Since 2011, Beijing-based electronic post-metal producer Izalith has been shaking the boundaries between genre-melding like nothing you've ever heard before; Celestial vocal splicing, raw, mesmerising distorted breaks atop crushingly concise drums and percussion, propelling one into a realm of immersive bliss-soaked resonance.
From the project's humble 2011 beginning, already then promising experimental artist Izalith released an industrial-metal infused debut release, titled 'Gnomon', Izalith went on to explore these familiar yet entrancing territories with each passing release.
Izalith's latest compelling output, titled 'Shibboleth' EP takes any past discretion and turns it upside down onto its own feral, unpredictable and multifaceted head now complete with cascading electro-metal breaks and crushing post-rock sections. Now, Cape Town-based imprint and family MoonSwing Netlabel have just reissued Izalith's latest compelling work, 'Shibboleth' EP for FREE download.

Righteous Woman is a feminist awakening and excavation of the voices within, repositioning the multitudes of womanhood, to push back against the patriarchy, to offer the possibility of living on one's own terms.
"With Righteous Woman I wanted to explore the themes of trying to be a modern, progressive and open-minded woman and all the challenges that come along with that a life approach that has proved again to often feel isolating. Lots of folks seem pretty cozy with the status quo."

Nostress Netlabel is proud to release " Granchite Yumtruso PT 2", the new digital EP by Massimo Ruberti, an artist from Livorno (Italy) who usually define himself as a "Trafficker of sounds and images".
The album is the second part of the EP "Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1 ", released by Nostress Netlabel exclusively for Netlabel Day 2016 organized by the Chilean netlabel M.I.S.T. and which involves Netlabels from all over the world.
It's an album of warm and elegant sounds, scratching the heart and soul of the listener. A work that runs through wilderness, unexplored lands never trodden by human hands. Through listening we find ourselves in a desert devoid of its characteristic and constant wind, driving on non-existent paths, you suddenly find yourself in an oasis where the perspective changes and even the sand seems to take on the color of the sky and thirst suddenly becomes the ' last of the primary needs. The Sax caressing soft carpets of Synth, nocturnal atmospheres through the time gap that separates the vintage from the traditional electronic sound.
"Granchite Yumtruso PT 2" closes a cycle of sounds that gradually stratify with exotic and colored atmospheres, with distant echoes that rest on long carpets with an antique flavor. The voice of Ada Doria in "Wilderness Falling" and "Cosmic egg traveling blues" seems to come out of an 1870 gramophone as it disperses vibrations in the desert.
The sax of Fabio Leonardi paints well-defined shades of color. Notable orchestral arrangements of Roberto Mangoni in "Cosmic egg traveling blues". The songs were recorded at Dogana D'acqua Studio. The work has been mixed and mastered by Francesco Landucci @ Poderino Recording Studio.

CHANCES have just released their newest single “Rishikesh” .
"We love this song and feel it has a certain power to it. It's about choice and intention. The intention to trust your instinct, and to align action with thought. The song's driving rhythm continually pushes forward, the vocals play off each other in a sort of call and response, the synths spark up a colorful chaos. All of that is built around a loop of voices recorded on iPhone on the banks of the Ganges in the holy city of Rishikesh, India.We came together in Montreal in 2016 to sketch out a few songs, just to see where uninhibited brainstorming might lead us. New rules brought new possibilities, one person’s writer’s block became another’s building block, now we’re happy to be sharing our third single with you. The first singles ‘Shine’ & ‘Leave The Light On’ were released early this year to great notices."

Psychonavigation Records founder, Keith Downey returns with his latest musical offering, Buddha Bowl. Under the guise of No Mask Effect, the prolific Downey has just released his fifth project in under two years through Psychonavigation Records.
The album opens with “Be Good To Us”, a diverse mix of industrial complex beats, electronic and Afro-Caribbean inspired vocal snippets alongside an ear worm of a saxophone groove. On “Siren” the mood shifts with a lush sea of sound drifting from the speakers. A sinister yet tranquil string melody lurks beneath the audio waves, eventually emerging to create a beautiful piece of effortless ambient.
Meanwhile the mysterious bells, chimes and subtle, pulsing rhythm of “Hidden Surprises” takes Downey's long time love of Ambient music to new territory. With chattering electronic beeps and bleeps, celestial vocal samples and an ultrasound inspired bassline that is both intriguing and unexpected.
“Dark Emotion” however, reveals itself to be more enigmatic rather than pessimistic. An eight minute sensatory expedition of obscure samples both organic and electronic, nature sounds, glorious synths spiraling electronic loops are all included in the production. Music for headphones, this track's intricacies can only unfold with repeated listens.
With what is undoubtedly his most accomplished and eclectic collection to date, Buddha Bowl should satisfy long time No Mask Effect fans while exposing his unique sound to many new listeners.
