|➲ Niteffect :: Dark Glow // Export Label // Released 08 Feb. 2014 // Art: Hania Banaszczyk.|
“The first 2014 release at Export Label is ‘Dark Glow’, an album recorded by the Hungarian artist Niteffect. Budapest based Miklos Labady (Niteffect) has been a part of the underground scene since 2000; after numerous EPs, cooperations and guest appearances on compilations, he finally recorded a long play.
‘Dark Glow’ comprises nearly an hour of music, divided into twenty parts, characterised by the restlessness of trip-hop and abstract hip-hop. Niteffect’s recent material shows great maturity and consistence, every track on Dark Glow compliments the next, making the album a logical and coherent whole.”
|➲ Koloto “Mechanica EP” // Self-released // Released 24 Feb. 2014 // Art: Cathy McMurray.|
“Heralding from pastoral Canterbury, Kent, Koloto is the pseudonym of Maria Sullivan, electronic music producer and bassist in up and coming math rock outfit Delta Sleep (Big Scary Monsters Records).
Koloto’s sound infuses elements of electronica, post rock, hip hop and Musique concrète, and draws influences from artists such as edIT, Four Tet, Baths and Amon Tobin, to name but a few.”
|➲ Man of The Downtrodden “30Beats30Days Vol.3” // Self-released // Released 17 Feb. 2014.|
“This is a yearly journey for me. I relegate myself to make 30 beats in 30 days once a year around Dec-Feb. This is my 3 iteration of this project, which I release for free/PWYW. This album was made alongside 60-70 hour work weeks, and most songs were made within 30 minutes to 2 hours. With some exceptions when I had time during the weekend. This entire album was made using a Gemini XL-500, a Maschine Studio, and an iMac running Maschine 2.0.”
