Keith is back and with a great honor we are releasing his EP "Afternoons at The Savoy"! Album is based on a story (goes with the EP download) that is simply awesome. This goes beyond usual Deadlights fare, but the diversity of the sounds is astounding. There is nothing to impede them from impacting every sense you own. One of the best releases this year, that's for sure!
Atmosphery is a contemporary music collective composed by young musicians coming from different backgrounds. The musical universe proposed by Atmosphery is broadband, going from electronic and contemporary jazz to acousmatic, experimental and improvised music, always inspired by wide spaces.

Morn is one of Domagoj Zunic's projects, he also plays bass in crust grind band Seppuku, sludge experimental bend Hesperian Death Horse, and was a part of many projects in Croatian underground scene ( Portraite , Tomorrow we hunt, Nietzsche killed him). Morn can be described with genres like dark ambient, drone, experimental , noise.. And this EP gives you two tracks both centered around death as a main theme. Cover is also really nice illustrating these two tracks. Prepare yourselves for 28 minutes of dark drones and experimental noises. Lovely.
Small Interventions is post-rock electro-acoustic ambient project by Stephen Antonoplis. This self titled EP released through SSR is interesting mix of electronic and acoustic instruments. As you can see all of the songs are Untitled but have alternate names. Nice concept by Small Interventions for naming songs. From the first song till last you can hear this "movie soundtrack" feel. Specially if you are travelling and listening this EP. It feels like dreamy, slow motion scenes moving through fields, by the sea, or distant city skyline.,. It is a shame there are only four tracks.
We think it is the right time to give you this amazing EP by Newgrange and Blakkr Nio. This is a collaboration EP and it will surely be interesting for you to listen to. The Doppler Effect is a four track sound art EP, that discusses the notion that abandoned urban space can be used to make music.
Many of the noises and sounds were recorded in industrial spaces.
Some of the material used for percussion were sheet metal and oil drums. It makes reference to the Situationist Movement in France. Check it out now!
We are presenting you our new friend and artist - R'lyeh! Michelle Eris is leading Old One behind this amazing project coming from Santa Cruz.
R'lyeh began in 2011 to synthesize the sounds and sonic chaos described in the works of the Cosmic Horror author H.P. Lovecraft and others - creating compositions from variety of perspectives in a spectrum from ambient to harsh, minimal to chaotic. First in a row of R'lyeh's releases will be "...only poetry or madness could do justice to the noises..."! This is a must not only for CthulhuMythos fanatics but all fans of great ambient noise horror. Pure fucking INFERNO!
Stars Falling From Your Eyes is a project by Cesar Barron from Mexico. "23" is his first EP and we are glad that it is going to be released for our label. His main goal is to capture the sounds that will express fellings and moments in life that cannot be defined best by words, for example fear and nostalgia.

You can here several genres and influences on this EP, from ambient, electronic, space, noise.
From this moment you can download "23" and give support to our new friend!
We at SSR are proud to present you this excellent release. Norman Sane created an unique piece of music art which combines experimental, ambient drone, industrial music. This album is an conceptual album, and it can easily be a soundtrack to a sci-fi post apocalyptic movie. For centuries, humanity has tainted the planet which it was given. This album is the soundtrack to the deconstruction of the human race and the beginning of a new dawn as the machines populate the earth. Your upgrade will commence shortly. Check it out!
ŠKARA is an instrumental one man band created in 2012. Behind it is Tihomir Škara from Serbia. Škara recorded one album (Inertia / Inertia), and several short demos. The genre is on Hysteresis is vague, because the sounds vary across a wide musical circles, as confirmed by a larger number of critics who have listened to and rated the music or album. Hysteresis is a compilation of the most interesting selection of 10 tunes with seven previous editions. During the selection process, All the songs were recorded in lo-fi technique, which is largely the hallmark of the entire project.
The main underlying theme of "Approximation of Nature" is how the human race has made several technological, industrial, and economic advancements; while making a considerable negative impact on Earth's various natural systems. The human race has become dependent on these technological advances so much, that generally accepted comprimises have been made regarding the conservation of nature. Therefore, creating an acceptable level of corruption. At the current rate, the human race will need to become dependent on an "Approximation of Nature".
Winjer3 emerged from the Chicago area of the United States in 2013 with his cosmic blend of experimental electronic, drone, ambient, minimalist beat, and rhythmic noise sounds. He uses a blend of small analog instruments, virtual approximations of analog instruments, and a receiver of shortwaves to create his unique sound. Recordings are generally completed "on the fly" and in one take; in order to maximize the improvisation of the recordings.
Winjer3 describes his main influences to be nature, the universe as whole, and the phenomena exhibited in both. There is a special focus on the more disastrous aspects of each influence, as can be heard in the details that exist within the sounds of Winjer3.
Yes, today we release an album from Serbian project WeAreAllSlaves. WeAreAllSlaves is an experimental / noise / dark ambient project from Belgrade, Serbia. WeAreAllSlaves is a project of 17 year old Filip Stojiljkovic when he was playing around audacity and found out he can add effects to every voice he records.

Nenad wrote short story and Kostja drew it. Since both of them are active as noise musicians (Kostja a.k.a. Smrznik, and Nenad as Third I), they decided to experiment a little bit, trying to add new dimension to this comic, by making some kind of soundtrack to intensify the impression. And the result of collaboration is this audio/comic release. Package comes with covers, tracks and comic in high resolution.

First live presentation of our label will happen on this saturday, in Ruma, Serbia! It will be a first in a row of events that we are planing to create.

The spice on the whole evening is going to be pure darkness on the stage with DREDDUP, DICHOTOMY ENGINE and SPLEEN.
Eensdenkend is revelling in minimalist ideas of repetition and slow development. Deep haunting ambient pieces are mostly leaving behind traditional musical structures making them with more simpler, sparser elements including ghostly phrasings and deep drones.
It's melodic without being obvious, droning yet with plenty of structure and minimal without being tuneless. "Aeon" is a perfect late night ambience, sounds from a place somewhere between consciousness and sleep. We suggest it a lot!
Eensdenkend is a hungarian one-man project with Adam Kalamar as its main force! It was originally conceived in 2009 under the name TheGreyField Project, creating ambient, post rock and noisy stuff. Name was changed after five releases. He comes to us with a album called "Aeon" which will be released tomorrow. It will surely give a great pleasure to all of you who are looking for a calm, cinematic and dreamysoundscapes, droneambient and minimalism in its pure form. https://soundcloud.com/eensdenkend https://www.facebook.com/eensdenkend

Privilege Checkers is an ambient electronic post rock project from Salt Lake City Utah, set loose upon the world by PETA after breaking into the HasBio labs where they were created. Not quite human, not quite horse, this ragtag band of musical miscreants wreak havoc upon the world, defecating where they will and demanding spaghetti from any human that passes. Check out this great EP called Fluffy.
This is the newest album on our label. It is self titled Newgrange LP. It was recorded at a time when Michael Molloy , man behind Newgrange was alone for months, he believed that it was the last thing he was going to do. Michael was constantly questioning the value of humanity and where it was heading. There was no real intention to make an album that fitted a category, but he wanted to make something that reflected his hopes, regrets and the way that he felt. Just because of this exceptional circumstances and feeling Michael was in this album carries much more than usual experimental dark ambient music...
Newgrange is an Irish experimental project and an exploration of dark music founded by Michael Molloy. He tries to focus on the process of making the music and soundscapes instead of having a solid idea about what the songs should sound like. His inspiration comes from most forms of black metal and some of their respective ideologies relating to paganism and darkness which he has applied to the songs, although, there are strong elements of industrial music also. The chosen name 'Newgrange' because it is an Irish historical place, a burial ground for the dead and a structure that fills with light.
As we announced yesterday, new band on our label is Hellion so as usual after such announcement comes a release. So today we release EP from band Hellion. This EP consists of five songs and each one tells its own story. But every song has that beautiful atmospheric vibe with that industrial and electronic feeling. Also Hellion retains that dark ambient sound which we love. But also don't be surprised if you get slammed by hard hitting beats and even harder guitars at some points. You won't be bored with this EP for sure. So don't hesitate and check this EP out because this one is worth checking.
Please welcome a new band on SSR - Hellion! Band from Pennsylvania was started by Chris Tremoglie as a small personal project to incorporate ideas for various experimental music, but quickly grew as Ben Palmer and Dan Ledger joined the musical group. Chris Tremoglie plays piano, guitar, and does a lot of the production for Hellion (in collaboration with Sound Design Music Studio), Ben Palmer plays guitar, piano, and is an excellent songwriter, and Dan Ledger is an extremely talented and passionate guitar player. The main focus
is for simple beautiful atmospheric industrial tones that harken back to such artists as Tool, and Nine Inch Nails. Hellion is defined as industrial, atmospheric, electronic music with a dark undertone.
While waiting for our next release we would like to present the amazing art and world of Matthew Ragsdale, man behind Always Wrong Film. It is mainly the personal production company of Matthew, but though is started by one individual it is collaborative effort of independent actors, directors, musicians and other artists. True underground art with DIY work ethic! All producing, writing, shooting projects is done independently. He participated with movie called "Mass" in the first chapter of Chaosphere Vol. 2. More interesting collaborations with AWF are coming, until then check out http://www.alwayswrongfilm.com/
We are proud to present you our newest release by excellent Love Letter project. Album Gentle Memories is two songs album and about forty minutes long and that composition in itself begs a comparison to Godspeed You! Black Emperor - but where GYBE! has a full-scale band, a brass section, and god knows what else, Love Letter’s Andrew only pulls out an electric guitar and a whole bunch of effects. Yet, here, he singlehandedly lights up a room. Basically, Gentle Memories knows exactly where it’s going, and where it’s going is back and forth over a line so many times that you can’t really see it anymore. Take care with this album and listen to it on misty evenings when the going gets tough.
Time has come to present you our new artist! Love Letter is a breath, taken in, and out. A series of ink and spilledthoughts that have collected in the shoes of all those orphaned by noise. There are no islands in the Suburbs, only dead end bending cul de sacs and hundreds of empty pools. No one is here now. They never were. They never will be. There is only you. There is only me. And you are where you are and I am here doing what I do, but that, my dear, is a lot. Love Letter is post rock, lo-fi, drone made with strings, turned pages, ruffled cables, do wop callings, micro-cassette failings, turned upside down typing, wet feet & gentle dreams.
Check it out here : thebandloveletter.bandcamp.com www.soundcloud.com/thebandloveletter
Strange Hybrid is our newest release on Splitting Sounds Rec by i am a freak. Well this album is just a strange journey through soundscapes, different rhythms and feelings. It reminds me of early industrial records, with such high level of creativity and experimentalism which is rarely found in this world of pseudo ambient, electronic and experimental artists, musicians and composers. As said in last post when we introduced i am a freak to you. Because of this we are really proud to release such album on our label. Please give this album a listen and if you like electronic ambient music with a lot of experimental and creative sound we are sure you will also like Strange Hybrid. For sure.
This tapestry of somber, morbid, happy, cadaverous, sensual, intellectual, fluttering, mystic, bizarre, haunting & hurting musick and sounds enriches the space you're in; it is musick to be enjoyed, without song to distract you from the musick. It stands out among the droves of post-post modern pseudo ambient, electronic and experimental artists, musicians and composers, simply because of its skills, humor, and eclectic composing. This is a sound-fest! From 1940's Pygmys to Apollo 11 astronauts, contemporary Japanese suicides and American homicides, Edgar Allen Poe and Marcel Duchamp, Pepsi & Sinterklaas-Santa Claus, i am a freak celebrates the mundane and the outrageous alike as only a freak can. Check out i am a freak website: https://www.facebook.com/iamafreak616
Here is another gift from the dark side of art. Second chapter of the compilation, murder No 2 is OUT! This one contains 22 tracks that will shroud you to darkness. We are really proud of gathering so much amazingartists and their works. We got here a broad range of dark musick. From the beginning you will become totally submerged into the musick, resonating and vibrating all your atoms. All tracks, sounds are perfectly effecting one another.
This is total immersion, almost suffocating, and from start to finish this album will suck the air right out of your lungs!
Murder No 1, first chapter of compilation entitled "Sleepwalk To Murder" is OUT! Album comprises 17 great tracks (with SPECIAL bonus, more info on that will be posted) all deviating from the usual and ordinary. Beside the various musical genres and styles this collection is very well balanced, done with almost acute attention to details. Dark and twisted ambience, deep evocative and dreamlike soundscapes, long and beatless pieces, hostile and oppressiveelectronica, haunting and harsh spoken word, instrumentals with trembling undulations.
We are sure that this will be a perfect setting for you to indulge in this undeniable stunning album.
We are going to release the first part of the compilation today! "Chaosphere Vol. 2 - Sleepwalk To Murder" contains 17 tracks and artists from all around the globe. It also contains awesome bonus item. This is definitely the proof that underground in all it's forms is ALIVE. All these artists aren't in this because of fame and money, they are not making musick for the dance floors. They are part of our rebellion against all the shitty trends and rising idiotism.
Huge thanks to all of you!
Cyborgs On Crack is an experimental solo project started somewhere in 2010. The sound of COC went through numerous changes ranging from mininmal, techno, ebm, industrial and even industrial rock. So this album called Tapeworm is a mix of all that and this mix sounds really awesome. Also, this release comes with video album. Every song has its own video compiled into one full length video album so you can enjoy this album both visually and musically. Watch this video album here - http://bit.ly/1ortwuf
So download Tapeworm from our bandcamp page, we love it!

Today we are releasing this great piece of art. "Saturnitical Mercurism" is one of the best post-rock albums i have heard lately. Amazing cosmic atmosphere, driven by the melancholic I.S.S. guitars (which sound reminded me a lot of the legends Godspeed You! Black Emperor) will take you on a space journey. Fantastic DIY production is giving a great vibe and energy to these songs making a sensation like flowing through the cosmos very real. This is a must, not only for the fans of the genres, but also the people who sense the sincere music coming from the inside and appreciate all the effort made.
Main man and permanent member of this studio project is I.S.S. (guitar player and author) coming from Hungary. To make releases complete he invites other musicians to help him with studio works. His work can be best described as instrumental space post-rock. The first stuff that he released was the demo called "Andromeda" from 2013. He is planning to do a lot of collaboration works in future and we can expect the first release of that kind in the fall of 2014.
This is an amazing and unique work of art and we are proud to announce the publishing of "Saturnitical Mercurism" for SSR.
Now is the right time to publish this extraordinary collaboration album between Dave Migman and Spleen Erebus. These two artists already worked together and made some great ambient music. We are thrilled to release this new awesome dark ambient album called "Organ Seer" on our SSR label. Spleen Erebus is main man behind the music, all those haunting sound scapes and ambient melodies, effects are his work of art. Dave Migman fills the music with dark lyrics, his spoken word perfectly fits the atmosphere of the songs on "Organ Seer". Every song is illustrated by Dave Migman's art which you can see with lyrics in the PDF booklet included in this album download. This one is worth listening, check it out!
This is new album on SSR by < UNUNE > and is called "+S.K.U.M+ The Return Through Shadows To Darkness & Bone". Man behind this awesome project is Stephen Rook. < UNUNE > flows between dark media drone, post industrial and experimental music. Album contains 2 longer tracks plus bonus track. The tracks have been mixed, edited & effected into the two sections Book One and Book Two. The 'Bonus track' was chosen specifically,as it had been a performance in 2013,that the club owner had actually called the police to stop,as the owner had become 'wary' of my literal stance .. almost arrested,but as there is nothing 'harmful' within the lyrics,it was merely down to the apathetic stupidity of a club owner, not being able to understand, a very esoteric & eclectic lyrical style.
< UNUNE > Is Stephen Rook,active within musick since the late 1970's. The < UNUNE > project came to be,early 2011,as a standpoint,that the Industrial music 'scene' & all it's sub genres,had become warped,ill befitting & in most cases - pointless. The word 'unune' - whilst having various levels of meaning,was initial chosen,as the 'English dictionary' states it as a little known derivative of the word 'un tune' , although in this case,referring to 'being incapable of causing harmonious effect'. This in itself is a term I would consider ridiculous,as there is harmony & balance in all things,if one is prepared to look deep.
This is our new release - Amanecer EP by Poble! As you read earlier Poble is a project from Germany and this one relies on shoegaze scene from earlier times. I must say that there are moments where you can easliy think it was made in 90s. But the whole picture is much different because beside multi layered guitars it has much nice electronic stuff. All the vocals make this release interesting because they are sang in Spanish. Really original and i have never listened German project with Spanish singing :) and this is what makes Poble different. I love it!
Poble is a home-producer from Cologne, Germany. While the range of influences is wide (and there´s almost no boundaries), in the resulting album it´s hard to deny the passion for the '90s shoegazing scene. The tracks mostly show some fuzzy, noisy, sometimes amorphous guitar layers, blended with airy, polyphonic vocals. Some tracks, on the other hand, make use of irregular electronic beat patterns. Female vocals are performed in spanish language.
This is second release on SSR for Benjamin Construct! We loved the previous album it was so easy to put this one out too! Exit to Air is an awesome ambient record. Joey Guarascio, main man behind this project makes a great mix with natural sounds and music he makes with ambient soundscapes and droning sounds. The quality in the sound of the records is amazing. It is obvious how many hours and love for music was put into Exit to Air. Most of Benjamin Construct work reminds me of Eno and similar stuff but anyway, support this awesome artist and his amazing work. Check this release out!
Splitting Sounds Records is small independent record net-label releasing underground electronic, experimental, ambient, drone, shoegaze, noise and other unusual music to the public. Our goal is to promote interesting underground projects/artists.
