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.

Press Info:
German producer Silent-One presents an ambient four track release on his own label Intimate Silence this February.

Part of the From Another Mind crew alongside Obscure Shape & SHDW and Javier Bähr, Silent-One (real name Benedikt Merkl) launched Intimate Silence as a platform for ambient music in 2016. Since then the label has hosted artists like Ressort Imprint regular Głós, Taapion Records co-founder PVNV and Arsenik Records’ Dold, however this release sees the label founder make his very own debut.

Fuzzy atmospherics and chilling chord sequences set the tone for the ominous ‘Human Border’ before ghostly synths and twinkling melodies work together to form ‘Decide Your Fate’. On the flip, mesmerising arpeggios meander within an echoing setting in ‘Sign of Anxiety’ until the murky ‘Lost Souls’ pairs dusky elements with a spoken word sample to create a sci-fi aesthetic to conclude the release.

Press Info:
Intimate Silence is back for its third installment – and turning its focus to France this time, away from the woods and off to the shore.

Known to be one of the curators of Taapion Records and an acteur in the Parisian scene, PVNV already gave us a hint of his knack for dreamy spheres floating underneath the Techno-ish foundation of his tracks with his previous work.

On his „Mind“ EP, he gets rid of the beats this time, and makes room for the sweetest melodies, grounded on arpeggio structures on ‘Mind End’ that still manage to give you an idea of rhythm. ‘Home Back’ makes you want to just drift on and on and open your eyes again when the sun already sets, just to give you enough strength to steer your boat back to the port with ‘Threshold’.

With this three tracks, PVNV finds just the right range and gives us a ride that pays justice to why we’re loving Ambient music so much.
