MacroNoise :: My Steps Lead Backwards EP (Kahvi)

A well-balanced sojourn through sublime organic-electronic realms. Four crisp, brisk, and punchy tracks from MarcroNoise (aka Prague-based Tomáš Šebesta) for the Kahvi Collective this time around. Back in August (2017) we absorbed the artists’ Caravan Planet EP which yielded “a meandering electrical calm worth diving into.” With My Steps Lead Backwards, MacroNoise let’s it all out. […]

V/A :: Tangents (Kahvi Collective)

Tangents distills the finest in downtempo, sun-soaked electronic music, digging further into the chiseled sonic crevasses that each musician offers. Music certainly has the right to foster additional children, as Tangents is a welcomed home for its inhabitants. Kahvi‘s long running mission is “to gather and provide free electronic grooves.” The online collective continues to cull […]

V/A :: Fields (Kahvi Collective)

Continuing to unwrap streams of mind-boggling musical detail across several electronic music genres, Fields is a sonic smorgasbord that doesn’t let up. It goes without question that 2016 yielded, at least for me, an abundance of prime, large-scale compilations—Crazy 10 Years A/V, Sectioned v6.0, Frequencies Of The Mind III, Silicate Recursions, and Touched 3—to name a few. One […]

4T Thieves :: Details EP (Mahorka)

Tranquil and mildly steering vintage synths, this third EP for Mahorka oozes instrumental percussive bits and melancholic vistas. It is very apparent that Nik at Kahvi Collective knows how to keep the proverbial wheels spinning. He’s run the long-standing net-label for over a decade, and continues to renew his own sound within the 4T Thieves […]

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

Faex Optim :: Start with the River (Kahvi)

Collecting tranquil interludes gone astray, broken childhood samples, psychedelic undertones and kaleidoscopic colors colliding in blissful accord. As much as I try to hold back any reference to Edinburgh’s Mike Sandison and Marcus Eoin‘s musical space as the genre-defining nostalgic downtempo duo, crafting a sound that they’ve firmly etched into the hearts of millions (I’d […]

4T Thieves :: Silent Sands (Rednetic)

Like sand granules slowly passing through ones fingers or snowflakes melting in the palm of your hands, 4T Thieves crafts a pleasant sojourn filled with subtle low-pressure swells. 4T Thieves is Nik, long-time Kahvi operator of all things in the expansive netlabel music sphere. Here he has opted to release Silent Sands with revitalized UK-based […]

Faex Optim :: Mercury EP (Kahvi Collective)

Minimal yet metaphysical, Mercury is indeed a magnum opus of the imagination and psyche at the full command of substance—designating the origin of all that exists (through a divine chaos) and the lucidity of bringing those sounds of the Mercury dream to encompass all things. Mercury is a fitting title for this past summer’s ethereal […]

Planet Boelex :: Exist (Soft Phase)

It’s unlikely to get the hipsters stroking their beards in contemplation but for any fan of good old fashioned tuneful and chilled electronica, Exist is a must. This Finnish artist has been producing since 2004, releasing a steady stream of excellent electronica on various netlabels that are usually free to download. With a sound often […]

Five questions for Kahvi Collective

“Kahvi specializes in a certain niche target, the IDM/ambient kind of area, so there never will be millions of listeners, but I think that the size of the audience is growing all the time and continuously I get good feedback on the label and music. The label stands apart from the quality of the releases […]

Xurba :: Music for a Clear Channel + Third Symbol (Kahvi Collective, Digital)

(01.17.08) Somewhere between Brian Eno and Ulrich Schnauss lies Xurba. Xurba is the alter-ego of one Will Brazier-Smith, hailing from the UK and delivering crisp euphoric electronic sounds. He has dropped a pair of releases through the Kahvi Collective netlabel: Music from the Clear Channel, and Third Symbol. Influenced heavily by Tangerine Dream, Arovane, and […]
