• 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 […]

                • Ângela Polícia – Pruridades.

                  Gabi Von Dub, March 22nd 2017

                  Killer release on Crate Records, throwing some ripples of purity in the mind zone. In the collaborative and passionate Portuguese hip-hop scene, not every record reaches my heart as deep as this one. Ângela Polícia speaks with clarity, breathing every track with such an unusual honesty and tone, delivering to the world truth and compassion, […]

                  • Interview with Manfred Eicher – Founder of ECM Records

                    Dave Wesley, March 19th 2017

                    This man and this label fascinate me.  Eicher is credited as one of the first to use digital reverb as an instrument in minimal production.  ECM releases are not stream-able, currently, which is a bummer.  One has to procure practicalities or high quality digital downloads. Dave Wesley – Porto, Portugal

                      Gabi Von Dub, March 18th 2017

                      Memory plays an essential role in the Portuguese management of life.  And,  I dare to say, it’s one of our most cherished elements.  The past ignites the future and the creative mind triggers new possibilities and trails for the great archive. Music, in adventurous form, illuminates and elevates beauty, heights, and depths of our history’s emotional […]
