Thibaut Devigne Another album of subtle electronica that will also cater to the listeners who want the ambiant feel. It does not sound electronic, parts feel organic. It is all really well done. CReam of the cream. Favorite track: Meteor heart.

Dotflac Love letter to forgotten analog machines, Can You Prove I Was Born curls us up into crackling loops of faded samples and the peculiar warmth of tapes.

In a manner reminding me the last Konntinent's album on Home Normal, Shuttle358 unwinds tones and noises that seem really personal. Allowing us to get a glimpse of his privacy, the abundance of decaying sounds might be the mirror of the artist's mind, trying to go back in blurry times...

A soothing and immediate release. Favorite track: Dirty sunkiss.

ryan From SHUTTLE358 comes another crisp, solitary electronic autumn. I know that timbre, myself. Favorite track: Can you prove I was born.

With the days of synthetic minimalism fading beyond the horizon in our rear view mirror, we pick up where Chessa (12k1030) left off. In his most bold and experiential work yet, Shuttle358 (Californian Dan Abrams) pulls you into a highly immersive blend of cinematic loops met with warm analogue performances, fragments of long ago spools of mellotron tape, piano string plucking, hazy guitar processing reminiscent of Abrams’ Fenton project, and field recordings under the stars.

The first in several different upcoming works from one of 12k’s most revered and respected artists, Shuttle358’s long-awaited new album Can You Prove I Was Born is a melancholic bedtime story; a familiar aura. A mobius strip.

Created and mastered for vinyl with artwork featuring Polish photographer Ada Augustyniak, whose forest landscapes echo the cosmic motifs of the album. The jacket is beautifully printed on heavy-weight stockwith a silver foil inlay and the pressing is on 180g virgin vinyl. It is limited to 500 copies.
