Calum Gunn is a Scottish electronic musician and programmer based in Berlin, Germany. His sonic recordings and performances (as well as his label Conditional) are legendary, and we are beyond proud and excited to be able to release his tunes on 3OP.
Excessive Step is of the most exciting albums I've listened to in recent memory, and we sense it's a classic in the making. Experimental, yet accessible. Emotive and contemplative, but never really nostalgic. Crisp, digital, modern: very much computer music, yet quite organic and human as well. The sonic symbiosis of human and machine in realtime. A kind of cybernetic perfection.
On the surface, this is a wicked collection of pure bangers, Tidal Cycles based jams, and DJ applications. But we are confident you'll find this this to be a tantalizing and very cohesive album experience, filled with adventure and character. It's futuristic electro, yet we've found that Excessive Step has a timelessness to it.
We hope you enjoy this sonic journey as much as we have over the last few months of many, many listens. I feel lucky to have had this in my playlist up to now. It really is so much FUN to listen to.

Absolute belter of an LP, a future classic IMO.
*** OUT NOW ***
William Fields uses his very own software composition tools to create some of the most compelling computer music you’ll hear. Quite the opposite of a click-bait gimmick, his FieldOS allows him to perform live breath-takingly human yet intricate improvisations. From the tip of his fingers to our hard drives, he can bang a stunning 5 minute piece of proper sonic wizardry... in 5 minutes. This belies the countless hours of development put into his compositional system.
Fluidity is a rather unique entry to Fields' discography. While I consider myself a proper fanboy of his output, I've never heard William venture into such luxuriant, at times serene, at times tectonic territories. The technical virtuosity never gets in the way of a delicate, rich, introspective listening experience.
While each tune explores its own singular logic, Fluidity offers a deep, engaging ethereal narrative : approaching this 7 tracker as a whole is extremely rewarding. Numerous images come to mind as the music tells its stories : what will yours be ?
We at 3OP are delighted to share Fluidity with you. The music is stellar, we know you’ll listen to Fluidity in repeat, just like we’ve been.

Core Alter is Steve Baxter and Elliott Watson. m-Realizable was made swapping sysex files back and forth between Brisbane, Australia, and San Diego, USA, mastered from the raw edits of its creative sessions.
m-Realizable is sonically equally spacious and dense, disruptive and meditative, fiercely digital and organic all at once. Opaque yet open-ended in its unfolding narrative and how you’ll distill the music.
Rather than hyping each tune, we urge you to dive in, and to absorb it fully. You might pick a few possible influences while listening to m-Realizable, yet I’m positive you’ll quickly realize how personal, honest, deep and singular this 7 tracker is.
As a related note, this is the perfect release to kickstart 3OP : the label almost created itself before our eyes (Elliott’s, Steve’s and mine), and it was a spontaneous yet obvious decision to release a Core Alter opus first. Asking Andrew Bates to handle visuals was our next move as a collective. I’m delighted I get to master our catalogue.
Dream team work at play.
This release is dedicated to the memory of our friend Salvatorin (Philip Josef Glowa).

As the title describes, a dear friend/producer of mine and I started a record label/community to promote music as a group.
The idea came to our minds while discussing about the diverse and awesome musicians we find almost by accident, how artists of less popular genres don´t get the exposition we believe they should, and also the fact that we tend to move our music (that´s our perception) as lone wolves.
So we didn´t think twice, made use of our enthusiasm (and some skills we learned throught the years) and developed an identity, designed a website, launched a blog and started to contact fellow artists too see if there´s people interested in joining us.
The name of the project is aquí yacen records, the spanish expression to say "here lie the records".
You can check our website right here: www.aquiyacen.com And this is an article with more information: www.aquiyacen.com/post/welcome-to-aqui-yacen We´re looking for artists who like what we´re doing and feel motivated to take part. It is free, no agreement and you would owe us nothing. Our earning and yours is to meet new cool artists and working with them to improve at what we do.
Thank you for reading!

"The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine
"Live coders write computer programs live, while the programs generate their music, but the focus is on people dancing and seriously enjoying themselves" - Dazed and Confused
".. not so much a revolution as a de-volution, a rolling back to the backend of music production, where the possibilities of the encoded information inside computer software is open and endless" - Mixmag
