Description: Adrena Adrena is a collaboration between visual artist Daisy Dickinson and Japanese drummer E-Da Kazuhisa. Featuring a striking blend of electronica and progressive percussion welded into resonant shimmers, Adrena Adrena's first release for Champion Version is titled 'Cybals/Toy'. Over two sides we are immersed in the echoing glisten of Kazuhisa's ceremonial practice, revealing a wonderful relationship between space, minimalism and texture. The A side establishes a determined trajectory, first demonstrating its vast parameters with bright harmonics that move supremely into a mix of pulsating and rolling percussion. The second side is focussed on the development of soft metallic pipe samples that are underpinned by slow and brooding drum loops creating a swirl of otherworldly atmospherics. In addition to the 7", 'Cybals/Toy' comes with an accompanying book featuring striking photographs by Dickinson. The 28 page book is landscape orientation with final 21cm x 14.8cm dimensions printed onto 100% recycled, 115gsm white paper. Music and imagery to submerge.
Even if he says otherwise, Ian Hawgood is super prolific and incredibly talented in not only his own releases, but in collaborations and with the heart & soul put into the labels he's run over the years.
Saying all that, this is a more recent favorite release of Ian's: peaceful, deceivingly simple (yet not!) piano works that is personal, elegant and graceful in its warmth and presentation. Plus it's for a wonderful cause. Get it!! Joe Borreson
"Dissolve" shows a lot of unique and emotional layers and textures. To people who haven't heard this so far, you need to hear this because this is what ambient deserves to be: slow, drifting, and able to evoke emotions which they do perfectly. 6 amazing songs to get lost inside. Visual Complexity
