Oxvac “Partials” | on Pr0gramma Records

As part of the American electronic music collective Pr0gramma Oxvac 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.

Various Vegetables Radio #59 | MSH3005 Label Special

Yes! It‘s the first show in 2018. Yes! We just left behind a pretty bad year for all of us. And yes, we don‘t care at all. We rather intent to go on serving you rock solid tunes. This time with a little Bandcamp round up.

For this purpose we‘d like to take a closer ear to MSH3005 Records. A little Underground Techno, Ambient and IDM Label from Portland, Oregon. During the last year they managed to bring up a pretty impressive little catalouge of Tape and CD Releases. And after we just recently reviewed one of their EP‘s on our Website, they gave us the opportunity to check out their output from last year.

Aleksi Perälä | Simulation

Aleksi Perälä has been maneuvering under the radar for quite some time. The first time he got some attention from a wider audience was with his "Colundi Series". It was a tremendously big collection  of 13 Album length releases and somehow reminded of the time when Aphex Twin released his Analord Series. On the Colundi Series Aleksi Perälä was especially hyped by his intense approach to microtonal sequence composing. But it covered a wide range of sounds from Ambient to IDM to Oldschool Techno.

Simulation is Perälä's second release for the Clone Basement Series. And to me is special because it widens Peräläs horizon of sounds even more. First and foremost it's dynamics. As it is an energetic album on an emotional level it is by no means a result of the still ongoing "Loudness War". There is so much air between all these sounds that it feels like a relief that let's you inhale very deeply. In this sense it really feels like a ruminant Album. And Perälä follows this path by adding trancy elements with its most natural meaning. The floating melody sequences feel like they are soaked with energy of the elements that sourround us. The classic drum machine sequences feel more like wind than like banging Techno hits.

Simulation is heavily rooted in this 90's soundscape mixture of driven Techno and the Rephlex definition of IDM. It inevitably reminded me of Slag Boom Van Loon. A collaboration of Speedy-J and µ-Ziq from 1998. But without any doubt it has its very own quality.
