Cisfinitum – Monochrome


Together with the labels Aquarellist and kultFRONT we're glad to present the CD edition of the album "Monochrome" by Cisfinitum, which was originally released last fall by NEN Records as a tape limited to just 45 copies. The album is dedicated to the memory of the music journalist and publisher Dmitry Vasilyev and is designed in the aesthetics close to the releases of Dmitry's label Monochrome Vision.

Russian underground scene continues to produce a lot of new music, this time we received the recent releases from such labels as Sidi Doma, BioSonar^Lo-End, ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ, Infinite Fog Productions, COD Music / COD Nozes / COD Noir, NEN Records and [electrotapes archive].

We should also mention the releases of Drone Records / Transgredient Records from Germany, Force Majeure / Nuit et Brouillard from France, and the truly international publishing project Vibora Collective. The lovers of noise and power electronics will probably be curious to check out the big list of new tape arrivals, from budget items to ultra-limited editions and collector boxsets.
