This upload was 6th in the #experimental chart and 31st in the #ambient chart.

It's been a little while now that the Breton Antoine Pasqualini (1985), more fondly known as Monolithe Noir, has set up base in Brussels - and he's increasingly making his mark the scene. One only needs to consider his latest EP Le Son grave, which was released on Luik Records earlier this year. With a strong background in musicology and pop music, he turned towards modular synthesis, drone, and ambient sounds over the years - but never turning his back on his sonic roots entirely though, as evident with his mastering of rythmic melodies. Ahead of a busy season, Antoine's cooked up a concoction of stuff for us that he's been listening to for a few years now. A lot of inspirational sources for Monolithe's sound, with the recurring theme being drone, of course.

Thx Mononithe Noir, it's strange cause I don't seems to be able to find it anywhere but on your mix... (I've search on Youtube, your soundcloud and Elsie dx's one without result) Is there any Vinyl version of it ?
Thanks again
