Fresh from the land of the rising sun and emerging from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo comes Sunshine Lover.
Just over two years ago he started his journey experimenting with Modular Synthesizers, and for his Data Cult debut he has compiled some of his favorite aural experiments for your listening pleasure.

Ipnoteca is an Italian born electronic musician base in Tokyo with a true passion for analogue gear, strange sounds, patch cables and blinking lights.
During his 20+ years of personal music and sound research, Ipnoteca has discovered modular synthesizers to be the perfect instruments to create the characteristics of his sound, which ranges from IDM to ambient to glitch music.
His system is composed of various modules, and is mainly comprised of modules by Intellijel Design, Make Noise, Mutable Instruments, Industrial Music Electronics (formerly Harvestman) and Noise Engineering.
Since moving to Tokyo Ipnoteca has had the chance to become a regular performer, and play various shows, clubs and modular events such as Modular Cafè, Cave, TFoM 2015 and Dommune. He is currently working on various sound design projects for emerging visual artists and a cassette album that will be released in early 2018.
Beginning fresh somewhere late in 2016, Lithe is the pet solo project of Alice Blunt, and is a mixture of introspective feelings and fuzzy memories of transient sensations.
She takes influence from bangy UK techno acts, and the hedonistic shadowy parts of the Berlin techno scene with the occasional nod to trippy ambient and IDM sonic magic.
She primarily uses a mixture of modular and desktop hardware, with frequent use of sample mangling for percussion, texture and rhythm.
