!nertia – CeroCeroCero [Full Album]

!nertia is a sonic artist who pushes the boundaries of sound. His work explores the motion of sound through an instinctive way of working: he makes field recordings and then he extracts movement out of these natural sounds. Afterwards, he combines these sounds into live electronic music through the journey of inertia, creating a smooth and organic blend, fusing two different worlds into one.

This unique approach results into emotional and hypnotic art works, which mutate into performances to experience his narrative sound in diverse multisensorial ways. !nertia‘s live electronic performances have different shapes like art exhibitions and sound installations. Besides that, !nertia often collaborates with artists from different disciplines like graphic designers, fine artists, tattoo artists, musicians and composers.

Enjoy the ride!

Irammm – Les Deserts D’Irammm

Irammm is a new alias from an artist who lands on the Shaded Explorations label with a full length entitled ‘Les Deserts D’Irammm’. The idea behind this new album is to invite you into the archives of Irammm. It is “a kind of a testimony of the life over here, alone in the desert, maybe buried, struggling for water amidst the illusion of an oasis” and was written as a cathartic exercise to release pain and find peace and sorrow in sound, and that is something all listeners will resonate with such is the evocative nature of all nine tracks.

Mechanist – DYFR001 – Ether

DYFR is about working towards a more considered praxis on the part of listeners and artists in the ‘scene’.

This is the first ‘release’ undertaken as part of this project. The intention is for DYFR to slowly become a work shared by numerous artists in various mediums and fields dedicated to the consideration of cultural destination, the practice of making, sharing and engaging with music and art, and the thinking of intention and limits of creation within our chosen fields.

Areveeal – Amblex (Silhouette Tapes 004)

Roger van Lunteren( 030303 records, fabric(uk), Mental Groove (ch)) aka Areveeal embarks on an ambient journey full of sonic sideways and analogue synth jams, again displayin Follow this compass and path while the music proceeds, as it takes patience and experience not to skip through it.

With a duration of 63 minutes „amblex“ – released on the Frankonian experimental cassette label Silhouette Tapes – almost doubles the duration of RVL’s distortion tale „float“ (37 minutes / tmæins CD, 2001). Recorded in 1994 to music cassette, RVL releases an epic ambient recording that had laid dormant in his drawer for almost 23 years. Visual support comes again from the Dutch illustrator Merijn Hos (merijnhos.com, 030303 recs/Utrecht). His artwork perfectly underlines all acoustic nuances of „amblex“, easily inducing synesthetic impressions in the listener.
