Applescal & Hessel Stuut release debut album as Deltawerk

Screen Shot 2017-05-09 at 13.13.44

Deltawerk is the newly Amsterdam based project of Pascal Terstappen aka Applescal and Polynation member Hessel Stuut. Together they are releasing their debut full length LP, entitled “Passages”, June 16th through Atomnation on a 4-vinyl.

Passages - 4LP - 02

 
Applescal has to date released on labels including Ghostly International and Traum Schallplatten, while the efforts for his own label Atomnation have seen him welcome music from the likes of Gidge, Weval, David Douglas and Sau Poler, amongst others. Voted at a very respectable #03 for XLR8R’s coveted ‘Best New Act’ in 2015, Hessel Stuut is a member of Polynation and has significant experience not only playing live music, but as a producer, visual artist and designer too.

Together, they form Deltawerk, a dynamically electronic duo whom when united create human and lucid music, which feels as much at home in an underground rave as it does in an open-air live performance. While there is a faint echo of artistic collision, the album undoubtedly provides an eerie sense of unity for both Pascal and Hessel’s own discography, conserving the warm subculture of analog and modular instrumentation.

Deltawerk - 01 - Rein kooyman

 
Sitting shoulder to shoulder with the full-length LP is Deltawerks’ live performance which comes complete with a visual show. The concept is based on a fly-by where you enter new worlds as the music progresses. With the use of a 270 degree screen setup, the show can be a truly immersive experience: the audience travels past unearthly landscapes through “passages”. The 4LP cover art is inspired on this visual concept and are both created and designed by Hessel Stuut.

The album seamlessly works its way into the listener’s psyche and is certain to achieve decorated underground status. Whether it’s the ethereal choral textures of “Sample”, the fiery and propulsive percussion of “Departer” or the ecstatic atmosphere’s of “Kyte”, Passages is an album that is both dynamic and emotive with crushing poignancy. The vinyl comes with two remixes (by Marvin & Guy / Audiojack) on the D side for album track “Corridor”, which released digitally earlier this year.

“Deltawerk – Passages” is out June 16th, pre-orders are available now.

New Portable Sunsets album coming up May 19th

120720-PortableSunsets

Portable Sunsets is the project of artist and electronic music producer Peter Segerstrom based in Brooklyn, US. He previously released his full-length album ‘Bless’ on Atomnation, an LP as ‘Surfing’ on 1080p and another Portable Sunsets LP on Deadelus’ Magical Property label. ‘Order’ is the follow up of these records and is a dreamy, somewhat lo-fi experimental techno LP.

Combined with an ancient ambient undertone, ‘Order’ is not loosing its club ready vibe. This record floats somewhere between laid-back warehouse techno and the electronica genre – very much representing a unique style: Peter often uses his own voice in his productions, programmed through self-created synths in MAX/MSP. Vocals have become textures and are used as a synth, pad or soundscape.

The combination of genres makes ‘Order’ a perfect record to dream away on at home, as well as to dance to in clubs. We’re proud to release the new Portable Sunsets album May 19th and it’s available to pre-order now on a 2LP and digitally.

Atomnation Podcast #006 Koett

podcast6 Koett

The Atomnation Podcast series is a monthly curated mix by friends and like minded artists of the label. Follow us on SoundCloud and Mixcloud for updates.

For our sixth podcast we’ve invited our Russian friend Koett. He contributed two amazing albums to the Atomnation discography and is one of the leading figures of Krasnodar’s electronic music scene.

koett_750_507_75_s
 

The beginning
First influenced by the almighty Kraftwerk, Koett really got into music by his bigger brother. He would bring him recordings of party’s on cassette, which motivated Koett to search for ways to create his own music. Ableton and especially analog gear and old Soviet synthesizers made him even more enthusiastic about music production. From there on he started his career as an electronic music producer, as well as participating in side projects as Modul and Köt & Wellbeck.

Alexander Tochilkin (Koett’s real name) first released on Atomnation in November 2013. His ‘Lost Time’ single was an adventurous and Jazzy approach to the electronic field at the time. A month later Alex released his first full-length album ‘Golden Peak’ on the label. Tracks as ‘Blacksad’ and ‘Down’ became instant hits as Dummy Mag, Data Transmission, Truants Blog and many others praised it to the stars.

Releasing music
From that point on Koett has been putting out music on labels as Connaisseur Recordings, Sub Amp and Fuselab. Even his collaboration with long-time friend Wellbeck got revamped with a release on the Argentinean Loob Label, before returning to Atomnation in 2016.

This return didn’t come casually, as he once again came with a full-length LP of unearthly electronics. This time even darker and more vivacious as before. Especially ‘Slow Run’, ‘Night Furia’ and ‘A Walk In The Spring Rain’ were like candy for everyone liking the road in between house, techno and electronica.

Krasnodar, Russia
What most people don’t know is that Koett is one of the key figures behind XOXO, a boundary-pushing club in his hometown Krasnodar. This city is situated in a unique part of Russia, near the black sea towards Georgia. It has a small but very strong electronic music scene and is pioneering in its region. This podcast showcases the Krasnodar techno sound and is a limp of what the future will bring for our Russian friend and father of his newly born son. Congratulations Alex!
