Type … FLAC Lossless

«With the same illusion [as Timeless], Parallel is more refined. It sends you to another world with divers mood. You get also more images on your mind and can create your own.»
— Cédric Elisabeth

Refined is not the only word to define the work. Smooth, relaxing, melahcholic, light, deep, transparent, natural, perfect, fluent, subtle, elegant – dozens of words are here to decribe emotions when «Sans Titre» changes «Excellence» or when «Grandiosa» quietly comes to its piercing, fluttering apogee and makes way to calm and contemplative «Mute». If you liked «Timeless», you will fall in love with «Parallel». Just switch it on…

Kolpakopf – «Ink»

Kolpakopf - «Ink»Cat.# … DNA 189
Release Date … 01.03.2017
Genre … Dark Ambient, Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC

Sometimes Kolpakopf impresses with sound experiments but this time he just put you in thick boiling mass of drones where dark ambient soundscapes, distorted bells ringing, dissonant pipe organ and piano, and contorted chants sink and float. Echo-like splashes of repetitive drones, hysterical high-frequency loops, frantic hums’ spasmodic pulsations can’t hide unstable layered constructions made of various sound materials with imperative atonal combinations. On the background of local peaks of sound pressure, each piece increases intensity and progress eventually to emphatic apogee before emotional discharge in catatonic final. And there you find Kolpakopf’s usual anxiety, personal phobias initialization, and isolationist mood – as always though.

Recorded in 2016.

  1. Kolpakopf – Untitled (16:32)
  2. Kolpakopf – Untitled (19:09)

EugeneKha & Microbit Project – «Crossings»

EugeneKha & Microbit Project - «Crossings»Cat.# … DNA 187
Release Date … 27.12.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient, Drone Ambient
Type … FLAC

«Crossings» is more than a collage of unreleased and already released tracks and drafts created in 2005-2010 under EugeneKha and Microbit Project.

It’s an attempt to rethink and to organize last experiences in a combination of various (and maybe opposite) approaches. This combination converts to «Crossings», an audio reflection of real and surreal worlds, a new form, a new experience with a new sound.

Kolpakopf – «Escapism»

Kolpakopf - «Escapism»Cat.# … DNA 186
Release Date … 09.11.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC

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.

Recorded in 2016.

Tracklisting:

  1. Kolpakopf – I (11:48)
  2. Kolpakopf – II (15:40)
  3. Kolpakopf – III (13:42)

Xalm Retribution – «Orbiter»

Xalm Retribution - «Orbiter»Cat.# … DNA 184
Release Date … 01.09.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC

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…

Tracklisting:

  1. Xalm Retribution – Path (07:47)
  2. Xalm Retribution – Noise (03:51)
  3. Xalm Retribution – Way (08:08)

Flangeri – «Joy Of Restriction»

Flangeri - «Joy Of Restriction»Cat.# … DNA 183
Release Date … 12.07.2016
Genre … Drone
Type … FLAC

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.

  1. Flangeri – Joy Of Restriction (35:42)

Kolpakopf – «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death»

Kolpakopf - «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death»Cat.# … DNA 182
Release Date … 26.05.2016
Genre … Dark Ambient
Type … FLAC

It’s Kolpakopf again, and again his work touch on the subject of death. And again the work is inspired by literature, and again Kolpakopf get inspired by mystical Jorge Luis Borges.

In «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death» philosophical reflections about significance of death in the human perception metamorphose in chaotic waves of low-frequency noise swamping lifeless and deliberately minimalistic sound caverns. Arised there and sewn together in an anxious canvas, consonances, pieces of phrases and similar sets of anthropogenic sounds slowly emerge into a wall of noise and then disjoin at the peak of their intensity. Later they appear again in another form to arise and to fall eventually.

It looks like those changes in situations and in points of view in Jorge Luis Borges’ stories wherein half-words and allusions spawn layers of implication and force to overinterpret probable development of the action. And doubtless it force to continue author’s fantasies in someone’s own way. As Borges’ stories, Kolpakopf’s «Indivisible Triplicity Of Death» offers a few of detailed patterns and provoke to interpret them before the piece develops enough to show author’s original idea.

Recorded in 2015.

System Morgue & iatemyself – «Split»

System Morgue & iatemyself - «Split»Cat.# … DNA 181
Release Date … 16.05.2016
Genre … Drone, Noise
Type … FLAC

Here is next System Morgue’s return to DNA Production, this time as a split work shared with another Moscow-based project iatemyself.

In his two-tracks part System Morgue fills up air with guitar drones where vibrating, shivering consonances mix with heavy breathing pulsations, and fragmentary sonic images comprise a sickly acoustic illusion occasionally teared by sound upsurges of distorted guitar neurasthenia. Sometimes it looks like a drift towards areas of guitar noise but in fact it happens in iatemyself’s three-tracks part where jumble of electrical interferences and distorted sounds boils up. This dense and physically perceived sonic cloud presses ears with low-frequency waves while high-frequency bursts split and lumps together this uneasy acoustic mass making visible its parts and then stepping back for a moment to let see the whole panorama of enraged sonic elements.

Tracklisting:

  1. System Morgue – Mourir de ne pas mourir (10:50)
  2. System Morgue – Jours de pluie (14:11)
  3. iatemyself – Guess I’ve Been There Before (03:07)
  4. iatemyself – Syntony (11:56)
  5. iatemyself – Whotoldyouthat (05:49)
