MARCUS FISCHER Loss (12K)

MARCUS FISCHER | Loss (12K)

Loss is the long-awaited and anticipated follow-up to Marcus Fischer’s acclaimed Monocoastal (12k1063, 2010). Fischer created Loss over several years, finding inspiration to complete it during his time at the Robert Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva, Florida, in early 2017. The album is a particularly emotional work as Fischer explored what loss means to him and how to cope with the permanence of absence. The result is decisively somber and perhaps one of the darkest, most emotional albums in the 12k catalog.

CLAUDIO PRC volumi dinamici semantica records vinyl and cd

CLAUDIO PRC | Volumi Dinamici (Semantica Records)

Claudio PRC debuts with his second album called Volumi Dinamici, the title is a tribute to Luigi Russolo (1885 – 1947) known as one of the first noise music experimental producers. As suggested by the cover, the tracks featured in the album are totally into dark ambient and techno: each production seems to describe a fantasious and underground city, where a dense fog blurs all the feeble lights.

Into My Own AROVANE & HIOR CHRONIK

AROVANE & HIOR CHRONIK | Into My Own

Arovane & Hior Chronik return to A Strangely Isolated Place with their second album as a duo, following 2015’s ‘In-between‘. ‘Into my own‘ finds Arovane and Hior experimenting with distinctive feelings, styles and moments throughout the twelve tracks, creating an album full of twists and turns. Featuring a similar ethereal ambience to In-between, delicate instruments, field recordings and more melodic electronic influences are now apparent, forming a tangible storyline, as the duo leave you standing on the edge of a journey unknown, lost and lonesome, a soundtrack to anticipated escapism. Conjuring many moments of discovery as you step foot into this unknown world, the appreciation of finer details and textures slowly become apparent. You wander apprehensively across fresh autumn leaves, crisp from the morning’s fog amidst a glowing soft light as day turns to night.

WIL BOLTON | Night Paths (Hidden Vibes) - CD Deluxe

WIL BOLTON | Night Paths (Hidden Vibes) – CD Deluxe

Wil Bolton is a London-based artist and musician, whose work uses guitars, acoustic instruments, vintage keyboards and effects to create warm and emotive melodies, fragmented and submerged among beds of droning ambient textures and environmental sounds.

Night Paths is an album of dreamy ambience inspired by reveries of moonlit summer nights, walking aimlessly through forest paths. Made with a refined instrumental palette of electric guitar, analogue synthesizers and looper pedals, asynchronous loops and layers merge and collide in hypnotic lulling repetitions. An array of stomp box effects and crackling amp noise blur and disrupt these tones. Swathes of gauzy reverb and woozy delays and chorusing effects evoke daydreams and soft-focus memories.

ANTON KUBIKOV | Whatness (Kompakt)

While the last Kompakt offering from legendary Russian synthesists SCSI-9 dates back to 2008, when the duo released their album Easy As Down, co-founder and techno/house virtuoso Anton Kubikov kept himself busy cultivating his own label Pro-Tez Records – and establishing a career as solo artist with a clear penchant for dub-infused soundscapes and ambient music. Whatness is Kubikov‘s first solo full-length under his proper name, weaving airy and iridescent sonic tapestry that takes up where his excellent contributions to the Pop Ambient compilations left off.

Anton Kubikov‘s special ear for ambience and tonal spaces was always an integral part of SCSI-9‘s musical DNA that would alternate between tight dance workouts and vast melodic range – but it’s as a solo artist that he truly started to explore these spaces, following mysterious sonic trails into foggy, reverb-heavy territory. Kubikov‘s contributions to the several installments of the Pop Ambient compilation series announced the arrival of a promising new project in our talent pool – a promise more than satisfied with the immersive sound bath of first solo outing Whatness.
