Mr. Moods – In Love We Trust... And We Hate (DBR004)

Slowdowned relaxed beats

It this real? I mean, some sounds & beats of this great release took me reminding far back to dj krush's best lp (in my humble opinion...) "Ki-Oku"... Flashback!

Sarin Sunday - The Lonely Hike (AH013)

Relaxed moody electronica grooves

Here comes a bunch of very nice tracks from Seth Haley alias Sarin Sunday, released on Archaic Horizon. Very relaxed deep electronica and sometimes classic breaks, sometimes glitchy beats all melted together in best Boards of Canada style. Very classic. Very good. The good old days. 'Expressing a reflection of the past and a direction for the future, The Lonely Hike evokes complex narratives almost purely through sonic compositions.'

 Histeresis - Various artists (FILTRO.020)

Deep, deeper, deepest music

Juchu! Filtro is back, let's talk about deep music...
Release 20 'Histeresis' is a compilation with various filtro artists, a roundview of glitchy electronics, 'a drawn trajectory framing intimist and atmospheric set ups to urban beats, flirting in some moments with an alternative dance floor'... In true filtro tradition digitals meets deep dubs meets IDM meets minimal. In true filtro tradition, the result is brillant. It's a sound of a state between being awake and asleep, deep true feelings, coverted to music which let me fall into deep dreaming, reflecting, thinking and philosophizing. About this world, about what's wrong, what's right, what people should do with their life and, and, and... This is 100% true music. Soundtrack for life. An instant classic. And the best: you can also dance to :-)

Sensual improvised melancholic jazz

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Burning slammer from aerotone, Germany! Bluebridge Quartet from Sweden brings a bunch of wonderful jazz flowers for your delightment! Without doubt, this is one of the greatest net-jazz-releases which ever reached my ear. Perfect mix, perfect music, very warm melancholic moods, played with joy - a must have! Rhythmic structures break loose and get again webbed together handmade with magic using usual suspects as Bass, Guitar, Rhodes, Hammond, Saxophone, Violin and some other instruments grafted with some electronics. Vibrating and enchantig music with the warmth of analog taperecording. What are you waiting fo? Grab this one! Even if you don't like jazz! Be open minded!

chda - Sykli (kyoto rep.)

Deep urban soundscapes

Hmm, tasty deep music... This music comes from an artict named chda from Helsinki, Finnland and it's released on Kyoto Republic. Dark cold unfriendly atmospheres mashed up with perfect downbreak beats and weird sampling work let you step into a world of trippy urbanism. A blend of jazz particles, dark idm and trippy-hop, weaved with dub fragments. Maybe one the best possible soundtracks for a tourist bus-trip through the hinterland of Chernobyl... If you like DJ Vadim/Shadow stuff, this is definitely one yor you...

Christian Björklund - Skåpmat EP  (Phoke41)

Science-fiction adventure game-electronica

Shit, this rocks. Christian Björklund, who produced sound effects and music for Amiga and PC games for several years, drops a fivetracker ep on Phonocake from Dresden, Germany. His style of music is some kind of 'known' but fresh, very smooth, dubby, direct and true, sometimes introverted. Sounds a bit like he could be the next artist playing live on stage in Jabba's (the Hutt) desert fortress on Tatooine. This is wonderful music, check that out! - i'm loving it!

Erik de vahl - Oh! My Spine (Self-released)

Fresh Indie folk-tronics from Sweden

Very complex open-minded electro-acoustic music from Sweden. Crispy micro-rhythms and deep structures colliding with Eric de vahl's guitarplay and singing. Sounds a bit like Karaoke Kalk meets Warp. With this release Eric presents his third CD-album "Oh! My Spine" which he self-released in a limited edition of 100 ex earlier this year in April. His decision to release it finally for free and everyone he describes like this: "Since there won't be no second edition released I've decided to offer you to download it here instead. For free of course. Selling digital files is to me a huge step backwards in every aspect. So feel free spread the music and tell your friends about it if it appeals to you." Very nice!

Hermetic Sound - Melody Scenes (Konfort014)

Science fiction digitronics

And again a release for your digital campfire. It's Hermetic Sound (Javier Urzua, Vincent Velasco) from Mexico on Discos Konfort . This release sound to me like it was beamed to future with a selfmade time-machine. Results are dark, atmospheric sounds and beats damaged by time-travelling. "Sweet and luscious melodies bring light and hope into the dark and claustrophobic ambiances achieved by ruthless complex rhythms and oppressive sounds. This heterogeneous collection of tracks are like snapshots from a sonic journey from shadow into light." And i like it.
