W’eve posted a few songs of Kelpe’s in the past on the blog, a real talent, always unique when it comes to his detail, this song in the second half kind of sounds like he’s playing a few dying toy instruments but its still really good. His new LP seems to be reaching a diverse audience, I wish him luck, he deserves it.
With all this cold coming thru, I just needed to hear Summertime(an edit of it) one last time before I descend into ambient/shoegaze-ville
I can’t find much about Joy Orbison, I only see an EP under his belt but he sounds promising, reminds me of a less gltichy Machinedrum, hope to hear more.
I went to see SV4 dj the other night, he dropped this Stimming track that made me become pretty rude, you know when you’re in a conversation with someone and you stop looking at them and go interrupt the DJ and ask him what he’s playing, pretty rude but well worth finding out what this song was.
Kelpe might have made of my favorite 1+ minute intros to a song with the beginning of Cut It Upwards. It has hints of Four Tet and early Manitoba(aka Caribou) to the point that I think he was almost trying to replicate their sound, either way the track came out great with quality samples.
Tom Croose comes out with his first remix of one of his own songs as Worst Friends, the song will be out today on an EP with additional remixes by Shigeto and Bostro Pasopeo. Tom will be djing in San Francisco this Tuesday, you should definitely swing by and say hello if you’re in the area.
I’m sure Der Zyklus gets plenty of comparisons to Kraftwerk, I swear i’ve heard this with an Erlend Oye acapella over it years ago but I could be dreaming that up. Such a gentle track, if Tron ever made a snow globe as a promo item this song should be the midi song that plays while neon and black glitter swirled around.
Fred Falke doesn’t do many remixes that aren’t nearly perfect for playing out on the weekend, this remix for Hot Chip could be one of the best remixes they will ever get.
Kelpe – Cut It Upwards
Worst Friends – AG (Tom Croose Innerspace Ski Boot Mix)
For some of you that don’t know Bleep is the digital retail store for the label Warp Records that carries specific labels and artists that they hand select. They just released a great compilation called “Showcase Vol. 1″ and here’s the best part: its only 1£ or $2(USD) for all 11 songs! So I went ahead and picked 4 of the songs that i’d alone just pay a buck each for, don’t worry there isn’t ever going to be a pack rat issue in your iTunes so just pick it up.
When has Bibio ever wronged us on this blog? never has and never will, the man honestly makes some of the most gorgeous originals and remixes and this one is no different than the rest. Just think maybe we can get him to do a Tycho remix?!
I have a feeling i’ve already post this Bullion song but it was unmastered or ripped from vinyl and muffled. If you haven’t heard of Bullion then you should know that he kills it by mashing up Beach Boys and J Dilla.
Om Unit reminds me of the classic Aphex Twin track Didgeridoo but just a great edit in 2009, if you can get into this you’re definitely a friend in my book.
Kelpe does that sound that I still don’t how to make because I just feel too white, its that sound if I had to show you visually it would look like im playing with a Jacob’s Ladder toy and its getting stuck once in a while in its own ropes.
