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.

Produced and mixed by Ear Mind Eye.
Mastered by Gareth Fox @ Studio Schizoid.

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.

In every sense of the word, this is a splendid joint we've rolled together, and we invite you to take a seat, kick back and join us in listening to some fine underground electronic music of 2022.

With love,
-Slice Crew

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. 

Produced and recorded by Dylab.
Mastered by Allan Klinbail @ S.T.E.A.M.
Track 6 remixed by Ear Mind Eye.
Cover by Ear Mind Eye. Inspired by Erik Nitsche.
