“Based in Girona, Spain, and with a musical background orbiting around jazz, funk, groove and ska, Ramacod (Ramon Macià) has created a mental musical salad that he tries to explore and exploit in every release. His productions are heavily based on a cut-n-paste, microsampling technique, always pursuing that magical moment when apparently diverse an unconnected sound samples earn a new life when put together, and the music that emerges becomes more than the sum of its parts. Fang (‘mud’ in catalan) is an attempt to go back to the signature sounds that are on the base of his musical taste, work with them, massage and mold them until they become the dough for a new bread. This project has also taken a new dimension with the remixes of three fabulous sample manglers like Flat Nandez, Oowt and Nigel Perera.”
“Five years after ‘Seven Mirrors’, Inner is the new album by Nunun (Cesare Discepoli: guitar, effects; Massimo Discepoli: drums). Composed and recorded between 2014 and 2016, this is the duo’s more introspective album, resulting from the need of a musical research by the two musicians, but at the same time always crossing the path of experimentation and improvisation present in previous discs.”
“Album by Jared C. Balogh, pushing his jazz and avant-garde influences to a more classical composition album. The tracks invoke the vulnerable uncertainty of falling in love again, inner doubt, introspective reflection, expectations of wanting to connect with someone and being afraid of taking the next step.”
“Fifthteen Memories is the fourth label compilation of CYAN and represents the musical style and evolution of the label over the last years. Electronic music which commemorates about musicians who kept in memory about the labels musical progression.
Memories from the past and an outlook into the future, wrapped into soulful music in genres like Dubtechno, Downtempo, Jazz, Electronic and Ambient.
At CYAN, we now celebrate 7 years of providing electronic music, and so this compilation is dedicated to our artists, supporters, followers and music lovers.”
“The seven multilayered pieces presented here are hybrids meticulously built up of acoustic and electronic elements both composed and improvised. Synthesizing a complex relationship of lyricism and abstraction, acoustic double bass and drums define melodic and rhythmic figures against an ambient field constructed of electronic textures. The emergent sound is a weave of modallyinflected melodies floating over propulsive, intricate rhythms and harmonic blocks carved out of electronic matter.”
