In a time where the devaluation of music seems to be at it’s peak, fans and audiences expect every release to be either for free or donation based, which forces musicians to tour extensively or resort to day jobs in order to support themselves. Deru, an electronic artist who questions this establishment, explores an innovative release of his latest album, 1979. His approach influences listeners to place themselves in an appropriate listening environment, delivering an entirely new experience.
To help him with his vision, Deru enlisted a team of people including the visual artist, Effixx, who collaborated previously on the Outliers, Iceland: Vol. 1 project.
I sat with Deru & Effixx to discuss the themes and concept behind 1979:

Been looking forward to this Young Marco album release for a while. I could only find a preview of each track for you guys but something is better than nothing. The older I get the more I want summer to sound like this album’s vibe. The record sits somewhere in between this visual I have of an old desktop computer sitting in the Caribbean’s and a clear plexi rain stick being pointed at the sun and looked through.

This intro and outro by ESPIRIT is becoming what I keep looking for in summer listening, its the tone, everything is tweaked effortlessly, just slowly cruises by your ears.
Didn’t expect this from the PAN label for some reason. Its a bit more “ghetto youth internet music” and less serious experimental.
You ever stare off and daydream about being really good at fighting and your muscles flinch because you felt like it was almost real? me neither. Well Tallesen just made the soundtrack for that experience.
Urulu is becoming one of the most reliable House producers that always dials in the right about energy on top of melody. Here its not too much House chords or lush Tech House, just a great formula post the early 90s inspired material.
Yesterday I came across the reel of Jason Drew and was floored by these visuals. Still images really don’t do it justice but check out the work that Jason, Andrew Jones and crew at Future Deluxe did for Nervo. Would love to see these in person, colors and animation are hypnotic.
Behold the aerialscapes of young German photographer, Jakob Wagner. I love the consistency of Wagner’s editing style and color pallets — he does a fantastic job of enhancing textures and shadow details while still keeping the photographs looking clean and natural. It goes without saying, but the locations he’s captured are also truly outstanding.
I highly recommend you check out his portfolio for more of this visual candy.

You can file it under 1990’s style weirdness or you can see the attractive direction Peter is taking this vision and running with it, keeping an eye on this man’s shop, I want that purple staircase poster above my bed.

When I first scrolled through these photos from Jean de Pomereu I thought they hadn’t loaded yet until I looked closer.
The series ‘Sans Nom’ (Nameless) was taken in the Pridz Bay Region of East Antarctica between 1 am and 4 am, when the air was completely still, and a thin mist descended upon a group of icebergs locked into the winter sea ice. The white landscape blends with its foggy surroundings so that you can almost not tell where the iceberg starts and the sky ends.
Most of the shots are of Laura Thornhill but i’m loving these knee pads and helmets almost as much of action shots and the girls.
