MiMi, a record label.

I recently discovered this little but very unique net label called MiMi, a net label which released so far 179 (!!!) albums and eps.

 

Mimi covers many music genres: pop (electronic or acoustic), ambient, electronica, field recordings. Every release is special of his own and if you add the fact that everything (!!!) is downloadable for free you get a very special pack, with lots of goodies, to spend the next 100 hours of your listening-to-new-inspiring-stuff time.

I started from Mi176 a release from N-qia called Sweet Sequence EP, a glitchy/acoustic/electronic pop 4 tracks album from this avant-garde band from Tokyo: it’s unique and really inspiring, every detail is so impressively tidy and so solidly produced that is a joy especially  for my lately over stressed techno abused ears 🙂

Randomly you can playlist any of Mimi’s 179 releases, for example Spatial White Noise (Mi 106) which starts with a spoken words intro (some field recordings of a tv and noise in the background) to introduce a hyper relaxed acoustic song, very gentle until crazy noises start to raise along with chorus made of loooong vowels … it seems to be in a dream or in some dilated atmos like The Doors’ psychedelic trips. Very slurpy I must say.

Another aspect of uniqueness of Mimi is the geographic provenience, if you look the graphics and the elegance and sobriety  of the website anyone would undoubtedly say “far east….Japan!” but then, you hit the contact link, and this address pop up:

“MiMi Records
A/C Fernando Ferreira
Bairro António Sérgio, Bloco C1-2esq
3020-078 Coimbra – PORTUGAL”

….yes….Portugal?….yes!.

See, it’s funny but hey it’s Portugal nothing Japanese at all.

This made me reconsider some past roommate’s bad experience I had with Portugueses, definitely I want to meet more Portuguese ppl as Fernando! Cause he’s doing a great great superb job!

the real reason for this strange connection is explained here 🙂

Anyway let’s stick to the subject:

Mimi has it all: do you like Ambient? Then check She Sings Sea Songs (Mi115) by Linda Bjalla so comfy and interesting it become my daily working soundtrack since two weeks.

Or you prefer more electronic groovy tunes? Then I suggest you to listen to Hiroshi Hirose a.k.a archidelics “Hairline Drawing” (mi007): sweet and smart micro-sampling IDM electronic.

If you are in a mood for some “new wave/electro pop/slow ambient intros” tunes (eheheh…) check Lili Hirakawa’s Spectrum Ep (Mi095) a beauty if his own, or AlektronicBirds Ep (Mi135).

Final word for Oporto’s producer ocp, because his 1234 ep is experimental and techno and glitch and noisy (and minimal and contemporary as I like).

Mimi records is what I like from a net label: free to download (of course), experimental, good quality, hidden gems, perfectly run.

Mimi has so many treasures for you to discover that will bring you through a journey of inspiring and quality music for the next winter months.

Boywithoutmemory (the fancy guy), Kiddo (darling of all mothers-in-law), BHL (the personate dandy), Gabe DM (the Italian Stallion) and Birdy Earns (the last real waltz dancer) are adding more than half an hour of sounds to the great album MONO by Jamie Guerkin.

Traces Ep is out for Weissaklt/Blauwarm… freedownload!!!

I am very excited to announce my new release for Weissaklt/Blauwarm, superb netlabel from Germany.

The Ep is called Traces and it consists of four tracks. Two dub techno tunes, one electro tunes and a deep and banging techno track!

This is the releases synopsis:
“We left traces behind whenever we act or move or express thoughts and words, sometimes those traces are more intangibles and sometimes more evident. Sometimes when more people are in the same place (like the postal office which is the soundscape in âHad macaroonsâ) the traces are mixed and overlapped in an apparent chaos, more defined are the traces left behind a couple talking in a hotel room (like the protagonists of Ernst Lubitsch’s “Troubles in paradise” who are featured in “Bluffer’s ammunition”), when the baron’s bluff is being unmasked. Traces are also there when a leaf leaves the tree was hanging or a cat is meowing in the street at night. Traces EP is just an attempt of showing the multitude of sounds that are around us without we even notice them, is a declaration of existence of the forgotten sonic elements.”

Weisskalt/Blauwarm is world’s first myspace-netlabel. Quality music for quality listeners.

The label’s boss is also a fine producer (under the names of BHL, Waldfee,) you can listen and download his music from the Wk/Bw’s website.
All the release are free to download.

The tracks were mastered at ARKTIS Studio by Sebastian Fischbeck which is also a solid and great producer under the alias of Boywithoutmemory

I was very pleased when I got contacted to release with them and if you take a musical tour through their releases you’ll understand why, there are so many great artisit on their rooster and good music to listen to.
So people, this is a great opportunity for me and you to meet new and talented musicians!

that’s all for now.
stay fresh and cool!
