Another really classy minimal groove by a man on form, S.A.M. Rather like sweeping gently through the city skyscape on a magic carpet, this is quite blissful at times.
I pondered for a while whether I really liked this or just liked the idea of it.
But it does work really well, it is subtle enough. Sadly the full-length version has been taken down so this small length will have to do you.
Packed full of gentle, subtle beauty – perfect for starting a night with.
Hypnotic chugger that could just be played and played and played forever.
A quick flashback to the original mid-2000’s minimal days when Loco Dice was smashing things at Circo Loco and this chuggy, minimal sound was the coolest thing around – this is an overlooked track in my opinion and deserves some more attention.
This gave me that kind of sicky coming up feeling, with its low tones of emotion – quite sad and mournful yet hopeful at the same time – and a wonderful cut back in of the beat.
Controversial but Dependent And Happy is my favourite Villalobos album. There is so much undiscovered beauty in it including this spaced out dreamy taxi-beeping New York trip. Even more controversial – the track is less than 5 minutes long.
Dependent And Happy is such an under-rated album, so full of beauty and wonder that it is easy to overlook certain tracks, which for me, this has been an overlooked beauty – full of delicate charm and a gruff German vocal line that I am happy to never know what it means.
A sombre, gloomy track – almost perfect to play towards the end of a wonderful drug-fuelled holiday in Ibiza. With enough serotonin depletion, this would make you cry.
It never fails to amaze me how you can listen to a track once, think it is ok, then listen again and think it is amazing. Maybe it is because I’ve recently seen an excellent set by Melodie – this track is a warm, gentle bassline-friendly groover.
iO (Mulen) are putting out a rash of really good minimal tracks and this is the pick of them for me, it has quite a lot of energy for a minimal track and grooves along very nicely.
Crunchy electronic minimal.
