  1. Imagine being able to live forever in a small, warm, intimate home. A mental space, a haiku. Imagine feeling the walls of this environment, gently touching them with your fingertips, savoring the essence of its thousand past inhabitants. Now you’re in charge, a humble guardian of the secrets of this peaceful environment. A domestic place, close but at the same time unknown and nostalgic.You are the keeper of this small house, of this mental space forever. We need to return to an intimate and thoughtful listening. We deeply need a spiritual rebirth, a self-medication. We must go back to being the only explorers of our deepest essence.Now you’re in this warm and small space, lost in a forest of paper and smoke.These three improvisations have been deliberately recorded with worn out equipment: a tiny sampler, a Korg Poly 800, burned and rigorously in mono, a small hand recorder. Rosalegno was recorded directly on a 50-year-old TAYA, where you can hear the decadence of the tape towards the second half of the song and where the wobbling becomes more intense, reminding of a cry.The album is a tribute to the so called New Age on cassette era, to those old Harmony tapes that accompanied the childhood of some of us. There is a need to revive that self-discovery, knowing how to isolate oneself and believe in what makes us feel really good. That is why the tape version of the album L’abbaglio was multiplied or actually recycled, on old 90's tape albums, so the whole nostalgic feeling, hauntology concept and cassette tribute cycle is complete. We are the keepers of our mind, forever. Carlo Giustini is a field recordings, tape manipulator, sound researcher and experimental musician based in Treviso, Italy. His music combines field recordings, warm organic drones and deep haunted sounds caught with contact microphones on micro-cassette recorders and other old audio gear. His previous albums released on the labels Lontano, Shummering Moods, ACR, Purlieu, No Rent and Bad Cake Records, attracted huge attention between the ambient music community.
  2. Four decaying tape loops of different length running over and over simultaneously for hours in a empty room.This is an extract from a 3-hours recording session. Free download (name-your-price)
  3. You should check the Andrea Porcu's Music For Sleep project, if you like long-form drone music. I was just listening to this one!
  4. Out today on Limited Edition Cassette. Music For Sleep is Rosh! Records' Andrea Porcu, who's been quite prolific in the last couple of years, releasing some of the best long-form tunes for relaxed activities and, actually, sleeping. Some may come from new age territories, others are more drone-oriented or even in Indian raga style, but overall it's a perfect soundscapes to fill your room and create a relaxed space for your mind and body to rest and re-energize before a new day. On this latest offering, Andrea creates a beautiful lush of nature sounds and gentle synth loops, swirling and spiraling around in the burbling of water, bird songs and crackling of the campfire. Basically, nothing can go wrong with such a recipe as it was proven since the golden years of the New Age genre and it' always nice to see such tunes being released in 2020, when we need those moments of serenity more than ever.(Review by Calm In The Trees - calmintrees.blogspot.com/2020/02/sleeping-patterns.html)
  5. What are you left with… when the fringe of it intercedes your objection.. The fullness of silence unveils more emptiness. (and more). You’re left with it. Here in the stillness. Streams and droplets usually come in in fragments. Fragments and a quilt of memories, feelings, a time. A sunroom with her beams pouring in, through.It was a full-moon night and the moon was rising.... The master remained silent for a long time; didn't say anything. And then suddenly he came to life and said, 'Look at the cypress in the courtyard.' A beautiful cool breeze was blowing and playing with the cypress and the moon had just come above the branch. It was beautiful, incredible... almost impossible that it could be so beautiful.

  7. ~'Worn' was written in the summer of 2019 and was recorded using Yamaha MT3X multitrack cassette recorder.The cassette tape itself was an old cassette tape which I used to record voice memos on when I was little.The recording process involved the recording of several sketches, which I then revisited and overdubbed every week over the course of 2019's summer.In many ways, this album has been turning in my head since 2015, when my studies took me to Finland.During this period, my roommate and I found this dead fox in the snow, taking this photograph.Since then I've found myself thinking about the grass and the fox, and the dead fox and the grass, and how beautiful their colours both were. Sometimes it seems to me that life's a process of wearing and of being worn, and, just like the tape, in many ways my process began back then, with the fox and its colours.I'd like to thank my girlfriend, my family, my friends, who've helped me be better. Heartfelt thanks goes to Brose and Samwel for the constant constructive feedback. Thank you also to Andrea for making this release possible.~

  9. Previously released on Pdxindubting in 2016 on cassette, now is available through ROHS! on CD edition (50 copies) https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com/album/live-from-unknown note: **Free download (name-your-price) till release date** Courtesy of PDXINDUBTING. Shifting rhythms and pulsing tectonics from ROHS! headquarters Live From Unknown is the 3rd album from Sardinian born musician Andrea Porcu. Built with analog gear, the sound is emotive and expansive. Not easy to slot into one style or another, it's a true example of dub laden techno music. The Wire Magazine (review): Andrea Porcu Live From Unknown PDXINDUBTING! DL/MC Little is known about Andrea Porcu, whose aliases include No Politics and Whacky, other than he is Sardinian born, currently based in Berlin and, since late 2007, has been running an under the radar label via Bandcamp called ROHS!. The music it has released in all formats falls mainly in a deep dubtech vein. Best known artists in the roster are Xoki & Hieronymus, who were recently on ZamZam Records out of Oregon. Another figure worth investigating is Desove – Polish musician Pawel Granacky – for his Cruising album from last year. The prevailing sounds on the label are related to but much less beat-laden than Chain Reaction. Ambient washes are prevalent and percussion sounds more muffled; but this new one from Andrea Porcu himself is much more reggae dub centred, and it perhaps best relates to some of the shorter, more focussed outings of Stephen Hitchell in his Intrusion guise, it’s that impressive. “Roll Haze” even sounds whimsically jump up, with a repeated sax line intervention quoting “Get Up, Stand Up”. But the moodiest track is “Leaving Chichibabin”. Carrying a clear dread sound, it’s really in need of a deep cut direct to vinyl.
  10. Limited Edition CD (60 hand-numbered copies) GALATIMOSCONI is a collaboration between Roberto Galati and Federico Mosconi.Their first record, 'Penombra', was recorded trying to maintain a live approach, genuine and spontaneous.With 'Dissolve' they decided to exchange ideas and sounds from their own studios, focusing on the richness of their different musical languages and the consequent possibility of making converge their diverse paths in a shared direction.Tracks slowly have evolved, sounds have been added and subtracted, mixing each of both artist's individual styles.They combined guitar parts processed with Ableton’s Max for Live and Max/MSP, field recordings, synthesisers and a hint of violin, in order to create huge and immersive sounds, dense and layered motifs, that then dissolve, and slowly turn off.'Dissolve' reflects two sonic viewpoints as a whole.
