aAirial is the project of a music producer from Nancy, living in Paris, who has since 2008 released music on labels such as Breathe, Inrecs, Laridae, Kahvi, Rednetic, Sutemos, Touched and Mahorka. His music is influenced by classical romanticism and emotional electronica, a mix of emotions that define his style very well. A minimalist approach retains only the essentials, providing a better connection with the listener. The full-length "Wanderings" builds on and completes the musical...

PRELINGUAL MUSIC (Janne Nummela, Jan 2018) "I was in England. I stood on an embankment by a small heavily flowing canal. The speed of the water had to be 40 km/h. There seemed to be a cantilever bridge over the canal, moving along with the water, like a ferry. The bridge was coming down the canal towards where I stood. The ferryman was a voluminously red-haired woman. I yelled to her: "Can I get on the bridge? Is the bridge strong enough for my heaviness?” She said: "I guess it...

It might be described as anarcho-nihilistic feedback noise, anti-music, silly audial ramblings, ear-hatred, musical suicide or perhaps you might hear it as a lovely atmospheric feedback cushion to rest your head against when the world gets too close.

This mini-album is much more varied stylistically and aims to take you on a spacey trip through the artist's sound palette and various influences. As a result we have tracks that are as reminiscent to the likes of FSOL as they are to The Prodigy and as close to progressive house and breaks, as they are to IDM and classical ambient....

Iliaque is a project of one of the co-founders of Ziklibrenbib (a French project to promote Creative Commons (CC) music in library) from Normandy (France).

The Iliaque project, that has matured for several years now, seeks to exploit the potentialities of CC music and explores...

Centrul Isteric (FR: Centre Hystérique; EN: Hysterical Center) is the brainchild of Romanian A/V artist Gili Mocanu, better known for his abstract electronics project, Somnoroase Păsărele, which saw over a dozen recordings released on Baba Vanga (CZ), Anti-Everything (US), Czaszka (UK), OBS (RU), OTA and URUBU (PT).

Rainmaking is a weather modification ritual performed to invoke rain. On June 7th 2014 the weather in Pleven, Bulgaria not only self-invoked the rain, but conducted its own ritual as well. A ritual now known as dronemaking, a sound modification act invoking sustained tones, textural build-ups and blurry melodic progressions with voices sinking in, floating or leading the gathering.  And so a rain circle was formed, to transform the water in sound, which was transmitted through five individuals...

Despair is good. Despair can be the nadir of one life and the starting point of an ascent into another, better one.  ― Dean Koontz  Exactly two years after embracing us in the weightlessness of its raw noise ambient Deffektegg is reaching for our throats again. His chokehold is stronger and more intoxicating than ever. If so far Deffektegg’s music felt as if you are observing a dead body becoming one with the black waters of the sea, Nadir is like a subconscious self-immolation. For 50...

This is Renzo Peressi's third release as Ablunihil (all of them on Mahorka) and the best Abluonihil we've heard, being in the same time the most complex and sophisticated and most delicate and groovy. So download and listen. "I worked on this album with my feelings at that time, the sense that i was going into a face of different stages in my thinking, these long hours of some good and some really bad moments. All of this made the album possible. Some new and some old sounds where made and...

"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...

"Some listeners complain about my music that there is no any pregnant beat in the pieces. Sometimes a musicians mix up my stuff in order to make it more "groovy". Thus I've conceived this EP especially for such "beat lovers". Gentle rhythmical pulses are not implanted in the music but they constitute organic part of soft percussive tones. After all you can find that there can be many different beats in one sine wave; in other words there is always possibility to play a...

Yourai's third release on Mahorka (after his debut "Unicorn's Peacock EP" and the magnificent album "Shadhavar" ) is the result of the work, passion and love for music of quite some people involved. The single "My heart is so loud" preparation took more time than was expected, and even when everything was finished and arranged some issues shelved it for some months more, but, for sure, it is worth the wait! Now you have nearly one hour of music, most of which based...

"Eva" ("Ева" in cyrillic) is an album - collaboration between Petersburg's poet Eva Lifson and the group Daologic (already presented with two instrumental albums on Mahorka). Abstract trip-hop approaches, turning into glitch at times, form the perfect environment for Eva's metaphysical declamation - the first, technical layer of percieving the album. Covered underneath lies the whole spectrum of worldly interactions, expressed through a game in beads between the subtly...

Second Mahorka album of the lively electrocoustic improvisations of Dariusz Michalak and Arkadiusz Boguszewski's duo Moving Reef. 'FLIGHT' could be easily classified as conceptual album with all the Amazon forest, shamans, forest industries and other ambient voices, caught around the studio recording sessions, but Moving Reef insist on classifying it as just music, "treating voices as an instrument for creating a climate of the moment". 1.

Kanalen Pluh (Канален Плъх, meaning 'sewer rat' in Bulgarian) is an alter-ego of Nikola Marinov a.k.a. Wayab that inevitably surfaced from the deepest undergrounds of his already deep-dwelling music projects. Frequency and time domains provide the medium for the abstract language allowing expression of visions and views, feelings and emotions, ideas and critique, where words fail.

Usually a front cover reveals much of the music, but even the artwork concept here is kept a bit hidden in the booklet. Also the songs remain somewhat introverted. On "The Heart of Misery", starting with cafe talk on the background, it is as if she has several thoughts, but does not want to use them as a form of communication. Hidden is the message, while using comprehensible words, like a regret of a goodbye or a metaphor projected in a world where comfort can't be found. The song...

Acrossthevacuum is that project of Boyan Avramov (Teeth of Divine, Changing Perspectives, Loshi Petli) and Asen Santev (Trysth, Upyr) that just had to happen when the two got in touch and jamming together on different occassions and in different contexts. And they just had to have this very special Mahorka Acrossthevacuum session as a debut release.
