EQD - Equalized #006
Fri 21 Jul 2017 | permalink
René Pawlowitz returns under his EQD guise with Equalized #006, a rugged track with a bouncy earworm vibe.
Four Tet - Two Thousand And Seventeen
Wed 5 Jul 2017 | permalink
Kieran Hebden returns as Four Tet with a new track that harks back to his Pause / Rounds period where he favoured hip-hop beats and melody. It's great!
Shinichi Atobe - Regret
Mon 26 Jun 2017 | permalink
The Japanese producer Shinichi Atobe continues his mesmerising form with new album From The Heart, It's A Start, A Work Of Art — Pitchfork have some interesting background information about the release, check it out.
Opening track Regret is simply beautiful.
From The Heart, It's A Start, A Work Of Art is out now on DDS.
Ozel AB - Red Wet
Mon 19 Jun 2017 | permalink
Difficult to pick which one of these tunes deserves "Tune of the moment" as they're all superb, but I opted for Red Wet initially for the catchy-as-hell vocal sample snippet that starts things off, but the underlying beat is addictive while the layers of percussion build and fold into the blossoming melodies. Absolutely superb.
Taken from the Hogtown EP, out now on Lobster Theremin.
Slam - Age Of Intolerance
Tue 6 Jun 2017 | permalink
Age of Intolerence is the title track from Slam's new EP, and it's sublime, even if it sounds a bit like Aphex Twin's Heliosphan. Great title as well, it truly sums up the world we're living in right now.
Shanti Celeste - Make Time
Wed 31 May 2017 | permalink
According to her Discogs page, Make Time is the twelfth single from Shanti Celeste... I've missed a few it seems! From what I have heard though (Alma, Days Like This and Being) I know she's a considerable talent and probably underrated too. Well, lets hope that the blissful beats on this new two tracker help to lift her profile a little higher. Both tracks are superb.
Listen to Make Time
and check out Thoughts
I like this from the press release:
warm, heartfelt dance music that kicks where it counts
Album soon hopefully.
Ellen Allien - Mind Journey
Wed 17 May 2017 | permalink
The album from which it comes is called Nost, short for nostalgia, and there's no denying that Mind Journey by Ellen Allien holds a certain retrospective vibe. Techno at its best.
Cassegrain - Trappist (The Mover remix)
Sun 7 May 2017 | permalink
Arcing Seas, aka Cassegrain, is back with ARCS-03, the third release in the short-lived label, a three-track EP of selected tracks from the first two releases, remixed by The Mover, Peder Mannerfelt and Shifted. All three tracks are great, but The Mover's contirbution is excellent.
Biosphere - Black Mesa
Tue 25 Apr 2017 | permalink
With hints of early Aphex Twin, Black Mesa is the first single from Biosphere's forthcoming mini-album The Petrified Forest and features the voice of American actress Joan Lorring taken from an episode of The Twilight Zone.
