It’s our biggest line-up to date and we’ll set foot in one of Amsterdam’s most intimate venues: OT301.

A great opportunity to say hello, enjoy the music, visuals and bring home some records. See you the 18th!

Atomnation celebrates its 50th release with a Various Artists compilation featuring new work of artists it has worked with in the past. Launched in 2012 as a Bandcamp-only imprint, the label quickly made name in the underground scene by releasing titles from its co-founder Applescal and newly born acts such as David Douglas, Weval, Sau Poler and Gidge. Over the years also Polynation, Olaf Stuut, Portable Sunsets and Koett joined the club. Latest signings Tunnelvisions & Axefield appear on the compilation as well.

The Amsterdam based label released all kinds of records that cross the ambient, electronica and house genres – some of them reaching cult status such as Weval ‘Half Age EP’, Gidge ‘Autumn Bells’ and David Douglas ‘Spectators Of The Universe’. This VA 2LP represents everything of what the imprint stands for and what may have become the Atomnation sound: a fresh group of artists – all excelling in their own way – offering 11 tracks that have a playful, distinct and intelligent approach.

Gidge “For Seoul” out now on vinyl

gidge website

The 2013 ‘For Seoul’ debut EP by Gidge is finally out on vinyl! The 2-track hymn to the South-Korean capital comes as a 12″ vinyl with on the b-side a remix by Applescal. The Swedish production duo, consisting of Jonatan Nilsson and Ludvig Stolterman, released the albums Autumn Bells, LNLNN and Lulin. ’For Seoul’ came about after the duo went on a trip through Asia, and spent a number of days in the city. They fell in love with Seoul, and later on created this two-part hymn for the giant city. There’s a limited amount of vinyl bundles available that contain the complete Gidge back-catalog. Orders ship this Monday.

Hessel Stuut and Stijn Hosman again surpassed themselves, as they played live at the editorial floor of the Volkskrant. Their set largely existed of unsigned material, but they also found space to premiere their new remix for David Douglas, which will see daylight on Atomnation soon.

Enjoy Polynation’s extraordinary talents and have a great weekend.

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.
