“At the beginning of the day the light slowly comes through the fog of the night. It finds its way and surrounds you with its warmth. The deepest melodies rush past you, accompanied by echoes that don’t want to end and pull you into the depths of the chords. The rhythms won’t let you go and dive deep into your inner self.”
“When the fog slowly rises in the valley at the beginning of the day and covers you like a gentle layer of relaxation and then the clarity of the day appears, then you are already in the middle of a journey full of mystical stories. This is exactly where the new album by Deemkeyne takes you and shows you the perfection of rhythm and melody in harmony with never-ending echoes and timbres.”
“This 4 track ep by Gregi is completely different from all other previous releases on insectorama. Yes, it’s definitely dubtechno, but the very best prime time peak dubtechno. The perfect sound for letting go completely and surrendering to the driving rhythm with its wonderful chords. The fog thickens completely and you only notice the flickering of the strobe. Dubtechno is so versatile and this ep proves it very clearly.”
“Something special on Nightwind records: Last December Danny Wolfers met up with Japansese digital dub legend Taka Noda aka Mystica Tribe to produce this Far East style heavy digital dub album. Custom made lo-fi oozing echo effects transform synthesizers and drummachines into a comforting mist of arcane sludge, laced with Taka Noda’s enchanting melodica playing.
“Breast and Vulture was inspired by personification of ‘Nature’ from ‘Iconologia’ by Cesare Ripa (1560-1622). It was a very influential book containing emblematical representations of virtues, vices, passions and natural phenomena. Nature is depicted as a female figure with milk poring from her breasts and a vulture on her hand. This simple yet powerful image reaveals universal truth that life is accompanied by death, and death is accompanied by life. ”
“We continue digging into the lost archives of Springline Records, one of the most underrated reggae and dub labels of the UK, which has been operational from 2003 until 2012. With artists coming mainly coming from the UK underground, the style of the label was strongly influenced by the Jamaican roots music of the 70s with a sound very kin to that of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s Black Ark studio. After 10 years of operation, two vinyl releases and many tapes and digital releases the label stopped its operations in 2013, with the owner of the label Gibsy Rhodes deciding to put an end to that musical adventure. What is left nowadays are some articles/reviews on the internet and some music scattered online, reminding the era of a great label, which unfortunately did not get the recognition it deserved, as well as a usb stick handed over to us by Gisby Rhodes, with some musical treasures from that time: demos, unreleased and rare tracks.”
“The third album in my DAVID LYNCH series is here! Blue Velvet is one of my all-time favorite films from my all-time favorite filmmaker. I have no other way to better pay tribute to things I like than to make dub albums. Weird right? I hope this scratches your Lynchian itch, and if you like it maybe I’ll do another one in the future! Lost Highway in dub – anyone?
This album was a labor of love that could not have been completed without the amazing efforts my production partner Wise Owl, and the incredible featured guest DUB ROBOT! The music without them would have been good, but with those two I think its GREAT! Heres to many more Black Market records with these two.
If you enjoy this album, please consider joining the Black Market Patreon or subscribing here on Bandcamp! I make all of these albums for free, and rely on the generous donations of my fans to keep this project afloat. Thanks everyone, and make sure you LISTEN LOUD!”
