amek016 OOHS! - Tropic Of Cancel (CS)

OOHS! "Tropic Of Cancel"

Buy on tape from Bigcartel.

OOHS! recorded “Tropic Of Cancel” in the peak of summer. When neither day job nor temperatures allow you to properly breathe or exist. Thus the need to replace the urban haze with imaginary landscapes, preferably covered in scorching sand and near a big blue ocean. “Tropic Of Cancel” does not only sound as a heat-induced illusion, it was recorded in a similarly mysterious way.

Over the course of this six-track release, Maxim Mokdad and Margg Names swim in loops from ancient drum machines and mysterious samples recorded on the thin borderline between sleep and reality. These are the backbone of “Tropic Of Cancel” over which the duo carefully layers spacey and catchy guitars, warm synths and cloudy vocals. Numerous conversations over numerous cups of tea couldn't help us pigeonhole this record. Is this music primitive pop, kraut folk or lo-fi psychedelia? Or does it feature all of this, plus everything found in between? Who cares, just slam the door and drive or drift away.

Released on Dec 15, 2017 by Amek Collective on solid orange cassettes in hand-number edition of 50, with full-color printed two-panel j-card. 

This is amek016.

amek017 Slit In Slot - Birthmarks (CS)

Slit In Slot "Birthmarks" (CS)

“Birthmarks” by Slit In Slot is an emotional, harsh and considered work. A precise, even meticulous amalgam of field recordings, ambient and noise music, the release combines as much as it dissects all of its core components. The resulting music is sometimes drifting, sometimes scorching but always remaining humane. Beneath “Birthmarks” lies a strong and personal concept, a complex understanding of sound and an obsessive desire to transform the sonic ruins of our shared reality into new worlds.

amek019 Conjecture - My Body, Your Temple

Conjecture "My Body, Your Temple" CS

Conjecture is an electronic project, hailing from Greece and mainly known for his unique blend of rhythmic post-industrial, IDM and dark ambient music. For “My Body, Your Temple” Vasilis Angelopoulos has taken a slightly different path. The cassette-only EP offers five long-form pieces that explore the deepest realms of his sound. “My Body, Your Temple” is a menacing, gritty and cold affair, written and recorded exclusively on a hardware setup. This significantly contributes to the EP's harsh and claustrophobic ambiance.

“My Body, Your Temple” is out on November 18 on a limited run of 80 pro-dubbed, white tapes. The EP is co-released by Amek Collective (Bulgaria) and Raumklang Music (Germany).
