Neo / Rejinald : Inceptive [CVU017]

“One of our strongest core beliefs here at camp de la CV is that of authenticity. In our releases, in our voice, in our presentation, we aim to strip away all the unnecessary marketing speak, remove the disingenuousness that can come with online promotion, and do things for the love of it, not to follow a trend or appeal to a certain group of people.

So we do not say this lightly: Neo/Rejinald, real name Jack Raymond, is a once-in-a-generation type of artist. For having only been in the game for a relatively short amount of time, Raymond’s sound design, originality, composition, and technique are all beyond exceptional; freakish even. Apart from founding and releasing on the All Sorts imprint who we also collaborated with for ASCV101, Inceptive is the first comprehensive work that he’s put forward. The LP is split across two aliases – one more techno leaning (Neo), one DnB-oriented (Rejinald) – and we are thrilled to be able to present it to the world.

Absolutely thumping low ends, bright-yet-gritty pads, and steamrolling percussion occupy the virtual A-side of Inceptive, still upholding Raymond’s sense of feel-good techno. On the B-side, we find a dynamic, endlessly warm set of Drum n Bass rollers, that will fill your minds and hearts with joy. A truly spectacular listening experience through and through, combining the best parts of dance floor euphoria and at home introspection.

From us, please give this a listen and download at your leisure, straight from Soundcloud. You won’t regret it.”

Raverstaywifme : Pseudoscience [CVU016]

“Unveiling another special, relatively young Melburnian producer, Raverstaywifme presents the 16th edition of the Connection Verified Unreleased series: Pseudoscience. The mystery-clad hardware wizard caught our eyes and ears mainly through a bunch of wild self-released tracks that he put out online, with the wonky, tough, granular sounds grabbing our attention instantly. The Pseudoscience EP is no different.

Heavily influenced by the 909-focused, stripped back sounds of prior generations of electronic music, the release returns to the basics. Interesting sounds, beautiful rhythms, huge production, and the ravers sensibilities. We’re chuffed to have recruited a fresh new face to the label, and this EP is a wonderful showcase of what he can do.

Free to download as always, just hit the ‘more’ button on each individual track and get this audio all up in ya.”

3thical Plant Experiments : Equatorial Visions [CVU015]

“Returning for his fourth venture on the label, one of our oldest flagbearers Simon Mann presents: 3thical Plant ExperimentsEquatorial Visions. A new bearing on Mann’s workflow, the 3PE project represents an unmistakable pivot in terms of sound design and production, turning from the more witching, dubby sounds of his namesake alias to something more humid, thermal, and organic in tone.

Describing the three tracks on Equatorial Visions perfectly, the EP vaults between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, as if to sail through the warm air that sits above the equator. They are lively, animated, and sonically pleasing through and through.

I guess what we’re saying is that these tracks are a delight to listen to; a welcome new chapter in Mann’s artistry. As if we need to say it again, this release and all others on the CVU series are free to download straight from Soundcloud. Float away at your leisure!”

.cite + half slept : Protanopia [CVU013]

“The 13th volume of our CVU series comes to us in the form of a split EP, featuring two artists who are both friends of the label and electronic enthusiasts in their own rights. Both .cite and half slept have been working overtime to shape and refine their sonic inscriptions, and Protanopia, for us, is a tight summary of all this work.

The EP is split between balmy, shape-cutting rominimal and more aggressive, hardware-driven techno sounds, with .cite and half slept also combining to bring you the first (official) track under their collaborative alias: Kolorblind. These works evoke a variety of places and spaces, from moving your feet to the swung rhythms as dappled sunlight penetrates the dance floor, through to more robotic movements as you approach dusk; punters grooving in sync to the calculated beats being laid down.

We probably needn’t remind you again, but our Australian-exclusive series CVU is and always will be free to download. Just hit the ‘more’ button on each track to unload some seriously good electronic music.”

Connor Wall : Products [CVU012]

“If we spoke about Connor Wall earlier this year as a budding producer, it’s beyond question that now, even with only a few months behind us, he’s blossomed into an emerging heavyweight of Australian techno.

Going from strength to strength after a series of ballistic releases on Bomphcast Audio, Glasgow’s Oscillator One, and yours truly in collaboration with All Sorts, the Products EP showcases Wall’s trademark rigid, cold, frenzied sound.

His passion for intense, DJ-friendly tracks shines through in this release, with six unique Products on this EP. These tracks epitomise the rapid development of artistry through time, and Wall is certain to be a stalwart figure in our beautiful community, now and well into the future.

As always, the CVU012 is free to download straight from Soundcloud. Just hit the ‘more’ button to find the files and let them fire up your ears.”

auto/mates : City of Cinder [CVU009]

“The auto/mates return with more saucy synthesis after their first EP with Bomphcast Audio, bringing another mixed bag of emotive, harmonious, interesting tracks to the CVU series. The tracks, as you’ll hear, are a testament to ADMINISTRATOR and half slept’s workflows when producing together, seamlessly sliding in and out of the driver’s seat, and pushing out tracks at a rate of minutes.

City of Cinder borrows elements from the electro, techno, and melodic spheres, meshing the genres in a peculiar yet pleasing way, and utilising anything from straight modular blips to digital-sounding plug-ins.

The 9th iteration of Connection Verified Unreleased is, as always, free to download and use however you please. Stay tuned for more exciting release coming out in coming months.”

Surana : Underneath [CVU007]

“While nestled quietly yet authoritatively in Melbourne’s live music scene as a performing percussionist of many years, Surana (aka Lucky Pereira – @surana-dj) strikes up a debut for CV and for this alias with: Underneath.

Pereira’s first soirée into faster, bolder productions, Underneath bumps up the tempo and catapults us through a fine selection of dance-worthy basslines, live percussive riffs, jolted hi hats, and bombshell energies. All designed for laying down in the booth, all designed to shake a leg to, all designed for maximum oomph.

You know when the phrase ‘this person is one to watch’ is thrown around? This time, we damn well mean it. Pereira’s grip on groove has him set on a trajectory that will surely see him excel into the future. At CV, we are excited to see him and those around him grow.

As always, CVU stands for killer Australian artists, and is free to download straight from Soundcloud.”
