ARCHIVES has another pleasant release for us in the forms of Sanguine by aspect. This small release packs a great feeling into its 4 tracks (3 versions of the track Hk, as well as the title track, Sanguine). This is one solid EP, currently available via Bandcamp.

Favorite Track: 3. Hk. (Dub)

Our long time favorite artist, Sage Taylor, debuts on Archives with a full EP under his latest project ‘aspect.’. You should know him for being the man behind some of the greatest dub techno and ambient releases of the last years as Textural Being or Parallelism. ‘Sanguine’ expands his color palette with a joyful atmosphere filled with lush chord lines and includes also three different versions of the addictive Hk.

Aphelion, by DT-90

a0488455334_10

H y p e r c h i l l  creeps into my mind when I think of a way to describe this little 4-track album. The nature of the ambient textures that sit behind the understated rhythms gives the project a unique atmosphere! The sound is impressive, and so are the emotions it supports. Highly recommended listen.

Italian duo Dt-90 is the latest addition to Archives with their dark deep aesthetic. ‘Aphelion’ presents a great combination of noisy textures, misty ambiences and huge chord lines in four tracks, ranging from drone cuts to pure dub techno tracks.

ARCHIVES brings us a pleasantly deep project from French producer Audub. It’s wonderfully relaxed and bright, perfect summertime grooves. With three tracks plus a remix, this is a classy little release that deserves some attention.

Favorite Track: 2. Northern Shore (Part 2)

French artist Audub knows well how to mix spacious ambient lines with more usual dub sounds to capture a very special atmosphere, well represented on his first work for Archives.

Using the famous Pleiades as inspiration, Dave Marian takes us into a great jouney, presenting a broad spectrum of deep and dub sounds through four original cuts full of subtle chords with endless delays and intriguing pad sounds.
