Dérive Dub : Notte Variations [BC74]

Dérive Dub is a new moniker for Dimitar Dodovski, elsewhere known for his varied works at labels such as Databloem and Shimmering Moods, or for his Moss Garden collaboration with Lee Norris of Metamatics and Norken. Despite all of these prior iterations, Dérive Dub feels entirely fresh and vibrant, an atmosphere of its own”

Brother Blue : Shoreline Drive [BC75]

“Musically, Shoreline Drive brings more excellent electronics on the deeper side of the spectrum to play with the rest of the Bedroom Compost catalog. Tim’s work is never less than superb and intimately engaging, and these five tracks are equal parts rugged techno rhythms, sultry dub chords and textured atmospheres that displace the listener. Shoreline Drive recalls not only Detroit classics like Echospace and Deepchord, but also many other deep moments in the Recycled Plastics library, from Ohrwert, Mon0, Axs, Zzzzra, Coppice Halifax and Textural Being, among others…In short, we are beyond happy to have Tim once again here with us, and Shoreline Drive feels both new and home-worn familiar, in all the best ways.”

Brother Blue : Automatic Writing [BC72]

Featuring two different takes of the track, it foreshadows a new EP that will soon follow. Enjoy the bounty of the year’s crops, the annual decay of their remains and the cool incense evenings to come.”

Demi Odessa : Body Memory [BC70]

“It is with great pleasure and eagerness that Recycled Plastics is able to introduce the listening world to Demi Odessa, a talented young man who has managed to create one of the best Summer albums we’ve ever heard. BODY MEMORY is notable not only because it is the first RP release to feature vocals, but because it embodies a beautiful confluence of youthful melancholy, seasonal playfulness, lo-fi charm and incredibly measured restraint. Elements of Demi Odessa can be traced all over the place, from warm tape-decked house music to minimal techno, from 1990’s trip hop records to classical synthpop – it’s all present, natural and unforced. Body Memory sounds easy, accessible and plays to both down and up moods at all the right points, still never letting the curtain pull back so much that we ever get a clear picture of the person behind it.

Keen listeners note: The limited edition CD-R comes with a disc-exclusive bonus track – a Milieu remix of “Don’t” that displaces Odessa’s lonesome vocals into a SAW 85-92 pool of bittersweetness for night-time cough syrup relaxation…”

Lamont Kohner : Broken [K2]

“The shadowy figure known as Lamont Kohner returns to Recycled Plastics, after disappearing into a smoky alleyway one night in 2016. He carries with him the new single BROKEN, a classic Kohner cut full of high-pressure bass, monstrous kick drums and dub stabs soaked in greasy city rain. A swirling neon romp that brings to mind equal parts dark dancefloor and film noir detective stories. Backing BROKEN is the equally heavy TENSOR, a hypnotic subway train of metallic rhythms and bass pulse, which passes through the underbelly of the city BROKEN lays claim to, echoing creaks and disembodied voices through pipe systems and black tunnels.”

Occur : Syrup [OCR2]

Syrup is the third official Occur release, and the band’s full-length debut. Clocking in at just over seventy minutes, Syrup siphons out a colorful array of sound-play from a surprisingly minimal hardware setup. Improvised live, with no overdubs, on two analog monosynths, one analog polysynth and two analog drum machines, the recording sessions were subsequently finalized with one last coat of paint via software post-processing. Despite Dropper being released as OCR2, Syrup was in fact recorded directly after Drum, chronologically.

Sonically, Syrup shows Occur in a lethargic, almost drunken and drugged mode, with notable references to screwed-and-chopped hip hop, smoked out dub techno and psychedelic synthesizer jaunts that hang like discreet curtains in one moment, and fall down a flight of Berlin-school stairs in the next. Syrup is often a thick, foggy experience, wading through gelatinous oceans marked only by irradiated meteors crashing into the melting waves. Evident are the band’s influences things like Autechre’s Amber and Oversteps albums, Cylob’s Cylobian Sunset, early Deepchord 12″s and platEAU.”

Orson Throb : Veditabba [BC64]

“After literally years of waiting, mastering, remixing and more waiting, we’re honored to present Orson Throb‘s ambient dub excursion Veditabba. The title, which means ‘experience’ in Buddhism (as nearly as we can gather), feels appropriate for what amounts to six meditations on a singular approach: Chords, filters, FX and field recordings, all with a pulse, but not always with actual drums providing rhythm. Similar in tone and mood to our previous releases with Mon0, Substak, Melotone and Textural Being, but altogether a more restrained work, Veditabba provides sonic imagery of a vibrant landscape, filled with sunshowers that gently blanket across green vistas of wild nature. Each track, a consideration and transformation of the last, until we’re left with a single wavering tone – a final stroke of the brush, one last thing to say. Orson Throb has a beautiful way with his sound design and sense of placement in a composition – one can never tell if he’s letting the reins go while the delays and filters oscillate on their own, or if every curl of a sound, every syllable of these psychedelic tapestries is deliberate and decided. Veditabba is a perfect work of warmth and introspection for us at Recycled Plastics, as we’re currently in the Winter season, surrounded by snow in our valley, and we hope you enjoy it just as much.

As an additional encore for Veditabba, we’ve included a nine-minute remix by Coppice Halifax, who Orson Throb remixed extensively for his epic Verdant Compost remix project. Here, Coppice Halifax returns the favor by creating a 7-track nearly 80 minute remix album to accompany Veditabba. This full bonus album is available as a second CD-R, packaged separate from (but sold with) the limited edition physical release of Veditabba (in a very limited edition of 10 copies!). The digital download also comes with additional photographs and an alternative cover, from Orson Throb himself.”
