Flat Affect is the atmospheric noise project of Shaun Phelps of Panama City, FL
Flat Affect rose from the ashes of multiple failed group-noise projects, fulfilling a need to record audio while realizing that other people cannot be counted on if one expects to make any progress.
Flat Affect was first released under the moniker “Nobody_Important” on Hypnoskull’s Dark Skies over Planet E. Hypnoskull had asked 100 artists from around the world to submit 5 seconds of sound.
Since that time, Nobody_Important changed to Project_Name, which changed to Alogiac Avolition, which became Bastard Child, which became Aud. In the midst of these horrible project names, Flat Affect rose to become an all-consuming force.
Flat Affect has been releasing albums at an exponential rate, from the humble beginnings of a single 3″ CD-r in 2005 to the 30 and counting releases in 2008. It is quickly becoming apparent that Flat Affect is an integral part of the international underground noise trading scene.

Pollux’s real name is Arnaud Barbe. He’s a 23 year old boy from Grenoble, France.
He started making electronic music in the end of 2007 during a depressed period within his life with a track titled “Frustration”, which is a mix of minimalist ambient indus sound & porn samples.
His first Ep was released on the Dustin Must Die Netlabel simply titled “Sirona”. This album was composed with some elements from hardcore techno and ambient tracks. As a reflection of his personality at the time, Pollux’s electronic music was divided into both parts of his personality.
It was in the end of 2008, when he discovered the label Proc-Records and release an Ep on it called “Version”, that he came to the conclusion that his heart was dedicated to ambient / electronica music and the endless possibilities of expression it was able to provide . It became clear that this style of sound was what he really wanted to explore and felt it fully expressed the real part of what he was.
It was also around this time that he discovered the lobit movement. His first exposure to the style was with the album “Soma/Psyche” which was released on Microbit-Records. Perpetuating his admiration and dedication to the lobit scene was the discovery of the 8ravens netlabel. It was then that he started to experiment with 8kbps sound, and debuted on a split with Graffiti Mechanism & Kai Nobuko. From then on, he became an active member of the Low Bitrate Community and showed his interest in the movement by continuing to release low bitrate music, while also paying close attention to others who were active as well.
2010 saw the debut of his first physical release, simply titled “Scan (Slow Version)”. In essence, it’s a mini cd-r which was released on the wonderful Kwark Records label, and was composed with a single dark ambient drone noise track. In tandem, Arnaud also has physical stuff. Here are some very symbolic physical releases for Pollux: A lobit,ambient floppy-disk album, “Riot From The Sky”. This floppy can be found on Diskette Etikette Rekords. A compilation of various beat tracks called “Blue Riot” in Kitty On Fire Records. The “Offeir Their Souls” split release with his friend Master Toad released on Trashfuck Records, a label who influenced him heavily in his noise production ventures. You can also listen a physical release in the styles of ambient, and brain dance-electronica titled “Crucial Hopes From Dead Birds”, released in Dark Meadow Recordings. Essentially, this is simply a compilation of three separate Ep’s, which together formed a comprehensive and concise Lp. To date, Pollux claims this album in particular to be one of his best releases at the time. More physical releases have been planned & released, this list is just some symbolic gaps in Pollux musical life.
In Janunary of 2009 he curated a netlabel known as Creative Obsession, although it became defunct after almost 50 releases. In March 2011, under the influence of Proc-Records and filled with experience and an adequate knowledge of the netlabel scene, he finally chose to start an entirely new netlabel, an unbiased place dedicated to all styles of electronic sound, regardless of the bitrate. This new netlabel, known internationally as Sirona-Records, quickly became an important netlabel in the underground scene through it’s strong emphases on endless experimentation and the strong community-feel which it conveys.
In addition to his new netlabel, Arnaud joined forces with the brilliant mind of Kai Nobuko to help break ground on the world’s first lobit webradio podcast called Tibol. Created to help share the love of low bitrate sound, it quickly gained traction from others in the lobit movement who were equally as motivated about being a Dj for Tibol. Already quite popular by many in the underground, the podcast seems to have a beautiful and positive future.
For those of you who want to get a better idea of what Pollux’s music sounds like, feel free to browse his vast catalog of self-crafted music, however, it should be known that he currently has more than 130 releases and is featured on roughly 40 compilations! But number is just a number, and remember: “Sincerity is the key”.

He released on multiple wonderful places all around the globe and goes from art, ambience to amazing thrilling poetry works and beyond.
In August 2011 he has started his own experimental label called Effluvia Recordings for his own outputs but most of all his growing musical friends.
with its first release of the famous Ploof with its Mars Amphitheater album there was no stopping to the effluvia of it all.. now 92 releases of interesting outer limits kind of music by a whole lot of great underground artists who dishdawash always introduce in a poetic art way his label has released its very first physical release in the shape of a good old tape!

obsolete broadcasting systeme
The OBS sound and musical projects are birthed in a suburban household basement located in the sprawling hub of the greater Moncton area in rural New Brunswick (Canada). This project is part of the anti-commercial, free music movement. OBS adheres to an amateur and fiercely populist agenda, specialising in dated or stereotypical hardware accessible to the common household (i.e., cheap gear). In the limitations we find unexpected avenues for creative expression.
completelyhooked on that fabulous lobit sound, OBS has created already many epic releases on some high class netlabels like o.a. top of the flops, rejected and sirona.. his music is very personal and will take you anywhere where OBS wants you to go. from outer space, to his place of birth. so we are looking forward at the performance of OBS at the Lobit Music Festival and wonder where his sounds will take us today!
Formed in 2010 by Noisesurfer and Loose Link as a Global Net
Band of improvised Sounds mixed for a simple Ep, the project went further and released a full album in 2011.
Late this year
the group make a new meeting for future release and added a new member Sven Meyer (4) for complete this fusion of sounds and roots around,Germany,New Zealand and Spain.
Sascha Muller aka Pharmacom start his career with DJing and producing in 1990. He was inspired by projects like Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and stuff like Sven Vath played in his DJ sets. The musical style reaches from ambient chill out, house and techno music in his own special way. His way of producing is the use old analog equipment in the same way as the newest software in digital producing. The greatest thing for him is to create new soundcollagen and wicked samples for his tracks. As a DJ he played in several european locations and events like love parade and thunderdome. At the moment he is also playing as a VJ and is involved in multimedia productions with some other global video and graphic artists.
he is great member of the lobit scene laying down lobit dance tracks for your feet to dance on!
he also runs the labels: super 6, chillzone records & pharmacon records..

where does HLO stand for? we have asked the dictionary and it came up with the following answers: 1) Hello 2) Helicopter Landing Officer (offshore oil and gas industry) 3) High Lunar Orbit 4) Helicobacter-Like Organism 5) Hot-line Operator 6) Hispanic Latino Outreach . i guess High Lunar Orbit is the closest one. but in this case it could be Hello and High in a LO bitrate!
which means that this artist/producer and DIY circuit bend genius from the usa (we forgot where!) will arrive here completely high, drunk and off his socks to give you the performance of a life time! he promised us some dancy breaks for the dancy break freaks, so get your freak on!
catch him if you can and be sure to sport some dancy shoes, ir go barefeet!

he released his output in lobit as well as in hifi on respectable netlabels. the project started long time ago with the self release of a cd-r with experimental womb-sounding sounds. unfortunately kai didn’t keep a copy for himself and probably nobody got this mythical CD-r to rent back…

He is known for his splendid dub wize mixes for various famous names.

Since 1980 he started to live a life in Jamaica, because he was inspired by Bob.
Bob lived when he was younger with his German dad in Mexico too.
And since Blob heard Bob singing ‘one love’ he fall in love with reggae music.
King of Kings Hale Selassie has given him a mission to continue the work of Bob and spread Jah love all over the world!
He has done some gigs with bounty killer and shaggy,
but they had some trouble accepting his color. (and his doggy friend) The Pink Blob always enjoys his life
and that’s where all his tunes are about!
