4T Thieves : Fame is an Addiction [mhrk280]

Fame is an Addiction sounds like a cassette you found while walking on the beach, half burried in the sand, case slightly warped by the heat of the sun, little pebbles and bits of seashells embedded inside, tape loose and almost melted. You rescue it, clean it up, spool it in, and when you play it you discover that the noise of the sea waves somehow got imprinted onto it and melded with the music.

Every tune is deep within its own comfortable bed of noise, each sound treading through thick viscous aural quicksand, beats pop in from behind lush canopies of strings and pads, flocks of melodies swirl above, clouds of frequencies cast their shadows on top of everything else and the place becomes that bit cooler. Every tune does paint a scenery indeed, each is really alike a place you inhabit for a few minutes. They all feel tangible and expansive, they welcome roaming and exploration, so much is happening there, so much to see/hear/feel, so much to discover each time you return.

It all sounds old and fresh, damaged yet fully contained, at the verge of collapse yet tightly controlled. There is certainly a story being told in this music, but it’s a different story for each different listener. It’s the kind of music that burrows in and pulls out of you as much as it brings and it’s that mix of the internal and the external, right here and right now, that makes it an entirely personal experience.”

Virtually J : Autocracy Mage [mhrk267]

“Long time ago, in the relatively small Black Sea coastal city of Varna, Julian Kalchev a.k.a. Virtually J became a kind of local pioneer and an inspiration for a whole generation, being the first to explore ways to compose and produce electronic music programmed, edited, played on a PC. He’s been important part of the scene since then, contributing, for example, to the essential VA series ‘Kokaku’ on Jisatsuken. With his last LP released 20 years ago (yes, in 2001) and after having him contribute an outstanding remix for Autonomaton’s latest EP and a killer track on the ‘Eastern Depths IV’ compilation last year, we are really excited to announce the release of his new album Autocracy Mage on Mahorka.”
