The Philosophy Of Nature [2015]

Description:

Time has come for the release of yet another fine atmospheric trip hop / illbient album by Undogmatic. This is the end result of many months of passionate work and sleepless nights, an album where philosophy and science intersect at their very roots as the inspirational basis for each of the eleven instrumental tracks. The 9th track contains field recordings by Antares and the 10th track features Concrete Cee on the lyrics. 

As usual in Undogmatic's signature style, the compositions are filled with sultry, melancholic, beautifully harmonized textures accompanied by a hard percussion, delivering both an atmospheric depth and a raw syncopated attitude as the main building blocks. 
Lay back, kick your feet up and absorb the essence (or be absorbed by it).

 Je Suis Charlie [2015]

 Description:

Je Suis Charlie, because freedom of speech is under siege by religious fanaticism, blasphemy taboos and dogmas and we should continue to defend one of humanity's most important freedoms after this barbaric attack. 

Undogmatic releases this EP in memory of those killed in Paris on the 7th of January, 2015, who are among many others who have been killed unjustly throughout the ages simply for exercising their freedom of speech, for speaking their minds, with their pens, their mouthes or their music and other creative powers. 

Freedom of speech itself cannot be killed, not in this way, let us thus speak freer than ever and let no one terrorize us out of our most basic human rights.

Velvet Textures Vol. 3 [2014]

Description:

I'm back with the third installment of the "Velvet Textures" series, after more than a year since the second volume. This work delves, yet again, into soothing & atmospheric tracks with my usual signature: an eclectic touch (which might as well be described as a concoction of a wide range of styles such as trip hop, illbient, dub, ambient, downtempo, acid jazz, hip hop, chill-out, neoclassical, and world music, to name a few).
There's also some new experiments thrown in the mix with some previously unexplored flavors (for instance: "Bioluminescence" and "Atmosphere Of Seduction", but not limited to). I think this variety might enhance the richness of your listening experience. :)

When it comes to themes: like in the last two volumes, melancholy, dark undertones and chilling subtleties are a common trait in this album, often punctuated by prominent syncopated beats. Expect plenty of brass too with flügelhorn, trombone, sax and trumpets being present in many of these tracks.

Some of the drums are rough, gritty and hard-hitting and there's even some some tracks with darbuka percussion for some Middle Eastern exoticness.
But enough with the spoilers, just listen to it and find out for yourself! :)

I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did throughout its production. Some of the tracks are the fruits of some pretty intense moments of my life, making them very special and meaningful to me.

I would like dedicate it to everyone who's been supporting and sharing my project, my listeners, and to everyone who's special in my life, new friends, old friends, family (specially my grandmother who passed away on the 5th of August), the people I collaborate with and everybody who continues to inspire me to improve as an artist and as a human being, to those who have been motivating me to try my best to overcome my social anxiety (they know who they are, but specially Teresa), whose support has been thoroughly appreciated. Finally, I would like to dedicate this album to Elisabeth as well (my very first listener) and to my Russian friend Svetlana who's going through a rough period in her life: stay strong and get better soon! :)  


I hope you'll enjoy it.

InDUBstrial [2014]Undogmatism Cover

 Description:

"InDUBstrial" is very different from my Velvet Textures series, it's much darker and experimental, less melodic and more minimalist and synthetic at times (it's closer to the second half of my "Life And Death" album).

If you prefer my softer works I also have good news for you: Velvet Textures Vol. 3 is coming out soon, maybe in less than a month, just a few more final touches and... :)

But back to the topic at hand: The idea behind InDUBstrial is to fuse dub/trip hop with industrial and dark ambient influences (among others), to come up with an experimental concoction. I imagine myself inside an abandoned factory hearing these tracks reverberating through the dark walls and rusty machinery. Some of the tracks are wrapped in abstract and psychedelic soundscapes with little details hidden among the dark textures.

As always thanks for checking out my work, for supporting me and for sharing it with your friends (the main vehicle for the promotion of my music). Also I'd like to thank Automageddon and Kernfeld for their collaborations. :)


I hope you'll enjoy it.

Undogmatic - Life And Death [2012]

Life and Death

 

Description:

"Life And Death" is the debut album by Undogmatic. It's a fucked up album born out of contrasts: Lighter and softer tracks face-off against their darker and harsher counterparts. 
There's a bit of everything waiting to be revealed in the tracklist. 

Life and death are contrasting states, likewise this album is about creation and destruction, good and evil, love and hate, seductiveness and ugliness, all these feelings delivered through either melodic or dissonant, disharmonious and chaotic aspects of music... Everything's on the menu today, go ahead, devour and enjoy it as much as you'd like, before it's too late. :)
