• CoH – Return to Mechanics

    Gabi Von Dub, April 23rd 2017

    It’s the weekend and the madness militia is aligned to hit the twilight around the world. And. I’m here. Stubborn. Thinking  about the importance of silence as a daily exercise forever and ever. And good records. Damn good records. Made of sound, silence and the science of gardening through music hardware/DAWs. “Return to Mechanics” lights the springtime […]

    • Corroded Trip-Hop – “GEA” WeMe030 by J.K.

      Dave Wesley, April 18th 2017

      In the 2000’s, trip-hop was my gateway sonic drug to lo-fi deep dark dub techno and related genres… which have ended up as genre quicksand… engulfing my aural foci ever since. J.K.’s “GEA”…  Wo…  I haven’t heard anything as corroded, dark, jarring and cool since some of the earlier DJ Krush releases (before he went […]

      • Are Darren J. Cunningham (Actress) and Stephan Laubner (STL) having some sort of tryst?

        Dave Wesley, April 16th 2017

        I’ve been looking forward to the Actress – AZD full release for awhile and now it’s here. Does anyone else think that this new Actress release borrows heavily from Something Records and STL?  Are Darren J. Cunningham and Stephan Laubner having some sort of tryst?  Is Darren holding Stephan’s hand in the cover art for AZD?  Are […]

        • Anthony Rother – Sex With The Machines

          Gabi Von Dub, April 10th 2017

          Allow me to highlight herr Rother‘s classic “Sex with the Machines”, which was released end of April, 20 years ago, on Kanzleramt.   A defining masterpiece on its own, carefully designed with classic German precision, it purports an intimate “liaison” between the driven spirit of Anthony and his garden of buttons, keys, plugs and cables…  breeding […]

            • Paul Ellis – A Guitar Has Moonlight In It

              Gabi Von Dub, April 4th 2017

              I first learned about Paul Ellis, back in 2004, from a fantastic album with Craig Padilla, named Echosystem. It was a rewarding and timeless journey into deep ambiance, in the best tradition of  artist like Steve Roach, with whom Ellis collaborated.  But, it was not until a couple of years ago that i really became aware […]

              • Jacaszek – KWIATY

                Gabi Von Dub, April 1st 2017

                Her label-highness Ghostly International just put out polish luminary Jacaszek’s latest opus, which has been a matter of surrounding enchantment to my aural senses these last days. KWIATY was born when Michal Jacaszek stumbled upon the disarming words of 17th century lyricist/poet Robert Herrick. His profound yet hopeful simplistic prose, as well song like structures, appealed […]

                • Rasalasad – Thissidence

                  Gabi Von Dub, March 28th 2017

                  The Portuguese longtime sound explorer Rasalasad has a new album out on the German label Atenuation Circuit. Thissidence contains some of Fernando Cerqueira’s  best work to date…  a sensory five-track collection that elucidates his keen brilliance in crafting distinctive aural cinematics. This release is an early and remarkable contribution to 2017´s left-field and experimental music offerings. On repeat! Gabi […]

                  • Alexandre Navarro – Anti-Matière

                    Gabi Von Dub, March 24th 2017

                    French label boss and composer Alexandre Navarro joins the Canadian Archipel Musique for his new sterling album,  titled Anti – Matière. I can only guess if other music lovers, like me, oddly fancy being able to physically inhabit a song or album. Without a doubt…  that is the case for me. Navarro elevates his relationship between imagination […]

                    • Divisionists – ‘Say Can You’

                      Jon Kelly,

                      If you have a giddy imagination and a good set of potato ears, this fizzy London troupe will help remind you that noisy guitar histrionics and sunny indie pop melodies can often resurrect hazy, warm feelings not experienced since the late summer of 1992. The breezy, urgent harmonies of ‘Say Can You’, track one of […]
