Dynamics by Hermetic

Dynamics by Hermetic

After careful Calibration, the opening of the Dimensional Rift occurred and Ascension to the source was established. Hermetic signals propagate out from the void, transmitting vibrational tendrils down into the 4th dimensional realms of the simulation. Through dedicated Samahdi, a state of Satori flows to the Humbled and phase coherence is achieved with the source.

Join the Hermetic order on another hyperspace journey through soundscapes of pounding beats, lush synths, glitching entities and an epic wall of sound production that transcends this mortal coil... if only for a little while :)

Instant Slack by Ear Mind Eye

Come get some !NSTANT SLACK! - A bright psychedelic EP from EME, full of reverb and breaks to lose yourself in sonics and the groove, inspired by OId School Rave, IDM and Acid.

Ear Mind Eye (aka Coolaid Crowley) is creating their own style of electronic psychedelic music. Hellbent on generating gyrations, sonic excitation and sensory awareness. Redefining their own idea of "rave" through a melding menagerie of psy, acid, underground techno to be consumed under the stars and out in the sun.

Coolaid Crowley produces under Fate Æffect for ambient, industrial, experimental electronic music project as a vessel for experimentation & creativity without restriction, producing electronica that is as multi-faceted as it is esoteric. Crowley also runs the underground electronic record label - Slice Records and is part of industrial/experimental band Clouds Above Chaos with fellow producer Gareth Fox (Tøn).

Ascension by Hermetic

With roots in Brisbane's Hip Hop, IDM & Progressive House scenes, Hermetic (aka Jed Elmer), moved back to his childhood home of Rainbow Beach, Queensland, Australia in 2009.

Life, Wife, Kids and Waves have chilled out the vibes a bit from those early days, bringing some peace, harmony and transcendence to this rides through hyperspace.

Come on a journey through an electronic soundscape of big beats, fluttering arps, thick synths and an epic wall of sound experience.

With influences from Aphex Twin to Devin Townsend; The Beatles to Bjork, it’s a bit hard to pigeon hole any particular genre for this release, it’s a musical call to adventure, to somewhere unknown but somehow familiar.

Parasomnia by Fate Æffect

Fate Æffect - Parasomnia
[Dark Ambient]

Introducing "Parasomnia": Fate Æffect's new Dark Ambient Electronic album that explores the realm of sleep disorders out now on Italian Ambient Label - Neotantra.

Guiding listeners through a haunting sonic landscape, Parasomnia delves deep into the mysterious realm of sleep disorders, inviting the audience to embark on a transformative musical journey before drifting off into slumber.

Drawing inspiration from various sleep disorders, Fate Æffect has translated these experiences into a unique musical language, effortlessly merging ambient textures creating ethereal and introspective soundscapes, enveloping the listener in an immersive tapestry of sonic whispers and hypnotic rhythms.
"Parasomnia" is designed to be experienced before entering the realm of dreams. Fate Æffect encourages
listeners to embrace the album as a tool for winding down, promoting a calm and meditative state of mind.

As the layers intertwine, they beckon the mind to wander, transcending the boundaries of consciousness and connecting with the deeper layers of the subconscious.

"Parasomnia" is set to release on 7 July 2023 on the Neotantra label.

Isolate by Warm Natural

Isolate is the new melodic breaks EP from Warm Natural.

Warm Natural is the dance music focused alias for Melbourne based producer Miles Cosmo Philip. Philip has been producing music for the better part of 15 years, infusing his tracks with house grooves, melodic breaks, and spacious ambient textures.

Always intrigued by the idea of music as a living breathing space, Warm Natural creates reverb drenched sounds that are as subtly detailed as they are massive, then layers them over glitchy distorted breakbeats and huge kick drums.

Like the memory of a warm hug, Warm Natural’s music taps into distant feelings of faded nostalgia and a vague desperate longing.

Listen on Spotify here:

Isolate follows up Warm Natural's EP Plastic Vanilla.

High Strangeness by Phase 7

It is the Year 2023. The world is slowly waking up to the fact that we have something in our skies and oceans that remains unexplained. While it has been part of science fiction for a very long time, these flying objects are increasingly a subject for serious scientists and researchers who are trying to get to the bottom of this mystery. This subject captures our imagination and makes many of us wonder what it’s all about…

With High Strangeness, Phase 7 has created a series of driving progressive trance tracks that evoke the search for answers and bring you up to scratch with the reality of this Phenomenon. The tracks are full of energy, supercharged like a UFO - and sure to make you dance! They’ll also inspire wonder and get you engaged with the modern mystery that we’re in. It is time to find out more about who we are… may the music inspire you to look deeper and lift you higher along the way!

Sideways Jonnie by Robodop Snei

Lean back, take a trip into the world of Sideways Jonnie. We all know what it’s like to be lost at some point in life. Sideways Jonnie takes you on a ride through the strife and the struggle and yet offers hope and reassurance. We’re all in this together and have more in common than we realise, particularly in lonely times.
Sideways Jonnie is a chilled out downbeat album that takes you on a deep journey before throwing you back into the world in a positive way. Full of psychedelic tones, textures and colours, the music lifts your mind into blissful spheres while your feet are planted on the ground. On this album, Robodop Snei blends acoustic guitar with modern electronic vibes, before taking it to a whole other level with his spaced-out lyrics and vocals. Take a trip with Sideways Jonnie.

Plastic Vanilla by Warm Natural

Plastic Vanilla, the latest EP from Warm Natural, utilises a muted palette of hollow synths and crackly beats to explore different emotional states. As Warm Natural, Miles Cosmo’s music probes areas of the human psyche that are difficult to describe. The title track Plastic Vanilla swings with a distant frigidity before opening up to an exuberant crescendo of grainy monosynths. This duality is present in all of Cosmo’s work, feelings of deja vu, faded nostalgia, and the call of the void, juxtaposed with playfulness and verve. There's a cautious intrigue that flows through this EP with Return pulsing through its runtime with alien machine rhythms, and Stages cycling through its many phases seamlessly with eccentric flair. Plastic Vanilla’s three tracks develop organically and with warmth and enthusiasm whilst maintaining an air of distant fragility and numbness. This is Plastic Vanilla.

What Are We Rolling For?

What Are We Rolling For? It's always good to pose a question.

EME's 3rd EP of original psychedelic music, sprouted from ideas on tracks produced between 2010-2018, from a time when purity levels were higher. This psychonauts' excursion is inspired by the cyborganic counter culture and relatable experience in back yard sheds. Using creative procrastination, giving things time to happen themselves, (to be an "equal sign" in the equations of occurrences), finally the tracks are untethered in 2022.

Roll the dice, be the llama, and come convulse to the frequency, the rhythm, the vibration and activate the mystic path to gland curdling abundance.

Spliced (vol 1)

Spliced (vol 1) - An eclectic mix of genres and styles from artists out of Melbourne and Toronto.

Slice happened by accident. In 2008, three starry-eyed musicians came together and dreamed up the idea of doing events having a focus on emerging artists and the the tagline: 'Live 'n Local Electronica’. With the support of artists, venue owners and label managers, Slice set about organising and promoting club events with a rotating roster of talented individuals writing music on the fringe of the Australian psychedelic, breakcore and industrial scenes.

After an intense push from Damiano of Tempest Recordings, Slice Records was launched in 2011. A fæteful trip to Canada saw Slice expand our dedicated crew of international fans and collaborators, eventually resulting in musical relationships built across the world.

In recognition of this, and all the parts and people in between, we've named our latest compilation 'Spliced-' a celebration of different influences, styles, original artists and the friendships we've made through the years.

Splice: To interweave; the process of joining or a joint made by weaving or connecting the ends together.

Dylab - Atoms for Peace

With Atoms for Peace, dyLAB smashes together percussive particles into 5 tracks of high intensity techno embodied with acid. “Energetic Earth” is an overdriven 13 minute percussive odyssey. “Building Material” takes a sharp turn into serious house vibes. Undersea Frontiers turns the acid up to 11 with screaming 303 lines orbiting driving techno rhythms. ”Electronic Intelligence” sparse blasts of noise and bleeps attract and repel, fusion and fission imperfectly balanced. “Triga” slams metallic industrial snares over the buzz of atomic electricity. The EP closes with Ear Mind Eye’s Akula remix of “Undersea Frontiers” taking the 303’s acid line into trance territory concluding in a catastrophic meltdown.

Escaped from the Vault by Son of Zev

Back in a time when it was cheaper to buy synths from the thrift shop than to buy a computer and when mobile phones were tiny and couldn’t take photos, a young musician known as Son of Zev was performing Live Techno almost every week and working a crappy full time job. When doing neither of those things he was usually raving. Those gigs were often small raves in dirty warehouses, and grimy pubs and clubs and the occasional “big event”.
In between doing that, he would occasionally sequence and record some of the material and burn it on a CD to send off to promoters as a demo. These tracks featured on this mini EP are recorded straight to stereo, mixed and tweaked live. No editing, no multitrack fancy mixing, just raw. Never released and never uploaded...
Cut forward to 2021, and Son of Zev is clearing out old boxes of this ancient technology and stumbles across a backup CD-ROM. Poor and Pane were two of his dancefloor “bangers” of the time (although there was no such term) and capture the essence of those parties. Now they’ve escaped from the vault.

Check out Son of Zev's interview on Naga Mag here:

This album is going back to Robodop Snei’s original style - quirky electro songs with vocals, melodies and an upbeat vibe all the way through. The vision was to write these songs always using a rolling baseline, a vocal part with multiple voices & vocoders and a great melody hook line. All songs have been composed and produced between March and October 2020 amidst two Melbourne Lockdowns which impacted the making of this album greatly. I uploaded live performance videos of each of these songs on YouTube throughout the year as soon as they where ready to go. They are still there and reflect the great time I had with these songs.
I hope you do, too! - Danny

Domum Sinica by Acidalius

Slice presents Acidalius' new Ep Domum Sinica. A regular artist of Acid Slice nights in Melbourne and much like his live sets - this release brings a vibrant groove - laced with acid.

These recordings are from the last years' of the Pre-pandemic Period, during which Acidalius was constantly travelling between Australia and China with only his trusty Digitakt for company.
The tracks reflect on his experience of constant transition between the windy, pristine Victorian Southern Ocean coastlines (where Acidalius and Modal reside), the mega-city Shanghai (home of Prismatic Force/Shanghai Ultra), and rustic rural small towns of Jiangsu and Anhui Province.

"Looking forward to a time when we can all play, perform and party together again - Valens Acidalius, Anglesea, August 2020".
released September 3, 2020

All tracks written & produced by Acidalius.
Track 4 remixed by Shanghai Ultra.
Track 5 remixed by Modal.
Track 6 remixed by Prismatic Force.

Prelest by Clouds Above Chaos

Prelest is the archived output of an installation conceived for, and performed at 2018's Hillscene Live festival in the Dandenong Ranges of Victoria, accompanied by compositions from the artists as individuals which, through no direct involvement, communicate similar themes.

Part 1-2 [Side A] comprises the Prelest recordings, for which a strict set of conditions were established: all material should be generated in real-time; the visual element was to be constructed in direct response to the aural component; attention should be directed towards building hypnotic aural/visual stimulus emulating the mystical experience of visionary states.

Part 3-4 [Side B] is a collection of recordings made by Clouds Above Chaos in their respective studios for their own edification and the exploration of their own mental processes.

The artistic intent of the release is to bring into question the validity of using modern methods of signal generation to induce hypnotic and mystical states of consciousness, and whether exploiting the human brains' tendency towards pareidolia and responding to sensory overload by entering into trance is a useful spiritual tool, or if it only leads to a state of spiritual delusion- the definition of Prelest itself.

The listener is invited to temporarily suspend their state of external distraction and listen to the output of these experiments at a volume level just below discomfort, in a state of either visual overstimulation by way of computer-generated geometric visualisations, or having deprived their visual senses entirely by way of sitting in a completely dark room or otherwise diminishing the visual faculty for the duration of the performance.
As an extension of the exercise, utilising a method of focus on the breath is also recommended for the duration in order to further align the experient with the desired field of subjective inquiry.

Chronophage by Various Artists

Slice is very proud to announce the 40th release by our label, a compilation we call “Chronophage”. Comprised of 20 pre-released tracks highlighting various eras of Slice and 20 more previously unreleased cuts from producers from Melbourne and Toronto! We’ve got 40 ways to close out the idiocratic hellscape that is 2020 with a diverse range of underground electronic music.

This year has been very difficult for everyone. In our circle and wider collective we have felt the lack of gigs, loss of jobs, financial stresses, and negative impacts the pandemic has had on mental and physical health. It has also been difficult for the music industry being relegated and delegitimised by governments and other so-called “authorities”.

This compilation is a celebration of art and artists everywhere; a tribute to what we bring to the world. The art and communities we create stand in stark contrast to the oppression and wilful destruction of the environment we face today.

Amidst the chaos, music has, and always will, help people get through the most arduous times.

Massive thanks to all the artists and our supporters over the years. Hope you enjoy the Chronophage.

Us by Jimmi-Woods, Arcane Trickster

Jimmi-Woods and Arcane Trickster team up for an excursion into Psy Prog and Trance with "Us" - a diverse three-track tribute to human strength in times of adversity.
This EP muses on the cosmic thread that binds Us together, that we are not a product of, or defined by the system we have created. We are inner and outa-dimensional beings, energy existing both here and now and light years beyond the solar system.
The exclamation of "Us" echo’s in our minds and out into deep space...

Residue by Geist Contagion

Hatched in 2018, Geist Contagion is the latest solo project from Jonathan Haus of the Toronto-based glitch band The Databats.

Geist Contagion’s second EP “Residue” is an experimental electronic journey through spaces, outer and inner, inspired by concepts such as communications intelligence, government mind control, and the degradation of our physical environments. The EP’s frenetic beats and soaring synths create a hypnotic atmosphere of modern ambivalence, mirroring our own frenzied lives in late stage capitalism.

Constructed utilizing a myriad of analog, digital, modular and virtual synthesizers, “Residue” weaves in and out of genres and conventions to create a retro, yet modern textile of experimental electronic music.
released August 14, 2020

All tracks written & produced by Jonathan Haus.
Recorded at 974 Studios in Toronto, Ontario, Canada 2018-2020.

Winter Silence by Tok'ra, Psychoacoustic Vision

From the archives of Staefn's favourite unique productions comes "Winter Silence"!
A 2-track concept release of Tok'ra / Psychoacoustic Vision's latest manifestation of wildly psychedelic and masterfully progressive techno, now available on Slice Records.

There’s something strange about the caustic breeze at the Swamp Carnival tonight. The smell of mould overshadows your thoughts as garlands of blinking lights float above and ahead of you. Regardless, you enter the swamp towards the sound of distant horns. The dense cold liquid supports your body as you progress deeper, confused by the mechanical sounds sporadically occurring without any discernible presence. Small vibrations in the swamp begin to generate waves, hitting you in the face and blocking your vision from noticing the giant machine breaching the swamps' surface.
Distressing sounds radiate from its presence, something doesn't sound right. Is it communicating? Is it conscious? What is causing these broken sounds? The premonition that something is not right grows stronger. You turn around but the swamp is too thick- you can’t move. The sounds get more chaotic as the machine gets closer; its' oscillatory messages are making less sense as your mind breaks down. Disorientated from the unceasing sounds you give in, sucked into the swamp, struggling to keep your head up to breathe as you are being slowly dragged under. Your eyes open momentarily to see the machine extend itself to encompass you, engulfing you and claiming you as its' own. Everything turns black and you feel warm.
Slowly, you descend into winter's silence.

Winter Silence’s dark textures evolve, layering slowly as drums pulse ominously in the background, becoming louder as sirens blare only to disappear into themselves as the acid undertones rise in its wake. Your thoughts burrow into tunnels as the pitter-patter of unseen footsteps are heard all around you. You pause to gain your thoughts, to find an exit. The siren returns once more, embittered, angry, betrayed. You leave the tunnel but the siren gets louder.Your only choice is to turn back and follow the trails the acid left behind. The siren is antagonised.
The tunnels contract and close on you; as if they are alive. Your fading consciousness realises with muted horror that they have been waiting for you, and in some manner have been willed into existence precisely in order to consume you.
Satiated, these sentient hallways of darkness expand once more, as the silence of winter descends once again upon the landscape.

Caustic Grip - Toxic Rift

lice Records is proud to present our newest EBM Industrial release from Caustic Grip - Toxic Rift.
Naarm’s (Melbourne, Australia’s) Caustic Grip has been creating hard and dark rhythmically charged electro-industrial since early 2018 with a variety of releases produced since inception, showcasing the ever evolving sound of the project.

New EP TOXIC RIFT is a huge step in Caustic Grip’s aforementioned evolution!
A heady mixture of multiple Industrial genres, darkwave, electro pop, goth and electronic body music, the EP reaches dark new depths of sonic depravity, textural exploration and bleak lyrical imagery. A synth charged, boot stomping assault of harsh infectious rhythm, melodic hooks and baritone voice, TOXIC RIFT is here, drenched in sweat and wrapped in leather!

Featuring remixes from the beautifully dark stylings of Elenor Raynor of “Robots In Love” (Sobriquet, Keyboardist for Snog) and Experimental Industrial artist “ Fate Æffect”.

Available of Cassette Tape and digital here:
