This won't be thorough. Busy times.
RXM Reality - Circle
Weird and scuzzy electronic workouts. Fun stuff.
Luke Corbin - CODE377
Different kind of weird, strange and abstract weird.
palta - universel
This one comes from Denmark's Central. It's as melodious and beautiful as you'd expect from the Regelbau and Dekmantel stalwart. Shouts to 2257AD for the tip.
E.Hernandez - Rave In Perpetuity
A live PA recording from a few months back, dedicated to those lost in the fire in Oakland last year. A fitting tribute. RIP.
Der Opium Queen – In The Clouds EP [First Second Label]
Der Opium Queen is the first native producer to release on Irish label First Second Release. It's a silly artist name in my opinion but I'm sure he knows that. The music is bouncy and punchy but still languid and refreshing. Opener 'Entrance To En Trance' is a highlight not least because of its title, while 'No Love Lost' is an MK-style classic jaunt.
Katie Gately ~ winter froze, little toes ~
Katie's been smashing it lately, with a bunch of lengthy pieces going up this week alone. This is possibly my highlight but honestly they've all been great, improvised vocal sessions rendered foggy and mysterious by serious processing. And another great title.
Charles.A.D - バニラスカイ
Lush and tasteful house music. That makes it sound very anaemic doesn't it. It's good!
Intertidal Waters "The Unbearable Weight Of Depression" | VP36
Another one that grabbed me by the title alone. Guess what - it's a long droning swarm of ambient noise that gets you right in the gut.
Cucina Povera - Kaarmellumo
Soft, gentle and spooky sounds from Cucina Povera.
COSMOSNITE - idk what to name this lol (mini-mix)
Super fun mix that's all of about 15 minutes. Gets the people GOING.
Did an A-Z of the year in defiance of arbitrary lists. What could be more arbitrary?
