Ten And Tracer :: baker's blood

I am pleased to close this blog with a release, which combined so much shared values and thoughts about what can possibly be an open-minded work, so far from stale genres and dogmas, full of creative curiosity for sounds and things around. Without complex, but with the faculty to influence notably the course on, Jonathan Canupp cultivates all these talents and some, less obvious, to discover right now.

Metafame :: sooner ep

As a dissident of Anti Trance Corsortium 666, in 2002, and more recently (2004) author of a splendid track for a compilation of the netlabel plataforma-ltw, the very discreet Metafame makes us the honor and favours of a three tracks ep, a great piece of work. Opening on a so elegant and fine writing "confoundhalf-pint", the ep offers a vertiginous takeoff with "ec-nomy" which admittedly have, removed an "o", but certainly not sparing of sensations. Third and unfortunately last, "quaverrack" invits the listener to remain on a "parenthèse enchantée".
Yes, ::sooner is, and will remain a magic bracket.

Miteigi Nemoto :: Entheogen

4th lp contribution of Miteigi Nemoto for the label, and once again, Otium did not contradict its high reputation,
even if the title of the exercice can miss interest, see being reducing, in particular for the agnostics.

Marcos Romero :: definition of micro tech house

The original title was trully splendid, "viaje por el deep tech micro house", this sort of combined expression between theory and passeport for an open space journey of sound investigation. Then, from now, you will probably think that the actual name will not produce the same good attention to this project, reassure yourself and let you go to enter in this particularly hypnotic experience. Practising an exceptional rhythmic intelligence, Marcos Romero is a wizard ; a wizard able to hold a fluid tonality in levitation for, example, and our greater satisfaction. Yes, enter in, this “definition” and you will leave there only while knowing that you had just made a “viaje” in a very exclusive ritual.

Max Marlow :: skyland

First is this good surprise and nice gift … when you will have click on the link under these words,
these are the steps of an urban nomad and night bird walk of a solitary berliner, king for a day and undoubtedly one of the important live theoretician workers of the becoming netscene.
we are not yet at the end of enchantments.
Once passed, some perfectible manipulations, stays the echoes of the broken mirror ( "…sometimes he saw his real face, and sometimes a stranger at his place…" said the robots in the past) - But, already these reflections give up the place, or rather deviate with prudence in front of the road roller and the unrestrained race of the hustler, reduced to a furtive shadow.
"the pirate rebellion of skyland" does not slacken the pressure, quite the contrary, poking and ceaselessly on the wire of a circular groove, rolled-iron by an inalterable bass line.
And finally, what about "walaskjalf" ?
Well, are you talking of this gigantic track, which will make us remember for a very long time this :: skyland ?
i suppose, yes …

Christophe Demarthe :: the questionnaire

:: the questionnaire is based on the original "questionnaire of Marcel Proust", created by Antoinette Faure around 1890.

Krishve :: cochlea

Krishve will not remain wedged in the inner ear for a long time...
"scala media", as a recording field temptation, shares a sound exploration all made of obvious pushed tubular electric density.
"scala tympani" could put at evil the membrane, but materialisation of the sparks is still quite remote - hardly if the very orchestral final one is distinguished.
"scala vestibuli" closes the ep in an entrance made of post-symphonic layers lost between two worlds. the accents are often dramatic, the tension is particularly perceptible - We will not wait for long before joining a distant sarabande, brass band in phase of total obliteration.
Krishve will not remain wedged in the inner ear for a long time...

Various Artists :: pathmusick visits kreislauf

10 is the reference of this meeting of Kreislauf (our host) with Pathmusick, a very welcome visitor.
09 are the identity guests of the master of ceremony, Alex Cortex.
08 is surely a "night-time epitome" but it also could be a time passes, media noche.
07 as a laconic echo number of a distant voice, Stefan Eichinger (lopazz) have a melancholic thought for that whom we suppose Elisabetha being, and always this laconic voice haunting dehumanized corridors, loneliness?
06 as an inverted circular water movement for Seis Tormentas.
05 or was it 2 bad cop mostly disorientated.
04 is a short intermede, where the satyre is charming an innocent victim … a story to follow.
03 as a decentralized nerve movement.
02 ? please more than 2, of these so flexible harmonic tunes.
Number one is surely another track, but i'm not a number, i am a freeeee man …
