CS549854-01A-BIG

Polish DJ/production duo Ptaki (which means birds in Polish) flew into discerning listeners radars like a full on flock sometimes registers on an air traffic controllers screen awhile back with a ripping 7″ on the Very Polish Cut-Outs label a few years back. “Krystina” is a laid back groover that by edit standards stands out as a shimmering example of what a savvy editor can do …

Local producer/DJ/allaroundraddude Diego Herrera wears a grip of hats. The dublab DJ is a lynchpin in Pharoahs, produces wavy House as Suzanne Kraft and is set to release a brand new heater of a 12″ under the name Dude Energy.
The 2nd release on producer Tornado Wallace’s Animals Dancing label, Dude Energy finds Herrera flexing slightly less ambient muscle and with overtly chuggy intention. The 3 …

If you ever happen to catch my show on Saturday nights, you’re probably aware of my long-standing admiration for legendary UK DJ, half of ….Wizard’s Sleeve and Phantasy label boss Erol Alkan.
His influence on my ears is undeniable.
His penchant for looking for (and finding) the place where dreamy psychedelia and dark teeth grinding bangers meet is a next level gift and something I can only keep aspiring to do.
Although …

New Music From Warp Favorite Clark: “Unfurla”

Christopher Clark is a long time personal favorite of mine.
His releases all occupy a perfectly comfortable space on the shelf with any and all of Warp Records’ finest.
Clark splits the difference between all of the labels’ elder statesmen and has carved out his very own style. The stark, clean productionof  Autechre, chaotic, polyphonic atmospherics of Aphex, soulful, moody introspection of Boards of Canada, Plaid’s pretty playfulness.
Clark does …

The Black Madonna: Artist You Should Know

Posted September 4, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 1,253 views]
blackmadonna

As aliases go, I can’t quite think of a better, more awesome name than The Black Madonna.
Evocative in a dozen different ways, it befits Chicago DJ/Producer Marea Stamper.
Apart from being that rarest of mythical creatures, “a woman DJ/producer” she also just actually happens to do it better than most (regardless of gender.) Her style rips through a whole spectrum of sounds from disco to techno to house with …

richard_norris_freaks_ep_600

Leftfield UK dance stalwart Richard Norris has been in the game since the early days of Acid House, but unlike his peers Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan, Norris has maintained (and seemingly purposefully fostered) an air of relative anonymity.
The driving force behind The Grid, The Time & Space Machine and as half of Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (his collaborative project with Alkan) Norris has …

Seekae – Test & Recognise (Flume Re-work)
In a fairly short period of time, Australian beatmaker Flume has established himself as one of the most consistently exciting artists in electronic music.
I was already a fan of his work, but seeing Flume’s energetic live set at FYF Fest last year made me a true believer.
There’s definitely a “Flume sound” but it’s a spectrum: he can lay …
