Principles of Geometry: Artist You Should Know

Posted April 22, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 370 views]
140407-Principles-of-Geometry

“Behind the simplest things lie the deepest feelings.”
This is the motto behind French electronic duo Principles of Geometry’s latest aural salvo, “Meanstream“.
Following a trilogy of haunting full length releases that ended with 2012′s excellent, “Burn the Land and Boil the Oceans”, the mysterious duo ducked into the darkness of the studio for almost 2 years dreaming up their next gloriously trippy album for Joakim’s Tigersushi label.
A longtime …

Not-Waving

Alessio Natalizia of UK duo WALLS has taken that project’s penchant for ambient melodic vibes and is exploring a more cinematic, experimental sound called Not Waving.
After a Sonic Boom produced debut called “Umwelt”, Not Waving has released a string of EPs which have been combined with unreleased material by the always reliable Emotional Response label.
“Human Capabilities” is a stunning collection of tracks that range from the …

james tillman

It’s been quite a while since I wrote something on our great blog
A few artists made me want to write something and I’d email blog editor Rachel to say “I am writing something for you”… then nothing.
Then something, someone… And I am now writing this to you.
I heard that something, that someone yesterday on the Soundcloud machine.
That someone is James Tillman. He is based …

Luke Vibert: Artist You Should Know

Posted April 11, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 771 views]
luke_1_5115890783

For an artist as prolific and consistently phenomenal, Luke Vibert is criminally overlooked.
From Cornwall, like electronic music’s late 20th Century ultimate enigma and potentially most lauded and (dare I say) important figure Aphex Twin, Vibert is a bona fide genius who makes everything from Ambient to Acid to Disco to Techno to alternative Hip-Hop/Trip-Hop with ruthless aplomb under over half a dozen aliases.
Since the late 90s, …

Dauwd: Artist You Should Know

N6xl6Fwgmnlc-original

After a couple of  releases for Ghostly and remixes for Kompakt, London-based producer Dauwd, has just released his first EP for the Cologne-based dance music titan.
The “Kindlinn“EP sees the newcomer making a rather compelling shift from the UK sound he’s originally become known for and reinventing himself as a virtuoso of propelling house and romantic techno.
The title cut “Kindlinn” is a stunner that brilliantly echoes Matthew Dear’s groove, but has …

Vermont: Artist You Should Know

Posted April 4, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,101 views]
140115-Vermont-Kompakt

Tapping into the sublime (subliminal?) qualities of their craft as designers of ecstatic dancefloor bangers, Innervisions’ Marcus Worgull and Danilo Plessow (aka Motor City Drum Ensemble) have joined forces to create something that seemingly flies in the face of their identities; calm meditative New Age synthscapes that are equal parts post-Kraut Cosmiche, Yellow Magic Orchestra and 90s chillout.
SO INTOIT.
The collaborative project, called Vermont, is the product of a decidedly informal …

Panama: Artist You Should Know

panama ep

Sometimes when you want to dance, you want to get in that rather serious uninterruptible eyes closed zone, just feeling the beats and riding the waves with a giant crowd around you
Most of the time when I want to dance, I want joyous perma-smile music that makes me feel like I’m celebrating life.
A perfect pop/electronica hybrid made for maximum fun.
There’s been a lot of …

Archie Pelago: Artist You Should Know

Posted March 24, 2014 by | 3 Comments | 1,190 views]
SaturnV-SC1

Brooklyn trio Archie Pelago are unto something very next level. Multidimensional, even.
The jazz trio composed of multi-talented, classically trained dudes Hirshi, Cosmo D and Kroba have taken Nico Jaar’s heady, atmospheric House and added equal parts slo-mo chill Balearic Island vibes and layers of woozy brass.
For their recent, incredibly lush single, “Saturn V” they created an inhabitable “video game” (like Myst) where you as the user/listener are granted a digital body that interacts with the space …

josef salvat

He’s released a grand total of three songs in his career on a tiny label based out of the UK so, if you don’t know who Josef Salvat is, I’ll totally give you a pass. For now.
By this time next time year, though, there’s a pretty good chance that everyone you know, including your mother will know the name Josef Salvat.
I know, I know, …

SXSW Preview: Sweet Baboo

Posted March 11, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 918 views]
baboo

If you are truly taking SXSW at its best, you should be seeing at least a few bands that you’ve never (or just barely) heard of.
Austin makes this easy, as you can stumble from performance to performance in a matter of a few dozen steps.  So if you find yourself in the vicinity of a guy named Sweet Baboo, do yourself a favor and …
