Release Text: Carl Martin has been running Noisy Vagabond, his personal netlabel, for a long time. He’s an old friend that comes from the mythical tracker scene we’re so found of. Normally recording under Transient, he brings us two great tracks as Beat.Dowsing. One is an exploration in poptronica and the other a leftfield, dreamy hip-hop track where he spits some knowl.
Music, made deep in the woods.
The big rabbit invites you,
to listen to the sounds of the creek,
the trees and the birds.
This release is impressive in some ways. You see the creek depicted on the cover artwork? It’s one of the artists favorite spots to chill and to create music. He produced all the music in the forest using a tablet computer, making most of the tracks in the stunning forests around the albums namesake ‘Chiquesalunga Creek’.
And the artist is none other than one of the root free Netaudio stars online – Transient. Having released last year on Phonocake as Beat.Dowsing we now connected again to bring you his new seven track album under his original moniker.
And that’s not all! You are invited to remix and explore the tracks! — the source files which can be opened in Sunvox are included – a first for Phonocake. Please send any remixes to the artist and to us. Contact and instructions are included in the Source files directory.

Release Text: This is the special remastered edition of “Symphony Of Curves” EP by Transient (originally self-released back in 2010). A sample-heavy trip into deep downtempo dimensions and a tribute to the music of the 30’s to the early 70’s. Released as MP3 in 2010 on noisyvagabond, Re-Issued and Re-mastered by VPD on Dusted Wax Kingdom in 2013.
Bouncy, fun, enjoyable. Three words that can be associated by the latest release by guest artist ‘Fascinating Earthbound Objects’.
A short (18 minutes playtime) ep premier in the style of electronica crossed over with elements of dub and class. Sounds reverberate with slight details, good solid basslines and addictive elements. A worthy addition to the Kahvi catalogue! Track of choice is certainly the ‘can’t get enough of it’ Moonsun.
Mastering at Mnemonic studios, Helsinki, Finland.
Released as MP3 and OGG in 2012 on Kahvi.

Note: I’ve been developing a videogame version of this ep over the last year and a half. As of 06/14 I’m getting very close to completion so keep an eye out for it’s release. Here is the latest (although still pretty outdated) gameplay footage if you’d like to get a bit of an idea what it’s about.
Release Text :
It’s so great that we can welcome one of our alltime fav netaudio heroes here at Phonocake. KO, this is for you too! Congrats to Phonocake’s ninth birthday. Here comes Carl AKA transient, from somewhere off and on, in and around upstate NY, who’s been present since the beginning of audio and music in the www. He hasn’t released for about two years in a longer format and presents here his first material under the beat.dowsing moniker. Here we go with seven tunes and two bonus remixes to enjoy summer vibes and more.
