Minute Of Arc : Grit EP [self-released]

“Here it is, the first official release by Minute Of Arc: Grit EP. Originally not a MOA project, but it defined the creative process of everything that I have recorded under the MOA moniker ever since. Now you might ask yourself: ‘Where is all this music you have recorded ever since?’. Good question. It hasn’t been released, yet. I have been saving/hoarding those tracks for the right moment and format. Turns out I am not patient enough to wait for that, albums and EP’s are stacking up as it is, and I want the world to hear them.

These tracks first popped up on my Soundcloud back in early 2014. The ‘UK Rude Bwoii Cut’ of the title track was actually suggested by someone in the comments, I thought that was a great idea and followed through. ‘Stimuli’ and ‘K-complex’ are the result of a mindset that helped shape the Minute Of Arc sound: do what feels right. This often means that these songs are hard to pigeonhole into a genre, but do have a unique flavor to them.

** ‘Name your price’ in January, first 200 served. **”

Fingerflood : Beats And Stabs And Kick In Four [NYB-EXT 021]

Fingerflood is an electronic music project born as a part of the many musical extensions of Gaetano Fontanazza. What we have in this debut release named Beats and Stabs and Kick in Four is the strong intent to basically dive into the fat obscure electronic moods of dub techno, somehow near to the Berlin scene if you like.

The release has an ideal split in the middle of its playlist, switching from dub techno to more dub bass idm-oriented tracks. Songs flow of course but rather than a continous stream of consciousness they almost seem to have a kind of ideal structure of arranged, or deranged pieces of music.

The feel of ‘opera prima’ is clear here. The title itself winks at the well known Propellerhead album of the nineties, which was an experimental sound lab in its way.”

300 Degrees : Free Fall [BLK008]

300 Degrees returns to Blikmuzik with an 8 track mini-album with an unexpected twist to emotional melodies and chilled out vibes. While his previous releases were based on a more traditional drum machine sounds and acid squeaks, Free Fall enters the territory of an after party mood. Relaxing grooves, with an emphasis to melodies and emotions while the drum sounds are very little prominent and hiding behind the beautiful melodic synth sounds.”

Mustatunturi : Giehkirnjarga [BC58]

Mustatunturi is a mysterious artist who hails from Russia, and has been producing music for a very long time – this is nearly all we know. He informed us of his being inspired by living in the Far North, snow, ice and the polar lights of the Rybachy Peninsula, from which the title of this work is derived. Sometimes, however, as many other RP releases have proven, knowing less about the artist and their intentions only serves to place the focus completely on the music. So, on BC58, what do we hear?

Deep, dimly lit soundfields that seem to recall minimal electronic works from Robert Hood, Plastikman and certain Chain Reaction wax. Driving grooves anchor a glistening, lonely city filled with silhouettes of industrial structures and streetlamps that only seem to illuminate the lazily falling slanted rain and detritus. There is a cold distance at play here, between artist and listener – a deliberate wall, beyond which sits a void that longs for human touch but never quite knows how to accomplish it.

Many elements of Giehkirnjarga are classic drum machine and synthesizer sounds from all eras of techno records, and in this way, the album feels as if it is not quite modern, but a recently unearthed archival recording from twenty years ago. A perfect passenger for night drives and oily neon sign-lit bar windows, leather seats and voyeuristic Polaroids…longing and self-imposed exile.”
