“With Quasi-Stationary Ambelion has brought his distinctive approach to electronic music to CerebralAudio. My first introduction to the work of Ambelion was in 2014 when I found a remastered copy of his 2008 release Waiting for Quarters. I was taken by his ability to mix Ambient, IDM, Berlin School and a host of other electronic music styles.
This release sees Ambelion’s more IDM approach to electronic music: lots of beats and breaks, with hints of swirling ambiance at times, and other times more mechanical counterpoint. This is really a return to the style of the 90’s, but with a modern touch that only Ambelion could envisage.
Ambelion is a Ukrainian born electronic musician who has been recording for over ten years. He has over 30 releases to his credit. He finds that even when things are going rough, he finds pleasure and joy in making music. It has been the major constant in his life, and will remain the major constant in his life for many years to come.
Listen to this release, and I think you will find that there is much heartfelt passion in this work. This is an artist who has been inspired by many artists in his vast collection of CDs. And yet, he has found his own way of interpreting these ideas.”
“HiKE returns with a fantastic Deep Techno Ep on the label. Shades of Dub Techno throughout the release, focused more on the atmospheres in the Techno realm than anything else. Smooth atmospheres highlight this release.”

“Formed in Malmö, Sweden by Martin Månsson Sjöstrand (vocals and guitar), Emil Engblom (bass) and Carolina Carlbom (drums and vocals), Dog, Paper, Submarine’s third Small Bear release may be their catchiest and most immediate yet. Recalling the sound of indie-rock’s golden era, the band have been favourably compared to the likes of Guided By Voices, Pavement and Sebadoh, whilst retaining a recognisable sonic identity of their own. Packing 8 songs into 20 minutes, Trouble On Earth veers from propulsive, fuzzed-up rock to janglier, sometimes more downbeat fare, making unexpected detours but always packed with inviting melodies. Existing fans of the band (and frontman Martin’s lo-fi side project This Heel) will not be disappointed, as everything that has made previous releases great is present here, with enough fresh twists and turns to make this record a vital addition to their catalogue.”
“Midnight Music Volume 2 – Enter the in between hours of the night. The space between darkness and light. That feeling we get when we are all alone. The music we listen to, on a long drive home.
Nuages Records is proud to present: Midnight Music vol. 2. Hand crafted by the best artists. This album is a trip from the past to the present and that fine niche in between. ”
