- 05 Dec 2010various artists - "reference point" mixed by selffish
for this special headphone commute podcast, selffish creates a cinematic mix, featuring his favorite releases from thinner and its now defunct sublabel, autoplate. "through the years i’ve been pretty much into recording nature and city sounds and decided to drop some of these recorded sounds into this mix as well. most of this music is available from archive.org and scene.org for free. it is an attempt to prove that there is some good music out there that doesn’t cost money to enjoy. it is also an attempt to create visual imaginary pictures through perception of the variety of sound textures present in this mix. the cover image is photographed by dmitry bulkin of "noosfera" in 2007 and is called “engure”. this image appears to me as the actual reference point of some sort in my own life, when i think of it. despite the featured dark colours, i find this image talking of important matters and there i also see it as a good connection with the music."

- 16 Jan 2007selffish on v/a - deep sea shipping (lmc800)
- "v/a - deep sea shipping" is a cd compilation on lagunamuch, an electronic label in moscow, russia, that has united many russian-speaking artists living in russia and abroad. deep sea shipping is a term borrowed from maritime logistics and navigation. it perfectly reflects the whole internal component of music on this compilation. the concept of deep sea shipping is rooted way back in the mythical worlds of h.p. lovecraft, as well as in the realm of sci-fi stories. moreover, the word 'deep' is of key importance here, because all the tracks on "deep sea shipping" were stylistically aligned with each other from the start, interconnected by such genres as deep-tech, deep-ambient and deep electronic. the compilation is opened by "initialization" followed by "deep sea shipping" - the two tracks produced by selffish. other artists featured on the cd are: lazyfish, unit21, kriipis tulo, sever, oid and other artists. please visit www.lagunamuch.com/index.php?static=19 (russian only) for more information about the "deep sea shipping" compilation cd.
