Nostress Netlabel is proud to present “Distance of Reflections”, the latest work by Ilir Lluka available for free download, an EP running at around 20 minutes. It includes three tracks that weave their threads upon urban dynamics and introspectives, made out of precarious balances and unpredictable glimpses of light slowly rising behind mountain fogs and distant rivers to then be abandoned inside the chaos of the cityscape. This is a record made out of almost familiar urban sounds that the artist has lived and wanted to capture into a single body of work, made out of voices collected from his daily life, distorted and processed so as to destabilize the listener while accompanying him in catatonic voyages beyond the borders of mind and body. Indeed, there are elements that in certain moments detach from the subjective matrix to make space for an objective perspective with colours, blurry nuances and dialogues that take place in the meanders of the psyche of those who grasp the message and create their own personal story. The cover photography by albanian artist Lori Lako conceptualizes two parts, distorted and normal, of an image that presents quotidianities of every subject and the sensations lived in them. The distorted half rapresents the perfect background for the tracks in this innerl urban route. Ilir Lluka lives in Tirana and from almost six years works on abstract and unconventional music, having upon his shoulders several productions with Nostress Netlabel such as his album “Shell” released in limited edition CD available from the label’s site. The base concept of his music is about memory and how it evolves alongside personality creating surreal sensations that counteract the real ones. Ilir Lluka is not an artist that repeates himself musically however in every work he loves to leave behind a distinguished and unique imprint, sometimes by usage of classical instruments, sometimes by long drones. The core of his musical research is the destabilization of the listener with a dense presence of streams as body of such sonorous gems. He composes by graphic scores and programming where the manipulation of different sound processing modules takes place in real time. These highly complex scores are created by the artist himself and graphical programming and coded frameworks enable the artist to emerge with such unique sonorities. A unique artist in his genre and a record that will leave you jaw-dropped.

Nostress Netlabel proudly presents "Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1", the new album by Massimo Ruberti, from Livorno (Italy). An artist who likes to call himself "trafficker of sounds and images" now considered one of the label's flagship artists. The album will be released exclusively for the upcoming second edition of the Netlabel Day, a considerable important event organized by the Chilean netlabel M.I.S.T. which will take place July 14 and involving Netlabels from around the world. Will take place at the endless web areas and there will be a collective exchange of unreleased and original music, that will bring enrichment in the archives of all those who participate in this beautiful and important initiative. Massimo Ruberti will bring high the banner of Nostress Netlabel with the publication of the first part of an EP extremely complex and sophisticated, that catapults the listener into distant and forgotten times. A work that requires careful listening and that will see the closure of a circle as soon as possible, through the publication of the second part. "Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1" it's an album in warm and elegant sounds, scratching the heart and soul of the listener. A work that runs through wilderness, unexplored and never trodden by human. Through listening we find ourselves in a desert devoid of its characteristic and constant wind, driving on non-existent paths, you suddenly find yourself in an oasis where the perspective changes and even the sand seems to take on the color of the sky and thirst suddenly becomes the ' last of the primary needs. The Sax caressing soft carpets of Synth, nocturnal atmospheres through the time gap that separates the vintage from the traditional electronic sound. Four songs that lead the listener to dive into the wonderful atmosphere created by Ruberti, starting from the cover depicting a Vedic text 5000 years ago to the intoxicating beauty of sound that will, without a doubt, to a new relistening of the album.
