Shimmering Moods is back with a new collection of intimate, soothing and semi-experimental ambient tracks provided here as a compilation built on unreleased sound materials offered by regular artists / projects of the label. However this compilation gives the occasion to introduce to the listener a couple of external projects such as Sonornote or Laura Beatriz Rosenkranz.

Musically and stylistically we are immersed in a relatively diversified palette of ambient music, from abstract post-techno minimalism to cold sonic meditations and flowing retro-ish synth odysseys. The general ambience is still devoted to enveloping and sculpted sound textures, continuously flowing. Some looped-droning parts remind me the classical hypnotic electro work of Wolfgang Voidt in Gas while some others have an almost post-Gottsching / Ashra electronic minimal flavor. A few names are totally unknown for me so I discovered with a certain pleasure Purl & Yamaoka who delivers here a quite representative piece for the album, with discreet electro moves and minimal beats. The most acoustic, adventurous and pastoral dream ambient touch of the label is not present here, this despite the rustic dimension of the photograph used for the front cover.

In brief, Meditations 3 is a fine collection of modern, discreetly pulsating and cerebral ambient sketches...from igloo magazine

"SHORT FILMS FOR LONG DAYS"(DATABLOEM/HOL)

2016年12月 ヤマオカの新しいCDアルバム "SHORT FILMS FOR LONG DAYS" が
オランダの"DATABLOEM"からリリース。2枚組 21曲です。

Yamaoka’s (Kenichi Oka) second Databloem offering and what a fine one this is! All 21 tracks on this massive double album, clocking in at 140 minutes total, have been creatively composed, controlled and recorded in real time by the MC50 sequencer. Kenichi’s unique sound of loop based groovy sequences with a touch of oriental techno grabs your attention from the first till the last note, the perfect companion for long days and nights to come.

A celebration of 5 years of Indigo Aera.
Over the course of the past five years, Amsterdam based label Indigo Aera has evolved in to one of the most trustworthy and respected contemporary Detroit techno labels around.
Apart from new music that’s mostly analog based and highly energetic, head honchos Maarten Mittendorff en Jasper Wolff decent to the vaults of early day, soul-searching techno regularly, digging up forgotten gems to re-issue them with modern quality standards. Esteemed artists like Stephen Brown, Skudge, Steve Rachmad, Antigone, Louis Haiman and Kirk DeGiorgio all contributed to Indigo Aera, and there’s more to come.
In October 2016,

Indigo Aera embarks on their biggest release to date: a limited edition 5 LP box-set. The Lost Archives Special consists of unreleased tracks from absolute legends, to music that has never been released in a physical form before, to fresh compositions of techno’s most talented contemporary artists.

"DUM SPIRO AUDIRE" (CARPE SONUM/USA)

2015年8月 CARPE SONUMからリリースされたコンピレーションアルバム
"DUM SPIRO AUDIRE"に参加しました。

DUM SPIRO AUDIRE
Dum spiro audire.jpg

A selection of tracks from albums we plan to release in 2016.
As usual, it's "Name Your Price". We do this because when you make something a free download on Bandcamp, you prevent fans from adding that release to his or her collection, whereas with "Name Your Price", fans can still download for free and add the release to their collections. So we really do mean FREE. Of course, if you feel you'd like to support us by paying a little something for Audio Ergo Sum, your support will be acknowledged and greatly appreciated (we used to give back anything you paid as a credit towards a future purchase, but that ended up being somewhat painful).

released August 8, 2015
