Favela Discos


"Sarnadas, a multi-disciplinary artist based in Porto, returns with the second instalment of his drone opus The Hum. Titled The Humm, this second long-play album follows the first record, having resulted from the same two-day, extensive and intensive composing sessions during which the producer created eight hours of layered, ambient music. Sarnadas focused his endeavor on a stripped-down setup comprised of just a homemade synth, a mixer and some effects pedals, generating various layers of sound and manipulating their overlapping and apparently random relationship to create eight pieces of spatial, dreamy music, with ever-changing organic plasticity. The concept behind the double album The Hum lies in the new moniker Sarnadas, also known for his singer-songwriter Coelho Radiactivo persona, or as João Sarnadas, one of Favela collective's spearheads. As Sarnadas, the musician focuses on a more melodic approach to sound, unravelling new possibilities by relating simple elements, shifting over time and space. Drawing inspiration from the idea of cities humming their own tunes, as an expression of all things urban playing in the background, The Hum series describes Porto and Aveiro (Sarnadas's native city) pulsing lives through nuanced drones. Over the first long-play, Sarnadas created a series of bleak ambient pieces, with saturated sounds overwhelming senses as a means to create images surpassing the reality of each city. The Humm, on the other hand, all pieces of music shift from a lucid-dream feeling to a sensation closer to waking up, soberer and graced by dawn, where less abrasive layers allow the interpretation of clearer forms and images. Die-cut cover with two printed inner sleeves and sealed outer plastic sleeve." - Favela Discos.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
