    This is a joint release with Dublin net-label, Armed Ambitions/Organised Ideas - http://www.organisedideas.org/

    Ewan Hennelly, aka Herv, has become one of Ireland's best-known electronic musicians over the past number of years, amassing a considerable catalogue of releases on labels both at home and abroad.

    Herv’s music is a frantic swarm of 8-bit melody and syncopated percussion, punctuated by warm wind instrument and layered violin and cello lines. Live, Herv works solely with a laptop and Nintendo Gameboy. While much of his recorded output concerns itself with complex melodic and percussive interplay, his live sets lean more towards the harder end of the electronic spectrum, mixing chaotic chip tunes alongside breakcore and gabba. In the past, Herv has played with artists such as Venetian Snares, Shitmat, Jason Forrest, Duran Duran Duran, Dev/Null, Xanopticon, Hrvatski, Chevron, Aaron Spectre, Dj Scotch Egg, Ove-naxx, Doddodo, and Max Tundra.

    The Last Sound has been writing electronically sequenced music since 1992, and as The Last Sound since 1997...though he's been writing music for as long as he can remember, mostly influenced by Krautrock, Kosmische, Electronic(a), Prog, and Goth. From 2003 onwards, all music under the name The Last Sound comes from the same place - and that place is expanding. To date he has released 3 LPs on various labels, aswell as having released lots of tracks on compilations.

    'Fades' title track is from 2005 and the other three from 2007 complete the picture. 'Fades' is a bleak start. 'Fade To Day' is a sequel, with a happy ending. 'Deep End' makes the most of the resurrection but lost it's lyrics along the way, and 'Rest In Space' ties up the loose ends (with several scenes explaining what really happened earlier .. eventually heading for the heavens.

    Apart from kick samples and some synth on tracks 3 and 4, everything comes from reality.

    ‘Temporalities’ is a collection of attempts towards selectively hijacking the folding and unfolding of metronomes in order to dismantle BPM. In this e.p. the turtle is not given a head start, the barber has spilled his tea prior to the dissolving of the sugar because he did not know if he could shave himself and 100 Ligetis are unable to sync start counting together and so go after the turtle, past Adam and Eve’s zum-tot, until their frame is almost frozen while attempting to cross the pool with their candle still lit.

    Vybbtuan is simultaneously individual and part of the Tramba Audiovisual Conspiracy collective, a group of musicians and visual artists from Cyprus & around the world.

  • acp008: eN - the third chapter ep released

    'The 3rd Chapter EP' is the first release from eN, a budding laptop musician from London, currently studying Music Informatics in Brighton.
    Pairing the alluring qualities of atmospheric breaks and harsh edited Jungle rhythms with washed out synthetic soundscapes and deep bass, it walks the line between the tranquil and intense.

    A founding partner of the No-Test collective and the infamous Erisian Discharge night’s, eN has been an up and coming force to watch out for, for some time now.
    Creating his tunes in code using the venerable SuperCollider and already commending a sizeable back catalogue of jungle anthems and mashup breaks he's revered for his dance floor killas and live experimental laptop mashup’s, playing alongside acts such as Remarc, Doormouse, Drop The Lime, Mathhead, Tester, Debaser, Murderbot, Shitmat and Tim Exile.

    Killa stuff -- grab someone and shake them till they realize how wikkid this stuff is
