We are very excited to unleash the November episode of the MINDCAST series, a dark romantic, laid back but powerful and eclectic journey through ambient, contemporary electronica, classics and noise, compiled and recorded by our much respected friends PLASTER.
Plaster was born 2008 in Rome. As an electronic music project, originally founded by Gianclaudio Hashem Moniri also known as KAEBA and Giuseppe Carlini alias AGAN [who contributed a stunning mix earlier: Mindcast.19], they get mostly characterized by a dark and deep sound image.
Their musical direction aims to mix ambient music with deep beats and sharp but crispy sounds, arranged in a technique where every sound can be interpreted as a story by itself. Plaster releases their first official album called Platforms in 2011, published by the Ukrainian label Kvitnu and followed with strong outputs on labels such like Stroboscopic Artefacts, Touchin' Bass, SonuoS, Crazy Language and Brainstormlab.
The project, currently run by Gianclaudio Hashem Moniri, just released the brand new album "Mainframe", which comes in a exclusive special die cut cardboard sleeve, printed with pure silver paint and a black abrasive inner insert.
Mainframe is the third Long Play on Kvitnu and delivers Plaster's well known and much respected sound – multilayered in it´s complexity, extremely deep, full of sophisticated harmonies joined with pure abstract minimalist flow.
