Three sonic trajectories which tie and untie. Three creative entities to orchestrate the whole. John Sellekaers (Xingu Hill, Dead Hollywood Stars), Daniel De Los Santos (Tamarin) and Mathias Delplanque (Lena, Bidlo) open us the door to a universe whose maze conceals a multitude of other doors.

 LCEDP "De L'Utilité Des Convoyeurs"
  Angle Records 2005 CD. Our rating [10/10]

Ever entered one of those old abandoned factories at night, wandering through its long desolated vintage hallways, discovering rusty machines put to a permanent idle state against their will, hearing your footsteps resonating around you towards infinity, up to the high arched ceilings of the engine room, hearing the distant sound of the water dripping slowly on the floor, having the feeling of bre...

 OLLO "The if if"
  12 Apostles 2006 CD. Our rating [7/10]

Whether mixing electro with great vocal pop melodies, or acoustic strums, stuttering hip hop beats and emotional static with dub, Sydney's ollo have been compared with The Flaming Lips, The Triffids, Caribou, Prefuse 73 and Herbert. On this second vocal heavy album the Sydney boys prove how they managed to gatecrash BBC Radio 1's Festive 50 top 10 recently and why Linda Evangelista chooses to sash... [Read full review]

 PERCEPTION CLEANSE PERCEPTION "Cross-cutting in cold frames"
  Dungeon recodings 2006 CD. Our rating [9/10]

Perception Cleanse Perception’s theme can best be described as one’s true self, locked beneath the layers of social plastic masks and deep dark affirmations. Everyone has a twitch of insanity that likes to pop up and say, HELLO, once in a while. This is my own personal mind-fuck. This project first started out as a journal. A place where I could experiment with all the unfinished songs that had go... [Read full review]

 ALAN ICHIYASU "Arts des Trois"
  Cosmo and biff records 2001 CD. Our rating [5/10]

I received 3 CD's from Alan Ichiyasu of his releases (on Cosmo & Biff Records) and they are great instrumental piano type pieces (New Age Jazz Fusion) that you can relax to or get up to depending on the cut. Kind of a 'Hearts of Space' type of feel here, and I like ARTS des TROIS - (The single) as well as cuts from his other single and the Fragments Album. Check out his site at http://www.ichiyasu...

 SPENCER DURHAM "Much more than words"
  Cavender Castle Entertaiment 2006 CD. Our rating [6/10]

Spencer Durham is the very definition of an “up-and-coming” artist. This 18-year-old singer/songwriter/guitarist from Atlanta recently released his second CD, Much More Than Words, and its mature, full sound certainly belies Durham’s tender age. The album’s 12 tracks allow Spencer to display his songwriting prowess, but it is his strong, earthy vocals that really grab the listener. His voice warra... [Read full review]

 MATHIAS DELPLANQUE "Ma Chambre Quand Je N’y Suis Pas [Montreal]"

This is the stereo version of a sound installation presented at Montréal’s Studio Cormier in December 2004. It is the second part of the ‘’Ma chambre quand je n’y suis pas’’ series.
