Happy Equinox! Best of Dub, Ragga, Dubstep, Drum & Bass: Equinox, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

September Equinox is a time of balance when “day and night are equal”, well almost equal. It marks the beginning of winter preparations and is a time to respect the impending dark while giving thanks to the sunlight.

Sort out your digital life, get ready to tag

We all know tagging is important, right?  After observing a friend spend endless hours submerged in iTunes, meticulously tagging and rating their music collection track by track, I realized I was naive to think most online music distributors tag their files correctly. You know your digital life is a mess when you see files called […]

Ghostkid: Things That Go Dub In The Night – Reviewed

It’s been about 4 months since I heard Donny Jankowski’s last output, The Unlikely Future of Reverse Engineering. His latest album ‘Things That Go Dub In The Night’ on BFW Recordings is different in many ways but you can immediately identify Ghostkid’s sound and that’s a wonderful gift.

Art is born from democracy: Leonardo Rosado’s new album – opaque glitter

Opaque glitter is an excellent ambient album that has plenty of experimental elements and found sounds. It remains inviting and evokes further intrigue, making you content to start the journey all over again. Recommended.

Tumbleweed or Twitter?

If you’re not one of the folk following me on Twitter, it would seem like I’ve dropped off the face of the planet. I’ve found it difficult time wise to update the site as much as I would like. Never fear, the AgentCast / Podcast series is always in progress. That being said, if you […]

Netlabel Tracker #10: Archaic Horizon

Discovering great new music is gratifying, but some days the thought of scouring the web for freshly pressed tunes can impede even the most determined of us. Recommendations are king, right? So I was delighted to received a commendation for Archaic Horizon from a friend and music producer Bluefood several weeks ago.  I knew that […]

Ambienteer – Ataraxia

How I missed this is beyond me. I follow James Fahy’s music dairy closely, my only explanation for leaving his album slip through the net is having Christmas shenanigans with friends who came to visit me in Cambodia. Anyhow, I’ll get on with it… Ambienteer gifts us with an 8 track album of wondrous ambient […]

wAgAwAgA – Hyper Typewriter – Acroplane Recordings

If Phuture and Adamski sold their possessed 303s and Junos to bass crazed space invaders from another dimension, this is what the alien transmission might sound like. Actually, Hyper Typewriter would sound better. wAgAwAga employs earth-shaking bass-lines and a near fanatical use of intricate acid tweaking. The 303 programming is complex and keeps you constantly […]

Random Access Recordings - Invisible Agent Netlabel Tracker

Netlabel Tracker #8: Random Access Recordings

The netlabel tracker continues its endless quest in search of quality netlabels that are active and innovative. I’m concentrating hard to spread the tracker across as many genres as possible and encompasses music with acoustic guitars as much as synthesized beeps and booms. After homing in on a particular label & genre I squeeze every last bit out of my Internet connection amassing the collections of quality and free music that are on offer. So far I’ve happily filled 10Gb of my hard drive with netaudio, no credit card needed to ride this train!
