Vejopatis - Medziu Aidai cover 1Medziu Aidai

Vejopatis

From a review @ cassinihq.com:

“The album ‘Medzui Aida‘ released in January 2014, translates as ‘echoes of the trees’ and according to Nikolaj is a reference to the ‘mysticism that our nature is full of’. I have to say that it feels like the tracks are imbued with this sort of meaning from the first note and that it can be felt throughout the whole of the thirteen tracks on the album.”

“This is an album made in winter/spring 2011-2012, made completely out of field recordings that I collected during this period. Each track represents a set of places visited mostly at night. You can hear tracks made of sounds of snowy, nighty trainstations, people waiting and chatting about daily problems, melting snow, wind and other sounds describing moods of this slow period of awaking in my life.”

Enervant - Palescent TintsPalescent Tints

Enervant

From a review on discogs.com by 3cityjay:

“…two opening tracks steer in the direction of subdued and elegant minimal techno, but there’s enough peace and tranquility in the ambiance of “A Mournful regret” and “Fake A Smile” to float away in a carefree oblivion. Further down the lane, tracks like “Alarming Fascination” and Palescent Tints” introduce some broken beats with stimulating and lush vocals, thus carrying along in a unscrupulously dreamy way.”

From a review on discogs.com by councilof9:

“Averment” showcases Minimal Boffin’s classic dub techno style. I can’t say really that it offers anything new, but the tracks quality is superb and production quality is transparent and smooth. There is a certain DeepChord sound hidden in between the noises and delays, but it evades being a replicant by flowing closely to dub than to techno.

“…The cover art of it features images of water crystals made by a Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto. Water from which these crystals came up from was exposed to various positive things, like positive emotions, positive words of gratitude, compasion. Some of these crystals represent water being exposed to prayers of monks or beatiful music, some of it naturaly forms these crystals if they’re taken from a natural environment, which is not distrurbed by a human. Water which was exposed to negative things couldn’t form any crystals, only chaos…”

Taken from a review at http://thismusicisfree.blogspot.com:

Having a slew of EPs and compilation appearances on the labels Qunabu, Deepindub, LSD25, Load and Clear, Deep-X, Retrospective Zoology and Sound Source; Brickman now joins the Cold Tear family, with his first ever full length album. “The Dark” contains not only the robust dub techno stylings by which the Brickman sound is best identified, but also beatless moments of absolute beauty in “Please Let Go” and “Living In The Dark”, plus a bit of upbeat experimentalism in “Through The Gap”.

Dark Matter EP

Slownoise

From a review @ Suecae Sounds:

“The strictness of techno is definetly there, especially in the rhythms, while the relaxing forms of dub makes this into a journey putting my mind at ease. This combination is hardly new, but the level of craftsmanship Slownoise shows is rare. It is also quite gritty and comes with an unpolished feel, that should appeal to those who preferr to steer away from a crystal clear sound that sometimes end up sounding stale and lifeless.”

Optical Framework

Style: ambient, field recordings, experimental

“The original idea was to capture the essence of interesting places with as little use of synthesis and regular waveforms as possible. Instead, every instrument and sound was to be born of field recordings made during a year of travelling. Source material included soundscapes of rainstorms from the beautiful forests of Beskydy; storms over the towns, yards and burnt lands of the island of Brac; the industrial areas of Zlin and late night soundscapes from Brno City. In addition to these soundscapes, further source material emanated from the experimentation of sound produces by static electricity, electromagnetic fields and underwater recordings with homemade Hydrophones.<…>”

David Ya (Entropy Records): “Awesome work! Deep textures and subtle details in the sound. My favorite release of Cold Tears!”

From discogs.com, written by Escherichia: “This is a smouldering album, quietly seething through its drones, creaks and groans. It’s much more on the dark ambient side of things than dub techno, but there are some deep, murky kicks that enter on “Harmonized Letargy” and “Senecia,” giving the album an even greater sense of menace. It’s definitely not an album for all moods, but it’s perfect for dark nights or bleak, grey days.”

From a review at discogs.com, written by 3cityjay:

“… we’ve got Soulsonic and 101 with some IMDish electronica, Giriu and Slownoise serving some seriously sharp dub techno while Moowalker and SEN smooth the latter and turn towards a more stripped down and minimal take on the genre, a bit like Gas or Rod Modell on his GSSM project, and to brilliant effect I might add. There’s also an interesting surprise here, as Super Bad Beats (Soulsonic’s side project) and Rushkeys deliver two inspiring jazzy hip-hop tunes that wouldn’t feel out of place on, say, a Hyde Out Recordings release.”

SoulSonic

From a review at mojoteque:

“A good electronic release for a good wednesday. Soulsonic delivers a pulsatronic laserification, a very dense music full of details, sometimes immersing deep into ambient slow melodies; sometimes getting really on the aggressive side of Electro with saturated beats. This is an ideal music for the freeway at night, when your car gets itself progressively packed with weird people. Some of them you don’t even know, but you’ll get to it in due time. Have faith.”
