Dabrye’s Three/Three Instrumentals out Feb 22
Listen to “Nova” Here
“Instead of bowing to current trends, Dabrye burrows further into gritty ’90s boom-bap and proto-electronic influences, weaving internationally-sourced samples into his intricately layered compositions.” – Pitchfork

In 2018, Ann Arbor’s Tadd Mullinix made his long-awaited return with Three/Three, a razor-sharp rap album that brought to completion a prophetic trilogy. But any Dabryefan knows it’s not over until we get the instrumentals. As was offered after Two/Three, Ghostly International now extends Three/Three Instrumentals, a collection of Mullinix’s productions sans MCs. Loose, incisive, detail-driven, his trademark beat technique stands strongly on its own, traversing American and British dance music, Jamaican sound clash energy, jazz/funk/soul sampledelia and beyond. It’s a sonic wildstyle that’s appealed to both hip-hop heads and IDM nerds for nearly 20 years.

Stream “Nova” on SoundCloud

Digital release is out Friday on Ghostly International.

Cold Spring presents:

– THE NEW BLOCKADERS –

**PRE-ORDER** THE NEW BLOCKADERS - 'Live At Sonic City' CD & DVD (CSR261CD)
THE NEW BLOCKADERS
LIVE AT SONIC CITY‘ CD & DVD
(CSR261CD)
   
Live At Sonic City includes an audio / visual document of TNB’s last ever live performance which took place at the Thurston Moore-curated Sonic City festival in Kortrijk, Belgium in 2017. 

Fans of Noise music will need no introduction to the work of TNB. Ron Lessard, of legendary US Noise label RRRecords, once stated, “I’d give the nod to TNB as being the first truly devoted Noise artists”. TNB served as a major influence on legendary Noise pioneers such as Merzbow and their influence on the current crop of popular crossover Noise artists such as Wolf Eyes is immeasurable. 

TNB’s performance at Sonic City can best be described as a noise symphony: metal-bashing and grinding, hammering, eviscerating microphone feedback, torrents of glorious mangle and harsh electronics all skilfully blended with a collage of manifold sounds and dynamics. Far from being a typical Noise show, TNB’s performance (if it can be described as such) contained elements of absurdist theatre and performance art, although I’m sure TNB would be loathe to be described as such. A magnificent display of The Art Of Noise, TNB as defiant as ever in their total rejection of everything. 

“For optimal enjoyment we recommend that this DVD be viewed with no sound”. 

CD and DVD in 6-panel digipak.

"17 Encores" follows the previous
work by Daniele Bogon (published exclusively in digital format and
with the name Alley), enriching the 10 tracks contained in "17" with 5
other tracks.
Through an imaginary landscape made of soft lights
and shadows, between moments of total abstraction in the Absolute to
more evocative moments of cinematic inspiration, the intimate and
personal soundtrack that develops in the first 10 tracks of this album
lead the listener in his inner journey, directed to the center of his
own private and hidden universe.
The surrounding sound space is
created with the fusion of piano notes, strings and synthesizers in
balance with elements of field recording and studio
work.
"Encores", the second part of the album, presents five new
tracks of a more electronic and experimental matrix, including two
reworks; the first, "Batman is Bruce Wayne" is the version of the song
as proposed in the audio/video live set; the second "Airport" sees the
participation of Push Against New Fakes who has decomposed the song by
reconstructing it in a completely new form.
The front cover and the
design of "17 Encores" and the single "Batman is Bruce Wayne" are
designed and made by Valeria
Salvo.

The first OM tape of this
year will be released on 31/01/19 – the second part in our ongoing
Echonomy Split Series, which might be only a split of sorts this time:
Le Mépris/Le Mépris. 

40 tapes + DL-Code, artwork, as always, from
Dicey Studios.

Look and listen:
https://otomatikmuziek.bandcamp.com/album/echonomy-split-series-2

Echonomy Series is looking to select works already released
in small editions or download-onlies and to recontextualise them. The
recordings put together here are from one and the same artist – or
are not, considering that 10 years have passed between sides A and B
and Le Mépris might be rather a means for creating music than a real
person.

Around 12 years ago, when a crowd mostly socialized
with electronic music discovered classical instrumentation and new age
composition, Le Mépris was subject to a minor media hype. The persona
Reiko Matane was too good to be true: a young, fragile japanese woman
with an alias from a Godard film creating exquisitly solemn piano
miniatures, replacing Tokyo’s constant humming with solitude,
creating a music as fragile as expected from a girl and as cool as any
given dude’s selected classical ambient vinyl collection. No one
wondered.

Back then, the real person behind Reiko and me sat
down over a drink on a few occassions and wondered, but mostly, I was
happy that my friend’s music got the attention it deserved, because
nonetheless, Le Mépris‘ music is one of a certain solemnity and sad
elegance. Its melancholy is excessive in that it leaves no room for
any other feeling, it is cleansing; a kind of no-prisoners-taken
ambient music you have to listen to, even if you attempt not to.

Now, Le Mépris is back. The two new pieces premiering here as a
counterpart to a selection of previously released tracks find Le
Mépris crawling deeper down into the dark realms of solitude; gone is
the innocent pop appeal of the former releases. While delay and reverb
were accompanying voices in the past, leaving ghostly traces of piano,
these dynamics have vanished in favour of effect-laden dirges where
the piano of ten years ago is more like a mirroring input for a
growing, self-feeding system. These new transmissions are recalling
the old recordings, they are a recorded memory, an ancient organism:
lowest possible movement, polyphone rustling and humming, a music
working on getting silent.
