£16.99"Gancio Cielo 2 - Il Gruppo Respingi Comete"" is the second chapter of Gancio Cielo, a saga by Francesco Cavaliere, a fascinating artist/musician whom Hundebiss introduced to the public in 2010.Visit product page →
This episode explores a world where comets and cosmic stones pour down from the sky - ¦ Half-fish half-agate creatures collect debris while others, while floating on pneumatic tyres, glide onto wet surfaces like on bob skates, trying to catch the ones fallen into the water. Here we find groups of kids, spazzini cosmici, who with their mineral gloves refract rocks and comets back into the sky.
Oozing darkness and mistery, Francesco Cavaliere displays a wide array of mind-bending electronics and sound manipulation granting a really unique listening experience that submerges and puzzles the unexpecting listener: nearly indecipherable spoken word bits that gently move inside your brain, almost as a whispered nursery-rhyme, quickly vanishing among the soft curl of fumes fragrancing.
Quoting Boomkat's review on his first chapter ""it's quite possible to decode a transmission from dimensions parallel to our own, although comprehending their glyphic form is a whole other matter.

£16.99Gancio Cielo is the first full length of Francesco Cavaliere, an artist we had the pleasure to introduce to the public some years ago with a legendary tape called 'Neverending Somersault'.Visit product page →
After years of live performing and an intense studio work, Francesco developed a unique style using his voice as main source of sounds and an incredible archive of home made sound FX. Gancio Cielo is a magical space standing on its own, where a fantastic night-time story combined with exotic electronic music, is narrated, unfolding from an imaginary universe in which alchemy and science fiction come together.
Cavaliere has developed a veritable dictionary to catalogue the strange beings that inhabit this universe, undefined by reference points: hybrids of objects, minerals, animals, plants, planets, trails, cosmic objects and physical and perceptual phenomena.

Los Angeles musician JAWS has his third full-length album Object Dom forthcoming on Milan experimental imprint Hundebiss.
The tracks of this new record are a sort of broken rave song, littered with open seams and loose ends tangled amongst themselves in DIY fashion. Within that framework, it seems to intentionally mix up positive and negative feelings through its instrumentation: familiar synth pulls and screeches characteristic of unbridled delight on the dancefloor are coated in a certain kind of messy rumble evocative of the feeling of wanting to throw up.
Interestingly, Object Dom is thematically engaged with the politics of online notifications: 'It considers the conscious practice of social media sharing and repositions the power dynamics as a one sided command to attention and invariably, subservience," Girardin said "The song takes tropes of Dutch rave, breakbeats, and hoover patches, squeezing them into a maximal pop-songs format of call and response, attempting to sonically recreate the dopamine rush of online notifications."

£16.99In the face of devastating violence, how are you responding. I think deeply about the moment we're in and am searching for a response that's not blatant or overt, but more-so inviting the listener to contemplate their own mindset.Visit product page →
The music here is an expression, my response to surviving these traumatic, unpredictable times. Most of the new sounds came out of the experience of living in Berlin and traveling around Europe.
As a black African existing and moving in predominantly white spaces, you are under continuous scrutiny and harassment. White supremacy and racism have a certain gradation of intimate terrorism, and the darker your skin the more endangered you are.
"BrÃ¢ncuÈ'ž¢i sculpting Beyoncé in gold lamé" is a line from Mike Ladd's song 'Blonde Negress' from the album Negrophilia. The album was inspired by Petrine Archer-Straw's book of the same name (with the subtitle 'Avant-Garde Paris and Black Culture in the 1920s'). The book explores the Paris art world's embrace of black American and African culture ' and its co-option of black art and culture, which played heavily into Art Deco, Cubism, jazz, etc.
I read the book some years back, but I love how Mike Ladd warps it, drawing a long line between Beyonce and Brancusi, whose Sleeping Muse was inspired by African masks" Lamin Fofana is an electronic producer and artist. His instrumental electronic music contrasts the reality of our world with what's beyond and explores questions of movement, migration, alienation, and belonging. He is from Sierra Leone, lived in Guinea, United States, and currently located in Berlin.
Press quotes for previous releases:
'Fofana, who was born and raised in Sierra Leone and Guinea, runs the Sci-Fi & Fantasy label'home to, among other things, Lotic's first releases. His own work is part of a dialogue between techno, as it's broadly understood, and more abstracted forms. With the Another World EP, he attempts to link techno back to the real world, to bridge aesthetics with socio-economics, with ocean currents, with stale bread and dirty water. It's right there in the subtitle of the 3rd track: '(Realist Mix)'.' Pitchfork
'At one moment, it is riot-space; at another, thinking-space; at yet another, chill-out-and-recharge-space; and at yet another, historical-space. At all times it is a delicate synthesis of multifarious strands and an enterprise in gauging dirt patches in this mad moment, in exposing little bits of hard ground on which our desires for another world, certainly for the end of this one, can continue to find traction.' e-flux Journal
'Fofana paired techno beats and nebulous pads to create instrumentals that seek to contrast the reality of our world with what's beyond.' The Fader

£18.99In his article 'If Israeli soldiers start shooting, we won't stop the interview,' Tom Faber, a journalist for The Guardian, describes Shabjdeed and Al Nather's music as omnipresent in the air: 'I hear them everywhere.Visit product page →
Al Nather's sleek productions pump out of car speakers in the Jordanian desert, and Shabjdeed's raps tumble from the bars of Haifa. And, of course, you hear it all in their home - the tumultuous city of Ramallah.'
In August 2019, with the title 'Sindibad el Ward - Ø"Ù Ø¯Ø¨Ø§Ø¯ Ø§ÙžÙˆØ±Ø¯', they released one of the most astonishing hip hop albums of the last decade. Their collective BLTNM (pronounced 'blatinum') is a distinguishing voice for hip hop in the Arab world.
Shabjdeed's lyrics are unusual and abstract. Interviewed by Arab music platform Ma3azef he declares: 'Why aren't we capitalizing on misery?
1) It's shameful to do so
2) Palestinians by nature are proud of being Palestinian. [ - ¦]
We are used to how things are here, I sing mainly for Palestinians, so it would make no sense - we don't sit around saying look how miserable we are.'[ - ¦] The days of singing about the war are over.'
Sindibad El Ward has quickly reached the status of classic, with his fresh urgence and unpolished poetic is considered for many the 'Illmatic' of the arab world.
