Sytrjv - Lateral Latency

After the mysterious disappearance of the ethereal entity known as Sytrjv in 2009, all that remained were a a couple of tracks on an abandoned myspace page and a few remixes for the likes of Iqbit, Unterm Rad and Hecq. But a recent discovery at a hardiskeology site on the outskirts of Rome has unearthed a vast array of out of place artifacts from as early as 2003. The artifacts will be organised and progressively released here on brainstormlab. Since their discovery, some of the specimens have shown signs of life, which, if the allignment is right, may harbour a return of the obscure occurrence... Be prepared..

Bunai Carus - Veil EP

And here it is. French duo Bunai Carus are on the rise since their formation in early 2013 and we are happy they made a pitstop in our edge of the universe.Veil merges clean cuts on soaring pads to great visual effect. Ranging from abstract sound design to syncopated glitch, this album plays as a single story line to be heard from start to finish, for the whole cinematic experience.

In the video section is the music video for the track "LUCID" taken from the upcoming EP by French duo Bunai Carus - The video is courtesy of Nicolas Millot and Caroline Collinot.

MITOMA _ ISO:FORMS

A new name to our mutable face here on brainstormlab - and long over due for that matter. MITOMA's first contribution to community is no less than a 12 track LP. Coming from that realm of electronic music where fronts collide as warm and melodic sheets melt over robotic splicing appendages, all to the sound of pulsing progressive rhythms *breathe*. Cover art by Theresa Silver shows the frozen landscape in wave capturing tectonics. Being an LP there is more space for construction and narrative confirming that album needs to be seen as well as heard.

No longer a coincidence and punctual as ever, Nukua returns every 8 releases. The sacrifice in this ritual is a collection of 7 clinically cut, cautionary tales for all ages and persuasions. Preferably absorbed in a peaceful environment and feel the closeness..

XZICD _ Denocleosis Reutomaghafth Remix Album

Once upon a time, portuguese afro-donning movie nerd XZICD makes 4 track EP and giant derivative remix pack. Sends to 11 friends without original track reference and entices liberal use of samples. And so the camel got his Denocleosis Reutomaghafth. The end.

RALP _ 0812

From the recesses of some chunky hard drive on a shelf between a stack of gameboys and a broken monitor, comes Ralp's retrospective _ a Ralprospective! All pieces created from 2008-2012 this marvel of self-historification contains 14 tracks in what can only be described as the voice of machines.
