Pacific Loon is an artistic project by Francesco Busiello born in 2013.
First of all he’s a member/composer of Starframes, later he focused on cinematics, field recording and visuals. His first ep “Growth”, was born after an accidental meeting between himself and Leana Pizzoferrato, music inspired by her images to analyze aspects such as the rise and fall of humain being. In September 2016 he was selected to compose a soundtrack for Artemisia Gentileschi masterpiece “Giuditta che decapita Oloferne” at Museo di Capodimonte in Naples. He had been always fascinated by the city, so then he decided to start doin’ mini concept records.
"It was darker, then lighter, till it was all drowned in splendor" it's a concept record based in Naples, it goes through esoteric and hidden places of my hometown. Every places got his own music composition, supported by minimal static videos; I did also experience some rough field recording, to make it part of music composition: I wanted to make a "low-fi" record, I didn't look for perfect sounding, cause it's reflects how the city lives. I've been always fascinated by light in Naples, warmer and delicate in spring, iced and cruel in winter, so that's where the title comes from. EP starts with big reverb and dark mood of "Piscina Mirabilis", a big cistern built by Romans, to end with "Santa Maria Della Fede(to wane without disparagement)" set in an old cemetery, one of the most brightest day of my life."

Serial Experiments 1 is the first collection of songs released from an extensive two year binge of spending time recording tracks/ideas between 2015/2017. (With the exception of "orchids" which was originally recorded in 2010 but unreleased). These songs were never meant to make a cohesive album, this one is the 1st of 4 series.
Arq is the new album of Par, project by Nacho Adda (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1983) based on experimental electronic music. While his previous works El Futuro (2013) and Ahí viene la Tormenta (2015) were more socially influenced, Arq is strongly marked by the modernist and rational concepts of modern architecture and its theoreticians. In this case, the producer attempts to translate these concepts to sounds and structures in 10 songs that make up the album. Preserving his experimental and minimalist nature, the album creates atmospheres that place the listener in different spaces and environments by using a dense or delicate, but always subtle, electronic sound palette.
"This album reflects upon how the city influences us emotionally from its structure and infrastructure; and at the same time it raises questions, driven by the sound atmospheres it creates, about alienation, the degradation of the public area and our perception of community"
It was recorded and mixed by Nacho Adda and mastered by Emiliano Zapata. The cover design is by Nacho Adda with 3D modeling by Carlos Laviña.
Dubtrak, recording artist and music producer from Toronto, Canada has been delivering his unique blend of dub, global beats and trippy psytrance electronica since 2008.
Dubtrak’s music has been compared to The Orb, Underworld, Banco de Gaia and the like, but with extra organic ingredients, some exotic spices and unexpected twists.
"Out of thin air" is Dubtrak's 5th full-length release. It represents quite a departure from earlier, bass-heavy, psy-dub oriented grooves, found on the previous releases. Here Dubtrak experiments with some samples from those earlier albums but the sound goes through an ambient treatment, heavily processed into epic dream-like soundscape, as imagined through the prism of Dubtrak's other project, Intersonic Subformation.
The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.
Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
