Weekly Electronic Music Tips #45
Picks Of The Week:
- Louisiana‘s goth/darkwave/dark electronic/industrial solo project Anonymous Hands “Just a body” from 2-track single “Decay”
Chunky industrial hitting percussive stabs, relentless ominously buzzing turbulent bassline, woeful synths, and sick vocal treatments perfectly adorning the track with a dark, raw and sleazy old-school industrial vibe.
- South London ambient/drone/breakbeat/drum & bass/jungle-dub producer Mallard “Dragees” from the cassette album “Balancing” via Jungle Gym Records label.
The new album by UK producer Mallard, deftly exploring the space between dub, ambient, and drum & bass, is an unfolding trip through subdued broken beats, deep gauzy swells of synth, blissful atmospheric drifts, hypnotic dub-tinged jungle rhythms with such distinctive allure and immersive charm to it that makes it worth discovering.
- Swedish experimental/ambient producer MOTIONFIELD “Signals 4” from “Signals” album on UK’s Neotantra
As soothing and caressing, as they are arcane and hypnotizing, waves of aural pleasure create spacious and harmonic soundscapes of organic cosmic beauty that warmly lull and embrace in semiconscious oblivion of sensory abandonment, instilling profoundly meditative suggestions of rarefied and sheer bliss. Mesmeric ambient prowess from the Swedish producer.
