amex001 XI-N "Pulsar" CS

"Pulsar" by Turkmenistan-born audio visual artist XI-N is the first release in our brand new tape series EXPERIENCE. Its aim is to preserve and present live recordings captured during Amek Collective events. "Pulsar" is a drifting exploration of generative music. Tense build ups and fragile ambience structure a 30 min long piece divided into two movements where rhythmic figures intertwine with slowly unfolding atmospheres.

These will not be available for distribution and can be only purchased at our Bandcamp store or during events as all proceeds will be used to fund future events.

Music by Dovlet Shyhmyradov, performed live at Fabrika Avtonomia, Sofia on February 3, 2019.
Mastered by Marius Costache (148 Studio, Bucharest).

amek036 Non Photo Blue "Crawling Into Tomorrow" CS

‘Crawling Into Tomorrow’ is the first solo album of Daniel Donchov (Leaver) under the name Non Photo Blue. It sees him experimenting with synth-centered, beatless and free-form music after years of handling the guitar or bass in bands like Sofia’s Expectations. His debut is comfortably spanning over six drone ambient autobiographical snapshots. ‘Crawling Into Tomorrow’ is like a long bike ride somewhere in the North, like a delayed flight to an unknown city and is as sincere as the struggle to fight your new home without losing touch with all memories, people and places that made you who you are.

Limited to 50 copies.

We closely followed Daniel’s process during the creation of this album. It coincided with the beginning of his new life some 2000 kms away from everything he knew for over 30 years. We saw colors been carefully layered on his fragile sonic sketches. The bits become pieces, the pieces became fragments of the world of a very observant person and a songwriter with an ear for delicate melodies distributed like a puzzle of synth voices. The final touches were done by Bucharest-based producer Marius Costache who gave Non Photo Blue’s misty soundscapes a needed push to endure the Northern winds, no matter how harsh they might become.
