For its 33rd release, Da ! Heard It Records dives into the origins of Creation.
Recorded in five days in London, at James Ogilvie’s studio in 2010, Dragon’s Teeth is the confrontation of eddie 135’s experimental tweaks and Shitblaster’s science of mix. Saturated like the oil from the fish and chips that three musicians greedily gulp up between two work sessions, the series of improvisations produced by Adrien, Matthieu, and James one evening, serves as the sizzling play-do used to conceive this future disc. From this initial magma that blends rhythm boxes, Juno synthesizer, and a deluge of pyrotechnical effects, accidental beaches form and reveal little by little large blankets that wrap the listener into an actual flow of lava. Petrified, the listener thus takes all the time needed to let oneself become invaded by the ensemble’s numerous textures…
Taking everything with them on their way, the four gobbling geezers deployed here evolve in jolts to bring back from the depths this mysterious dragon’s tooth. Instinctive, brutal, yet mastered, this album’s boiling energy proves once more that the first idea is often the right one.

Electrolyt proudly presents
Kid Schurke & Brain Hall - Haen Zikum Ulus
At the Brainhall synapses twitch to the beat with joy, when Roman Schürch and Andreas Glauser launch their machines. Frequencies are modulated, punctured, tweaked and pitched. In doing so, the tones and textures of the five tracks are kept well in flux by the fixed rhythm scaffolds and repetitive sequences. Due to the analogue origin of Kid Schurke and Brain Hall’s machine music, the overall sound is organic and warm. This is glitch and hop, industrial noise, ambient and improv jam. Sometimes there are subtle references to the electronic music pioneers of the 70s and sometimes memories of ecstatic synth-thunderstorms on dance floors in the early 90s appear as split-second flashbacks. The long tracks leave space for the music to develop and evolve. Quiet parts turn into tight electro funk monsters and beats disappear in an ocean of frequency modulations. It's so exciting and inspiring. For the love of electronic music: Haen Zikum Ulus
Elyt09 is produced, mixed and mastered by
Kid Schurke (Roman Schürch) and Brain Hall (Andreas Glauser)
at Brainhall Studio Zürich, Switzerland, 2016.
Haen Zikum Ulus cover artwork is created by Susana Licéaga in Mexico City, 2017

Spettro Records: a small place for experimental music. Celebrating 6 years with its third compilation!
It's been 6 years of Spettro Records. 6 years is a long time, if you want it to be. And at this moment in my life it feels as they've been forever, and I certainly won't be getting them back...
Spettro started more as an outlet for what me and friends were doing and recording ( Salomè Lego Playset, STUFA, Achievements, all of them dead projects... ), then grew into something different, a netlabel sui generis, mostly net / sometimes physical label ( of abysmal sales ), but anyway a home to us, and then to so many artists from everywhere in the world, so many I can't thank enough for trusting me and my instincts and who have allowed me to share their wonderful and unique music. It's still a home for me, for my own work ( SLP, which in the years has become more and more secondary), and of those artists which made up most of 2010's first compilation only few remain. So many have passed by, donated their work and passed on to different, probably better, labels. Some have quit music altogether. Some have moved to bigger things and achieved much deserved success, while some have freely and so generously donated a release even if Spettro was much below their label standards. I'm happy to think that Spettro has been The One, out of so many, that they chose, out of their free will, despite all the other, maybe better, choices around. Spettro can't offer much but a tiny and cozy home of uproaring silence, "a small place for experimental music" indeed.
So many artists are still joining, from everywhere in the world, and it's this fluctuating and stateless nature that makes Spettro so special to me and, hopefully, to you. It is an honor to host your music, and seeing younger people writing and joining Spettro gives me hope and pride.
This third installment offers the best that Spettro has and will have to offer in the years to come. Hopefully, other 3 years, and then another compilation will come, new people will join, and new pages will be written and leafed through. Perhaps at least. Fingers crossed. That's why the title, Chapter 4: Makkuraysmi no Jinsei : La stagione della Notte )", starts with "chapter 4", hence a compilation looking ahead, at another chapter. Then the "season of darkness", "la stagione della notte", 2016 and what remains of these last few years: very little, loss, hardship, confusion and despair, a night never ending, nothing but darkness ahead. Hope and despair.
This sampler is also in memory of Kelly Churko, incredible musician, unpredictable improviser, fierce alchemist of sound and composer of truth who passed away too soon. I'd also like to remember Ryo Tsuchiya of Senseless Records and of so many old and new school punk and rock'n'roll bands, whose path I briefly crossed back in 2008 and whose memory I will cherish.?
This album is for those who know Spettro, those who chose Spettro, and those who never heard of it, and maybe never will. This is for me as much as it is for you.
