KARA-LIS COVERDALE - Grafts [Boomkat Editions, 2017]
Each movement smoothly blending into the next, sometimes as if the previous piano loop never stops fading, tiny remnants of each sound linger inside the piece never quite leaving altogether. It is grounding yet very much of the concrete world, but instead of feeling tiny and outnumbered, Grafts makes you feel comfort and connection - a rare feeling that is of value in the digital marketplace.
TARZANA - Private Scarab Reserve Club [Pacific City Sound Visions, 2015]
Deep meditations on rhythm, electronic wizardry and digital world building you can add to. It’s an organic feeling but with flourishes of purely synthetic colouring. It might feel like an emulation but relax, its the alien dreaming.
IKU SAKAN - Fluid Gold [Natural Sciences, 2017]
Welcome to spiritual extractions. No time to stop and consider, give yourself over to the rhythms and before you know it you might find yourself crawling deep within a world of discarded circuitry and strings.
JAMES FERRARO - Live at Primavera Sound 2012
This session helps you go deep into the collective past. Outdated technology and entertainment designed to help pass the time has left a residual feeling of being stuck in a never ending polished concrete maze. The floor becomes slippery when you try to move forward but you need to keep on, there is no shortcut in finding the exit. That hi-hat is key.
JON HASSELL - Timeless [TRESOR, 2017]
To experience the timeless is a luxury but that is why you need to open up to the Fourth World first. Do not think this is about anything to do with the past history or culture and take a moment to consider the Inner World. This song leads us deep into a warm, fluid and warped place without momentum. No past, no future, spiral out and disintegrate in all directions, its good to be here.
LAUREL HALO - Raw Silk Uncut Wood [Latency, 2018]
Softly spoken backdrop to a young life cycle. Tune in and be swept up in the cerebral, your worries will be considered and man is better off with machine. 'Need Little. Want Less', is your mantra.
THE NECKS - Mosquito [Fish Of Milk, 2004]
Follow the map to the end of the line, watch it twist, turn and fold on itself, remain close enough to the lead marker but only to observe it. Definition may be lost at times but do not try take note, follow the trance deeper. You may feel washed out and saturated, mesmerized or confused as your eye sight fades in and out, you may be followed.
PENDANT - AAE-KZT [West Mineral, 2018]
Listen closely, there are messages from history waiting to be picked up, they are not always kind. This is the sound of being summoned, it’s esoteric and it talks when you are not listening, its message is in front of you to decipher and you do it at your own risk*.
