Tihomir Zdjelarević – Hopefully we will see
"With a progressive blend of uncanny melodies and warping harmonics, the Baikonur EP feels almost like a computer data process that somehow got itself locked into techno rhythms. The organic timbre even lies oddly between raw synthesis and heavily processed acoustics. These binaries ultimately balance but provide a mysticism that uniquely destabilizes the listen. Particularly Baikonur and The Gate exemplify this eccentric mix of evolving musicality and an odd sense that it’s all just data being filtered through melodious substructures."
Mindcolormusic's one man label mastermind DJ mnvr has been pretty busy releasing wonderful little mindbending braindance gems since last year. Sympathetically he skips back and forth between Compilations, EPs and Split-Eps on which he relies less on proven formats than on his sense of coherent track compilations. And so - behind the superstructure of Braindance, Acid and IDM - his publications always tell a flush story beyond genre boundaries.
The fact that we are choosing the aux4410 from these short stories is, of course, due to the fact that Veglord Vodor L Zeck contributes his part on the knobs here. But together with Quadratschulz, Bromic, Sonornote, Bovaflux and a few others, it creates a wonderful something of nervous drum shuffle, sprinting acid lines and hovering disharmonic megarave emotions.
May the end of this story remain open for a long, long time!
Once upon a time in a distant galaxy called the 90s, a group of young rebels fought against the reign of Stanza-Refrain-Bridge to practice the forbidden practices of Acid. Nearly thirty light years later, methods long believed to blossom flourish again on planets such as Acid Waxa, Midievil, Mechatronica, Central.Processing.Unit. and Vortex Traks. We have set out on a Journey to give these Brotherhoods a voice. May the Acid be with you!

As part of the American electronic music collective Pr0grammaOxvac has been releasing his music since about 2015.
On his latest release "Partials" he clearly demonstrates references to abstract rhythm constructs as they were cited by greats like Autechre in the Warp era . However, he neither tries to make himself comfortable in homage nor in practising some kind of beatmashing-competition but adds a very personal coloring. Which, in its warmth, happily stands out from the cold, mathematical IDM sound. The warm analog origin of the modular system responsible for most of the synth sequences is clearly audible and the background noise that accompanies us throughout the whole album sets itself like a little piece of meadow under the tracks so that the organic melodies may writhe on it. The beat structures also seem to hover between complex patterns and a wide-breathing 4/4 bass drum.
So yet again another happy accident to find such beautiful electronic music from the U.S.of A. From this side of the Atlantic's perspective I can just say it's nice that you're no longer necessarily get overpowered by EDM-Metal-Dubstep, but can also lift the actual treasures (which have always been there!). At least on platforms like Bandcamp and Co.
