Listen to the last ten ‘tunes of the moment’
The 7th Plain - I Think I Think Too Much
Sat 19 Jan 2019 | permalink
I Think I Think Too Much is one of the more tender, Ambient outings from Luke Slater's recent brace of reissues as The 7th Plain. The two new albums of reissues, Chronicles II and Chronicles III, follow the excellent first compilation from 2016, and play together like a "best of", comprising back catalogue releases (from albums My Yellow Wise Rug and The 4 Cornered Room) along with many rare and unreleased gems.
Posthuman - Once Was
Thu 20 Dec 2018 | permalink
Acid done properly, that's the new Posthuman album Mutant City Acid. And while there's many strong tracks to choose from, Once Was is my pick, with its catchy vocal snippet, and polite nod to early nineties Electronica. If Boards of Canada did Acid, it would sound as blissful as this.
E-Talking - Telephone Rose
Tue 4 Dec 2018 | permalink
E-Talking is French artist Emmanuel Corre, one half of French duo Nummer, and he shares this release on Whities with UK producer Laksa.

Thu 15 Nov 2018 | permalink

Lone - Blue Moon Tree
Fri 2 Nov 2018 | permalink
Lone rounds off his Ambivert Tools EP series with one of his most addictive, catchiest tunes yet.
Ancient Methods - Walking On Cursed Soil (feat. Prurient)
Thu 11 Oct 2018 | permalink
The Jericho Records is one hell of a stomping, cardiac-inducing Techno album from Michael Wollenhaupt aka Ancient Methods and the track Walking On Cursed Soil (feat. Prurient) is one of many highlights.
The Field - Made Of Steel, Made Of Stone
Thu 27 Sep 2018 | permalink
Opening track from the new album Infinite Moment is a beauty. Made Of Steel, Made Of Stone transforms the elements anyone familiar with The Field's previous work will recognise, like the manipulated female vocal loop, and filters them through a kind of Ambient process. And while there's still a steady accompanying rhythm, the result is a monumental slab of dreamy, emotive escapism.
Djedjotronic - Are Friends Electric (feat Lokier)
Mon 17 Sep 2018 | permalink
Paula Temple & Eomac - Gestirn
Sat 25 Aug 2018 | permalink
Gestirn: now this is powerful Techno that both rouses and reassures, leaving a mournful waft of melancholy in its wake. Paula Temple and Eomac join forces for a two track release on Eotrax, due out on 28th September.
Bjarki - 3-1 Tap Lush
Tue 31 Jul 2018 | permalink
Taken from Nina Kraviz’s recent трип label compilation, Don’t You Mess With Cupid, 'Cause Cupid Ain’t Stupid. 3-1 Tap Lush is a wondrous track from Icelander Bjarki. From the press release:
mistuned bells and distressed vocals flurry around cold stabs on a disorienting journey
... which only hints at the magic to behold. Just don't try to tell me Bjarki made this track without the use of recreational drugs.
