au is a 20 minute piece which brings to mind William Basinski’s Disintegration Loop series and Machinefabriek’s longer drone pieces such as Allengskens and Flotter. Like DJ Olive’s recent ‘trilogy’ on the Room40 label, au can be enjoyed as a quiet background environment but is just as well suited to loud headphone listening where the cinematic detail can be appreciated. The track has been mastered by the ever-so talented Christopher Leary (of Ochre fame).
The track can be streamed for free, or purchased as a FLAC here – cubus shop

A rather belated New Year message, hope 2009 was grand and that 2010 is a flipping great year to remember. Expect in the next few months some remixes, exclusive new tracks, compilation appearances and after what seems an age – a brand spanking new album too. We now just need some warmer weather 🙂
Sorry, as you were ….
Just over a year ago Rook and Squee from watmm.com came up with the idea of getting users of the site to create a brand new soundtrack to accompany the film Metropolis. Finally after many months Zazen has resurrected the project and is nearly finished. The completed videos have been put up onto the site watmmopolis.blogspot.com and cubus have produced the soundtrack to Part 7 of the film, which can quite handily be seen below:
Apologies for the lack of updates, cubus news should be coming soon …. love you lots.
Over the last few weeks Cryptowen from buzzchurch.com (now hosted on Jeskola’s site) has asked for tracks themed towards the end of the world. An exclusive 14 minute track by cubus features on the first of these compilations in the style of apocalyptic dark ambience. We hope you enjoy !
Apologies, a bit delayed but I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. 2009 could be an interesting year for cubus so we look forward to all your fantastic support over the next few months. New tracks to follow very soon ! Pete.
10 similarities is a 70 minute mix set that I’ve been working on on-and-off for the past year. It mixes together the tracks and artists that have been an influence on more recent cubus tracks (and tracks that I’ve loved in general !). A lot of time has been made to make sure that all the tracks fit together as nicely as possible.
