Today Capiroto Records is annoucing Assurbanipal, new EP by LPascolatti. With official release 14th of June.
Assurbanipal, or Asshurbanipal, was one of the greatest emperors of the neo-Assyrian empire; who ruled the Iron age world from his palace in Nineveh, modern days Iraq, where he cultivated an ancient library in cuneiform language. His palace was deeply explored by British archaeologists in the 19th century, such as Sir Austen Henry Layard. In 2014 the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) occupied the palace of Nineveh, during that time they bulldozed several of the monuments who survived the centuries. The palace was later re-occupied by Iraq forces in January 2017.
idea when composing Assurbanipal was that it should be vast and long as the
neo-Assyrian empire, with all its greatness, gathering several different
cultures and types of inspiration from an age. The production and its whole
arrangement resulted from distinct recording sessions of synthesizers,
exploring different harmonic scales, digital and analogue effects on a time
that a lot of his inspiration resulted from reading about Bronze Age’s decadence
and the emergence of a new era in the ancient Eastern world.
extended play has been recorded before the one-track live album (in 7 acts) ‘Nada
como um dia após o outro dia’, which also explored Bronze Age’s decadence trying
to bring into comparison current times’ downfall. What would be our modern days
bronze? The oil? Information and data? The global commerce hegemony? Political
hegemony? To having one’s religion and ideology prevail?
With Assurbanipal, LPascolatti’s goal is to bring ancient history into contemporary electronic music and using it to establish a parallel with the present time. Finding a way to sing the imaginary past by contemporary mechanisms of music production while shaping the music of the future.
After releasing Pyramids of Greed (2018) and Side Chains (2019), NoHealer is back with another single released by Capiroto Records, this one with a spring feeling, called Sunrise, released 17th of April, 2019. In total, the single contains three tracks, being the first Sunrise, with a pretty arpeggio in the intro, followed by an energetic Shine On and ended with Sea of Rays, a track with rhythmic patterns typical of what is traditionally known as IDM. Again he presents an electronic music that brings back an early synthpop mood, with modern dance patterns, such as the early Kraftwerk or Italo-disco with some contemporary elements.
Sunrise is also available as a video clip in YouTube produced by NoHealer himself:
Capiroto Records presents you Alvinos Zavlis, composer and producer from Cyprus and based in UK, with his debut album We All Float… due to official release in all digital platforms on 5th of April, 2019. The album mixes electronic music composition, with some elements of downtempo, IDM, post-dubstep and pop music, providing us with stunning sounds, sometimes meditative, others full of energy and joy. We All Float… sounds fresh and young, it shows all the potential Alvinos has to offer as a composer and producer in the future, as it’s his first album after The Fusion EP (2018) and his latest single Watermelon. Track 8, Dragging Me Under counts with the vocals of Luke O’Gorman, that also contributed as a songwriter. The artwork is credited to Alvinos himself, plus Orestis Zavlis and Ektoras Parperis.
On 30th of March, Capiroto Records released Haunted, album by H+, project of Malcolm Swan, from Bermuda island.
The idea of H+ comes from reading a lot of science fiction. He got the impression that some of the writers of science fiction were creating technologies that they would like to see in the future. Looking at current technology he thinks that science fiction writers have had an impact on the present day, so their writing inevitably will influence the future. Could music have the same impact? The obvious solution would be expressing the ideas with the lyrics, and while H+ believes in using words to express ideas he wanted the music to be the thing that excites the imagination.
In Haunted we can find elements typical of IDM, British Dubstep and Drum & Bass, mixed with some jazz elements, a rich album, that contain tracks involving a more phantasmal and demoniac thematic, nothing more appropriate to a label called Capiroto Records. Malcolm shows himself to be an splendid bass player in the whole album, which highlights the jazz influence on it.
Before working with H+, Malcolm has worked on a project called 1undred, since 2012.
Capiroto Records presents you Lewo, from Berlin, Germany, with an outstanding techno EP, called Otto. In total, three long techno productions, almost progressive. Chamhoi opens the EP, a shorter track, minimalistic, with a stunning chord progression, which is followed by Poisville and Sumitomo, two longer recordings, with deeper exploration of textures, rhythms and sounds.

Side Chains is NoHealer‘s new EP, containing 4 tracks that explore the world of electronic music production with his special tune. A touch of retro, cyberpunk-like, sometimes inclined to techno, others to trance. In the end, Side Chains proves itself to be an unique piece of work, with singularities that are many times absent from the worldwide electronic music scene, that easily falls into constant fads.
NoHealer comes from Moscow, Russia. He is releasing with Capiroto Records for the second time, after Pyramids of Greed, released on the 21st of December, 2018.
Official Release: 15th of February, 2019. Available in Bandcamp.
Capiroto Records presents you mng_O, dubstep producer and DJ from Baltimore, Maryland (USA) and his first EP, containing four tracks.
The name mng_0 comes from Mango Tango, a name used by him when he was DJing at Fraternity Parties in his college. When he cut his teeth DJing and learning music production. In total, 4 tracks heavily influenced by old school dubstep, with contemporary electronic music such as synthwave.
