“The World’s Recreation is the title of Crennwiick‘s impressive 8 track album. The sound envelops this concept through intelligent, progressive layering and his use of expansive, sci-fi textures. Complimenting this, there are warm, analog instruments, bouncy basslines and linguistic synth motifs. He explores a much-loved Digital Diamonds fringe sound that borrows from progressive and minimal techno, deep house and electronica. At times it can be euphoric and inspiring, other times just downright groove-ridden. You’ll feel right at home listening to this masterpiece.”
“Various Hearts Year Two is our way of celebrating our second anniversary on the label. This compilation is to thank everyone for the great support they have given us during the first 24 months of the project’s life.
This compilation includes an unpublished track by each of the label’s member artists this second year.
Each of the artists that the label represents is an a independent sound from others, a different sound, a special and unique sound.
This compilation is not based on genres or styles, it simply represents a little of each of the artists on this Label this second year.”
“For the release of our first Queensland-based artist, we are stoked for CVU008 to have come from a connoisseur of all things electronic, and burgeoning producer, dj, and programmer: 88756.
88756’s multidisciplinary, focused approach to music and art has seen a torrent of releases since 2019, almost always accompanied by imagery generated through an automated video generator that was written in python. Concurrently, this approach has honed a certain sonic precision that is ever present in these tracks; everything from oldschool electro to modern polyrhythmic madness.
On remix duties – Olympic Pool Maintenance League, another one to watch in Brisbane – takes us through a mind-altering remix of Self, one that churns and wavers through a broken soundscape.”
“Presenting the 4th album on S27 from London’s prolific producer HATCH, this archive of tracks were created during the sessions that would become the ‘Writers Bench’, ‘Arcanoid’ and ‘Hatchism’ albums. You could consider Archive as the ‘B-Sides’ however we feel it easily holds its own as a standalone album.”
“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.”
“Osiris4 has set free a dualistic beast into the sky with their Contrast EP. It encapsulates the line between fierce, progressive and melancholic, scenic techno while maintaining tenacious textures and tone colours. The EP is atmospheric and moody featuring powerful synths and biotic rhythmic loops. In the darkness, glimmers light.”
