Long time ago, in the relatively small Black Sea coastal city of Varna, Julian Kalchev a.k.a. Virtually J became a kind of local pioneer and an inspiration for a whole generation, being the first to explore ways to compose and produce electronic music programmed, edited, played on a PC. He's been important part of the scene since then, contributing, for example, to the essential VA series "Kokaku" on Jisatsuken. With his last LP released 20 years ago (yes, in 2001) and after having...

The Kirbi (a play on letters from cybernetics) is a music project launched by Denis Fomenko in 1998. The project's sound is a combination of old school electronic music, ethnic rhythms and original melodies. One can hear a voice reciting poems or simply accompanying the rhythm as an additional instrument. This is the project's first release on mahorka.org (apart from contributing to a number of compilations) prepared exclusively for the occasion. The project's official website is thekirbi.com....

The project "Parchim", named after a small town lost somewhere on the map of Eastern Germany, is from the Russian city Rostov-on-Don. "Parchim" was created in 2008 to transmit dictaphone experiments, investigations of the presence of the gods in the world of people, the memory of passed generations and mythological poeticizing of reality. The main trends of the project are neomythological ego, poetry of the setting sun, archetypical avenues of being, somnambulistic dreams...

"On The Hangar of Spaceship Earth" is the 3rd full-length album by Esa Ruoho, an ambient-drone artist hailing from Kontula, Eastern-Helsinki, Finland. While Esa might be more known via his other moniker, Lackluster, we're sure you agree that this is a different take, a departure from the more melodic material released as Lackluster. What is a Spaceship Earth? R. Buckminster Fuller wrote and published a book called "Operation Manual for Spaceship Earth" back in 1968. Bucky...

Baba llaga are: Miguel A. García (xedh, valvula antirretorno), Raul Dominguez (armadillo concreto), Daniel Llaria (bujero) and Itziar Markiegi (teta fx). They gathered together to do some fine experimental/industrial improvised sound with a lot of emphasis on the visual aspect of the performance when they play live. It's not the 'man with a laptop' outfit, it's a real, living band. Their first release "El ultimo viaje de Vasilissa" ("The last travel of Vasilissa") is...

“Walking into a mosque one enters into the space of a very strong idea. Although these architectures reflect the human universe of the believers, the principles of their construction obey the laws of the creator of the universe. Walking in a valley, into cave or forest presents an equally strong idea, if one listens carefully. The natural world is also created by an unknown, undefinable creator. The creator, singular or plural, incarnate in the creation of spaces like valleys and forests and...

"Fame is an Addiction" sounds like a cassette you found while walking on the beach, half burried in the sand, case slightly warped by the heat of the sun, little pebbles and bits of seashells embedded inside, tape loose and almost melted. You rescue it, clean it up, spool it in, and when you play it you discover that the noise of the sea waves somehow got imprinted onto it and melded with the music. Every tune is deep within its own comfortable bed of noise, each sound treading...

shadhavar, an album written, composed and performed by yourai represents his first multitrack record made exlusively for mahorka. „again, refusing to ask the electronic machines for help, yourai sets his lands of vocal expressions between rhythm pleasure and raw experimantation, influenced by throat singers, freak hop and holy minimalism. the concept of shadhavar is coded in a story hidden in the verses of inunderstandable lyrics and vocal audio soundscapes. it is a drawing of a specific...

Through the project ANTERAKS the voices of INNOCENT BUT GUILTY (France) and UBURGRUND (Romania) go beyond what the eyes cannot reach. The two speakers of visions met in the vaporous virtual realm and decided to melt their different tongues and challenge an unequal syncretism of analogue and digital equipment.

MUSIC FOR PEOPLE WITH NO WORK, FAMILY OR INTERNET "A collection of pieces from the last 10 years gathered around the idea of listening as a state of trance. Listening without distraction, without measuring time, without hurry. Clearing the mind, a bit of melancholy, an endless loop, a hovering thought, urban meditation somewhere in the suburbs. Instead of TV, instead of a smartphone: "I have to do something, I have to be somewhere". Slow listening, room for feelings."...

Remell is a new project of Venezuella's Renzo Peressi. It's sound is quite far from his other works, especially the ones released on mahorka (stuff as Abluonihil, Mendigo). It's 4 melodic electronica compositions. Hope you'll enjoy this another side of Renzo. We do.

A hot, humid, tropical lagoon. This imagery could not escape us when we first got to hear at the peak of this year's summertide what was to become 4t Thieves's brand new EP titled "The Digital Lagoon". And it is not just the title and the less or more noticable sound bits there. The water, the humidity, the heat, the trees and the rain gradually building up is really what the music here is intentionally the official soundtrack to. With the perfect closing track that "Ever...

Fifteen years after the landmark Mahorka compilation "Music For Elevators vol.1" and six years after the latest volume 4, for the occassion of Netlabel Day 2017, we released "Music For Elevators vol.5 (Part 1)". As that title suggested, we were to have more than one album for the fifth volume of our landmark compilation, which we blame on the number of years between the last installment and the moment the new volume felt ripe and right to start materialising and the number...

Brainquake is Marc, originating from the mail-art/tape-art scene in the late eighties and composing and collecting sounds since then under this moniker and few others. Ranging from ambient, soundcollages to electro, dark wave, from noise to industrial or even poplike tunes embedded in electronics or, the way he himself labels his sounds on recent releases, “endzeit emotronica”, the music of Brainquake is allways lengthy, strong in build-up and quite often heavily emotional.
