Interstellar, by Lars Leonhard

a1163981903_10

One of my favorite Dub-Techno Producers Lars Leonhard has dropped a new project titled “Interstellar”. Not to be confused with the Hollywood blockbuster from a few years back, this “Interstellar” is deep, dark and delicious. 10 tracks of brilliantly sculpted techno tunes floating at a comfortable 120 bmp. I have always been impressed with Lars’ ability to blend darkness and melody to create unique atmospheres, and this album is no exception!

You can download the album via Bandcamp. You can also get nearly 20 of Lars’ albums bundled together at an insane discount, definitely something worth looking into if you find yourself enjoying this release.

Wooded Ghost, by Pemë

a3530935972_10

Delicious new dubby-electronics from Etoka Records.

“Mysterious and puzzling sound structures entering unknown landscapes, surrounded by hidden paths and irregular shades.
The Artists are reflecting their inspirations by an old Japanese legend about spirits, called KODAMA, that lived in over hundred year old trees. Fascinated by wildness and beauty of nature, Pemë express their vision through their music where every composition reveals its own story.”

Acid Pasta EP, by Kontext

a0271752941_10

Struggling through hump-day?! Well give yourself a break with this dank re-release from Russian Techno Producer Kontext.

Acid Pasta EP was originally released February 21st, 2010, with some tracks being produced much earlier than that, however the project has aged quite well. Kontexts twisted vision of techno is robust on these 4 tracks, utilizing alien sounds and truly unique production on top of classic grooves.

‘Acid Pasta EP is not a brand new piece of work. It’s a best part of personal skill improvement I worked on at home studio in years 2005-2006. I wanted to find out if I could create something totally different from drum’n’bass and downtempo that I used to produce then. Something more about minimal 4×4 techno/house kinds of music.’ Kontext

Twilight Sessions volume 20, by Bing Satellites

a0396469191_10

Bing Satellites has presented us with another piece of his ever evolving “Twilight Sessions” with this volume 20. 3 tracks of blissful new age chillout, with round melodic notes leading the loops through time. Name your own price for this download, or pick up a quality CD for about 10 bucks.

Almost an hour of blissful, chilled out ambient music.

More details / alternative downloads:www.bingsatellites.com/releases/twilightsessionsvolume20

The twentieth volume in the ever-expanding Twilight Sessions series, available on CD and download.

Further tales from the refurbished studio.

After too many months, I rewired my studio and connected everything together, along with a few new toys. This is the first album in many months that takes advantage of the range of synths I have on offer.

The music on this album is completely improvised.
I press record and play notes into a long, slowly decaying loop and see where the music takes me.

Lumine, by bansheebeat

a1800798338_10

Had this one recently recommended, Lumine by bansheebeat. Released by Galaxy Swim Team, Lumine is an ambitious melting pot, packed full of inspirations from all corners of the globe. It’s an impressive listen from start to finish, 9 tracks altogether, ranging from relaxed melodies to pulsing dance arrangements. There is a little something for everyone in here, as bansheebeat fuses future funk styles with j-pop emotions he creates something quite unique and satisfying!

I personally loved this album from start to finish. Maybe it is my own love of things like Japanese culture, vaporwave and good electronics, but for other fans of the same they will find this project to be a well-crafted and enlightened listen.

You can download the album now via bandcamp, the CD’s are sold out but you can still pick up a tape for now!

Favorite Track: 3. Rainy Love

 released 07 July 2015

All tracks composed, arranged, produced, and mixed by bansheebeat
All tracks mastered by Noah Hafford, with consultation from bansheebeat, Mike Vallejo, and Calvin Hansen

Everything recorded and sequenced in my bedroom while watching endless episodes of The Eric Andre Show and Parks and Recreation, in and around Mike and Joy’s apartment, and from other various places around Tucson, AZ where working on an album is probably inappropriate.

All songs written by bansheebeat, except track 2, composed by bansheebeat and Ivy Hollivana, and track 5, composed by bansheebeat and Patrick Sovereign

Futur​[​e​]​cho 2015 – Various Artists

a2105971281_10

Cold Tear brings us another glorious compilation of deep techno goodness. This super chill long player is a great representation of the label and its artists, containing tracks from some of my favorite producers such as Coppice Halifax and Warmth! With a generous 15 track playlist, this is the kind of record you can put on for an evening at home or a nice long drive. Now available via Bandcamp.

Favorite Track: 5. Oliver Dombi – Worthless

Our 2015 edition of Futur[e]cho brings in a lot of new faces, retains some old ones and has a great feel of atmospheric techno. Everyone went above and beyond what we thought possible for tracks and this release will for sure surprise you. Lots of artists try out new styles to entice the listener that the music can always change as time goes by. Futur[e]cho 2015 is more of a chilled out bliss release, but still very much fits the themes of the series. So why don’t you take a journey along with us?

The VHS Chronicles, by Panaphonix

a3204753521_10

The VHS Chronicles by Panaphonix is a electronic freak-fest that was released towards the end of July by Welcome Beauty Sounds. This 10 track project showcases some serious weirdness under an umbrella of vapor tone. Heavy on the rhythms, this album is less about ambience as it is about wonked out future-funk beats. Panaphonix does a great job of keeping the listener interested from the beginning to the end, which for any artist is a job well done! You can stream or donate to download the album via Bandcamp.

Favorite Track : 3. Janet Trapson

YamaGucci, by Toiret $ Egatus

a3698880927_10

Wasabi Tapes brings us this twisted trip, YamaGucci. A unique hybrid of juke rhythms and spontaneous noise-glitches. Not for the timid or meek, these 12 tracks meander chaotically between order and disorder.

Favorite track:  7. Like Okinawa! Sea Tsunoshim
