Description of Cane Non Fiction EP

The Funcken brothers Don and Roel, aka Funckarma, return to Creative Space under their experimental techno guise Cane, a medium for their more dance-oriented tracks, with 4x4 beats that constantly morph into alternating rhythmic forms, deep acid lines and electroid experiments. A collection of eight tracks across two pieces of vinyl, covering the various faces of their project, from deep techno excursions to high voltage electro beats, acid explosions and rhythmic juxtapositions, 'Non Fiction' is an EP of dancefloor devastating tech-tronica.

Title:Ten Letters (CD + DVD)
Label:Creative Space

Spyros Polychronopoulos aka Spyweirdos is arguably the best known contemporary Greek experimental electronic producer, with five previous albums to his name since 2003, who has collaborated with or been remixed by some of today's most important sound artists, including Alva Noto, Funckarma, Octex, Hecq, B. Fleischmann, Ollie Olsen, Traject, and Murcof. At present he is completing a PhD on acoustics and noise control. 'Ten Letters' is the follow up to last year's thematically-related 'Ten Numbers', itself an album based on field recordings with very tense parts. 'Ten Letters' is his most abstract work by far with distorted fields and high frequencies creating the melodic elements, taking the pair of "Ten" concept recordings on to a different level.

Also included is a DVD of 10 short films created to accompany the respective CD tracks, in the same mood as the audio with abstract layers and landscapes building geometrical shapes.

In parallel with 'Ten Numbers', 'Ten Letters' develops emotional sonic landscapes from a combination of minimal glitch electronica and acoustic instrumentation, eschewing Spyweirdos' previous flirtation with 4x4 beats and minimal techno, and instead focussing on depth of sound and atmosphere with smart transitions from acoustic to electronic sound collages. This marriage of acoustic and digital electronic takes place with extreme virtuosity, with the result being full of contradictions, bringing in mind the transition between day and night, hope and desperation, something obvious also through the videos which oscillate between black and white, light and darkness. The landscape is at times familiar, at others unknown and distant, a point where past and future meet... a most mature work, taking the listener through paths which lead sometimes to the sentimentality of electronica, and at others to the awe of academic electroacoustic music. Post-production by Murcof.

Artist:Parsons / Fragile
Title:Into The Night / Night Of The Hunter
Label:Creative Space
Four track EP of clear musical contrasts, united by an equally clear passion for the power of low end. A-side brings two doses of woofer-beating vibes from Planet Mu's Texan representative Parson, kicking off with 'Invasion', a superheavyweight block of dark rolling basslines, earth-shaking sub-tones and immense beats. 'Night Of The Hunter' steps onto more metallic and atmospheric ground, driven by a ramping-up bass pulse and intricate offbeat rhythms, while strange sci-fi effects and a disembodied voice intoning "the soul remains evil" create an effect not unlike Shackleton's 'Blood On My Hands' on performance enhancing drugs. On the flip, newcomer Fragile balances Parson's thunderous pressure with a pair of cuts which, although with a deeper and more melodic feel, are still straining under the weight of their low frequency oscillations. 'Infinity' uses delicate Burial-esque filtered voice samples, echoing flute loops, an insistent snare rattle and simple synth figures to decorate a subtly evocative tune which sweeps along on shuddering ultrabass waves. The kind of track made to bring a moment of jawdropping astonishment to the dance before the crowd plunges right back into the enveloping sublow waters. Last, 'Into The Night' glides in on 2-step rhythms and a retro Metalheadz feel in its use of timestretched and delayed female vocals, laying out a funky-style template for a futuristic dubstep roller characterised by a prowling bassline which drops in and out of the mix to create a dynamic dancefloor tune.
