Sullen Kolpakopf keeps pressing with his original dark, heavy and a bit claustrophobic ambient. Kolpakopf’s «Escapism» reveals not a final point for escapist but the process of reaching that point.
Saturnine soundscapes, catacombs pathways, illegible voices through hum and noises and unceasing mental stress. Black-and-white vision, walking on the edge, electric lights instead of sun and rare scrappy images of escapist relaxation at the peak of psychic burnout.

In his new work «Orbiter» Xalm Retribution adds some new colours to his usual dark ambient palette, and all these colours are cold, very cold. Staying inside classic dark ambient borders, Xalm Retribution managed to utilize some elements typical to work of Massimo Magrini and late Akifumi Nakajima.
Now technogenous, inanimate, artificial sounds fill his vibrant soundscapes. In the waves of slow low-frequency pulsations, you can no longer find any industrial noises or guitar drones or something else you are used to find in straight dark ambient works. There are only electrical circuits’ music, singing induction coils, oxidized pins’ staccatos and conducting switches in the finally abandoned Solaris station. Shadows run their fingers over strings of crackling electrical wiring. Faulty сlimatic plants’ din fills dark corridors. Obscurity and desolation…

In Flangeri’s new work «Joy Of Restriction» melancholic and meditative improvisations are embodied of vibrant drones that look like river waves bringing myriads of flecks to the shore where you sit. Like the river waves, these drones never hasten and slowly reach their climax before calming down in multiple resonances. Covertly appearing behind the resonances, even and simple melody easily develops from the echoes of colliding drones, getting drown in their pulsatings. Growing in strength, the melody flies over waves of drones of various tonality and length. Reaching the peak in the second half of the more than 35 minutes long piece, the melody – or a pack of endlessly repeated melodies’ fragments – slowly dissolves in drones’ rhythmed breathing, and as the drones start to fade, they let the melody to fade with them as well.
