A Produce & Loren Nerell - Intangible

Purchase for $8.99 through June 24
($12.99 thereafter)


The main action going on at the Hypnos Online Store involves Intangible,
released earlier this week but we have other good stuff… the new one from Saul Stokes!

Saul Stokes – Sleek Nucleus
(Stokes category)
(Price: $12.99)
Saul Stokes is definitely one of the most popular artists associated with Hypnos (though he
has also released a lot of music for other labels as well). This is Saul’s
first self-released CD, in a distinctive folder-type package, but the music still has that
recognizable “Stokes sound.”

Saul says:
Stokes is pleased to announce the release of Sleek Nucleus. Eight effervescent songscapes
that simply redefine electronic music. Each song is a crafted fusion of contemporary rhythm
and melody sculpted from Stokes’ hand-made electronic instruments. A lasting and unforgettable
electronic album, Sleek Nucleus continues Stokes’ 17 year history of merging sonic innovation
with soulful song composition.

We don’t release new music on Hypnos unless it’s something we really feel proud of and think our listeners will
enjoy. Even measured against our usual standard, we think this release is special. It’s the first collaboration
between two of our favorite recording artists, A Produce and Loren Nerell.

Of special note here is that although this CD will be priced at our usual $12.99, we’re offering a very special
deal. Now through Friday, only through the
Online Store
, get Intangible for just $8.99.

Artist: A Produce & Loren Nerell
Title: Intangible
Label: Hypnos (digipak CD)

A Produce & Loren Nerell - Intangible

2011. The first collaboration between two artists well-known to
Hypnos listeners and fans of ambient & experimental music in

While Intangible has a meditative and tranquil drifting quality, it also
incorporates more melodic and rhythmic elements than most ambient music of
the present day. Listeners who like their ambience musical will enjoy this as much
as those who like their drones deep and mystical.

Though it’s the duo’s first collaboration together,
both of them have been releasing music for about a quarter century. These guys are
responsible for some of our “Desert Island Disc” listening material here at Hypnos HQ (A Smooth
and Lilin Dewa are both long-time favorites). Often
at Hypnos we try to introduce new, fresh talent to our listeners, but this is a
case of two music-makers who know all the tricks, and yet continue to create
work as vibrant and inspired as anything on the cutting edge.

A Produce has released ten albums, including two on Hypnos (Smile
on the Void
solo, and Altara in collaboration with Hypnos
founder M. Griffin). Loren Nerell has released solo work on Amplexus, Soleilmoon,
and Side Effects, and collaborated with ambient music giant Steve Roach on
Terraform in 2006.

Isolrubin BK – Crash Injury Trauma
(Lustmord category)
(Price: $9.99)
Crash Injury Trauma is a shocking and disturbing album, unflinching and relentless in its fascination with violent car accidents. Tires skid and horns blare, followed by the sickening sounds of crashing metal and shattering glass, screams, sirens and heart-pounding bass. It‚Äôs a cruel, sadistic and horrifying tour de force in the ambient and power electronics genre. B. Lustmord released Crash Injury Trauma in 1993, as a side project, under the pseudonym Isolrubin BK. Following Heresy and The Monstrous Soul, and preceding The Place Where The Black Stars Hang, the album was recorded during what is now considered a pivotal period in the British artist‚Äôs career. Out of print for nearly a decade, this new 2009 edition has been remastered from the ground up, and is presented in completely redesigned packaging…
