+----------------------------------------------------------+ +artist_-_Shokushu +album_-_Clouded,_Crowned,_Conquered. +cat#_-_[proc462] +year_-_2012 +bitrate_-_30kbps,MP3 +----------------------------------------------------------+ adding a new element of sound to the proc-rec roster, Yannick Houle, better known musically as Shokushu, sent this wonderful little ep over to proc for the world to enjoy, and now is your chance! hailing from the wonderful country of Canada, more specifically Montreal, this musical mastermind of ambience has recently embarked on a more upbeat approach to music, and has combined his skills with both styles quite well! intense rhythm segments coincide with lucious ambient textures, allowing you to float effortlessly on a cloud of sound, taking you to various mental landscapes. However, his more experimental side is still quite apparent on this album, especially with tracks like scrambled memories where he lets go of the reigns and allows his music to be more liquid and follow it's own inclinations. this is a perfect introductory release from such a fine artist, although he is by no means a new-comer to the scene. he already has a pair of releases with the wonderful sirona-rec and another release on the netlabel "less ego more noise". I've not heard them as of yet, but if they're anything like this release, I'm certain they're worth the download!!! grab this one and throw it on your portable media device! :D Shokushu_-_Clouded,_Crowned,_Conquered.


+----------------------------------------------------------+ +artist_-_Qygen +album_-_Celestial_Hyperspeed +cat#_-_[proc461] +year_-_2012 +bitrate_-_320kbps,MP3 +----------------------------------------------------------+ Don't really need to explain this album too much. It's Qygen, the madman from Seattle who's trance-techno music has completely changed my initial preconceptions of the genre. As someone who appreciates all styles of electronica, I had been let down many many times by artists who simply could not properly make the trance that would get me moving, let alone make me want to listen to it more than once!! Maybe it's just because he's on my label that get's me so pumped, but one thing is for sure, I definitely am, and new music from Eric is always something to be appreciative of. while nothing of his has ever quite compared to his 5th album on proc, Enchanted, ( this album, which runs for almost an hour and a half comes dangerously close in my opinion. If you're someone who is still a little uncertain whether or not trance is a genre that you think you could ever love like you do with a different style, give qygen a try, and prepare to have your mind changed for you! sorry for the delay with music! NOISE WILL BE NOISE!!! Qygen_-_Celestial_Hyperspeed

new releases on 4m@

hey! there was supposed to be a new release on proc although due to a misunderstanding I had to remove it from the que. however, there are a handfull of new releases on 4m@ just WAITING to be heard, so get those while they're still hot :) NOISE WILL BE NOISE

c4 has been
a project I've
enjoyed doing
for a long, long time.
It was the first alias
I ever remember
using for the piss-poor
excuse of music many
years ago back in high
school, and I carried
it on though much of
my mid-twenties.
After some time, I
allowed the project
to go into retirement
and focus more on
Graffiti Mechanism.
This soon became
an issue as I felt
it was losing
it's identity
through sheer
and a lack of
crucial definement.

I have since brought
c4 back and have
been using it regularly
to devote myself to
the acid-techno genre,
hoping to once again
make c4 an alias that
people can relate
to and appreciate as
a project which suits
a particular need.

At any rate,
over the years,
I generated a lot
of music that for
one reason or
another was never
released and instead
lyed dormant
on hard-drives or
This is one such album.
originally intended to
accompany the
first transient release
of the series, released
on abulia concepts back
in 2008, this album
was accepted though
never released.
Upon re-discovering
it, I decided to
allow my own label,
proc, to release it
and hopefully allow
it to recieve some attention.

Based around
the concept of
a simple loop,
these pieces
are intended to be
played individually,
as opposed
to traditional albums
which are listened
to as a whole.
the listener can choose
to play these
loops for as long
as they desire, although
I admit that this
concept can quickly
become tedious and
boring, I still very
much enjoy
these pieces and
the strong, emotional
memories which
are attached to them.

so yeah, hopefully
you can appreciate
this album for what it is.
If not, that's okay.
I still think you're awesome :)

stay strong and positive.




In August of
2007, proc-rec
hit the www
and officially
became a
netlabel with
it's first release
from a duo
known as BIOC.
the duo,
whose members
were none
other than
mathias aeschlimann,
the head of
the infamous
20kbps records,
and his
good friend
Johnny Sleeper,
both of whom
are sound
geniouses in
their own right.
Now, nearly six
years later,
proc is
happy to host
their second
work as bioc
with their album
"Roman Numbering"

Once again
themed and
named around counting
and digits, this
DIGITal release
is much more
minimal and
calmer than
it's counterpart.
While quite
similar in style
and structure, this
release is
less dark
and secluded, with
an emphasis on
spacious sound-scapes
leaving you
feeling as though
you were floating
high above a forest
late at night, with
campfire smoke
filling your nostrils
with the
wonderful scent
of original serenity.
An all-together
release, I've found
myself returning to it
many times
and forcing
myself to search
for flaws
or something
that could have
been perfected, but alas,
no such things could
it's just great
evening and
coffee music
and should
be treated
as an album of
crucial importance
for those who
have been searching
for something
new and original.

unplug the phone,
turn out the lights,
strap on some
headphones and
sit in your
favorite chair,
because this one
is going to absorb
you a little while.

after over a half-decade
of waiting, part two
of this wonderful
project is FINALLY
available to the public!

THIS is proc....

In keeping with
the current inertia
of proc's recent
revival, and due
partially to a brief
transition of available
time, I decided
to get another
wonderful release
out to the world that
had been criminally
sitting on my hard-drive.

Coming out from
the shadows of
the deep-underground,
Carfil, a long-time
contributer of
the netlabel
movement and
fellow member
of the proc-rec
family decided
to allow his newest
excursion into the
realm of audio-brilliance
to be released
on my label!

A quartet of brief
but highly impactive
pieces are what you'll
find on this release.
Built and living around
basic rhythm sections
which allow the tracks
to move forward, the
slightly distorted,
delay-ridden melodic
structures add an
element of dynamic
to these pieces, notably
within the first moment
of the opening piece,
and also within much of
the third track.

Carfil is a skilled
musician, and
his equipment list
which is comprised of
a few hand-held devices
only strengthens this fact.
Finding impressive ways
of turning the ordinary
into something with
character and soul
is what he does best.

Fans of carfil
are sure to
thoroughly enjoy
this latest release,
although it sould be
mentioned that
this release gives
way to his more
experimental side
and shows him
attempting things
which I personally
have not heard
him do on any
past proc-rec

If you're not
going anywhere
for about 15 minutes,
sit down and get
aquainted with this one :)

ah jeez, let's see if
I still remember
how to do

I'm terribly sorry
about the
delays within
the musical-releasing
timeframe, although
as with all past proc
releases, this bad boy
was WELL worth th wait!!

coming to you from
two men whom I have
infinite amounts of
respect for, Consistency Nature
and Rainbow Valley
have teamed up for
the first time on proc-rec
to bring to the world
some wonderful
ambient textures, done
so exquisitely
and with such amazing
execution, it makes me
wonder how this
generation could ever
go a day without hearing
such fine experimental
ambient audio.

Both men approach
the genre with
their own tactful purpose,
adding to their
low-fi pieces a signiture
sound which is uniquely
their own.
Rainbow Valley
with his slow, deliberate
layering and build-up of
orchestral meloncholy,
and CN with his
epic droning backdrops,
filling in the moments
of brief silence with
epic static outbursts
and global collective
sighs of contentment.

yep, it's one of
THOSE albums.
a classic by every
stretch of the imagination,
and one that sets the
bar high for what proc
hopes to prove
to the mainstream
I figured, since proc
is back, why not
remind the underground
what it's really all about.
great music.
plain and simple.

noise will be noise.

please be patient!

I'm having some
issues with logging
into the proc-rec server,
and therefore have
not been able
to release any music
I encourage your
continued interest in
and support of proc-rec
during this brief
period of
un-intended solitude.

until then, feel -free-
to download the -free-
and wonderful music
already available
through the netlabel,
both at proc AND 4m@

stay strong and positive,
and remember...

with all of the commotion
and whatnot taking place
surrounding the possibilty
of major internet sites being
blocked in an effort to keep
pirating from happening,
proc records encourages
it's artists to become
even more networked
than before, and to embrace
originality through open-source
such is the way
of our culture
to simply steal
thoughts and ideas
from other people and
build upon them,
that very few so-called
artists, (specifically
those who are heard on
the radio)
are doing anything
original or worthwhile.
however, once again, proc
proves the point the neccessity
for a counter-culture
movement to exist through
an internet medium.
having access to accepting,
open minded individuals
such as Mr. Nick Newland is truly
a treasure and one that should
be embraced and carefully

Nick is the newest member to
the proc-rec family, and while
his impact on the music
scene has been quite noticable
(...seppuku+ and DATAMOSHPIT...)
we have only recently had
the pleasure of experiencing
his musical awesomeness
firsthand just recently.
An amazing debut
album, JEM is all over
the genre-map, finding solice
in various forms of ambience,
and atmospheric
techno, and even
bits of harsh
power-noise electronica,
all of which have a very
chilling and calculated
detachment about them
that leave the listener
feeling left on the outside
looking into the mind
of Nick, which could
very well be a pandora's box
in and of itself.

what I found most
interesting about
this release was it's
old-school sound, which
reminded me very much
of the early days of orbital
in some aspects.
this of course is merely
my own opinion and intended
to be a compliment
held in the highest regards.
(Output 28 is what
really gave this effect
on me).
this is truly a wonderful
little album
and can be played in a variety
of circumstances, the best
of which require
full attentiveness and a good
pair of headphones, although
I've also found it to
be adequate as
a background-music
album as well.

regardless of HOW you listen
to it, just make sure you do.

the first of hopefully many
more to come at proc
from him...


noise will be noise

live performances
aren't an exact science,
but few artists really have
the ability to effectively
provide a quality show.
when the lights go dim and
all eyes and ears are
focused on you, THAT is
the time when you
need to show them
what it's all about.
let those people
hear your latest experiments,
show them why the passion
you have for music goes
beyond simply a hobby!!!!
General Mike.
The name says it all.
He IS the man in
charge of the Army of 2600,
but his expertise in
sound assimilation extends
to the outermost
reaches of the sound

Well known under a variety
of other pseudonyms,
Mike Bourque is the
mastermind behind
AO2600, and his passion
for music can be heard
in an extensive catalog
of impressive
music all over
the netlabel multi-verse.
Armed with outdated
technology, Mike
single-handedly proves
what can be accomplished
through sheer simplicity.

On this latest installment
of his at proc, we can hear
ourselved being sucked into
yet another remarkable
To the best of my reckolection,
this is our second live-recording
set from Mike, the one prior
was under his Xenocats alias
from back in 2008
( )

weighing in at just over
half an hour, this well-recorded
show is an excellent
representation of his various styles
all becoming amalgamated
for your listening pleasure :)
being very genre-expansive,
Mike shows that his skills
with sound can cover everything
from the harshest electronic
drone textures, to distorted 8-bit
(or lower?) breakbeats.

proc has been blessed
to have a vast selection
of work from mike's
career as an artist, and I
always keep a slot
open for his latest
release whenever I get
the chance.
I thoroughly enjoy
hosting releases that consist
of live-performances, and
it should be quite apparent
why Mike is easily one
of the most respect-deserving
artists within the underground.

thanks mike for all you do!

without a second wasted,
it is time for me to release...

like every other great label,
there is usually always a core
grouping of artists which defines
or represents what the
direction of the label is
all about.
It's values, it's musical
direction, but most importantly,
what it seeks to define itself as.
Too often we forget who
and what we are.
We lose our identity
in an effort to fit in with those
around us or whom we admire,
and in the end, our quality
of life suffers purely because
of our desire to change into
something we think is better.
proc, on the other hand,
doesn't dwell on preconceptions
or false admiration from others.
We don't rely upon trendy
scene hipsters to download
our music onto the smartphones
their parents bought them and
then pretend to know what they're
talking about.

From his initial release
with proc way back in...2008(?),
RedSK has been on the top
of the list of people who
truly embody everything
that proc stands for.
He bleeds his art, distorted sine
wave's flowing through his blood
stream as he progressively
moves the noise scene further
down the path of finely-tuned
dedication amongst a
plethora of weekend-warrior
screamo bullshit.

This new album, while an
excellent representation
of who and what Patrick Doyle
is, is still only a vague
glimpse of why he does
what he does, and an even more
vague experience into
the whole mindset of what
a noise ARTIST is all about.
If, after listening
to this album you still don't understand...
guess what? fuck you,
because you never will.

With everyone out
to screw each other
over these days, rest
assured that proc and patrick
are a force to be reckoned with.
the unstoppable force
has met the unmoveable object.
It's gunna get ugly.
