Listen to the last ten ‘tunes of the moment’
Wnimanie - Locura Harmonica
Fri 29 Sep 2017 | permalink
Wnimanie is Russian for "attention" and the debut EP from this young experimental Russian producer certainly demands it. Inspired from all angles, from Pink Floyd to Techno, Eindringlinge ventures into far-reaching territories, with a mish-mash of styles. There's ear-puncturing bass on opening track First Take, delightful acid bleeping on Locura Harmonica, a blend of Ambient and processed guitar on Eindringlinge and some wacked-out strings on Violin Jam.
Released by Firering, the fledgling label run by Åmnfx, their innovative approach involves recycling cassettes, adding an authentic layer of real life to the music. Eindringlinge comes with a folding booklet/poster made by London based graphic artist Emma Volodchinskaya.
Antwoord - Don't Go
Wed 20 Sep 2017 | permalink
I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of Antwoord but when there's a stunning visual narrative attached to some otherwise derivative music, I'm happy to listen again.
Skee Mask - Routine
Thu 7 Sep 2017 | permalink
The anonymous German producer follows up his recent 2012 EP with a new four-tracker as part of his Ilian Skee series. Called ISS002 it features four sublime cuts that perfectly combine his core range of rolling rhythms and electronic soundscapes. Routine is a thing of rare beauty.
Dave Clarke - Charcoal Eyes (Glass Tears) feat Mark Lanegan
Wed 30 Aug 2017 | permalink
Featuring a bunch of guest vocalists including Louisahhh, Mt. Sims and Mark Lanegan, the album apparently contains little in the way of Techno! But if Charcoal Eyes (Glass Tears) featuring the gravelly intonations of ex-Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan is anything to go by, everything will be fine.
The album is due for release on 27th October.
- Is Vic There? (feat. Louisahhh)
- Frisson (feat. Mt. Sims)
- Dot Forty One (Mute)
- Charcoal Eyes (Glass Tears) (feat. Mark Lanegan)
- Monochrome Sun (feat. Mark Lanegan)
- Cover Up My Eyes (feat. Gazelle Twin)
- I'm Not Afraid (feat. Anika)
- Death of Pythagoras
Bullion - Blue Pedro

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.
