Imminent Arrival

Our upcoming release from No Arrival is now available on pre-order from our bandcamp.



Purchase the "Subvert Yourself" EP and instantly receive the stunning track "Play" with its deep atmospherics and chopped vocal samples.

"Subvert Yourself" is out on the 22nd of February. More track reveals and EP preview coming soon.

Be sure to check out No Arrivals previous releases on Bricolage below.

His debut EP, "The Chance To Fail", back in October 2017 was a sonic whirlpool of broken acid, experimentation and diverse ambient textures.



There's also the fidgety industrial ambience of "Terra Ratio" from our 2018 Retcon compilation.



Finally, our first collaboration with the Scottish producer was in the form of "Vex". An electronic cyclone of punishing beats and low end.

Sceadu : Imaginary Reign (Audio/Visual)

We're proud to present an hypnotic and cyberpunk themed visual for the closing track from our latest release from Sceadu.

"Imaginary Reign" rounds out the EP in style with its celestial arrangements and progression.

Sceadu "Once Upon A Future" (bc040)



We enter into 2019 with a chaotic audio narrative from Sceadu.

"Once Upon A Future" gives us a glimpse into this artists twisted, dystopian, vision. A dark and imaginative take on the end of the world and what lies beyond.

Crumbling and disjointed apocalyptic ambient sound design followed by two off kilter and anarchic drum n bass tracks that spit out fractured rhythmic patterns and nebulous bass movements that rarely sit still. The EP is brought to a close with the epic "Imaginary Reign". A captivating piece of chiming electronica that slowly unravels into a celestial crescendo before folding back into itself. It's completely paradoxical to what has went before and exhibits the diverse musical capabilities of Sceadu.

This future is nearer than you think....



Stream and DL available below or at the Bricolage bandcamp page.

In The Loop : Episode 33



Our first In The Loop of 2019 is a bumper episode that shares sounds from no more than 10 Bricolage roster and alumni. Without further ado....

MINIMAL_DRONE*GRL

Another breath of fresh air from the Canadian producer as she unveils the airy textures of "Velvet Shadows".



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JAFFA KID

"Echelon" is full of tough techno beats crossed with electro percussion and topped off with a gorgeous ambient background.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DARK FIDELITY HI FI

Another gorgeous ambient and glitch infused story from the esteemed Manchester producer with a sound of all his own.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MINERVA

A peak inside the brain of Minerva. The Hungarian artist has once again got in touch with her more experimental side. Expect acid, dub, techno and all sorts of chaos.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FIGURATE

Delicate and downtempo, aquatic laced, IDM sounds.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BELIAL PELEGRIM

Icy cinematic tones and a constant dreamlike progressive nature as "Baked Alaska" evolves and grows.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BLUE NOTES

A locked in hip hop style groove with broody funk elements.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

YASDA

We'll just leave this here... "Sputnik" is Russian word that means "fellow traveler". The title reflects to the thankful feeling of having a partner next to you who shares similar values, phylosophy and attitude to life. Things that connect you together, and create a foundation of mutual responsibility, its essence, the deepest and holistic view about the quality of everyday life. A person that respects you and has the curiousity and passion to escort you on your way wherever it leads to.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SULEVIA

An undefinable musical gem from deepest Austria. Sulevia is a producer that just seems to get more exciting with every one of her releases.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUNCASTLE

A playful slice of experimental pop-techno soaked in 8bit melodies. Free download.
