I've been enjoying Four Tet, The Field, Pantha Du Prince, stuff like that...
sorry to disappoint
that's fucking awesome
Third by Portishead.
But, it's not. Shame. Great video.
What You Say Is More Than I Can Say
GAS: like the evil less anoying ambient twin of The Field.
Shackleton - Blood on my hands
Mount Kimbie - Sketch On Glass
Untold - Stop What You're Doing James Blake remix
Pangaea - Memories
Mala - Left Leg Out
I might be a bit off with my suggestions for you I dont really like Four Tet or The Field, I'm in two minds about Pantha Du Prince's new one too but This Bliss is awsome.
Play them loud, turn your sub up, feel the vibes!
Clouds - Protecting Hands Pt.1
Mark Pritchard - Heavy as Stone
That Mark Pritchard track is boss. His new one out on Deep Medi Musik is amazing as well.
Which is a monster! And sounds exactly as you expect from the name haha.
Clouds are quality, Geiom has done a remix of Protecting hands as well, which is coming soon ish. Clouds are really diverse, they come from Finland and their new label Channel Zero is looking to be a bit good, there is a Non Person 12" coming soon and it sounds ace.
Need to check out some more of his stuff
not a fan of the villalobos remix though
But now I only really play the original, its beautiful. When the bassline kicks in its almost heart breaking how mornful it sounds.
its one of the most emotional/beautiful pieces of electronic music I've heard.
If anyone ever tells me that electronic music is cold then I think I'd play them that track.
I saw him play in Leeds the other month it was so deep and intence, he didn't drop this one unfortunatly but it was still incredible.
Played 'Naked' though, which is my favourite of his :)
This one went off!
This is pretty awesome, if old: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkS0yUxZ-go
i'm in the mood tolisten to some new stuff
everything thing I've heard has been quality.
It's one of the most beautiful pieces of electronic music I've ever heard. Absolute bliss, dub atmosphere buried in oceans of white noise.
Brilliant and beautiful synth-pop from someone who is shaping up to be a really talented artist. I've collected six songs by him now and they're all wonderful.
Try getting your hands on:
'She Was A Vision'
'Voice of An Old Friend'
'When Your Love is safe'
'I'm In Your Church At Night'
'Body Heat (So Far Away)'
What do you have other than what you listed, cuz if you are a rookie then we need to recommend some basics here, whuchu got?
but do you have any Matias Aguayo?
I also picked up a 14 track comp off boomkat called Cosmic Soul Triangulation, thats got stuff like Blue Daisy, Anthony Shakir, Illum Sphere etc, you might like it
One from us lot as Sonic Router via The Quietus and one via Armchair Dance Floor via DiS!
Love his stuff.
Jelinek is god. For this kind of techno try Jetone, O, Mutilla by Vladislav Delay, Porter Ricks, Oval.
Also, a lady he releases stuff by (who might actually be him) called Ursula Bogner is pretty cool: http://www.boomkat.com/item.cfm?id=149081 Warm synthy early electronic kind of stuff, for which you might like to check out Delia Derbyshire comps, Mort Garson's The Wozard of Iz, Raymond Scott's Manhattan Research Inc. Keaver & Brause (unrelatedly, check out Beaver & Krause as well).
Modern-wise, Oneohtrix Point Never, Roj and Vinditrix all plow similar seams from a Wire-friendly angle, and from a completely different perspective, Mosca, Hackman, Pangaea, Loop Haunts are all dubstep producers who make really interesting stuff at the moment.
And if you can find it, listen to Moodymann's Anotha Black Sunday, and Dj Sprinkles' 120 Midtown Blues from last year for some sublime deep house.
That was a bit of a random splurge of consciousness but pick one to spotify/youtube/buy and I'm sure it'll be good.
Then get Black Sea and Venice, then everything else he's done.
How good was the original album artwork? Both are great, but it's got this lovely, cheesy 'postcard from holiday' vibe.
plus THE AMERICAN DOLLAR!
Mount Kimbie's 'Maybes' was one of the most affecting and nakedly pretty things to come out last year:
Might not be boundary-pushing or anything, but blissful nonetheless.
Also put out an album called The Coldest Season a while back, which always comes heavily reccomended on these boards, and is gorgeous, and always cheap on boomkat.
Omar S - Psychotic Photosynthesis
Then these ones...
Ricard Villalobos - 'Easy Lee'
I love that album Alcachofa, I've been playing it quite a bit recently.
There's just something really haunting about it, I think. His Fabric mix album (essentially an artist album when you see the tracklis) from early last year is excellent.
makes some rather unique-sounding techno if thats your sort of thing. Try out Bedford on a loud system, top track
Ive recently discovered Guy Gerber. Makes melodic music which im sure you'll like if youre into The Field.
E.g. Stoppage Time, Timing and my favourite, Late Bloomers:
...especially the second album A Strangely Isolated Place
Boards of Canada obviously....
I first heard A Strangely Isolated Place on full blast in a record shop and it completely blew me away.
This is a classic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGQ3iZZXaJM
newer one on a beatless tip, its emotional.
Efdemin - Acid Bells (Martyn Bitter Sweat reimx)
Oneman uses this track so well in a mix
It's got some pretty amazing moments. There are other bits which are a bit nothing-y, and it doesn't hold up that well as a whole album, but when it's good it's very very good.
Just seen Mira Calix is soundtracking some silent film at the Arnolfini in April: http://www.arnolfini.org.uk/whatson/films/details/649 Hyped.
Hope she hurries up and releases an album with Malcolm Middleton as well.
ON-THREAD: Her early stuff can be quite hard to get into, but you 'get' it, it's amazing and some of the more under-rated Warp stuff. Definitely recommended.
Be damned if I can find it though...
I think its because the folks on here that are into it are nice and helpful, always willing to impart some knowledge. I mean, you're guaranteed like at least 15+ replies from Dis-integration and Jimi alone.
also Nathan Fake has released 2 solid albums.
it appears i like techno a bit
basically cosmo vitelli's new/side project
- recently discovered the joys of Cio D'or- for fans of more atmospheric, experimental techno. (hers is mix no. 21- get it!) also, some great mixes by Bvdub, Scuba and Donato Dozzy are on there as well.
Ben Klock's album 'One' is immense- highly recommend that, as well as anything by Underworld, Shackleton, Matthew Dear/ Audion, Modeselektor/ Moderat/ Apparat, Telefon Tel Aviv... the list goes on!
is also amazing.
Here's a fairly random selection of Deep House to keep me entertained while eating a sausage roll.
Can't make it up for the weekend though, alas.
Such a good line-up. I think there's a seminar/talk sort of thing earlier in the day with Kevin Martin and Dixon as well.
Should be fun. That day's gonna be intense, working until 1, then 2-5:30 at the lectures & talks, Sir Richard Bishop at the Cube at 8, then Motion afterwards. Write off Sunday, I think.
But you really can't go wrong with Boards of Canada.
If you haven't heard any of their stuff yet then I envy you so, so much.
Also modeselektor, future sound of london, global communication, polygon window (aphex), etc etc
Minimal and Glitch at it's best.
I allways download playlists from
just awesome they have really cool electronic stuff
but the term Electronic Music is a bit vague. If I ever get a chance I'll post some suggestions with links and shit
I'm loving these at the moment:
Rough Trade did an excellent compilation entitles Electronica 1 - well worth checking out even for the diversity of the music within.
check out, new stuff Radio Scarecrow and Further Vexations are awesome, older stuff Spanners, Bytes and The Book of Dogma all excellent as well.
Alice Daddy says it's like a teddy on LSD.
Oh my what a prick.
I love Lindstrom and Prins Thomas, saw Pantha du Prince in Glasgow a while back and was totally blown away, the guy is great.
