Photonz (One Eyed Jack's / Dissident)
New Murmur album has just landed and it's excellent. I don't know much about him/her/them but it sounds great. It's along similar lines to Deepchord/Echospace, but more focussed, and there's a couple of great downtempo tracks on it as well.
Plus, soon come new album from The Knife. It's all...
It could have been a disaster, but I must commend whoever chose Supermayer to remix Rufus Wainwright. Some will undoutedly find it too cheesy, and I am guilty of harbouring a tearjerker now and again. IMHO late contender for remix of the year.
If you liked the Superpitcher remix of M83 'Don't...
The Gamelan stuff is great. Nice call Zhao. My only problem with it is feeling that I need to undertake some serious study to give it its dues.
Also been checking:
Early Stewart Walker (Stabiles, Live Extracts)
Mono Junk (Kimmo Ripatti) -...
most exciting musical event of the year. bollocks to radiohead.
burial should be on the f*cking honours list. give the man an OBE. please. (as long as it doesn't turn out to be thom yorke in disguise).
Skream. At first I liked the catchiness of MRL etc. Now it just bugs me when someone plays it.
Hot Chip. Maybe I never really liked them but thought they were clever all the same. Now in context they just sound cheap.
In a way yes, though it's also a selfish act in another sense: they have effectively undercut all the other competing albums, knowing that they are established acts who are likely to recoup money on touring, merchandise etc... I think it's very clever, but if it sets a precedent for giving away...
also 'better off this way' and 'party fears (two)' off the same album (sulk). associates are great.
if you're into that kind of avant garde pop sound, also recently discovered mark stewart 'as the veneer of democracy starts to fade', which has 'hypnotized' on it. well worth checking.
ricardo tobar: el sunset (border community)
real corker, quite reminiscent of jackson's m83 'run into flowers' remix, but also 'the sky was pink'. border community must now rank amongst the most consistent and original labels in electronic music.
Saw Hawtin and Villalobos back to back in Fabric 27.11.2004. As the set was coming towards the end at around 6am Hawtin played a 30 minute passage which included one of the most sickeningly good techno tunes I've ever heard. It came shortly after he had played Ron Trent's 'Altered States'. It...
Yes, it was an interesting one. I found it very moving in parts - the young guy who survived his jump trying to reconcile himself with his mental illness for example. I agree that it was very well shot. I don't think it offered much of an insight into the larger questions about suicide, of...
New Pig and Dan album Imagine - good, tr*ncey minimal house in the Cocoon style. See especially Globetrotter for some Orbital inspired action.
Supermayer album - good moments, overall dissapointment, too much noodling ambience.
Chloe album sampler - I like this, also the Matias Aguayo remix...
