Benoit Pioulard+No Age+Kiyo+Ellen Allien

Posted by Jakub

I should just post this whole new Benoit Pioulard record because its just that good. In the song Tower Benoit serenades but most importantly sets the atmosphere in the intro with plenty of details of him shuffling around and then the addicting guitar playing steps in, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, buy it here.

I found another track from the new No Age record that the blog couldn’t be without, its dizzying and noisy with simple additions, hard to not fall in love with it.

I remember when I first heard my first few albums from Schematic records, I couldn’t wrap my head around how long it would have taken to write a song like this one by Kiyo. I imagined many nights slaving over obsession on sequencing and glitching out every minuet speck of sound, I thought my mind would give up if I had to produce this, i’m glad someone stepped up and did it.

I needed to end this post on the upswing, the production on this Ellen Allien track is pretty breathtaking, so bubbly and inviting, each new part that floats in is like a smoke ring fully intact passing by your eyes, beautiful techno will have its day again soon.

Jesus, I was listening to this post at a low volume and the beginning of that No Age song sounded JUST LIKE a massive hard drive failure on the old MBP. No lie, my heart is still beating fast from that.

For what you said about the Kiyo song… “someone stepped up and did it.”? Oval did something like this years ago, if I am not mistaken.

Yeah, the Kiyo sounds like something from the Mille Plateaux label in the late ’90s. Very Microstoria/Oval. Good stuff, nonetheless.

i miss this old Ellen Allien sound. I was obsessed with berlinette and stadkind. Can’t believe it’s been 10 years! This was the highlight track for me off this album. What happened to the last two? Just didn’t get them i guess.
