Mytrip & Yhdarl "Debris" CS

Order via Kontingent Records

On November 8, 2011, Mytrip & Yhdarl played their first and last collaborative show in Sofia, Bulgaria. While some live video footage of the performance can be found online, the set itself wasn’t properly recorded. However, in preparation for the live, Belgian multi-instrumentalist Déhà and his Bulgarian counterpart Angel Simitchiev, recorded two long-form sessions constructed of pretty much the same source material that was used for the concert. These are now available via Kontingent Records under the name ‘Debris’, with the second track ‘Leper’ being exclusive for the tape version of the release.

A very limited run of t-shirts is also available at the label in celebration of the release.


Recorded live by Angel Simitchiev & Déhá on Nov 6, 2014

Angel Simitchiev & Linus Schrab "Airborne" CS

First album I'm releasing under my own name, a collaboration with Linus Schrab (V I C I M, Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet, Purlieu Recordings). Of course released via Amek Collective on tape limited to 80 copies & digital.

“Airborne” is a collaborative album from Angel Simitchiev (Mytrip, Dayin), also the first one released under his real name, and Linus Schrab (V I C I M, Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet, Purlieu Recordings). Throughout its seven tracks we observe two individual creative visions organically merging to shape a sound of its own. “Airborne” was recorded in May 2019, during an intense creative weekend in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The album showcases different facets of Simitchiev and Schrab’s rich musical palettes. From the ritualistic melancholia of opener ‘Initiation’, the industrial intensity of ‘A Smoke That Will Never Clear’, to the anemoia-inducing ghostly melodies of the self-titled piece and the dystopian, yet forlorn soundscapes of the album’s longest piece ‘Spores of Humanity’, “Airborne” is a work that combines ambient delicacy with the intensity of noise and post-industrial soundscapes.
