phatic musk – some new releases

We’ve had two releases out on phatic musk  this past two months, which is amazing considering we’d previously done 1 a year!

Analog by BLACKCLASSICAL + THE REVENANT SEA

Analog is a C40 release with the added bonus of receiving a vintage copy of Analog Sci-Fi zine to read whilst listening.

The Second release is in conjunction with a subscription service called dronestocodeby.com . This release was limited to 5 mp3 players custom skinned loaded with over 14 hours of drones created by apkallu of enmerkar – the subscription service will be offering over 4 hours of new drones per month for the price of £3.  That’s a lot of drones for your pound!

ID Situations : Laica release phatic musk

ID Situation is dedicated to the millions of unknown faces caught on hours of grainy CCTV images every day, to all the footage that will be stored away and never looked at again, the boxes full of old VHS tapes of empty streets and hard drives loaded up with hidden shop corners

 

New release on phatic musk ID Situations by Laica –  with remixes by Production Unit (Broken 20)  and decadnids.

Following on from the Uschi-No-Michi release there was a bit of a challenge from a packaging design point of view – so we’ve gone ultra minimal and opted for a matt black bubble envelop with a clear sticker.

phatic musk :: Uschi-No-Michi :: Ameratsu

In 2004 I started pathmusick with alex cortex.  Our aim was to set up a net label that allowed artists to put out their material with freedom.  We trusted the artists we asked to join pathmusick so we had very few restrictions with regards to what they released.  Over the 9 years pathmusick has had well over 100 releases and the downloads are still going strong with around 1 new release per month.

Last year I decided I’d like to try to release some stuff in physical formats.  It was 10 years since the release of the hermetech records compilation Word Become Flesh, so time to give it another go!

I decided that pathmusick deserved a physical form and phatic musk was born.  The first release was going to be Uschi-No-Michi .  She’d previously released her Blue Light EP on pathmusick and had great downloads, and I really like her music.

I’ve always wanted to use old 8 inch floppy disk as a container for a 7 inch and thought it would be perfect for this release.  So after much searching I was able to find a good source of enough disks to use as packaging.  With the old hand written labels and the different company branding on the different disks, it makes for a one off package when hand stamped and numbered.

So, please go and buy the wonderful 7 inch single from here

Pathmusick :: 2012

This post is a long time coming.  It’s August already, and the new pathmusick site went live at the start of the year!

Pathmusick has been around since 2004, initially it was a free mp3 net label.  Times have changed, and so have attitudes, and as such we decided it would be much better if we put out releases as .flac files.  This gives people a better audio experience, and also uses a none proprietary audio format.

With the new site, comes some brilliant new releases.  Such as the Uschi-No-Michi Blue Lights EP, with remixes from Production Unit, Adrian Carter, and decadnids, plus a brand new track by Uschi-No-Michi.

pathmusick :: Free MP3 label since 2004


Pathmusick is back up after well over a year of downtime, reason for it being down for so long was due to some licensing issues with artist who had consented to their releases being on there but the organisations they had registered with regarding copyrights and licensing meant that pathmusick would have been liable to pay a cost.  As the label is essentially a free mp3 label the organisers had to make changes to cover their backs.

Pathmusick has been around since 2004 putting out a mixture of electronic music.  The artists involved are a varied bunch coming from different countries.  There is probably something somewhere in the catalog  for people who are interested in electronic music.

There will be more releases in the future.

Music for Real Airports :: The Black Dog

Here we have the new album from electronic musicians The Black Dog. I managed to download the release (bought digital version from their digital store — click ) and I am not disappointed.

In the past I was a huge fan of all things ambient.  Spending many an hour listening to albums by such artists as Pete Namlook, the Irresistible Force, The Orb and the likes.  It’s been a long time since I delved back into the world of ambient music and I have to say that Music For Real Airports is a perfect place to revisit the genre.  The album itself takes you on a journey, compelling you to listen from start to finish (something that seems to have been lost in this digital world of mp3′s and play-lists, something I really miss), it does credit to The Black Dog that they have managed to create such a voyage within this album.

The album was created from some 200 hours of field recordings captured during touring.  And you can hear the ambient textures as a back drop to subtle electronic melodies and beats.  This album really does capture the experience of modern day air travel, with moments of anxiety and elements of the mundane (not that the music is mundane, but it invokes the feeling of waiting and the drudgery with in a terminal).

Because the album is mixed continuously, there are no breaks between the tracks – to some extent it doesn’t really matter about the track titles themselves (but if you check them you’ll see they outline a journey in itself from start to finish, with titles such as – M1, Passport Control, Strip Light Hate and finishing back at the Business Car Park), one track that really captured my attention, even sending tingles down my spine, was Delay 9.  This track stands out with it’s melodies and it’s melancholy it ticked all the right boxes for me when it comes to emotional content within music.

I’ll leave the commentary with regards to the comparison with Eno’s 70′s album, Music for Airports, as plenty of other blogs and reviews have done this.  For those who love electronic music go buy this album.  I look forward to trying to catch one of the live shows.
