transient – no war ep [kpu040] mp3

Release Text
Self-imposed workaholic Carl Martin has been writing tracker-based music since his early teen years, and is most familiar to the world of electronic music as TBTMO stronghold Transient. He kicks it uptempo with a smile on his face on this Kikapu EP; all of these tracks are very fun atmospheric breakbeat monsters, and every now and then this release speeds up and gets crazy on you, then slows down and chills out. These five tracks really do run the gamut of electronic music.
Released as mp3 in 2003 on kikapu.

transient – ancient ep [mtk110] mp3

Release Text:
We’re delighted to present a debut EP from US artist Transient, in the form of “Ancient EP”. With previous releases on Darla, Skylab Operations, and TBTMO, his enchanting electronica has been wandering happily around the world fora while now, and we’re happy to hasten its passage with thisrelease.

The debut track, “Gypsonic”, sets the mood perfectly, with sweeping synths, complex and beautiful rhythms, and agorgeously floating end product. The rest of the tracks on theEP only continue with that tradition, with “Tiny Flame”,all complex beats and smooth, smooth melodies, plus the guitarinflected “Self Validating Chipmunk” remix other highlights ofthis EP. So remember, if you want to stay happy for the permanent,choose Transient.

transient – be ep [mtk145] mp3


Release Text:
First things first – American artist Transient’s ‘Over The River And Through The Woods‘ on the One netlabel was probably our favorite netlabel release of 2004 – gorgeous laidback electronics that deserve approximately a million listens. And, since we loved the ‘Ancient EP‘ he put out on Monotonik a couple of years back, we asked him nicely for an exclusive new EP for us. So he delivered, and now we have the beautifully mixed-up melodics of the puntastically titled ‘Be EP’.

Starting out, we have ‘Ice’, a great stepping-off point for the experience, with pin-sharp percussion and dreamy melodies firmly to the fore. Then we get gratifyingly choppy, with ‘Pinocchio Jazzhands’ a strutting, funky electronic melange. A brief pause, with ‘Treelighting Ceremony…’ and its constant ambient waves, and ‘The Triumphant Return Of The Vigorous Chipmunk’ blasts up a continuation of a theme on Transient’s last Monotonik EP with aplomb. Finally, ‘Ace’ provides a counterpoint for ‘Ice’ and ends things off in style, all pulsing, almost Steve Reich-tinged swirling, repeating melodies with strange, wondrous complexity – marvellous.

Released as mp3 in 2005 on monotonik.

transient – whole symesta [od064] mp3

Release Text:
After his remarkable appearance on the Cucina Vagabonda compilation, Transient gently steps again into the lovable world of sweeping synths and melodious rhythms ‘n arpeggios. Tough at parts, yet mellow and expansed, always fading in beauty; an exemplar taste of melodic idm, synth-pop flavoured and so much poetic. As if in a tale where little fairies cure ill mini-robots. One of the best releases of 2004 already.

Progressive and calm, these tracks explore with great certainty the melding of bouncy hip-hop beats with ambient and idm.

transient – the little number eats the big number [mia055] mp3


Release Text:
second EP release by u.s resident transient shows the musically variation skills the man has. Extremely beutiful soundscape ambients floating around like peace itself. Follows up the style from the lighted apartment comp. earlier released on miasmah. It feels like time stops when the air conditioning sound of cemetary sunset persists. This is for cooling down after heating in the sun throughout the day.
