CFCF has a monopoly on engaging clean repetitive music, this new single proves that.
I’m always impressed with DJ Koze’s direction on a remix, always far out editing and always puts in an honest effort of making something special.
This new single from DJs Pareja & Philipp Gorbachev from the Comeme crew is out of this world, its this fusion of culture that is still raw and fresh feel, i’m getting Germany tropical acid vibes, thats pretty impressive to pull off.
Mount Kimbie is rolling out remixers for their LP, this one from Detroit’s Kyle Hall touches on some great thinned out house essentials.
Architecture of Density by German photographer Michael Wolf, is a series documenting mega housing structures in the densely populated city of Hong Kong.

Autumnal days feel exceptionally short in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. The sun rises but hardly invites. The inevitability of night is impending. As 2012 came to a close, Teen Daze entered a state of repose. He wrote new material, and for the first time he found the process not to be a means of escape or refuge. Rather than imagining an outward utopia, or seeking an inward sanctuary, he simply engaged his work with his reality, his physical world. Like it’s namesake, Glacier is more than solidified water adrift in a sea of home-produced electronic music. It is a collection of moments, historical particles and physical experiences, gathered into a whole. Varied yet cohesive, Glacier finds Jamison confident both as a drifter and a romantic. Lyrics are used personally and sparingly, often drifting in and out on a single phrase. “No one sees you, the way I see you”, he repeats through opener “Alaska”. Album centerpiece “Ice On The Windowsill” celebrates the notion of remaining indoors with the one you love as the world frosts over. Connecting each epiphany are wordless ruminations—like the twisted pitch of“Tundra”, the cool warmth of “Forest At Dawn”—some of the most evocative sound design in Teen Daze’s career to date. The album’s fixation on manifesting physicality translates to being a highly performative production. The role of live instruments, field recordings, and general human presence is evident in these songs. This was a deliberate choice; Teen Daze plans to tour in support of the release for the first time as a full band—essentially to actualize Glacier in the physical world.
We’ve truly entered an exiting era of new “user experiences” and no front is exempt. From web and mobile platforms, art installations, to film and video games, there seems to be a sense that no frontier is unreachable and what one day seemed impossible, has been surpassed beyond our wildest dreams, forever altering our perception on whats “real”. Enter Box.
Box is a live performance film by Bot & Dolly, that documents a first ever live synchronized performance using 3D Projection Mapping, Robots and Actors:
Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.

Ladies and gentlemen we have album of the year potential going on right above this text. I love how he keeps his sounds always in motion, shifting through different emotional connections you might have made with certain melodies.
Earlier this month we released the title track of The Field’s upcoming album Cupid’s Head, and we would like to say thanks to everyone who’s shown their support and the positive response we’ve received thus far;
“Back in 2007, he introduced From Here We Go Sublime with “Over the Ice”; on “Cupid’s Head”, Willner’s going through the smoke.”
“The album is his first to be recorded entirely using ‘real’ gear – no computers in sight kids – and you can certainly hear that in ‘Cupid’s Head’s shimmering textures and brittle beatbox beats.”
Now, as a pre weekend treat, and a few days before its official release on September 30th
TMMRW must have just perfected the future of New Age.
Absolutely Free comes to us from all different angles, can’t really put this in a genre, feels like Her Space Holiday remixes chained together, not feeling the screaming but i’ll sit through it for the other parts.
If you’re playing GTA V then i’m guessing you’ve heard the new Clams Casino?
100% Silk has been orchestrating the soft late night house from a distance to the point of perfection, such a solid label, here’s one from a recent signing Les Level.
Shaun Kardinal embroiders everything from vintage postcards to books. I alway love looking through vintage postcards but i’ve never really done anything with them besides put them away in a box, glad someone is getting a little creative and reworking them into something that isn’t a cut up collage for the first time in the 21st century.
If you asked me who i’d like to make music with that isn’t a legend of some sort i’d say Juana Molina, she has a great way of finding out what sounds good on repeat, I find that as one of the most important gifts in making any sort of noise.
The Beat Broker is always on the ISO50 blog, this jam feels like it was made for the blog, heavy melancholia that sits right outside the atmosphere and sketches across into your peripheral vision coloring it in with only the most lush experience.
Machinedrum has this tweaked out speedy dance music on autopilot, he delivers every time these days.
Cascine holding down that soft spot in our hearts, always finding those artists that deliver bliss and Ditt Inre isn’t any different.
