Phonocake

Aiming to present the local electronic music scene on a wider scale, the German Dresden-based mp3 label Phonocake has been searching and finding mostly unknown artists from the city Dresden since June 1, 2003. However, Phonocake doesn't see itself as just a medium to distribute music over the internet, but also as a platform for artists to interact and act locally.

After two years the second full release of Idhren, »Klint«, follows his great and also notably debut EP on the meanwhile disfunct greek netlabel »Digilog«. While this former release was clompletely swimming in downtempo, on to open structured ambient, »Klint« now consists of increasing IDM, always containing a calm and harmonic core. From time to time, melancholic extensiveness says hello. Idhren's release on digilog could had been released on Phonocake then, if we would have realised his...

The wind is blowing from a very different direction with Phonocake's latest release: Disrupt transfers classic reggae music to contemporary media, thus producing reggae with the help of digital tools - laptop dub plates, so to speak. You could call the sounds developing from that mixture spherically electronic. All four tracks are very dubby, three of them are constructed on traditional riddims, as is usual - and even essential - in reggae music. The influences of digital elements turn the...

Welcome to the world of the musician 'Drehton'. Sweet little ghosts are zipping around breaking percussions and beautiful guitar lines, which turn into something else every now and then, since the guitar is mainly used as input device for a midi controller. 'Lhoupcakes' is a very emotional, an instinctive release, built of fragments of a live recording in Dresden's club gallery 'l'houp'. There and then, fat beats will give this listening experience a push forward. Short and sweet. Enjoy.

Dimitris Palikaris' netlabel debut brings us finest laidback downbeat electronica from Greece, referencing lots of genres, like 80ties elektro, cosmic and dubstep in his very own downtempo style. With this release we rush in microscopic hi speed to our 100st release, which we will most likely left out for later use for compilation, since other good releases want to see the public first. phonocake.org

»Pulse« is about bits & pieces. Single parts, repeatedly demixed, modulated, filtered, chopped and newly formed into structures. It's music, that functions like a multiple repainted picture. To listen to makes you an adept. The room between abstract sound and concrete noise is measured here. When tones become noise, images will be available, that aren't completely medially tied yet. more information (www.phonocake.org)

After his EP 'Speicher' let quite a few of the Phonocake listeners soar in the heights of (somber) bliss, Trans Alp comes back for more. His EP 'Strom' features 5 tracks, again possessing plenty of potential to speed up a music lovers heart rate. Each of the tracks follows a basic musical idea, each of those being quite comprehensible.

The ep starts dubby in the beginning, made after his first visit at audioLAB Dresden, where he came across. The track has recordings of a guest singer in it. Very smooth the ep continues to a more introverted but playful level and brings us to 2 pieces of SciFi-adventure-game-music, produced years ago for the game 'The Kore Gang'. 11 more of such tracks can be found on his CD on Bohnerwachs Tonträger.

This slow and irregular hip (or trip?) hop beat upon which the listener will automatically lapse into a rhythmic bounce is combined and documented with an either electrifying or electrocuting foreground, depending on your particular point of view. Rhythmic, groovy, slightly deranged, and it's somehow cool too.

The three tracks by Trans Alp are all characterized by a sinister atmosphere.

Even though you can detect hints of "chill out" in the name of the EP, Madstyle does not offer you sounds treated with some kind of fabric softener. Much rather, dynamical rhythms and atmospheric sounds add up to a complex structure, unfolding its pleasant effect after a few seconds. For eight tracks, this pulsing cloud of sounds hovers above the listener and displays the most varied aspects. The first track, "Frozen Planet", shyly approaches you and lives with close to no...

Percussive mechanical sounds and drones form crater landscapes and the warm sounds and melodies from time to time are the meadow on the edge of the crater. So, Kraterwiese is the perfect soundtrack for your next mission to mars. The german title 'Kraterwiese' is a neologism, wich is made of the words "crater" an "meadow". This ambivalence is also reflected in Anaxy's music. Kraterwiese is the third release of Anaxy on Phonocake.

After a final winter stupor we gaze into the rays of closer photons and see Matti T's latest color expressions, in both his visual artwork and also four new tracks he brings to us. New in style is a more dancefloor like track whose musical direction we already could feel in the Teppana release, a group in which Matti T is a member in. The trance like positive vibes guide us into an ambivalent beauty of a strong electronica track. Sunbeams will increase the spirit and the final track will guide...

Ever-changing and vital jazz-detroit-electro, later changing into a few more straight tracks. Improvised here and there, with a synthesizer guest appearance of R2D2. ;-) The sounds' occasional dirty quality is very much intended. If you imagine a pub in 'Star Wars', exactly this music would be playing there. '3130351 volt' is Kryptic Universe's debut album. Even though several labels were interested in the album, he ended up picking Phonocake for the release. We are happy about it and say...

Soothing and at the same time so beautifully varied that the track is far from boring. It conveys a feeling of anticipation or preparation. The calm before the storm, perhaps? Definitely of aesthetic value.

What a funny expression of being a single human in a chaotic world, feels like Knytt-Journeys & runs, all between sheep and cattles, flying progressive Tarzan joining Lucy, Cumbia moving. The universe is a joke and we are the laughing protagonists in a biological window, daisyflowers, believing in turntables and table tennis, lazy honey sucking insects sitting on hot barbecued cows. Have fun. With inspirations from introspective sea events and lysergic mountain highs in Uruguay, Sound...

Slowly moves the Phonocake "catalog-squirrel", although in times of immense electronic music quantities. It is saturday evening, not everybody sits at home, but some do. We live in a town, where tristesse but also beauty is well known. And the soundtrack of this insight emotional world comes by Bad Comfort these day. It is November in 2008, the snow went down and is thawing now, but that's not relevant in the digital world. The Sounds go around the world, into warm and in the even...

In perfect attention the crystallized minescrafter digs through the depths of the heights. In hand luggage the best machines, he travels across noone's heaven. Three rooms. With Winterberg's second album, we go a bit deeper into his work. After his self chosen "lock in with grand" some songs reached new levels. Grasping the moment, comfort of maturity. Between saturated thickness and clear raising there are also occasionally surprises. Over three hours of music has been found for this...

With the album "Clouds under the bridges" we finally accomplish to introduce one of the musicians, who is more known through live music projects. So it doesn't wonder, that most of the tracks released here derive from live recordings. "Winterberg" is the artists Electronic Project. His album introduces Phonocake's new year, starting with the first snow in Dresden here. Again it is a release to lay back and to think back and forth, as it should be also in the fastest of...

With this EP we document one of Trans Alps concerts of the last years, which is also a take of one of his musical processes, which can be described as developing the tracks from one concert to another. The EP brings five tracks of a concert, taken place in the now vanished off/space »Krautwaldfabrik«. This former cultural space is documented in the magazine CYNAL 01 (in German language only): www.issuu.com/cynal/docs/cynal01_2013/44 Trans Alp mixes small acoustic sound objects with analogue...

'Magic Land' is a journey into childish fantasy. The artist's primary task was to dip the listeners into a beautiful world of fairy tale. It is dedication to novels of Alexander Volkov who made the wonderful world of Magic Land based on Baum's 'Oz'. Every track is a trip to different realm of that Land. Godspeed! All tracks and Artwork by Radio Libra; http://radiolibramusic.bandcamp.com ; Track 4 is a remix of the track "Born In A Tropical Swamp" by Secede

Escape Now!'s music went more and more  microscopic in the years after 2003. Starting from the IDM electronica point  he eventually arrived in the ambient domain. Lichtung is a fifty minutes laid back  microscope universe, visualizing this path.  Please do not wonder, the release will be  published as catalogue number 100, that was  not set until now. A festive compilation  was thought to go with this number but this  was not realized so far, so let's party and  compile later, maybe...

The music by illocanblo can be perceived as rather contemporary art instead of classic electronic or IDM.  His production process consists certain artistic techniques. The machines are fed with his mood and partially put in generative mode and automated. So illocanblo is like a duo of a human and a machine. You can read a brand new interview with illocanblo on his artist page at Phonocake.org. Three Remixes, by Dr. Doctor, King Imagine and .dm accompany the release. Release Pages Links en:...

After two years the second full release of Idhren, »Klint«, follows his great and also notably debut EP on the meanwhile disfunct greek netlabel »Digilog«. While this former release was clompletely swimming in downtempo, on to open structured ambient, »Klint« now consists of increasing IDM, always containing a calm and harmonic core. From time to time, melancholic extensiveness says hello. Idhren's release on digilog could had been released on Phonocake then, if we would have realised his...

"Requiemdata The current release from Aries Fiktion takes its time - a lot of time - as it develops and grows, yet the listener's patience is never tested. After a pensive intro, the unusual presence of classical instruments builds up a solemn atmosphere; the suggestion of choral voices adds to the reverential mood. The theme is picked up and altered throughout the song, leaving the listener overwhelmed. But, imperceptibly, the atmosphere of heaviness dissolves, into an invigorating,...

No more fear" - Compared with Graf's earlier releases, there is an apparent mood change in this track: a dark determination, which probably doesn't remind just me of the heights of EBM. Powerful, almost whipping beats contribute to the mood; the use of the vocals underlines the atmosphere characterized by sadness and retribution. "Fragment aus Hörspiel" - Phonocake has never released an audio play before. Actually, it's still not releasing one, as we get to hear but a fragment...

Her music is the bridge between soulful popcultural sounds and the creative world of beats and clicks the tracks you can find the bass/keyboard/singing combinations, which are more or less unusual for phonocake netlabel, but fine in the thread of releases by disrupt, tinitus, beat.dowsing and audiophil, who represent an relaxed n souly beats and sometimes singer style, not being afraid of guitars too. www.phonocake.org

Close to being a tradition we get back to the musical world of Mother Russia. With his debut under use of old soviet synths krokar looks in the slightly depressing areas of electronic music, what touches current feelings a bit and fits to the style of Now. »Tangata« is classical phonocake style, which corresponds very well to many releases on our label: reduced, openly electronic, concrete, open to experiments and somehow mystical. phonocake.org/tangata
