END OF ALL THINGS is the first album for the Polish composer Krzysztof Stanislavsky and it is the first release of a new series called IYHHH. Ideally composed as it was a soundtrack, the album, thanks to the sequence of the titles ("Labirynth", "Final escape", "Revealing the pain", "Now I'm ready", "Severe brain damage", "There's no way out", etc.) and the different atmospheres proposed by the tracks, make me think of a proper movie. Based on a mix of industrial sounds with loud rhythms and ambient noises plus a rich orchestral presence, the eleven tracks of the album create a convincing and involving atmosphere that make you think of Hollywood movies and I'm not kidding. The alternation of calm moments followed suddenly by growing tension atmospheres show the quality of Krzysztof as soundtrack composer. This album was a surprise for me and I hope that someone will notice this guy who's ready for something really big!

Mixing techno and house Art Bleek is back with a full length album titled MESSAGE TO THE DREAMER. Bringing in hypnotic and Miami house lushy atmospheres Arthur Pochon on the ten tracks of the album focused his efforts on the creation of a progressive atmosphere where the alternation of bass lines and rhythms are the main elements. Melody is at the service of the rhythm which is now syncopated and now 4/4. Sounds come and go while the main rhythm bounce and lead the whole track. Now obsessive and now dreamy Art Bleek will please the lover of house music...

Interesting debut album from this French band, they play a kind of pop rock which owes a debt to band like Blonde Redhead and Pulseprogramming. It's unusual from releases like this, but the best part of it, are the experimental pieces like "Monday 7 24", "City nation" and "La plus petite tempête de neige". The rest is well written and played, it's a good car album but non so original to say it will be in any playlist of the year.

Noah Brickley a.k.a. Noah 23 has almost 20 years of activity into the independent hip hop scene with ten albums on his back. The people at Vermin Street decided to celebrate with a collaborative E.P. where you can find Vinyl Blight (Vermint Street's Nick musical outlet) duetting with Noah on the original mix of "Blackstone" followed by five remixes of the tune. They are brought you by Mochipet (the Glitch Hop version is based on lead synths and man, he knows how to make those oscillators work!), Dsub, the man behind Boston's Glitch and Wonky Hop monthly "Lost In Bass" and partner of the Glitch.FM radio show of the same name, brings a less aggressive version which is still able to make you bounce while the synth pads create the atmosphere. Innerfuze's Itc Hop version keeps out the main melodies and replace them with reverbered drums and bass frequencies. ParanoidZen's Head Spin mix sounds like a two step/d'n'b dark psychedelic one. ArcRunner is the last one and turn the track into a grime industrial tune. Another great release that you'll find exclusively at Additech starting from May the 26th.

With fifteen years of activity into the electronic field, Auddie is releasing his latest 12" for the Full Panda label. The opening track "Bergamotte" is a eight minutes techno obsessive tune based on bass lines alternation. The second one, "Goldmund", is a bit more hypnotic with looping elements and light industrial rhythms here and there which couple the analog drum beats. The third and last one "Craz electron" is based on minimal rhythmical and melodic progressions with the add of treated vocal and guitar samples toward the third of the seven minutes. Nice one...
