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!

Some Chemistry’s remix for Olaf Stuut’s ‘Run’.

Whether as a DJ, in the studio, or curating well-respected events in clubs such as Studio 80 and Marktkantine, Some Chemistry’s music switches between a melodramatic kind of indie house and more uncompromising atmospherical sound. Here, Some Chemistry remixes one of Atomnations favourites, Olaf Stuut, a musician who always tells a story, with strong vibes, challenging harmonies and melodic sounds. Download for free at Deep House Amsterdam.

Sekuoia – Beau (Polynation Remix)
The standout track, however, is Polynation’s remix of “Beau”: blending a tribal feel with laid-back production, it drives forward with a cool intensity peppered by bold drums—making for a track that’s trance-like, meditative and uplifting all at once.” – Bitchslap Magazine

Listen to Polynation’s remix via THUMP here:

Applescal @ Fuse, Brussels
Head honcho Applescal visited Belgium’s legendary techno club ‘Fuse’. The live recording of his set is up and is a pleasure to listen to: The Dutch artist, Applescal is back on our list with another powerful mix. Recorded live at the infamous nightclub in Brussels, Fuse, this mix is real peak time mix. Groovy, percussive and dark, it goes from house to techno and everything in between throughout the mix.” –  Fiction Lab
