TA002 | Unterm Rad: The Rake’s Progress

The Rake’s Progress CD

Unterm Rad is Mike Slansky, Chicago native, graphic designer, audio engineer, and composer. Mike has been making electronic music for well over 10 years under many monikers: Rekt, Aural, Month of Grey, has collaborated with countless musicians, and remixed the likes of Hecq, Claus Muzak, Totakeke, Zentriert Ins Antlitz, Testube, and Textbeak. With his solo project Unterm Rad, Mike explores the deepest and darkest regions of his own psyche, taking his listeners on an escalating journey through a wide range of inevitable human emotions.

Unterm Rad‘s prolific debut album featuring 9 original tracks + remixes by Sytrjv, Atomatik 13, The PQ Sessions, Textbeak, JFrank, Symmetrical Syndrome, and Dreams Are Maps.

Sixteen tracks of schizosonic psychopathy chart the paths from confusion, shame, and despair, to hope, perseverance, and hardened resolve.

Irresistible glitchy oddness ahead of its time…

“…minimal and fragmented D’n’B-IDM/Electronica which mostly avoids any straight structures…” – Chain DLK

“… a wonderfully experimental release.” – Connexion Bizarre

TA004 | Subheim: Approach

Approach CDSubheim is the deeply personal project of electronic music composer and visual artist Kostas K., a downtempo, experimental venture fusing IDM elements with rich ambiance and female vocals by Katja.

Complex and uncompromising, Subheim’s debut album on Tympanik Audio is full of intricate rhythms, deep reverbs, and bitcrushed sounds, combined with pianos, cellos, and beautiful synthwork. Haunting melodies and distant voices meet complex beats and luring atmospheres to create a unique blend of dynamics and emotion. ‘Approach’ flirts with post-rock and atmospheric downtempo styles, while still maintaining an original sound that is both captivating and inspirational.

Moved by subjects such as urban isolation and the outburst of mankind’s deepest emotions, Subheim delivers the ideal soundtrack for those moments of chaos or melancholy reflections. ‘Approach’ is the highly-anticipated debut album from this talented Greek artist. Featuring remixes by Mobthrow (GE) and Flaque (DE).

Subheim tastefully blends conventional and electronic music elements into a rich yet subtle sound that is built upon carefully layering a variety of simple parts.” – Chain DLK

“…Subheim‘s compositions are extremely solid and effective, emotionally-charged pieces which, despite a synthetic execution feel extremely organic – an apt testimony of the artist’s talent and skill.” – Connexion Bizarre

Subheim‘s ‘Approach’ “…covers an area seeded with harsh landscapes derived from torrential undercurrents and post-industrial beatwork. “One Step Before The Exit” and “Stranded,” are both drenched in darkened extraterrestrial soundscapes fuelled by elevated ambient propulsion and sharp, metallic beats; perfect.” – Igloo Magazine

TA003 | Totakeke: eLekatota – The Other Side of the Tracks

eLekatota - The Other Side Of The Tracks CDThe brilliant new album from New York producer, Frank Mokros (Synth-etik / Hands Productions) featuring 13 stunning tracks of complex rhythmic Industrial. With previous remix collaborations flanking the likes of TerrorfaktImminentRadial, and Klangstabil, 2 successful releases for Frozen Empire Media, and a radiant new track on the recent Tympanik Audio compilation ‘Emerging Organisms’, Totakeke is back with his 2nd full-length album that proves to be his finest work yet.

An excellent listening choice for those occasions in which one finds time to not do anything else but sit down, relax, appreciate a very good record and forget about life’s worries.” – Connexion Bizarre

TA012 | Autoclav1.1: Love No Longer Lives Here

Autoclav1.1: Love No Longer Lives HereMainly known for his promotional work within the electronic music scene, Tony Young aka: Autoclav1.1 turned his hand to writing music late 2004. Since then he has had numerous successes including two EP’s, two albums ‘You are my all and more‘ [Crunchpod] and ‘Visitor Attractions’ [Crunchpod], and more recently a remix album ‘Broken Beats for Broken Hearts‘ [Hive], all of which have cemented Autoclav1.1 as one of the more prolific artists on the scene. Fusing huge orchestral compositions and IDM with flashes of Industrial and modern Electronica, Autoclav1.1 is quickly gaining a reputation for pulling on the deepest of human emotions with a variety of melodies and real-time instrumentation frequently torn apart by paranoid beatwork and broken rhythmical structures.

On Love no Longer Lives Here, his third and latest studio album and first for rising US label Tympanik Audio, Young changes the goal posts once more and treads some new waters without forgetting his roots. More emphasis has been placed on heart rendering piano sections and soul capturing melodies. The introduction of more organic instruments are thrown into the mix with a splash of guitars and affectionate nods to other musical genres which add a new dimension altogether, displaying a maturity and growth that we have come to expect with each Autoclav1.1 release. The album includes guest appearances from Jamie of ESA (Electronic Substance Abuse) and Dave from Cradle of Filth, and highlights Autoclav1.1’s diversity and willingness to work within different musical scopes.

Love no Longer Lives Here‘ is a dark and brooding creature, overshadowed by moments of hope, that studies the modern human condition; a concept album that exposes the very essence of existence as it is today.

All is black, all is white. There is no grey or in between…

TA019 | Broken Fabiola: Severed

The new full-length album by Broken Fabiola, titled Severed‘, marks their return from hibernation since the release of their double CD collection in 2005 on Auricle Media.

Written and produced over a period of 3 years between Seattle and Los Angeles, the project’s music became a personal labor of love, and the heavily favored body of work by its celebrated producer, Karloz.M of the Electro/Industrial act Manufactura.

With additional production and vocal talents from Sharon Blackstone as well as additional vocals by NissaBroken Fabiola takes the listener into a delicate world of tense atmospheres filled with dense, emotional soundscapes stirred generously by a vast assortment of broken beats and rhythmic pulses.

Drawing from a prolific pool of Dark Ambient, IDM, Tech-Step, and Rhythmic Noise influences, Broken Fabiola‘s Severed delves deep into the reaches of the mind, digging purposely into emotionally charged epics that explore those territories beyond internal struggle and the duality of mankind.

With a monument of prolific soundscapes to reveal, ‘Severed‘ manages to peer through the mind of its listener, setting aside conventional aural stimulation, and instead uncovers the darker and more contemplative regions of this fantastic human organ.

Featuring collaborations from some very special guest artists such as Shane Talada (Marching Dynamics / The Operative), Daniel Myer (Architect / Haujobb), Scott Sturgis (Converter) and Dre Robinson (Databomb / Download), ‘Severed‘ promises to be an intense and memorable journey indeed.

Available now on compact disc only from Tympanik Audio.

TA028 | Black Lung: Full Spectrum Dominance

March 2008, in one of the most unusual events in contemporary music history, notable electronic/alternative musician David Thrussell aka Black Lung is commissioned by DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — a funding body of the U.S Government and the Pentagon) to produce a recording that reflects the ideals and reality of Vision 2020, a futuristic military strategy program that first saw the light of day in May of 2000.

Working with a sizable budget and unprecedented access to defense installations and personnel, Thrussell took over a year to complete the project and wove many field recordings as well as the sounds of sensitive hardware and technology into the final product. “One of the greatest thrills for me,” says Thrussell, “was setting up a full P.A. inside one of the ICBM silos at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California to run and record the final mix on the title track Full Spectrum Dominance — room ambience and all!

When asked if he sees any conflict between his latest project and his past stance as known critic of government and military activities, Thrussell is quick to retort, “No, not at all. I see my role first as a musical journalist — to present the information — there’s plenty of time for editorializing later. And…,” he continues enthusiastically, “I’ve even invented my own sub-genre to describe the album’s unique, crunchy, downbeat sound — Grave-step….

Ranging from funk-laced rhythmic noise to eerie dark ambient soundscapes, Black Lung‘s new album ‘Full Spectrum Dominance‘ is a virtual feast for the aural senses.

The North American label Tympanik Audio and Ant-Zen in Europe, are proud to present the new Black Lung album ‘Full Spectrum Dominance‘, available now through all discerning music outlets.

In 2008, Lucidstatic came to Tympanik Audio to present his official debut album ‘Gravedigger‘, demonstrating a powerful blend of breakcore and Industrial elements that made critics and listeners perk their ears to this noisy Alaskan newcomer.

Never one to remain dormant, Lucidstatic has created and released countless new tracks through various labels and outlets, as well as remixed and collaborated with a never-ending list of musicians from around the world. In the spirit of accord within our beloved underground music community, his passion to meld and share his ideas with like-minded artists is as clear as vodka.

Now, Lucidstatic offers a new collection of work spanning a multitude of genres and music styles, demonstrating his astonishing capability to craft diverse, unique, and memorable songs within a considerable scope.

Initially working from a vast collection of unfinished material, Lucidstatic approached and was approached by a talented cast of both up-and-coming and well-established artists. Piece by piece, track by track, each selection for ‘Symbiont Underground‘ was poured over, polished, and perfected until the collective results swelled beyond the expectations of its creators.

Lucidstatic‘s ‘Symbiont Underground‘ consists of 23 solid new tracks spanning a 2-CD collection featuring collaborations with such artists as Angel Of ViolenceMothboyIammynewtMono PenguinESAHuman Error, Mangadrive, Experiment HaywireServo HatredPig FatManufactura, and many more, with artwork by Kostas K. (Subheim) and mastering by Justin Brink (Pneumatic Detach).

With so many diverse minds and capable hands at work here, it’s almost unimaginable that such a strong, compelling, and astoundingly cohesive album such as ‘Symbiont Underground‘ could be achieved. Yet here it is…

“The album concept works out wonderfully, by inviting his friends to the musical party Lucidstatic has made an album that has personality and the tracks are engaging and above average.” – Auxilary Magazine

TA045 | Access To Arasaka: void();

After the out-of-nowhere success of his debut CD ‘Oppidan‘ in 2009, the Rochester, NY producer Access To Arasaka returns a year later, stronger and more focused than ever, with a stunning new album on Tympanik Audio titled ‘void();‘.

Sixteen new tracks of dark sonic futurism inspired by the history and future of system hacking. From the phone phreaks to the console cowboys; dirty hippies using blue boxes at payphones 40 years ago, to the unborn children wandering cyberspace 40 years from now. An open invitation for the listener to imagine what a computer might attempt to comprehend when its system is under such an attack. Perfectly dark, cinematic, complex, and hauntingly surreal.

“Lioy brings the precision of a surgeon’s eye and hand to the tracks’ hyperactively ricocheting beats and the whirr and click of their writhing, synapse-firing electronics.” – Textura

TA043 | Totakeke: On The First Of November

One of Tympanik Audio‘s most revered and iconic artists returns for his fourth full-length album titled ‘On The First Of November‘.

Here Totakeke elevates his signature brand of infectious beatworks accentuated by complex rhythms, dark melodies, and massive atmospheres to create another addictive beat-driven masterpiece.

Totakeke steps up the tautness with a resounding sense of ferocity pounding out 10 powerful new tracks of immense proportions. From beginning to end, ‘On The First Of November‘ gushes with caressing tension and head-nodding beats amidst a swirling torrent of sputtering glitch, ominous pads, punching beat drops, mind-bending breaks, and looming basslines.

Quite possibly Totakeke‘s most focused work to date.

Available now on digipak compact disc only from Tympanik Audio.

Mokros hears possibilities that most composers do not, and instead of dismissing them as untenable, he embraces them as necessary experiments.  This visionary brashness results in a truly futuristic sound.” – The Silent Ballet

TA044 | Anklebiter: I Will Wait

Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Tanner Volz began cultivating his talents for creating electronic music in the early 1990s with the post-Industrial band Thine Eyes. From there, the eclectic project ML was realized and went on to release prolific works on such labels as Toast and Jamn5MDEn:peg, and Piehead Recordings.

While recovering from an illness in 2008, Tanner seeded his new project Anklebiter on a laptop from the comfort of his easy chair. During this time, a deeply personal, idiosyncratic, and emotionally rich instrumental electronic work emerged that fully indulged Tanner’s love for contemporary Shoegaze and Synthpop styles, as well as his deep roots in early Industrial and dark New Wave.

Now, Anklebiter joins the Tympanik Audio family with his debut full-length album titled ‘I Will Wait‘.

With a vast array of seemingly straightforward analog patterns converging together to generate deeply emotional, beat-driven dark IDM soundscapes, ‘I Will Wait‘ manages to embrace a refreshing simplicity with unique effectiveness that is rarely heard these days. Staggering beats meet nostalgic synthlines to create a haunting aural utopia that is at once beautiful and all together strangely alluring.

Available on compact disc only from Tympanik Audio.

TA047 | Undermathic: 10:10PM

After the sleeper debut ‘Return To Childhood‘ in 2009, Undermathic returns to Tympanik  Audio  with his powerful new album release ‘10:10PM‘.

With the previous album lending itself to a grittier, darker approach to Electronica with an slight Industrial tint, ‘10:10PM‘ reveals a more cultivated and polished sound demonstrating this Polish artist’s talent for accessibility and sharp song construction. Still present are the massive washes of ambiance and infectious beatwork mixed with brooding melodies and heavy synthlines that have become signatures of Undermathic’s unique sound, yet an air of beauty and hopefulness is always present in contrast to the gripping tautness of each song, creating a distinct mood that is both epic and wondrous.

10:10PM’ flows smoothly and effortlessly, never too abrasive or serene, but a perfect balance between beats and ambiance. Tracks like “Big City Nights”, “Searcher”, and “10:10PM” display a sense of urgency and fullness, yet always allowing the listener time to breathe with marvelous breakdowns and lovely atmospheres, whereas songs like “I Remember”, “7 Years”, and “Sea” summon a relaxing and dreamy state that embraces the listener with warm aural visualizations.

Tympanik Audio invites you to slip on your headphones and take a trip with Undermathic’s stunning new album ’10:10PM’, available on a special release date of 10/10/10.

Digipak artwork and design by Szymon Skrypoczko.

“A mixture of accessible, charming melodies, industrial arrangements and thick electronica beats, it’s also something that flows very well, and which could work pretty well for long night drives or headphones sessions. Seductive.” – Ad Noiseam

“The album never falters as track after track takes you deeper into this beautifully balanced electronic masterpiece. The composition of the music is superb and the production is simply stunning. With out a doubt this is one of the finest releases I’ve heard all year…” – Electronic Moon

“Though Undermathic hews to the dark electronic side of the spectrum in a manner to be expected of a Tympanik Audio artist, Maciej Paszkiewicz also proves himself to be a composer who’s a cut above the rest.” – Textura

“I am in awe of this album, impressed all over again with every listening. I hear no flaws, and there is not one iota I would change or do differently. This is THE album of 2010. You would really be doing yourself a disservice not to own it.” – Chain D.L.K.

“Geiger incorporates elements of industrial, ambient, IDM, and field recordings into restlessly mutating tracks packed with detail and incident.” – Textura

TA048 | C.H. District: Conclusion

C.H. District: Conclusion5 years after the release of C.H. District‘s previous album ‘Slides‘, the Polish electro wizard returns with his newest collection of work titled ‘Conclusion‘ on Tympanik Audio.

Packed full of solid, dynamic beats, shining synth pads, steady rhythms, and echoing melodies, ‘Conclusion‘ reveals a stronger, slightly more dance-oriented sound than previous works. However do not expect a loopy 4×4 techno album here – C.H. District has taken once familiar dance music elements and commanded them into submission, twisting solid beat patterns into unconventional works of glitch-laden, head-nodding rhythmic anthems. The heavy, popping basslines and robotic creaks maneuver each track with thoughtful precision while crafty electro-styled overtones and moderately distorted synth pads create a perfect balance of energy, melody, and flow.

As playful as it is complex, ‘Conclusion‘ hits the mark right from the start and doesn’t falter in the slightest throughout, laying down track after track of unyielding electronic body music.

“Roping each of these outside influences into his strict-to-technique beat-core, Conclusion provides a galvanic incentive for genre-loiterers like myself to hop confidently over the fence” – Skeleton Crew Quarterly

Tapage & Meander: Etched In Salt

Out of a sea of zeroes and ones come 12 surreal musical explorations of Tapage & Meander. While a gentle current often lets the fragile melodies flow through the tracks with genuine ease, the corroded snare drums and overgrown kicks lie scattered on the ocean floor, long forgotten by man. Intertwined and accepted by nature, these percussive elements now only enhance the richness of what is found here. There is yet more to discover though as these producers do not only take you deeper but also closer. This fantastic pairing of two beautiful minds produces steady waves of beat-driven melodies captured in a net of heavy atmospheres and complex rhythms that mimic the power of the tides themselves.

“An impressively crafted debut – a collection that manages to navigate both industrial and IDM waters without ever really being subsumed in either scene.” – Cyclic Defrost

TD010 | Undermathic: Deleted (1999-2006)

For over a decade, Polish producer Maciej Paszkiewicz has been creating some unique sounds under various pseudonyms before finally assembling his works beneath the moniker of Undermathic in 2009 with his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Return To Childhood‘. Saturated in beauty, organic rhythms, and a virtual tide of sophistication, ‘Return To Childhood’ easily stood on its own ground offering an immense album full of life and vision that transcended genres and ultimately arrived as a genuine preview of the future of intelligent electronic music.

In 2010, Undermathic returned to Tympanik Audio with his second full-length album titled ‘10:10pm‘ released on the special date of 10/10/10. Still present were the massive washes of ambiance and infectious beatwork mixed with brooding melodies and heavy synthlines that had become signatures of Undermathic’s unique sound, yet an air of beauty and hopefulness was always present in contrast to the gripping tautness of each song, creating a distinct mood that was both epic and wondrous.

Now, Undermathic presents his listeners with 13 unreleased and deleted tracks from his pre-album years in a digital-only release appropriately titled ‘Deleted (1999-2006)’. Each song here could easily pass for new material, exhibiting Maciej’s solid production and composing skills even in their earliest stages. From the industrial-tinged tautness of “Mechanical Steering”, “Bypass”, and “Moyen Age”, the quirky electro rhythms of “Stereo” and “Idleness”, to the smooth melody-laced atmospheres of “My Room”, “Parallel”, and “I’m Waiting”, Undermathic once again delivers another memorable collection of songs full of vitality and warmth.

All songs written and produced by Maciej Paszkiewicz between 1999 and 2006. Cover artwork by Timothée Mathelin aka shift. (futurorg.com).

01. Mechanical Steering
02. Bypass

TA058 | Normotone: Inward Structures

Normotone now joins the Tympanik Audio family to present his debut album ‘Inward Structures‘. Each track featured on ‘Inward Structures‘ has its own story, while remaining an integral part of a cohesive album. Under the predominantly raw layers of cold electronica, heavy basslines, and glitchy rhythms, listeners can identify classic industrial influences ranging from, but not limited to cold wave, folk, rhythmic noise, and contemporary dark ambient music with a sonic edge. A collaborative effort among well-renowned artists including KL (Stigma, Neon Cage Experiment, KL), Neon Rain, One Droid And Its Man, Punish Yourself, Polygon, and more, results in a polymorphic effect of sorts.

Normotone‘s ‘Inward Structures‘ is available now on compact disc from Tympanik Audio.

TA060 | Access To Arasaka: Geosynchron

In the final chapter of his quasi-trilogy, Access To Arasaka’s ‘Geosynchron’ offers a full conclusion to what began earlier this year with the ‘Orbitus’ and ‘Aleph’ EPs. With these works referencing themes of oppression and the struggle to traverse inequitable boundaries, ‘Geosynchron’ expands the narrative to the subsequent failure of opposition and inevitable retaliation. A witnessing of the destruction of a system as viewed from the system itself, as it scrambles desperately to rectify a million problems at once while processes fail one after the other.

If ‘Orbitus’ is the question, and ‘Aleph’ the desired answer, then ‘Geosynchron’ is the inevitable and unwanted outcome.

Access To Arasaka and Tympanik Audio invite you to experience the sharp and expansive soundscapes of ‘Geosynchron’. Available now on compact disc and digital formats.

TA062 | Integral: The Past Is My Shadow

In 2008, Tympanik Audio introduced our listeners to Integral, an esoteric duo from Germany, and their debut album ‘Rise’. With a very personal approach to a wide range of multi-layered and hauntingly beautiful compositions, ‘Rise’ proved to be a gem in the Tympanik catalog and a highly appreciated aural experience for its listeners.

As we all waited patiently for a new album, Integral began sifting through their minds and hard drives seeking the origins of their creativity. The results of that search took on the title of ‘The Past Is My Shadow’, eighteen unreleased and newly mastered songs that expertly construct the foundation for what would eventually become the Integral we know and admire today.

From their earliest beginnings, David and Rafael seemed to have a firm grasp on the tone and direction they wanted for Integral. Songs originating from as early as 2002 up until post-‘Rise’ 2006 manage to sound as bright and purposeful as if they were just recently produced. Each selection on ‘The Past Is My Shadow’ reveals a rich collage of sounds and ideas, with a level of depth and intricacy that is uncommon these days. Beat-driven and rhythmic, but never overpowering, with vast swirling ambiance, layer upon layer of dense atmospheres, poignant melodies, and a smooth complexity that allows the listener to uncover new levels of aura with each ensuing listen.

In David and Rafael’s own words, “For us, this is the real debut album… a release of the past and an opening for the future. We invite you to take a journey with this album and find your own place somewhere in this universe of sound.

A universe of sound indeed. Get ready. Integral’s ‘The Past Is My Shadow’ is available now in a 2-CD collection from Tympanik Audio. Limited to 500 copies.

TA061 | Tapage: Overgrown

Since 2008, Tapage has become a staple of the Tympanik family with two well-received solo albums ‘The Institute of Random Events’ in 2008, ‘Fallen Clouds’ in 2009, and his collaboration album ‘Etched In Salt’ with Meander in 2010. Now this glitch guru of The Netherlands returns with a stunning new collection of works titled ‘Overgrown’.

Tapage presents fourteen playful new songs full of intertwining pops, clicks, and glitchy rhythms surrounded by warm bass tones and winding melodies. From the mischievous dsp-laden beats and embracing air of “Loss”, the warped low-end bass and clutching click-n-cut percussion of “Xyloplax”, to the massive basslines and delicious glitch rhythms of “Leptoid”, and the smooth ambiance of “Pockets”, ‘Overgrown’ manages to reveal as well as entice with a range of emotions and styles. A serendipitous and unique journey perfect for headphone excursions.

Mastered by M. Cadoo at 37n, 122w and available now in a 4-panel digipak compact disc package from Tympanik Audio.

TA067 | ESA: Themes Of Carnal Empowerment Pt. 1: Lust

Over 3 years after ‘The Sea & The Silence‘, ESA returns with part 1 of a dual-part concept release for 2012 titled ‘Themes Of Carnal Empowerment‘. Taking inspiration from the very meaning of lust and concentrating on the energy and instability that often results, this new collection of rhythmic Industrial stompers promises to be all that ESA fans have been waiting for and more.

11 infectious new tracks display the groovier, more energetic side of ESA. Combining hard addictive rhythms with dark and seductive hooks, each piece creates a truly enveloping experience which rarely takes the foot off the pedal. From the solid rolling rhythm of “Red Passage Overture” to the groove laden viciousness of “Wretch” and the distressing noisescapes of “Loss“, part 1 of ‘Themes of Carnal Empowerment’ finds ESA at its most mature and damaging yet.

With jaw dropping artwork centered around the concept of lust…’Themes Of Carnal Empowerment Pt. 1’ is a no-brainer for heavy industrial fans who like their rhythmic noise with a little more substance and depth.

Artwork by inVALIS/. Mastered by Yann Faussurier (Iszoloscope). 6-panel digipak compact disc available now.
