Title: One Remixes
Catalog #: [one027]
Release Date: 2006/06/19
Collaboration has always been an important factor here at One – whether it’s through music, technology or artwork. In this spirit the return of Plosive brings us a showcase of covers, mixes and overhauls of many favorite releases from the past couple of years – including reworkings of Bad Loop, Jack Haberfield, Iua, Emil Klotzsch, Paranerd, Partikel and Recue.
With much of the source material in hand, they have been made his own through complete reinterpretation – lending to their individuality and personal touch in mood and style. Too often these days original works are masqueraded and passed off as mixes – here the art of the remix is key and in usual Plosive form the sounds are heavily rhythmic and melodic – focused through an alchemy of Dub, IDM, Techno and more.

Title: Cold reflect
Catalog #: [one014]
Release Date: 2004/10/07
Hailing from Canada, Paranerd’s songs individually reveal themselves like being lost in specific thought. Continuously reflective themes rather than catchy clips with the occasional exclamation point. Unraveling the most vulernable moments. While many electronic musicians utilize repetition and hooks, he has an introverted and personal approach to writing that puts you in a position of wondering where the layers of melody or mood will go next.
As so many favorite albums are created for so many of us, “cold reflect” is the kind of music that someone can identify with. A fitting title for such an emphatic release… And while his style may not be exclusive, his sound is intriguing, personal, and recognizable.
01 – caught your tumble
02 – rebound
03 – slumber lovers
04 – odd loss
05 – useless melody
06 – vanilla empathy
07 – too mushroom
08 – anyone will do

Title: Little Shames
Catalog #: [dot9.02]
Release Date: 2003/03/20
Re-Release Date: 2004/01/15
Paranerd (Pinkj) came out with ‘little shames’ in March 2003, a month after the demise of dot9, so to most of you already familiar with his music this re-release should be a treat.
Like the previous dot9 re-release, this is a continuous .ogg mix running just over 22 minutes. Although coming from a very familiar digital sound Paul brings a very organic feel to his music, which makes it feel unjustified or unfair to label it as low-fi, bit or chip-tune music. Constantly and quickly evolving from the simple elements it’s constructed with, ‘little shames’ rewards itself with multiple listens – each time revealing something pleasant and new.
01 – little shames
