Dani Siciliano - Dani Siciliano

Feb 2, 2016

 Dani Siciliano’s latest album is self-titled for a reason; it represents a personal statement crafted by Dani’s own hand - feeding off her accomplished past in experimental pop and electronica and reaching to new tones and timbres in a celebration of musical liberation. Culminating eight years of songwriting, production research and sonic exploration, Circus Company is proud to present Dani Siciliano’s third solo album. Following her two previous solo LPs Likes…(2004) and Slappers(2007), Dani decided to focus on crafting as much of the album by herself as

Strategy - Information Pollution

Feb 2, 2016

 Like some ingenious combination of John Cage’s chance operations and the numbers station data stream captured on The Conet Project, Strategy’s new album immerses listeners in baffling sonic waters. It’s a riveting work that converts the enigmatic effluvia of shortwave and dispatch radio chatter into thrumming, staticriddled clouds of ambience. An undercurrent of unease wafts through Information Pollution’s four lengthy tracks, as barely audible molecules of aural junk never meant for public consumption get repurposed into an unsettling strain of inverted

Nuel - Hyperboreal

Feb 2, 2016

 Italian DJ and producer Manuel Fogliata hasn’t released a lot of records over the last ten years, but the few he has put out have always been worth tracking down. Perhaps best known for his work alongside Donato Dozzy in creating the much sought-after Aquaplano records at the tail end of the last decade, Nuel’s solo outings have been just as consistent and just as impressive. Whether taking on metallic electro or syrupy, bass-heavy ambience, Nuel’s attention to detail and his keen ear for a groove has made each release something to treasure. Nuel’s only

Recondite - Placid ( Cd Album + Bonus Cd "on Acid" )

Nov 9, 2015 ATCD06Special edition 2 CD Digipack , includes Debut Album: "On Acid" on CD2 for the first time ever on CD!
When Recondite, AKA Lorenz Brunner, emerged with his debut LP for Acid Test (2012's On Acid), we were still learning about the German producer's inward-looking dance floor sound. A few years later, his sinewy jams have proved near universal -- like an underground Zelig, he's fit perfectly everywhere from Rødhåd's Dystopian to Ghostly International and Innervisions.  Acid Test also allows Recondite the chance to indulge his more outréRead the whole story
