The next release in our main catalog brings us Wolf Asylum with a light airy IDM, and somewhat chillout release called Daze. If you like Archaic Horizon netlabel, then this will be right up your alley. Also brings memories of Melorman’s music as well.
Chrome Rainbow returns to the label with his second release Hourglass. A more complex and more organic sounding release, he melds layers of synths with pianos over the top to provide music that sounds like his style from his first release Beside Yourself though in a more complex tone. This is a great album to chill to on a Sunday afternoon or what have you. If you prefer your electronic music to be slower and more chill, this is perfect.
Louigi Verona brings us the soundtrack to his maze game 15 Orbs of Votsor. This time around, it’s a different sounding release than the releases that he’s done with us in the past. He fuses his dronescape sound and atmosphere into Ambient Techno and at times dubby Ambient Techno and smooth IDM. There are a couple of straight up Ambient tracks, but most of it is Dronescape atmosphere with flowing basslines and Ambient Techno grooves. While the sound is different, this is a high quality release from Louigi. Grab the game itself here.
After self-releasing the album Inertia, we are proud to bring you the b-sides and outtakes album Inertia Sessions. Sage Taylor brings more of the IDM side from Pigments of Your Imagination to the front with his follow up to that album. Inertia Sessions takes songs that didn’t make the main album and brings them in their own light on the album. Ranging from Leftfield to mellow IDM and beyond this album showcases that the leftovers from Inertia are just as good, even if they aren’t of the same style or feel as the tracks on Inertia. Tracks like Fuego and Spiral Wind showcase a great more minimal style of IDM with tracks such as Lambent and Terminus showcasing a more leftfield style of fast drums in an almost breakbeat style. This album showcases the talent that Sage Taylor has when making IDM. You can grab Inertia if you haven’t heard it over here: http://sagetaylor.bandcamp.com/
Kasstedy makes his debut on CFM with a great Chillout/Downtempo release. A very unknown artist, this release will get you wanting more from him. His use of atmosphere and beats is almost perfect. Throw in some soothing voice work as well and even a little bit of a MLK Jr. speech on the first track and you can see he’s got the chillout music down very well. If you are into any sort of Downtempo this album is for you. To sum up what you get on the album, its Soothing Voice work going over great Ambient Atmospheres and Trip-Hop drum lines.
A Chance of Weather is the first album that lilmanjs started work on back in late 2009. The album features 12 tracks of IDM and Ambient music, as it was designed to be half IDM and half Ambient to flow very nicely. You can see how far lilmanjs came in music making just by listening from start to finish – from his first track ever, Blue Skies Turning Grey, to later tracks like Interlude (Sky Guitar) and Peacefull Weekend. The album ends with the epic 15 minute track Lakeside Reflections In Spring (Winter into Spring Mix). The album should please both Ambient lovers and IDM lovers.
Chrome Rainbow’s debut album “Beside Yourself” makes its way to Cold Fiction Music. This album is made worth listening to through the use of rhodes, piano, synths, drums, and other various instruments. Lilmanjs and Sage Taylor worked in collaboration with Chrome Rainbow on two of the songs in this release.
lilmanjs returns with an all new EP, his first with beats. Retro Introspective is a brand new Jazzy IDM release from lilmanjs. Features Rhodes, Sax, Jazz bass sound and somewhat crazy drums. The EP was created over a year and was crafted to meld IDM and Jazz sounds and add in a lilmanjs touch.
The 4 songs that make up this EP come from a live set that Pembls played. We are very proud to have Pembls on board and releasing this fine EP. The songs are of a Minimal Techno, and IDM style and are very relaxing and songs you can get lost in. The 2 pictures used for the album art actually come from the festival that he played the liveset at.
This is our first release from Melomake, which is an EP called Pieces. It features ambient melodies that are accompanied by minimal beats. The combination of melodies and feeling of atmosphere portrayed in the release would make it perfect for a movie soundtrack or as background music in an atmospheric game. The tracks are 320 kbps MP3s, which provide a higher quality of sound.
We are proud to bring more ambient music to you. This is the first EP from Protofuse on the label and we couldn’t be happier to release it. It features a few songs with minimal beats, but overall it is really more on the ambient side. If you like your ambient to be minimal and to have sparse beats at times then this is the EP for you.
The debut album from Matt Wolfe is finally here. Featuring a lot of hand crafted beats and crazy layers of sound, this is one crazy good album. If you like any kind of electronic music, then this will be an album you will be sure to love for a long time to come.
A long time coming this release is the first release that features songs from artists on the label and a few who are being introduced as artists on the label. Featuring everything from Downtempo to Psy-Trance and Ambient this release should suit everyone. Iced Over World introduces Riatsu, and the solo debut of Metylonia (one half of Psymachine). Iced Over World really shows off the talented artists on Cold Fiction Music while showing how different the music styles are.
Foxy Fruit Salad, debut album from Moxil & Taxil combines fractured industrial rhythms, live bass playing and ethereal pads with a glitch-hop sensibility that’s firmly rooted in the experimental outings of artists like Odd Nosdam and Boards of Canada. Though influence of the album comes from a very specific sector in electronic music, it manages to pick up many other styles of music and blends them into its mix. It is the hope of the musician behind this project that the listener of this album will enjoy it and its bite-sized tracks, play after play after play after play…
Pigments of your Imagination, Sage Taylor’s 2009 album, began as an afterthought for 2007’s ‘Manufacture your Brothers.’ Where that album was decidedly warm and mystical (in the furthest-reaching senses of the words), POYI was to take a more relaxed, cooler (but not colder) route. The result was two years of experimenting with new techniques that ultimately ended up in a dubbier, more ambient sound, as opposed to the warm, almost hip-hop approach that permeated MYB. After the dust settled, the tracks were arranged, and what you see here is the final product of two years worth of work, rolled into an hour and sixteen minutes of chilled out ambient techno that’s pleased to finally see its release on a label, where others will hopefully enjoy it for a long time to come.
