Document 3 - Writhing Serpents

Restless and complex, practical and idealistic, caring and brutal, self-serving and naive - and this is just scratching the surface of the contradictory personality that has fueled the myth and legend of Document 3. On the one hand there is the temptation to dismiss Document 3 as a frenetic dreamer consumed by the movement and romance of revolutionary electronic music. On the other is an admiration for his total commitment to the Utopian belief that he can create sonic soundscapes so conflicting in beauty and brutality, they make the listener cry with the overwhelming feeling of pure bliss.
SUBWISE - an experimental music netlabel from Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
Label unites beginners and experienced musicians writing experimental electronic and not electronic music. At this time, unlike previous projects, Subwise participants and organizers consciously renounce hard sound, and do the accent on more soft, but not less interesting experimental music.

Offthesky - Inside Outside Corners


Offthesky - Rare Decay
Label: Resting Bell
Catalog#: RB017
Format: 4 x File, MP3, 320 kbps
Country: Germany
Released: 15 Nov 2007
Genre: Electronic
Style: Ambient
Rare Decay presents four careful though stunning pieces. The entire release from beginning to end is a perfect compliment to lying down and watching the clouds lilt by. Or like listlessly gazing on a silent snow fall. It is a fitting soundtrack to harbor the softer side of Winter's brittle curse. It's warmth beckons beauty that stirs fire in the icy corners of a torpid tundra landscape.
Take a rest and enjoy this great piece of music.
"The presented music should be meditative, experimental, electric, peaceful, beautiful, exciting, acoustic or grounding. It could be nearly anything.
As a netlabel, Resting Bell will release music in MP3 format under the creative commons license for free." - Resting Bell.

Bumpfoot always seem to have something up their sleeves. Some days its retro, other times its funky and today its just beautiful. This release, produced by a Russian duet and apparently one other contributing artist is another one that stands out above the rest. It's a mixture of ambient and lofi downtempo beats. It contains some piano pieces which are haunting and sets an almost uneasy vibe... spooky in a sense. Personally I liked the first track Reset the most and it's staying in my collection. It's got a nice tribal rhythm in it which reminds me of a starry night at home. It's recommended download for all ambient heads out there.

This one is dedicated to my dear friends in Japan. My heart goes out to those enduring the effects of the earthquake in Japan.....

r.roo - And thoughts



r.roo - Into A Cloud
Label: Abstrakt Reflections
Catalog#: AR_011
Format: 11 x File, FLAC, Album
Country: Argentina
Released: 28 Feb 2011
Genre: Electronic
Style: Abstract, IDM
r.roo music is all about northern wind gusts, hopeless sky, gloomy clouds and despairing drops raining. Clouds all below, the swarms fall down, heavy, pressing, rain binds and thunder makes deaf. Your body is dipped in cold flow, your motions slow down, you can no longer control yourself.High keynotes interfere with drops, lacerated sounds and grinding. Everything mixes; and now you are integral with music. You are a huge royal wave. Sometimes it seems that the creator of this groaning world just makes fun of it. It seems unusual and strange to hear hopeful faint notes in this slough delirium, as if sky is hesitantly pierced by the rays of a sun. Eventually, sun rises and clashes with a stream you drown in. You are blinded but the flow retreats in dread. But can you hold on, choking and waiting for the dawn? you never know how the battle ends. Anyway this sullen world will push you out at the most interesting moment to leave you ignorant.
Tracklist:
01. My
02. world
03. transformed
04. into a cloud
05. to scatter
06. dreams
07. and toughts
08. to drops
09. at dawn
10. of autumn
11. sun.

Genre: Electronic

Digitalis is the first full length album by Photophob on laridae. 50 minutes of ambient, easy listening and space idm, forming the soundtrack for an imaginary science-fiction-movie. or maybe a computergame, who knows ... it's all about highly frequented spaceports and asian megacities located in the outer regions of the known universe, about huge starships, crashed on lonely planets with purple oceans and silver moons, about cosmic passenger ships, performing their docking manoeuvres like an elegant space ballet. it's about a better place called space.

Special thanks go out to the artists for their participation in this project and the wonderful tracks they have provided, and finally this release is a big thank you to all of our visitors who have helped us become successful over the past couple of years. We hope you enjoy." - Kikapu

Genre: Electronic

tonAtom is a Germany-based netlabel, founded in march 2002 and is working as a strict non-profit alternative to the established label and publishing system.
tonAtom stands for netvideo and netaudio productions ranging from ambient to experimental, far off from airplay, dancefloor, club or other limitations.
our artists and our releases are selected to be strange and intelligent, challenging and inspiring, timeless and cutting-edge, innovative and essential.
Three years after their last, self-titled release on tonAtom, Sternenspringer finally return to tonAtom.
And their making kontakt is a great start for 2011. They have become more self-confident and less compromising. They are closer to Düsseldorf now, but leaving room for yet unheard sounds as well. This results in an even extended musical versatility and turns "kontakt" into music for both the dancefloor and the headphones.
But they are still unmistakably Sternenspringer, and as such they continue to play in their own league.
Hailing frequencies open! We are happy to get in "kontakt".

Mitoma - Interstellar Debris
GENRE: Experimental Electronic, Ambient, Glitch
CAT NO: [S27-067]
DATE: March 7th 2011
http://www.archive.org/details/s27-067Mitoma-InterstellarDebris
http://section27netlabel.blogspot.com/

"...an excellent journey of sonic proportions. Razor sharp rhythms pulse frenetically over an open spaced and futuristic backdrop. There are moments that hint of rust and mechanical decay, as beautiful tones dance and weave behind writhing chemical reactions which would make a befitting soundtrack to the birth of the universe. Put simply, a stunning and moving piece of sound art."

Good Weather For An Airstrike - Lab



Good Weather For An Airstrike - Jigsaws
The Good Weather For An Airstrike project was initially conceived at the beginning of 2009 to help Tom Honey (also of Post-Rock band Sleepless Dreams.) alleviate the issues caused by suffering from tinnitus, which causes a ringing sensation in the ear and can often result in difficulty sleeping. The idea was to create a collection of relaxing sounds which would help induce sleep.
Released Sunday 6th March 2011 through Hawk Moon Records.

Sk'p - Seyefer



Label: Planet Terror Records
Released: Dec 2010

Sk'p is the new project by Belgian producer Skip, who has had releases on Enough Records, Them Records and Pterodactyl Squad. After hearing the glitched out glory of his track 'Eye Earth', we snapped him up sharpish and this ten-track package is the result. Swaying between heavily arranged melodies and frenetic rhythms, this is an album of extremes and one that will definitely appeal to fans of imaginative breakcore, chiptune and golden-era Warp.

All his releases characterize through a clearity in sound. It it obviously, that he is also quite active as a graphic artist. So he is responsible for some of the good artworks of the latest Phonocake releases. He also designed a Diascope-picture and the outfit of our cassette-release. You can always count on him for organizing event-actions. Together with the poet Andreas Paul he had some presentations, mixing sound and words. His favourite sequencer-software is Energy XT. Since 2008 he is part of the Phonocake-Admins, also listening some of the new Demos. He came to us, putting a Demo-CD in one of our letterboxes.
