Obergman – Pyroclastic Flo [STILLEBEN057]

Ola Bergman returns on Luke Eargoggle’s excellent Stilleben label. The four tracks he’s delivered are as strong as you’d expect, with the veteran Swedish producer choosing to flit between cuts built around druggy, Italo-disco style arpeggio basslines, and more electro-framed workouts. Such is the quality of material on show that picking highlights is tough, though we’re particularly enjoying the gently intergalactic positivity of basement chugger “Fibonacci Horizon”, the Drexciya-influenced outer-space electro weightiness of “Olympus Mons” and the hazy “Pyroclastic Flow”, where lilting, “Selected Ambient Works” style chords and melodies ride a muscular, all-action dark Italo groove.

Kuldaboli – Heilastormur [STILLEBEN055]

Kuldaboli is part of the Stilleben family and has helped define its sound with his searing take on electro. This time around he dials back the crazy and offers up some more thoughtful and mysterious electro that kicks off with the bottom-wiggling boom bap and gurgling bassline of “Eolileg Mannvera”. Things slow down on the more eerie and unsettling “Kaldir Straumar” then its an all out computer game assault on “Lazer Tag” which is pristine digital perfection. “Where Are You” is a real floor wrecker and last of all alien life forms inhabit the haunting “Vakan Endalausa”.

VA – Stilleben 052 [STILLEBEN052]

Stilleben’s latest EP is a no-holds-barred, all-action affair that gathers together previously unheard cuts from a quintet of label associates. Boss man Luke Eargoggle is naturally involved, with his hook-up with Swedish veteran Ola Bergman – the angular analogue bass, Italo-disco influenced grooves and shimmering chords of “Macho Macho” – being amongst the EP’s many highlights. You’ll find more razor-sharp, mind-altering robo-bass propelling Das Muster’s brilliant opener “Sinnestauschung” towards the electro stratosphere, while IXRQ’s “Robotic Nature” brilliantly combines ghostly, crystalline synthesizer melodies with a suitably dirty, club-ready electro groove. The most intense and sweaty cut of the lot, though, is Suicider’s suitably dystopian and psychedelic closing cut “Trainwreck”.

The Hacker – Propagande EP [STILLEBEN048]

Finally we can announce that The Hacker is onboard at the Stilleben ship with some amazing electro that lurks in the shades of Kraftwerk and other fine electronic acts, but with his own significant style and signature. 3 electro songs and one more italo/electro disco that was hidden on a old hard disk. We are very happy to continue the electro journey on Eargoggles Stilleben with this strong and beautiful release.

VA – Stilleben 045 [STILL045]

After some quiet years Stilleben Records is back. This VA 12″ goes on in exactly the same style as earlier records from Stilleben. A mix between electro and electro disco. Many records are planned and in the making right now for the future to be heard. This 12″ has a nice mix from E.R.P’s more 4/4 and harmonic melodies to more stiff electro-funk from up north.
