2016 will see the release on Carpe Sonum Records of the factory-pressed cd "Biomechanical" by Airwaves, aka the sadly deceased Oskar Menzel from Mexico.

The label just published an “upcoming releases sampler” which includes an Airwave track from the forthcoming album:

for those interested, please find the promotional text accompanying Airwaves "Biomechanical" out now on Carpe Sonum:

The late Mexican electronic musician Oscar Menzel, aka Airwaves, only realized a small handful of recordings in his short lifetime (including one under the alias 29), but the two Airwaves discs issued on the Opcion Sonica label back in the mid 90s remain one of the many undiscovered gems scattered across the vast graveyard of obscure, one-off electronic music projects and recordings. Released during the era when musicians the world over were firing up banks of synthesizers to inaugurate their own take on the ambient subgenre, Menzel's cosmic creations took the stuff of legend (Eno, Tangerine Dream, Schulze, Namlook, and a gaggle of others) and recontextualized them via sonic easels adorned with fresh daubs of paint. This resulted in such sparklingly effective concoctions as the two-part shimmer festivities of "Biomechanical", the gorgeous starshine twinkle of "A Little Twilight Moment", and the Steve Roachian broadbase expanse of "Sunset Mists Distant Peak"; in short, an exploration of tones and timbres that sounded strangely familiar yet still eerily unplaceable. Menzel's fire burned but for a brief time, but electronic music aficionados can rejoice that his art exists to further illuminate the planet.

The album is can be ordered directly through www.carpesonum.bandcamp.com but is also distributed worldwide through Darla (www.darla.com).
DataBloem also has the release in their catalogue.
