Not sure if this is allowed under the forum rules, but I’m looking for album recommendations. Really enjoyed Kiasmos’ album + EP, but it’s been a few years and I’m looking for some recommendations for music of a similar vein - could some of you point me in the right direction?
We’ll allow it, but just this once…
Try Murcof’s Martes. It’s less four-to-the-floor, but hits all the right notes in terms of blending techno with classical.
Also Insen by Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Again, more minimal with the beats, but a wonderful blend of those genres.
Think there was another thread along similar lines a few months ago? I’d say Gidge is definitely worth a punt. New album is great, but a bit colder and sparser than their first (which is a bit more… bucolic?).

older deru albums
Ok here is a few:
Samaris. More lyrical but still glacial electronic music from iceland:
Christian Loffer. Same sort of clean production and euphoric but calm music:
Wobbley moving synth work:
More overtly on the techno side but have a smooth nature approach to techno:
The absolute legend that is Dominik Eulberg
Or Pantha Du Prince. Particularly his cross over hit ‘Black Noise’
I always find myself lining up Jon Hopkins after listening to Kiasmos
…or sometimes The Field
Jonny H is a good Kiasmos-esque recommendation. The Field’s debut is just straight-up essential listening for anyone with ears.
All great recommendations - thanks!
Check out Max Richter’s remix of Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnaulds - Stare (A2). One of my favourite earworms ever.
