"Rewolucja życia codziennego". To zaangażowany rap społeczny prosto z Wrocławia. Teksty Wyraza płynące prosto z ducha, położone na surowych bitach Lordno tworzą wybuchową
mieszankę, którą musisz sprawdzić ! Płyta inspirowana jest rewolucyjnym ruchem lettrystów powstałym we Francji w połowie XX w., który stanowił bezpośrednią kontynuację nurtu surrealistycznego. Starcie się surrealizmu z bezwzględnymi realiami
postkomunistycznego kapitalizmu dało asumpt do napisania i wyprodukowania całości ! Wyraza możesz znać z wcześniejszych dokonań grupy Elabs Crew oraz solowej epki "Nad obręczą" czy mixtape'u "Idee". Dla Lordno jest to oficjalny debiut producencki."

Ehelow – [SHHHT_14]

Release Date: 19 February 2012
Label: Silenced

"Krasnoyarsk, Russia. That's where this music comes from.
It feels like the other side of the planet. It's close to Mongolia and Kazakhstan and no where near Moscow. Over there, three guys came together and created Eholow. Their sound (something in between intelligent dance music and post-rock) got picked up by Nu_Aura Netlabel. An interesting new label which combines music and illustrations for every track. Sure enough, this did get our attention and brought us to the two tracks presented to you today: Нити (niti) and Нутации (nutazii).
They speak to me on an experimental unconventional level, but hey, don't take my word for it... check it out!"

Tayyib Ali - Keystone State Of Mind

Release Date: 2011

"Tayyib Ali is an 18 year old artist from Philadelphia, P.A. Music was instilled in him from a very young age. Ali began to hone his rap skills at the tender age of 10. He spent the majority of his teenage years perfecting his trade. For Ali a hobby quickly turned into a burning passion. He had the talent and drive to succeed.

Through focus and hard work some doors began to open for the young Ali. Performing in front of a sellout audience at the Kamikazz Festival in Greenwhich, Connecticut. Opening for the likes of Shwayze, Sam Adams, and Super Smash Bros. It all came full circle when Ali found himself on that same stage a year later. Only this time he was the headliner. Throughout his young career Ali has been influenced by a few artists. Many whom have reached out and taken the young MC under their wing.

With creative lyrics, catchy vocals, and a variety of original beats Ali began to develop a following. Upon releasing his singles, “Cold World”, “PA Chillin’”, “What My Father Told Me”, and “Kid Again” Ali’s fan base has stretched throughout the New England area. In early 2010 Tayyib started to build a dedicated team with a main objective of reaching the next level. He has developed a very young and passionate fan base. You can hear many of Ali’s tracks blaring from dorm windows and frat parties throughout New England. This leading to a growing sense of anticipation and excitement for his debut EP entitled “Eighteen.”"

Lunova Labs – [SHHHT_13]

Release Date: 04 December 2011
Label: Silenced

"Let's call this future garage? There's a piano, syncopated rhythms, beat-skipping kick drums and spaced out vocal samples.
Lunova Labs (USA) made this release purposefully for the Silenced netlabel. It was inspired by a philosophical movement, called transcendentalism, which developed in the 19th century. Among the transcendentalists' core beliefs was the inherent goodness of both man and nature. Transcendentalists believed that society and its institutions - particularly organized religion and political parties - ultimately corrupted the purity of the individual. They had faith that man is at his best when truly "self-reliant" and independent. Each song is titled off of a piece of work written by some of the leading figures of the movement.
The album breaths spirituality and mystery. I dare you to hit the repeat button. You'll find yourself back on the moon.

Bran Lanen – Sign Of The Progress EP

Release Date: 15 February 2012
Label: Cicuta

"Welcome to the sixth release of Cicuta Netlabel. From Cicuta always try to support the Spanish artists, as we believe that within our borders there is an excess of talent, perhaps in the welter of names who daily come to the fore, are a little forgotten. There is a special artist, whom we met a few years ago, and surprised us with his talent and his way of feeling the music, which we do not accept that, and we try to give it the support it deserves. We’re talking about Bran Lanen.
Bran is an artist from León (Spain), passionate defender of hardware and analog. So far his career in the musical has been pretty tied to netaudio, having published on netlabels like Zimmer, Antiritmo or Geometrika, but that has not stopped him getting a great success in a commercial label such Labrynth, publishing under his aka Lifeblood.
In this EP, Bran offers 4 intense tracks, deep, mental, full of nuances that surround you in an atmosphere of darkness which is not easy to leave. Of course, without ever losing sight of the dance floor…
As for the remixers, on the one hand we have from Zagreb (Croatia) to Robert Pain, one of the artists who are making waves in the underground circuit techno artists. His label, Black Queen, despite having little reference is becoming a must for lovers of deep and dark techno. We note particularly the reference number 1, which has been played by a lot of great dj on the world stage.
Finally, and as always, from Drugstore bring our usual remix, in this case giving a more powerful vision to the track Lost Procedures."

DFRNT - Actaeon EP

Release Date: 12 February 2012
Label: Cut
"The tenth Cut EP is brought to you by label curator DFRNT, and provides a showcase for some of the minimal drum & bass styling he has been working on over the past year.

Clean-cut and minimal intricacies, infinite synth stabs and mellow vocal work with a suitable helping of bass when required. This EP showcases a slightly alternative side to DFRNT's work, and is bound to please fans of the recent output of Autonomic affiliates such as Synkro, Indigo, ASC or similar.

The second EP to surface in 2012, the tenth release from Cut is as much a curve-ball for the label sound as one might expect. Despite the clear shift in tempo, we reckon the emotion, melodies and musical sensibility within these 3 originals and 2 remixes is more than enough to tie it to the Cut family."
