I have been wanting to buy some releases from this label for a long time, but I never seem to come around to do it... now that has to be changed, so now I need help to pick some :unsure:

 

I have a limited budged so I can't just buy them all as some might suggest but I can afford a few 2-3 CDs... So which of the availble once should I get (I will buy it through Ultimae's shop )

My favourites from Databloem are

 

Collection 1 : Opening

5 long ambient journeys through space, very nice stuff. A great place to start.

 

The Circular Ruins - Realm of Possibility, Empathy Test & The Alchemy Concert

The Circular Ruins are my favourite artist on the label. Lush ambient soundscapes :D

 

Cymphonic - Strataradialis

This is one of my favourite albums from 2007, very visual :)

 

I'd choose from these if you fancy the very ambient sounds or

 

Waki - Music For Waki People

or

Mutagene - Sleeping Possessions

 

if you want more beats & energy

how are they compare to !Escape Kit! ? same style?

 

Not really, it's glitch ambient, might be some resemblance but it's more minimal I would say. Haven't listened much to Escape kit so it's hard for me to compare aswell. All I know is that I prefer them over Escape kit, you just have to hear out, gently down the stream, second track! It's fucking awesome.

 

edit: went on to somnias website, yes there is much resemblance, you'll definitely like them if you like escape kit.

There are some good tracks on that retrospective. I am also thinking of doing a databloem heavy ambient mix soon too which should have a fair bit of TCR :)

The Alchemy Concert & Falling Into The Sky are fantastic. 2 albums I enjoy time and time again :)

Land Of The Blind & Realm Of Possibility are merely great :P I probably like Land Of The Blind a bit more.

Cool! Today I received an order I placed at DataObscura's web shop

 

I got

 

The Circular Ruins - Confluence

The Winterhouse - Sanctuary

Robert Davies - Terrestre

Nunc Stans and Mystified - One Thousand Dreams

Nunc Stans - The Unnamable

Robert Davies - Gallery of Spirits

Nunc Stans - Meridian

The Winterhouse - Lost

Nunc Stans - Timeless

 

and Various - Portraits although it's not a DataObscura release. I have been listening to these all day and I am very happy with the music here. Nunc Stans is great and Robert Davies - Gallery Of Spirits is even better than I was hoping :)
