Made by and featuring none other than strictly human sounds, warped and deconstructed until it falls in that uncanny valley of dissociative humanism. Jan Jelinek’s latest album ‘Zwischen’ can be considered an exercise in learning to find enjoyment and/or contentment in the intellectual and physical limitations of the human mind and body.
A mesmeric trip down memory lane, this one will immerse you in a world of stunning textural pieces, extended dub stretches and further leftfield tribal-like oddities; the ideal fit to the strange atmosphere of wintery days in the countryside.

Since debuting two years ago Acting Press has become one of the most talked about record labels in the underground realm. Today we are happy to bring you a new mix from label co-founder C3D-E, bringing a taste of his deeper-than-deep record collection with a mix which moves on the trippy-sleazy-pumping ’90s axis.
Set to drop tomorrow via Marco Gallerani’s Hell Yeah Recordings Kito Jempere’s ‘Sea Monster’ is a refreshing communion of sorts, bridging the gap between electronic, pop and house in one lush and multi-hued microcosm of delectable tempos and rhythms.

If you’ve heard Basses Terres’ excellent debut EP for BFDM, ‘A Darker Rain’, you’ve certainly noticed his lean for finespun atmospherics and full-on cinematic deep audio-scenarios.
