Dmitriy Rodionov Experience 1 + 1 = 1 (Part I)
Ekca Liena is an alias of Daniel W J Mackenzie which concentrates on the celestial, melancholic and sometimes blissful side of ambient music. Over the range of his enchanting, mainly long-form compostions there is a clear influence from ritual psychedelic, noise, doom, post-rock and at times modern classical arrangement. His discography has seen work on a variety of labels including Dead Pilot, Small Doses and Entropy and with an enormous amount of material currently in the works this list is hoped to expand.
Limited edition of 100 that comes in a numbered handmade sleeve, with an insert containing a personal message from Chisman introducing the EP… Flaming Pines’s first release for 2012 is a magical new EP by Seth Chrisman called ”Aetherdrift,, Do You Copy”. Chrisman hails from New Mexico in the USA, but drew heavily on sonic material gathered on a trip to Costa Rica to produce this memorable EP. Stumbling around after dark armed with a tape recorder and a radio, Chrisman said he returned home inspired by the ”lovely cacophony” produced by the mixture of natural sounds and fragmented AM radio transmisions. ”Aetherdrift” delicately and powerfully conveys both the euphoria and disorientation of travel — the sense of drift and near disembodiment experienced by every traveller as they arrive as a disconnected outsider to a new country. It is a subtle and sophisticated work which, with its emphasis on geography, travel and connections, is a terrific fit with the preoccupations of the Flaming Pines label, and we are very proud to be associated with it.
Limited edition numbered run of 150 copies + download code… Hibernate Recordings kick off a new collaboration series with an ep from Isnaj Dui & Karina ESP. The goal for the series is to get two different artists on our roster to put their heads together to have some fun and do what they love best. Isnaj Dui is Katie English, based in North London, UK. Her work in the past has graced labels such as Home Normal, Smallfish, Rural Colours and her own imprint FBox Records. With a history of recording and musical study that spans back to 1995, Katie’s current sound is characterised by her use of flute, particularly the bass flute. This is generally a rarely used instrument but is used frequently throughout her work as a defining feature. Add to this a few home-made instruments and electronics and you have the very distinctive sound of Isnaj Dui, a project that has been active since 2004.
Limited edition of 100 numbered / handmade sets (five 3″ CD’s) that include inserts with personal messages from the artists The Boats, Seth Chrisman, Savaran, All N4tural and Dan Whiting… The second and final set of EPs in the Rivers Home series. This series celebrates the wonder of rivers at a time when many of them are particularly vulnerable. Many of us dream about rivers, ride along rivers, take ferries along rivers and sit on river banks. This series is a musical exploration of the ways we influence rivers and they influence us. It is about the stories we tell about rivers, the experiences we have of them, and the memories they have left us with. This the final set of Rivers Home sees The Boats, Seth Chrisman, Savaran, All N4tural and Dan Whiting each present an ode to a different piece of water on their own three inch CD.
