Machinefabriek (Rutger Zuyderveldt from Arnhem, Holland) is amongst the finest experimental/electronic artists of recent years – his ultra-prolific back catalogue showcases his ability to perfect classical ambience, organic drone soundscapes, electronic minimalism and cathartic noise, and he has been hailed as one of the most interesting new experimental musicians by the Wire magazine.
"Lawine' showcases the singular talent of Rutger Zuydervelt, his ability to morph from near-absolute sonic stilness to noise jams with slow, barely descernible stealth" - The Wire
"QUITE POSSIBLY ONE OF THE FINEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR... Rutger Zuydervelt has married the smart post rock sensibility of Mogwai with something far more experimental and the crunchy turntablism of Jeck with something far more accessible. The resulting sound is a deeply immersive collection of experiments, populist sounds with a noisy bent, or post rock without the rock." - Boomkat
Operations (aka Manchester based Chris Anderson) dislikes silence. To this end, he creates the kind of organic, slowly shifting beautiful music that sounds more like it's been discovered than created - understated electronic drones perfectly matched with traditional instrumentation which pull at the consciousness. The beauty of his music periodically breaks in to swathes of static and that sense of being happy and lost and the same time.
Fieldhead is the musical project of P. Elam (also of The Declining Winter and Glissando), who produces ambient electronic music, and is inspired by tape hiss.
