“It’s with great pleasure that after one year of silence Ekar records is now presenting a truly eclectic music collection. A compilation that consolidates old collaborations and open the doors to the new ones. A mix of talented artists but above all, beautiful people who do what they do out of love and not out of duty, feeling the freedom to express themselves as they see fit. With this free download compilation Ekar records also renews the goal of spreading creativity and passion without limiting the enjoyment to specific audiences, especially based on monetary reasons. Not a product, but music. Music by individuals for individuals and not for the masses, leaving to the user the freedom and the power to support the label and the artists as they like, based on what the music was worth to them.
If you like what you are listening show us some love!”
“The Abyss Within Us is an audio/visual project composed by Italian musicians Claudio Porceddu and Stefano Ferrari with the visual contribution by Italian cinematographer Daniele Giuseppe Bornino. The Abyss Within Us first release is a live studio sessions recorded during the winter 2017 in Berlin. Analogue drums and synthesizers, guitar and fx’s, moving images.”
“Creator of Techno and Experimental Music with an intuitive and analogue character. Deeply inspired by the surrealist movement, obscure symbolism and ritualistic incantations, his music seeks to invoke hidden, impossible images and bring to light the indecipherable messages buried in the unconscious.
Coming from a background which involves both early contact with more somber forms of musical expression as well as involvement and education in the world of art, his process and approach to electronic music seeks to overcome conventional boundaries of the genre and handle the musical material akin to the ideas of urrealism.
These concepts manifests themselves through an array of analog and digital, modular and conventional electronic instruments. Mateo has been focusing on heavily improvised live performances, in which shifting polyrhythmic material is fused with otherworldy, strange melodies, ritualistic drumwork and dronelike, shimmering athmospheric soundscapes.”
“Special Request drops the fourth and final album of 2019. Concentrating purely on the heavyweight original hardcore ethos of taking whatever you want from anywhere, these tracks are made for shelling down dances and losing your marbles.
Those who have been paying close attention will recognise the face-melting drum treatments from those instagram clips, constructed using purpose-built equipment and a healthy amount of irreverence.
Elsewhere we find clock mechanisms worked into the layers of various tracks, the voices of Francis Bacon, David Lynch and others & eventually one such clock speeding up to oblivion, merely hinting at where Special Request is taking you next…
Vinyl editions to follow in 2020 and will be released and deleted on the same day. Pay 0.00 for these downloads. Enjoy life.”
