“An EP of African inspired hip-hop instrumentals — apart from the first, which features a verse from Cage Lu, a rapper who I collaborated a few times with (starting around 2004) and was slated to make a project together a few years ago. Being that we had roots from two different countries in the Motherland, I wanted the music and project in general to have that vibe but still remain hip-hop. Unfortunately, the collab project never transpired but some, if not all, the tracks here would have been on the project. Shoutout to Cage, one of the nicest poets I’ve ever worked with.”
“Quasi out of nothing – or, to introduce into the musical theme, quasi out of a misty, enchanted old magic forest. The forest that parents always warn their children about, but that only makes it more attractive.”
“Radoslaw Kobus presents his new 10-track album. A journey from dub techno to ambient and soundscapes to field recordings. An unbelievably dense depth of the sub-basses that mixes with a very special soundscape. The heaviness and depth of each individual track is surrounded by echoes and reverbs that will enchant you and take you on a journey. An absolute masterpiece.
The musical matter for the album Symbiosis was created for several years. This includes field recordings and studio experiments with sound processing. Passing it through various types of tapes and multi-layering different sound samples. The songs were recorded in real time on the A&H Gl 3800 analog mixer and 4 trace Tascam with the addition of a frequency filter and various types of reverberation and delays.”
“Welcome to the duo Mirror Dive from the USA on Insectorama. Their 4 track ep is full of the finest dub techno and wonderful dub roots elements. The 4 tracks are absolutely unique in their sound and therefore fit perfectly with Insectorama.”
“It’s been over a year and a half since we were last able to enjoy new music by CM aka Creative, so we’re happy to present to you Old Man Lugo EP!

So don’t sleep… download and enjoy… oh and if you want to show much needed support… buy a CD. Word up.”

“At a time when our memories of sweaty club nights seem to stem from a parallel universe, it seems just fair that Mar io’s latest broque EP dedicates it heart and soul entirely to atmospheric downbeat electronica. Twilight of Ages is full of reminiscences of the 90s, but rather than telling tales of dancefloor hysteria, it takes the turn right into the adjacent chillout rooms. Any many may recall that the chillout of the 90s has been the time and place where soothing ambient spheres combined with an unhindered drive towards experimental electronica have made a long-lasting impact on contemporary music by constantly bending and blending genres and sounds. […] the EP as a whole resurrects the heyday of dubby athmospheric ambient sounds and playfully broken downbeats across seven diverse and enchanting tracks. As such, the charms of Twilight of Ages will delight and embrace everyone, by no means limited to those who have experienced the escapism of the 90s in chillout rooms rather than the dancefloor.”
“Gun Power is a music band from Moscow. Nevertheless, the band was born in Thailand in 2017 by travelling musicians, who were playing in reggae bars all around Koh Samui and Koh Phangan islands. After returning to Russia, they decided to keep groovin’ together and that’s how Gun Power was founded.
This release is the result of their collaboration with Culture Horn Sound System and includes two songs and two dubs, following the format of all the releases of culture horn. The first tune is a rework of the classic anthem of Althea and Donna in a discomix style, while the title track Feel It is their first song ever released, written in a lovers rock style. Both tracks are accompanied by the obligatory dub mixes.”
