A lot is happening and will be happening around here. We’re looking at a very busy schedule for 2011 and 2012, not complaining, but sometimes it seems as though things happen slower than we would like them to. Whether it’s interruptions created from our parallel lives as “9to5 professionals”, financial difficulties, or a sometimes understandable overall lack of energy, things always move forward, albeit at a slow pace. We are very excited about what the future holds for this label, and feel honored to be working with such friendly and talented people. Here is a list and some info about some of our upcoming releases, all of which will be available from the Fabrica Store:
FAB006 A FULL COSMIC SOUND s/t C-30
A Full Cosmic Sound (AFCS) is a constantly rotating improvisational ensemble from Santiago, Chile.The inspiration to form AFCS was born during the equatorial summer of 2007 in Carlos Barbosa, Brazil after Alvaro Daguer (a frequent collaborator of Chilean psych-jammers La Banda’s), Felipe Mantovani and Clovis Barbosa (both members of the experimental/dub franco-brazilian project Du O des Etoiles) shared a casual psychoactive-inspired UFO sighting.Since then, and with varying lineups, AFCS has been a natural and spontaneous union of bodies and souls on a cosmic trip. On this, their debut release for Fabrica Records, AFCS deliver a total of 5 tracks which conjure up the sounds emitted by playing dusty early “easy listening” electronic music records on your turntable, the psych/sonic explorations of Throbbing Gristle, Sonic Youth and Experimental Audio Research, and the echoes of Santiago’s busy urban sound-scape. AFCS features current and former members of Chilean psych-ensemble La Banda’s and Psychedelic Schafferson Jetplane.
Pro-dubbed edition of 100 (only 50 copies will be available for distribution in the USA).
FAB008 ORBLESS Spinning Liquid Mirror C-30
Spinning Liquid Mirror is a suite of deep journeys through modular synthesis. Influenced by research into planetary harmonics, phenomenological frequencies, and zero point energy systems, Orbless has delved headlong into closed system frequency modulation and self generated looping patches. With SLM, Orbless has pushed further into new realms of synthesis based composition.
Pro-dubbed C-30, edition of 100.
FAB009 EARTHMASTERS Dwellings C-20
EarthMaster’s compositions and improvisations produce submerged and cavernous sound environments. Heavily influenced by psych, drone, and slowed down 80’s new wave, EarthMasters taps into zonked out lo-fi psych pop, ritualistic chanting, and lush synth/vocal drones to create an ethereal sound-scape.
Pro-dubbed C-20, first edition of 50.

FAB004: STRNGLV Psychotropia C-30
“As the name suggests, STRNGLV’s Psychotropia is a highly trippy concoction of psychedelic electronic sounds set in a tropical jungle. The tape, released on a young Brooklyn label Fabrica Records, begins with a series of pulsing, sunlit drones descending from the canopy. The cassette insert lists an impressive list of both synthesizers and computer software. And for a good reason – the tape is amazingly multilayered and rich, almost pregnant with sound, existing more or less in the same dreamy equatorial headspace as High Wolf or Dolphins Into the Future. Psychotropia is scorching hot, well produced and incredibly trippy. ” Pro-dubbed edition of 50.
