  • New reactions from FFM about Kvitnu and new Kotra album

    Were one obliged to conduct an (ultimately pointless) argument over the finest label in Eastern Europe, a prime contender would nonetheless emerge from the streets of Kiev: Kvitnu. Founded eleven years ago by Dmytro Fedorenko, Kvitnu was designed from the outset both “to amplify experimental noises emanating from Ukraine and to discover new sonic variations […]
  • Vital Weekly about Mingle “Ephemeral”

    Available also on LP and CDR this is a new work by Andrea Gastaldello, also known as Mingle, who had  a previous release on Kvitnu in 2015 (see Vital Weekly 993) and who works with Deison (see Vital Weekly 1079, but also on other occasion). Since 1995 he is active with the production of electronic music, first […]
  • Sodapop reviewed Mingle’s “Ephemeral”

    Per Andrea Gastaldello/Mingle il termine “iperattività” semplicemente non ha significato, la serie di frequenti uscite che hanno caratterizzato gli ultimi tempi altro non è che la normale cadenza che al momento l’ispirazione gli concede. Così, a poco dall’affascinante collaborazione con Deison dedicato al fiume Tagliamento, ecco Ephemerala rinnova il sodalizio con l’etichetta austro-ucraina Kvitnu che già aveva licenziato Static. Proprio da […]
  • First review for Exo_c “Laboyatta”

    EXO_C’s “Laboyatta” is minimalism with menace. By stripping things down to the absolute essentials every sound serves as another threat. Attention to detail means these few powerful elements gains the greatest of impact. Rhythm rests at the heart of it all, a pulsating beat that drives the entire album forward. Melody does not exist in […]
  • Neural about Ilpo Väisänen’s “Syntetisaattori Musiikkia Kuopiosta”

    Neural about “Syntetisaattori Musiikkia Kuopiosta” Ilpo Väisänen was mostly known as one of the two founders of Pan Sonic. He was not very productive as a solo artist: we mostly remember his work in bands such as Angel, Fistpost, IBM, Rude Mechanic and VVE (his partnership with Mika Vainio ended in 2009 after their third […]
  • Review for Transmutatsia and great birthday greetings from Chain D.L.K.

    Last Christmas Wien-based Ukrainian label Kvitnu literally gave its heart: on the occasion of its 10versary, Kvitnu’s guys decided to release this unique output, whose nice cover artwork (a distinguishing mark of the label under the wise visual supervision of Kateryna Zavoloka, the sound artist who signed this celebratory production) could vaguely resemble a psychedelic […]
  • A review for Stray Dogs from Chain D.L.K.

    “I’m not sure if the source for this output on Kvitnu by Belgian duo Stray Dogs (consisting of Frederick Meulyzer on percussions and electronics and Koenraad Ecker, who use electronics together with a set of guitars and a cello) is the same they grabbed in an icy deconsecrated church, which was the base for their […]
  • Stray Dogs reviewed by Luna Kafe

    “This album is a remarkable electronic recording. Top notch. The best electronic album I’ve heard for a while. And the days began to walk sees it’s performers to ‘explore the outer limits of the push and pull between music and the body: using their signature sonic palette of intricate rhythms, cello, guitars and electronics, they […]
  • New review for Plaster “Mainframe”

    Un album magnifico quello introdotto da ‘Unicore’. Immaginate un perverso beat alla ‘One Of These Days’ dei Pink Floyd spingere l’ascoltatore nei meandri di un suono oscuro e siderale. ‘Mainframe’ è il terzo full lenght dei Plaster, segue il micidiale ‘Platforms’ e ‘Zyprex 500’, mantiene il legame con la Kvitnu e vede Giuseppe Carlini farsi […]
  • Superb review for Kotra “Rozviy” by Luna Kafe

    We took on Kotra’s (a.k.a. Dmytro Fedorenko) Reset some seven years ago, and we have checked out some of the collaborative projects with Kotra involved. Yes, Kotra is the moniker for Ukrainian sound-artist and the founder of the Kvitnu label, Dmytro Fedorenko. Kotra is Fedorenko’s main sound-art project. Since the late 90s, Kotra’s released some […]
