“The prolific as ever Zach Bridier is back on Mahorka with his main genre-merging and style-hopping electronic music project Captive Portal with another 5 track EP! This time around, it’s guitar based music in a shoegaze-like style. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. Gazing at shoes is not obligatory. And, this time around, the EP comes also as a very limited edition cassette co-release with Zach’s own DBD Tapes.” – Mahorka

Description:
“Fifteen years after the landmark Mahorka compilation “Music For Elevators vol.1” and, now, six years after the latest volume 4, for the occassion of Netlabel Day 2017, we proudly present “Music For Elevators vol.5 (part 1)”. Again, you are on board for a pushing all kinds of boundaries trip through what ambient music can be and what can be ambient music. And this time, as the title suggests, we will have more than one album. We blame this on the number of great and artists from around the spectrum collaborating with Mahorka and the number of years between the last installment and the moment vol.5 felt ripe and right to start materialising.” – Mahorka
