Amek nl_02: New tapes by Omori & V-Stók

February brought us two releases, two videos and more

As you can guess by the length of this issue of our newsletter, February has been wild. Without any doubt, however, the highlight of the month was the return Omori and V-Stók with awesome new music. Of course, both tapes are available as a special bundle.

Releases 

On the 15th, we released Omori’s Embryogenesis, a more ambient-oriented EP from our youngest artist, which vaguely reflects the difficulties of relocating and the anxieties that come from the introduction of new modes of thinking to one’s understanding of the world. The release of the album was celebrated with a packed concert at Fabrika Avtonomia.

Find Embryogenesis on tape & digital here.

February 20 marks the release of Aquatic Rituals by V-Stók, a record that explores his life-long fascination with various bodies of water. Triggered by the artist’s participation in Eco Acoustics artist residency organized by CampEr, the album contains both field recordings of water but also synthesized sounds that have “watery” texture and qualities.

Two tracks from our recent releases got awesome videos.
