Bricolage Podcast #59 - See Blue

We've managed to procure a very special guest for our July podcast session. We've coaxed Matthew Duffield (of Sedition DJs fame) out of an extended mix hiatus.

Matthew is head of the, Barcelona based, See Blue Audio imprint. An ambient leaning label that focuses on "shade rather than light". The label is still in its infancy but is slowly growing and evolving its roster.

This mix, as you can imagine, is rooted in the ambient genre. Over the course of 80 mins we are taken on a journey that showcases the broad depth of the genre. The beats are few and far between but when they do make an appearance they make an impact. There's glistening synths, peaceful guitar soundscapes, layers of field recordings, ethereal vocals, segments of haunting world/ethnic music and it's all topped off with sounds from over a century ago via the year 1919. The session is cut together like a vintage mixtape for added appeal. One for the headphones.

As always, you can listen below or at our mixcloud.

Black Lives Matter

We've been quiet this last week or so. It doesn't feel right to be promoting music in this current situation. The sound of rage, despair and hopelessness across the globe is almost deafening.

Today is another "bandcamp day" where the platform waive their fee. A brilliant gesture in support of independent labels and artists.

But now is not about listening to music. Now is about listening to the voices of those that so desperately want and need to be heard.

On that note, we've decided to mark today with this eight minutes and forty six seconds of silence.

We want to listen. We want to learn.

This silence will always be here. It will never be deleted. It's our way of saying that we stand in solidarity. All money from this 'release' will be donated to the link below. Digital download comes with a hidden unreleased 10 minute jam from the Fragile X "The Butterfly Effect" sessions.

The donation is split between more than 70 community bail funds, mutual aid funds and racial justice organisers.


No matter how big or small we accumulate the plan is to donate on the first Sunday of every month from here on in starting on Sunday 7th June.

*NOTE* We will be covering the future PayPal and bandcamp fees from any purchases from our own funds.

Fragile X and Esef "Static Control" (bc055)

Bricolage are proud to present a new split EP from the heart of Glasgow's underground as Fragile X and Esef offer up four bruising slabs of  bass driven techno and breakbeat. Both producers have dug deep into their respective sonic arsenals and retrieved the heavy artillery for this one. 

Gritty, loose rhythms and gurgling basslines buzz around the opening track from Fragile X before alien bleeps appear and carry the track to it's conclusion. Next up, Esef, brings that trademark percussive punch and weighty bass movements that set the scene for a melodic explosion.

For the remixes, Esef tackles "Damage Control" head on and starts off with a dark and ominous tone that incorporates the original bassline into something that little bit more sinister before flicking the switch and dragging us feet first into an uplifting techno anthem.  To round things off, Fragile X travels into the static with a hiss, before being joined by compact breakbeats,  chopped up hi hats, warped bass samples and furious acid lines.

"Static Control" has been in the pipeline since late summer 2019 and we've been patiently sitting on it waiting to unleash it into the world. We hope you can agree that it's been worth the wait.

You can purchase "Static Control" direct from the link below or at our bandcamp.

Minimal Drone GRL "Ancestral Origins" (bc054)

Bricolage is proud to present the debut album from Canadian sound sculptor, Joanne O'Keeffe aka Minimal Drone GRL.

"Ancestral Origins" is an ambient opus that is full to the brim with colourful and alluring melodies, emotive pads, effective rhythms and a vast array of field recordings recorded throughout the UK and Canada. These field recordings and found sounds blend in with the organic atmosphere to create a memorable and captivating journey.

This stunning ninety minute story is soaked in nostalgic tones and plays out like a fairy tale of sorts as Minimal Drone GRL casts her spell and weaves a golden web of immersive surround sound ambience. At once, both mystical and relatable. We'd highly recommend listening to "Ancetsral Origins" in one sitting to truly experience and appreciate the full story.

The theme of the album is rooted deep in the heart of British Columbia as past meets present and both look to the future together....

"The concept or theme for the album is based on what it was like to be brought up by immigrant parents and the challenges and hardships they faced arriving in a foreign country. Each individual track represents exploration, self discovery and learning about my roots/ancestry in Britain and growing up in British Columbia. The 'Spirit of Kolus' track pays homage to the indigenous people/First Nations of Canada and the beauty of their culture and heritage."

Bricolage Podcast #55 - Minerva (IWD 2020 Special)

"I am Ariadne. I am Minerva. I am proud to be female."

Minerva's International Women's Day mix from last year was so good that we invited her back again this year to do it again. 2019's mix was a heady mix of experimental electronica, ambient, IDM and electro from her female peers and influences. This year, she's flipped the switch and went all in on the dark and deep techno. An hour full of bruising beats and wavy acid from some of the best producers out there.

Friday, 21 February 2020

Urgula "Frequency Wars" (bc053)

For our second offering of 2020 we're delighted to be able to bring you the "Frequency Wars" EP from Urgula.

'Urgula' is a fresh alias from Glasgow producer John McLaren aka 'Kill Them With Noise'. KTWN is no nonsense, dance floor orientated techno. Things take a more focused and sound design approach with the Urgula alias. The sounds are still sharp and full of drive but come stripped back to their core and given that little bit more space to bounce off each other amid the frequency wars.

This new project puts emphasis on the the much lauded futuristic elements of techno. Spider web like percussion that continuously evolves against glitchy, almost industrial, backdrops with synth lines that stab at the surface and low bass movements that prop up the dystopian terrains. Mechanical music with a human side. 

The EP come backed up with two remixes of "Battle For The Magnetic Fields". A genre bending effort from fellow Glaswegian 'Doxil' and a more contemplative but different take on things from Budapest native, 'Yasda'.

"Urgula’s heavy focus on sound design is present here, with a rich percussive structure aptly married with disconcerting hypnotic melodies."

You can read a stellar write up of the "Frequency Wars" EP over at Monument.

Lying Cat "Second Life" (bc052)

The return of the Lying Cat brings both a continuation and evolution of the sounds that were showcased on the evasive felines debut EP back in 2018. That warm and grainy fuzzy feeling remains embedded in the atmosphere, as does the curious nostalgic charm that each arrangement seems to possess.
The track structures are still unorthodox but this time they come supplemented with more depth, tone and character. There is a huge array of textures throughout 'Second Life' that are complimented by fractured patterns, moments of melodic bliss and electronic chaos that are all topped off with an exceptional aura of mystery.
"Second Life" is available to stream and DL below or at bandcamp
