Press Info:
A1. Polygonia – Division
Right from the start the listener is cast into orbit with driving percussion and abstract sound effects. Soon they are followed with a morphing bass sound and cymbals which lock the groove into place, cranking the drive to the max. As the track progresses the landscape of sound reveals its nature with metallic quality, like schrapnel from a barren city. Truly a Deep Techno banger which will without a doubt fill a dance floor.

A2. MTRL – Taris
The listener is slowly submerged into the waves of percussive bass sounds and menacing sweeps of noise which remind of a storm in a desert, the horizon only slightly glimmering behind the veil of sand. Soon the listener is introduced with a pounding kick drum, almost making the landscape seem even more ruthless as the track progresses.
Quality, heady Deep Techno.

B1. Polygonia – Division (Claudio PRC Remix)
The hypnotic Techno maestro Claudio PRC twists the idea of the original track into a mind explorative voyage with a triplet feel. The remix is shrouded in melancholy with distant pad sounds, which add a nice tension to the track. As usual, a brilliant remix from Claudio PRC.

B2. MTRL – Taris (Mary Yuzovskaya Remix)
On the remix the Berlin based producer is molding the source material into a driving and psychedelic track, functional yet synapse tingling. Now the bass has a bit more liquid-like quality and the overall soundscape is more abstract. Hallucinatory effects of noise are filling the spaces between the sounds, almost like being surrounded with faint whispers. Driving and psychedelic Deep Techno done with finesse.

Press Info:
Regardless if you immediately associate the term metamorphosis with any kind of evolutionary adjustment, with shapeshifting, the complex transformation of music or if you simply think about the distinctive mark the last two years have left on basically each and everyone of us, it’s easy to agree that “Metamorphose“ is just the perfect title for JakoJako’s debut album for Bigamo.

JakoJako has made perfect use of the compulsory extra studio time regulated by the pandemic, developing and specifying a sound she instantly attracted attention with, as soon as she entered the scene in 2019 with her release on Leisure System.

“Metamorphose“ is one of those albums that can easily quiet a bustling room in an instant, regardless if you’re a connoisseur of this kind of music or not. It’s a compelling and highly absorbing collection of tracks, a surprisingly immersive experience designed for nocturnal listening (and beyond) that is difficult to not lose yourself within. Still the nine tracks on display feel almost like a paradox: they are fundamentally propulsive, yet they seem to decelerate time and space, they generate tension yet offer a weirdly soothing effect, they feel high-brow and imply endless intellectual stimuli yet they are deeply felt and simply want to provide simple truths about ourselves.

The most haunting aspect though might even be that it sounds utterly complete, even though the musical journey of this Berlin-based musician, producer and all-around gear-head has just begun.

Press Info:
Gudrun Gut and Mabe Fratti have worked together on a powerful hybrid album, where taut rhythms fuse with haunted vocal melodies and spoken word, and field recordings meld with extended ambient pieces. Limited edition of 500 copies on Yellow Transparent vinyl LP, digital downloads and streamings.

As part of Umor Rex’s 15th anniversary, we here present an album that builds a dialogue between two lands and two unique artists. Mexico is the origin and conceptual residence of our label, while Germany is where we produce and manufacture our records (Berlin functions as the center of distribution and logistics, thanks to our friends at Morr Music). The intertwining imaginations belong to German producer Gudrun Gut (Malaria!) —a notable figure of the subculture and the German music scene since the early 80s, and also a founder of Monika Enterprise and recipient of the ‘Listen to Berlin’ Award in 2019— and singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer Mabe Fratti (originally from Guatemala, now based in Mexico City). We knew about “Let’s Talk About The Weather” from the beginning, and since the moment Gudrun and Mabe made us part of their project, our excitement could not be greater.

The process started with Gudrun and Mabe having long distance conversations, asking about their whereabouts and discussing the weather. This might seem rather commonplace, but it works as a key thematic component for the entire album. The weather as the new great unknown, perceived through the optics of everyday life. Sound files were methodically exchanged, with Mabe exploring words and vocals, and Gudrun working with field recordings taken from each city. In the end, this joint musical venture would provide a healing effect for both artists during life in quarantine.

“Aufregend”, the opening track of the album, reflects upon a general lack of excitement in modern life. It wonders what the future might hold. Is it cold? Is it warm? Will it be the same? “Air Condition” is an eerie, dazzling collision of climates: the hazy warmth of Mexico City, the deep cold of Uckermark. The last track, which gives the album its name, is a long ambient piece composed of four parts: sound sculptures, field recordings of city life, news and weather forecasts, and private conversations about the climate. It’s kind of a collaborative diary, obsessed with a single, all-encompassing subject.

Produced and recorded by Gudrun Gut and Mabe Fratti between Berlin, Uckermark, Veracruz and Mexico City. Mixed by GGut at Stern Studio Mastered by John Tejada in Sherman Oaks, USA. Artwork & photos by Daniel Castrejón in Mexico City.

Special thanks to Goethe Institute, who contributed to the creation of this album with a Virtual Partner Residency support.

Press Info:
A charity album on the occasion of the 30th edition of “The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity”

We work in the structures of the club scene on a daily basis. We write about music, produce, organize events. We are united by a love of music, but also a willingness to help. The idea for a charity album was born in March 2021. From word to word, after weeks, we gathered the line-up of artists who were close to our musical tastes.

Many paired artists collaborated for the first time. The album does not lack producer debuts as well as experienced in this field. Everyone, without exception, agreed to take part in the project almost repeatedly, starting its implementation. The entire twenty-five (OTHK is a duo editor’s note) were extremely enthusiastic about the idea, confirming our belief in the rightness of the further implementation of the assumptions made at the beginning of the plan – make everything possible by January, the beginning of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity collection and auctions.

Unlike other auctions, this one will be unique. We have prepared ONE, ONLY album piece. A real vinyl “White Raven”, the production of which will never be repeated. An album that will have one owner, the only lucky one. For this purpose, we have prepared a unique cover, dedicated graphics and the white color of 12 ”discs symbolizing the eyes – an element strongly related to the theme of the jubilee 30th edition of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, that is, eyesight. This year’s finals will be held under the slogan “Look at your eyes”, and the fundraiser will be conducted in terms of children’s ophthalmology. This year’s goal of Jurek Owsiak and his fearless army is to ensure the highest standards of diagnosis and treatment of eyesight in children in Poland.

The auction of our album will take place on the website of the official partner of Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity – Allegro.pl. Not wanting to be limited only to the home yard, the album can also be auctioned in euro – which was what we wanted the most. We value the ability to reach the widest possible audience as much as the belief in collecting as much money as possible, which we will be able to add to the account of the most meritorious philanthropic foundation in the history of Poland.

It is said that it is worth helping. It doesn’t matter in what form. It doesn’t matter how much money is collected. One and only gesture can work wonders. That is why we hope that with our (and your) help we will be able to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life and health of many a child in need. Even more so by doing and loving what we actually do every day.

Thank you in advance for a small mention of our action. We want the news about it to spread as far as we can imagine.

With kindest regards and gratitude,

Marcin Pisarski / Internal Observer (owner of Unknown Timeline)
Damian Badziąg (editor of Muno.pl, Gdańsk)

P.S. After the auction is over, the individual EPs that make up the album will be available for purchase through the Unknown Timeline label in vinyl and digital form. Their number (single plates) will be very limited.
