Star Slinger + Darkstar + Moths + Chaim
This Star Slinger track might as well be a Top 40 chart monster, it hits harder than a punch to the neck and has more soul than most of the pop songs out there right now.
I hear that Darkstar might be heading over to Warp Records, I can really appreciate a song like Dear Heartbeat, its raising the bar for bedroom producers, reminds me of a more simplified JDSY song or something tolerable from Her Space Holiday.
Moths seems to be starting off on the right foot by following the footsteps of Four Tet, Gold Panda, Seams, etc. Thanks NAVIS for the tip. Maybe he’ll sign to Moodgadget if he sees this post?
The label BPitch Control has offered some of the best 4/4 records in the past 10 years that blur the line of Club ready / Headphone music with artists like Ellen Allien, Telefon Tel Aviv, Paul Kalkbrenner and many more. With Chaim on their roster they add more of that beautiful techno to their sound kind of like one of favorites Modeselektor’s I Love You:
Anyone know who did the image above? would love to give some credit.

Funny, I posted one of Lee’s paintings from that series on my blog a week or so back. Great job!

Everybody should check out the new Siriusmo LP “Mosaik” on the Modeseltkor label monkeytown records.
It is simply amazing. Complex yet very easy at the same time. Great grooves… :)
