Faex Optim is an electronic musician from Edinburgh, UK, whose musical style frequently portrays a warm, ambient texture with overtones of magical chords and melody. Coming originally from a math/post-rock background (with sporadic incursions in electronica), he started producing electronic music in earnest in early 2014. His two EPs released the following year got exceptional critical acclaim and support, notably appearing on Igloo Magazine's Best of 2015.  4T Thieves has been putting out...

4T Thieves has been putting out beautiful electronic music since the early demoscene days and the dawn of the netlabel scene and also is the main man behind the netlabel-cult Kahvi Collective. He has not stopped producing music throughout the years since, ever advancing his sound and exploring newer and newer horizons, and has had releases on, besides Kahvi, most of the scene-defining netlabels - Monotonik, Miasmah, Enough Records, Mahorka and others. 2016 saw the release of his landmark CD...

"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...

Nik (4T Thieves) has been putting out beautiful electronic music under the artist name 4T Thieves scince the early demoscene days. Nik also, quite notably, has been the manager of Kahvi Collective since 2001 (after taking over from Vae after he threatened to remove the site from the web 'due to lack of time'). Since then Kahvi.org has gone from strength to strength, being featured in national press, on BBC World, and has definitely arrived at 'cult' status (apparently long time ago already)....

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 anticipation of and as a warm-up for the Netlabel Day 2015 we present to you a fantastic mashup of Mahorka classics, done by our friend 4T Thieves from Kahvi Collective. Bear in mind that this is not your usual mix of tracks following each other. You do have the seamless transitions, but one track playing at a time is a very rare occassion and, instead, two or three tracks are playing simultaneously throughout most of the set, with some of them tracks fading out just to pop up again (and...

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...

It is the outcome of a straight, primordial and creative journey, where natural and artificial sounds, human and machine noises, memories from the past and visions of the future overlap, and all these elements are blended in a meditative and hypnotic flux of sounds.

With this project Renzo usually concentrates on more microsoundish, glitchy atmospheres and pulses, creating an industrial/digital techno/ambient crossover.

These amalgamations point towards tones of an almost uncertain origin and are very much characterized by a certain place in time. His debut album 'Plum God' represents a transitory state.

"The underwater fires" is a conceptual EP, revolving all around Autonomaton's love for the underwater life and rivers, seas, oceans and aquariums. That's a passion shared with the Mahorka boss Ivo Petrov, so you can guess that this release has been long time coming. In the tracks one can hear actual sounds from real fish (not mammals) captured and presented in very experimental ways. All tunes were produced on a computer but analogue equipment such as a Korg and a 303 machine were...

We can view B CX' first album as consisting of three fractions: The first one is the big introduction, very dubstep burdened, but in actual fact 'dubstep' is only the frame that emphasizes the real deep musical idea. Yet the core of the LP is the second part: "Sulamith". The large - almost 19 minutes long - track deals with the terror during the Third Reich. Starting with a sample of an authentic exorcism ("A.M.") followed by his little sister's blurred voice ("Little...

The music in "Source Vive", as always with the instrumental/electronic collective from St. Petersburg, Russia, comes from things the project members stumble upon, dive in, jump on or just find themselves surrounded by. "Harmony and meditation, sleep and thinking, movement and perception". Yet another convergent set of inspirations - yet another downtempo chillout electronica journey happening through convergent set of space and time frames. For "Source Vive"...

"Theatre Of Shadows", the latest addition to the Russian project DaoLogic's discography, is a journey through downtempo and ambient with lots of live acoustic instruments and creative sampling. Shadows of traditional motives from here and there, gospel voices and field recordings work together to shape the stage for the band's awesome trippy chillout show.

"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...

Daologic is an instrumental/electronic project from St. Petersburg, Russia. Before unification in Daologic, the musicians, together and separately, were involved in the projects: soundscript33'', kolibri, stanislavsky, sohm project and others. The music they do when they are Daologic comes from everything that surrounds them and brings inspiration. Think of harmony and meditation, sleep and thinking, movement and perception.

'UP' is the second Daologic album on Mahorka and hopefully not the last. This time they deliver a more chill and ambienty sound and though the drums are still there they are much more subtle. "It's all about how to lose your weight. I mean at all. When you have no weight, you go up. No wings to work with, no wings to catch. Just go up and do what you want. That becomes your destiny and your doom - it depends on what you think about it." 1. UP 2. Step by step 3. Breathing chamber 4. O2...

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...

“We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.” ― William James  Deffektegg is a cold hand reaching through the black and morphing surface of the sea, which is exactly where Weightless emerged from. Mostly built on deep and thick drones, but sometimes crushed by distortion and swallowed in the abrasive and distant voices of drowned souls, Weightless is hypnotizing like the songs of hundred sirens, but carries endless grief for all lives, forever lost...

Recorded in the day-offs while in residency with international theatre company Motus for their new spectacle, "Ruins" comes to the listeners as a depth in between emotions and rationality. The only sound sources used in the composition of the work are the bass guitar and the transverse flute, with the additional importance of live electronics and digital signal processing in the sound design and making of the unique texture that characterises Cecchitelli's discography.

EMERGE is inspired by the minimalist traditions of experimentalism and non-academic noise music, focusing on generating sound structures intended to make atmospheres emerge that are open to each listener’s own interpretation. The choice of sound sources used is usually very limited. In most cases only rudiments of the original sounds are recognizable due to various treatments. EMERGE also uses and recycles raw material from a variety of artists/musicians.  For this special live collaboration...

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."...

The music of Encased in Amber tells it's stories through an intricate mesh of melodies and texture. Described as downtempo, ambient, and dreamy, Encased in Amber puts forth the concept that each time a piece of music is written it crystallizes what was felt and processed in that moment of time, like a fossil caught in amber.  The 'Parallel Worlds' project is intended as an audio-visual experience. The artwork of Jeroen Advocaat sets the scene with themes of distance, longing, and the...

"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...

"Fabien Robbe and myself have been involved in several projects together since 2015, but this is our formal debut as a duo. It began as good, clean fun. Fabien piled up gear in his van and drove all the way from Brittany to my blessed shack in the suburbs of Paris, by then home of Improvising Beings. We assembled a monster electronic studio for a few days. I will now list the instruments to get rid of that matter: ARP 2600, ARP Sequencer, EMS Synthi E, Farfisa VIP 233, Kurzweil K-2500,...

“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...
