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). 
Artwork by Alexandru Das.

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.
