Out Now! dziadosz/mreńca – mirage (reworks)

Next we welcome Polish artists Bartosz Dziadosz and Tomasz Mreńca with Mirage, which is a reissue and adaptation from a release on Taalem last year. The album includes artwork by Peter Nejedly and the album opens with interpretations of the original Modern Classical composition by SpheruleusSven Laux and Giulio Aldinucci. The remastered version of Mirage then closes out this record, with the dark and mysterious listening experience recalling the work of The Frozen Vaults, Erik Skodvin or Max Richter.

This album was announced to our mailing list last weekend and there are but a few copies left at the time of writing. You can listen to the album in full by hitting play above or clicking the link below, where you can purchase a physical or digital version.

press release
Bartosz Dziadosz and Tomasz Mreńca are friends and artists from Poland. They started collaborating on musical projects a few years ago, most notably as part of modern classical group The Frozen Vaults which also include Harry Towell, Yuki Murata and Dave Dhonau. This group saw a far flung collaboration with locations including the United Kingdom, Japan as well as Poland and recordings shared over great distance as the project developed.

In ‘Mirage’ and also the recent ‘Black Lake’, the project sees Bartosz and Tomasz collaborate closer to home. Bartosz records solo material as Pleq and works with sound as part of the theatre whereas Tomasz generates sounds on analog synthesisers and violin. Mirage was originally released as a 3 inch CDr via Belgian label Taâlem last year and we’re pleased to present this piece in its remastered state, alongside reworks and interpretations from Spheruleus, Sven Laux and Giulio Aldinucci. Each of these renowned composers were invited to portray the dark, mysterious passages of Mirage in a different light, making for an album experience rather than a simple reissue with ‘remixes’.

Spheruleus selected a looping section of the original strings in a brooding, dramatic piece steeped in tape decay, Sven Laux has focused more on the timbral quality of the strings whereas Giulio Aldinucci sculpts the piece into a dynamic drone which reaches a subtly noise shrouded crescendo. The reworks are followed by the original, in all its glory.

We’re informed that Mirage was inspired by Witold Lutosławski as Bartosz and Tomasz had listened to his work together.
When they set about composing Mirage, they wanted to create this in their image and since they are so used to each other’s company, they did not need to labour into plans and concepts. Instead, the music flowed freely. The concept became the action of creating itself, in a way which etches a description of the artists themselves, for the listener to decode.

Out Now! Sven Laux – Schachmatt

This morning we’ve released the new album by Sven Laux who recently featured in the production of The Road Home. Sven’s work is a stately Modern Classcial suite, full of immersive strings and contemporary Ambient sounds.

Sven has released with labels such as Dronarivm and Sleep Is Commercial and this beautiful album should appeal to those who enjoy A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Hans Zimmer or Max Richter. Since releasing to our label subscribers last week, this release has absolutely flown out with nearly all copies going before it’s even officially released! Fortunately Sven will soon have some copies available via his Bandcamp page and you’ll be able to purchase a digital version from there or with us.

You can listen to a preview of the album by using the Soundcloud player below or grab one of the remaining copies or a digital version by clicking the bandcamp player or link below.

This went to out to our mailing list last weekend and at time of writing, we’ve got 3 copies left. To find out more, you can click the link below or on the image above to listen. To avoid missing out on future releases, you can join our mailing list HERE

press release

“Sven Laux is a German artist residing in Berlin, a city with a rich heritage in minimalism and modern composition. Sven isn’t new to this scene having started creating electronic music in 2003, with material released through labels such as Microcosm Music, Archipel, Sleep is Commercial and most recently, Dronarivm.

Sven’s early work would often focus on Minimal Techno rhythms, adorned by vacant Ambient tones. His more recent work has been centred more around developing his Ambient sound, with modern classical influences listing the likes of A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Hans Zimmer, Max Richter and the late Jóhann Jóhannsson. 2017 saw the emergence of ‘Paper Streets’ on Dronarivm which felt like a landmark release in Sven’s discography, ranking highly in many an end of year list.

We’re pleased to present his follow up ‘Schachmatt’ which is a German phrase for something that ends or when something is finalised or indeed, the last move in chess. The concept was born as Sven was inspired by watching a movie about famous chess players and as a result, he has created a set of disparate tracks to reference this as each player in the film had a different strategy. He wanted the approach for each track to play out along a differing path, each with its own unique characteristics or game plan, if you will.
The resulting soundtrack presents itself as a melancholic space for the listener, with every move of the chess pieces offered as undefined metaphors for your own interpretation.”
