Opening: September 2008
New Electronic History begins….In Our Music You won’t hear any acquainted samples and sounds, which are being the most popular nowadays. We change clear and mastered tunes as 303 and 909 to new generation of sounds: dirty rhythms, deaf & noisy bass, distant wistful strings…! These tracks have self life and fate, they breathe & feel as human beings and change simple conception of modern music. That’s why music interests of indeks go beyond and further than modern dance music.
The main idea and aim of this label is to use ‘waste production’ of modern sounds. Otherwise we use and play sounds which are being identified as errors, defects in modern music. It’s our Foundation. Such tunes are resurrected and re-played in our sound system, where simple human laws don’t have any permission to live. Trying to identify music which are released on indeks, Antoine Caesar gets in dilemma: “Most labels are quite similar nowadays, for example: Minus, Cocoon or Malatoid. They release music and sounds for deejays. As a rule dj’s perception is quite narrow. When I started playing vinyl, we used to play house, funk and soul music. But those days are over. My team and I don’t follow modern trends, we try create own sound and brand. Our philosophy is simple: We release music we like”.
Indeks represent it’s ideas and music with the help of Antoine Caesar and his Family: * Timur Valiev (Ukraine) * Vadim Lankov (Russia) * Rudolph Palladino (France) * Idteque (Russia) * Perc Fuze (Russia) * Beatrix Trixy (United Kingdom) * Phateq (Ukraine) * e-teb (Canada)
Rudolph Palladino - Damaged / RELEASE : 11 MARCH 09 Tracklist: 1. Damaged 2. Brain division 3. Diagnostic
This release is totally minimalistic. Short dry sounds, repetitive drum loops with different effected synth sounds around. Damaged is the first track in release and it built up around african percussion and straight hard kick. Track sounds softly at the start and goes harder to the middle adding electric sounds. The second part of release is Brain Divisio n. Starts with nice groovy reverbered saw sound and sub bass. Building up with some percussion and soft kick adding synth shots later. The sound of this track is dark and melancholic but still it is groovy and clicky. Track for all minimal lovers. Diagnostic takes us to the world of heavy dark sounds. Dark effected sounds combined with deep bass give a feeling of staying in scary empty room without any lights around. As the music goes percussion goes wider and rhythm changes and goes faster giving some hope.

Comment: These are quite minimal even for my standards, I think in a warm up set they would work for me. Diagnostic is the fave track out of the 3. Thanks
