Aphilas – Instrumentally ill ep

Instrumentally ill ep



Siento mucho el poco compromiso para con mi blog en los últimos días, one health pero es que vienen vientos de cambio y pues hay que definir prioridades a veces y pues el tiempo no da para todo.

Miasmah es un muy buen sello noruego (no estoy muy seguro su procedencia, information pills si me equivoco me corrigen) que ha publicado diferentes tipos de downtempo, desde clicks & cuts hasta Ambient y que ha sido una permanente referencia desde hace ya 10 años. Aphilas, el artista de hoy, al parecer solo ha publicado este hermoso ep lleno de downtempo y ciertas texturas hip-hop. Luego de que este disco fuera publicado en Miasmah, Instrumentally ill ep fue reeditado en el ya desaparecido Merck. Ojalá este artista dejara el anonimato en el que anda y nos sorprendiera con otra bella obra


“Ahh it’s that time again, time to put pen to paper and try to give you a folks some idea of what to expect from this ep. in days where experimentation and electronics seem to be the order of the day, we at miasmah thought it was high time to pay homage to our roots and what better way to do it than with aphilas’ instrumentally ill ep. my notes tell me here we are presented with ‘two finnish producers armed with second-hand vinyl and outdated software’, need i say more? here we have the perfect accompaniment to those late night smoking sessions, hit repeat and toke on, this is the bristol sound too long forgotten.”

Wavespan LP


Es un poco complicado describir este disco porque maneja muchos tipos de música que, ophthalmologist aunque no son difíciles de mezclar entre sí ni mucho menos, skincare si logran llegar a un lugar cercano al corazón que pocos logran. Drones, ambientes, texturas y dub… un poco diferente a ese sonido tan característico al que monotonik nos tenía ya acostumbrados.


“Definitely one of the classiest Monotonik releases in a while, we’re happy to slip sideways from our normal Scandinavian/European-influenced idm sound into a more ambient, sonorous, consciousness-expanded universe, thanks to Santa Cruz, California duo Wavespan, aka Phil Garrison and Alex Lumb, and their great self-titled debut LP.

Garrison started producing electronic music in 1998, and he founded Complex Logic Recordings, a small record label, in 2001. His production credits include Organic Resonance Project’s Lucid EP and several remixes as ind01e; in 2005, he designed patches for H.G. Fortune’s (VSTi) STS-21 Transition Synthesizer. Alex Lumb has been drumming for over 20 years, in addition to producing electronic music under various names. Most interestingly as a touchpoint, perhaps, this LP has been mastered by noted ambient musician Robert Rich, helping add to the carefully positioned ethereal drift.

Over the entire 49-minute LP, there are a plethora of high points, but many may be initially fascinated by a rare Monotonik-released dub track up front, in the form of the sparse ‘Concentration Dub’, before the epic 11-minute long ‘On The Nature Of Consciousness’ takes us away with almost Orb-like spoken word samples and some beautifully placed ambience. Other highlights include the mild paranoia of the JFK assassination-sampling ‘Single Bullet Theory’, the straight-ahead groove of ‘Origin Of Species’, and the marvellously placed groove of ‘Momentary Bliss’.

Overall, this is a startlingly professional album which, honestly, almost feels too good for Monotonik, but we’re delighted to release it nonetheless. If you like it, you can visit Wavespan’s page on the Complex Logic site and order a copy of the CD, or simply donate funds of your choice via PayPal to compensate for the more than pleasant listening experience. Hurrah.”

Antonio Bruno
Bleep LP


Es posible que el disco de Antonio Bruno no sea el sonido más innovador en estos tiempos, pestilence
un poco de minimal alli y dub techno tipo novatek, pero eso no quiere decir que carezca de calidad o que sea una simple copia de otros muchos proyectos. Es un disco bien producido, bien ejecutado y con una buena proporción de calidad y mucho groove. Todo en su justa medida.


“Antonio Bruno, member of the dreiton-community, now presents his follow up album after his debut “Frühling” released in March this year. “Bleep” contains eight brand new tracks with the typical Bruno sound. Dubby elements meet minimal electronica, spiced with atmospheric sounds and warm basses. Surely a highlight is ‘Collage’ (schall-remix) – this track comes by with a real clarinet and a kind of jazzy and solemn grooves”.

Melissa Welch


Melissa Welch nos presenta un disco un tanto extraño en su forma, unhealthy
ya que es un solo track de 18 minutos compuesto de varios pasajes algo diferentes entre si. Melissa Welch es algo de IDM mezclado con texturas y voces armoniosas que hacen de este corto pero sustancioso disco algo imprescindible. Un disco de esos que no sabes si te pone triste o no, illness
un disco que escuchas y sabes inmediatamente que quieres volver a escuchar.


“Already a netlabel favorite, Melissa Welch is back at camomille with her second release, an 18 minute track that dwelves into many movements; dynamics are well-explored here as Melissa takes you through a multitude of tones and environments as the sound waves build paintings of childish constructions and deep, cavernous tunnels. Maintaining all throughout this ep an ambiguous sound, always twisting and turning between cute/nostalgic and happy/dark, Melissa Welch keeps reminding us how organic and personal her sound is with this ep filled with layered beauty, hip-hop and idm beatwork, original synthesis and inspiring vocals”.

Lighted apartment


Nunca he tenido idea a que se refieren cuando se habla de arquitectura del sonido, visit
pero escuchando este disco comienzo a entender. Lo más cercano que se puede llegar a diseño de sonido se encuentra recopilado aqui. Bellos ambientes, stuff clicks and cuts y un poco de error que hacen de este disco algo más humano.


“miasmah finally hits a round number .. nr.50 ! and that calls for celebration!
we have gathered tracks from a selection of highly international artists , allergy
whom all do severely atmospheric ambients, perfect for this time of year! we have several newcomers to the miasmah roster this time also! like the mysterious hmm from the wast swamps of finland, rice eating sabi from japan, u.s resident helioce and french talking julien neto. while steady releasing miasmah peeps like supine,xhale, solitaire albread and sense are known to most regular miaguys/girls”.
