Ulrich Schnauss
Ulrich Schnauss
“finely tooled machine rhythms ripple discreetly beneath the haze, and there are ominous undercurrents running through even the most blissed-out passages, as though to suggest that the illusion of weightlessness comes at a price.” – Spin

“[Ulrich] is getting even more seductive with his sound.” – Blackbook

At long last, Ulrich Schnauss is happy to release his latest record, A Long Way to Fall, on Domino Records. The album is the German-born electronic artist’s labor of love, an solo album six years in the making. In honor of the release of the record, Schanuss has made like-minded producer Tycho’s remix of “I Take Comfort In Your Ignorance” available for stream. Take a listen to the track, as well as Ulrich’s original here.

A Long Way to Fall is Schnauss’ fourth album, and finds the artist returning to the punchier rhythms and pronounced lead work of his landmark album, A Strangely Isolated Place. Comprised of ten new recordings, the album is Schnauss’ most varied release to date. The percolating mood piece, “Broken Homes” recalls a more melodic IDM while the frenetic, mesmerizing “The Weight Of Darkening Skies” reaches new heights in tempo never reached before on Ulrich’s previous releases.

The album will be accompanied by a pair of visual pieces from the acclaimed photography and visual art duo of Nat Urazmetova (Hidden Shine) and Anastasija Nikitina for the tracks “A Ritual In Time And Death” and “I Take Comfort In Your Ignorance.” You can watch the first video for “A Ritual In Time and Death here.
Mahogany
Mahogany
Mahogany is an electric music-based multidisciplinary media ensemble currently working in Philadelphia, New York, and other locations. A combination of vocals, cello, massed guitars, pianos, melodicas, sequencers, synthesizers, samplers, tape, percussion, and other instruments makes for Mahogany's sound.

Mahogany also uses film, video, animation, cinema, graphic design, photography, typography and other realization and rendering techniques for a cumulative effect known as the 'Hypercube' - a multidimensional expression of elegiac saudade, benign monolithic dynamism, and jubilant, sensuous organic order.
