Over-Load - Distance in Stars

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1311.0187
Dubstep, Chillout, Drum & Bass

Urban grooves are a musical portrait of this modern world. Cities, which are constantly keep on moving. Distances in some kilometers sometimes is similar to cosmic spaces, hopelessly separating people from each other.

Ralax - A Place That is Always There

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1311.0186
Industrial, IDM, Darkwave

This album is dedicated to any human consciousness being in entirely different locations. Associative series, sensual connections, imaginative flow - it all takes place. But these things are only a conception. Musical shell presented by a personal experiences of different places, memories and events. The only thing remains unchanged (i.e. the formula): "I'm always here". This "I" do not depend on anything and from anyone. Let it be a place that appears and shows all around... like an intangible inner jewel.

Kreazot-Maks & Demm 85 - Daydream

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1310.0179
Post-Rock, Industrial, Noise Rock

A wave of warmth and light collapses upon you, and something strange happens, though you're in vigil. The feeling is out of this world, it just penetrates inside you, showing the impossible images. While some are nasty, others - alluring. They try to interrupt the thoughts, to find the fulcrum in your mind. What an insane vision! Is it real? A kind of a dream factory that got out of control, injecting odd strange pictures into your consciousness. And you can't hide... Just fall into an infinite set of variations.

Gediminas Bytautas - Nonexistence of Existence

Record: 2006-2010 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1307.0164
Industrial, Experimental

Movement is essential for life. When you look around, you see the dynamic processes everywhere: so it was, so it is, so it will be. But when the objects stop and rest, they are likely fall out of a running stream and become nonexistent for those, who are moving. They are in their own system of interaction, concentrated on the inner evolution. There are two states of nonexistence: before and after stir - two seeming existences, because still objects are real for each other, while different by intentions. This seeming reality is called nonexistence of existence.

SiJ - Fragments of Memories

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1304.0160
Ambient, Soundscapes

Memories are the thing very fragile by their nature. They are individual and exist only in the scopes of ones mind. Remembrances riven into pieces and lacklustered by passed ages may become rather misleading, embellished by healing time. Anything happens making the life variegated mozaic of color-form multitude. Some of these pieces find the connection, assimilate with each other into something new making the unique pattern of self-consciousness.

Kenji - Raindrops

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1303.0155
Indietronica, Dubstep

When sunlight disappears from the Earth and sky is obscured in clouds, comes the time of quiet, dank melancholy. Drops of rain on the window. The freshness of moist Universe.

Vermos - Сверхблизкий космос (Superclose Cosmos)

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1301.0141
Indietronica, Dubstep, EBM

The Superclose Cosmos is a dummy, handmade planetarium in a tiny room, naive simulation, just like special effects of the Soviet tapes about conquest of the Universe. Parade of the paper stars hanging on invisible threads, plates with names of constellations; blue-eyed girls in the flight suits dancing under control of feelers of an intergalactic octopus; the Siberian shamans singing of phosphoric stars on wallpaper; rhythms of engine rooms of "Pegasus" recreated by the drum machine; figurine of wise Buddha laughing over this space samsara.

Saty - Introlence

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1212.0136
Ambient, Industrial

Inner space is made with sets of sounds scattered within the void and moving on erratic tracklines. Music dips attention into flowing abstract landscapes.

One Day of February - The Supernatural

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1212.0130
Indietronica

A little album where polyrhythm, melodiousness and atmosphere glimmer.

The Modergrade - Город М (City M)

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1209.0093
Dubstep, Electro

A little trip among urban landscapes. Senses and thoughts expressed with trendy melodic tunes.

Melong - Beyond

Record: 2010-2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1209.0085
Psy-Ambient, Experimental

Things can be really different if you take a look through a prism of imagination. Modern image gives a unique futuristic view on the relics of the past ages. Like an idea of cyber monk that beats the spectral gong of the universe. Pushed to the future, ancient artifacts may get more spiritual and powerful. And this is the moment when you see a thunderous temple drawing its tentacles in all directions: over the horizon, above the sky and underneath the ground. The odd hoary structure possible in the world that is beyond the notion.

Common Ratio - HD-Dreams

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1207.0068
Avantgarde, Noise, Experimental

Waiting for the opening of the subway. Phantasmagoria with electric swamp and its mechanical residents, neon forest and haze where it is so easy to get lost. A ball of urban weekdays. Pathos of the authorities and poverty in homes. Mass migration. Prostration. Arizona desert, dust in the eyes. Average European July in the eastern traditions of Zen. Indulging in free and unpredictable, but clever improvisations, the author creates a gallery of abstract shapes, as elusive and ethereal as dreams.

Saty - Orbstatic

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0035
Drone Ambient

This piece of art is not about melody and has no form. The amorphous curves created of nothing evolve into fanciful objects are employed into various scenes. The grand spectacle is opened in ones sight spiced with scraps of reality. Any human involvement is hidden under the impression of sound shaped by nobody, rather something beyond the grasp of the mind. It sheds from the fracture of unrevealed shapes to play with your consciousness and rush away into abyss.

One Day of February - The City of Devils

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0027
Breakbeat, Dubstep, Experimental

The fiery twilight falls upon the streets and you get trapped between these walls. A melancholic symphony for urban landscapes, a mascarade of violence and a triumph of evil. Suffocating sense of despair creeps into your soul. It is soaked into your mind and you untimely become just a tarnished shadow on a plane canvas.

One Day of February - Another

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0023
Indietronica

Another impression, another approach, another vision, another reality. Everything mentioned has nothing to do with this album. Its meaning - the following, one more. Composer decided to continue the ideas of his previous album, to fill them with more depth and to show once again to find several interpretations of similar sounds and movements. Once again he builds and destroys colorful epic images in the blink of an eye, reaching the highest point of the art in the frame of his own minimalistic conception.

Secret Keys - In the City of Clouds

Record: 2009 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1202.0016
Modern Classical, Ambient

Sparkling minimalism of keys tells for itself and paints amusing pictures. They are made in two moods: light as an airy marshmallow or chilly wind and gloomy as evil thoughts or sudden storm clouds. The light part flashes in positive cheer and sustains the calm and monotonous atmosphere. When the darker side bursts the change in a perception is evident. The music can sound loud and solemn in an empty room, as an enigmatic ritual, dismal in times it forces you glance around for a moment. It is great soundtrack for a day with pressure drops, unsettled weather and mood swings. But this fragile obsession may over if you just pull the plug falling out into the reality

Common Ratio - Clubbing Outside

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1201.0013
IDM, Dubstep, Experimental

Nuclear mix of all genres and styles that influenced Common Ratio sound is used here as a refund for all taken moves and ideas. Tracks go one after another drawing the somber urban sketches of gray American life. And then our look rises to the height from the dirty street. Flocculent clouds are flowing in dull sky. Occasional birds appear from every quarter and dive into the muddy stratosphere soup making steep turns. They see the beauty of precise architecture from such an altitude and we are morally with them - this is magnificent!
