BOT001: Orang - Everyone EP
The debut release from one of Kuala Lumpur's brightest talents: 'Everyone' sees Orang twist pop conventions to his advantage, and as a unique way of spinning intense deliberations on self and identity into a patchwork of deceptively-charming melodies, patterns and grooves
BOT002: Adam Kasturi - Camo
Among Adam's most melodic and thematic work to date, the release comes to you as an introspective 12-minute voyage through tense urban landscapes; punctuated by relieving arpeggios, meticulous percussive details and inescapably laced with the enigmatic producer’s signature industrial undertones
BOT003: similarobjects - Etheric
Two-track release from similarobjects; introducing aquatic new depths and euphoric highs to the hard-working Manila-based producer's prolific resume.
A case study in compare and contrast; cascading harps and hypnotic signal tones paint 'Gersisa' with an ominous momentum, while jazzy keys peek out and ultimately flourish from far below surface-level on 'Blueprint to Atlantis'.
BOT004: wALLED GARDEN VOL. 01
The first in a series of free compilations showcasing a breadth of new music from across Southeast Asia.
Half an hour in length, the release features underground artists from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. A diverse range of styles and approaches reflect the fertile and experimental regional scenes flourishing ‘between the cracks’ of an increasingly complex online musical landscape.
BOT005: RAO - LET LOVE KILL EP
Six-track EP by experimental Malaysian drummer Reza Othman, otherwise known as Rao. Fully-formed but deliberately unpolished, the release presents itself as a meditation of found sounds, ambient samples and ultimately enthralling DIY sonic landscapes.
BOT006: WALLED GARDEN VOL. 02
Second edition in our compilation series focused on regional producers quietly flourishing between the cracks of an increasingly complex online musical landscape.
A shade under 30 minutes, the release features artists from Malaysia (PRIMADONA, Moslem Priest), Singapore (Intriguant, Night Dives), The Philippines (Sylfiden) and Indonesia (ＢＬＬＩＳＳ); covering a diverse musical spectrum traversing hazy house, tropical electronica, fringe club and classical piano through to esoteric ambient.
BOT007: WANHANZAN - LIMINAL BEING EP
Debut EP Liminal Being from Brooklyn-based Malaysian producer wanhanzan. Harnessing a period of personal uncertainty with focus and precision, the artist introduces themselves with both a deft touch for kinetic, pulsating electronic rhythms and a meticulous ear for detail over four driving cuts condensed into a tidy 16 minutes.
Whether drawing from Asiatic scales, warped white noise or intentionally-muddied samples of world newscasters reporting on the producer’s native Malaysia, ‘Liminal Being’ is an enthralling first listen from an artist to watch
