虚拟梦想广场 – 爱的吸收

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Once in a while, an installment of telepath’s Virtual Dream Plaza project (written in script as 仮想夢プラザ) will receive a label release. For example: あなたを待って1 was released on TKX Vault, and 破片2 was released on Dream Catalogue. 爱的吸收1 is the only VDP album to be released on Nirvana Port, and unlike most of the VDP albums, it is […]

ADOV – Exit

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Exit is only retroactively considered part of the ADOV project. Originally, it was titled 0 under A Deluge of Visions,1 from which neither music nor art has appeared since the album’s release in February 2016. Exit consists of a single twenty-five-minute drone/ambient piece mixed in with field recordings. It has several similarities to the 仮想夢プラザ project by telepath […]

Subaeris – Transcendent God

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ The penultimate album on Nirvana Port, Subaeris’s eleventh full-length release is cyberpunk breakbeat.1 The first four are short, uptempo songs that somewhat foreshadow ghost tech – which makes sense in chronological context, as Transcendent God was released only a few months before HKE unveiled the all-ghost tech Pyramids label. The final one – “Prelude to Transcendence” – is […]

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ bleak is the last of the Nirvana Port releases, capping off the label’s ten-month run with not a bang, but a whisper.1 In fifteen minutes, cold. ends the second Dream Catalogue imprint with a stark “click” that suggests turning the lights off before leaving – or, more fittingly in theme with the Port/Vault imagery of D.C. imprints, the […]

LOTW | 21 November – 27 November: Nirvana Port

This week’s album-of-the-week isn’t an album at all. It’s our first “label feature” on Sunbleach: Nirvana Port, a short-lived imprint from the Dream Catalogue label, owned and operated by HKE and telepath. Its nine releases touch drone music, breakbeat, noise, furniture music, and ambient DnB; and sometimes, all within the same album. Nirvana Port is something of a little sister […]

RKM Records releases “Plastic Glasses” by Paradox Whispers

Plastic Glasses is a single forty-two minute track by Paradox Whispers, a member of the RKM Records family. This album exercises the extreme end of the (dark) ambient vaporwave spectrum, being a steadily-evolving drone piece. While not as brutal as Sacred Frequencies or as understated as 夢が制限されています, Paradox Whisper is a pretty demanding release simply in how quiet it is […]
