amek030 Discordless "Nelocuit" (CS)

Whole nine years have passed since Marius Costache (Environments, FEBRA) last published music under the name Discordless. Now, with his brand new full-length 'Nelocuit' the project is officially resurrected. The music is once again torn between the extremes. The atmospheres are raw, the synths and bass lines are heavily re-amped through guitar gear giving the record the signature live but mean Marius Costache sound.

 'Nelocuit' crosses the fragile boundaries of all genres it's exploring. The harsher take on ambient music and the bold experimentalism of Discordless often infiltrate the realms of club music with high bpm beats and aggressive percussive textures. No better way to close the year but with a return of one of our favorite sonic maniacs. Discordless is back!


Order via Bandcamp.


Created at Studio148 by Marius Costache with Para (track 7), Fane (track 8), Șerb (track 4).

КПД-0 - creating the artwork

Two years ago in alliance with Ugly and Proud Records we did an epic effort to preserve a part of the legacy of Sofia noise-rock legend КПД-0. We co-released their discography 2xLP in a super limited run with a pretty special artwork. The music was also remastered to perfectly fit the format.

Now, for the first time ever we're revealing a part of the process behind the visuals of the record, done by the very hands of Kostadin Kokalanov & Dessislav Lilkov. 




See the full process here


You can still order the 2xLP here

КПД-Ø forever.

a-m_e|k p_73 A Night of Curious Transmissions @ Studio 1, BNR 06/10

Amek, Alarma Punk Jazz & Indioteque are three Sofia based booking collectives that have all been founded in 2008 and have somehow survived the Bulgarian underground for 10 years now. To celebrate a decade of shared struggle and joy we're combining efforts on this epic even in the legendary Studio 1 of the Bulgarian National Radio.

amek028 LATE - Color Drained (CS)

Sofia-based electronic producer LATE is back on Amek with ‘Color Drained’. His brand new, six-track EP and the successor to his 2017 debut ‘Blood’, sees him exploring an even darker and deeper side of his music. This results in a mostly mid-tempo based brooding sound, severely bit-crushed beats and percussions in league with spacious ambiances and futuristic sound design. If LATE’s very own meticulous worship of detail wasn’t enough, the EP also features an obscure and amorphic remix of the self-titled track, courtesy of Valance Drakes.



Order via Bandcamp.



All music written and produced by Emil Mitov.
Artwork by Georgi Sharov.



amek027 Nelegat - Intolerance (CS)

Nelegat exists in the underworld of Sofia’s electronic scene with sporadic but memorable appearance. ‘Intolerance’ is his debut release and it offers a painfully beautiful introduction into his concrete but hellish world. Nelegat’s invasive sound has a lot to do not only with raw techno and ambient but with pure digital noise as well. ‘Intolerance’ is an intense and permanent sonic build up. It’s structured by neurotic ambiance, convulsive noisescapes and climaxes in deceivingly hypnotic technoid offerings.


Order via Bandcamp.



Recorded and produced by Stephan Panev.

amek029 Omori - Isomorphism / Transparency (CS)

"Isomorphism / Transparencey" is the debut release of 18 years old artist Stoyan Yovchev - Omori. The record sees him abandoning his usual genre-crossing rhythmic music explorations to delve deep into the most paranoid and abstract territories of ambient, drone and noise. His sound is both multilayered and decaying in the most beautiful way. 

"Isomorphism / Transparency" is intense and otherworldy but still far from being sterile. Cosmic pulsations are deeply rooted in all the pieces. They exist in constant symbiosis with obscure rhythmic debris and transparent ambiances. It's a harsh but welcoming sonic structure and you're allowed inside not as a mere observer but a fully functioning part of the whole.


Order via Bandcamp.



All music & artwork by Stoyan Yovchev.
