Two self-titled ‘classic ambient’ releases on the Past Inside The Present label (扎克and Dawn Chorus And The Infallible Sea) as well as another two on Shimmering Moods (Music For Sleep and Luna Monk).
Michael Begg and Marcus Fischer & Burke Jam each explore “Vanitas” (a symbolic work of art showing the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death, often contrasting symbols of wealth and symbols of ephemerality and death) in their own way.
Dave Wesley breaks through the fourth wall with cinematic references in atypical dub-techno… while Dr.Nojoke also explores unbeaten tracks (with his bass guitar).
Porya Hatami and friends: Arovane, Aaron Martin and Roberto Attanasio. Quality contemplative releases from Karl Records and Dronarivm.
Three albums by Stijn Hüwels released (almost) simultaneously: his solo album that got the inspiration from samples and fragments of various friends, and collaborations with Tomoyoshi Date and Norihito Suda.
Eilean Records’ imaginary map is almost complete. Two albums for the winter season (Ian Nyquist and Kenji Kihara), and two celebrating spring (Andrew Tasselmyer and Ciro Berenguer).
Ian Hawgood’s love letter to ageing synths, warped reels, and recording at low light.
Two different projects that demonstrate that 1+1 = 3: Q3A by Sebastian & Daniel Selke, and Robert Heel‘s In Between.
Michel Banabila does what he has wanted to do for a long time: releasing an ‘orchestral’ album merging an acoustic ensemble with samples and electronics.
