Debut album from Xi’an born, Toronto based electronic producer / DJ. Traditional Chinese instruments mix with analogue beats and samples A mix of house, electro, drum & bass and downtempo. Recommended!
A couple of late entries which I’m really enjoying:
Musta Huone - Valosaasteen sekaan
Kinda doomy experimental kosmische stuff? Here’s what the press release for the Helsinki quartet says:
"The music of Musta Huone, Ville-Matti Koskiniemi (guitar & vocals), Joonas Paasiala (drums), Santeri Paasiala (bass), & Pietu Arvola (synths and noise) is difficult to pin down. What started off in mid-2010s as a primitive lo-fi duo drawing from punk and black metal influences, has developed into a free-roaming hybrid mutation soaking inspiration from kraut rock, 90’s alternative and noise rock and experimental electronic music. "
fabric presents Sama’ Abdulhadi
Long running mix series hands over the reins to Palestinian producer Sama. Her mix starts off with quite minimalist percussive techno and then gets bigger.
Paul Elliott and Anthony Donje’s collaboration as Pleasurewood is named after a Suffolk theme park; this album “is a trip through a cinematic funk-o-rama of French inspired 60’s and 70’s gauche TV beats and 70’s and 80’s Simla beat Mumbai synth rock”.
Totally missed this posthumous Andrew Weatherall release, the third and final album with long-time collaborator Nina Walsh under their Woodleigh Research Facility name, which they were working on at the time of Weatherall’s death in 2020. Atmospheric dubby electro.
