Works with found sounds, voices, fieldrecordings, live wavs and midi's and mixes them in his own cross-rhythmic way.
exploring the secrets of drone and silence, trying to expand the moment in time, sphere and mood, tripping you to unknown places.
A part of goal is always to catch the complexity of a moment, a still; and from there explore the surrounding dimensions, moving you around on the same spot, only trying to make the spot seem bigger, broader, deeper and higher....

First releases on the Musictrade Netlabel in 2005 on the MT003 (Norberg 2005 Field Mixes) on the MT005 (Requiems for a Submerged City), a New Orleans tribute album, and the recent MT010 (Ice Mustard). Completely free downloads also on Mininova, where hi-res 24 bit flacs are available too.
Developing since then with influences from classic masterpieces towards more ambient, drone-like pieces that try to capture the full complexity of silence, as well as more rhythmic experimental pieces that try to shift yer mood rather than move yer feet.
Started some collaborations, where the songs with Justbase were released february 2007. In the mean time Ancient Species and JamatriX are released. A great base of virtual cooperations is realised since then.

"This musical travel agency is specialized in surprise destinations" my friend Doc says in one of his reviews, and KraftiM is honored with this qualification. Circling around but still getting further like a friendly tornado that hopes to touch you gently on its way....

Later regularly releases come here on Jamendo, production keeps growing, and collaborations are evolving.
First full albums: BackvieW and Ancient Species, later main albums FraxurY and Jobin. Inbetween Resur, etSitara, Depht and some Jamendo link till now the FuKuS and Bance projects. More stuff constantly appearing on different netlabels like Musictrade and Black Square, check those free treasures of experimental music....

After the latest releases KraftiM stopped making music. But the music still lives on, seemingly more urgent now than ever. KraftiM heard april 2020 there was no more cure for his cancer and only paincontrol was left. But meanwhile, may 2021 still walking around a bit, and took the offer here to release more tracks than only 3. So check here from now on regularly for re-releases.....


Glad to hear from you...

Jamatrix is the second full album release on Musictrade from the Dutch experimental electronica artist and sound architect KraftiM. The Jamatrix project was based on samples collected from five artists who all are releasing their music on the French Jamendo website. From each source track six samples were distilled and subjected to a thorough processing treatment, resulting in a matrix where each of the six KraftiM tracks uses material from five selected samples, one from each of the contributing artists. These are the contributing artists and their works being sampled:



The Abogix (link.): "I dreamed... I was a bird" from album "Welcome in my Dreams"

Arne Pahlke: "Projekt Demon" from album "Dunkel"

Albert B: "Pichu's Suite" from single "Pichu's Suite"

Melchiades Estrada Band: "Symbiose" from album "Music of Youth"

pan:core: "Another Day, Call from Italy" from album "Breath On"
Especially for this Jamendo release an intro, outro and bonustrack are added. These tracks won't be on the Musictrade/Mininova release.



KraftiM thanks the above Jamendo collegues for their great trust and contribution.

KraftiM - Flaxas

A jazzy sidestep from KraftiM. Generously chief Alfred from Benin delivered som great wav's he played on his sax, and allowed kraftiM to play with these lines.

These sounds were treated in the KraftiM-way, were stretched, reversed, distorted, pitched and delayed, and finally blended with the originals and offsprings into 4 amazing tracks,

ending in a shuffle where you task is to find the ideal sequence on a nice evening or night. Let me hear your favorite 1, 2 ,3 and 4

Originally only tracks 1,2 an 4 were released om Jamendo, track 3 was put on the album Refelt. Here, for convenience, all 4 tracks are gathered.

Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend

Hello dear listeners. Today all tracks are uploaded. So my very first album is completed now, and a real backview is possible. Containing much drony ambient pieces i hope you enjoy.

Ivan1984 wrote on Jamendo about BackvieW:

To listen properly to these tracks you really need the time and space and lack of disturbance, to experience these monologues of musical introspection. After the very abstract, almost desolate at times, first four tracks, Bilena sneaks up like a dinner party when you've had too much narcotic for your aperitif. Then comes big, bad Drong to assail your acoustical senses, it's dark, it's deep, it's postmodern devolvement at it's best. Then it's back to the party and this time everyone's a little more relaxed, chilled by the profound resonances you drift into some obscure angles of sound, into flashes of an amoebic orchestrastration, interspersed with moments of dark panic. Followed by the wild hallucinations of the eighth track, full of the knowledge that larger wheels are turning now, one's beyond your control, is this what it comes down to? Awl that can be said is that this is, especially for being the first, thoroughly recommended to those who have the time and open minds to what we have in front of us and what those who are in control are willing to force feed us with. I like this album, it was a nice little foray into the journey. Thanks:-)

yes, its possible.
on the new minialbum Refelt

Refelt, originally relased 18-04-2008 on Jamendo

This small album is meant for the hardcore KraftiM fans.

Refelt contains previously unreleased material:

Egawen part 1 and Criguere part 1 belong to the Ancient Species album

Flaxas 3 is the missing piece from the Flaxas ep

Analogemini should be on the featuring Justbase ep

Haumter is an extra for the Backview album, composed in the same mood.

Have tripping fun, and just be patient: other releases will follow regularly

Greetings

Kraftim



Some reviews:

Ivan1984 wrote: Good start, strong, assertive, by the third track, i've been waiting at the junction of the data stream and suddenly, i'm in deep, pulsating structures reverberate around me as I float through the data bass. Then the ghost in the machine becomes present with it's devilish fanfare of luxury, slowly devolving as it passes, still whirling its dervish!-) into a deep, resounding night. And there you are outside, in the night, pitch black save for their incessant, sibilant rattlings and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Deep in the abyss, the haunter dwells!-)

@marac wrote: Hardcore ambient. No mercy here, KraftiM takes no prisoners. Either you dig it, or you die in pain. Be warned. Like the artist says - this album is only for his hardcore fans. Or, trying to be more precise - for fans of hardcore ambient. If you belong to any of these categories, add 5 to my rating. If you're not, don't run away (yet). Just start your adventure with KraftiM from his other, more accessible, works, like "etSitara", "JamatriX" or "Ancient Spieces". They are great.

loveovergold wrote: Electronic music genre trippy or psychedelic. The meaning of these two should be "Bring awareness out of the ordinary, in the direction of higher states of consciousness". Even this album is a journey in that direction. Despite both a collection of different periods, can move the mind in that direction. The first song belongs to the period of "featuring Justbase ep" album and there is a sense of the movement of energy that you are meeting ... just let through without resistance and will be in harmony with the atmosphere of the second track, where you can fluctuate and observe yourself with detachment ... you are free from bond reactions simply observe what happens .... and you are lost in the third song ... in the magic of time .... your memories flowing before you as a train and you watched them roll .... they are your past, but can no longer touch. The second and third song, in fact, belong to the period of "Ancient species" album. An authentic experience of the mystery of time. The fourth song belongs to the period of "Flaxas ep" album; very clear and at the same time disturbing. Two faces of the same coin. The reality as we know it for the ordinary perception, and an unknown and hidden energy that moves from the depths. The fifth song is age of "BackvieW" album; an album really incredible. In this song you are inside that dimension of not ordinary reality. Here we are inside our body and what we feel is our internal organs, as if our hearing was inside of them. Silence and vibration organic! Pure perception. This album has a remarkable value for lovers KraftiM'music and its fun.
