Press Info:
Intimate Silence return this August with an album from Vault Series founder Subjected featuring eight ambient cuts entitled ‘Opera Scenes’.

Subjected has been an important figure within Berlin’s techno community in the last ten years with his Vault Series and Subjected System imprints playing host to some of the genres most exciting names. His recent releases on ARTS, Stoor, Vault Series and self-titled label showcases his vast exploration into the realms of ambient soundscapes and atmospheric techno with a hint of post-industrial influence. ‘Opera Scenes’ sees Subjected serve up his third LP to date joining Silent-One’s Intimate Silence label following the likes of Głós, Thomas Hessler, KAS:ST, PVNV, Dold and Pär Grindvik.

‘Unhuman Error’ begins proceedings with humming drones, haunting notes and tension building reverberations before stunning arp progression balanced with an oscillating bassline and stirring pads take the focus in ‘Odysee of Hope’. The euphoric ambience continues through to ‘Odysee of Hope’ that deploys angelic synth tones, atmospheric swells and calming waves leading into the errie ‘No Man’s Land – Interlude’ with poignant modulations and heavenly leads.

‘Losing Our Sense’ is filled with exquisite compositions offering up growling bass waves and ethereal elements. ‘Ω Beginning of Everything’ then deploys dramatic synth sequences, sparse textures and piercing frequencies until tantalising harmonics fuse delicately with undulating emotiveness and revolving flutters and pulses in ‘The Origin of Life’. To finish, ‘Love Will Never End’ rounds things off with a drone-filled spectacle through tranquilising sound design, cinematic moods and compelling atmospheres.

Press Info:
Thomas Hessler, Kas:st, Pär Grindvik, Glos, PVNV and Intimate Silence boss Silent-One team up for six alleviating, ambient cuts entitled ‘Traces’.

The Stuttgart based label have been making rapid progression within the beatless techno community since establishing themselves back in 2016. In addition to releasing ambient soundscapes to the highest standard they hold a regular radio show on Rinse France which acts as a firm reflection for their intricate, dronebased sounds. ‘Traces’ includes tracks from a new wave of promising techno names who offered earlier contributions on the label including PVNV, Glos and boss Silent-One, as well as IMF’s Thomas Hessler, French duo and Flyance label chiefs KAS:ST and Swedish figurehead Pär Grindvik.

Hessler’s ‘Pearl’ kicks off with warm pads, winding synth progression and delicate atmospheres before Kas:st’s ‘Are We Alone In The Universe’ delivers levitating ambience through tranquil chords, angelic leads and resonating stabs. Silent One’s ‘Snakes’ then patiently deploys growling tones wonderfully balanced with tense waves of shimmering low end.

Pär Grindvik lightens things up with ‘FZ Kolarbo’ which fuses uplifting elements and mellifluous notes with alluring charm whilst twisting melodies and euphoric modulations become ever present in PVNV’s emotive builder ‘Squal’. Glos’ ‘Silk (Figurine)’ then finishes things off by balancing calming voices, healing harmonics and trance-inducing softness.
