Zero Tep - Skybox EP - cover.png

Zero Tep's brand new Skybox EP is a culmination of years of work on the project. Comprised entirely of vocal tracks, VIP cuts, and pop experiments, the Skybox EP is like a distillation of Zero Tep music.

For those following Zero Tep, a lot of this music will be familiar already. Some have appeared on Soundcloud, in mixes, or at live shows, but here are the properly trimmed and mastered edits in one place!

Stream the lead single, "Something / About Us" featuring London vocalist/producer K the Infinite.

Kaelin Bougneit - Utopia! Utopia! Echo, blithe apocalypse!

Utopia! Utopia! cover.jpg

As Subviolet gears up for a busy 2018, I wanted to share a small omen of the things to come. Utopia! Utopia! Echo, blithe apocalypse! is a loop of minimalist music made in Ableton Live and turned loose alongside a Live project file to help you inspire your own compositions. The B-side comes from a late night duet with my old apartment heater...

The artwork is taken from a children's book my aunt Susannah illustrated for my brother and I as kids. I rediscovered the book recently and snapped that photo because I loved the haunting watercolor bleed.

You can download the EP here as well as the Ableton Live project file for the song.

In other news, catch a little video of Zero Tep's performance at the first Phuture Collective monthly! It was a great time, and I got to connect with a crowd of people I never had before. Energetic and carefree all around.

Kaelin Bougneit - "Three Voices and a Jigsaw" Out Now

Subviolet label head Kaelin Bougneit has released his first solo album, Three Voices and a Jigsaw, a psych-ambient record pieced together from private recordings from the past decade.

Presented in four distinct movements, some of the 17 individual pieces have been manipulated and resampled many times over a period of years to reach their current form.

The album drifts dynamically between pastoral ambient psychedelia, patchwork hynogogic hymns for synthesizer and guitar, and spatially-inspired improvisations recorded in quiet moments. Songs about Wisconsin roads like "Highway 18 to Dickeyville" and "Highway 55 to Langlade" conjure colorful images of midwest forests and farmland, while songs like "Drone for Predatory Butterflies" and "Color Waves" encourage an almost meditative sense of inner space.

Download Three Voices and a Jigsaw for FREE from the Subviolet Store!
