Every year I become slightly more new age aka my library of nature sounds expands. I found this nice collection of field recordings coming out of New Zealand, if you guys have any links of large collections of nature sounds please share them in the comments below, i’m always looking to buy or add to modest stack of sounds.
And we have lift off, jesus christ that might be the best Bibio song ever made.
R-Zone started as an anonymous trio that release vinyl without labeling who did what. Follow them on Soundcloud if you want to hear a sample of the other 7 releases.
Remixing The Field must be a tough task because its just soo beautiful loop based already but Sonns pulls it off nicely with in and out tones and giving each portion from the original a time to shine.
Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar along with Jamie Lidell cover that oddball Boards Of Canada Midas Touch single.
Midlake: Loving this video and single, I hope this band keeps it together somehow, would be a shame if they quit.
Blonde Redhead: Some serious music as the first single from the new Blonde Redhead. The treatment though touches on Monty Python’s Holy Grail, just sayin’/
Washed Out: I grabbed this from his Instagram, seems to be a few new songs?
Nils Frahm: I know i’m addicted, for those that missed the premiere of this video, I thought i’d post it for you.
Real Lies have grabbed the essence of what I adore about music from England and how do revival of a retro sound.
1:24 and on, I can’t get enough of that wild girl voice. Trust is back and I couldn’t be happier.’Joyland’ will be released by Arts & Crafts on March 4, 2014.
What amazing vibes from the new Tomas Barfod / Nina K. single. Its like a less flashy Little Dragon with pop touch that doesn’t force anything. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
White Rainbow throws out a release here and there on his bandcamp, he’s been veering away from hypnotic which i’m curious to hear the rest of this record will sound like, either way i’m always a fan.
We’ll never stop posting new Lone, its always an inviting listen, you may recognize it from a Rustie mix from 2012.
Titled “Homage (Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.)” this single from Lamin Fofana had me in a trance this morning.
Terekke is true to the deep end of techno/house, he has a few 12″ out, hoping 2014 will be his breakout year.
I’ve been on a Nils Frahm kick over break, just pressing play and letting his whole LP after LP play through, really rewarding listening sessions.
I’ve been addicted to 1 mix this year and its been this on repeat. I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED it for tomorrow morning or just preparing for tonights countdown. Happy New Year ISO50 readers!
For those people that have been on the fence about buying a modular, I think this is that piece that might put you in buying mode.
Intellijel Designs has introduced a new Eurorack synth module, the Atlantis, inspired by the classic Roland SH-101 synthesizer.
The Atlantis is heavily inspired by the architecture and sound of the Roland SH-101, but offers several enhancements:
Triangle core vcos (with far better tracking and Hard sync) instead of saw core
Primary vco has linear FM (not just exp)
MOD Vco can be linked to the primary VCO pitch CV.
Modulation oscillator switchable from LFO to VCO
Filter is multimode, 2/4pole switchable and has a special LP boost mode
Filter allows for selection of inverted ADSR mod source
Filter tracks 1V/oct
Mixer section includes and external source which is normalled to a sinewave
Filter has built in soft clipping
Envelope has looping option, re-trigger and selectable time range
Output VCA has two stage clipping circuit
External clock input for the S&H
Patch points for every synthesis section
