For the sixteenth Reduct, I have selected two tracks which maintain the tempo acceleration of the fifteenth Reduct. “Levis” and “Levo” have an airy feel to them due to their melodic structures, but are grounded by solid bass lines.
“Knoal” is dedicated to Tommy van ’t Knoal, also known as “Dennis”. The black tabby Persian cat, who died last year at the age of 17, had lived with me for over ten years and was my companion ever since he came into my life. He occasionally appeared in videos and interviews and seemed to enjoy ambient music the most. The title track is the last track I recorded in his presence at Infraklang studio.
“Pictures From Life” is a various artists compilation, curated and released by spclnch, including tracks from Upwellings, Schulz Audio, Basicnoise, Heavenchord, and myself.
“Life is nothing but illustrated collection of stories that naturally updates itself. Often it happens quietly and only some time after it can be found that compilation has become thicker and brighter. “
Out now on ODrex Music, “Auncyen EP”. Carefully cut by Patrick Peetz on 10″ transparent lathe vinyl in a very limited run of 20 copies.
“With ODcut 017 we bring you a fresh release by Ohrwert titled Auncyen ep. as 10inch transparent lathe cut vinyl. Crafted beautifully are 2 trax to enjoy on the dancefloor or simply for your listening pleasure. Float in the world of Ohrwert!”
“Arjen Schat | LP2” is out now on Trésor D’argent and available on vinyl + digital + stream.
“For the second installment of Trésor D’argent, simply called “LP2”, Arjen Schat returns to the original format for Berlin-school. Two 20-minute electronic explorations, guided by a myriad of increasingly complex sequential patterns.“
“LP2” is pressed on black 140g vinyl, with full-colour sleeve and labels, and white poly-lined inner sleeve. Limited to 100 copies worldwide.
Out now on spclnch, “Soliton EP” with remixes by Schulz Audio and Heavenchord.
“Every creation has its creator, however, we concentrate on different colors of events once we encounter with art.
But does the artist really match with the messages he reflects in his work? What if not?
One could be deeply disappointed due to ones high expectations. Art can be referred to some ideals, while people are never perfect.“
Tempo is the theme for the fifteenth Reduct, as the doublet track titles suggest. Though the tempo is not much higher than my usual work, it is enough to change the music to an upbeat vibe whilst still being dub at its core.

Another set of ‘plugged’ tracks, this time a selection of the ones I recorded in 2018.
Spanning the entire month of June, I have made at least one recording per day. I have set this goal to increase my productivity as I was feeling I was not recording as much as I would like to. This album is curated from 95 recordings, some of them different takes on the same concept or different versions of the same recording, resulting in 14 tracks that clock in at 54 minutes total.
On average, the track lengths are shorter than most of my work in recent years, which make the album feel more like a story unfolding, expressively narrated in my own musical language.
