Greetings. Let me introduce my new moniker Unihalvaus. Brand new tape and Unihalvaus' first release is a C40 split tape with Nasht (a drone project of fellow Finn Mikko who is familiar name from such units as Fricsvel, Slave Hands, Flesh Weapons and I even don't know how many more).
Tape (which is third release from Siunattu Hiljaisuudessa prod.) is limited to 50 copies, I have 20 of them left.
5€ + post (or trades).
The second release under Siunattu Hiljaisuudessa prod. label is 'Teeth', a 4-way split tape compilation featuring myself as Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo, Kadaver from Israel, Mampos from Malaysia and 886VG from Chile. Expect some harsh, crude and brute noise. 60-minute cassette is limited to 50 copies and it was 1:1 duplicated again by Upper Class Twat Tapes. Lovely full color cover was made by me. It was the first time I actually loved making the cover.
7€ + shipping (or a good trade) - act fast since they won't be there forever.
Most of the physical releases (there will be more this year) will be released via my small scale label Siunattu Hiljaisuudessa prod. It is not a 'real' label, it is just a vehicle for releasing my own stuff or split releases with other artists. Unless I win in lottery or get some serious financial contributions they will be released only in very small editions (25 or 50 copies).
There are plans for another 4-way compilation, split tape (Unihalvaus debut release) and a collaboration tape in a future - maybe even Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo tape. Let's see what happens.
Approaching the new age (and I'm not talking about New Age) with a new 4-way split cassette "Juurimusiikkia Teknologian Jättömailta" which translates something like 'roots music from technology wastelands'. It's a very limited 50 copies only edition - nearly half of which is already gone - 60 minute pro-duplicated tape (by Upper Class Twat Tapes). Along with Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo (yeah that's me) there's moody ambient noise from Fricsvel, old-school industrial from The Day Of The Antler (familiar name from a few collaborations with SSS) and harsh noise from Deattán.
If you feel like getting one, I prefer trades, it's 6€ + post.
Dear You. From now on I've decided to end the activities of my Salakapakka Sound System moniker. Why? Because there's always been a wide array of styles released under that name (which I hate nowadays), from harsh noise to dark ambient and musique concrete. First, I didn't care but lately I've felt that it would be easier for me and easier for you (maybe?) if different styles could be expressed under different names: Hazarda Bruo Sonsistemo for harsh noise, Itsensäsyöjät for beat-oriented minimal electro and yet unnamed project for drone/ambient. Of course those styles will overlap sometimes but the overall separation between these all should be clear. The only thing where Salakapakka Sound System could raise it's ugly head is the situation when there could be a one more part in a series of 'La Musique Concrète' or Buddha Machine. But that's only a distant string of thought.
So, thanks for reading.
Now it's official; Salakapakka Sound System is officially included in the industrial genre history writing. See why. It's sad that it seems like the great Encyclopaedia of Industrial Music series never made it to part IV. I really enjoyed the first three parts.
