Randomajestiq – Deepmove Mode EP {[one03]}

Artist: Randomajestiq
Title:
Deepmove Mode EP
Label:
 One
Catalog #:
[one03]
Release Date:
2004/02/24


His mixes are solid, well thought out and it shows almost instantly. ‘Deepmove Mode’ is less ecclectic and more melodic groove than his previous releases with kahvi, kikapu, autoplate, here and more.

However, he doesnt fully detach the listener from those releases as he picks up as abrasively as he left off (penikolada) then glides in with a song from Evolver (now a part of randomajestiq) which seemes to set the pace until hitting the groove’s ground floor with gravity 0 and taking off with this sound even further on Island 4d (easily the stand out track). The feel this time around is more at home on a dance floor than on stage with a laptop, but remains genuinely equal inside the headphones.


Tracklist:
01 – penikolada
02 – jazzmachinn(evolver)
03 – gravity 0
04 – island 4d

Relative Q – Beauty and Her Broken Things {[one02]}

Artist: Relative Q
Title:
Beauty and Her Broken Things
Label:
 One
Catalog #:
[one02]
Release Date:
2004/02/03


A familiar face from the staple Chill productions release group and our 101 compilation, we’re proud to have relative q drop his latest on us.

All the elements are here and well presented. The overall harmony strikes one with a rise in reflection and memory, pain and triumph, failure and success. A good example of electronic music’s instrumental replacement of the vocalist where melody and accentuations seemly influence memory and emotion more than mere words can… Creating a world and telling the story of the individual all at the same time.


Tracklist:
01 – this child born in winter
02 – apart from the one
03 – dredging the river
04 – split stitches
05 – i knew a girl with the world in her hand
06 – paths
07 – she never even said goodbye
08 – your distant eyes
09 – i knew a girl with the world in her hand (reprise)

Paranerd – Little Shames {[dot9.02]}

Artist: Paranerd
Title:
Little Shames
Label:
 One
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.

_KhlER3L – Gratis {[dot9.01]}

Artist: _KhlER3L
Title:
Gratis
Label:
 One
Catalog #:
[dot9.01]
Release Date:
2002/12/02
Re-Release Date:
2004/01/04


Our first re-release from the dot9 backcatalogue. In traditional dot9 fashion its presented as a longplayer / mix (26 min). Gratis pulls you into a unique but familiar world.

Filled with hectic and sombre moments, you’ll easily get lost. It’d be shameful not to point out the excellent programming, but its enviroment also deserves first mention. Put your headphones on and spend the next 30 minutes with _KhlER3L.

This Gratis, my first mini-album, was originally released about December 10th, 2002. I’m happy to be one of the first releases on mutes ressurection of the dot9 vibe with his new offshoot, One.
The idea behind Gratis was to put together something different from the usual Buzz release. I had spent a couple weeks listening to full albums, from beginning to end, and figured the extended format might be something new to try. The Buzz scene is mostly about releasing individual tracks, or sequences of individual tracks. Gratis was created from tracks, old and new, spliced together to form a whole. It isn’t perfect, but I hope it’s interesting enough for you to check out.

All tracks were created in Buzz without outside postproduction, except a bit of arrangement and wave editing via Cool Edit. Some of the samples were heavily edited in external programs. If you haven’t tried Buzz yet, you should. It is an amazing peice of software that gets better every day.

I have compressed the audio using Ogg Vorbis because it is way better than MP3. The file you are about to download is less than 10 megs, for 26 minutes of music. That’s an incredible ratio. What’s more, the quality is decent at those rates. Audiophiles will disagree, but so what? I think it’s a breakthrough for the scene. Now we can release albums and afford to host them ourselves. So, get to it!

For this first release it was set to unite some of the best musicians we know in different genres. Gathered here, they smoothly mind the gap between their respective styles; idm, guitar, one channel, low-fi, ambient, techno, etc., What better way to represent One and protest the shortsighted slant that ‘genres’ create, than to join it all under one roof? With contributions from Makunouchi Bento, Lackluster, Ronny Pries, randomajestiq, relative q, colophon, plosive, Sense, _KhlEr3L, pinkj, and Whitenoiz — You’d be hard pressed to find such a diverse album with this level of talent anywhere on the store shelves.
