James Ginzburg
Six Correlations

James Ginzburg might be better known to you as 50% of Emptyset, that most crushing of electronic music projects. This solo record, which was put together for a Berlin commission earlier this year, engages with a wider palette than that group,...view item »


Emptyset
Emptyset

Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext....view item »


Ellen Arkbro
For Organ and Brass

Ellen Arkbro recorded For Organ And Brass on a particular kind of rare church organ which allows for certain harmonic relationships: indeed, we are into advanced microtonal territory with these two compositions. The long tones of the organ and the brass trio Zinc & Copper intertwine to create potent...view item »


Yair Elazar Glotman
Études

Yair Elazar Glotman learned to play contrabass the way that classical music demands: practice toward an intuitive understanding of performance. As always, though, his work is critical of what we're taught to remember music as being, and Études is an aggressive exploration of his instrument free of its pre-establish...view item »


Emptyset
Signal

Emptyset continue to tunnel into the nature of sound and space with Signal, a document of a live performance. The group broadcast their sounds from the venue, via radio transmitters, over thousands of miles and back to the venue again, to see how the transmission through the atmosphere altered the sound. Conceptually ri...view item »


Yair Elazar Glotman
Compound

Yair Elazar Glotman is a sound artist and composer and on Compound he teams up with Marcello Silvio Busato and Rieko Okuda to bring percussion and piano sounds respectively to his solo contrabass explorations. Glotman’s experimentations rely on repetition and in pushing th...view item »


Roly Porter
Aftertime

This is nothing like Vex'd, but it's familiar. Massive, glacial, pads enlivened by staccato beats/samples. String quartets playing in deserted iron foundries - powerful and fascinating. All the tracks are named after planets in Dune and seem to evoke the flavour of those fictional places (as someone familiar with the novel). With more character ...view item »

Emptyset
Material

Watch your bass bins cuz James Ginzburg, Paul Purgas are on a mission to test them to the absolute limit with a triptych of experiments in the dynamics of low frequencies. And I mean LOW. These recordings document three installations located at "a decommissioned nuclear power station in Snowdonia, a vast concrete testing bunker below ...view item »

Cevdet Erek
Davul

Cevdet Erek presents his first full-length LP, fully showcasing his unique approach to the large Davul drum. Erek’s technique involves re-tuning, various implements, exploitation of the acoustic resonance of a space and lessons learned from the kind of noisy electronics more usually released on Su...view item »


FIS and Rob Thorne
Clear Stones

This first-time team-up of two New Zealand talents is an intriguing one. Maori sound artist Rob Thorne generally has a more approach to sound that is more abstract and more rooted in acoustic instruments than electronics producer FIS, but the space where ...view item »

Joshua Sabin
Terminus Drift

Here’s an album made entirely out of field recordings of metropolitan transit systems and electromagnetic interference, with material sourced from Scotland, Germany and Japan. For his debut full-length, Joshua Sabin has taken these sources and processed them into thickly-textured and surprisingly dramatic pieces of music. ...view item »


Eric Holm
Barotrauma

Eric Holm captures incredible sounds from incredible places, and manipulates them to fully portray their original environment. His 2014 debut Andøya was sourced from contact microphones on power lines in the arctic, Barotrauma heads south to the fjords and brings us the soundscapes of the sea-bed, reflec...view item »

Blessed Initiative
Blessed Initiative

Deep work here from the classically trained Yair Elazar Glotman aka Blessed Initiative. This record is a piece of sound art composition built out of foley recordings, micro-tonal instrumental textures, tape manipulations and much more besides, resulting in a work that constantly twists and turns around the liste...view item »


FIS
From Patterns to Details

With a couple of releases under his belt with Tri-angle records, and his debut full-length on Loopy, FIS has moved to Subtext for his follow up to 2015’s The Blue Quicksand Is Going Now. Since starting to release with Tri-angle FIS has moved into more free flowing electronic experimentations that ...view item »


James Ginzburg & Yair Elazar Glotman
Nimbes

The art instillation 'Nimbes' was created between James Ginzburg, Yair Elazar Glotman and Joanie Lemercier, a visual undertaking that was projected around a "360 degree dome" in Canada. Seriously, you're gonna have to turn your head a lot if you want to take the whole thing in; the music aims to be as panoramic by reverberating with the same omn...view item »


Cevdet Erek
Frenzy – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Frenzy is an acclaimed new Turkish crime thriller film, with a fine original soundtrack by Istanbul musician Cevdet Erek, also known as part of the band Nekropsi. 2 side-long pieces are presented here: 1 is seething with energy and rhythm, the other is a muggy textural exploration. LP on Subtext, with a...view item »

Eric Holm
Andøya

London-based American electronic musician Eric Holm has a curious and immersive new LP out. He's recorded some sounds on a single contact mic on a telegraph pole on the arctic island of Andoya, and transformed this into a shivering bit of bunker techno full of muddy fluttering static and crunchy mechanical rhythmic loops. Initially it ju...view item »
