Lovely organic track and first single from the upcoming album by my oversexed cousin in Congo. His stuff is usually more triphop and breakbeat, but if this sets the tone for his album, I can’t wait to hear the rest of it.
The awesome and trippy video is done by Cyriak.
If the world was actually coming to an end, i’d want this playing in the background.. Presumably one of Aphex Twins best works. A sad, yet hopeful melody with a beautiful sound by someone who at that point in time was one of the very few electronic musicians who was able to put this much emotion in his productions.
Tuesday Born is the project by one half of the UK based Afro influenced electronic music couple ‘The Busy Twist’. This titletrack, which means “Thuesday Born” in Ghanese, is inspired by a 6 month trip the Londener made to Ghana. Tune has an amazing vibe and sounds modern with its electronic sounds and compact production, but it seems completely build on traditional patterns and melodies.
Big tune for your favorite music blogging primate, who has had some server issues, a broken modem and other tribulations the past week and is still recovering from a cold.
Matthew Herbert does what he does best, use weird and unconventional sounds, re-arange them manically and precisely, to come to something that sounds… real.
Kristjan send me another one of his awesome mixtapes and this time he really brings some heat to the table with a fine selection of jazz, deep disco, electronica, house and deep house. You can hear Shooma Drop live mixes at Mixed In, every Wednesday at 22:00 GMT. You can find the tracklist at Shooma’s mixcloud.
New LP by Daphni (aka Caribou aka Dan Snaith aka my favorite science teacher) on his own label. It features some already released tracks and some new (ish) tracks.
As per usual, everything sounds extremely playful, wonky and analogue. But despite the somewhat experimental nature of many of his tracks, they remain to be very proper dancefloor material. I’ve been meaning to post the in 2011 released single “ye ye” forever, because its def one of my fav tunes to play, so this is a good opportunity.
With the winter coming up, its time to prepare for hibernation again, the last time I surrounded myself with dark, deep and moody techno tracks, this year I need something a little more gentle.
Like this mindblowing piece of electronic music. Great detailed sound and beautiful vibes from the 21 year old Londoner who takes on ‘Life Size Ghosts’ by the also very interesting electronic Folk group Mt. Wolf. The track is part of Catching Flies’ Debut EP ‘The stars’ which features 4 unique tracks with the same quality and crisp.
The EP is available for free at Catching Flies’ own site.
And another dope tune from the EP:
