Lezet is back, and introduces us to his collaborators Protecious, an interesting psychedelic experimental band from the US. The result is a mysterious blend of contemporary classical melody patterns and squirking beats of whom the constructions show a charming fragility.

new release by Cyclorama : Meeting planets

(15.10.2007) Cyclorama releases his first solo album on SCHNURSTRAX and adds a record full of beauty, personality and psychedelia to our catalogue. At a time where the genre "triphop" fails to re-innovate itself, Cyclorama uses beats and the song writing approach of that mid-nineties bristol based movement, the whole meshed up with guitar noodlings and ambient noises to create a very own interpretation of laidback downtempo music.
