TENTATIVAS FRUSTRADAS (Failed Attempts), Sept. 18th, 2021 "Sometimes you get bored with yourself and, simply, want to get rid of your old life. In pandemic times, such thing is easily possible when you feel in such a bore in lockdown, in isolation. Per Scelstak came into existence when George Christian felt disgust with himself and, also, with the way virtuality has become something exploitative in his life. In fact, Per was born only as a pseudonym when he sent a concert piece for a...

A celebration of slow, focused listening. Juxtaposition of cyclical, seeping melodies. The paint on the library walls begin to drip, to melt away, as new forms emerge in your perception. An impressive immensity. Familiar contours take flight, melding into a singularity. A conversation heard in the distance. A view of yourself asleep in bed. The singing voices now pull you back despite any resistance. Through the window. "Recorded on my birthday in 2019, this is my first release that relies...

1: Common quantum physicists' interpretation and statement is that there is no such thing as matter and what we all call matter, in reality is energy. The whole universe is energy, frequencies, vibrations. What we observe is energy vibrations that are slowed down to a level that is perceivable by our senses and sensors. It all exists thanks to forces which make particles quiver and yet keep the whole system together. Many spiritual or metaphysical things in essence have always been just physics...

"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...

When I first started I was absolutely mortified at how wasteful we are in this country and likely most of the developed world. There is so much food waste (tins, dried goods that get thrown away even though they are perfectly fine). I eat what I think is OKay. Me and others also find gold, silver, rolex watches etc. I found a bottle of whiskey valued at 1400 pounds....

"7 Jahre vor der Gegenwart" invites you to take a ride on an emotional rollercoaster with many ups and downs, epic moments, dark and light sides. From dark ambient and broken structures to technoid rhythms and sequences - everything that can happen within...

“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...

“This album is the first work I’ve done in 2019 and also part of a series of instrumental works that reflect upon absence in different ways, in a pentalogy. All of them expresses what I felt after the latest political misfortunes in my country (Brazil) and overall social-political state of mind in the world. In “Insomniac Dreams” - the absence of rest and sleep to convey life in its existence. In “Antimanicomial” - the absence of sanity in its helplessness in a political system that...

Music from and inspired by the short movie "Dead weather". "Dead weather" is the first short movie of the internationally rising filmmaker Radoslav Radoslavov. Radoslav and Dusted Wax Kingdom's very own Dimitar 'VPD' Kalinov got in touch regarding the project while the movie was still on the script stage and VPD recorded a series of tracks, mostly variations/takes on same theme ingredients, specifically for "Dead Weather". It ended up with few of the scenes...

"Suoni Olofonici" is the new realization of Strepitvsitvs and the long-awaited and discussed debut release on Mahorka for the duo. The album is meant to be a sort of inner self-reflection as well as a very personal study about environmental connections between people and places. The focus is set on the Montello hill, near the Piave river, pretty close to their hometown. It's a really peculiar site, where nature, history, legends, and mysteries are all mixed up together in a unique...

The release comprises of 3 compositions that revolve around the deafening and conflicting relationship that man has with nature, the dominant force and protagonist of our doings. The sounds shine through and envelope our daily lives totally, in a deafening, chaotic way. White as the color,...

"This album is a long-standing exploration of the juxtaposition between physical presence and mental boundaries that emerged during the creative process. Our bodies are matter physically present in the present reality, but our psychic capacities can be distanced, reaching parallel inter-temporal spaces. They aim at creating internal and external associative representations between presence - happening - reflection directed at the senses. The immediate primal feeling in one present is lost...

"I’ve let this sink in for several weeks, and I’m glad I did. One road-trip up the Central Coast, several commutes to and from work, a recent 5-hr flight from the West and East coasts, and sporadic listenings when the time was just right—and one thing is certain: 4T Thieves’ (aka Kahvi head hauntologist) gives a nod to the Sandison and Eoin brothers in a very complimentary way.

In 2019, Thomas Park suggested to work with Mahorka on a new project, to use his generative composition techniques coded in Python to remix one or more releases. Label curator Ivo Petrov furnished Thomas with a set of tracks from the early Mahorka catalog [2001-2006], selected specifically for the purpose at hand. Using his Python tools, Thomas extracted and edited fragments/loops from the tracks and created different sets of iterations.The results were quite magical to Thomas. He felt that...

Vossen "V" is a beatmaker and does beats. It all starts not about the songs but about the beats. All his works begin with samples in the pure hiphop tradition. V defines his music as progressive hiphop, post hiphop, ambient noisy hiphop. He performs alone or integrates avant-garde formations for improvised live performances. V's 4th album and debut on Mahorka "23.56.04" was recorded during the same creative process from which "Cosmic Archeology", his 3rd...

xDEx is a project and main scene pseudonym of Victor Prodanov. Lately, the constant accelerating societal decay and de-stricturation, the alienating aspects of the globalisation processes and the so called “common thought” became, by their unavoidability and omnipresence, a field of inspiration and cynicism for this project. Victor's longstanding fascination with DIY digital and analog electronics has put out a solid emprunt over his sound. The release “PANTA RHEI” is his first and...

Pronoia (n.) – The belief that the universe is conspiring in your favour. «Pronoia is the positive counterpart of paranoia. It is the delusion that others think well of one. Actions and the products of one's efforts are thought to be well received and praised by others. Mere acquaintances are thought to be close friends; politeness and the exchange of pleasantries are taken as expressions of deep attachment and the promise of future support. Pronoia appears rooted in the social complexity...
