This is an awesome video infographic about the computer virus Stuxnet. It was created by Patrick Clair, a motion designer from Australia. I’m not sure which was more captivating for me, the visuals or the information. From a design perspective, this is gorgeous, but it’s also a fascinating description of Stuxnet, the first “open source weapon.”
For of those you who follow Mux Mool know this EP has been coming, Mux shared the EP at a low quality for free awhile back but now its back from the mastering studio and include a new cut which is my favorite called Flying Dreams.
We get a taste of some more of that Memory Tapes record that is coming out on Carpark with this new video that premiered today, see below.
Anyone else found the last Balam Acab EP addicting? I play it all the time, its a great go to if nothing sounds good in your music collection.
One of the first Broker / Dealer tracks ever just got re-issued on Kompakt last month, super deep cut and very hypnotic, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I can smell a Bloodsport soundtrack sample a mile away, let me know if you notice it in the synths or I might be crazy. Nothing bad, I actually love this song soo soo much, disco set essential.
Since I posted the Worst Friends Mix a few days ago i’ve been checking up each release and grabbing up certain tracks from them, I found this gem from the Onra & Quetzal album, that thing has like 30+ tracks!
I want to get my hands on the Clams Casino EP but no sign of it yet just mixtapes, been in love with this one which features Squadda B, I wish I was friends with Squadda B so I could just yell: “Squadda Beeee! if your in the kitchen would you mind bringing me a beer?”
Once in a while I look for new cuts from Todd Terje and Pilooski, this new find Snooze 4 Love is soo bubbly and easy to take in, enjoy.
Also, in other news my younger sister Martyna Alexander who’s mostly an illustrator and the talent of the family did this cute 30 second short of a chubby rabbit delivering a note that i’m obsessed with, its sitting over an old BoC track called Close4, adorable right? i’m IN LOVE with drawings 3 which his face shows such good embarrassment and 5, look how proud he is.
A huge influence and always puts me back into what mood I truly want to be in is Delsin Records, i’ve featured plenty from their catalog on the blog. Their understanding of atmosphere meets house makes me always rethink mixes/dj sets/song selections because their selections are so spot on, this Vince Watson cut is the right about of Jazz but isn’t house but its definitely electronic, in love.
I really didn’t like Diamond Rings, I heard 2 or 3 songs and it didn’t fit with me but when I heard this song yesterday it completely grabbed me, more or this. He actually sings pretty nice in this one, I like when soft amount of piano comes in.
I always check out the free mp3 iTunes is giving away, hell I need to give popular music a chance in some way. I was happy to hear some of that UK disco pop influence in this one by Metronomy, pretty solid I must say.
“Misery loves company” every time I put on a Grouper song that quote pops into my head.
A taste of the new Neon Indian record, i’m definitely geeked after hearing this:
Betty Wants In crafted this very unique skydiving video using a GoPro. It’s exceptionally peaceful; it makes skydivers look more like they’re floating gracefully underwater as opposed to plummeting through the windy stratosphere on their way toward terminal-velocity.
I’ve never used a GoPro, or gone skydiving for that matter, and now I really want to experience both. Mission accomplished Melbourne Skydive Centre.
I’m heading to NYC to check out F5 fest this week. It runs from April 15-16th and features presentations from various speakers. The whole thing is put on by the people from Motionographer so it certainly won’t disappoint. I was able to check it out in ’09 and was pretty blown away by the presentations, can’t wait to see what’s in store this time around. Hope to see you out there.
