  1. A healthy dose of Ishq and Mick Chillage for me, thank you very much
  2. Checking out the latest from ASC... I gotta say, I love everything the man does! Blissful ambient to lose yourself into...
  3. As we both love science (I'm a physicist while my partner is an engineer), we wanted something mathematical, simple and in correlation with astronomy/cosmology. The 1/360 of a circle (in other words, one arc degree) was pure enough for our purpose, so we stuck with it!

  5. I really loved the playful nature of Silicon Symphony! Lyserge must have had a lot of fun writing this album

So, this is our debut on the label, three tracks further exploring the ties between chillout and drum & bass, in a cosmic, cinematic way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxMDa_jz018

  8. I'm very excited to be appearing as a guest over at Tonepoet's "Spaceman's Transmissions" and deeply flattered by his kind words!

Set is called "Empty As Universe", meant to bring you closer to the ever-expanding, serene & mysterious Cosmos...

  9. First of all, dividing lines exist only for them to be crossed! "Lifeforms" creates a dreamy and weird place to be in and that feels pretty psychedelic to me. I usually enjoy listening to it while reading something, a sci-fi novel (eg. Martian Time-Slip) or a fantasy comic book (eg. The Sandman).
  10. For me, I guess this is the one. Blew my mind back in the day... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OofUj_TNgrc
  11. Good to hear! This is one of my favorite autumn soundtracks:
  12. Artists: 1. Matt Hiller 2. Geir Jenssen 3. Seb Taylor 4. Evan Marc Bartholomew 5. Gus Till Questions: 1. What makes you keep going (in music creation). 2. Why tackle many projects at once? Does it help with artistic excitement / creativity? 3. Where do you see the music industry going 5 years down the road? 4. What drew you to ambient music? 5. When we will finally program computers to create musical content on their own, will that be art?
  13. Artist: Erot & One Arc Degree Album: Mani of Despair Type: EP Style tags: Psychill , Drum & Bass Media type: DIGITAL Year: 2015 Label: Not On Label Catalog ID: - Length: 00:12:51 Official url: http://erot.bandcamp.com/album/erot-one-arc-degree-mani-of-despair-ep Mani of Despair EP was conceived as a prelude (actually a teaser) to Synergism EP, soon to be released on Iboga Records. Erot re-imagines the mournful & emotive "For The Love Of Despair" in his distinct style, originally released by One Arc Degree on Under A Trillion Suns [Microcosmos Records]. One Arc Degree return the favour and present their atmo dnb interpretation of the deep & relaxing "Mani", originally released by Erot in his debut, Mani EP, for Iboga Records.
  14. Nice topic! I was drawn to electronic music early in my student life, mostly by the sounds of Prodigy. So, for the first couple of years I was consciously listening to that rave/hardcore sound of the early 90s (and a good deal of happy hardcore as well). Then, during high school, a friend of mine randomly bought a couple of compilations, Rave Mission vol. 3 and Behind The Eye vol. 2. What a paradigm shift... I was instantly hooked to the sounds of trance music! So for the next few years I was happily exploring the brand new world of trance, goa and psychedelic music. My new favorites were Hallucinogen, Juno Reactor, Cosmosis, Doof, MFG etc. Around the year 1998 I was starting to feel a bit nostalgic for the old days of rave and breakbeats. So I was shuffling through vinyls in my favorite record store at the time and the moment a Good Looking Records vinyl touched the needle I knew it... It was love at first listen! I had discovered the lush, spacious sounds of atmposheric drum & bass. What a sound!! From that day till now this aesthetic speaks directly to my inner being. This mellower approach to music influenced my listening habits a lot, so I consciously began to replace psytrance with psychill. First it was Mystery of the Yeti and Shpongle and then quickly diversified to Bluetech, Solar Fields, Saafi Brothers and Makyo, to name a few. Dropping psytrance might have to do with growing older I suppose. Then again, I was never really moved by hard & noisy drum & bass either so I guess my mellower side prevailed early in my life! So, by 2002 I was mainly listening to atmospheric drum & bass and psychill/ambient. I was always curious for artists that would try to merge aspects of these two styles but to no avail (...which eventually led me to try it out myself and thus the One Arc Degree project was born). Yet another paradigm shift happened around the year 2006. Belatedly, I had discovered the demanding, experimental sounds of Autechre. This much more introverted, artificial kind of sound was tickling my brain in a different way and that felt fresh and original to me. So for the next few years I was discovering old gems form artists like Plaid, Aphex Twin, Alva Noto and others. What impresses me today is that the boundaries between styles are gone. You can find daring artists that manage to skillfully blend elements of all these different approaches in an artful way. And that really excites me! PS: One detour I have taken during all these years has to do with a trip I took to Oslo. There I happened to attend a concert by a psychobilly band called Mad Sin. That was a crazy experience, raw energy combined with b-movie/punk aesthetic. That concert urged me to explore the psychobilly sound a bit and from there go back to rockabilly and, more importantly, surf rock. I had never listened to rock music in my life but surf rock won me over!
  15. Seb Taylor's collection of tracks is simply stunning and an important piece of chill music history. This guy is amazingly talented and versatile!
  16. Planet Mu is one of the true pioneers in the contemporary electronic music spectrum. In many cases this label managed not only to capture the people's attention but also to shift trends in the modern fusion of styles during the last decade. This is a very interesting piece if you want to dive deep into the label's origins, described by Paradinas himself as well as many of the label's artists. Moreover, Paradinas has also put together Spotify playlists that highlight the length and breadth of the music Planet Mu has championed for the past two decades and you will find the relevant links in the article. http://www.factmag.com/2015/05/13/planet-mu-oral-history/
  17. I loved Jacob Newman & Devin Underwood - Sending The Past and everything by Carpe Sonum really. Top quality label!
  18. Thanks for the kind words snowdrop & Alchemist, much appreciated guys THIS is out now, grab it for free @ Ektoplazm!
  19. Artist: One Arc Degree & Cybernetika Album: Nether Moon Type: EP Style tags: Downtempo, Drum & Bass, Psybreaks Media type: DIGITAL Year: 2015 Label: Ektoplazm Catalog ID: EKTEP22 Length: 00:30:46 Official url: http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/one-arc-degree-cybernetika-nether-moon I am very proud to present you our latest One Arc Degree work, this time a powerful collaboration with Cybernetika! Since we both approach the drum & bass style from a different route, it was very intriguing to join forces and see what comes out! Nether Moon EP is the first fruit of our collaboration and you can now download it for free from Ektoplazm. We hope you like it! I'm pasting the release blurb below: This cinematic quartet represents an ideal symbiosis between Cybernetika’s dark future visions and One Arc Degree’s deep and mystical explorations. Together these artists have composed a soundtrack for a mysterious place: “Behind the illusion of a hostile and barren rock floating in space there is another world, bringing ancient memories and dreams to life.†Track 2 written and produced by One Arc Degree (Vasilis Kesalidis & Ioannis Konstantios), based on samples from “The Ghost Music†by A-Duff; tracks 1, 3 and 4 written and produced by One Arc Degree & Cybernetika (Lars Goossens). Mastered by Cybernetika with artwork by Christian Becker and design by Alexander Synaptic.

  21. I remember listening to Kindred Spirits by Jairamji for hours on end during my stay in Cambridge ...
