Here we are again with the second track premiere for the week, this time covering the first release by the Leipzig-based art magazine, netlabel, and interdisciplinary cultural hub called Cime, established earlier this year. Releasing on Saturday, November 7th, the 18-tracks, 16-artist Cime Sampler compilation gathers different geographies and musical scenes to create an audio accompaniment to the debut magazine publication, Cime Magazine Issue 1.
In the past months, the Cime platform set out to investigate and encourage creative practices ranging from laptop music production to visual arts and design, allowing for different kinds of outlets such as physical media, digital releases, IRL events, and others more. The ongoing project will reveal later this week the first steps in its artistic and cultural activities, on this occasion developed around the “One seeks to escape” catchphrase-slash-main theme.
The magazine will include an exclusive crossword puzzle, comic strips telling a modern-day love story, and essential thoughts around the end of neo-liberalism, oppression, and the possibility of revolution. Reportedly, the publication’s goal is to promote discussion and inquire into “the nexus between progressive art and political action“. With its 84 color-printed pages and over 30 young visual and conceptual artists participating, Issue #1 promises to be a variegated, outstanding, and colorful artifact.
Part and parcel of the issue, Cime Sampler is composed of cutting-edge contemporary electronics, energetic club compositions, and articulated digital cut-ups, featuring musicians such as Evil Medvěd, TTristana, Beatrix Weapons, Séverine, and Antonia XM (among others). The compilation comes with artwork by Hannes Fendrich, Alexander Turovsky, and Tom Fischer, and all the proceedings are set to go to the Berlin-based VBRG organization, committed to supporting the victims of right-wing, racist, and antisemitic violence.
We’re happy to share with you today, as a preview from the sampler, the stunner track called Coil, appearing as number three on the tracklist, courtesy of the In Dada Social affiliated, Vienna-based DJ and producer KoiFin. Drawing inspiration from a diverse mix of musical influences, KoiFin layers fragments of hard-hitting industrial percussion with organic textures and wistful melodies, as already shown with his appearances on Viennese label Ashida Park and Lisbon’s Circa After Death.
The exciting and variegated piece hosts a surgical dissection of multiple dancefloor-oriented genres and rhythmical solutions that are assembled back in different configurations glued together by dreamy pads and by the main, suspenseful melody. Push the button!

We are a non-profit organization registered in December 2018, operating since late 2015 as a webzine and media website. In early 2017, we started our own event series focused on arts, experimental, and dancefloor-oriented music. We reject every invocation to “the Future” meant as the signifier for capitalistic “progress” and “innovation”, fully embracing the Present instead; we renounce any reckless and ultimately arbitrary division between “high” and “low”, respectable and not respectable, “mind” and “body”; we support and invite musicians, artists, and performers having diverse backgrounds and expressing themselves via variegated artistic practices.
