ame014 LATE - BLOOD (CS)

"BLOOD" comes straight from the urban dungeons of Sofia, Bulgaria. It features six UK bass music-influenced tracks. LATE hasn't spared us the deep lows, bit-crushed beats and isolationist atmospheres. Broken sound design artifacts and violent breaks manage to glue all of his visions in a pitch black and punchy mix of experimental bass music. If that's not enough, we have local techno duo RoboKnob with a massive remix of the self-titled piece.


Out June 20.


Limited to 50 copies.
Get it from Bigcartel and stream it everywhere (Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp).

amek013 Smellicaт - Dearest 2xCS

Dearest is a double tape release featuring music made by low-key sad boy smellycaт in the past four years. Its sound will comfort you when your eyes are already hurting from staring at that ancient CRT TV. It's music playing in the back of your head when you're sick of trying to beat Crash Bandicoot on PSX or need something to wipe the Final Fantasy VII OST out of your brain when you fall asleep. Divided in four parts, which are as short-lived as they can get, Dearest is like a news feed of profound indifference, soaked with neon anime colors, lo-fi vaporwave vibes, Tumblr soft porn or cats, cats, cats.
Limited to 35 copies.
Get it from Bigcartel.
Stream it on Spotify: http://sptfy.com/1osL



This is amek013.

Press quotes:

"That is indeed the sound of one sad-boy. I am probably not allowed to say but grow up and you'll get over it; hopefully." ~ Vital Weekly 
"The album possesses a loose, emotional consistency to it akin to getting to know someone new." ~ Beach Sloth
"Melancholy vibes sliced with a playful whimsy. Smellycaт is a wise creature." ~ lost in a sea of sound

Amek Catalog on Spotify

We've always had a heart for physical editions, especially in limited runs and we still believe they help us make experiencing music a more special gesture. However, we realize the music we put out has the potential to be enjoyed by more than the 35 people who managed to score a tape or the 200 people who could afford a vinyl.

That's why we've uploaded our catalog on Spotify. It'll soon reach other services as well. Pick whatever service suits you. We'll always recommend using the Bandcamp pages of our artists or partners who co-release the digitals there, and we'll always have releases like Gokkun's Love Hits, which will never be digitalized by us.

Below is a mix we modestly called Amek Collective Essentials. Enjoy.
