Amek nl_20: Accession
New Evitceles full-length, new shows, videos, and a gig gallery
For us, April ended with the release of one of the most important records in our humble catalog, namely Evitceles’ first solo vinyl appearance “Accession”. We managed to present the record at a very special event in Sofia, where we also had the chance to see US artist Hiro Kone play her first gig in Bulgaria. Here’s what else we’ve been up to. Thanks for sticking around!
Evitceles - Accession
After his 2021 melancholic drifter Naive Slumber, Evitceles returns to Amek for his new full-length Accession. His first solo vinyl appearance is a gripping and emotional listen from start to finish. Its narrative feels touching and distant at the same time, its overall brooding tone is often disrupted by lighter ambient passages or melancholic synth work. Evitceles is constantly on the lookout for new always raw soundscapes, gritty and loud beats, and his intuitive approach to sampling, field recording, and vocal layering gives his music just the right amount of imperfections and organic elements to keep it personal and human. Accession consists of everything one would love about Evitceles' self-described underwater sound but also hints at multiple new directions and aesthetics the project might be headed to. Without a doubt, this record will remain a significant piece of the ever-growing Evitceles body of work.
