  1. https://onearcdegree.bandcamp.com/album/gravity-shaped Gravity Shaped is the fourth LP in One Arc Degree's expansive discography. Once again, the duo shifts away from their past attempts in music styles & subgenres, this time looking for inspiration in the cosmic dimensions of downtempo and trip hop sounds. The beats are grounded deep in the earth while the ethereal melodies point deep into space. After all, each and every structure in this universe, from the biggest black hole to the tiny human on little planet Earth, is gravity-shaped. Tracklist: 1. Cosmic Web 06:56 2. The Great Chain Of Being 04:42 3. Earth To Vesta 08:26 4. Love In A Dangerous Spacetime 07:55 5. A New Day In Space 05:56 6. Macrocosm Of The Ego 06:09 7. The World That Prevents Us 08:08 8.

  5. Artist: One Arc Degree Album: Cosmos in Flux Type: LP Style tags: ambient, dub, chill Media type: digital Year: 2017 Label: Synphaera Records Greek producers Vasilis Kesalidis and Ioannis Konstantios started One Arc Degree with the intent to explore how music can trigger different emotional responses and memories, and then channel those evocations back into the music itself in a continuous cycle of discovery and renewal. With Cosmos in Flux, their Synphaera debut, One Arc Degree explores the mutable world of space-time on a micro-scale: “There is no reason that spacetime needs to be fundamentally smooth. We can imagine it consisting of many small, ever-changing, regions in which space and time are not definite, but fluctuate in a foam-like manner. As we probe at smaller scales, about ten times a billionth of the diameter of hydrogen's nucleus, spacetime foam reveals itself, an ocean of quantum bubbles through which light travels, cosmos in flux.†—One Arc Degree

  11. review by Mike G @ Ambient Music Guide's Best Albums of 2016: A stunning piece of cosmic, richly melodic ambient techno-trance and retro psychedelia from long-time chill master Gio Fazio, and rather different to the juicy Eastern-dub sounds he makes under his Makyo banner. Atmosphere Factory sounds quite unlike anything else in psychill right now, partly because he made it “live†without any computers and using mostly old-school gear. The clean, hypnotic arpeggios and jaw-droppingly pretty textures sound like a love letter to classic Silent Records, the 90’s ambient label that launched Makyo and - in its 2016 rebooted form - featured Atmosphere Factory on one of its compilations. You'll also hear a lovely pastiche of hippie minimalist Terry Riley’s droning organ called “A Rainbow On Curved Hipsâ€. Made by a gifted multi-instrumentalist and composer of some 35 years stranding, Atmosphere Factory is completely wonderful and gets my highest recommendation.
  12. review by Mike G @ Ambient Music Guide's Best Albums of 2016: The Core by Serbian duo Fourth Dimension is the freshest-sounding of the bunch [label's releases] and has similar diversity [with the rest of them] despite being the work of a single artist. “Dynamics†and “Synthetic Cognitive Process†have an intriguing industrial edge, and the album’s swings between light and dark show they’re not just skilled emusicians but expert dramatists as well.
  13. review by Mike G @ Ambient Music Guide's Best Albums of 2016: A blinding album from a Greek electronica duo making their long-play debut after years of singles and e.p releases. Combining memorable tunes with superb production nouse, The Ocean Palace is a free-ranging fusion of lush chillout with strains of epic breakbeat, progressive rock, and thumping progressive psytrance. The production is uncanny at times; the duo have constructed their sound on a vivid three-dimensional soundstage so that, despite all the textural richness and layers of harmonies, a striking sense of space remains. The unforgettable opener “Through This Haze†glides slowly up to the heavens on a humming bassline before locking down into a broken groove that packs an incredible gnarly punch. Also on the menu is sparkling midtempo psy, beatless reveries and slow, shimmering deep space tech. “Hydrogen Times Pi†sounds like an ambient rock rave-up with its sad, simple melody swirling over a maelstrom of distorted guitar sounds and thundering drums.
  14. review by Mike G @ Ambient Music Guide's Best Albums of 2016: A hearty welcome back to one of the greatest dub acts in the world, New Zealand’s Pitch Black. The new album Filtered Senses is gold class, their first collection of new original tunes in nearly a decade. On the dub-tech axis, the band's music still sits first and foremost towards the dub end. This makes it quite distinct from many of the current crop of dub-techno acts where the dominant voice is techno, even though both styles use dub’s signature delay and echo effects. So in Pitch Black’s case the bedrock is usually not metronomic 4/4 beats but more complex grooves and rhythms pinned down with big, tuneful basslines. The techno element is more in the textures - the sparingly-used snarls and bleeps and floating ambient clouds. Three tracks on the album also feature a female vocal, smartly woven into the music as texture rather than song so that lyrics are never a distraction. Filtered Senses finds Pitch Black at the top of their game, a deft mixture of force and understatement, sounding like no one but themselves.
  15. review by Mike G @ Ambient Music Guide's Best Albums of 2016: The new album from ethno-techno and world beat pioneer Banco de Gaia (Toby Marks) comes off the back of several well-received reissues over the past two years: the 20th Anniversary Editions of Maya (1994) and Last Train To Lhasa (1995). His shining newbie The 9th of Nine Hearts is inspired, with its powerful prog rock-inflected psychedelia providing the extra spark that’s often proved elusive on his albums since the 90’s. There's strong writing, some rockin grooves, lush gliding panoramas, lovely wordless vocals and a profoundly cosmic undercurrent throughout. The live guest players - drums, bass, sax - also add a dimension that's missing from a lot of current sample-based global exotica, a subset of chillout which Banco has inspired a great deal of over the years. All up, Nine Hearts is his strongest album of new material since 1998’s Magical Sounds. PS: eagle-eyed fans should spot the tasty pastiche of the ricocheting bass sounds from Pink Floyd’s “One Of These Daysâ€.
  16. review by Mike G @ Ambient Music Guide' Best Albums of 2016: The Synphaera sound is deeply Berlin school-influenced but with an ambient dance sensibility; a smooth, panoramic style of cosmic psychedelic bleep music that French label Ultimae Records originally championed. The Meridian album by Ascendant (label founders Chris Bryant and Don Tyler) is quintessential ambient trance: lush and mysterious music with spinning arpeggios above gliding pads and discreet rhythmic pulses. “Arcology†is a dark-edged stunner with its haunting chorales, odd delay effects and sound design that has an uncommonly deep depth of field.
  17. Sounds lovely, I'm really into this sound lately. Trying my hand at it as well, together with a good friend of mine. Check this EP out, the latest offering from my dub-techno sideproject ...and if you like it, there is a free d/l link for the 320kbps version.
  18. My latest discovery is this croatian label (ignore this if you know it already): https://soundcloud.com/pistolerorecordings
