2014-04-18 | Remix for Dr.Nojoke out on Klangscheiben
There’s something to be said about having your head in the clouds, as long as they’re the kind produced by Berlin based artist Dr.Nojoke. For his first release under “Klangscheiben”, the doctor weaves his signature plethora of handmade sounds into a four-track composition fittingly dubbed Clusters & Clouds. Among the array of textural beats live ghostly reverberating vocals and lo-fi ambiance, as in “Autistic Cloud” and “Homeless Cloud”, the latter distilled even further under labelmate Sven Laux’s touch. “Klorren” balances dense, undulating rhythms with a trace of mysticism. Call it cumulotechno. read more
2014-03-18 | The Third String out on Make Mistakes
Sven Laux comes to Make Mistakes with The Third String, a collection of end of the winter songs, a hopeful look forward to the months to come.
Soaring atmospherics, and delicate scatterings of percussion characterize this release, and mark songs such as Déta as unmistakably the work of Sven Laux. Lega is a piece of sublime minimalism, complex structures rising within a loose shell of dub, perfect for the early hours, and late afternoons. Stac, like the first warm day of the year, is enveloping and propelling, organic layers of sound and warm pads create an inviting environment to bask in. read more
2014-03-02 | Intermission out on Dewtone Recordings
When an artist steps outside boundaries we’re accustomed to, we’re provided with the opportunity for a deeper understanding of their creative pursuit. The result could either bring you closer to the individual, or take you down a path you’re not comfortable following. It’s a process that will weigh on any artist’s heart, but a necessary part of their inevitable evolution. Sven Laux has always had an eclectic source of inspiration. Found sound producers naturally have their ears tuned to the possibilities heard in virtually any source of audio. read more
2014-01-26 | Microscopy out on Klangscheiben
Whoever said “good things come in small packages” must have been talking about Sven Laux’s microcomposition. A leader in this new wave of music, Laux’s is a particular breed of minimal that you have to think about to truly understand. Listen at a distance, and it’s the kind of skittering beats that have earned Laux titles like “micro symphonist.” read more
