Asian Dub Foundation - A History Of Now (2011)

Asian Dub Foundation. Album nou. Dnb si Dub cu un ritm electrizant si instrumente neconventionale pentru stilul dat.
Mult metaaal :D si ethno, buna dispozitie si energie.
A History Of Now begin NOW :)

"In a world which seems to change beyond recognition in the space of a heartbeat, Asian Dub Foundation meet the challenge with an electrifying new album. “A History of Now” is ADF in widescreen with a vast array of sonic weapons at their disposal, from the strings of CHI2 to the radical melodies of Nathan “Flutebox” Lee udating and expanding their sound considerably but still staying true to their distinctive genre-smashing spirit.

Lead track “A History of Now” sets the lyrical tone for the album – “Too many ideas running round inside my brain…canʼt tell the difference between my TV, internet or me” and reminds us “You canʼt download the sun”. Fundamentally “A History of Now” is a powered-up meditation on the modern world, asking what kind of people we are becoming (“Urgency / Frequency “ ) and warning us about the dangers of becoming slaves to ever mutating new technology (“Futureproof”).

There is a Japan only tribute to the great city of Tokyo, and also a special appearance by original ADF bassist Dr. Das on “This Land is not for Sale”. Whether we like it or not weʼre ALL living in the History of Now , so who could be a better guide than Asian Dub Foundation …"

Lemongrass - Ambient Land (1,2 ep ) (2007, 2010)

2 albume de ambient de la Lemongrass. Foarte nebosnuite, pentru ca e Lemongrass si e ambient. Si ..foarte frumoase(din aceleasi motive :) )

The lion never sleeps. And Roland Voss never rests. This soaring man surprises once again, and presents Lemongrass’ first ambient release.

Starting out as a drum and bass artist then fusing his own downtempo-lounge style to now making ambient tracks? Whats scary is that Lemongrass can perfect any style he takes on! This albums is no exception to that.

Schiller - Die Einlassmusik 7 (2011)

Schiller - proiectul numit in cinstea poetului german din sec XVIII- cunoscut pentru stilul sau original...uplifing melodic trance.. si care in principiu niciodata nu a reusit sa-mi provoace un interes sau sa impresioneze gusturile mele in muzica.
Am dat peste albumul asta, as usual, intamplator. Fiind unul din f. putinele releasuri aparute in 2011, iar plictiseala prea mare.. fara prea mari dubii a ajuns in playlist.

Prima impresie a fost ca pana ajung la sfarsitul albumului o sa cad in depresie si o sa incep sa-mi sun vrajitorii din oz in cautarea unui remediu..
Lounge/ chill totusi prea sumbru.. melancolic.
Senzatie asemanatoare cu o plimabre dimineata intunecata, dupa afterparty, printr-un parc acoperit de zapada in care timpul si orice forma de viatsa s-a oprit..fara ganduri..fara dorintse..fara destinatie.

Insa dupa 2 piese organismul a deschis portalurile compatibile cu darkwave.. iar ziua de munca si-a incetat dreptul la existenta.

pe vrajitorul din oz..oricum am sa-l sun.. )

"Schiller is one of Germany’s leading electronic artists. The multi-Gold and Platinum-awarded project has been created by electronic musician, producer and composer Christopher von Deylen in the tradition of teutonic sound-pioneers.

Over the last years the Echo-Award winner and Grammy-Nominee performed more than 100 sold-out concerts - highly acclaimed by the audience and media.

Schiller’s albums feature many well-known German and international guest vocalists and musicians such as Colbie Caillat, Lang Lang, Sarah Brightman, Moya Brennan, Kim Sanders, Peter Heppner, Mike Oldfield, Xavier Naidoo, Mila Mar and Tarja Turunen (formerly of Nightwish).

On his live tours, Christopher von Deylen enhances his music with breathtaking visual performances. In August 2006, Schiller appeared as a special guest at the final concert of Depeche Mode’s ‘Playing the Angel Tour’ in Athens." (c)

Solar Fields – Origin # 01 (2010)

Plimbarea prin labelul descris mai jos a mai adus o surpriza placuta: albumul aparut in decembrie a celor de la Solar Fields. :)

"Origin # 01, is the first chapter in a series of four albums which aim to present Solar Fields' music under a new light. The artist dived into his studio archives and discovered unreleased little gems. A simple idea came along to share with fans and followers this incursion into the life of a contemporary composer.

The tracks on Origin # 01 were created over the course of the last ten years.
At times we'll be tempted to give a date to the music composition because there's a specific feel to it which reminds us of a moment or of an album; at others we're thrown in the pure flow of inspiration and that is timeless.

Magnus Birgersson opens up the audio spectrum and spices up his music with guitars, bass, drums, balalaika, sitar; once again reminding us what a talented multi-instrumentalist he truly is.

Origin # 01, a multi-coloured archive made of ten genuine and intense songs.

Asura - 360 (2010)

Un release de psymbient foarte placut, de la Ultimae Records.

Cu tot respectul pentru Vibrasphere, Sync24, Carbon Based Liform, I Awake, nu prea am postat muzica formatiilor pe care ii reprezinta Ultimae.(singura exceptiea fiind Solar Fields).
Asa ca, mi-am propus sa adaug mai multe elemente de psy in maisonul de silence de aici :) Incepem cu Asura.

"Charles Farewell aka Asura opens two outstanding chapters in his musical odyssey with [ 360 ], a powerful cinematic downtempo album which captures and enhances the essence of the original Asura sound with its slow grooving rhythms, entrancing melodies, deep flowing pads and ethnic instrumentations.
This fourth album from Asura will stand as the coming out of Charles Farewell as an incredible composer of overlaping ambient genres, from ecstatic to chilled, groovy to uplifting, he offers the audience a wide open musical journey with finely chiselled orchestrations and a strong sense of space and timelessness.
Mostly instrumental, the album offers a sublime vocal introduction courtesy of Ayten and discreet voice overs from the artist."

Hidden Orchestra - Night Walks (2010)

Hidden Orchestra(in trecut cunoscuta ca Joe Acheson Quartet), ne invita intr-o calatorie in lumea tobelor vii si a basurilor adanci cu o deep influenta clasica si jazz.
O muzica de stil nou, insa care a pus accentul pe instrumentele traditionale.
Dupa parerea celor de la lastfm, muzica a fost influentata de asa trupe ca Aphex Twin, Debussy, Xploding Plastix, Radiohead, Squarepusher, Madlib и Gene Krupa.
Dupa parerea mea, "moodul" cel mai asemanator ti-l induc cei de la Emancipator :)

“can only be described as a beautiful noise” – BBC Introducing in Scotland (Album of the Month for September)
“a highly emotive, celluloid-inspired journey through one of the greatest films never made” **** – The Skinny Magazine
“a soundscape that truly envelops you” **** – The Sunday Express
“every bit as jaw-dropping as DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing” – The Daily Record
“a gem, a chattering, pulsating collection” **** – Is This Music? Magazine
“these are lullabies primed to pounce when the clock strikes midnight” 7/10 – Clash Magazine
“Stunning stuff” – iDJ
“The stunning debut from Tru Thoughts will blow you away” – XYZ Magazine
