the new, and the links and the distances between them. A visual feast, shot though with humour and warmth, it tells an old story in a completely new way.

“Initially conceived as an outlet for a collective of like-minded artists from the rural outskirts of Manchester, Δkkord have already achieved more than the sum of their parts. Having self-released two long sold out records and with their ‘Surge’ track gracing the first ever 12” from the label arm of the incredibly well respected Electronic Explorations; they’ve achieved something of a cult following completely on the merits of their output. Bringing together their collected musical experience, Δkkord channel a sound that’s a hybrid of the electronic musics its members were raised on and their four track debut EP for Houndstooth is a further distillation of their passions for sonic minimalism and sound design.” /// ☇ Purchase @ Houndstooth // @ Boomkat.

“Not much is known about the duo, other than that their homebase is in Finland. Sometimes they group is credited as just Juuso Malin, and sometimes it includes Bianca. Either way, they’ve released a few EPs of jittery electro house, and mixed a podcast for Convex Industries. This will be their first proper release for that imprint, and the label’s third full-length release after turns from Jon Convex and Wraetlic. The record sees them smooth out their sound a bit and try on different tempos—BPMs range from 100 all the way up to 130. It’s a stark and minimalist affair, with prominent and sexually-charged spoken word vocals.” /// ☇ Purchase @ Surus // @ Boomkat.

Miktek “[ Elsewhere ]” // Ultimae Records // Released 30 May 2013 // Artwork: Vincent Villuis.
After multiple releases on various labels including the much acclaimed Abstrakt Reflections, here comes [ Elsewhere ], Miktek’s first full length album on Ultimae.
Mihalis Aikaterinis, Greek artist, has a natural ability to compose music as ethereal as deeply grounded. With roots in the gothic and cold wave realms and a genuine passion for the electronic scene, he weaves with verve and subtlety finely crafted rhythms and soft melodies. The wide soundscapes, floating atmospheres and resonant themes reveal profound emotions akin to melancholia and hope.
※ Tracklist »
[ Elsewhere ] is a cinematic downtempo, IDM and ambient album presenting 12 tracks including a remixed version of Ominous Ride featured on the [ Ambrosia ] compilation.
