After seriously enjoying SAD MANs release last month – UNTITLED ALBUM – I was very much looking forward to this smaller drop that was scheduled on his bandcamp to release June 3rd. What we’ve received is a beautiful 9-track “remix” project in which SAD MAN dives back into some select songs from his latest LP, revisiting the themes to provide entirely new interpretations!
As with his previous release, the songs dwell in the realm of true sonic exploration – where I felt his work was of a deconstructed nature, the vibe is even more potent on this latest project. The sounds more than ever appear to have been sliced out of the air, jumbled around on the floor, and crafted back together into some kind of mosaic masterpiece.
Lots of very satisfying sounds in here as well. I have found myself being lulled into a state of trust and relaxation, with wooden percussion rolling around me and buzzing squelching synths flying past my ears. This time around the Jazz vibes are bigger too – especially with tracks like “Ceep” which features some tender piano noodlings, or “Dog” which feels like an experimental open jazz session led by a slick pocket drummer on the kit.
Another highly recommended listen – digital edition is currently available for download via the artists Bandcamp page and is Pay what you Want! So don’t wait and grab yours today…
Released October 6th, 2016, INSTINCT is a new 3-track project from Tamás Olejnikv moniker, Organit. What we find is deep and dark dub within, with flavors of old school dubstep and dub techno drizzled here and there. Condor is a great opening track, perfectly riding the line between calm melody and haunting dissonance. Tribe follows with a more brisk pace and staccato structure, evoking the feeling of running through a dense jungle in the pitch black night. The third and final track, Rite, is just as spooky as it is satisfying, with a brilliant bassline leading the ritual, the whole track swirls into an urgent yet relaxed composition.
You can grab this EP along with others at the artists Bandcamp page.
Written, produced & mastered by Tamás Olejnik.

This one came recommended, and boy am I glad it did. 6 tracks of gorgeous looping beauty, feathered with whimsical emotion. I am in love with this little album, its the same but different, a unique take on lo-fi ambience.
Some fantastic new fingerstyle-pickin from Marcus Eads
