    Fugenn & The White Elephants – Archetype Zero

    ,

    Fugenn & The White Elephants is the solo project by the Japanese artist, Shuji Saito. Making dance music since 2004 as a DJ and artist under the name of “SOMA”, he represents a new generation of up and coming beatmakers in Japan right now and is widely regarded as one of the leading lights of the new electronica scene there at present.

    As a member of “Trench Warfare” (an underground party crew in Chiba), he regularly performs lives in Tokyo, Kyoto, Shiga and Nigata. In 2008, he changed his project name to “Fugenn & The White Elephants” and remixes with “Headphone Science”, “Koen Park” and more have been a success not only in Japan, but beyond as well. In April 2011, his 1st album was released on the famous Japanese electronica label “PROGRESSIVE FOrM”. He also recently participated in YMO’s tribute album “YMO REWAKE”.

    His long-awaited 2nd full album “Prays” was released on May 5, 2012 on PROGRESSIVE FOrM. His NKR debut ‘Archetype Zero’ consists of some of his earlier, harsher work which Ian Hawgood (the curator of NKR and a longtime friend) fell in love with when they first met back in the day.

    Studiocanoe – Soothe

    ,

    Studiocanoe is Temujin Doran, an audio-visual artist based in London. He likes to play piano, guitar and old toy instruments, and record interesting sounds whilst he is travelling. He is the brother of a genius.

    ‘Soothe’ was one of the first records we received which helped to found the ethos of NKR – namely, to release beautiful, soulful music no matter what the genre. Whilst I have to be careful about saying such things, ‘Soothe’ is my wife’s favourite record across the labels to date and is actually the most listened on my old iPod. So there you go. This is the first in a series of audio-visual collaborations with Tem over the coming years. Thank you – Ian Hawgood

    Maps & Diagrams ‎– The Town Beneath The Sea

    ,

    So there I am sat at work one day, minding my own business, when I get this email, all humble-like and asking if I would mind checking out not one record, but two. The email was from a certain Tim Martin who just so happens to be a co-worker of mine and a very good friend, but who I was pretty sure didn’t play music unless he was drunk and then it was just table banging. Then it slowly dawned on me that it was a totally different Tim Martin – the genius behind the Maps and Diagrams moniker.

    Maps & Diagrams ‎– Lights Will Call On You

    ,

    If neurologists could download the sounds of the synapses to a handful of brief, representative MP3 files, what would they sound like?

    Not the inner voice. Too theatrical, too bent on rehearsing the next speech or recapitulating the last one. Think past that, to the background hiss of capillary blood near the ears: a known quantity, where we shouldn’t reside too long. Further still are the loops and echoes of remembered sounds, voices, and songs, and the way those compete with the macro-lens immediacy of real noises around us, and those noises we create: the hum of appliances. The benign scatting of wind chimes. The clink of glasses. In short, what if we could stream the subjective music of simply being human? What would researchers name the first of these files? The first six minutes of strictly neurological music? How about something like “Her Thoughts Are Her Own?”

    He Can Jog – Norwood, Wisconsin

    ,

    He Can Jog is the work of Erik Schoster, a computer musician from Wisconsin. That is about all he likes to say about his work, understated as ever. The truth is he has been one of my absolute favourite artists for a number of years now and his Middlemarch release on the ever wonderful Audiobulb label is still one of the most played in my house.

    Naoto Taguchi – Nostalgia

    ,

    Naoto Taguchi, originally from Sapporo and currently living in Tokyo, is an audiovisual artist with a strong musical background (having played the piano since his early childhood) who is also interested in programming, photography, design in general and spinning records as a DJ and beatmaking.

    He locates himself between minimalist electronica, dubmatics and quirky experimental sound. ‘Nostalgia’ is his international debut and shows a wonderful sense of detail in his structures, whilst never betraying his inate melodic progressions. This is one of the most fun but delicately made records we have put out to date.

    offthesky: Subtle Trees (CD)

    ,

    As a sort of pantheist, or at least an artist who finds great stories hiding in the vast visual subtleties of nature – Subtle Trees is a classical music collage as much as it is an homage to classical music. It’s core is created through sounds gathered in the owl hours by sampling ancient instruments whose cores were derived from the trees of nature. These sounds were layered like lichen on an ancient pantheistic sculpture.

    Haruki – Falling (CD)

    ,

    Haruki is the pseudonym of composer/sonic artist Boris Snauwaert from Ghent, Belgium, who creates sonic environments through the precise, meditated amalgamation of a diverse variety of sounds, both musical and non-musical.

    Ten and Tracer – Friendless Now (CD)

    ,

    Jonathan Canupp is a name you should know but probably don’t, but then again might. He records under Ten and Tracer and I’ve been into his records for ages and ages now. Back when I was checking out early net label releases, Jonathan came up as one of two people whose work in their entirety I just fell in love with. And funny how he actually works with the other artist now and lives in the same damn city – the person being a certain Jason Corder (offthesky, Juxta Phona) no less. He makes wonderful IDM music and in fact I may have asked him years ago now to make us a ‘meaty beaty’ record. And along he comes with the very cheek of making some sublimely evolved, subtly woven record using violin, tape machines, guitars, maybe some keyboards and other stuff too. Friendless Now is a beautifully realised work, and one of my favourite Ten and Tracer releases to date.
