Colorvision 13 features the work of Luke Wyatt aka Torn Hawk, straight from his slightly deserted youtube account. The channel is full of destroyed and altered VHS gems that might be some of the best alterations i’ve ever seen. Let this one ride out, its perfect all the way to the end.
Probably one of the most melodic albums you’ll hear all year. Bring back IDM but stewing in a bit of lo-fi acid and old Delsin catalog with an amazing use of atmosphere.
I try to catch every Nebraska track that comes out, some of the most visual disco that crosses over to indie rock and deep house easily. I find his approach always seems to come from a genuine knowledge of his sounds history, looking forward to more.
Beef Terminal is a Canadian guitarist that caught my ear via bandcamp, this song grabbed my ear because it was a bit looser than some of the Mark McGuire tracks and the reverb definitely has more space to roam around.
Not sure who the artist is on this but the new age whistling along with a jungle break is such a great combo.
Posted up this mix I did for a house party last week. Happy 4th!
The Verge has a nice piece on the history of the Walkman, which is apparently now 35 years old. I think I became aware of what a Walkman was sometime right before the yellow “Sports” version came out. I never actually owned a real tape Walkman, but had a few of the Minidisc ones and of course some CD players.

Listening through Leon Vynehall’s catalog and mixes I find myself always coming to the point that he understands the organic groove of house music. The second track “This Is The Place” on the Royal Oak release is a perfect example of what separates him from the pack, from chord choices to resonance to stepping into new sequences, the man gets it naturally without relying on trends or replicating what he hears. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
