Robinson Crusoe

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
St. Petersburg seeker Vladimir Karpov's first ever release as X.Y.R., initially issued on a almost-private run of 30 tapes via his own Singapore Sling Tapes imprint back in 2012, is finally getting the vinyl treat it deserved, thanks to the Mixed Up label out of Italy. "Robinson Crusoe" takes its name and sonic prerogative from the infamous novel by Daniel Defoe, and somehow anticipated of some years the New Age revival explosion which we all have witnessed in the recent times. Here X.Y.R. established the fundamentals for a signature sound he has then developed over the years with massive releases for the likes of Los Angeles's Not Not Fun and London's 12th Isle imprints, while also appearing in the unmissable Jon Hassell-inspired compilation by Optimo Music, alongside masters of ambient music such as Ariel Kalma, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and Hassell himself. Listening to Robinson in retrospective is now a refreshing experience, a different trip on its own: far from being just recollected as revival New Age music, and more comfortable with some strains of Italian Library from the '70 (from the nautical atmospheres of Biologia Marina to the arid soundscapes of Il Deserto by Egisto Macchi) here Karpov fills both the island and the novel's plot with a peaceful yet obscure pathos, mixing wild nature field recordings with some of the most beautiful, outspoken and bold melodies - as stated above, not just average "furniture music" for designers. The tracks sequence opens a full sensorial deprivation for the listener, who might casually finds himself caught between catchy motives and more abstract and transitional vignettes. Using nothing more than a vintage analog Formanta-Mini synth and a couple of pedals and loop stations, X.Y.R. has created one of the most singular ambient album of this decade, now fully remastered from tapes and issued for public consumption. Get lost.
Your Planet Is Next - A New Smile
Your Planet Is Next
A New Smile
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Mixed Up)
10,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Studio Barnhus regular Your Planet Is Next makes his album debut on Mixed Up with his most personal and varied outing yet. Keeping his hazy acid house swing as main palette, here YPIN expand its vision adding elements of pastoral ambient and downtempo over his well-honed mixture of 303 basslines and skeletal rhythms. Somewhere between the early LFO and Sweet Exorcist bleep era ('Molten Smile', 'Powernap'), with extra dose of No Wave ('Huggteknik') and stoned ambient ('Trainspotting'). Best viewed as a full LP listen, but every tune is a winner. Little YPIN on cover too. Smile.
