Dub For A Week - Kyoto Digital

Going to be down for at least a week so I leave you with this special treat for those who don't already have it or for those who only have some of these.

Kyoto Digital was a netlabel based in Denmark with the aim of releasing deep minimal music, where sound aesthetic and function are merged into an entity of hypnotic movement and form. Each release was available for free in 192 kbps mp3 format for a limited period of time. Some of these are available as vbr and 256 but most are 192 kbps. Would be great if there were a re-issue of these in higher bit rates.

This is a testament to some early releases in the "new" wave of dub techno artists that emerged out of the shadows of the Basic Channel and Deepchord/Echospace template circa 2004 to 2007 when the label closed. It may sound a bit odd but it is a little piece of history including, for example, what I believe is Mr Cloudy's first piece of released music.

For your listening pleasure all 15 are packaged here.

(Numbers 05 through 15 are freely available at so a special thanks to you know who for the first four in the series)

It appears that Xoki and Hieronymous (along with vocalist Nana Jacobi) have resurrected some semblance of the label as Kyoto Inc. So far they've released three EPs as a series called 'Kolortown'. You can find more info on the label
