MF – Algorhythm [Soundsphere]
After the recent dispatch of Volume 9 from the Various Artists series, local netlabel Soundsphere presents its thirtieth release in the form of Algorhythm EP signed by Brazilian artist Marcelo Frota aka MF.
Founded in 2012 in Bucharest, Romania by Atouck, the Soundsphere project is involved in a variety of artistic movements, bringing forward amazing cross-genre music signed by artists from all over the world. Their catalogue is diverse, ranging from downtempo-oriented music and experimental to more uplifting sounds. Their recent musical endeavours delivered a steaming instrumental mixtape and collaborations with artists like Electronic Emotions, mir.ON, Mars And Daemons, Tracing Arcs, Fierbinteanu, Psychoz, Arte Sacra Atelier, deeB and many many others.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Marcelo Frota was influenced by electronic music since he was young. Around the year 2000, he undergoes some transformations, experimenting with minimalistic and abstract themes and rhythms. He releases some of his works with labels like BQ Recordings, Restore Music, Tenor Recordings, Black Lemon, DTL Records, Opium Muzik and Erijo, to name a few. In 2014 he founds B-Side, an underground label based in his hometown and invites various artists to perform vibrant live and DJ sets. Last year he released Black Drink EP on Conceptual Records featuring three steaming deep tech cuts.
Today his challenge is to create something totally different, something that suggests a high vibrational pattern. The experimental sounds of the EP incorporate technoid percussion, IDM patterns and glitching, drone backgrounds and ambient themes.
The release is available as a free download via Soundsphere netlabel.
