"UAE-based Bedouin Records appear from nowhere with a hyperpop mirage from Allison Chanic backed by a flighty Lakker remix. The aching, alien vocal timbre and insectoid rhythms of 'Painlessly In Love' feels like a digitally-cured distillation of Ayshay, Autechre and Islaja, given an Enya-gone-techno overhaul by Lakker on the arresting remix version, and the instrumental 'Realm' swirls and keens with a weightless, polrhythmic hip hop shimmy at once reminding of Moon Wiring Club and the recent FAY album. Really class stuff. We look forward to hearing where the label goes next." - Boomkat.com "The self-proclaimed ‘vinyl only imprint based in the dessert’ Bedouin is run by Salem Rashid and operates out of the United Arab Emirates. Distributed by Honest Jons, the first three releases come from Allison Chanic, Imugen Orihasam and Dez Williams. One of the features that sets this label apart is the undeniable allure of the mystique. The attraction of the unknown and the fascination of operating in an obscure far away land however doesn’t detract from the quality of the music. The stand out release for me is BDN 001. ‘Painlessly In Love’ by Allison Chanic is brilliantly composed EP featuring a remix from Lakker. Ominous vocals compliment destructive rhythmic patterns resulting in a dystopian venture in to the electronic avant-garde." - hyponik.com (Friday fives: Independent Record Labels July14 2014) "Do a modicum of research on Allison Chanic and you'll see she's referred to as 'the Queen of Heartache' which is eminently understandable on Painlessly In Love, the first release from Bedouin Records, a vinyl only label 'based in the desert'. It's a bold debut too, with Chanic's cultivated brand of classic instrumentation and electronics forming a chilling backdrop to her immediately striking vocal delivery. Heartbreak has never sounded so compelling! In addition to the two solo productions from Chanic, Bedouin have commissioned Irish duo Lakker to turn in a stunning eleven minute remix of the title track. With material from Dez Williams and Japanese artist Imugem Orihasam on the way, Bedouin looks to be one of the more interesting labels to have surfaced in recent times." - Juno.co.uk "A spectacular curtain-raiser for this imprint 'based in the desert.'  Painlessly In Love is a magnificent, swirling, multi-rhythmic evocation of heartbreak; with a clarified, haunting, motorik remix by Lakker.  The second piece Realm is super-deep funk: a shimmer of alarms, intimacies, starbursts and strangulations, uneasily shot through with kit-drumming. Tiny run, 180g." - Deejay.de "Forthwith threnodial dreamlike instances of a sound garbed in lamentation and introspection; ‘Painlessly In Love’, by Allison Chanic, embodies these qualities in its avant-garde vocals, its fixed tempo of kick drums beating like mallets of temporality in the atemporal cosmos of suppressed hi-hats, dreary pads, and pitched effects. Lakker’s remix treads on similar ground, retaining the vocal hum and complementing it with a heavier kick pattern and hi-hats resonating like smitten anvils, while introducing a rich sci-fi synth line that lingers in the mind pleasantly after listening. ‘Realm’ is as engaging as it is enigmatic, swishing about in a cauldron of disparate sonic ingredients; the constant siren-like sound begets an underlying dread; the various glitching and bursting effects embroider the track with an impressive artificial sheen, which is contrasted by the stereo whispers and spells of organic drumming." - Fenomena Studio, Jason Nikolaidis. "Lakkerリミックス収録!Invisible Cainとしても活動する鬼才Allison Chanicによる新作が、ヴァイナル・オンリー・リリースのニュー・レーベルBedouin Recordsのファースト・シングルとして到着!幻想的な女性ヴォーカル、怪しく響き渡る上モノがトラック全体を支配する、ダークでエクスペリメンタルな独創的なサウンド・スケープが広げられた強烈な内容!更にBサイドには、KillekillやBlue Print、Lazybird、Alphabet Set、Acroplane Recordingsなど活動するアイルランドのIan Mc Donnell & Dara Smithによる次世代ミニマル・ユニットLakkerによる、壮大なディープ・テクノ・リミックスを搭載!音質良好180グラム・ヴァイナル!気になった人はお早めにどうぞ。。。" - Technique.co.jp "大地の薫りがするオーガニックでアブストラクトなトラックに、ミステリアスなウィスパー・ヴォーカルが心地よい、まるでBJORKの再来を思わすA1「Painlessly In Love」、沈み込むようなスロウ・ビートにアブストラクトにちりばめられたハイハット・ノイズ、荒涼としたコードが雰囲気たっぷりのA2「Realm」。Bサイドは、ダブリンの気鋭LAKKERが、ホワイトノイズに抑制された4/4ビート、オーガニックなエレクトリック・シンセのアルペジオ・フレーズが霧のようなフィルターの内部でうごめく、絶品のアンビエント・ハウスへリミックス!コレがめちゃくちゃ素晴らしい出来上がりです。今後の動向も要チェックです。" - Undergroundgallery.jp "LAKKER(BLUEPRINT)リミックスを搭載!!!ヴァイナル・オンリー・レーベルBEDOUINが世に放つ女性アーティスト・ALLISON CHANICによる妖しさ全開のダーク&エクスペリメンタルなアンビエント・ハウス!!! 彼女自身のものかと思われる妖艶なヴォーカルも絶妙に効いており更なる異空間に引きずり込んでいくオリジナルに加え、リミキサーには近年めくめきと頭角を現すアイルランド・ダブリンのユニットLAKKERをフィーチャーしています。 - Diskunion.net "ヴァイナル・オンリーでドープなテクノ、ダブ作品をリリースする新鋭レーベル、Bedouin Recordsから女性アーティスト、Allison Chanicの限定300枚の180g重量盤EPがリリース!Keep Shelly In Athensが暗黒化したようなアンビエント・ダブの「Painlessly In Love」、無重力なスペーシー・ファンクの「Realm」、そしてダブリンの鬼才Lakkerによる「Painlessly In Love」のディープ・テクノ・リミックスを収録!" - Fastcutrecords.com "Not meaning to keep returning to Ghettoville, but there's something to this great new 12" from Swedish artist Allison Chanic that reminds me of that album's ability to hold the attention over extended runtimes using only the most basic of motifs. 'Painlessly In Love' and 'Realm' build upon minimal foundations - each a single looped glimmer of melody-infused static - and above them gradually construct towering edifices of translucent building material, disembodied sung vocals and shutter-shot beats. Both tracks were apparently written following the disintegration of a long relationship, and there's something to their hermetic nature and instability - her voice is heavily processed, cut up or markedly pitchshifted to mask the lyrics and make the music wordless - that suggests a retreat from the outside world into a pre-language protective cocoon of the self, a space for reflection and post-traumatic contemplation. With the music here expansive and affecting, it's a pleasure to be allowed these glimpses into that zone. It's the first time I've come across Chanic's work, though she's been active since the 1990s, both solo and as part of the band Amphex. This is also the first release from the newly founded Bedouin Records. Apparently based in the UAE but distributed in small pressings by Honest Jon's, and with future releases to come from an international roster of musicians, this forms an impressive opening salvo. Dublin techno duo Lakker, who have been on particularly strong form recently (their recent Containing A Thousand for R&S is well worth your time), round out the EP with a foggy, motorik churn of a 'Painlessly In Love' remix cast in lush shades of green and grey, which blossoms with new growth like a desert after a long-overdue rainstorm." - Rory Gibb, The Quietus "Superb opening gambit from UAE-based Bedouin Records. Avant-garde artist and musician Allison Chanic’s soundscapes drift through the netherworld between dark ambient and techno. ‘Realm’ stutters awkwardly through shifting modes, with Chanic’s pained vocals fluttering by. ‘Painlessly In Love’ offers a more straightforward vocal, this time in a timeframe that’s almost trip-hop, if trip-hop were made through demonic synthesisers. Lakker turn in a thrilling mix of the latter track, retaining their bombastic sensibilities yet restraining their heavy beats in favour of Aphex Twin-like atmosphere." - Bleep.com "I’ll end the week with a debut from one Allison Chanic. There doesn’t appear to be much information about the artist behind this lush, seedy, dark electronic music but there’s plenty for you to chew on with three tracks. The remix of the title track by LAKKER bends the once dissonant piece in to this ambient techno soundscape that just gradually turns in to a white wash, which sounds reminiscent of SAW Aphex Twin. “Realm” reminds me of KILN (whom I’ve written about a couple of times on here), if they were to go down a gloomier path – the track is extremely loop-oriented. Honestly, this thing, on the whole, is just hard to nail down. The regular version of “Painlessly In Love” mixes elements of trip-hop, shoegaze and dark ambient… in other words, you really just need to listen to this yourself because I’m not doing this any justice in the description department. Check out the generous previews provided by Bedouin Records on the Soundcloud stream below and see what you think of it. Let’s hope for more from Ms. Chanic in the future. Cheers!" - Cameron Hilliard, Slyvinyl.com "Η πρώτη κυκλοφορία της Bedouin έχει τον τίτλο ‘Painlessly in Love’ και υπεύθυνη για την σύνθεση και παραγωγή είναι η Σουηδέζα Allison Chanic που ίσως είναι γνωστή σε κάποιους λόγω του χαρακτηριστικού συναισθηματικά φορτισμένου χαρακτήρα της μουσικής της. Στα τρία κομμάτια του δίσκου η Allison μας βάζει στο κέντρο της καρδιάς της μιλώντας μας για τον τελευταίο της έρωτα. Αληθινή ή όχι, το μοιρολόι της δεν μπορεί να σε αφήσει ασυγκίνητο, αν δώσεις μια προσοχή στον στίχο και το χρώμα της φωνής της. Το ομώνυμο κομμάτι του 12” είναι μελωδικά συναισθηματικό και περίπλοκο παρ’ όλο που το χτίσιμο του κομματιού είναι γραμμικό. Η μουσική ακολουθεί βήματα trip-hop και σε συνδυασμό με τα φωνητικά θυμίζουν κάτι από Portishead, πηγαίνοντάς μας μερικά χρόνια πίσω σε μια ευαίσθητη σύνθεση. Η φωνή βρίσκεται σε πρώτο πλάνο και εμφανίζεται σε δύο κανάλια, το πρώτο είναι καθαρό ειλικρινές και κοντινό ενώ το δεύτερο είναι επεξεργασμένο και μετρημένο έτσι ώστε σε συνδυασμό να δημιουργούν αυτήν την πλούσια, και ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέρουσα υφή. To Realm, στον ίδιο ρυθμό με το ‘Painlessly in Love’ είναι αρκετά πιο κυκλικό, πιο εμμονικό. Αν κλίσεις τα μάτια σιγά σιγά σε παρασέρνει σε μια δίνη λες και χωρίς να το καταλάβεις λαμβάνεις μέρος σε κάποια ιεροτελεστία που δεν γνωρίζεις που τελειώνει. Dark ambient techno από τα καλύτερα, τα εγκεφαλικά. Ο δίσκος ολοκληρώνεται με το μοναδικό κομμάτι του B-side όπου συναντάμε το remix των Lakker (Blueprint, R&R, Stroboscopic Artefacts). Apocalyptic techno σε πιο γρήγορο ρυθμό, είναι σίγουρα το πιο χορευτικό κομμάτι του δίσκου χωρίς όμως να χάσει την ευαίσθητη χροιά της φωνής της Allison. To δίδυμου από το Δουβλίνο, ξέρει πολύ καλά να βάζει σπίθες στην μπότα και αν το ‘Painlessly in Love’ μας θύμισε Portishead, το remix αυτό θα μας θυμίσει Aphex Twin." - Opn, Paranoiseradio.com "Emergent UAE based imprint Bedouin Records have skillfully woven a somewhat abstract narrative so that a slow-burning anticipation would steadily be summoned after announcing their debut release by Allison Chanic.  Not to put too much spin on the release ‘Painlessly In Love’ explores polrhythmic ambient electronica, interspersed with eerie desparate vocals that is at once ominously intimate and chillingly sequestered; you could perhaps loosely group this alongside the current trend for reimagining 90s alternative maching music, but it would be doing the unique voice this record channels something of a disservice.   The inclusion of the remixby Dublin duo Lakker (who teased fans by including a taster of ‘Painlessly..’ within their own DJ mix for R&S records earlier this year) is also a master stroke, as it effortlessly directs the listeners attention to a host of depth and detail all enigmatically veiled within the original." - Cloudcity, Flexibilia.com "Call us suckers for a good back story, but if someone sends us a 12” saying it’s the first release on their new label which is “based in the desert” and tells us the music is “garbed in lamentation”, then yes, we’re interested. If the music turns out to be amazing – as the ultra-sophisticated electronica of ‘Painlessly in Love’ by Allison Chanic with a lush remix by Irish duo Lakker very definitely is – then so much the better. And if they then follow up by revealing they’ve got four more EPs ready to go over the next couple of months, each packed with equally strange and cerebral but immediate bits of music, then frankly we’re patting ourselves on the back for believing the hype in the first place. Bedouin Records is a vinyl-only label from the United Arab Emirates, run by one Salem Rashid, but appears to be highly internationalist, being distributed by Honest Jon’s and with particular connections with Ireland, Berlin and Japan." - Factmag.com "Painlessly In Love? Sounds like an irreconcilable difference, but the basis of all negotiations? It is said, if love was the A side of the vinyl, than pain was certainly the B side and that calling herself „The Queen Of Hearteache“ today's singer Allison Chanic from The United Arab Emirates must be familiar – painlessly in love with avantgarde electronic music – with the two sides: „Painlessly In Love is a magnificent, swirling, multi-rhythmic evocation of heartbreak; with a clarified, haunting, motorik remix by Lakker. The second piece Realm is super-deep funk: a shimmer of alarms, intimacies, starbursts and strangulations, uneasily shot through with kit-drumming.“ She says – we don't feel pain quoting artists and music reviews, you will have the soothing plaster of all the information we get in our democratic radio - she had a background in classic instruments, such as the piano and violin, and in 1996 switched to the means of computerised music: „Which allowed her to blend in her sound of classic instruments with electronic sounds. She has also been the front figure and lead singer of Swedish/French electronic band “Amphex” since their debut in 2007 and today for the underground electronic experimental band Sam Darko and Klim Roos.“ Others say – some love from the music branch – that the label she started a relationship with Bedouin Records, was a vinyl-only label from the United Arab Emirates, run by one Salem Rashid, but appears to be highly internationalist, being distributed by Honest Jon’s and with particular connections with Ireland, Berlin and Japan: „Acquaint yourself with the United Arab Emirates’ freshest vinyl-only imprint. Call us suckers for a good back story, but if someone sends us a 12” saying it’s the first release on their new label which is “based in the desert” and tells us the music is “garbed in lamentation”, then yes, we’re interested. If the music turns out to be amazing – as the ultra-sophisticated electronica of ‘Painlessly in Love’ by Allison Chanic with a lush remix by Irish duo Lakker very definitely is – then so much the better.“ We'd say, we are interested in giving artists, news and topics exposure in our democratic radio and only in the ones you love as music and media voters. You don't help bands, if you lock them in let's say Pandora's box and keep them away from getting media exposure. There is certainly some truth about that in music: „If you love something set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.“ Tell us what you think about airplay. Are you painlessly in love with her music? You vote, we broadcast!" - Liquid-radio.com "One of the year’s most unusual new labels, Bedouin Records emerged from the United Arab Emirates back in April with Allison Chanic’s Painlessly In Love, a record combining Chanic’s delicate vocals with blasted Arabic-influenced electronic backdrops, and featuring a remix from Irish duo Lakker." - Junodownload.com "Bedouin Records, a new ”vinyl only imprint based in the desert” occupy a similarly dark visual space to Unknown Precept if their debut release is any indication. Allison Chanic’s Painlessly In Love features a finely poised balance of photography and design from Esmat Rabi and Laios Papaxoglou respectively and it will be personally interesting to see how the Bedouin aesthetic develops over it’s subsequent release schedule." - Best Record Sleeves of April, 2014. Junodownload.com "L’homme est ainsi un habitué des labels inclassables qui vont puiser leurs pépites en creusant dans différents chemins. Sa signature sur le jeune label venu du désert (Émirats Arabes Unis) Bedouin Records, aux côtés d’Allison Chanic, Dez Williams ou encore Crust, n’a donc pas grand chose d’étonnant, mais n’en demeure pas moins savoureuse." - Laure Duflos, Seeksicksound.com "A spectacular curtain-raiser from this imprint ‘based in the desert.’  Painlessly In Love is a magnificent, swirling, multi-rhythmic evocation of heartbreak; with a clarified, haunting, motorik remix by Lakker.  The second piece Realm is super-deep funk: a shimmer of alarms, intimacies, starbursts and strangulations, uneasily shot through with kit-drumming. Tiny run." - Honest Jon's Records
