Boundary

Boundary

You probably ever heard Ghislain Poirier (ninja tunes) and you know his skills as a tropical bass producer. But don’t forget that he hasn’t always produced some tropical bass. With this project under Boundary’s name, he’s back with an album which mix atmospheric beats, IDM and ambient. If you still had doubts on Poirier’s efficiency, that album will prove you that you were wrong.

Today’s pick : VNDL & R33 Soundmakin’

Unlike yesterday, today’s pick will feature two artists who strive in two different layers in this musical mesh. Yet, both of them appear on our Unlog Complex #01 project, which (nuff said) is still available for free download. Let’s start with…

VNDL – Gahrena : Paysages électriques (Hymen Recordings)

VNDL is familiar with our readers, through the podcast he’s provided some months ago and the track Mille fragments we’ve released with Blackelk Recordings. His work is something I really want to push not only because of the common approach of sound we share, but also because he’s a really prolific artist and whose sounds clearly evolves between each and every project he works on. We don’t want you to miss the chance to witness that.

So expect to deal with sound textures here. Remember that while music tastes can differ in many points between two people, we’re all sensitive to sound textures. It’s just a matter of context.

I like writing. I should do it more often. But sometimes, the description provided with a release fits way more when you want to describe it to someone else. It’s not always the case (and maybe a worst 10 album descriptions would be a funny game), but it’s the choice I’m gonna make now.

‘gahrena’ envisages a deeper exploration of virtual reality by using highly processed electric guitars as well as manipulated field recordings and a wide range of electronic devices. the sound on this album can be described as abstract electronica with a deep organic feel, where vndl’s inspiration and sonic research fuse with the amendatory work of nebulo, offthesky, pleq and c0ma.

vndl constructs a changing, mysterious sonic world recreated from aural landscapes already in existence. a gripping release taking you away to as-yet unknown environments – attentive listening required.

R33 Soundmakin’

Different topic now.

This broken beat / groove / hip hop oriented producer was unknown to me some months ago, until I discovered his project Klendatü on Bandcamp, thanks to a guy who’s used to stroll around the groove. Here it is.

If your question is « is it a free download », the answer is yes, and I’m even going to put tags on this article so everyone knows where those fresh beats are available.

Since then, we got in touch to invite him to join our beat tape project, and his track Octobre finally ended in the release. We’ve been discussing a lot on the final sound he wanted to have on his final, especially on his kick drums.

Despite my very selective (and boring) views on hip nop beats, this conversation made me understand the importance human groove takes in his abstract beats, which is confirmed by his latest release, a collaboration with MelodiQ.

Brace yourself, those two tracks got vibes!

Painting Pictures On Silence v2

Enig’matik is set to catapult listeners into a glitch fuelled daze of aural anti-gravity, with the highly anticipated second volume of their eclectic compilation series « Painting Pictures On Silence ». a 22 track journey encompassing some of the most original and unique producers from vast corners of the globe. From respected pioneers such as Si Begg and Fine Cut Bodies to artists such as Mindtree who represent an exciting new brand of youth wizardry, v2 is a release that will cement Enig’matik at the forefront of intricate and eclectic glitch based productions.

A place to get lost in the details, to imagine a world that doesn’t exist and to catapult your senses and imagination skyward, Enig’matik and its ever growing collective of artists constantly push boundaries with cutting edge digital technology, choosing to jack into a digital world where their fingertips create unfathomable expanses, exploring and ever reaching into a limitless world of sonic creation.

as a collective, Enig’matik is a breed of producers staying true to their own individual journeys into the unknown territories of sound exploration, whilst expressing themselves in a pure form of energy vibration. Intertwining personal experiences and distant memories with experimental lashings of abstract frequencies on their sonic canvas’s, each individual artist has their own unique stories to share, presented alongside likeminded artists in a future fuelled environment of microscopic life.

in a world of aural experimentalia where words can often be superfluous, Enig’matik invites you to strap in and make your reality what you CHOOSE to believe.
