Gotta support some Polish-born guys on the blog, keep an eye on both of these names for 2017.
Earth Trax is half of Ptaki also The Phantom a.k.a. Bartosz Kruczyński.
Peckham’s finest are back with another 12″ custom built for discerning dancers. The SE15 label have looked to Poland for inspiration again and returned to the pool hall with a ridiculously good pair of subtle low-key rollers that traverse ethereal, barely-there house territory in the best way possible.
Comprised of Baltic-Balearic-Beat legend Bartosz Kruczynski and the man normally known as Matat Professionals, Earth Trax and Newborn Jr’s debut EP for the label, Sax & Flute, beams into the world on October the 14th.
Being kind souls, we’ve decided to let you have a listen to the A-side. Stream it right now! Yes, right now! Right this second!
“Division,” the first single from Tycho’s Epoch, gets the ethereal synthesizer treatment from California’s Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Berlin-via-Detroit’s ambient techno artist Heathered Pearls.

This song was finished on november 8th, 2016 with the intention of using it for my next record. i sampled an inspiration to me, detroit artist, tyree guyton speaking at an event a couple months ago and used it in the intro because it spoke to me.
on the morning of november 10th a light went off in my head and realized the song had to be let go.
no matter how i feel or what i’m thinking about the 2016 election.
no matter who i voted for or even if i voted at all…
i’m thinking about what i’m made of right now.
i’m thinking about what we all are made of right now, what the world is made of right now.
i’m thinking about who i want to be and how i want to play my small part in this world right now.
this song and message comes from a place of love.
Glass by Illumsphere came out last week on Ninja Tune. It has wonderful breaks throughout the album that keep it refreshing but this consistent loop really grabbed me and took me back to the hay day’s of early Kompakt albums.

There are plenty of tracks I keep in my arsenal if I need an escape, i’ll be adding this one from People’s Palms. It brings the light in with a bit of haze, sort of slows down whatever you’re doing and invites you into its own groove.

Oakland-based musician Austin Freese aka People’s Palms makes his Hush Hush debut with the cinematic 10-track album ‘Habitatual,’ his third album under the moniker and his first official label release. A thoroughly hypnotic affair heavily influenced by the natural world, the album organically swims through a fantastic mosaic of mallet instruments, long form guitar swells, found sound, and his trusty Yamaha CS-50. Piecing together unique field recordings captured over the last three years during mundane everyday life as well as exotic international travels, and then patiently adding his own instrumental flourishes, ‘Habitatual’ carries a transportive sound that quietly shifts through downtempo, ambient, and New Age styles while simultaneously floating free of rigid genre confines. Shades of Steve Reich, Boards of Canada, and early Tortoise peak through his richly-detailed tapestries, creating a meditative imaginary soundtrack ideal to compliment unexpected excursions. A subtle yet consistent global influence further enhances People’s Palms’ exploratory productions, fueled by a fascination with the globalization of music and traditional international rhythms sparked through his own travels as well as the interconnectivity of our online generation. Fitting right at home on the introspective-inclined Seattle-based label Hush Hush Records, the blissful sonic world People’s Palms has created with ‘Habitatual’ yields a dreamy, immersive, and mesmerizing listening experience.
