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 […]
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.
ikeaboy debut album After a number of acclaimed 12″ EP releases on both D1 recordings and Invisible Agent over the past few years, Damian Tubbritt a.k.a ikeaboy has stepped up to the plate and released an album on Nute.

It has recently been brought to our attention by the RIAA that certain tracks released on Invisible Agent Records contain bin-aural beats and must be removed from all distribution channels and online shops.
Ghostkid’s debut release on BFW Recordings, ‘The Unlikely Future Of Reverse Engineering’ is a 7 track EP consisting of laid back beats layered with melodic curves.

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 […]
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 […]
Music is a great communications channel, James Fahy, better known by his super hero name ‘Ambienteer’ regularly expresses himself using ambient music. Okay, I’m cheating, he doesn’t run a netlabel, but he does share his art with the world.
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!
When it comes to dirty, low, rib cage rumbling bass mixed with a dose of jump up, not many people do better then !kaboogie.

For the last tracker in 2010, I’m proud to present Philadelphia-based label ‘Foundsound Records’. Foundsound showcases quirky, dancefloor-friendly minimal Techno and Microhouse. Their first 12″ vinyl was released in June 2004 and with 23 releases and counting they’ve been a busy crew. On the flip side they run Unfoundsound Records and release high quality music under Creative Commons.
