“Featuring some big names and excellent tracks from some new faces, Emerging Organisms introduces Tympanik Audio in style. -Side-Line magazine

“Emerging Organisms is the type of compilation you would expect to see from a long-established label like Ant-Zen or Spectre… Packed with big names and some excellent tracks from some new faces, Emerging Organisms introduces Tympanik Audio with a bang”. –Igloo magazine

“…Young Tympanik Audio has been able to build a reputation as a leader of innovative electronic music…if you are looking for some good instrumental EBM and IDM that thinks outside of the box, then Tympanik Audio’s Emerging Organisms compilation is the record for you”. –Chain DLK

“(Emerging Organisms) is a manifest that clearly shows the direction of the label… a path marked by new as well as known projects, organisms that feed themselves on electronic music and emerge to give us their own vision of avant-garde.” -Addictive:Noize

Re:Gen magazine proclaims that Emerging Organisms is “a package that is sure to send the listener into spasms of simultaneous serenity and frenzy” and that it “fulfills its purpose as a wonderful sampler of what Tympanik Audio has to offer”.

"A veritable pile of unadulterated dark electronic psychoses and shining atmospheres, the addictive mood kindled by volume one of the Hidden Forms compilation series establishes a precedent that will prove difficult for later installments to match. Its positive qualities lie in not only the selection of tracks, but also in their arrangement. If there is one thing that sets "Emerging Organisms" apart, it is the compilation’s challenging potential to infatuate the listener." -Connexion Bizarre

TA003 | Totakeke: eLekatota - The Other Side of the Tracks CD

The 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 Terrorfakt, Imminent, Radial, 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.  From start to finish, ‘eLekatota’ manages to effortlessly merge several genres of electronic music into one seamless body of work, without distorting the mood or veracity of the album as a whole. Each track feels alive, constantly morphing and shifting into new directions without the slightest loss of cohesiveness. A masterful collage of addictive rhythms, richly-layered beats, intriguing samples, and cavernous atmospherics, that all seem to somehow replenish themselves with each listen. ‘eLekatota: The Other Side of the Tracks’ is timeless opus that is sure to be hailed as one of the finest Industrial productions in years.

eLekatota is “an impressive album” with the “potential to become a reference in the current industrial scene”
- Side-Line magazine


eLekatota is “original…a widely varied and ever changing sonic soundscape of moods, textures, rhythms and atmospheres” - Igloo magazine

eLekatota is a “complex array of intricate beats and synthesized ambience” - Re:Gen magazine

eLekatota is “intelligent rhythmic industrial that smoothly flows from one track to the next” - Headphone Commute

"eLekatota works well alongside IDM acts such as Detritus and Mnemonic" - Gothtronic

"eLekatota is one of those albums that demands (and deserves) the listener’s undivided time and attention to be fully appreciated. 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

TA004 | Subheim: Approach CD

SUBHEIM 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 (GR) and Flaque (GER).
