Le Mépris - Le Mépris (aer011)

Intimate quite piano compositions

This stunning release on the mighty aerotone label will hold on time. Through all rushing, pushing, hurrying in nowadays life, this music acts like a tender stop of any clocks. Release all redundant and needless brain-activities and calm down completely to this intense look into Reiko Matanes (a female Japanese piano player) intimate thoughts and feelings. Attend her through her wonderful, endogenous and sincere music. Best for these rainy or snowy winter evenings in front of a fireside,,, Fantastic!

RESN - Disfunktion act 2 (hw023)

Downtempo Electronica / IDM from Hungary

Stumbled upon this release from RESN aka Oliver Bajza which is released by Homework - a network label based in Murmansk, Russia. With his very intensive blend of ambient, IDM, electronica, jazz and trippy downtempo beats, RESN forced me to watch to my iPod screen what the hell was playing. He finally got me with his wonderful track 'My number is', an intense and intimate piece of music - deep and mellow, warm like a sunbeam on a cold windy autumn day. These ep simply made me happy and forced me to stop and hold for some minutes... Download this music!

Various artists – 100 (thn100)

deep down with 100

Thinner's back with a deep bang. The eternal label has reached the magic release number 100 and dropped a various artists compilation with many thinner-veterans aboard. And yet every track is deep like a fragment broken from solid primitive rocks. Starting with the slow-moving smart interpretation of classic dub by veer, this release is getting deeper with every track, drifting into more abstract minimalism with Benfay's 'Let me avow', touching the rings of deep-house (check out Brian Kage's floorburner 'Zebes' :-) and finally closing with superb abstract ambiendub by Off The Sky vs. Gyges and deluge. Highly recommended!

Various artists - Let's Talk About Muertepop #2 (muerte009)

Blues electronica

Ok, a bit late, but better late than never. The latest release from the beloved muertepop label from Italy. And they did a very good job and are back with a sinful collection of ten tracks created by artists around the world. From flawless pop like 'Real Air To Use' by Background Radiation over electropop-like music like 'Kids Like Silence' by Silence Is Sexy to the deeper, sometimes experimental side of melancholic electronica with 'Mind Sheep' by Nakao::: and 'Mente', this various artists compilation is a wonderful example for quality independent music in my eyes. The music fits perfect into these colder and darker autumn days - at least here in germany...

Jedidiah Becker from Denver, Colorado released this sentimental and melancholic on Archaic Horizon, who brought us several fine experimental electronica releases, Sarin Sunday for example...
