Immortal is a fever. A delirium that whispers 'time is not forever'
No Beginning. No Ending. No Center. Just Release.
grew out of an increasing dissatisfaction with a music industry which
seems to have grown old, tired and confused. All 'industry' and no 'music',
its lack of vision comes at a time when there is a corresponding explosion
of creativity and networking amongst artists and musicians at the fringes
of culture - outside the traditional model - discovering new tools and
Inspired by connectivity in all its manifestations and with a hunger
for experimentation and deconstruction, No Immortal came into being
in the fall of 2000. Positioned to take a defiant, uncompromising stance
on life, love and creativity, No Immortal seeks to contribute to the
rich arena of digital arts, music and multimedia as it unfolds in its
ever mutating forms. We will journey where others sometimes fear to
tread and attempt to navigate a more rewarding course through the sea
of mediocrity. Our way is to find a path with heart - one which is as
exhilarating as it is beautiful.
No Immortal will be a calling card for the most forward thinking and
radical artists across a range of genres - those tired of mind numbing
conformity or pandering to existing notions of 'underground' or 'mainstream',
'electronic' or 'acoustic', what's cool and what's not. The intention
is to generate a compelling catalogue that showcases experimental music
while at the same time isn't afraid of being accessible and.... well,
just enjoyed for the hell of it!
Beginning. No Ending. No Center. Just Release.

first solo Bedouin Ascent EP since
'Pavilion of the New Spirit' on Rising High Records. [PURCHASE
Biswas continues his no-fi games with rhythms so irrational they playfully
tease the linear structure of sequenced music to produce the exquisite
effect of perpetual rolling. Spiralling currents pulled by ever tighter
forces in an open field of possibility. Turning, turning... Lost forever
in the loving warmth of urban noise and the sweetest tension.
While the whole of the dance arena concerns itself with the mechanical
rhythm of propulsion - like drones synched to a universal clock, locked
in constant forward motion - junk_force adopts a wholly lateral stance.
Beats spiral, moving, at once, forward, sideways and backwards - like
the adrenaline rush of a brisk young breeze, constantly changing direction
- because there's just so much sky! Change is, ultimately, the only constant.
up next is the long awaited new cut from Apache 61 - china_syntax.
Apache 61 is no 'new face in the race' - With previous albums on Japan’s
Daisy World and remixes for Coldcut and Yellow Magic Orchestra among others
she has an impressive track record. Her freestyling, 'on-the-pulse' live
performances have boosted her reputation yet further taking her to the
heart of the club and festival scene in the UK, and as far a field as
the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia. In fact, she is one of the few
tech heads brave enough to actually do it live: a sound of intricate beats
and layers of detailed percussion on the one hand, but executed with death
defying intent and passion....
On this 4 track EP, china_syntax, she once again takes centre stage to
show the boys how to mash the beats with style and purpose! Out-Funk /
Break-Punk / Electro. She demonstrates a compelling ability to express
the most elusive shards of, otherwise discarded mood and sentiment, whilst
simultaneously engaging the body in a heady affair of movement and brutal
dynamics. Total entertainment for brain and leg! Available 1st October
Ascent album 'Jerx' available soon
new material available in 2009
