Back somewhere between or before DFA1979 and Electro’s burst out of the EU acts like KMFDM, MDFMK, MSI, Chombichrist were best representing Electronic. All very Industrial. And this particular track scored many plays/repeats making it instantly recognizable, an excellent revival choice for Halloween.
Landing just in time after an in depth picking apart of Gramatiks music for the samples that make his music known and loved is this whole free album. Glitch and Mid Tempo tend to shore the sidelines of my weekly or monthly listening. It’s a sample heavy genre capable of incorporating so many other genres, which is a huge reason Electronic is as easy to enter one’s listening repertoire as it is. Chicago’s Manic Focus knows this and has enough taste to do it well. This, his new album contains plenty of Glitch, Trap and many other genres to expand your mind chillingly.
Free new download from Parisian Epic Empire. Expand your Trap game and international know how with ‘Doin It ‘ . The track includes plenty of nice samples in amongst the euphoria inspiring track. DL HERE.
I’ve posted about Nick Moods from Rotterdam before, but he deserves more attention because his music is so incredibly good at what it’s trying to do, which is capture a mood and crystallize it in sound. The track above, Nights On The Roof, could be blasted from any rooftop during one of October’s icy, tumultuous nights, or maybe on a street corner in the rain, with a jazz band accompanying it. You could be listening to this track and missing home, or somebody that you love. I don’t really know how to describe it, which is pretty weak coming from someone who’s supposed to be blogging about music, but I’d like to call that ineffable quality a sign of real talent (I swear that’s a compliment, not a cop-out… really!).
Love is Real was the song that brought Moods to my attention. Doesn’t it kind of just make you feel like… love… is real? #dammit
Point Point is a crew of incredibly talented producers hailing from Paris, France. Through the use of heavily overlaid electronic sound, drum and cymbals, warped vocals and just frankly some kind of witchcraft they create beats to listen to VERY LOUDLY, ON REPEAT, AND FOR MANY MONTHS WITHOUT PAUSE. (In my case, anyway). And get this: they’re all free for download! Enjoy.
Just over a month ago Washington natives Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight – better known as the electronic duo ODESZA – released a full-length album after a year spent touring and gaining traction in the electronic music scene worldwide. Rising to prominence with such tracks as “iPlayYouListen” and “How Did I Get Here”, their first album “Summer’s Gone” captivated with dreamy sound waves, gripping drumbeats, striking vocals and emotionally-provocative instrumentals; an indisputable 2014 favorite.
Vancouver’s got talent. Tremendous FreEP from multi talented Sleepwreck. Right from the home city surfaces an new artist doing solid things. ‘Remember to Remember’ is the standout of the Street Ritual release out just this past month. Look at him, look at them, then follow.
Heard any good Techno lately? Ponder not, just get some in you. Aptly named Detroit Elliot Adamson’s new EP is en route. EDM kids looking to boraden horizons will do well broadening with the teaser. Keep up and look for it.
Very rarely do bands make it past email to post. A sign of the times really. And so often do I find myself speaking of exceptions but the fact is Kitsune has been putting electronic bands into my ear holes for years now. So let’s just all think twice about what we say when we speak of what we listen to.
Misun is out of Washington DC, out of it in good form to boot. They have a album lying in wait for 11/11/14 and this is the title track of the soon to be first full length album of theirs. Check them out and peep game a band for a change.

Break anything mundane your experiencing in life by layer caking it with a Slovakian remix. Kind Deluxe Records just shared signee Ink Midjets new freeizm on their facebook, and, hot damn. One of Wiley’s best after a full on future trill sex change.
Winning is a state of mind.
Usually there is no need to venture near high HIGH pitched vocals, like those hamster songs or whatever they are. It’s like that expression, “I wouldn’t f*ck her with your dick and him pushing.” But when you factor in beloved pop culture, a dreamy intro and a Future Bass hash tag, doors will ajar. Hence the new single from LA based Flow Castle, an artist with a real chill take on What So Not’s ‘Tell Me’ , which you should hear after, then the rest of the catalog. #PeepGameFlowCastle
