MarceXL :: artefacto


Somewhere in Hamburg is an organisation where we sometimes cross the members of a very private club. All made up amateurs of a house particularly progressive. You have to go deeper in the entrails of this place to meet one of the main craftsman of the genre. Far beyond the apparently simple “artefacto”, MarceXL explores and opens some new perspectives. Try to do the experience on your own and, if possible, far from an hypothetic dancefloor scheme – Then, reassure you, you are not obliged to thank MarceXL and kreislauf, though...

Various Artists :: 10 jahre kreislauf


it was a long time that i wanted to experiment an editorialist workshop - a sort of live review as a dj set - this particular release deserves an editorialist experimentation - Then, what about a live construction of a review ? an unfinished building site of writing in progress for a special birthday more promised to a cure of perpetual youth than to nostalgia ? let's try it, and see the result - your live comments are, of course, naturally welcomed ...

Day one, it was last saturday, sept. 1st, wake up too early after an awful night. bad mood. My first reflexion goes to the fact that, as many concerned people of the scene, i'm waiting for this compilation announced by a few mails from Mogwai. As usual my first reflex is to go to phlow.de - Kreislauf, as a sort of dandy reflex, systematically puts a point of honor for being the first release announced each month on this particular site - phlow seems to have some update problems - bad mood.
But let's just talk music - let's just remember this initial surprise on first listening this "seite 1" intitled "Low Flying Fragments" - first smile of this french sunny morning, i like the idea of "seite", is it a reader reflex ? a promise of "seite 2" then seite 3 ? ... "low flying fragments" after a promising multiple "seiten", the atmosphere is going is weighed down - we will not wait for long - the extreme gravity of the awesome track of DeTrop is immediately collecting your attention and do not slacken the pressure - welcome to the birthday party ! ...

But from now, we are entering in a discreet area, a whispered appointment in a lonely place of evanescent and organic drones (Night-Time Epitome), a place of fractal stains images for Metafame, recently escaped from the brilliant “sooner ep” – from the time, the doors seem to open, ones after the others, it is probable that some of us will lose themselves there in this maze, however so coherent, and it is so much better for everyone ...

7 septembre 2007 – 11 :30 (don't want to write in my usual and suspect frenglish) C’est étonnant comme certains tracks ont parfois cette magie d’un quotidien illustré, l'untitled de Martin Maischein en fait partie, une parfaite osmose avec notre perception générale. Sans autre incidence, que d'être là, en une sorte de suspension latente, ils viennent se coller à votre vie, simplement s’implémenter sans complexe, devenir la bande son, toutefois provisoire, d’une réalité « enhanced » ...

Each time I meet the name of Alex Cortex somewhere, there is always a enigma for me, I cannot perceive the globality of this important artist - so much worse for me, his 'archive of 98' does not derogate from the mystery - I must invite him to::the questionnaire, we will know some more ...

Ah … ‘walaskjalf’, If I had to go back on a previous review words for the blog views&reviews, and opinion on the “skyland” of Max Marlow, today … I should probably said that these words (from January 2007) were far from being sufficiently “consistent” because I am not far from thinking that "skyland" is, to date, the best release of the Berliner - am I the only one to think it?

Well, about the “nummer acht” And in a recent e-mail, the same Mister Marlow was writing me “…also jungle wires sounds like the 'afterhour' of the world after mankind, like my track is telling about the deathmatch of it with all those horsewagons and red flags on top of dead bodies - right in before…” I must say I mostly agree on this so neo-expressionist vision, maybe we will talk more about someday or another...

13 september 2007 17:34 - I like the idea of displacement in Niteffect, its "last mohawk" opens horizons for geographical and human delicacies - is "last mohawk" ... a (nomad) cake ?

8 novembre 2007 17:51 - Sursaut quasi hivernal soudain ? à moins que ce ne soit l’amical rappel à l’ordre de l’homme à la casquette en début de semaine, nous voici à nouveau penché sur ces vastes entrelacs de sombres soundscapes tels cette sourde ellipse d’ouverture du lancinant « rch » de Messieurs Omas fgt et Patrice Valota , fascinant dédale secrets de (shock ?) corridors et échos aveugles, the « velvet stars » will not be to any help, He-lux have decided to better mislay you in order to make you numb with some rhythmic abstractions and uncertain voices exercice.

Max Marlow :: true spirit EP


This welcomed extra number double zero one from Kreislauf is including two precious tracks from the non less precious :: skyland, and two main exclusive tracks from the berliner. Then, when you will learned that all these precious little gems will give birth to a very limited vinyl edition, we shall certainly agree on talking about another success for Max Marlow and this new extra line of the non less and precious (extra) Kreislauf.

FeldFunker :: beyond the moon


To inaugurate its second ten, the Kreislauf label offers us a space flight - a magic of pop culture 70's spirit worthy from the greatest scenarios of cinema and I think in particular to the marvellous productions of Richard Fleisher, Irwin Allen, Thunderbirds, Man from Uncle, cosmos 1999 (for the suits and Martin Landau), without forgetting the masterpieces like "forbidden planet" or "Colossus: The Forbin Project" (remember the tremendous computer voice...) - Anyway, the moon of FeldFunker is certainly far from a poetical Meliès vision (for example), but there is also another certainty and after just one only listen ::
where can we get a ticket for the next flight ?

Engine Ear :: start the engine


Sometimes hybrid of the cult band neu! ('drehmoment') and always in mechanical fluidity, Engine Ear privileges a form of instinctive tribalism scented with nitromethane ... Start the engine !

Throatwobbler Manegrove :: disposabled weiredos of technocracy


where some are talking about a possible "dark industrial ambient techno", which is finally reducing a point of view to current single thought , others will probably have different certitudes, very definitely less "currently single thought" and as our old Monthy Python friends say :: "
"How have people mispronounced your name? How is it supposed to sound?
It's spelled "Raymond Luxury Yacht" but it's pronounced "Throat Wobbler Mangrove".

after the great "atmos" for serein natlabel, this release is the one of perfect plenitude for OCP - João Ricardo is from now on, to regard as an immense artist.

no thing(s) really cares these days, except maybe some deep thoughts and ... briefly, short emotions in suspension.

Ten & Tracer :: baker's blood

I am pleased to close this blog (views & reviews) with a release, which combined so much shared values and thoughts about what can possibly be an open-minded work, so far from stale genres and dogmas, full of creative curiosity for sounds and things around. Without complex, but with the faculty to influence notably the course on, Jonathan Canupp cultivates all these talents and some, less obvious, to discover right now.

Metafame :: sooner EP


As a dissident of Anti Trance Corsortium 666, in 2002, and more recently (2004) author of a splendid track for a compilation of the netlabel plataforma-ltw, the very discreet Metafame makes us the honor and favours of a three tracks EP, a great piece of work. 
Opening on a so elegant and fine writing "confoundhalf-pint", the EP offers a vertiginous takeoff with "ec-nomy" which admittedly have, removed an "o", but certainly not sparing of sensations. Third and unfortunately last, "quaverrack" invits the listener to remain on a "parenthèse enchantée".
Yes, sooner is, and will remain a magic bracket.

Miteigi Nemoto :: Entheogen


4th lp contribution of Miteigi Nemoto for the label, and once again,
Otium did not contradict its high reputation, even if the title of the exercice can miss interest,
see being reducing, in particular for the agnostics.

Marcos Romero :: definition of micro tech house

The original title was trully splendid, "viaje por el deep tech micro house", this sort of combined expression between theory and passeport for an open space journey of sound investigation. Then, from now, you will probably think that the actual name will not produce the same good attention to this project, reassure yourself and let you go to enter in this particularly hypnotic experience. Practising an exceptional rhythmic intelligence, Marcos Romero is a wizard ; a wizard able to hold a fluid tonality in levitation for, example, and our greater satisfaction. Yes, enter in, this “definition” and you will leave there only while knowing that you had just made a “viaje” in a very exclusive ritual.

Max Marlow :: skyland


First is this good surprise and nice gift … when you will have click on the link under these words,
these are the steps of an urban nomad and night bird walk of a solitary berliner, king for a day and undoubtedly one of the important live theoretician workers of the becoming netscene.
we are not yet at the end of enchantments.
Once passed, some perfectible manipulations, stays the echoes of the broken mirror ( "…sometimes he saw his real face, and sometimes a stranger at his place…" said the robots in the past) - But, already these reflections give up the place, or rather deviate with prudence in front of the road roller and the unrestrained race of the hustler, reduced to a furtive shadow.
"the pirate rebellion of skyland" does not slacken the pressure, quite the contrary, poking and ceaselessly on the wire of a circular groove, rolled-iron by an inalterable bass line.
And finally, what about "walaskjalf" ?
Well, are you talking of this gigantic track, which will make us remember for a very long time this :: skyland ?
i suppose, yes …

Krishve :: cochlea


Krishve will not remain wedged in the inner ear for a long time...
"scala media", as a recording field temptation, shares a sound exploration all made of obvious pushed tubular electric density.
"scala tympani" could put at evil the membrane, but materialisation of the sparks is still quite remote - hardly if the very orchestral final one is distinguished.
"scala vestibuli" closes the ep in an entrance made of post-symphonic layers lost between two worlds. the accents are often dramatic, the tension is particularly perceptible - We will not wait for long before joining a distant sarabande, brass band in phase of total obliteration.
Krishve will not remain wedged in the inner ear for a long time...

Various Artists :: pathmusick visits kreislauf


10 is the reference of this meeting of Kreislauf (our host) with Pathmusick, a very welcome visitor.
09 are the identity guests of the master of ceremony, Alex Cortex.
08 is surely a "night-time epitome" but it also could be a time passes, media noche.
07 as a laconic echo number of a distant voice, Stefan Eichinger (lopazz) have a melancholic thought for that whom we suppose Elisabetha being, and always this laconic voice haunting dehumanized corridors, loneliness?
06 as an inverted circular water movement for Seis Tormentas.
05 or was it 2 bad cop mostly disorientated.
04 is a short intermede, where the satyre is charming an innocent victim … a story to follow.
03 as a decentralized nerve movement.
02 ? please more than 2, of these so flexible harmonic tunes.
Number one is surely another track, but i'm not a number, i am a freeeee man …

The Stringed Theory :: supersymmetry




Call it "super" if you mean that the importance of using "super"lative is a determinating element to appreciate the "tiny oscillating strings forming the basis of everything" around the corner of the ... universe. We will probably agree on, as The Stringed Theory is giving us the demonstration of a quiet interlacing of drones and layers, reducing outlook in a working drawing distance -
:: supersymmetry is also the result of intelligent cross features with the visual artist, xNoleet, renforcing the "graphic" spirit of the release - a sketchy masterstroke

The Kirbi :: marathon EP

compiling some tracks from the last 3 years and around releases such as ::anonymous synonym (album for laverna netlabel in 2004), ::trembling of the turbid in 2005, last year's album ::love for grasshoppers or today's new track : "marathon", following also the recent (and brilliant) contribution to the first compilation of hw homeworks netlabel, Denis Aleksandrovich Fomenko (aka The Kirbi) is giving us a very talented pallet of neo-classic tracks and this ::marathon EP is a real fine opportunity to discover a quite seductive artist - a classy stride !

±•¬.¬ :: - - - - - / CYP3A4


Composed and recorded by ±•¬.¬ (electronic musician based in Nancy, France) during the last two years , :: -----/ CYP3A4 reports of the intense interest from the author for other "states of mind and unknown place in imagination, unknown colours" and the result is not far from a real new soundscapes exploration, revealing a deep sense of sound colorism (6ini05) and a real hability to materialize a half-hidden fog (brum).
±•¬.¬ is also the real expressionnist craftsman on restitution of an amazing "groundA" earth's crust - "noname", which closes this "cytochrome" (word for CYP3A4) release, already allows us to hope a coming new “psycho ethno archeo" activities report.

Aquarell :: lateral position

which are the concrete "weapons" of a seduction?
charisma ?
intelligence ?
beauty ?
talent ?
discretion ?
pace ?
elegance ?
delicacy ?
attention given to things ?
interest not pretends ?
one in particular, all these at once ?
if we don't give a certain attention, we can easily pass through these two formidables eclipses of named well, MM Christian Quast and Markus Newton - Aquarell refuses to marked a feature, and practices the art of elegant luminous opacity - the matter is marvelously distant but clearly marked.
A watercoloured weapon !

Petr Drkula :: surfaces


A confrontation, Petr Drkula welcomes you to an experience of one hour and twenty minutes, a confrontation on your own capacity to observate your mind and physical responses to a chamanic sound experience - dilatation, expansion, anamorphosis, and all the words you want, you are just in front of a hypnotic and evolutionary harmonic loop. Never the same never different, these ::surfaces are complex and multiples, but also absolutely enthralling.
