Press Info:
[~] marks a stunning new beginning for French artist Nil Hartman. The record combines a warm sense of improvisation with a sleek computer music aesthetic.

Hartman created [~] through livecoding, an approach using text commands in a programming language to compose and perform music in realtime. What you hear on the record is raw, unedited, one-take recordings. Hartman explains: “These versions are unique, I’ll never be able (or willing!) to play them identically.” The astonishing result is not only a technical tour-de-force but a profoundly emotional journey.

The French artist previously enjoyed early success touring Europe festivals with melody-driven club bangers. Following a complete overhaul of his studio craft through a decade of secluded experiments, he now emerges with a deeply personal approach to electronic music.

[~] was recorded live on July 12th and July 30th, 2020. All tracks arranged and performed in realtime using algorithmic langage Tidal Cycle. All sounds generated in realtime using various types of synthesis. The record was mixed and mastered by the artist.

Infinite love and gratitude to LC, Emaël, Siam and familly, Géraud, Pierre, Kevin, Mondkopf, Jb Hanak, Melted Self and Nicolas Bougaïeff. [~] is dedicated to Louisiane.

Press Info:
Hailing from the city of Pereira, the producer and live act Gotshell debuts on Bpitch Berlin, a wide-ranging and potent 8-track EP, crispy modular system sounds, produced in solidarity with the ongoing protests in his native Colombia.

Gotshell made his name through appearances on Mord, Planet Rhythm, Nachtstrom Schallplatten, EPM and James Ruskin’s Blueprint. Prolific, diverse and unpredictable, his productions weave together classic old school techno loops, IDM, breaks and experimental noise. As a live performer, his freewheeling and psyche- delic sets at festivals like Freedom in Colombia and Jungle Groove in Ecuador, plus underground clubs in Chile, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Tresor Berlin have earned him an international following.

Produced against a backdrop of poverty, inequality and protest met with violent government reprisals, Rezagados is an outcry against the Colombian government’s repression of dissent and creation of what the producer calls a ‘distorted reality that minimizes hope’.

Across 8 tracks Gotshell is in full flight, ranging from twisted cross-rhythmic techno to intricate, stuttering IDM. Moments of darkness are balanced by flashes of light, sounds of nature and searching euphoria, before the EP’s deep and contorted climax. It’s the sound of a producer restless and determined to resist.

Press Info:
Colombia is a country characterized by the absence of the state in rural areas, the systematic oppression of the lower social classes due to lack of security, access to education and health. If you belong to a minority (Afro, indigenous, peasant, Roma, LGBT) and live in the countryside, your life is in constant danger due the paramilitary groups, the narco-guerrilla and cartels. If you are a person who goes out to protest, then your life is in constant danger due the police and infiltrated people in the protests pushing the violence and chaos.

A necrophiliac country marked by its impunity. Death is normalized and supported by the impunity of violent acts against civil society by narco-paramilitary groups, guerrilla militias or the police and ESMAD.

After more than a month of protests, two reforms overthrown (Tax Reform and Health Reform), the civilian population continues to take to the streets. This is why we went out, this is why we raise our voices, for the dignity of our people, for the desire for justice, for the future of peace.

Press Info:
Is this a man-made rendering or is it the work of nature? The new-age enigma. Both are in some ways true.

Fluxing between hard-wired reality and digital construct, this storming new EP by Rome’s Conrad Van Orton kicks off a new arc of releases on Counterchange this season.

Processing synths through an external acoustic chain, micing up guitar amps and sending the whole mix into his vintage analogue desk, the rich tonal warmth and renegade attitude of CVO’s work is hard to ignore.

In collaboration with Berlin’s Disc Archive, a maximum of 50 10-inch records will be shipped out carrying tracks, ‘In Lontananza’ and ‘Bewilderment.’ Each one is unique, hand-cut and numbered. A permanent engraving of a time, a place and a state of mind.

We are in the presence of an EP composed by four original tracks and two remixes. The Cuban artist brings us an industrial concept with very elegant touches while exploring new horizons. Mystical voices and intricate rhythms is what we can listen in this release. Delicate sound processing and careful attention to details are also defining traits of these tracks and make them essential tools for any set. Masterful remixes by French artist Crystal Geometry and Canadian duo Orphx complement this package.
