JNN113 Krabatof – Sea of trees

7 12 2010

How these mystical artists find their way into the realms of JNN is beyond me sometimes, but behold; this ‘Sea of trees’ will astound you. But before we talk of this album here, let’s share a previous review of ‘Insect’s Brain’ shared on Touching Extremes;

“a little more than 31 minutes of very interesting “bruit art” by Geneva-based Ludovic Guerry, who manipulates “noises, field recordings and many weird sounds” in seven personal definitions of a peculiar world of embryonic utterances and disembodied dreams about the inhospitality of life.”

While it baffles me to know who might be behind Krabatof, since I’ve read a few different names now I find myself lost in the sounds of the album you see in front of you now. The mysticism to me only ups the anté and I find myself caring less for the creator, but dwell only more the the creation. You should try it yourself too! If you too get lost, try the breadcrumbs option, but beware of the geese.

At long last it is finaly here; the successor of no-r-mal the first edition. Almost a year later down the line, but highly improved and filled with more goodies. Started on April 25th I would never have thought that this would grow as big as it did. Many bulkloads of work went into getting this compilation album out there, but it is out there now!
71 artists, 71 tracks have turned into a 6 CD!!! compilation album making for over 7 hours of listening pleasure. Today I give this to the world so that you may enjoy the sounds of some of the worlds great netlabel artists that all work somewhere in the field of experimental music. Neatly organized into 6 different atmospheres: Warm voices, Dark places, Strange paces, Ca-dance, Art sounds and Outta here.

Take your own moment and meander through these tracks that have all been laboured with love!
All CD’s are burnable to fit on an audio CD.

JNN072 Mister Vapor vs. Altus – Falling out of orbit

7 01 2010

Sonicsquirrel page

And if you think we’ve heard the best collaboration works yet, then let this one surprise your ears. Mister Vapor (aka the extremely prolific Mystified) joined up with Altus (one of the ambient great netlabelartists). Well fitting in some of the other ‘deep sea dives’ of this months JNN releases this album takes you deeper. Where the wonderful string-drones of Altus meet with the dark-drones of Mister Vapor this is a clash of experimentalism that cannot be missed. We are proud to host this for your ears.

JNN071 Anime Hill – Anime Hill

Sonicsquirrel page

Yes, its true. This mighty fine album is not brand new; it has been released and available in the past on Jamendo. But all good things come to an end, and there where there are endings there are new beginnings.
Anime Hill has graciously offered his very first album for a release on Just not normal and we couldn’t be more proud of this dark ambientish but certainly gorgeous experimentalic album. Enjoy the rich sounds and deep churns if you have not before and hopefully somewhere in 2010 we’ll see more from this exciting artist.

Faustino Goyena is the artistic denomination of both Nicolas L. Gago and his noise project, created in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2005. It has released a number of LPs. and collaborative albums both independently and by European netlabels, being one of the most prolific noise artists in Argentina.

Goyena describes himself as a third-world noiser with a DIY musician attitude. As of 2009, a number of so-called “Guerrilla presentations” are being made, despite the absence of live performances in the early career. Goyena’s music is by principle always free to download.

JNN053 :retreat: – RTRT 001

7 09 2009

Archive.org page
Sonicsquirrel page

After the projects : HALLER: (industrial) and: SINCLAIR: (ritual): RETREAT: is the third project of Ronny Jung from Leipzig, Germany.
It is the reduced project and yet deliberately omitted for ornamentation.
It is intended to look for rest and relaxation pose. the quiet in the noise.
The name:RETREAT: is program.
On this album were mic’ed recordings of singing glas, didgeridoo, small metal bells and larger porcelain bells and torn paper were used as raw material.
The process of working is very experimental and not compositional.
It is researching what one can.

Mastered by Mark Stolk (aka Mystahr)

JNN050 various artists – no-R-mal

7 08 2009

Archive.org page
Sonicsquirrel page

Celebrating the 50th release on JNN I’ve invited some of the best (netlabel)artists from around the globe to join this massive compilationalbum.

In total 52 artists joined to create the finest in what is available in experimental music these days. Much of what you hear is unreleased work with the exception of a handful. These tracks have been carefully mastered and put together to present to you a 4 CD epic journey into sound. Together with the artwork the puzzle lies ahead to find out what exactly is ‘normal’.
A tip of the veil; … there is no one answer. What one considers normal another may disagree on with totally different standards.
Or in short; we are all just not normal and we all are!

no R mal!

[JNN02] mystahr vs mystified – Par takes

8 06 2008

Archive.org page
Sonic Squirrel page

It was only natural the two of us got together on one album, time and opportunity were the needed culprits in this. Mystahr provided his all hardware hard-edged electronics to the board, and mystified touched his master drone-fingers on the source material. Resulting in 4 tracks that dive deep and deeper into obscure and fascinating dark atmospheres.
