Catalog #:
dt006
Release Date:
2005/08/10


early reflections is an inspiring introduction into the expanding ambient world of liam skogland (aka (val)liam).

ambient music has always played a humble role in the electronic music scene. high levels of gratitude and respect are given to those producers that have the creativity and patience to evolve a genre plagued with periodicity. skogland is quickly on his way to becoming one of those artists.

begin your adventure with “orange horizon“. picture an enchanting sunrise over a calm and secluded lake, on a warm august morning. lush, balmy pads play a familiar role throughout the entire release, creating a strong foundation for new layers of sound to tickle the senses.

the uplifting naturistic moods in “avalon” give the listener an effortless enjoyable experience that carries well into the next few tracks. compelling elements of acoustic + ibanez guitar, heard in “wonder” and “distance“, act as a refreshing alternative to the atmospheric leads presented in most of the compositions.

early reflections“, the ep’s title track, delivers and sets itself apart from the rest. treat yourself to pulsating kicks and deep synthetic progressions as (val)liam concludes his journey in hypnotic fasion. celebrate dewtone’s 6th release, a modest example of yet another young canadian artist breaking out of his musical shell.

v/a – elevation {dt005}

Artist: v/a
Title:
elevation
Label:
Dewtone
Catalog #:
dt005
Release Date:
2005/04/07


dewtone’s debut ep brings forth a minute, yet tasteful selection of electronic composition.

tom dinchak’s solo project, “phortran” starts the release off with a chilly melancholy lullaby. wrapped in deep sweeps and laced with that lovely idm-style beat programming we expect to find in most of his music. quickly, newcomer quone kicks things into high gear with a tactful, upbeat, glitch-trip thriller entitled, “seeking new advances”.

headphone science, aka david craig (founder of illmatik vibes), makes his first appearance on dewtone with a piece called, “endoh michiyo”. captivating melodic atmospheres and trademark broken-break rhythms. then settle comfortably into your chair as bend, sinister deliver again with another delicious jazzy dew drop titled, “leave her good graces”.

we are also proud to re-introduce an aspiring electronic composer named james zdrowski (otherwise known as ontagon). elevation’s dreamy outro track “forget to remember” serves up touching, quality vocal work and resonated progression on a warm plate of soothing pads + synth. released originally on his break-out ep entitled, “forgetful“. superb.
