iGL & Alecho : From a Droplet [DPH046]

iGL & Alecho is an electronic music project from Athens, Greece, consisting of Konstantinos & Alexandra. From A Droplet is their debut album release. It is the story of a small atomic structure and its journey to the stars. So significant was this molecule’s appearance it would change worlds and be the matrix of life on this planet. It is a conceptual dub album revolving around the journey of life, from the water to the stars, as it is described through the titles of the tracks, but also through the inspiring artwork.”

aardonyx : The Octopus (Part 1 & 2) [self-released]

The Octopus opens with the atmospheric ‘The Darkness Unfolds’ which bursts into life with analogue synths and syncopated breaks. Track 2, ‘Hole’ abruptly follows with sharp precise drums and sinister growls leaving space between phrases to create movement and keep the listener on edge.

The EP continues in a similar vein with ‘Six Steps to Escape’ which maintains the energy with rolling breaks and heavy toms interjecting to attack the senses. Next the EP sees a turn in a different direction with the minimal half-time tune ‘Under’.

Part 1 is finally concluded with another dark half-time tune ‘Down to Nothing’ which contains a similar sound pallet, bringing the ep to a close with a patient murky swagger.

The second instalment of ‘The Octopus’ kicks off with ‘Distant’. Melodic phrases complement the obnoxious growls in an urgent onslaught augmented by heavy bass and snappy breaks.

‘Lower’ is next to follow on the EP; bringing with it dark overtones of a post apocalyptic world suspended across a bleak landscape.

Then, taking the energy in a new direction, the third track, ‘Control’ has a more uplifting vibe and encompasses a more liquid sound to the selection.

The soulful melodious frequencies continue with ‘Soul’. The guitar plays the lead role in this dreamy nostalgic roller which finally makes way for the title track ‘The Octopus’ This serves as a finale to the 10-track release by the North-West duo, completed at the end of 2020.”

Markus Masuhr : Structures of Emptiness [Pragmat#018]

“This 11 track album takes you on a journey into the emptiness of the structures of endless loops and deep hypnonic patterns. Dystopian drone and surface elements condense the apparently empty structures into a dense whole and let you down into the deep uneasy soul of the sound.”

Eterna : Organix [Insectorama098]

“Welcome Eterna to insectorama with his incredibly relaxed track ‘Organix‘. The perfect route for a red sunset in spring. Ekodust and Markus Masuhr each made a remix for the track and thus expanded the dense, deep atmosphere of this track. At the end there is also Ekodust’s track ‘Magnetic Drift’, which puts you in the effect of floating particles and the echoes make you forget space and time.”
