«Yet another Spanish talent. And talent is the keyword here.
Plumb & Plumber, disease also known as Jesús Valle Pazos, buy cialis comes from Vigo, Galicia, the northwestern spanish province. Cold and wet in the Winter, Sunny and warm in the Summer.
‘Organic Feedback’ revolves around ambient and cinematic electronica, where tape and field recordings are a warm layer of analog tapestries and dissonant electric guitars explode in a fuzzy and mechanical chaos. These ambient textures share the space with fingerpicked acoustic guitar chords and spaced-out sluggish drones, inviting us to an irresistible journey Through Plumb & Plumber’s delicate universe.
You’ll hear broken banjos, untuned guitars, steam engine noises, a pope doing some sort of a speech, ground recordings, an old woman singing a lament, 8 bit sounds, shoegazing drones, ambient space music, birds chirping, radio traffic and hiss, tons and tons of hiss. This is almost pure Library Music.
What Plumb & Plumber builds on ‘Organic Feedback’, with great knowledge of sound editing techniques and a rare and subtle – and genuine – aesthetic appeal, is a magnificent experimental EP, both fragile and strong, clear and dense, light and dark. Yin & Yang. Both parts of the same. Plumb & Plumber.
I can’t find the perfect words to describe this. Pure, almost brute melancholic beauty. Get this now.

Rob steady – Ask no lies

Rob Steady robbin’ steady. It’s Stéphane Obadia, help solo cutup-virtuoso, capsule keeper of countless aliases and Stockholm’s hottest underground export.
Born in France, discount he studies art but soon realizes exposing and presenting himself the regular way can’t be the right thing for him to elevate. So he starts throwing his ideas in everyday life without documenting- an attempt to release poetry from the museums of art of boredom, as Stèphane says.
A few years later, after photo, film and discreet events, he begins collecting small prosaic phrases soon to become the funny and clever songtitles you know him for: music has become the next thing for Stéph to devour and digest. And like everything he spits out again, it turns to be magnificent! He creates fragments that makes you think of Hip-Hop, mainstream R&B, Funk or ‘Folktronica’. Popculture broken into smithereens, postmodern sketches for your bedroom and discotheque: between breaking ya neck and feeling alienated from the whole world (Georg Cracked).

When you go through the reviews Stèphane received for his Obadia-release with Autres Directions, you’ll find critics being confused about how to judge his music. Is it danceable, does it move my butt? Might Stèph even be innit for Pop-Music as you can always find a moment of melody to stick to? Or are there more academical reasons, something about recycling, glitch-asthetics and stuff? Thing is, as we here at 12rèc believe, Stèphane prefers fooling around with genres. If you listen to the hot new Rob Steady EP, you’ll find him getting more abstract and experimental.

http://www.minlove.net

For their second release Minlove invited, this site london based imprint Sued Electronic, to submit new material that would best reflect the label’s vision and output. The result is a compilation that offers a very diverse, stuff and highly individual exploration of minimal electronic music – ranging from highly rhythmical, african influenced textures, to the more dubbier end of the spectrum, icy reduced yet quirky melodies and spacious cinematic meanderings.

“Wormhole”, by label head Alan Abrahams offers harmonious juxtapositions between state-of-the-art production methods, techno structures, world-music rhythms, and tribal chants / spoken words. Samples cut in and out at one instance and reappear in others, percussion is added at will, and textural elements are pasted into intricate collages to outstanding effects.

Lump’s highly infectious “Cake and Discipline” is a grooving mass of granulated noises crackling away over the 4/4 with a funked up sub bass adding the swing and minimally grooving underneath. The track is built and dissected with perfect precision, with subtle synths dotted around the 4/4, and clever vocal edits. “Yellow Leaf” by Milos enters reduced icy territories, with bassline depths to dubby floats and intricate textures forging a stripped, delicious line, in ascetic minimalism.
The closing track ” Halfway North” by AM/PM further demonstrates, his ability to combine contemporary electronic music, with beautiful conceptual composition. The skeletal percussion, sounding like a rattle snake, acts as a perfect catalyst and background for deeply melodic and strangely sparse sequences, chords and strings.

http://www.autoplate.cc/

Konrad Bayer is based in Munich and has put out tracks on a few compilations, an album called Dreams Of Leaving on the Genesungswerk label and a pair of albums on his own CDr imprint, Digital Folklore. More intriguing yet is his work with author Mathias Hirth, with whom he recorded “an audiobook, Al Wahid,… about getting lost in North Africa”. Well, it’s a big place. He now has an eight-track collection, Shall We Go To The Park? on the Autoplate netlabel, with a new release apparently to follow soon. And I can’t wait to hear it, because Shall We Go…? is an absolutely fascinating lo-volume listen. It’s just a delight, the way that Bayer toys with loops – often field recordings – in creating textures that at times start out as being somewhat difficult to get to grips with, but subtly pan out into deft, melodic pieces constructed mainly around acoustic guitar phrases punctuated with electronic blips and hits: in effect, it’s indietronics but with a dose of collage-based abstraction. As an example of a style of music that is constructed using a real range of techniques and sound sources, this is superb stuff, and while I might be more of a stay-at-home-with-a-cup-of-tea-and-a-nice-piece-of-homemade-cake guy than Autoplate’s suggestion that this is “best enjoyed while picknicking underneath the trees in the park, relaxing on a quilt,” it still makes me hungry for more. So when is that new release coming out? Get to it, Autoplate.

1-bit wonder



http://www.1bit-wonder.com/

Mirsch is the producer behind Latex Distortion. When performing live, he’s joined by Zacke aka René Schinkel. Latex Distortion started in the year 1999 when Mirsch was still deejaying techno sounds as Spud Murphy. Their first productions promoted a rather harsh industrial sound brimming with killing sounds and wicked samples. Simultaneously, Latex Distortion tracks and live appearances have always peered somewhat beyond the dancefloor.

Straight rhythms are rather rare, expectations are not there to be met but to be played with. The Latex universe is mazy and full of clever built traps. Its sound cannot be limited to one style – predictions, which direction the LD project will take next is highly precarious. As the Latex-boys are influenced by all kinds of music ranging from The Beatles and Air to Aphex Twin and Zhark Recordings and even Punk Rock, their next output could be just about everything…
The first 1-bit wonder release is a mellow and electronic one. Smooth tricky beats versus beautiful soundscapes. Find out by downloading the “Dis is to late E.P.”!

Absolute Funk ep
SN018
Sinergy networks



http://www.sinergy-networks.com

El debut para Sinergy del francés Jean –Vince, de nombre artístico Sarah Goldfarb, nos ofrece 2 cortes originales y 4 remixes, en un EP de título totalmente definitorio que supone un gran ejemplo de las conexiones que se establecen entre estilos como el electro y el tecno con el que sin duda es uno de sus predecesores: el funk.

El tema original, “Absolute Funk” guarda su virtud en la sencillez de estructuras y en la profunda efectividad que ofrece. El funk es un estilo que siempre ha tenido muy buenos resultados en manos de artistas franceses, y Jean-Vince lo demuestra con un tema que es la pista perfecta para captar la esencia del maxi. Absolute Funk puede hacerte bailar con su clásica e intensa base rítmica y hacerte volar con sus ambientales synthes.
El segundo tema original del francés es retorcido, directo, bañado en percusión digital de aire cuasi-africana y en sonidos sintéticos que poseen a la vez una tendencia al electro mucho más patente, y que llevan a cabo una repetición rítmica casi tranceante.
La revisión de “Absolute Funk” a cargo de LOD, conserva el groove de la original pero le añade más tintes de tecno minimal sugerente, clicks y sonidos eléctricos incrustados en el ritmo, acogiendo así múltiples registros sonoros que se van sucediendo hasta llegar a conformar el matrimonio perfecto entre ritmo e interferencia.
La recreación de Abstract Groove es mucho más espesa, abstracta, con ciertos toques de destono y ruido abrupto. De nuevo ofrece una construcción asombrosa, ácida, oscura y con graves desbordantes al límite de la saturación, en la que el funk se va retorciendo y adquiriendo nuevas formas.
En el remix que hace Funzion de nuevo los synthes con aires espaciales tienen su buena porción de protagonismo además de incorporar una voz tratada que le aporta cierto aire de sensualidad. Todo esto en un marco rítmico contundente, que entra de lleno en los terrenos del mejor electro, aquel que atrapa y puede llegar a hipnotizar a base de repetición e intensidad.
El alemán Marko Fuerstenberg muestra la cara más dura del corte revisado, dando cuerpo al tema con un enfoque más cercano al sonido de Detroit, siempre evocador del misterio y utilizando para transmitirlo synthes afilados desde la clave del mejor tecno minimalista.
En su conjunto, estamos ante una montaña rusa de sonidos y espirales rítmicas en la que el funk domina pero cede su impronta al servicio de otras experiencias estilísticas.
La herencia de este género sigue muy viva, al menos desde la visión de creadores del siglo 21.
Buenísima muestra.

Takeshi Nakamura is back on zymogen for another brilliant work taking his sound to another level of complexity. This 6 tracks ep has been produced after Ordinary Days following similar processes of composition, patient
always keeping a quality level near to the maximum and creating sonorities similar to his previous record without any loss of intensity.
Takeshi accustoms us to pure geometric structures stained with digital rough sketches, sweet discords and harmonious glitches, but with these compositions he overcomes his strandards.
Wonderful…can you find a better word to start this promenade through artificial landscapes?
“I Sink” moves from frenetic beats with hissing basses in constant evolution and slow pads expanding under robotic voices, a lesson of composition. The following “Cloud” is an hypnotic sequence with cuts of a melody lost in reverbs wich becomes concrete into “Defeat”, a groovy declaration of digital pessimism, totally amazing! During “Particle” an incredible flow of silicic acid will reach you neurons, floating high frequencies over a rough snares wich keep up the fragile structure of the beat. The conclusion of the ep is “Sundial”, a long evolution of a simple idea based on soft loops slowly submerged by an enormous flux of ultra-low frequencies and drones for an intense growth wich finishes in the same way it started like an infinite mantra; personally one of the best song created by Nakamura so far.
With this work Takeshi shows once again his abilities to creating deep experimental music and we feel really lucky to have the possibility to release a work of this kind of quality…an “Easy Listening” near perfection.

Paraiso EP

D.A.T.A.

http://www.d-a-t-a.net

Garnica nos trae el primer lanzamiento de D.A.T.A. Este artista
Venezolano establecido en Barcelona, visit this site España, look nos da una elegante visión
de la urbe del trópico, plasmada en su particular sonido minimal.
Abriendo con “petare”, el extremo duro, convulsionado, rudo y lleno de
incertidumbre, jugando con los ritmos y las texturas para hacernos
sentir que caminamos con cautela por sus calles, o la contemplamos con
cierta fascinación desde lejos. El segundo track “untitled”, más oscuro
y lleno de ansiedad, como ese feeling de estar en plena calle de una
ciudad llena de gente, pero sin tener a nadie, viendo como los entes se
sumergen en sus ciclos rutinarios sin percatarse siquiera de la
existencia de otros como ellos. Cerrando “paraíso”, más visceral, más
de adentro, más de paz y sosiego, reflexionando en casa sobre la
intrincada maquina que mueve las cuerdas de la ciudad y de los entes
que en ella moran como una colonia de abejas, donde cada quien en su
rol la hacen funcionar como un reloj imperfectible. Tenemos el placer
de entregarles esa exquisita obra de un citadino del tropico, nuestro
primer lanzamiento oficial.

Textone

http://www.textone.org

Dominick Baier and Bao-Nghi Droste are not in a hurry – and we should be thankful for that. The laid-back arrangements of “turm3disko” grant each of their meticulously crafted sequences ample time to self-assuredly strut their stuff and show off on the mental catwalk before remeshing with neighboring sound threads to form tight-knit yet surprisingly flexible textures. Much attention is paid to intricate surface detail, yet all songs are based on a profound understanding of deepness. Inbetween the high and low ends – vast expanses of open space to wander, wonder, and get swept up by the meandering pads probing the boundaries of consonance. “Hitpotential” sways and swaggers its way directly into your heart, “Glitchfu_k” proves that edgy oddness can be formed into a captivating groove, while “Beatliner” is a giant steam engine churning out dense bass puffs under overcast electro skies. As a special encore, Mannheim’s _lounge collaborator Nanospeed reworks the ethereal “Atmung”, sending it through an industrial bread slicer and reassembling the pieces into a triple-layer club sandwich.
