After her first release on the ‘Motek Journeys: USA’ compilation as part of duo Slumber, Amber Cox is back with her own EP ‘Electric Lights’. Both original tracks, ‘Electric Lights’ and ‘Heart Of’ are packed full of spacious grooves and warm pad textures. ‘Electric Lights’ with it’s crisp rhythms draw you in around subtle interplay between bass and synth sections and is finished off with mystery in the spoken vocal.
Nobody Home has put his take on ‘Electric Lights’ and delivered an organic production, subtly growing and shaping the audio landscape as it hypnotically develops.
Unisol’s set for Getting Deeper’s 99th number in the podcast series is truly a unique compilation and a one of its kind on GD. Industrial and majestic, this witching hour is a journey into the dark and mysterious world of experimental deep tech, swirling around its own axis and spinning a chilling tumbling dance. It’s mixed perfectly to form a mystical and grandiose aural story.
The talented vinyl only artist Mr. Raoul K gives GD one of its coolest, most eclectic and one of its most beautiful sets till date. The set is a journey of transgression that transports you into another world and time. It is a cinematique play between a timeless, nostalgic past and a distant future. We urge you to open your heart, soul and ears to this set and let it take you on a heady, hypnotic trip.
Futuristic, with a post-rock attitude, ‘Sculptured By Others’ produced by Evident will leave you with a heady trip of chilling, edgy soundscapes. It has a gradually blooming progression of a timeless and hypnotic quality, and is a refreshing change to a lot of music that falls under our radar these days. Definitely a top class track.
‘Sculptured By Others’ is from the EP ‘Tied to something, tied to everything’ and will be released on Soundhitectures on January 18, 2016.
Magazine 131 is a remix compilation of Barnt’s album – Magazine 13’s original release Cherry. There are two remixes included in the album – one by Tale Of Us & Recondite, and the second one by Jens-Uwe Beyer. Both remixes are excellent interpretations of the original 11 minute masterpiece – Cherry.
Cherry is a majestically dark and powerful sound – an extension of the artist’s own personality. It has a strong character, an infectious melody and a twisted vibe that is very intelligently composed. Feels like the sound has come right out of a Kafka novel; it’s dark, twisted and intelligent.
Next comes Magazine 131 with its two remixes, both equally well done. The remix by Tale Of Us and Recondite is softer, more melodic and definitely more surreal. The second remix by Jens-Uwe Beyer is spacey and cinematique with darker undertones.
Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but a must listen for anyone who appreciates intelligent music.
Elektroaktivisten.de couldn’t have chosen a better candidate for an exceptional podcast release this month. Unifono first surprised us with the beautiful track Fliegen.There was something very special in him, and it spoke through that track. Now, after more than a year, Elektroactivisten has made a welcoming appearance in our list of favorite podcasts with this divine set by Unifono.
Futuristic, deep and truly one of its kind, Unifono’s set surpasses and transcends ordinary dimensions. Get ready for a cosmic journey to space and dive into the flipping, winding mechanical world of breakbeat, swirling around its own axis, and spinning a beautiful tumbling dance. Make sure you leave extra room for some spacey synths with a post-rock attitude.
All in all, we encourage you to shut the world out. Enjoy.
Berlin based record label Antime has introduced us to some very interesting and unique artists who are not afraid to test unknown waters to produce a sound that is both different and pleasing. Both Fontarrian and Occupanther have been a recent discovery through Antime, and it has been an interesting and exciting experience to discover their music. Occupanther’s remix of Sissy Fuzz carries a timeless sound that slowly and gradually progresses to more and more intense dimensions. Layer by layer, the track interestingly strings together different soundscapes to produce a sound that matures and takes you higher and higher with it. Absolutely lovely.
Newly released ‘Goddess’ by Chrome Sparks is a synth heavy, melodic track with different tempos under the same note, carefully attached together to create a multi-layered and beautiful experience. A trait that I have observed in Chrome Spark’s music is the fact that his music has a chilling but lovely flow that you can easily get absorbed into. The end result is a ‘chrome’ experience in sound. And by that I mean that if ‘Chrome Sparks,’ in their literal meaning, were to be represented through sound… this would be it. Very nice!
‘Marijuana’ by Chrome Sparks carries a bass heavy sound that is going to blow you away inside out. Cushioning beats are blended with chopped, drifting synths in this one. The end result is a majestic and chilling track with such a great flow that you can dive right into it.
Good evening 🙂 Today we listen to an amazingly fresh track called ‘Ikopol’ by Dauwd from Britain. Break style beats come together with drifting vocals that are wrapped around a sugary coating to produce something that is very, very enjoyable. Underwater beats and bouncing synths enclose a feeling of liberation, innocence and purity in this track. Enjoy 🙂
Just discovered Volor Flex only to know that this is his last album under this alias. ‘Faint Outline’ was released in the album ‘Sabo’ in 2013 under the label Dark Clover. With ‘Faint Outline,’ he adapts the mystic and dark side of garage and glitch. The resulting vibe is of dingy, underground places and night drives. Very, very enjoyable to listen to.
I have said it before and I am saying it again, I love tracks that give you exactly what they seek to mean in their title. ‘Voyage’ by Theatre Of Delays makes you feel like you are traveling through an intangible yet immensely meaningful tunnel. It feels like you are drifting away from where you were before, yet at the same time you are reaching another, more important place. To me, ‘Voyage’ represents an essential journey between two very important chapters – The end of an era and the beginning of a new one. A journey that bridges the gap between those two chapters, one that is far more important than the chapters itself. Slowly and steadily, it takes you deeper and deeper until you reach a point of resolution. Very, very nice.
