  2. Artist: Cybernetika Title: Solar Nexus Label: Ektoplazm Date: June, 2014 01 - Artificial Bloodline (80 BPM) 02 - Neuronal Interface (178 BPM) 03 - Distress Beacon (177 BPM) 04 - Monolithic (179 BPM) 05 - Bio-Magnetic Tunnel Transport (179 BPM) 06 - Stinger (178 BPM) 07 - Sol Nexus (160 BPM) 08 - Constellations (179 BPM) 09 - The Outcast Of Deadspace (150 BPM) Ladies and gentlemen please raise your glass to one of the greatest unsigned artists of all time. Though I'm sure it's done solely by his own choosing. Lars Goosens has returned with his 9th album that tells the story of genetically modified humans who after an absence of a millennium suddenly return with technology that surpasses the wildest dreams of all who came before them. This is a dark and symphonic journey through the farthest reaches of the galaxy. There is a palpable sense of foreboding as if we normal humans have bitten off more than we can chew. These mutants...friend or foe. I used to think that drum and bass was a very limited medium where there were only so many places you could go. After an interminably long absence Cybernetika proves me wrong. Again. Is it possible to miss someone you've never met? His compositions are so lush and multi-layered that they beg to be explored. Melodies don't float they scream over the oftentimes cacophonous background. Someone mentioned that the rapid percussion is a distraction from the treasure that lay underneath. Maybe. Until you listen to the complexity of that percussion and realize it's all part of a rich tapestry. This blazes a trail across the cosmos combining sci-fi atmosphere with the heavy hitting industrial sound. How can something so punishing be so beautiful? And just when the speed becomes too much and almost rends the sinewy flesh from your physical form he delivers emotionally charged and melancholic breaks that lead you where he wants you to go. Growly distortion and futuristic android cybernetics permeate the landscape. It's unrelenting hyperspace travel that show how far advanced these mutants are over the human race. Which is a pretty good metaphor for his crystal clear production and imagination. I know I don't have to say this, but... Do. Not. Sleep. On. This. Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  3. Artist: Xenofish Title: Decoder Label: Self-Released Date: October, 2013 01 - Rise Against Myself (90 BPM) 02 - Broken Interface (120 BPM) 03 - Spectral Edges (180 BPM) 04 - Forward (180 BPM) 05 - Sanctus (176 BPM) 06 - Rea (176 BPM) 07 - Arashi (176 BPM) This is the sophomore effort of Christian Becker and I like to think it's the companion album to his debut the same year Encoder. Rise Against Myself brings rich electronic hums and a hard beat. What a great downtempo intro that is clearly not taking it easy. Broken Interface is the sound of artificial intelligence coming online and becoming aware. If this wasn't part of the cyber-futuristic theme this would come off as just noise. It still might, but it fits and it helps illuminate the type of world he wants to place you in. The machines are back, and...they don't seem happy. 3rd track BOOM! Drum n Bass. The bpm's are very high, but the breaks still rule! And out of this one comes a nice, groovy rhythm and then almost imperceptibly it became a dnb track again. Well done. Forward and Rea are a brutal assault that will pin you back with their rapid fire arpeggiated leads and thundering percussion. The break in Rea is so welcome, I can almost hear myself panting with the faded drums in the background. Where as Encoder ended with a soft ambient closer Arashi is more in your face carnage, but softened slightly by the ethereal vocals of Hatsune Miku. I love futuristic music and if your thing is electronic mayhem with a science fiction theme then this is your guy, The production is out of this world and I applaud him for not just making an empty drum n bass album with little variety. It is an intense, almost too much voyage, but the skill he employs is amazing. It's like...electronic surgery. Free at Ektoplazm
  4. Artist: Xenofish Title: Encoder Label: Self Released Date: May, 2013 01 - Xenofish - Sigma (146 BPM) 02 - Xenofish - Leviathan (145 BPM) 03 - Xenofish - Discharge (176 BPM) 04 - Xenofish - Ziggurat (146 BPM) 05 - Xenofish - Mashiro's Dream (155 BPM) 06 - Xenofish - Logfile (97 BPM) 07 - Cybernetika - Pulsar (feat. Xenofish) (141 BPM) 08 - Xenofish - Blurred Matrix (83 BPM) This is the debut album from Christian Becker and it is an offering of different styles while running with a sci-fi/technology theme. It sounds very clear and I will tell you it is fairly intense. He eases us into things with the benign Sigma, a track with a nice breakbeat, but pretty forgettable. Leviathan is a somewhat harder full-on track with a very nice break that becomes more lush the longer it goes on. Discharge brings us our first taste of drum n bass and it is massive. Walls of electronic sound puncture the atmosphere with the high tempo calling card of this style. Again, Christian's break work is a highlight of the track with the dynamic give and take of all the elements. The track is constantly evolving, even slowing down to a mid tempo swagger briefly before erupting. Easily my favorite. Ziggurat is a lush, cosmic journey feeling warm and cold at the same time. The electronics vibrate as if alive and it instantly draws me in. Same with the beginning of Mashiro's Dream as he has fun with the cut-off knob. Decent, but not as cool as the previous two. Logfile is interesting because it's glitchy, noisy, nonsense sound is how I believe a computer would create music without instruction. Even though it is itself amusical, it fits right in with the theme. The team-up with Cybernetika is a treat and his influence is readily visible with a more melodic flair. Perhaps the machines last gasp, their final attempt to subvert the humans. The final track is an atmospheric ambient aftermath as docile as the previous tracks were unyielding. The battle is over and all that remains is to rebuild. It's a wonderful debut album. Full of varied styles with electronic fire and storytelling breaks. Very futuristic with excellent production. Highly recommended! Free at Ektoplazm

  6. I've thought about doing a sequel to my relatively popular Encrypted Universe but hadn't gotten around to digging for it. There are basically 3 people who rule this sound: Xenofish, Mellow Sonic, and Cybernetika, and none of them are signed to any labels or have any new releases in the past 3-4 years anyway. So unless they all make a comeback I wouldn't anticipate many more of these mixes. The neuro stuff seemed to fit nicely in a 20ish minute block towards the end. I tried to get the most listenable neurofunk available considering a vast majority of it is actually hurts to listen to. Had a lot of fun recording this. Enjoy!

  10. http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/one-arc-degree-cybernetika-nether-moon 01 - One Arc Degree & Cybernetika - Nether Moon (174 BPM) 02 - One Arc Degree - Ghost Comet (176 BPM) 03 - One Arc Degree - Ghost Comet (Cybernetika Remix) (176 BPM) 04 - Cybernetika - Stinger (One Arc Degree Remix) (87 BPM) The combined efforts of experienced Greek psybreaks and dub duo One Arc Degree and German psychedelic drum & bass pioneer Cybernetika take us on an emotive journey to the Nether Moon. Released by Ektoplazm, this cinematic quartet represents an ideal symbiosis between Cybernetikas dark future visions and One Arc Degrees 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.
  11. http://erot.bandcamp.com/album/erot-one-arc-degree-mani-of-despair-ep 01. Erot - Mani (One Arc Degree Remix) 06:09 02. One Arc Degree - For the Love of Despair (Erot Remix) 06:42 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.
  12. Artist: Xenofish Title: Datastasis Label: Self-Released Date: July, 2014 01 - Datastasis (178 BPM) 02 - Geiranum (176 BPM) 03 - Primeval Pattern (160 BPM) 04 - Zero Velocity (170 BPM) 05 - Disordered Minds (180 BPM) 06 - Twinmachine (182 BPM) 07 - Shattered Phantasm (176 BPM) This is Christian Becker's fourth album and it is a science fiction journey escorted by drum & bass music. The pace is quite hectic as the bpm's will tell you. As mentioned the atmosphere is definitely cosmic with Fifth Element characteristics. I would say that the intros and his breaks are the parts that appeal to me most. Very dark and descriptive. I like the sound and feel it's very clear, but comparisons to Cybernetika and Mellow Sonic cannot be helped. Is it possible to have an over saturated genre with just 3 participants? I don't think anyone would argue that the king of the hill is Cybernetika with his compositions so full of depth and complexity and that's where I think this suffers. Not because it is of low quality, far from it. But I feel it's just...more drum & bass that doesn't push the boundaries. Doesn't take the music in any direction that the other two projects haven't already done. I hear some great ideas and potential for a Front Line Assembly apocalyptic vibe that I hope he explores further however. It's a good album if you're a fan of futuristic drum & bass, but I ask you Christian what are you going to do to set yourself apart? Free at Ektoplazm Mdk
  13. The last time I attempted to make a mix of psychedelic drum & bass, it was a little all over the place. While there were a few great tracks, the mix had next to no flow, and the variety was far too much to be considered a legitimate representation of such a rare style. The theme of science fiction allowed me to mix neurofunk into this set, and the spacey sounds fit perfectly with what I was trying to do. Lots of energy and interesting music here. Enjoy! Cybernetika - Devoid of Gravity [Ektoplazm] Lumin Essence - Phobos [Genome] Cybernetika - Hayashis Journey [Ektoplazm] Xenofish - Sanctus [Ektoplazm] Xenofish - Arashi [Ektoplazm] Axi - Mayan Temple [Mindtech] Dementia & Dephas8 - Surrounded [Mindtech] Black Sun Empire - Don't You (State of Mind Remix) [blackout] Myselor - Reality [Full Force] Optiv & BTK - Tapout [Dispatch] Black Sun Empire - Fever (Chris.SU Remix) [blackout] Unknown Artist - Still Alive (VIP Mix) [Fokuz] Ziptnf - Encrypted Universe (1:07:47) 156MB ~320kbps Image credit to nellieanger.
