Rhys Celeste – Microlith [FR016]

“Rhys Celeste aka Microlith passed away 26th February. 24 years old. The fatal weekend when Rhys lost his life I was mastering the tracks for his release in Fundamental Records. Rhys sent me the tracks only a few days before. He kept about forty untitled tracks for Fundamental Records and together we selected a perfect track list for the album. I was with all these melodies in my head all that weekend, I remember perfectly that feeling. Today I still have that special sensation that you can feel in all tracks composed by Rhys, something nostalgic with a big doses of happiness and hope in every note. When I was mastering his tracks I was like a young kid with a new record in my hands, each track is great, even the interludes are very special compositions.I am sure the people who support the projects we release in Fundamental Records will support this album not only for the circumstances but mainly because the quality of the tracks from someone with only 24 years… this is sad. I feel a deep emptiness inside of me because Rhys never listened the final tracks mastered… we released each track with the original references Rhys used for his tracks, except two tracks included in the very special 7. This feeling is something I can’t explain in words, and it is very difficult to carry within me. The next monday after his death I was like out of my body, we had a mountain of work with the shipping of the 808 Box but I felt totally paralyzed, my wife Anais and I could hardly speak, we were speechless for some minutes, looking to the screen of the computer trying to understand what happened, then I decided I have to do what I said to Rhys only two days before, and I opened the player in my laptop and I started to work in the design for the cover with the music of Rhys in repeat mode. I was in front of the screen all day, printing many sketches and color variations. I called Fundamental Records to our label for a very good reason and this project deserves this adjective in full effect. For the same reason I also decided to release this album under the real name of the artist, Rhys Celeste and use his music name, Microlith, for the title.”

Cygnus – Cosmos [FR014]

Fundamental Records present a vinyl edition of the previously digital only album Cosmos by Cygnus, composed out of eleven tracks (plus two bonus cuts on the 7″). Perfectly bridging the gap between street-smart electro DJ tools and more home-listening techno, Cygnus perfectly updates this sound.

Luke Eargoggle / Faceless Mind – Twin Paradox Series 003: Snow In June / Data Bara [FR010]

Twin Paradox is a special series in Fundamental Records where two different artists with a strong connection release a double album, one from each artists/band. So what we have here Two different albums, from two different artists, with a connection in style or maybe conceptual… in this TPS003 Luke Eargoggle for example is part of the Faceless Mind project.

VA – Time Capsule aka 808 Box [FR008]

808box

Madrid’s Fundamental Records not only release a high volume of contemporary electro, but they do so in fine style thanks to their overloaded packs and comprehensive compilations. This time they really done a number on us with this 808 Box release, a jaw-dropping fifty-tracker sealed in a trendy DJ shoulder bag tagged with the most infamous of all drum machines on the planet..! The music comes from all corners, and we see familiar faces laying down some truth on those beats; check the gear by Patronen, CPU, Alex Stark, Luke Eargoggle, Sync24, Tau Sagittarii and UHU.

Patronen – Twin Paradox Series 001 [FR007]

PATRONEN

There is a noticeable background noise in all these tracks. The background noise is mainly generated due to the recording method of Patronen and the machines he used to produce his tracks. All tracks are recorded in real time to tape, there is no other reason for it than the quest for a concrete sound and that sound is what you can hear in each track. Modified analog machines recorded directly to tape and then to other tapes. This record is a conceptual album. Two full albums for the new release of Fundamental Records, the first of the new Twin Paradox Series… a series of two different albums in the same release…. this time from the same artist. Patronen reflects a true spectrum of feelings in the precise momentum he is creating and recording the music with his custom modulars, synths, drum machines and of course his tape recorders.

DMX Krew – 100 Tears [FR005]

Spanish label Fundamental come through with a ltd edition of their highly prized DMX Krew LP. Ed Upton’s been on prolific form this year for sure, with 100 Tears his fourth DMX Krew long player of 2014 following outings on Shipwrec, Mystic & Quantum and Luke Eargoggle’s Stilleben Records. The twelve tracks here really demonstrate that Upton is a grand master of electro whatever the tempo, and are apparently the result of him working with just a few synths and a drum machine as opposed to his full studio whilst in the midst of moving house. For most people this would be a stressful process, for Ed Upton the situation has resulted in a sublime, masterful album.

Boris Divider – Deflector / Atractor [FR004]

Man/machine magician Boris Divider unleashes his fourth album. Continuing his explorations and escapades into the darkest, iciest realms of electronic music, Deflector/Atractor is perhaps his most extensive collection to date as we’re treated to shimmering ambient bliss (“Particle”) to dreamy, skippy, robot-charming fracturism (“Mikrowelt”) via his more classic, straight up funky electro (“Deflector”). Yet another bold march into the coded unknown for both Boris and Fundamentals, this can’t be slept on.
