eilean rec.

12 pieces

Eilean Rec. is an independent French label, run by Mathias Van Eecloo (of Monolyth & Cobalt) releasing ambient, electro-acoustic, experimental music, and everything in between. All physical releases are limited to about 50 to 200 copies, and are handmade with additional help in design from RĂ©mi Verdier. Conceptually, the entire project is based around a map with 100 points (and 4 color tones), each referencing an album, or rather the other way around. Each album slowly fills in a point on a map, completing the sonic puzzle of this imaginary island. Each artist involved in the project is also invited to submit a few grains of soil from wherever they come.

A sound map transcending our borderless world and the perception of sounds.

Today’s mix represents the 12 albums released this year with a selection of pieces from the 2014 catalog.
