ACHTsam 1st Edition by Various Artists


Few years our artists have been experimenting with their music. In 2016 when ACHT has begun it music way, we have offered to you many of releases with a refined sensibility, the sound palette, labyrinthine melodies played on weird, blunted synths inside of live instruments sounds. On the border of 2017 and 2018 years, we want to introduce to you our new series of compilation, where we will be collecting most interesting and awesome tracks of ACHT. So let’s begin.

Track “Epithet” has a pristine sense of space, its narrative alternating between melodies of string and piano. LetKolben has created truly stunning moments apply avant-garde electronic techniques to the classical musical traditions. The most exciting thing about track “Epithet” is how it reflects all facets of Kolben’s sound, in part thanks to his savvy choice of sounds. Synths shoot upwards like fireworks in slow-motion together with parts of classical music are something to behold. Kolben is putting a melodic twist on minimal house, with abstract bleeps of pads and synths. This is great sound sculpture derived from mix of live instruments and textures of electronic music.

Like some of other his previous tracks, Giovanni Molinaro splits his music between hypnotic exercises of southern melodies and straighter club pleasures. “Sentimento” his most greatest and revealing record yet. This track has a slouchy rhythm, drawing for you by a guitar melody that snakes through glitch percussion. Music retains its minimal sensibilities, magical vocals and tense percussion that swell alongside loops and droning strings. Followers of Giovanni will be familiar with those elements and sounds, because he makes some of the most interesting and distinctive club music around.

Falki Hoz is an artist who likes to move forwards, to explore the space around him. His music always had attention, but on “Como Um Passaro” he makes his point in a subtly, new way. His track is a glossy peak-time jam destined for summer dance floors. Exquisite chimes lead a procession of plucked notes, unintelligible vocal and groove, which is simultaneously stomps and floats. “Como Um Passaro” hovers in this middle zone, touching on promising ideas but rarely giving them full shape. These are fitting sounds for a captivating music. Falki draws you deep into his world and applies layers of sound like a sedative.

Track “Neo Jungle” by AantiGen opens with a wave of harmonic resonance reminiscent of gongs, shakers, percussions and other instruments of mediation. An intellectual delirium of drums and swirls, which from time to time are going into impressive flurry of noise, filled with lush, patient atmospheres and slow, minimal melodies will bring same craziness into your mind. The track is in-tune with a lot of contemporary minimal techno tracks, but feels more spacious and dynamic, speeding through a bleepy landscape with smooth magnificence.

“Let it Go” is a debut of first solo work by Ratigar, a new talented name of electronic music. He made a very powerful stuff. Thick rhythm and bass patterns are joined by atmospheric and symphonic strings, before dense droning chords, wordless vocals and layer upon layer of intricate hand percussion form a dance floor meditation. Every sound feels huge and lingers in a pool of reverb, though Ratigar handles them with tenderness. He trades in a brand of grandiose electronic music as revered experimental outpost and this is right from the beginning gives to Ratigar a good level.

“Whole Point” is a minimal track by Mobile Soul System with a sense of house music, becoming ever more oddball as its wobbly rhythm picks up funny melodies and kick drums have entwined with muddy bass lines. High percussions and snippets of synths are beating together around in the mix as an ultra-subtle rhythm piece. It makes a sound a bit psychedelic but at the same time, melodies lift the music into warmer states to make a good balance. However, “Whole Point” the only track with a real melodic presence, will likely get the most spins.

Like others tracks of Omar Salgado, “Gypsy Tape” comprises brooding soundscapes steeped in dense atmospherics that swirl in hypnotising patterns. His artful mosaics of sounds will make to you nice and trippy feelings. Being a bit emotionally overbearing, the sound has punctuated by short crazy lines and chords that glimmer like a flashs. These short interjections work wonders on the energy level, sounding like a DJ cutting in snippets of another track. Soon it moves into a less foreboding mood. This is another of Omar’s sides, he can move from light to dark in a single move.

“Wau Frau” is the most striking track by Parallelian, nervous pads drift by as in a fever dream, the warm bassline and vigorous claps have joined to a steady kick. Clipped hats are the track’s ever-present ingredients, with synth touches, alternately spacey and tinkling, wafting in and out of the picture.

Whichever track you put the needle on, this compilation will bring about powerful dance floor moments. “ACHTsam” this is our aesthetic.
