With a beautiful story behind it, this mesmerising EP is available for free download…. Check it out below!
Dysphemic – Inter-G-Lactic
Released 19 Jan 2016
Returning with his second release on Gravitas Music, Dysphemic perfectly melds glitch hop with 1980s sci-fi soundtrack vibes on “Inter-G-Lactic”. Julian, who is better known as Dysphemic, has co-created this cosmically minded EP alongside his brother Yiani as a tribute to their father, Vernon Treweeke, who passed alway last year. Well known for his visually psychedelic paintings, Vernon was a well respected figure within the Australian and international psychedelic community; his legacy lives on through his sons and their musical memorial to his achievements.
The freshman tune “Age Of Vern” kicks things off with conscious hip hop cut fueled by classy Spanish guitar and funky yet smooth bass lines. Things get a bit heavier with the title track; well-tuned synthesis plays beautifully alongside filtered, twangy guitar riffs. Called “a tour de force of Balkan and Middle Eastern string sounds” by The Untz, “Anatoli” dips deep into an exotic aesthetic while continuing the larger aesthetic of the album. “Decompression” brings up the rear with its intricately resampled reese basses and broken, pulsing drum beat.
‘there is so much music to explore in the netlabel world! New find, bass and space curates allot of great netlabel music in a selection of fav genres… ‘rascal recommended’
Bass and space has been created as a navigation aid in the wide ocean of netlabel releases and creative commons music. To support netlabels and netlabel related artists is also a purpose.
It’s focussed mainly on “deep” electronic music like tech house, deep house and dub techno. However, with an open minded attitude in music, releases in other styles like dub, ambient, experimental or rock shall be considered as well.
CA043 on Clan Analogue Recordings
Clan Analogue’s latest release, Aeriae‘s second album Victris, has been quietly making its mark as a modern IDM gem in the Australian electronic music soundscape.
A thirteen-page booklet by Wade Clarke (aka Aeriae) with notes on the inspiration and techniques behind each of Victris’s tracks, can be downloaded at aeriae.com/victris.pdf
Ambitious in texture, programming and melodic design, Victris explores the modern sonic parameters of electronica through the prism of deep historical insight into music, production and technology. With Bach-influenced melodic counterpoint, Spector-inspired mono mixes for discipline and impact, and the use of sonic detritus from the world of obsolete technology, colliding concepts of sound have been reconfigured for new expression in the modern digital age.
Aeriae is Sydney-based electronic composer and producer Wade Clarke. His grandfather was an engineer and almost-concert pianist, and Wade grew up playing the piano by ear. Aeriae’s novel aesthetic is informed as much by Warp figureheads like Autechre as by classical music and 80s electronic film scores like Tron and Escape From New York. Wade’s other involvements include writing, reviewing, Interactive Fiction, illustration and the Apple II.
Victris is available through MGM Distribution in CD and non-physical formats from usual sources. Witness Aeriae’s controllerism live in action at his Melbourne performance at Forgotten Worlds on Saturday November 15th.
