Quién, discount rx despues de haber escuchado appelsap no quedó prendado del sonido de MD. Aquel que piense lo contrario que tire la primera piedra. IDM del mejor por parte del finés Jaakko Manninen, sin compromisos de ningún tipo. Creador de los servidores scene.org, por lo cual debería ganarse un lugar en el hall de la fama del mundo de los sellos en línea, MD entrega un cortísimo disco para monotonik, pero que muestra claramente el sonido que sus fans tanto disfrutamos.

*****

“His last release on Monotonik was wayback when we were putting out .MODs, so it’s a delight to finally put out another tune from Helsinki native, Jaakko Manninen, aka md, and as our 50th Monotonik release, too.

Now residing in London, his “Appelsap” mp3-release was put out on CD by Merck Records recently, including some great remixes from Thug, Ilkae, Crankshaft (Yolk!), and even Warp-signed Brothomstates, and his “Between Gaps” opus, formerly due out as the first release on the scrapped Monotonik ‘real-life’ record label, is now due in the near future from Merck (and is well worth the wait!)

In any case, “Sweaty Palms” is a great example of the new and way-ahead md style, dense as feck and full of foreboding bassrumble and cut-to-heck drums and Finnish voices. It grooves, but in an unholy way, and we like this, like it a lot.”

Considerado por muchos el mejor disco online del 2005, viagra 40mg sonmi451 reedita algunos de los tracks de un CD publicado en u-cover llamado “Vladivostok” bajo el nombre de “the quiet EP”.

Como su nombre lo indica, se trata de música tranquila, envuelta en una especie de poesía auditiva llena de acordes menores, dub, ambient y voces manipuladas. Música instrumental que emociona y hace soñar. Una música como muchas otras, que a fuerza te muestra que tienes sentimientos y que vale la pena vivir si de escuchar este tipo de discos se trata.

“It’s a delight to welcome Belgian artist Bernard Zwijzen, aka Sonmi451, a veteran of release of real-life labels such as U-Cover, to Monotonik with his rather divine 4-track release, ‘The Quiet EP’, which artfully blends ambience and melody in some delightfully beguiling ways.

The EP, which includes both tracks from Sonmi451’s super-limited edition U-Cover CDR ‘Vladivostok’, as well as new material, starts out with the title track from that CDR, which is ambient drift incarnate, before moving on to ‘Inner Structure’, which uses loops and an almost triphop aesthetic, with gently trilling voices and tinkling rustles spreading slowly all over the dial.

Things finish out with ‘Quiet Piece For Bram’, which swells and swells to awesome heights of rotating ambience, before ‘Dilating’ delves all the way into clickhouse, with some gorgeous percussion and chord rumbles – a fitting end to an excellent EP.”

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.”
