Right now, listen to Mathias Grassow's Ambience (1995) album. This is great, need to get more stuff by him for sure. His catalog is massive and daunting.

By the way, has anyone noticed that DACs in phones are getting better? I upgraded my phone a couple months ago and I'm surprised how good it sounds playing FLACs and listening through full-size headphones. I might even start listening through headphones more, though in general I prefer speakers.

Love that album. That and Expanding Horizon (a collaboration with Alio Die) are the only two albums of his that I have on CD.

Thanks! Would love to get your take on it.

Well I definitely stand corrected on Vladislav Delay after hearing Huone. TBH, the only Vladislav Delay album I have is Anima but I really like it. I'll have to check out more of his work at some point.

As for Pole, I need to check out the rest of the trilogy because I only have 2.

Porter Ricks - Shadow Boat EP

This is awesome. There are some shades of dub techno but it feels quite unique throughout. They didn't play it safe with a bunch of simple 4/4 beats. Some of the best new electronic music I've heard in a while.

I always thought of Pole and Vladislav Delay as fitting in more with the glitch movement than dub techno.

Also, just found out that Porter Ricks got back together and released an EP late last year. Will be listening to it soon.

Hello everyone,

My second album for Black Dingo Records just came out today. I'm really proud of the fact that I'm the first artist besides Duff Egan to have 2 releases on the label. Stylistically, it refines the approach seen on Beautiful Abyss further so if you liked that one, you'll be right at home here.

I also have a few DL keys for the new one:

Enjoy!

Yeah, the classic dub techno albums are way better than the newer stuff. The newer artists, like the ones on Deepchord's label, sound a little too polished and don't really advance the genre any.

I wish Porter Ricks were still together.

As a young person, I can tell the difference between loseless files and let's say 256kbps or 320 kbps MP3s even before I started making music but honestly, the difference isn't enough for me to convert all my music library to loseless files. Now if you're listening to MP3s at 192 kbps and lower, you're asking for trouble.

I think it's awesome. Can't wait for the album to come out.

ślfə : If you want to be a part of this community (and not be mistaken for yet another alter ego of Ekstasis) then introduce yourself properly (there is a section for that), and respond with care in threads. We are here to enjoy each other's company, enjoy the music, and have friendly and sometimes insightful conversation. Being anonymous only makes you questionable.

I don't think he needs to drop anonymity completely but dropping the aggresive criticism would do wonders, especially when talking to people who have been making ambient music for a long time. There's no need for that.

I love ValhallaRoom. One of my favorite reverbs.

Really nice setup.

A darkly dense affair this one, with a good 'depth' to it.
Slightly bordering on the atonal for these ears in parts, otherwise more nebulous and rather unique throughout - I certainly wouldn't say "reminiscent of the work of so and so"

Thanks for listening to it! I'm glad you noticed the depth. That's always a major priority for me when I'm piecing together my tracks.



53
Just finished it and I really enjoyed it from start to finish. The ocean sounds didn't feel cliche and it feels spiritual and heavenly without being cheesy. Congratulations on the new album.

54
Thanks Pete!

Also, I just bought your new album on BC and I'm downloading it right now. Been meaning to give it a good listen.

Divination - Distill

https://billlaswell.bandcamp.com/album/distill

Just started listening to this and so far, it's a great compilation of dark ambient tracks. Tetsu Inoue, Pete Namlook, Mick Harris, Paul Schultz, and Thomas Koner are on it. Highly recommended.

These two albums are classics in my book. If I didn't already have the CDs I'd get them through BC.

Note the artwork is different from the old 90s CD artwork.

Nice, and the Divination albums are now up too!

Looks interesting, and the price isn't bad.

Also, Obduction looks gorgeous but I didn't care for Riven years ago when I tried it so I'm hesitant to buy it. You either like those kinds of games or you don't.

Hello everyone,

Here is the new Castleview album, out now on Duff Egan's new label, Black Dingo Records.

https://duffegan.bandcamp.com/album/beautiful-abyss

I'm really proud to have the first commissioned release on Duff's label. I've been a big fan of his work for a long time so I jumped on this opportunity pretty quickly.

Speaking of Black Dingo Records, Duff also has a CD release of The Future Of Man (BDR 001), which is now available for the first time on Databloem:

I just built a gaming PC recently with Windows 10 on it. Windows is what I grew up with and it's the only serious choice for PC gaming at this point.

That being said, I've used Macs in college and work and they worked fine for me. OSX is pretty stable and it's not too hard to find things after a little while of getting used to it. I like how all updates are free but you've essentially paid for it through the overpriced hardware. Not only is their hardware far too expensive for the amount of performance you're typically getting, they're really hard to upgrade and repair by yourself like others have already pointed out.

Plus, if you really want to avoid viruses, just get a Chromebook or install Linux (particularly an accessible distro like Ubuntu or Mint). Ubuntu isn't bad for basic computing nowadays.
