SPAZIOTEMPO’s sixth chapter marks the debut of the Swiss artist Matthew Dexter.

SPAZIOTEMPO’s sixth chapter marks the debut of the Swiss artist Matthew Dexter.

Matthew delivers a full excursus throughout contemporary beats, modern trance and underground anthems.

Opening the EP is Horizonte, an acid-trance cut with a twist of Goa. Any elements are wisely mixed up creating a perfect contemporary club track. The title track Centroterra is a mélange of dark and introspective atmosphere, with a meditative / tribalist vibes and broken beats supporting the tension.

The B side starts with Variant Intelligence, a 4/4 cut with a sci-fi mood and prog build up that takes You back on a clubby mood… Can you recall that?

The closing track Everything Matters brings has a robotic retro feeling with breaks and some melancholy acid vibes to fold it up perfectly. The evolution is long and delicate, the layers are intricated but distinct, making the listeners dive into a wide array of emotions.

We are thrilled to announce the first release in 25 years on Suzanne Ciani's Atmospheric label, which focuses on her live electronic music. Improvisation on Four Sequences was performed live in quadraphonic on the Buchla 200e and the Animoog at Festival Antigel in Geneva, Switzerland on January 25th, 2020. This record is specially encoded to be played back in quadraphonic sound and is also stereo compatible.
Where We Met is proud to welcome RAW M.T. for its ninth chapter.The record is an excursion on Giorgio’s introspective world, showing all spectrum of his sounds and shades.You Can Still Dance is an effective breakbeat cut with a mellowing bass structure, In Trance keeps the mood further on with another breaky trip into melodies and back!This Is Not a Mindtrip slows down the bpm a bit and perfectly gets the record into another psychedelic dimension.Electro Queen close the EP with a stellar IDM track, something Richard D. James can clearly blink to.WWM009 is an elegant but dirty, effective but complex release that expresses Giorgio’s dedication to details: any sound, synth layer and drum is wisely combined to play with contrasts and synergies.
Celebrating his 25th year as a producer and DJ, London's Silverlining announces his first ever double-vinyl artist project, 'Simulacra', a collection of emotive yet powerful body music fresh from his South London studio. Known for his diverse and bassline-driven grooves, this work sees him straddle between the stripped-back house and techno that we have come to adore on his acclaimed Silverlining Dubs series, with eclectic forays into territories of electronic musicality unexplored by him until now. Adopting a similar analogue workflow and kit-list to that used for his 1990s productions, the collection retains his trademark sonic brilliance, whilst demonstrating, once again, that his ideas are far from running out.Subtly interwoven into its mood and lyrics, the album explores themes of dependence on misrecognised digital identities, and the importance of real world tangibility. For the album's artwork, Silverlining has collaborated with celebrated print-making artist, Leonie Bradley, whose work explores similar themes.This versatile collection of new music from Silverlining caters both for tasteful record collectors, and deeper DJs alike, with its extensive yet consistent spectrum of flavours.
Across these 7 untitled tracks (as is the modus of all blundar releases) the producer known as Unfinished Portraits crafts a coherent album experience that is equal parts empty space and density. Working in a seemingly collage-like fashion, the opening track juxtaposes rhythmic elements that just barely fit together; declaring upon entrance that all expectations from here on out are futile. Tension builds through a sparse palette of sounds both tactile and atmospheric. Dry, isolated clicks of digital clean trickling through a humming industrial space. Segments are abstract on their own, but stitched together still form an elegant whole. Just when you think you’re getting lost into avant experimentation, something cuts in to surprising effect. It feels “live” in a way only improvised music can.And there is a conceptual sense of humor in letting the seams of the process lay bare. A string section builds only to be cut short upon completion. A field recording is audibly (i.e. intentionally) looped. The listener is made aware of the illusion and manipulations that ‘music’ creates in the same way Martin Margiela handled ‘fashion’ - with a postmodern kind of wit.Hailing from Cairo but residing in Argentina, Unfinished Portraits could easily exude upon a dual exoticism in nationalities and climates. This is however not on the agenda, as for where this artist truly resides, is in the hypertextual realm of late capitalism. Identity loss, internet culture, the aesthetic of sadness and the Warp Records catalogue all come into play.No matter what city, the urban landscape is always concrete and glass. And as the sleeve photo suggests - a picture of a former park turned to rubble in the process of housing developments - all cities are essentially unfinished.
Founded by Blue Hour and Philippa Pacho, ‘positivesource’ is a new record label conceived during the pandemic and absence of nightlife. The series will bring together various artists with a focus on progressive attitudes in dance music while paying homage to our roots in early club culture.
