Branching out from Kiasmos (recommendations needed)


#1

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? :slight_smile:


#2

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.


#3

Rival Consoles


#4

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?).

lusine
Telefon tel aviv
older deru albums


#6

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:


#7

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


#10

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! :smiley:

Check out Max Richter’s remix of Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnaulds - Stare (A2). One of my favourite earworms ever.
