amek012 - Climaxim & Ivan Shopov & Mytrip – Controlled Perception

Believe it or not here's our seventh release for 2016. We can't believe it's happening.
It's a co-release with ABCD. They are handling the digital, tapes are on us.

Get it from abcd.ivanshopov.com.


Maxim Anokhin (Climaxim, Limewax), Ivan Shopov (COOH, Balkansky, Drum Kid) and Angel Simitchiev (Mytrip) recorded Controlled Perception in February 2014. The album documents a small bit of their first creative encounter. Controlled Perception sees three artists with completely different solo output and background overcoming their individual aesthetics and approaches to craft a sound of its own. The album was born between the studio and the live environment. It's a result of extraction and not of relentless edits. 
From the distant murky guitars of 'How does it feel to be in between' to the textural, yet tamed ambient chaos of the closing, self-titled piece, Controlled Perception is a morphing mass of memories, machines and contemplation. The album is finally out to commemorate a rather unexpected artistic symbiosis, but it is a promise for further exploration as well.
Recorded live in 2014 by Maxim Anokhin, Ivan Shopov and Angel Simitchiev

amek010 - Deffektegg - Nadir is out now!

Despair is good. Despair can be the nadir of one life and the starting point of an ascent into another, better one. 
― Dean Koontz


Exactly two years after embracing us in the weightlessness of its raw noise ambient Deffektegg is reaching for our throats again. His chokehold is stronger and more intoxicating than ever. If so far Deffektegg’s music felt as if you are observing a dead body becoming one with the black waters of the sea, Nadir is like a subconscious self-immolation. For 50 minutes you will be feeling nothing else but your insides scorching so your remains can feed the relieving cold soil of existence.

Deffektegg reached nadir between 2015 & 2016
All music and photography by Yavor Grancharov
Available on tape (ltd. 35) via Amek & digital via Mahorka.
Released: September 1, 2016

Press quotes: "Music that is on the edge of drone, but also reaching for the more experimental realms and that entire works quite well." ~ Vital Weekly "Мъгла, разкъсвана от електрически искри и настръхващи звуци със загадъчен произход. Почти час през бледите полета на въображението." ~ Lunatic.bg "Gorgeous. Beautiful modern minimal drone that holds onto your attention in a surprisingly thoughtful way..." ~ Dead Formats

ate - MCCV (2016) is OUT now!

amek009 is here! We're finally able to share with you ate's debut album MCCV - out now on cassette limited to 35 copies! 





'MCCV' is classical guitarist Petar Petkov's debut album as ate. Exploring instrumental drone ambient through loop layering of minimalist and symbolic musical figures, ate is building warm and introvert soundscapes. The four pieces in 'MCCV' are developing slowly and gently. 

Each note, chord or bowed tone is precisely picked and positioned in melodic or rhythmic patterns, soaked with melancholy. Through simplicity ate manages to build dronescapes as lively as contemporary chamber music.

released August 13, 2016 

 Composed, performed & recorded by Petar Petkov 
 Artwork by Georgia Ohio
