What is this? Cannot say that I’m sure, some kind of stretched out electronic, beat-ish robotic soundscape. Out on Numbers who know their shit. And this is dope.
I cannot say that I’m 100% sure that this is a real track from Ricardo, but it does sound like him – a 30 minute edit of his remix of the wonderful Tornado Brain.
Margaret Dygas really does manage the simple, hypnotic beauty well – and this track is almost seemingly on the quiet side, yet a few listens brings out a lot of joy.
Has a fair amount of energy behind it, almost like it could fit into an old Sven Vath set from say 2008 – yet is much newer. Nice to see this kind of music out again – and on Kompact.
This combo between Radio Slave and DJ Hell has the best elements of both of them, a deep brooding techno mix, with a sinister whirling feel and “This Is Radio Hell” on repeat. That kick drum after the breakdown is solid power too.
Melancholic Villalobos – maybe from his skiing accident? Who knows. Various vocal samples, including what sounds like Eminem or similar, and quite a wistful feel.
A deep house track from 2005 which has completely passed me by until now, yet I feel like I’ve heard it so many times. Kind of ahead of its time, melodic yet that deep bassline groove that was very hip in 2010, with male vocodered vocals.
Late 80’s electro about being a businessman. I quite like when a track has a different topic from the usual – this is again quite slow and relaxed, yet has a funk to it.
“And I buy and I sell”.
Such warmth in this short track by Franck Roger – played on a podcast he did, I think for Circo Loco. It’s a slow track, a warm track and with vocals that I don’t mind.
This track has a nice floaty feel and a groove to it – maybe nothing out of the ordinary, but I just like the feel of it.
This has quite a forceful techno feel despite it very much being in minimal category – at least it is for my ears. Hypnotic, forceful and with discorded vocal snippets running through. Very nice.
I’ve been slowly going through Paul Johnson’s back catalogue following his passing, and this particularly stood out as a charming and almost quite flippant piece of 12 minute long happy house music.
