    Pierre Bastien 'The Mecanoncentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien' PRE-ORDER

    £16.99

    Release Date: 27/10/2017

    We’re proud and excited to present a magical live recording from the legend that is Pierre Bastien, showcasing his mecanoid orchestra at its intricate best during a performance at Studio M, the historical studio-concert hall of Radio-Television of Vojvodina, Serbia.

    Around 1986, French composer and multi-instrumentalist Pierre Bastien started creating and building his own orchestra called Mecanium: an ensemble of musical automatons constructed from meccano parts and activated by electro-motors, that ‘play’ on acoustic instruments from all over the world.

    On this record the Mecanium plays amplified Meccano parts, drums, reeds, rubber bands, paper, nails and flutes whilst Pierre plays kundi, rubber band, prepared trumpet, video loops, nail violin and râbab.

    Recorded live at Studio M, Novi Sad, October 8, 2016.

    All compositions and live mix by Pierre Bastien Artwork by Stéphane Blanquet.

    Ariha Brass Quartet 'Ariha Brass Quartet' PRE-ORDER

    £16.99

    Release Date: 29/09/2017

    ‘’Ariha is a combination of 3 of the most innovating figures of modern day trumpet playing with tuba virtuoso Carl Ludwig Hubsch. The practitioners here, three trumpeters, Axel Dörner, Franz Hautzinger, Franz Hautzinger, and Carl Ludwig Hübsch hoisting a tuba, practice a unique approach to their instruments. All four musicians set aside a traditional approach to playing, substituting breathe for notes, abandoning a mouthpiece, and applying amplification to microscopic sounds.

    The quartet recorded this session in Beirut 2013, after a week's residency and performances. The four like-mind players open the disc with "Mar Mikhael in The Afternoon," the longest improvisation at 16-plus minutes. The fluttering of notes is accompanied by the snorting of unseen wild beasts and the coyote howls of brass. Their language, developed in the past 20 years or so, is a direct descendant from the European (as opposed to the American) systems and improvisers such as Derek Bailey, Eddie Prevost's AMM, and Paul Rutherford.

    Stripped of the conventions of noted music, the growls and micro-notes would not be out of place in sci-fi cinema as the backdrop to the silence of an orbiting space station. The squiggles and on/off switches of sounds inhabit the ghosts in the machines of the imagination, but also the rumble and hum of the earth's inner core. "Hamra Drinks" buzzes with the low (really low) bass reverberation and the looping notes of trumpet that take on an organic biologic shape.

    Each piece conjures a response be it a visual, an emotional, a fragrance, a flavor, or something tactile. Ahira Brass Quartet opens the listening experience to all five senses.’’ Mark Corroto in All About JazzOriginally released on CD by Beirut based Al Maslakh Recordings.

    O Morto 'The Forest, the People and the Spirits' PRE-ORDER

    £18.99

    Release Date: 29/09/2017

    Originally released as a limited tape in 2015, O Morto returns with a re-issue of his immersive electronic tryptic piece dedicated to the Ba'Aka people and its spirits, now on remastered (green) vinyl edition.

    ‘’Albeit his music is now closer to a soundscape composition approach, O Morto (aka Mestre André) actually started as a free improv / noise project in 2012. However, after releasing his debut “Memento Mori”, O Morto slowly began to drift away from the harshest soundscapes to seek for a new direction.

    He found it under the form of the polyphonic music played by Ba’Aka (a pygmy tribe that still lives in the Republic of Congo), and in a conceptualized image of Jengi - a forest spirit that feeds from the flesh of a sacrifice.

    Having this exotic array of influences in mind, O Morto collected samples, field-recordings and electronic sounds that would eventually appear in the dense (and sometimes enigmatic) triptych piece “The forest, the people and the spirits”.

    Originally composed for 8 digital tracks in the sonic research studio of SFU Burnaby (Canada), the record explores the possibilities of sound manipulation as a way to create rich, vivid and cinematic soundscapes. A noise maker by nature, André also plays in the excellent Älforjs and produces some of the most addictive beats as Notwan.

    Extremely proud to present a collection of 2 thoughtful EPs by Cairo based artist, Bosaina.Bosaina is a Syrian/Egyptian singer, songwriter & producer known for her work in the Kairo Is Koming Collective as well as her involvement in music-space-turned-club-night VENT.

    Her autobiographical work takes on a magical insular quality through field recordings and sentimentally driven compositions that unfold in stolen time.

    On both EPs presented here, her love affair with cinema, interrupted by decaying urban life (New York April-July 2013) and literature (Two Names Upon The Shore) serve as the focal points for her intimate productions; fragmented and wistful soundscapes that combine her affection for the piano with ambient textures from seashore to life underground.

    Praed 'Fabrication of Silver Dreams'

    £16.99

    Yet a new co production by Discrepant and Annihaya, Praed’s Fabrication of Silver Dreams on Vinyl. Founded by Lebanese visual artist and musician Raed Yassin and Swiss musician Paed Conca in 2006, Praed is a band whose musical oeuvre can be described as a mixture of Arabic popular music, free jazz, and electronics.

    Over the years, the duo has collaborated with renowned musicians from across the globe, including Axel Dörner and Johannes Bauer from Germany, Hans Koch from Switzerland, Takumi Seino and Maki Hachiya from Japan, and Stéphane Rives from France, among others.

    Praed's body of work explores the terrain of shaabi (Arabic popular music) and its interconnectedness with other hypnotic music genres. Since its inception, the duo has shown a keen interest in this music as a medium that reflects Egyptian society's complicated fabric.

    Through their research and thanks to numerous concerts in various Egyptian cities, Conca and Yassin discovered a strong cultural connection between shaabi sounds and the mouled music played in religious trance ceremonies.

    The hypnotizing psychedelic effect embedded in this genre incited Praed to explore other popular music from around the world that also employs forms of sonic delirium, such as free jazz, space jazz, and psychedelic rock, among others, and effectively incorporate these in their own musical concoctions. The Fabrication of Silver Dreams is the duo's fourth album.

    Carlos Casas 'Pyramid of Skulls'

    £18.99

    Ghosts from the future and spirits from the past collide in this sci fi field recording experiment.

    Inspired by the common task (Fedorov) and the people of Pamir in Tajikistan, filmmaker and sound artist Carlos Casas deconstructs far away sights and sounds to create a unique field recording experiment that equally worships past, present and future traditions.

    Music and sounds recorded and mixed under the spell of Nikolai Fedorov and inspired by the teachings of Jomboz Dushanbiev.

    Nikolai Fedorov thought the Pamir to be the cradle of humanity, the hidden and forgotten nest, a Pyramid of skulls that holded the secrets of past human kinship, He believed that most of Asian myths of human origin pointed the Pamir region as their inception.

    For the Chinese, Indian, and Semitic myths that that mountainous region of Central Asia, often referred to as 'the roof of the world' was the key to understand and start his resurrection plan.

    Visions Congo 'Mulago Sound Studio'

    £14.99

    Visions Congo is yet another moniker from Discrepant’s head honcho, Goncalo F Cardoso, taking Africa as a starting point to evoke the memories and re-imagined experiences of his 6-month stay in the region, back in 2015.

    Most of the recordings and compositions were done in the great lakes of Africa region of Uganda, Congo (DRC), Tanzania as well as the island of Zanzibar.

    Meshing impromptu in situ compositions with old dusty samples and his own field recordings is the go to modus operandi of Goncalo F Cardoso's various monikers (i.e. Gonzo, Papillon), creating deep layered 'exotic/alien' soundscapes of various moods and feels.

    Here’s another series of surreal and augmented field recordings that try to brace the listener with fresh alien authenticity before toying very pointedly with antiquated constructs by mixing avant-garde dustbin synth music with concrete field recordings and humorous, tongue in cheek intersections - not to ‘ever’ be taken too seriously.

    People Like Us 'Abridged Too Far'

    £14.99

    People Like Us is audiovisual collage artist Vicki Bennett, who has been making work available via CD, DVD and vinyl releases, radio broadcasts, performances, gallery exhibits and online streaming for 25 years.

    Since 1992, she has developed an immediately recognisable aesthetic repurposing pre-existing footage to craft audio and video collages with an equally dark and witty take on popular culture. She sees sampling and appropriation as folk art sourced from the palette of contemporary media and technology, with all of the sharing and cross-referencing incumbent to a populist form.

    Embedded in her work is the premise that all is interconnected and that claiming ownership of an “original” or isolated concept is both preposterous and redundant.

    Abridged Too Far is the first of a series of vinyl by Discrepant to celebrate this being the 25th year of People Like Us publishing albums.

    First released in digital-only form in 2004 exclusively for UbuWeb (ubu.com), this album includes Vicki’s John Peel session and performances for WFMU, amongst others, both from 2003, and now comes packaged with brand new artwork designed by Vicki Bennett

    The music moves very slowly through four movements: ‘’Reluctant Swimmer’’, ‘’Movies is Magic’’, Virtual Swimmer’’ and ‘’Dolphins’’. 'Floating in out of the exotic ether and disappearing like smoke, engulfed in the alien hugeness of nature... a very elegant set by a visionary artist.'

    Antologia de Música Atípica Portuguesa (Anthology of Atypical Portuguese Music) is a series of volumes focussing on new strains of Portuguese music with an (un)characteristic foot in the past musical traditions of the country. The aim being to re-evaluate its musical history, de-construct cliche´s and re-assemble preconceptions into a new and daring musical landscape.

    Vol1 explores o Trabalho (Work), various work songs both at land and sea are freely re-interpreted in a multitude of ways. Including the vocal tape deconstructions of Live Low, the ethereal pastoral drifts of Negra Branca (Marlene Ribeiro from Gnod), free jazz experimentations of EITR (Pedro Lopes & Pedro Sousa) as well as a very rare solo outing by one half of Yong Yong, Luar Domatrix (Rodolfo Brito).

    Also featuring on Vol1 are the digital voice manipulations of Tiago Morais Morgado, visceral guitar exorcisms by Filipe Felizardo, exoteric chants by Gonzo, Von Calhau's mystic re-interpretations of lost pieces and an exclusive composition by musician and instrument builder Peter Forest (Pedro Silva) dedicated to a long lost field working man's song, Maria Cavaca.

    Disquiet tells the story of a child born to a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, war torn and fractured by greed.''A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men.

    No one remembers the days before the bleakness. It would be impossible to recall the old world, if it wasn’t for the reminders.

    Ruins... despair... echoes of madness...and in this maelstrom of decay, I was born.'' Organ tones and broken exoteric bumps coexist with dark ambient themes and cavernous beats. Remnants of wry memories, smothered dreams, dim visions of a world that never was.

    Rizan Said 'King of Keyboard'

    £18.99

    Special vinyl edition collaboration between London's Discrepant & Beirut's Annihaya.

    ''There is no other Syrian dabke musician that has enjoyed the local, regional, national, and international recognition that Rizan Said has, and for that, the world is lucky. Rizan is a musical ambassador from a disappeared Syria, and this is not to be taken lightly.

    Once upon a time, not too long ago, Syria was a culturally diverse country possessing a certain unity. A place not synonymous with barbarism and savagery. Far from the capital of Damascus, the northeast of the country, known as the Jazeera, was rich with history and culture.

    Rizan was a musical prodigy from a young age – a gifted player of percussion and reed instruments before a wealth of synthesizers began flooding Syria in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Steadfast on the Syrian cassette album circuit at the time, Rizan the boy wonder was already sending his signals out from the Jazeera frontier, thanks to a partnership with local producer Zuhir Maksi.

    It can be said, that without Rizan Said, a good number of Syrian singers from the 1990s onward might never have been heard – most notably Omar Souleyman, a collaborator with Rizan for two decades.

    Where synthesizers can bring a certain artifice and death to the sound of music, Rizan’s torrential speed and flair on the keys bring new life to Syrian and Kurdish sounds – lightning fast as required – respectfully forcing the component sounds of folkloric dabke into the next level.

    These sounds were indeed designed for dance, but when you’re at a Syrian wedding party, you begin to understand that this has been going on for centuries, before electro, disco, hipsters, and orientalists.

    This is the updated sound of the ages, where hand drums and reed flutes are now emulated and pounded out on Korg keyboards. Run it through your favorite amplifier, and keep it in the red for authenticity.'' - Mark Gergis – April, 2015

Originally released back in 2006 by Colombian label La Distritofonica, the limited CD-only album showcased a rare style of "Abstract folk music" inspired on the experiments of some Bogota collectives from the time (2005-2006).

    Recorded and composed in Copenhagen between 2005/06 by founding and core member Eblis Alvarez (vocals, guitars & electronics) each song is intended to explore a different energy and mood, from the pure abstract rhythms, to concrete vallenato, cumbia and currulao. Alvarez explains further:
    I was looking for a very abstract image of these influences, working a lot with the sound, but not in an electronic music fashion - looking for mainly weird results in rhythm and texture. My way of playing the instruments is not quite usual either, making a lot of small noises and deformed melodies.”

    £16.99

    The artist formerly known as Ergo Phizmiz releases his first work under his birth name, DW Robertson's Disco Caroussel, a demented ode to the power of mechanical music.

    ''Everybody knows that mechanical music is the highest form of entertainment, that's why the fairground, that age old uber-entertainment, rang with the chaotic splendour of Barrel Organs, Orchestrions, Bellenoens and Serinettes.

    In the 20th century, as the delicate mechanisms of automata fell out of favour to the machismo of electricity, all the music-boxes left the funfair, to be usurped by Euro-Techno. "Disco Carousel" is an attempt to redress this balance with a little bit of time travel, a little bit of tlc, and atomic fusion between the discreet windings of the Pianola and the whirring innards of the computing-machine. Each piece is "Programme Music", and comes with a title that should take you straight to the electro-mechanical fairground you've always dreamed of.

    You can ride the big dipper, the ghost train, ace the shooting gallery, win a prize. In the safe knowledge that, all around your head, in multiple permutations, the highest form of entertainment is taking place.''

    Blood Stereo are Dylan Nyoukis and Karen Constance, a British institution, the sound complete immersion for people who don't immerse easily. Idiot twins Burchill and Slim may behave as though they own Sussex, but Constance and Nyoukis are immune to their surroundings, making livid eyes at confused glitter vixens up and down this squalid Isle.

    Hair & Treasure are Alex Jones and Gonçalo F Cardoso, a prankster randy dust duo from nowhere dwelling on tape loops and webbed finger piano ballads.

    The material was culled from a mound of who cares electro-acoustic improv sessions as an offering to the associated deities of the zwieback buttermilk trade.
