Hypnagogue reviews Triptych by WASH
its beauty–both lyrical and musical–grew on me and the release revealed itself as a thoroughly engaging, extremely intelligent suite of pieces that exude confidence and truly pull the listener in. You need to give this a try.

The imagination that is poured into these pieces is obvious for all to hear.
Hypnagogue Reviews Theophany by Toaster
Toaster (aka Todd Elliott) tells a story in both song title and sound on his new release, Theophany. In my previous outings with Elliott’s music I often found myself looking for a point of entry, something to hang on to when things went a little far afield for my tastes. I had no such issues with Theophany. Maybe […]
Headphonaugh reviews Theophany album by Toaster
I’ll admit Toaster’s “Theophany” was not what I expected. I thought I would hear his rather abstract big-sound, techno-inspired electronica … I didn’t … I don’t. “Theophany” is different because it is more about restraint. His techno-inspired electronic sound is definitely there but in a more relaxed, more ambient setting … and I, for one, […]
Hypnagogue Review: Zoid – Selected Zoidworks 05-12
I’m not sure how easy it will be for some listeners to get into and stay with the churning, jazz-informed, bass-synth-driven electronica on Zoid’s Selected Zoidworks 05-12. My first few listens were a little on the off-putting side, trying to catch hold of Daniel Jacobson’s unlikely tempos and unnatural musical angles as I was being repeatedly […]
The underground club scene in Phnom Penh…
Coming very much from the leftfield art and music scene, Invisible Agent’s Swagger night has been creating quite the stir amongst Phnom Penh’s avant garde with its combination of cutting edge sounds, live visuals and even live painting.
The Colour of Music
The Colour of Music – By Phoenix Jay The artist sweeps one arm over a canvas unrolled on the studio floor like a psychedelic welcome mat – a vast technicolour mash-up of lively forms and textures. From the next room, the dull rhythmic thud of bass bins threatens to stir the sticky air. “I will […]

Dukla Prague Away Kit Review – Al Kemet by Ketsa
This is Ketsa, a Londoner Dominic Giam who produces rather fine electronica for the more classical ear, mixing jazz influences with rolling beats and all round glitch-iness that is not a million miles off Four Tet, Funki Porcini, and Minotaur Shock.
Netlabelism Review – Al Kemet by Ketsa
There is a distinct purity to this exotic multi-dimensional sound, which is presented with effortless clarity. He does not hide behind anything; the ideas and sounds are raw, but expertly mixed and delivered with style.
Album Review – Ketsa ‘Al Kemet’
Staggered piano loops over catchy breakbeat There’s a confidence and crispness to the meshing of genres at play here that marks out the Londoner as a name to look out for. The artwork by Cambodian artist Dina Chhan is equally impressive.
It brings me up, makes me smile
One of my favourite independent electronic musicians… Dominic Giam aka Ketsa has a new album coming out soon and I was privileged to get a preview copy from my friend Warren over at Invisible Agent… in short: it is an utterly delightful expression of the cosmopolitan plurality of now… and I love it. I am […]
Eomac – Mnk Ep – reviewed by Noise
The Mnk EP is his first release for Irish collective Invisible Agent. It’s a dark and trippy affair, drawing on halfstep and breakbeat rhythms throughout. Trudging along, it channels Zomby-esque psychedelia and dark electro influenced electronica from the genres heyday at the turn of the century.
Danseizure’s LP “This is Danseizure” – detailed review by Dovetail (Katie Weed)
At once energetic, ambient, and brimming with both field recordings and original sounds, the appeal of Danseizure’s LP “This is Danseizure” lies in his ability to grasp the ephemeral, detailed mystery of countless moments, all in the span of ten tracks.
