Psychonaught - Geordie Stepper Vol.1 (Sociopath 051)

Dubstep from Newcastle

Deep groovy Dubstep isn't a great genre for netaudio in general. So it was very delightful to stumble upon this really good and well produced Dubstep from Psychonaught from Newcastle, GB. HIs release is called Geordie Stepper Vol.1 and was released by Sociopathrecordings , a netlabel from taiwan with a mostly crazy, noisy and fast output. Geordie Stepper Vol.1 contains 8 deep bleepy dubstep tracks ready to rock the floor. Try it!

Normaa - Fake Media (FPR014)

Experimental downbeat IDM

After a first album under the name " Normablock " to the French netlabel Signal Zero and a net ep to the German netlabel Jahtari, Normaa aka Eduardo Acosta is back with this release on FPR. The album is named FAKE MEDIA, "the result of the manipulated media, the current conflicts, the forgotten wars, poverty, and the dignity of the occupated lands and exploted countries. A travel between dub and IDM, exploring vocals and melodies, smooth and pain, red tears and dark hope. The digital drama and the war against wrong system and skills." Sounds kind like a contemporary electronic version of World-Music. The extraordinary blend of deep pads and strings, fragmented (arabic) vocals and abrupt beatworks sounds very new and fresh!

Protestant Work Ethic - Turned, and Turning EP (12rec045)

Singer Songwriter

Happy new 2008! Her comes the first 12rec release in this new year --- Protestant Work Ethic - Turned, and Turning EP. Protestant Work Ethic is Simon Usaty, one quarter of KES (alongside Bernard Bauch ) from Vienna, Austria. For his solo-project he only worked out great songs with acoustic guitar, banjo, cymes, accordion and little background percussion. But the main element in his songs for sure is his voice. I heard his voice the first time here and i can say that he's a great vocalist and singer. 'His voice has a certain moment of failure, still he's an awesome vocalist, on stage and on his recordings...'. With this release he steps into the independent Country & Western genre and although this is not my favourite music style i like this release a lot. It's warm, personal, a bit melancholy pop music with absolute hit potential.
