“Secret Thirteen Mix 064” is a systematic and dynamic music selection that fuses 59 magnetic records released between 1980 and 2013. This compilation contains timeless production by such striking artists as Autechre, Orphx, Emptyset, Demdike Stare, Aidan Baker, Shapednoise, Ugandan Methods, Zoviet France and other stylistically related talents.

The authors of the mix are Boris Noiz and Darko Kolar, Serbian electronic music producers and DJs, known as Ontal. Formed in 2011, the duo started to explore energetic, subtly harsh and obscure sound trajectories related to techno and industrial music styles, however Ontal formers are not newbies in the music scene. Noiz is productively releasing his solo works and runs a Lost In The Sound project, while Kolar has recently started his new imprint Unknown Structures. The great enthusiasm and subtle diversity in their works started to glow in the vast techno scene. Ontal remix for Fausten was recently released by Ad Noiseam, also they have recorded a few strictly rhythmic mixes for Mantis Radio and Subsekt audio platforms. Ontal has upcoming releases such as “Output EP” on Darkfloor and records on a promising Violet Poison label later this year. Ontal has performed in such notable events and festivals such as Exit Festival, Fondation Sonore, Naherholung Sternchen and more. These guys are definitely worth your attention as they got youthful maximalism, a lot of production coming out and a bunch of hidden gems to share.

“Secret Thirteen Mix 064” is a flexible and gradually expanding mix that mirrors the mobility, consistency and longevity of selected music. Mix was created by using multiple format records (vinyl, CD, cassette and mp3/wav) from the part of Ontal’s music library that influenced their sound and life. The developing of music is carefully thoughtful and accurate that can catch attention of every listener from the very first minute. It is more like a sound collage as many tracks beautifully unfolds while they are precisely mixed in a deliberate sequence. This type of layering creates new formations and consonances that generate diverse compositions sounding in another conceptual perspective. This mix could be related to musical styles such as IDM, techno, experimental, ambient. The basis of the mix stands on the skillfully and architecturally constructed and deformed beats, noisy and abyssal bass lines, mathematical synth patterns. Dexterous electronic modulation collisions with vigorous, compelling rhythmical matrix and spacious ambiance create a dimensional listening experience. High-quality, innovative and in some parts improvisational sound synthesis reflects Ontal’s view to their own measured production, its expression and perfection.

“Secret Thirteen Mix 064” is like a resistant Bruce Nauman contemporary lithograph “No” where emotive and irregular brush strokes antagonise or disorient. It is a refusal to offer solace or affirmation to the viewer who is looking only for fashion and temporary beauty. Ontal’s mix shows their tandem allegiance to different times production, their view to the work and responsibility, balanced musical taste that touches and inspires.
