In the three years since Marius Costache’s previous full-length album for Amek as Discordless, his usual menacing and anxiety-fuelled music has reached even further into the sonic extremes. We can blame it on the world we live in, on the year that just passed or on Costache’ very own distortion-worshipping approach to electronic music and his decades-worth of experience as a sound and recording engineer. Whichever you pick, ‘Fear On Every Side’ will remain a brutal take on contemporary noise music. It is demanding, disorienting and primal work but still captivating and sincere.
Every element found on the record contributes to a narrative that feels simultaneously vast and intimate. ‘Fear On Every Side’ can be perceived both from a first person perspective and as an overview of our decaying reality. The record doesn’t want you to overcome the sense of hopelessness, paranoia and tension it unfolds in front of you, but rather to plunge you deeper in this place of no way out.

"Modern Faith" is the third album of Romanian artist Silviu Badea under the moniker Contorsionist. Initially released in December 2013 and recorded live a month earlier through a multichannel guitar and bass amps setup, the music in the album is certainly something of its own kind. The raw, aggressive, yet highly textured and precise, sound allows for the complex and multilayered pieces of Contorsionist to transcend genres and label tags. "Modern Faith" is an experimental work that dares to tame chaos, chance and extreme volume in order to create its aural world.
The album was mixed and mastered by Marius Costache and was originally released as a free download on 148, an imprint closely tied to Studio 148, where he and a trusted circle of artists and sound specialists operate. ‘Modern Faith’ is now available in a physical format for the first time.
"Modern Faith" is the first release in our new tape series REamek, dedicated to reissuing obscure, forgotten, overlooked or simply sold out releases from our region.
